An unbalanced argument
Yassmin Abdel-Magied’s understanding of truth is simplistic, unrealistic and plainly wrong. She claims “the colliding of opinions will only lead to the emergence of truth if the force behind both is equal”. Must those offended by an opinion (for example, Holocaust denial) hold their tongues until their opponents equal them in force? How could this fantasy possibly work? Only reasoned analysis backed with examples establishes truth.
