#DefeatFakeNews

Fabricating fake news is easy

Con artists use fake news to manipulate people's minds. It is far easier for the mind to embrace fake news disguised as truth than it is to welcome inconvenient truths. Fake patriots stand in the way of truth.

  • Without truth, there is no trust
    • Without trust, there is no good government

      Free speech without truth is corruption. Democracy based on fake news is the new tyranny.


      Seeking truth is a struggle

      Free speech with truth is liberation. Freedom and truth go hand-in-hand for transparent accountability.

      Free-thinkers are the true patriots. They liberate people from the tyranny of fake news. True patriots put people's needs, equity and planetary health ahead of political ideology, identity and blind loyalty.  
        We need new words to frame questions about how to address what’s true and false in the post-truth era.


        Neo-terrorists

        Neo-terrorists are fundamentalists (I'm absolutely right and you're dead wrong) who put their political ideology, identity and blind loyalty ahead of people's needs, equity and planetary health."  Neo-terrorists use fake news to divide and conquer the silent majority.


        Neo-terrorism

        Neo-terrorism is a propaganda war of words without weapons nor integrity. It is a sports game without any rules and referees. Foul plays are the norm. Neo-terrorism wins when opinions, emotions and beliefs triumph over facts, evidence and rationality. In short, fake news trumps truth.

        Neo-terrorism results in never-ending conflicts that are detrimental to our well-being, equity and planetary health. This pathological divisiveness disables our creativity to address the complex problems of the 21st century. Domestic neo-terrorism is the greatest threat to democracy.


        Make leaders accountable

        How can we, the people, assure that our political leaders:

        • Make public policies transparently accountable to the needs of people?
        • Assure that all people have fair opportunities to achieve their highest levels of health, well-being and human flourishing?
        • Advocate for planetary health: "One People, One Planet?


        Build story movements

        Unite journalists and the people to create stories by asking all politicians and leaders to questions, such as:

        • Who do you regard as neo-terrorist, and explain why?
        • How will you #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain?
        • What are your strategies for defeating neo-terrorism?

        And share your own story in response to this statement.

        • Ask not how your country can be true to you.
        • Ask how you can be true to your country.


        Spread the word

        Use these new word definitions and hashtags in discussions, debates, and articles.
        • #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain
        • #EndNeoTerrorism
        • #DefeatNeoTerrorists
