This post is well worth your time and consideration. Just a tiny excerpt:
A world without facts and without truth is one in which the America that was cannot exist.
America had prospered because of a firm belief in a discoverable and exploitable reality. That was the country that could build skyscrapers and fleets in a year. Post-Truth America has little interest in big buildings because it’s too busy enacting a psychodrama in which the earth is about to be destroyed.
It seems we now live in a land run by pathological liars in every sphere of influence. Truth is so tortured on a daily basis, in support of so many agendas, one hardly knows where to look for it anymore. But it should not be surprising that truth is hard to find in an America that has rejected the Truth:
They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Romans 1:25
