BRManifesto FAQ: Article 3 - Deliberate Knowledge, Not A By-Product
FAQ re: Principle 3.2
Question: What is the sense of "facts make assertions" in Manifesto principle 3.2?
Terms express business concepts; facts make assertions about these concepts; rules constrain and support these facts.
The intended sense is "indicate things that are taken as true".
