“Post-Truth” – Oxford Dictionaries selected this as their Word of the Year. Something is post-truth if it is “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emption and personal belief.” Hence personal preferences, opinions, and feelings are more important than objective, common-sense truth.
Look up post-modernism and post-truth for an interesting study. The philosophical question is, is there any ultimate, objective moral truth?
The cross is a scarecrow
where crows hover and perch
on tomato-stake arms and straw hat
to gawp and caw at button eyes,
dripping dewy tears
above ripening melons.
