Fear and Objectivity

One of our most human traits is empathy.  The ability of a person to separate themselves from their inherent solipsism, to embrace and accept another person’s frame of reference, that is a truly divine ability. 

We pride ourselves on being open-minded, accepting and progressive.  

As I read punditry about the debate I cannot fathom how anyone would believe that McCain was the stronger debater.  I watched it live with everyone else.  I fear mine, and perhaps everyone’s objectivity has gone out the window as we approach the election.  

If there is no objective truth or standard, then who is right and who is wrong and how do we know which direction we are headed?

My only solace is that no matter what either party says, it can be close to certain that the next 4 years will be better than the last 8.
