The Oxford dictionary picked Post-Truth as the word of the year in 2016. Though the word itself was coined in 1992, its hype has reached its peak in 2016. The unbelievable and truthfully scary events that occurred this year perhaps have been the catalyst on capturing the attention of people on this word. Post-truth can be defined as a situation where someone lets emotions or personal beliefs triumph over actual evidence or hard facts. The post-truth age we live in has not just come to be. It has been decades or even centuries in the making with several factors contributing to its form. This situation has always been there, like an unspoken rule in ones household, never outright acknowledged but strongly present. Every person has their own perspective and interpretation of truth. While someones perception might be the right fit for them, it is not necessarily true for everyone else. It is important to remember that we are a part of the larger set and our own version of truth might not hold good for everyone. Today though, with the globalisation and the prowess of the internet, the rest of the world has never been more accessible and smaller. People from all across the globe realise that something that happens in the United States could affect them in more ways than they could realise. We have to learn to accept that there are more opinions than one and the judgments we make, and the statements we chose to believe might not automatically be the best. In fact, I believe that there is no such thing as the best version of the truth. All of us perceive the same information in different ways and take away different things. That in itself is not wrong. But we should be ready to accept and deal with the reality that the truth we believe might just be faulty. Only then maybe we can try and reach a consensus and successfully manage to exorcise the ghost of the truth that haunts all of us. It may not be possible to find a solution to fill the gaps that the structure of today's politics causes. But it is nevertheless imperative to have an open and porous dialogue where everyones views and beliefs are given unbiased priority and thought.
