Generation Post-Truth

Oxford Dictionaries has named post-truth as the word of the year. They define it as an adjective ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.’ Although, this word is presumably meant as an insult to the conservative right, it is actually a good description of our culture and where it is headed. In fact, I think we should name those born after the year 2000 as the post-truth generation. They will be the first generation that grew up without any concept of truth.
