Liar paradox - If this sentence were true, then what it says would be the truth, implying that it is false which is a contradiction, so if it were false then it is false that this sentence is false, hence it is true which is also a contradiction. by JasonCarswell in Philosophy

Not really.

Try this then. Someone wakes up with a terrible hangover from a rough night. Another person make a sarcastic comment...

  • "Hey beauty queen."

  • "You look a million bucks."

  • "Saving the world one shot at a time."

All of these examples are clearly not meant to be true.

Sarcasm, too good to be true.

I don't think that's true, though you'd think so the way FANG etc are acting with their rampant censorship like their futures depended upon it.

It's not worded well.

We've been struggling with trying to discuss coming up with good policy that is not about censoring so much as how to protect, prevent, and prepare for the worst, and the future is infinitely full of hypothetical possible threats.

So thus far the best thing we can come up with is to hope people are more accurate and more specific about their phrases not to unnecessarily attract negative attention, and be vigilant, prepared, and brace for the worst, forever.
