Countering the War on Facts

Throughout its history, the “New Right” has rewritten history and science to support its policies on issues ranging from separation of church and state to climate change. The result of 40+ years of this is a nation not only polarized by differences in opinions, but unable to agree on basic facts. In this sesssion, we will dissect five specific, widely believed but nonfactual myths including: 1) where they came from and how they were disseminated; 2) the underlying and sometimes not-so-obvious purposes they serve; and 3) how we can better counter these myths.
