Potential interview topics: bad thinking, keys to good thinking, Islam, climate, Communism, the EU, the UN, anti-Semitism, capitalism, political correctness, cultural relativism, populism, moral relativism, infiltration, national borders, refugee resettlement, lawfare, justice systems, tarsands, oil, natural gas, economy, G5, medicine, cancer, cannabis, healing energy, Google, Youtube, Facebook, brainwashing and unbrainwashing ...


The goal: to turn us all into warriors for good thinking.

Target One: bad thinking in the education system.

Target Two: bad thinking - meaning not fact-centered and/or illogical - on every topic.

Target Three: destructive anti-learning tactics like name-calling instead of fact-checking.

Tools: facts, logic, and fact-based feeling, plus personal strengths like courage and persistence.




Workshop help us engage more successfully with the social, political, civic world. We may be frustrated by the power of the anti-thinking anti-truth mainstream world. We care about many social issues, about human rights and freedoms, about politics. We recognize the increasing blocks, the censorship. All the same, we see some people making a considerable impact, having a considerable audience. We want to achieve more ourselves.


The anti-slavery movement. That was a movement, with many individuals taking part. One person could be very influential, like Harriet Beecher Stowe with her seminal novel, published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin (now denigrated by people who do not even try to understand its enormous impact). But she was just one individual. It was over a century later, 1981, that Mauritania made slavery illegal, the last country in the world to do so. But even now, according to my research, over half a million people are still slaves in Mauritania.

The votes-for-women movement. Again, that was a movement, with many individuals in many countries taking part over a period of more than a century. 1848: a group of people got together in Seneca Falls, USA. 1920: one government after another in the West gave women the vote. 1944: in Quebec, Canada, women gained the right to vote in a provincial general election. 1971: women in Switzerland gained the right to vote in federal elections.

How long will it take for good thinking to be made a core of the education system, and to get good thinking generally valued - which mean that truth will be valued? I don't know.

I know that a movement can be enormously beneficial. Otherwise we're alone, re-inventing the wheel in place after place (how best to intervene in the education system, for instance). Sometimes we can't even find one ally, let alone a community of like-minded people.

I think of myself. In 2006, I was hit by awareness of indoctrination taking place in the school system. I'd been teaching, college and university level, for 23 years. Suddenly there was a sea change in my students. They all insisted: all opinions are equal, who are we to judge, everything is relative. But what could I do? I wrote extensively and posted, reached a considerable audience. I also spoke on the subject. It was a drop in the ocean. Nothing changed.

As for Islam and political correctness, it took years for me to realize the extent of the anti-truth indoctrination and the extent of the penalties for truth-telling. The Truth is No Defense is Elizabeth Sabaditsch-Woolf's aptly titled autobiography, chronicling her more than decade-long struggle with the legal system, all the way up to the Human Rights court of the European Union. As I was becoming aware, I just noticed that some things did not make sense - like, so much Islamic outrage about a cartoon and so much acquiescence to the outrage by millions of people in the West. It took me several years to believe we were facing a major threat.

It took even longer for me to realize that the anti-truth bias didn't just relate to Islam. Climate. Marxism. Capitalism. Israel. Cancer. The European Union. On issue after issue, either we adhere to the well-funded and well-organized mainstream position, or we're likely to face rage and name-calling - even death threats, job threats and legal charges.

We need a movement, a way to connect the dots and to engage together. With the Truth Summit, it's much easier to get awareness, to care, and through the workshops, to engage effectively. The workshop lets like-minded people connect worldwide into a community, share strategies, challenges and successes.


There's a second reason for the workshop. We are in danger. The West is in serious danger.

Plato: If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools. 

The current situation is far more dangerous. There are increasing threats to human rights and freedoms, notably freedom of speech. As for good thinking, for decades students have been indoctrinated to believe all opinions are equal (which can easily be shown to be illogical), that we are not to judge (meaning think and evaluate), and simultaneously that the West is the root of all evil.

Imagine living in 1938 Nazi Germany or in 1938 Hitler-appeasing Great Britain. World War II - the death of millions upon millions - was looming because the social world was not well taken-care-of. You could have love, money, health, vocation. Bombs would soon be falling on London, and then on German cities. 6 million Jews would soon be murdered in death camps. Devastation.

In the UK, Churchill warned people for 10 years. Very few people listened. Chamberlain, the prime minister, kept appeasing Hitler - a very charming man, according to Chamberlain.

Churchill took over as prime minister after Germany began bombing London. His motto: Never give up. And he didn't. It took 6 long hard years to defeat the Nazis.

Until the end of his life, Churchill kept asking himself: was there anything else he could have done, to wake people up, to avert the catastrophe of World War II?

Churchill's question is a core question here: what more can we do to avert the threat posed by the Left and Islam and globalists, by those who are disconnected from truth - like truth about climate, about economics, about human nature and unalienable human rights?

One small thing: we can organize, build a community, starting with workshops where we share strategies and connect with each other to take more effective actions.

The workshops let us move more quickly.


The third reason for the workshop is social and political involvement is necessary for a full life.

The popular vision of a good life is inadequate. There are hundreds of how-to books with 10 hot tips for more love, more money, more health, more personal development and more fun. Eat right!! Exercise right!!! Visualize the ideal partner!! Earn a million dollars!!

That's generally supposed to be enough so we have lives we love living.

Yes, work we find satisfying, loving relationships, and good emotional as well as physical health - all these matter enormously.

But many of us are not satisfied with only a good personal life. Many people do volunteer work. Fabulous. Many people give to causes they care about. Also fabulous.

All this is still not enough. We need, for the sake of our societies as well as ourselves, social and/or political awareness and engagement, on many levels - the local, the national, the worldwide.


Here are images of windows:

Dark windows -
like someone living an unsatisfying life.

Windows with curtains and flowers -
like someone with personal happiness.
window with curtains

But what about what is around the window?

Here's another image of the window,
as the world outside is disintegrating.

The next image would be of the window smashed on the ground, in a heap with other smashed windows. The structure within which the windows exist would be gone.

When the world outside the personal is endangered, our personal worlds are threatened with collapse. No matter how happy we are in our personal life, we will be caught in the larger devastation.

Right now we're faced with an enormous anti-thinking, anti-fact, anti-truth bias, fueled by greed, fear, corruption.

Even if we were living in a time of general social well-being, it would make sense to be involved. There are always important issues. Plus how else ensure that the situation stays good. That brings us back to the quote from Plato: If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools. 

Right now, the situation is urgent.


There is a weekly workshop, with many sub-groups.

The weekly workshop includes:

- favorite strategies from the people interviewed;

- further effective strategies for reaching people;

- actions people have taken the previous week;

- action plans for the coming week;

- possible actions with the people around us,
and with larger systems (schools, notably);

- coping strategies for difficult situations;

- Q & A.

People will be encouraged to connect in sub-groups to work together, for instance if they live close to each other and share the same main interest. It's easier doing things when we are not alone.

That's it, in a nutshell.


A world with:

- good thinking - that is, facts and logic;

- freedom of thought and enquiry and speech;

- inherent human rights,
including liberty until harm,
and the right to flourish.


We come back to the starting point - the challenge we face.

Engaging successfully with the larger world is challenging.
Sometimes we're sure something might work, but we don't know what it might be. Sometimes we speak out and friends stop speaking to us. Sometimes we stay silent to avoid conflict. How could we reach more people, maybe especially those we care about?

The workshop is for people who want to go further in activism. We may want to engage better with the people closest to us - families and friends. We may feel afraid when we speak out - how can we become comfortable reaching out? We may want to work on the public level, the civic - from the local school board, to municipal affairs, to a federal political party. How do we begin? And how do we continue? Are there people around us to connect with?

We know there's a massive amount of work to be done. Where to start? How to continue? Are we wasting our time? Is it worth it, losing friends? Sometimes we're scared.

We may get into futile arguments with people around what is and what isn't "fake news."

We may hit a wall dealing with people who say: I don't appreciate all that negativity. Just turn off the news and be happy.

Denial, denigration, name-calling, media misinformation, threats to friendships and jobs. Many people who care about truths blocked by the mainstream powers-that-be have faced all of those. There's also increasing censorship. Emails sometimes don't get through.

It is easy to believe, it's too late, it's too much.

But what about the air we breathe, the water we drink, the islands of plastic drifting in the ocean? What about mass immigration, porous borders, totalitarian ideologies like Communism and Islam.

You may want to engage better with the people closest to you - families and friends.

You may feel afraid when you speak out. How can you become comfortable reaching out?

You may want to work more on the public level, the civic - from the local school board, to municipal affairs, to a federal political party.

How do you begin?

How do you continue?

What do you do when you run out of energy and out of ideas?

The workshop brings us together so we learn more effective actions we can take.


S.I.N. -

S.I.N. - an approach that is stimulating, invigorating and nourishing.

We're stimulated by new approaches, different ideas. We're invigorated by the contact with each other, and the "baby step" challenges we take on. We're nourished by everything.

L.I.F.E. -

L.I.F.E. - an approach that is loving, intelligent, fun and effective.

Effectiveness is essential. We look at people who have been and are effective. What have they done? What are their approaches, their tools, their inner strengths? And we crib from them.

Fun. If it isn't fun, we dry up. It can be fun, for instance, to try out Bill Warner's new do-not-engage strategy for debating. The person we're debating is left flailing. They expected us to engage. No. We do something much more powerful.

Intelligent. We need intelligence for what we're up against. Instinct also helps - having the sense that something is wrong. Why is a religion of peace burning embassies, murdering people in its name?

Loving. Life loving, in fact. It is a commitment to life, to a good loving life with human rights and freedoms, that is at the core of the commitment to take part in the social world.


There's more: courage, commitment, connection, community. It can be frightening, to take on the forces against human rights and freedoms. It takes courage.

Change doesn't happen immediately. It takes commitment.

And for many of us, support makes a huge difference. For many of us, it takes connection and community.

Sonya Jay Porter

Elsa is an incredible person, writing the truth for us all on so many subjects - political correctness, the climate, the UN, the EU (or rather, the European Dictatorship) and also on the subject which is one of the most important at the moment - the spread of Islamisation throughout the world.
         May I recommend that you watch the excellent cartoon she has created for young school children on the teachings of Islam.
         And here she goes again, with yet something more! Whatever it is about, whatever she creates, I know it will be worth watching and reading - there is so little genuine Truth out there in the public media, but Elsa is a True Truth Sleuth!

Sonya Jay Porter, who for 25 years has been working with UKIP, the UK Independence Party, to get her country out of the European Union


Gordon Miller

Elsa is a missionary for truth. I have had the pleasure of knowing Elsa for many years now and have admired her steadfast campaign to expose the truth on a range of topics, but for the most part Islam. She has interviewed literally dozens of experts who have studied and had firsthand experience with Islam. All of these, and much more, can be heard on her website. Elsa believes, and I agree, that only when there is open discussion and public debate about the tenets of Islam (i.e. free speech) will the world be free from the Islamic Jihad. In other words, “The truth shall set you free.” Elsa is the ”Truth Sleuth.”

Gordon Miller, long time environmental conservationist, believer in climate science history, challenger of climate models, dissenter on Canada's 1982 Constitution, believer in the dignity of the individual (i.e. the essence of Judeo-Christian values) and advocate of minimal government at the federal level.


Nicole D

Elsa is a spiritual healer and a brilliant writer. She is also for me a pillar of strength and a voice of reason.
          And her music videos are a reminder that there is a beauty in this world too! My favorite clip is There is No More Islam.

Nicole Davidoff, passionate advocate of human rights and freedoms, passionately against any ideology that is totalitarian, like Islam and Communism, cat lover.


Ramachandra Abhyankar

I came to know about Dr. Elsa Schieder ("Elsa") through her interviews with Islam experts Robert Spencer, Bill Warner, Citizen Warrior,  and others. Many people were introduced  to Elsa through her highly informative video for children, about Islam. Through her work, Elsa has helped clear the confusion surrounding Islam, making it possible for people to learn the truth about Islam.
         Islam is just one area; Elsa has sought the truth in many areas, and has a unique talent to clarify issues and motivate people.
          I am especially indebted to Elsa for making me aware of the Islamic Doctrine of  Al-Wala Wal-Bara, which I now know to be the key for understanding Islam. Even after studying several books on Islam, I was not aware of the Islamic doctrine of Al-Wala Wal-Bara. This key doctrine is at the heart of Islam, and makes the other Islamic doctrines of Islam, like Jihad and Sharia, easily comprehensible.
          Elsa has also taught me to not give up even when confronted by obstacles, such as the now ubiquitous censorship by the media.
          Elsa is an inspiration and  an example for all seekers of truth!

Ramachandra B. Abhyankar lives in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. He is Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Indiana State University, in Terre Haute, Indiana USA.


Mary Andrew

When I came upon Elsa's work (like her great kid's video), I had educated myself on what Islam is, had been galvanised to protest by the horrific slaughter of children in the Manchester bombing, and was also trying to get the truth out on a lot of Facebook sites. But I felt isolated, downcast and daunted by the mountainous size of the problem. I have always been utterly anti-racist, but my friends thought I had become a bigot. I didn't know what to do. 
         Elsa's amazing, inspirational work has become a beacon of light to me, and her friendship has furnished me with the encouragement and support (and occasional rap over the knuckles!) which I desperately needed to become tougher, more confident, and much more active. Moreover, she has introduced me to new friends in the movement (against Sharia, and in support of British sovereignty - connected issues), from whom I am constantly learning, and with whom I can work, and protest, much more effectively. I no longer feel alone; united we stand!  Thank you, Elsa, so much for all you have done to embolden me, and nurture my development. I am truly grateful! 

Mary Andrew recently co-founded a local branch of the new and fast-growing For Britain political party, to work for a voice in mainstream politics. She's just been invited to write for the For Britain website. She still regularly attending protests, now along with great new friends.


Jeff Himmelberger

I admire Elsa’s life-long commitment to activism through ever vigilant truth sleuthing, and I'm thrilled that her next series of interviews will tell untold stories of activists who've been ignored by mainstream media. I'm hopeful that Elsa’s provocative interviews will stretch personal comfort zones, reach wide audiences, and break through brick walls.
          Elsa’s idea of interviewing people who do sustained truth-telling is perfectly aligned with who she is, and these interviews will be AWESOME!

Jeff Himmelberger is a left-leaning liberal from Massachusetts who fortuitously enjoys a deep and enduring friendship with Elsa. For the past fifteen years Elsa has been challenging Jeff’s assumptions and expanding his hard-wired thinking habits.


Elaine Black

I really want to thank you, Elsa, for your deep dedication and endless hard work in trying to right the wrongs. I don’t follow all of your activities, but am very aware of the bigger picture in what you do and know that your heart works to make the world a better place. You deserve every accolade that may never come your way - just know that so many of us think this.

Elaine Black has always believed in ‘principles’: Truth is based on principle and on facts. The great English painter Francis Bacon whose work is often considered controversial for it’s painful distorted imagery, once said "people tend to be offended by facts, or what used to be called truth." These are the tenets of my belief, and to that end, I have run a ’newswire’ service for over a decade to allow others to formulate their knowledge based on exposure to truth and facts rather than lies and distortions.
