Word of the Year: Post Truth


Post-truth politics (also called post-factual politics) is a political culture in which debate is framed largely by appeals to emotion disconnected from the details of policy, and by the repeated assertion of talking points to which factual rebuttals are ignored.

Oxford’s 2016 Word of the Year and why I stopped discussing anything with people and why my the generation is the way it is and why the world is the way it is.

At the end of the day after all the malarkey and noise, the very real suffering that exists in this world slaps me in the face and reminds me of my utter and irrevocable weakness and fragility. My thoughts race about trying to solve it all, but how can I solve something I can’t fully comprehend? How can I solve something I am too fearful to face? After my brain exhaust itself, I run to Him to take solace and refuge. I let Him be God and let me be me. (And that’s how I sleep at night.)
