Patrick  Burow - Generation Fake


Unsparingly honest! A judge stands up to fake news.

In over twenty years as judge Patrick Burow has had to listen to thousands and thousands of falsehoods – which is how he has involuntarily become an expert on lying. In the courtroom there has been a substantial increase in lying, while outside the court, falsehoods and fabrications have become a dominant aspect of life. Whether in personal relationships, career, the media, politics, everyday life, the Internet, or advertising – unrestrained lying is rampant.

This change in values can be easily observed over the last 25 years. We have long been living in a post-factual society, one in which truth and honesty are threatened with extinction. Of course, people say they are not actually lying, but merely using "alternative facts". What will society become when there is a generation of people who no longer distinguish between truth and untruth? Perhaps they will no longer even understand that there is a difference. Parallel to this develop-ment, however, is a growing countercurrent: honesty as a societal value.

This book will help us see through lies and uncover the truth. A powerful appeal for more honesty.
