Many things on my my mind as I type. The stories we tell and and the stories we believe... we are all mental constructs of what we want to believe. What I want to believe is that the noble path in life is a constancy of thought and actions that focuses the mind on  what is possible , standing against a conflicting narrative that some believe is reality. It is our task as humans to confront that false perception of reality and develop understanding among our fellow human beings that have been hypnotized by televised propaganda and have adopted  a false worldview encouraged by forces they dont understand. Lakoff and Johnson have articulated why people have adopted these false narrative- they are comforting and familiar despite their dysfunction.  

As people who can see beyond the false narrative, we have a responsibility  to connect with those lost admits a sea of false  information and alluring but ultimately soul-crushing  narrative. How do we connect with those lost in the abyss of fox new and Koch propaganda? a road worth travelling requires many steps and to rush the journey often causes more problems than it solves.What are we to do against a flood of easily digestible propaganda ?
that is the discussion

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
