It’s getting harder and harder to understand what is real and what is fake these days. Politicians. Foreign and domestic propaganda. Real and fake news media. Conspiracy cults. Social media. They can often bring us bad-information. Dys-information. These sources of dys-information are wrecking our ability to know and to understand what is really happening and harming our lives. They are making it difficult for us to make the best choices for our lives. They are endangering our future. MTMA will help stop the spread of dys-information.

 

Dys-information, or bad information is the information that we get that makes our lives worse-off. How bad the information is depends on exactly what it is about. It can be mildly annoying to deadly wrong. For instance, if you’re like me, you’ve had a car mechanic at a quick lube tell you that he replaced your windshield wiper fluid, when he didn’t. That might not be devastating dys-information, but certainly annoying if there’s something you need to watch that out. It could be worse.

 

Hopefully you aren’t one to have experienced a car mechanic saying he completed your oil change only to find he didn’t complete it because he forgot to screw the top on to the oil reservoir, and you broke down on the freeway (this happened to one of us!). Such dys-information might not lead to majorly bad consequences, if you don’t pay attention, it could bring you into a deadly situation.

 

Some even share dys-information in that can harm groups of people. This dys-information could have immediate consequences like the above examples. Sometimes the dys-information could have long-term potential consequences. Like the unfounded claims that vaccines are a conspiracy to implant microchips inside our body to control or track people and other disprovable conspiracy beliefs.
 

We can better detect dys-information that comes at us. We can better protect ourselves, our families, and our nation. It is up to each of us, individually, to be aware of the harm that dys-information brings to us. 

 

Make Truth Matter Again exists to combat dys-information. 

 

We are part of a growing movement of groups and organizations that are taking aim at dys-information on all scales. Together, with honest people like you, we are pushing for a world where we are less hurt by dishonesty and deceit. We’re working to be better prepared to create a future that has freedoms and liberties that make our country, and the world, a great place. 

 

But combating dys-information is not easy without everyone’s participation. We need your help. 

 

Harmful information can spread contagiously, exponentially, like a virus. And it can be much more harmful than a flu virus. It can mess up more than just your health. It can mess up your lives in general. Fortunately, just as you can take steps to prevent biological viruses from harming you, you can help to prevent dys-information from spreading and harming. Here’s how:

 

  • We can prevent ourselves from being infected. We can improve our understanding of the tricks of dys-information and better protect ourselves from what it might do to us. 

  • We can help others to protect others from being infected. By sharing what we know, and encouraging them to improve their own “information hygiene”’, they may be better able to ward off the infectious dangers it might cause. 

 

Make Truth Matter Again is focusing on improving our collective awareness of dys-information and the damages it can bring to ourselves individually, and to society. Without your effort and support, dys-information may continue to spread with dangerous consequences. Here is what you can do: 

 

  • Learn about the different types of dys-info that attack us in various forms, and of the potential dangers. 

  • Commit to honesty and to not spreading dys-info yourself.

  • Speak up about dys-information when you see it, and work to effectively share with others what you have learned. 

  • Join the growing communities that are dedicated to improving honesty and combating dys-information. 

  • Reach beyond your networks and sponsor honest advertising - advertisements that are created, specifically gauged to improve everyone’s defenses against dys-info. 

  • Support MTMA's efforts in fighting dys-information 


It is up to us to create a future that is more free, more safe from the harms that might come our way.

It is up to us to Make Truth Matter Again!

Observe. Understand

Respond Effectively

"Life is Hard." We can make life easier by following three guidelines. What are they?

Observe. Understand.  Respond Effectively. OURE.
The simple instructions can be used everywhere, by everyone. When more use these credos do it, it makes life better. 

Improve our lives through better understanding

We are safer when we understand reality

than when we do not

Everything we learn has the potential to help us as individuals and our communities. The deep knowledge we have within helps to survive the challenges of the world around us when it reflects what is going on in the world around us.  From simpler things, like how to balance our budget, or how to bake cookies, to harder things, like how to raise a family and build our career: if we don't understand it well enough, we're less likely to succeed. 

Encourage all of us to push through the challenges

Being ignorant of something is easier than understanding it. 

Easier does not mean better.

We find that the most rewarding of tasks have been when we have put our hearts, our minds, our souls into them. From raising a family to creating a business from scratch. From studying every night, while working all night, to placing ourselves in danger to protect our communities and our country. Everything worthwhile is not easy.

Realize that we understand with our both hearts and our minds

What we know in our hearts, and what we know in our minds, are not always the same.

Our instincts and emotions are powerful forces that can guide us to greatness, or into sadness. So too, can our thoughts lead us into the best of times, or into the worst of times. When both our emotions, and our thoughts have an improved understanding, we can more easily find ourselves in better times.

To help all of us to see the world more clearly in order to protect our future

When we search to improve our understanding, the world becomes clearer, and easier to work with. 

Like eyes blurred by rain, sweat, or tears, when we do not correctly understand the world, we will see things somewhat wrong. When we cannot see correctly, what are we to do? 

Push our institutions to sharing truth

If the government, corporations, or other organizations give us untruths, all of us lose.

If we are told an untruth often enough, even if we know it to be false, we begin to believe it. Common sense is not always common, and scientific 'evidence' can be used to mislead.  We must hold the organizations that guide our lives accountable in their accurate reporting of the truth. If we do not, then we can be led to believe things that put our individual selves in danger, our country in peril, and our world in harm's way. 

Emphasize the importance of immediacy

If not now, when?

Procrastination. We all do it. It is easier to think about doing something to improve our lives than to go out and to take action and do it. When we delay doing what we know to be important, we limit our potential to improve the conditions for ourselves and our family. 

Encourage everyone to escape the echo-chambers we are in

We like to be told that we are right. We do not like to be told that we are wrong, even if we are. Lets change that.

At a minimum, all of us want a good, safe, and fulfilling life. Very few of us want to harm other people to get to such a life. But it is easier to think of those who we disagree with as our pure enemies. We all likely wish to ensure the rights asserted within our constitution: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  We do not always agree on the way to ensure those rights will last forever. If we attack each other in such pursuits we will only make it easier to be taken over by our true enemies: those who do not believe that individuals should have the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Lay the foundation for a better tomorrow

With each piece of accurate understanding of reality that find we can build something better.

Like a tool in a toolkit, each element of reality that we learn can be used to build something. Our hands can swing a well-made hammer into a nail to can bring pieces of wood together. When we've done this enough, we can build a house. If we consider our understanding as a tool to make our lives better, we will learn to use this tool, and find more of them.
