Holding One's Tongue

Original title: Morderse la lengua
Synopsis:

Political correctness and post-truth.

In our globalized “information society”, the consequent emergence of disinformation is the product of two phenomena symptomatic of our times: political correctness and post-truth, contemporary manifestations of stupidity and the breakdown of rationality. Both permeate and pervert the discourse of politicians, the media and social networks, affecting personal and professional relationships and even research, creation and artistic expressions.

Should we hold our tongue and accept matters? A better alternative would be to learn how these new fundamentalisms work to protect ourselves from being manipulating by them.
