Truth and harshness usually go hand in hand, almost as if they are tied together.
There are times to be truthful and there are times to be politically correct.
When you're walking your dog around the neighborhood and u run into a friend, or you meet up with the guys at a BBQ, or the girls have a tea party session... of course, you want to be friendly, politically correct, not some crazy neo-Nazi.
But of course,
There are times we need to hear the cold-hard truth. Many times these things are hard to swallow, but alas, we need the truth.
If everyone is right, nobody is wrong. And if nobody is wrong,
We won't be able to recognize evil when it stares us in the face.
