Axiomatic Relativity

Any ideological or political position for the most part represents that presentation layer or surface representation of a system of thought; itself possessing it’s own axiomatic assumptions, theorems and conclusions. Any system of thought can be constructed in ways that may make any truth (or potential absurdity as viewed from outside that system) appear to represent a sane, logical or inevitable conclusion. This is a significant problem in cross-cultural analyses of conflicting ideologies: your truth may be equivalent to my falsity (even in those places where we may share related logico-cultural systems of thought) and your conclusions may represent to me a rank unintelligibility on a spectrum from implausibility through to impossibility.

Axiomatic relativity. It’s a thing. Who woulda thunk it ?
