One response to “The post-truth presidency”

  1. Greg Gerritt

    Another really good essay in this series. My background is in anthropology and I point out to my political science friends that much of American politics reminds me of the politics in other primate species. They tend ot dismiss this idea, but this essay lends more credence to my thoughts .

    I also think that neigther the Democrats nor the Republicans have spoken the truth about the economy for so long that it is almost impossible to have a rational discussion about the economy. In which case, as long as people are hurting, the demagogue wins.
