I am currently
working on three articles that will be expanded into short books that describe the thinking behind the projects that are part
of Bring Truth to Fear. A draft of the first, Fear-Based Thinking, has been posted to this site. I am currently
working on “Reaching Out to the Other Side” and hope to have a rough draft posted in the near future. I
expect to have the third article, “What is Truth” completed in the next month. I am outlining and organizing
notes for the books and for developing apps as I work on these projects.
Finding co-authors to assist in
writing these books would free time for building the organization and app development. We are also putting together
a planning committee to organize and prioritize the work of Bring Truth to Fear and looking for assistance in developing a
social media presence. If you know of anyone who has the skills, time, and inclination to fill any of these roles, ask
them to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be teaching a workshop on Fear-Based Thinking on September
26 and on “What is Truth” on November 7 at The Center for Teaching Excellence at Lansing Community College.
I hope to videotape the lecture components of this training and will post them to this site when available.
Truth to Fear is a grass root effort. Your ideas, feedback, and suggestions are much appreciated. I am confident
we can turn our political systems in a positive direction when we bring our hearts and minds together to recognize and confront
fear-based and misleading information in politics and the media and work together find common ground between factions and
interest groups that have been pulled apart by the political process.
