The article explores why facts don't always change our minds and how false beliefs persist. 

People often hold onto false beliefs because of the desire to belong to a social group, which can be more important than understanding the truth. The most effective way to change people's minds is to become friends with them, to integrate them into your tribe, and give them somewhere to go. 

The best approach to changing people's minds is to be kind first and right later.
