The End of Reason?

There seems to be a cultural shift towards the removal of factual distinctions, especially in terms of fundamental aspects of human nature.  The current out working of such a shift is most prominent in the evolving practice that no one has the right to tell anyone else that they are, or might be, wrong, about something.

For example, if I were to tell you that I am 77 inch tall African woman, you should wonder whether or not I am joking, or just off my rocker.  No one should chastise you for letting me know that I am just a 69 inch tall Dutch boy.  However, current societal shifts are teaching young people to withhold any disputation of factual distinctions in favor of a view that refuses to take a stand.  This is bad for everyone, including the deluded.
