Thanks for this important webinar. One thing I run up against all the time is the argument that objective truth is part of white supremacy culture. The people who argue this say that the dominant ideas of a society are shaped by white supremacy (they usually don’t mention capitalism) and these get defined as objective. So to claim anything is objective is to justify these dominant relations. There are a lot of different things posed here from what we are defining as objective truth—whether it is possible to reach objective truth in this society, to the implications politically and ideologically for the struggle. Do you have a suggestion for how to challenge this in a way that gets at the essential issue?
[After, Lenny Wolf, one of the panelists in the introductory seminar, responded to the question.] Thank you for the answer, Lenny! My main point of the question being is that we cannot "reconcile" with fascists, merely do our damnedest to "open their eyes" to the system that they so vehemently support. But I do totally agree, that there is struggle from the meek and practically meaningless progression by the DNC/"dem-socs" which are perceived as "radical" by the right, and "progressive" by the left, when in reality they are just band-aids on wounds that still have knives actively stabbing in them.
