Premise 1. John is human ( A = C )
Premise 2. Jane is human ( B = C )
By the transitive property: John is Jane (A = B)
You can now go and blame Aristotle for identity politics...
If you want to see and understand the Truth of things, then 'you' have to look at and speak truth. Distorting truth will never help you to see any thing true.
Not just the words you say can effect the 'truth of things' so to can just a letter.
"John is human" is not truth. "John is a
human" is speaking more truth.
Now, if "john is a
human", and, "jane is a
, then they obviously are not necessarily the exact same thing.
Missing the words 'also
' and 'a
' obviously affects the actual truth of things
If A is a
thing C, and so A is just ONE of C. And, B is a
thing, ALSO, and so B is just ANOTHER ONE of C.
Then, instead of the conclusion A is B, which is obviously false, the truth is seen. A is obviously not (necessarily) B.
A and B are both just each an individual one of the group C.
If A is C, then nothing else could be C. A is not C. A is just a part of the group C.
Saying/writing the actual truth, instead of trying to distort things to suit one's own previously held distorted beliefs, allows the actual Truth of things to come to light and be revealed.
Saying "john (or jane) is a
human" is the truth, but it is also just a part of thee Truth. When the whole truth, and nothing but the truth is spoken, then thee actual and real Truth of things is very easily seen, and understood.
