MASK reading

 

Have been reading

Empire of illusion : the end of literacy and the triumph of spectacle

Chris Hedges (2009)

The culture of narcissism

Lasch (2017/1979)

Evan Davis (2017) Post truth: why we have reached peak bullshit and what we can do about it, Little Brown: New York

 

All the above locate pubic relations and professional communication as part of the problem; all have deep, human suggestions for mitigating damage. Interesting to connect the dots from Boorstin (1961) to Davis (2017).
