* Though the term was first coined in 1992, after the election of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, the term post-truth gained a lot of traction.

-> ''When people face what nothing in their past has prepared them for they grope for words to name the unknown, even when they can neither define nor understand it...The keyword was the small preposition, "after," generally used in its latinate form "post" as a prefix...to mark out the mental territory of twentiety-century life. The world...became post-industrial, post-imperial, post-modern, post-structuralist, post-Marxist, post-Gutenburg, or whatever.''
