‘Post-truth’ reaches the homelessness crisis
When is an “alternative fact” a fact? When it’s uttered by powerful people in pivotal public positions. Statements on the housing and homelessness crises made by people such as Leo Varadkar(1), Conor Skehan(2) and Eileen Gleeson(3) in recent days shows us that clearly untrue statements are presumed, by those stating them, to be accepted and swallowed whole by a docile and acquiescing populace.
