A GOOD QUOTE

Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of truth. -- Mohandas K. Gandhi

Amen to that one G, yes conscience is a strong human motivator, maybe more folk should set there internal compasses a little better. Any way I've got a lil something for you at couch, as a fellow Star Wars type person.

That quote brings about a larger discussion. Is there an objective 'truth'? Or is 'truth' relative to each individual?

Hah! You question the wisdom of Gandhi, you crazy man!? Just kidding, of course. The question you raise is a good one, Phil. I tend to be into secular humanism, but I always have trouble sorting out my thoughts when it comes to moral relativism. Thanks for giving me pause to think this over a bit!
