Not Being God
It keeps us humble, keeps us not being God. As human power both increases and concentrates in the world, the temptation to equate power with truth as well as success can become overwhelming. The real danger in Donald Trump, for example, is not his unstable finger on the nuclear button there are enough adults around who can stay that tiny finger , it is the possibility that he will solidify for generations to come, a narrative idea which has threatened American democracy since its inception: that exceptionalism, of any sort but particularly that which presumes a national blessing from God, necessitates and even justifies human cruelty.
There is nothing other than interpretation against which to assess interpretation. Interpretations are, therefore, necessarily fictions, not in any pejorative sense, but in that they can never incorporate the totality of what they refer to.
They are incomplete at best and are, if put forth as anything more, simply lies. Since neither God nor his creation can ever be fully, that is definitively, interpreted, all interpretations are not just temporary, they are dangerous in fact heresies since they take a partial truth as a complete truth. They are particularly dangerous because power will want to fix them as truth for its own benefit.
