In this second part of our series on conspiracy theories and other false narratives, we'll look at practical actions we can take and tools we can use to have fruitful discussions with friends and family who have been misled.
There are ways that we can help untangle the snare of a mind-gripping false narrative. They're usually not easy, and they're usually not fast, but they can work in most cases. To help us learn how, Dr. Lee McIntyre, author of How to Talk to a Science Denier, will provide detailed recommendations for countering science denial and other false narratives in one-on-one discussions with friends and family.
This will be an intense, information-packed event; be sure to bring your questions or send them to us in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also want to review the first event in this series, "Why Have False Beliefs and Conspiracy Theories Become So Powerful?" before attending. And be sure to look for the next event in this series, which will discuss actions society can take to defend itself.
Speaker: Lee McIntyre, Boston University; Eric Siegel, Commonwealth Club, Moderator
