A Princeton professor has published a paper titled "On Bullshit" that probably describes a friend most of us have had - the person who says outrageous things and refuses to recognize rational arguments. The author hypothesizes there are three types of people as far as the truth is concerned.

The first type is an honest person, who sees the truth and tries to conform to it in words and deeds. The second type is a liar, who sees the truth and consciously misrepresents it in specific circumstances.

The third type is the "bullshit artist. " He simply ignores, or can't see, the truth. He says and does things that suit him at the moment as a general way of thinking, speaking and acting. So, Bullshit may be more than a mere pejorative - it might be a psychosis. Don't spew, or accept, bullshit - insist on the truth.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
