**Axiom** are self evidently true and don't to be demonstrated. Is that correct? A great deal that was considered axiomatic in past Centuries later turned out to be false.

*"Axioms are not self-evident truths in any sort of rational system, they are unprovable assumptions whose truth or falsehood should always be mentally prefaced with an implicit ``If we assume that...."* ^{[1]}

Liberals need to question what we are told are axioms because everything liberals believe should ideally be rooted in facts and science.
