  •  That is one aspect of personal responsibility. (5+ / 0-)

    Persons are the measure of ideas and persons are themselves ranked, so that the status of the person (how responsive he is to superiors) defines the importance of his/her pronouncements. And it is largely a verbal issue. Because responsible persons respond to prompts and those prompts are largely verbal (aurally perceived). That is the basis for the importance of radio as a distributor of propaganda.
    There is somewhat of an irony in instinct-driven people being apparently directed by superficial optics (what things look like) while, at the same time they are particularly susceptible to being orally propagandized. IMHO, it is unclear to what extent this oral propaganda actually effects the desired response. We assume it works because people use it over and over. But, it may be that it is just a matter of the disseminators' habits.  What will Rush do with himself, if he can't talk for hours and hours?
