The shift against capitalism

I read in the papers that young adult Americans are falling out of love with capitalism and their disaffection extends to language. People trust ‘The Truth’ but not ‘The Evidence or The Facts’. If not a post-truth world, a post-factual one, writes John Authers. Thankfully he concludes that while America no longer appears to like capitalism, unless populist politicians goad them into doing something, life as we’ve known it will continue. Would that Theresa May curb her compulsion to mess with things she shouldn’t. I still can’t decide if the girl’s left or right. Maybe it doesn’t matter anymore, nowadays we’re either in people or out people.
