Information cannot be verified
In Soviet times, information about the attitude to what was happening was expressed, among other things, in the format of self-publishing — stories, novels, poems were typed manually on a typewriter. Such books were wrapped in paper covers with the titles of classical works — such a disguise so that you could read it in the subway and put on a shelf. Today we have a lot of information around us. Lots of disguises, tricks and manipulations. What sources can be trusted today in post-truth conditions?
