Simple truths, 1776 edition

Now and then, it is true, one error may be driven out, for a time, by an opposite error: one piece of nonsense by another piece of nonsense: but for barring the door effectually and for ever against all error and all nonsense, there is nothing like the simple truth.

--From A Fragment on Government--

Sometimes I feel as if simple truths are like a feather blowing in a hurricane. When you find them you have to hold on for dear life.
