This is what most American schools do not teach: how to analyze, evaluate, recognize logical fallacies, and so on. This site is full of valuable information. It is a generous gift to us from Dr Lau. Please use it to catch up on those skills that you should have mastered long ago. and please share it with your friends and families… children in school will benefit.
Learning or brushing up on these skills will help you navigate the world we describe on TheShameCampaign. The fiction-based media is fraught with invitations to fear, grief, resentment and retaliation. We need to be able to to separate the real from the false and be able to discern the true intention behind fake news events. We need to be able to help ourselves and each other steer clear of the nefarious agenda – and from the hype. Otherwise, the media is inviting us to think of ourselves as less than we truly are – even to self-destruct.
