Dramatica Definition: Truth

Truth • [Variation] dyn.pr. Falsehood<–>Truth • that which is actually correct • Truth is more than facts and accuracy. Truth is meaning. Whenever someone is quoted out of context, what is reported may be factual and may be accurate but it is not Truthful. Meaning depends upon intent and purpose. That is the beauty of the legal system — that even if someone is caught red-handed, the jury can acquit because it feels there were mitigating circumstances. The problem with Truth is that it is an interpretation and therefore open to debate. One person’s Truth is another’s Falsehood. • syn. honesty, correct information, correct notion, verity
