Garry Kasparov: I lived in the post-truth Soviet world and I hear its echoes in Trump’s America

There cannot be a red state reality and a blue state reality any more than there should be one world map inside of Russia and a different one outside, writes Garry Kasparov.

I have lived through several world-changing upheavals. I’m a post-Soviet citizen; the country of my birth ceased to exist in 1991. We enjoyed less than a decade of tenuous freedom in Russia before Vladimir Putin launched its post-democratic phase. My ongoing attempts to fight that tragedy led to my exile in the United States. Now my new home finds itself locked in its own perilous battle — a battle to avoid becoming the latest member of the post-truth world.
