The biggest problem facing the USA is a complex one, and there is no single answer that will satisfy everyone. However, some of the most commonly cited problems include:
These are just a few of the biggest problems facing the USA today. It is important to note that these problems are interconnected, and addressing one problem will often require addressing others.
It is also important to note that there is no easy solution to any of these problems.
Nietzsche's statement, while technically, perhaps, true, seems to be a bit of a reach. It is possible that, in some absolute sense, facts either do not exist at all or, at least, cannot be established by an intelligent observer as holding true - however, there is some reality that punishes people for choosing certain interpretations over alternatives. There is something that assures that a person who does not believe in gravity and lives as though it did not exist, well... does not live for long.Dee said:The Socratic method has its uses, if used to introduce children to a pretty effective way to arrive at the truth of a matter. It's all very good on paper but pretty ineffective in the real world.
You bring up an example..,.....Cheetahs are faster than humans". One Socratic question undermining this claim could be, "Does this imply that dead cheetahs are faster than living humans?" A refinement of the claim could then be, "Living cheetahs can run faster than living humans". Then one could ask, "Can then a living cheetahs with all of its limbs amputated run faster than an Olympic marathon runner?" And so on and so on........
This clearly demonstrates how annoying the method can be as an example like this in the real world would lead the one being questioned believing his questioner was a smug smart a-s. An exchange like this in everyday conversations would lead to nothing except frustration and confusion, the market place of ancient Greece where people stood about for hours debating is hardly comparable to everyday exchanges.
Nietzsche was correct when he stated " there are no facts only interpretations " everyone has their own opinions and interpretations of the same thing , no one understands it exactly like anyone else.
Agreement on a topic is only broadly accepted get down to the nuts and bolts and agreement is pretty rare,
