Pro TruthHow can we turn back the tide of post truth politics fake news and misinformation that is damaging our democracy? First by empowering citizens to recognize and resist political lies and deceptions Using cutting edge neuroscience research we show you the tricks post truth politicians use to exploit our mental blindspots and cognitive biases We then share with you strategies to protect yourself What do you get when you bring a journalist and a behavioural scientist together who both deeply care about the truth in politics? This book Gleb Tsipursky and Tim Ward's Pro Truth A Practical Plan for Putting Truth Back Into Politics 2019 should be on the shelf or device of anyone who cares about the future of truth seeking behaviour Published by Changemakers Books it's a clear and incisive book about weighty matters that is somehow so light and refreshing to read that you won't be able to put it down Above all it's of great help to members of the community who wonder how they can impact politics and public conversations for the better The book well and truly answers the key and urgent uestion that sits at its heart when standards for truth seeking behaviour are slipping daily in contemporary democracies how do average citizens restore them? Tsipursky and Ward offer a range of different forms of advice and active positive solutions informed by both research and experience Among them are managing our own cognitive errors engaging in positive conversations listening rather than lecturing leaving our political comfort zones collaborating with others and making simple commitments such as the Pro Truth PledgeThe authors point to ways that we can manage our own biases and mental errors We're all in danger of believing these mistakes and fast judgements most of all when we go with our gut It's made clear in the book that a hard effort to adopt a better process for thinking has a better overall outcome it allows us to make better decisions engage with people in truthful rather than deceptive ways and filter out the mass of false information in the media and social media that preys on fast thinking and cognitive distortionsOne of the great achievements of the book is to show how an effort to improve our conversations our thinking and our understanding of others can lead to these better and truthful outcomes While some in society try to convince us otherwise critical thinking and positive engagement can take us further than negativity judgement and manipulation The Pro Truth Pledge is the showpiece of this book an evidence based tool that has been shown to work in politics in the United States to encourage truth seeking behaviour It takes only minutes to sign up to the Pro Truth Pledge and join the hundreds of institutions and individuals who have taken it The reward of pledging is a renewed and publicly visible commitment to honouring encouraging and sharing the truth It's this book that convinced me to support and volunteer for the Pro Truth Pledge in Australia and I think you should follow me read this book and sign up to the Pro Truth Pledge throughout the book is the reasonable concern that democracy will slip into an authoritarianism that flourishes on lies While the example of Donald Trump's election of 2016 and Brexit are the key political stories in this book if a reader who leans to the conservative side of politics is not convinced about these stories of misinformation in decision making and is concerned about partisanship they would need to read the book closely to see there's no simple liberal bias here Republicans like John McCain come in for praise for their ethical awareness that the outcomes of the system are bigger than any one individual's capacity to get away with lies There is one thing that is satisfying than 'winning' as McCain puts it and that's supporting a society that does better for everyone rather than satisfies the few The brilliance and society building power of Pro Truth A Practical Plan for Putting Truth Back Into Politics is that no matter your politics if you commit to reading it from cover to cover you will likely come away believing that McCain's maxim is true
