These myths don't come from anywhere - they're mentioned off-handedly by outlets as respected as the New York Times or Politico, and have become a mainstay on German talkshows during the Covid pandemic. This talk will present some of these myths, debunk them, and then explore what this willingness to believe complete bullshit about other parts of the world says about our tech discourse - and why they're dangerous. Lastly, it will attempt to give people some tools to not be duped as easily in the future.
