Fear is Trumping Reason: Will the Lizard Brain Rule in 2016? Deprogramming America from the Fox “News” Fear Factor

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There's a lizard lurking inside each one of our brains. When it dominates, guns fly off the shelves after the latest mass shooting, Trump’s appeals to xenophobia and racism are rewarded with a spike in the polls, and a majority of Americans accept the cruelty of refusing desperate refugees as “common sense.” The co-directors of the HearYourselfThink Project bring our years of grassroots organizing and advocacy experience to this challenge of reclaiming America’s brain from the grip of right-wing media. Participants in this workshop will learn how to deprogram people who have been trapped inside the "Fox Bubble" and take away effective strategies to diffuse and diminish the influence of right-wing media over our politics and culture
