    you simply demonstrate what is good about what you have and people will naturally be drawn to it, because they see the benefits and want those benefits for themselves:  "explaining the tangible benefits of understanding reality as it is."

    as opposed to the dominant form of promotional advertising filled with (false) promises and manipulations, intended to persuade people into a purchase or decision they would otherwise not make because they want to avoid the negative consequences.    Promotion--making something appear better than it is, making something bad appear good--turns reality upside down.

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
