Media Demagogues have Created a Monster: Can We Tame The Lizard Brain to Save Democracy?
We’re living in an era where the public discourse is overrun by propaganda, inflammatory misinformation, and conspiracy theories.
Armed with a deeper understanding of how demagogues and propagandists use media to warp hearts and poison minds we can become more effective at countering their tactics through conversations that foster critical thought and that spark self-reflection and re-engage with higher moral reasoning.
They have worked to make politics intensely personal in a way that divides us; we will help you make it personal in a way that can re-connect us.
Though there is no magic wand to wave or magic words that can cram the genie back in the bottle and instantly reverse the madness that’s been unleashed, we are much better prepared to defend democracy when we’re armed with a deeper understanding of how propagandists and demagogues use mass media to manipulate minds and warp hearts in their pursuit of raw unchecked power.
Join us for a online training on Sunday, June 30th from 2-3:30 to learn communication strategies, tools, and insights that make you more effective at having conversations that counter misinformation, advance Progressive American values, and that puncture propaganda to create a mind space where people can hear themselves think.
