In this era, people of reason and critical thinking are dismayed to see that truth itself is under siege by those who seek to manipulate the public opinion for a political partisan agenda, by distorting and even denying the actual facts of life as it is known. In Post-Truth, author Lee McIntyre examines how this came to be, and what to do about it, in a non-partisan way. His measured tone is accurate and even-handed, and gives us hope that reason can once again prevail. From science deniers to political hacks saying that their opinion matters more than the truth, there is a wedge of people twisting the landscape into a distorted view of what is actual and what is their fantasy. Our republic cannot withstand this assault, and a continued reliance on what is wishful thinking over what is true will plunge us into authoritarian anarchy. If you do not want our world to resemble the one depicted in The Hunger Games, read this book and pass it on to others.
