But that's not just true for politics and questions of morality its even
true for physics. There is no hope in finding THE TRUTH but we can find new
theories that are less wrong than older theories. And that endeavor is not
in my opinion anything to be ashamed of.

That's the part i don't understand, yes none of the candidates are perfect
human beings with policies that will produce perfect justice, but some
humans are less imperfect and less unjust than others. Ii think the perfect
should not be the enemy of the good and that's why I do vote.

I sure hope you're right but I'm scared, it seems to me that damn blip is
getting bigger.
