We have become used to accusations of “fake news” and claims of “alternative facts”, to cyber manipulation, the stubborn denial of demonstrable evidence, and to calculated obfuscation.

This is the beginning of a conversation about what it means for us and our leaders to be Anshe Emet – People of Truth.
