Isn't it nice to know we've went from "post-modernism" to "post-truthism"?
After much discussion, debate, and research, the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2016 is post-truth – an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’. https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/word-of-the-year/word-of-the-year-2016
Sure, this might talk about a "develpment" in politicks but it's way more than that: it has become cultural. I've never heard this phrase "post truth" until a few minutes ago but this says so much about the zeitgeist.
