The only truth is that there is no truth.

…described how progressive movements sow the seeds of their own destruction when they become censorious. It’s impossible, Willis wrote, ‘to censor the speech of the dominant without stifling debate among all social groups and reinforcing orthodoxy within left movements.’ Under such conditions, a movement can neither integrate new ideas nor build support based on genuine transformations of consciousness rather than guilt or fear of ostracism.” (Goldberg 2021)  Goldberg also writes, “Cowing people is not the same as converting them.”

The postmodern worldview is based on the idea that what we call “truth” is merely a social construction. Unitarian Universalism is the only postmodern religious denomination in the world whose message is “we need not think alike to love alike.” UU teaches that beliefs no longer matter as long as you believe what they tell you to believe about social justice topics.

When it comes to social justice issues and its own governance the UUA has become very censorious which is contributing to its downfall and dissolution.
