Truths change the second anyone shares them with someone else in nearly all forms of communication. We all have our own life experiences and cognitions, therefore, what everyone sees and hears will be interpreted differently by all.
If I were to share a truth about my life or what I think, then it will be corrupted and distorted as it leaves my lips. Language creates misinterpretation, rumors and can never fully embody one's emotion or thoughts. Language should be used only when necessary and for the sake of entertainment.
For the reasons I given, THERE ARE NO UNIVERSAL TRUTHS and at the risk of using cliches, everything is subjective including subjectivism itself.
