It’s about nothing more than the truth! At times, when fake-news and alternative-facts are in competition with what is considered to be reality and when they turn to become an instrument of power, at times when the impact of news is knowingly used – it’s utterly time to deal with the term “truth” and it’s moral and social implications. Aldous Huxley, did exactly that in his famous novel “Brave New World”, Foucault meticulously dealt with discourses and prevailing truths based on power-structures in “Discipline And Punish: The Birth Of The Prison”, while Orwell illustrated in an impressive way in “1984”, how truth can be shaped, formed and set by the ones in power.
“‘La verita’ is one of TALCO´s most recurrent themes. In the case, the concept of “truth” and it´s manipulation is transformed in weapons that “influencers” and shameless journalists use to achieve notoriety.” is how singer Dema summarizes the track.
