Scientology Logic 6

Logic 6 - Absolutes are unobtainable.

Everyday in the news, especially when one political party is attacking another, we are told that something is "absolutely" wrong. The Democrats/Republicans seem to think that everything the Republicans/Democrats say is absolutely wrong but to most people, when they stand back and don't take sides, it is clear that some of what both sides say makes sense and some doesn't. Neither is totally right nor totally wrong.

There seems to be a human tenancy to go to extremes, to see everything in terms of black and white when in fact there is no absolute black or absolute white but only (as we shall see while examining the next logic) shades of gray.
