Author of the acclaimed The Truth Agenda and Conspiracies, Andy Thomas takes a sideways look at the continual media focus on ‘fake news’...
...‘post-truth’, Donald Trump, Brexit and so on, and questions some of the assumptions being made about these areas. Was there really ever a pre-‘post-truth’ era, and if news is fake, which news, and who should be the arbiters of truth? Proposed ‘solutions’ seriously risk closing down legitimate alternative enquiry. We live in an era that some ancient cultures believed would be transformational – rather than living in the “dark” times we keep being told they are, could the challenges we are being presented with actually be the very things that help usher in a new and better world? Andy explains how we can deal more positively with the current information overload and make more sense of complex times.
