It isn't what happens to people that shapes how we feel and what we choose to do, it's how people explain and articulate what has happened to us in our inner narrative. This is how two people can have nearly identical experiences and come away with two entirely different points of view and courses of action: In this interview with Christopher Doyon we get a glimpse of his inner narrative and how it has shaped his views and his plans: http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/0...l-be-the-most-powerful-organization-on-earth/ Here we have Infowars typically paranoid reaction to a Pentagon think-tank's research into how community & individual narratives effect viewpoints and chosen courses of action. http://www.infowars.com/pentagon-re...s-way-to-hijack-the-brain-with-false-stories/ It's interesting to note both the Pentagon's interest and Infowars' paranoia. It is what it is. Propagandists have tried to control the narrative since communities were first invented. It's hard to control the narrative. People being what we are, we react badly when we detect that someone is trying to control our inner narrative. Good luck with this Pentagon.
