Poor awareness in the areas such as Islam and migration gives rise to contradictions that divide society. Divisive topics help wannabe-autocrats to gain power and drive attention away from the topics that may be more burning. With the public debate ruled by emotions, it is evident that the policies the policy-makers develop will be neither in the best interest of us nor all kinds of them.

Our aim is for the decisive majority of opinion-makers and the receptive public to share a common baseline of beliefs based on verified facts and solid research. We do not want to stand by politics based on a mixture of half-truths, touristic impressions and misleading inferences. We wish to support evidence-based policy-making.
At Datalyrics, you will find thorough explanations of some common contradictions based on a variety of premier sources and our own investigations in a painstakingly condensed form, You can particularly rely on content marked by icon, which was further reviewed by distinguished external referees. Whether you choose to read one of the long-reads or are happy with the short Summaries of topics, your reading will take a fraction of the time it would otherwise take to learn some information with the same accuracy.
