Discerning Propaganda: Knowing What Is True
In this workshop people will learn some critical thinking skills, so that they can better recognise
propaganda, and also learn to suspend judgement about ‘truth’ so that they aren’t so emotionally
invested in something being true that they become dogmatic.
We will go through:
Recognising how all media shapes views (eg editorial tactics, sensationalism etc)
Confirmation bias as the key to holding on to dogma
How we know what we know, and how do we know if it’s Neohumanist?
The value of suspending judgement
