What You Don't Know About Post-Truth and Why It Matters
Join Us On This Webinar to Uncover the Surprising Truth about the
Chaotic Processes That Could Undo Us and Discover
How to Stop and Reverse Them
Dr. Dorian Mintzer
Why are so many people so easily misled by mistruths, partial truths, blatant disinformation, false portrayals, slick glosses, obvious reframing, misleading whataboutisms, frauds, scams, and outright lies? Where did this Post-Truth "infodemic" come from, and why now?
Drawing on his studies and experience with strategic thinking, psychology, business and government communications, culture, and education, Donald Officer has watched the reconstructed spread of Post-Truth, drawing some surprising conclusions. Putting his experience as a media observer and researcher to the test, he remains astonished at the extent of the chaos. You may be all too familiar with this paradox, but his discoveries might shock while they also encourage. If we can just survive this first wave....
In this program, we will uncover a few tentative answers to these pressing questions:
- What should I listen for and contribute to this webinar?
- What might I expect to learn or unlearn today?
- What are the main sources of Post-Truth in my world?
- How does Post-Truth affect me, my family, or my community?
- As an elder, what can I do to influence Post-Truth impacts?
Note: This will be a webinar with slides.
