BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—May 2018—Yes, there is now a Universal Truth Finder and it’s available to everyone. In fact, you have access to the Universal Truth Finder right now, and you can use it whenever you choose.
A technologically linked world is no longer a “Dick Tracey telephone watch” science fiction. It is now our smart phone and internet reality. The dark side of speed-of-light communication in a social media-linked world is that it allows for the rampant spread of unverified rumors, false claims, and deliberate lies.
Separating fiction from non- has become a challenge, especially on social media, but also in anything churned out by the political establishment(s). It has long been known that politicians often skirt, spin, and/or skewer the facts. But never before has there been a United States President so nakedly “untethered to the truth,” as James Comey has succinctly described Donald Trump.
