Alternative Facts – Promoting or Retarding Democracy?

Based on your reading, do you feel Alternative Facts is a legitimate concept–can there be more than one truth? Or, would you argue that an alternative fact cannot exist if a fact is irrefutable? What is the point? Do you feel the use of alternative facts helps to further understanding or can they obscure truth? Are alternative facts used to support or undermine democracy? Do some further research and craft an argument in support of or against the use of alternative facts by our current American administration. Please note, this is not an essay about your personal opinion or political beliefs–please leave these out of your essay and instead rely on logical thinking and factual evidence from credible sources to support your argument.
