Does anybody know TRUTH…?

Truth-is-so-obscured-nowadaysIt seems we’ve enter a ‘post-truth era’.  Where everything is being politically maneuver, motivated to confuse and demoralize. We’ve become desensitized by lies. Everything is being twisted where truth is not accepted let alone tolerated. Everything is being skewed in such a fashion that no one can tell the truth from the lies. I can’t help to reiterated the sage truth of George Orwell‘s words: “The further a society drifts from the TRUTH, the more it will hate those who speak it.”

Post-truth politics (also called post-factual politics) is a political culture in which debate is framed largely by appeals to emotion disconnected from the details of policy, and by the repeated assertion of talking points to which factual rebuttals are ignored. Post-truth differs from traditional contesting and falsifying of truth by rendering it of “secondary” importance. While this has been described as a contemporary problem, there is a possibility that it has long been a part of political life, but was less notable before the advent of the Internet. In the novel Nineteen Eighty-FourGeorge Orwell cast a world in which the state changes historic records daily to fit its propaganda goals of the day.

Political commentators have identified post-truth politics as ascendant in American, Australian, British, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Russian and Turkish politics, as well as in other areas of debate, driven by a combination of the 24-hour news cyclefalse balance in news reporting, and the increasing ubiquity of social media.[1][2][3][4][5][6] In 2016, “post-truth” was chosen as the Oxford Dictionaries’ Word of the Year,[7] due to its prevalence in the context of that year’s Brexit referendum and media coverage of the U.S. presidential election.[8][9] (Space limits me to extend this informative information further, I encourage you to see its entirety: [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-truth_politics ] and each word marked in aquablue is also an extension of these thoughts.)
