In the book Catcher in the Rye, the lead character calls people phony. This is kind of like the catch phrase fake news. It is also like the persona of many business people who put on a great appearance and have great job titles but who do not practice what they preach and are actually pretending to be someone they are not. In order to conquer this type of phony behavior, one needs to uncover the truth, confront the truth and learn to address the truth through the correct channels. This act will give people a sense of empowerment.
