The Post-Fact Era
Nathan Bomey
Prometheus, 2018




Donald Trump was inevitable. The Post-Fact Era will explain how society’s increasingly tenuous commitment to the truth laid the groundwork for someone like Trump to rise to power. Indeed, the author argues, there’s a little bit of Donald Trump in all of us — a willingness to skew reality in spite of the facts. On Facebook, we present images of our lives that ignore reality and, in fact, intentionally mislead our friends and family. We consume fake news stories online and carelessly circulate false rumors. In politics, we vote for leaders who leverage political narratives that favor ideology over science. And in our schools, we have fostered a diminishing connection between performance and assessment. Donald Trump did not usher the post-fact era into being. He was simply a product of it.
