'Truth' is subjective when we are talking about emotions.  My truth can be that I have a decent life and family.  I am happy in my community and I feel grateful for all the opportunities I have and the society I live in.  Who are you to say that isn't the 'greatest' ?

If your "truth" is driven by emotions, I wouldn't call it truth. I would call it what you want the truth to be.

Your truth will probably work pretty well within your community and within your culture. But what happens when you interact with people from other cultures and other nations. You can't cope with them and your truth breaks down.

That is why impartiality is important. With impartiality you can find a truth that is fair to everyone rather than a self centered truth.

What are you talking about?  I believe everyone should have pride in their country.  Why would I have problems with that?  I would expect when I interact with people that they would tell me their country is the greatest.It's not a contest, it's about how you feel about your home.

If you don't understand what I said please read it again. What I am talking about is the ability to see from other's perspective. When you see from your own perspective all the time it can sometimes cause conflicts and needless tension.
