Indeed "truth" is (signifies) agreement among people.
Truth cannot be attained if dissentients, however obnoxious, are silenced.

Is Giuliani Correct? Is Truth Not Truth? is a nifty essay --differentiating conditional statements "true", "false", "truth" -- which rounds about european tradition with practical application and without overweening attention to self-serrvin' epistemology.

Reflection: From time to time, the truth that Giulani and Trump belong in the same pigsty is not true.

As a rational progressive educated in the choicest elements of the Enlightenment tradition, you may find this objectionable.

Tough.
