Our Methods for Fighting Disinformation

Primary tabs

Let's Get Specific

The Ideas
Upon close scrutiny, false narratives often unravel completely. To create a shared reality, we need to focus on specific ideas and evidence - together.
And, we need to consider these ideas, free of propaganda and rhetoric...

The Details laid out

The Map
The argument map document type was designed to help create a shared reality between people who disagree. By including the ideas and evidence from all sides of an issue in one place, everyone can truly understand "the other side" of an issue, even if they don't agree with it...

Conclusive Conversations

The Sources
We invite original sources from both sides of an issue to participate as first class citizens. That way, you can know that both sides of an issue are being represented in their most complete and persuasive form.
Examples of why this is game-changing:

Crowdsourcing the Truth

The Ratings
Large communities of specialists are the hardest groups to confuse or to corrupt, and they hold the key the kind of truth we need right now.
Examples of why this is game-changing:

Crowdfunding the Truth

The Campaigns
Our current information ecosystem hasn't allowed the public to ask pointed questions and get answers.
Changing that will make all the difference...

Inserted Truth

The Distribution
Finally, we insert the information we gather into the web pages where disinformation lives.
Disinformation agents and their false narratives will no longer be able to run or hide...

The Kind of Truth We Need Right Now

It's critical that we all upgrade our understanding of what the word "fact" means. In the same way that whether you "own" something or not depends on whether the courts will give it back to you if someone takes it from you, the label "fact" points to the intelligence of the crowd and what is considered certainly true by the consensus of the most-expert community among us on the topic.
Take, for example, the "fact" that once upon a time, Newtonian physics was believed to be the be-all-end-all of how the physical world behaved. It was called a fact - it was labeled a fact. When new information was brought into the community, they made a transformation about their consensus. It's that consensus which determines what is a fact and what isn't.
This understanding of what a fact is, and what truth is, is needed in order to see the kind of evidence which we need right now as a society to bring us together. We need to understand the bell-curve of consensus in the most informed community among us on a topic, where there are competing narratives to resolve.

That's what Shared Reality Solutions is here to do.
