Counter lies with emotions, not facts.
Figuring out how to counter falsehoods is going to mean assessing how lies benefit the people telling them. Do the things they believe without evidence make them feel safe? Do they make them feel moral? Do these beliefs contribute to a sense of being superior and unassailable? At the one-on-one level, figuring that out is going to help you more than issuing a verbal correction. Writer Alexandra Erin recommends focusing on feelings—not just any feelings, of course, since in our current climate, any grief or anger that's not wearing a Make America Great Again hat is liable to garner hostility, ridicule, and a “snowflake” accusation—but specifically the feeling of safety. Olga Khazan, writing in the Atlantic, suggests reinforcing shared values.

If someone says that the Muslim ban is OK because all terrorists are Muslim, it might be more worth it to ask about his or her fear of terrorism than to rail against the falsehood about terrorists. That can yield a more useful conversation. What’s really going to make them safer? How much safety is really possible, and what are we willing to trade for it? We should probably all practice saying, “There’s no evidence for that, but the important thing is … ” and “Well, I disagree, but let’s say you’re right. What about … ” without choking.

Rembrandt van Rijn (Leiden 1606-Amsterdam 1669) - Self-Portrait in a Flat Cap
Here he is in 1642, at the age of 36. As with many of Rembrandt's paintings, the one we see obscures earlier, unfinished works. This panel, for instance, holds two previous self-portraits: one from a decade before and the other from perhaps the late 1630s. The hat he's wearing in this painting appears in some of the other self-portraits I've covered, most notably 24/100, where it sports a snazzy gold chain. Rembrandt's opted for a more austere, self-confident presentation here. But that earring tho.

Krana Fat – Schick Toikka
Krana Fat is a peculiar display typeface inspired by the lettering of Finnish graphic designer and illustrator Erkki Toukolehto. Where typical digital type is uniform and systematic, Krana Fat echoes the unpredictable and atypical movements of Toukolehto’s wide, flat brush. But this is an homage, not an imitation: While the forms have a soft contour, there are no faux bristles; nor is there an attempt to mimic handmade strokes. Instead, Krana Fat’s identity is somewhere between typography and lettering. It alternately evokes the shape and character of vernacular signage, hobbyist templates, and those institutional alphabets constructed by teams of engineers.
