The American Democracy Project’s Recommended TED Talk of the Month

“The more we read and watch online, the harder it becomes to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s fake. It’s as if we know more but understand less, says philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch. In this talk, he dares us to take active steps to burst our filter bubbles and participate in the common reality that actually underpins everything.”

As the description of this talk summarizes, the topic is battling lies and confusing information with “daring to know”. In times where all may not be what it seems, these principles are a crucial tool.
