Skepsis Movement

Within the movement we organize such online and offline activities as youth exchanges and training courses, local workshops and run a Facebook page. At this page you can find many different, interesting and fun information and data about Critical Thinking.

This past year we have grown a lot. From a small yet ambitious movement that boosted February 2018 to a thousand supporters all over the world. Within the movement there were organized 10 Erasmus+ projects and planned more, a lot of workshops and local events regarding the topic for more than 250 people. At every project Logos organizes there is a session about Critical Thinking. Also we have a coordinator, working for the movement.

And countless amount of people we influenced so far and will in the future. Switch on your brain!

WHY FACT-CHECK SOMETIMES DOESN’T WORK

For example, in the first 200 days in office, Donald Trump made around 500 false statements.
From time to time he continuous to do so. 

But what make people still to believe him? 

An answer is pretty simple: we do not like to accept the evidence that contradicts our beliefs. It is hard for us to accept the fact that WE WERE WRONG. 

Thus, we would rather deny the truth and reject fact-check.

WHO ARE THE TROLLS?

An Internet troll is a member of an online social community who deliberately tries to offend or generally cause trouble within the community by posting certain comments, photos, videos, GIFs or some other form of online content.

WHY ARE THEY HARMFUL?

The biggest dangers concerning them - spreading false facts, creating online wars, cyber-bullying, messing up with everyones psychology, bad influence, creating bad impressions and so on. 

HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM?

Controlling them can be difficult when there are a lot of community members, but the most common ways to get rid of them include either banning/blocking individual user accounts (and sometimes IP addresses altogether), reporting them to authorities, or closing off comment sections entirely from a blog post, video page or topic thread.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT KIND TROLLS

- The Insult Troll
- The Persistent Debate Troll
- The Grammar and Spellcheck Troll
- The One Word Only Troll
- The Exaggeration Troll
- The Off Topic Troll
- The Greedy Spammer Troll
- The Show-Off, Know-it-All Or Blabbermouth Troll
