Thoughts from a mind trying to release itself from the ideals of its time.
Do you think you are misleading in any way? Did you have a good Halloween? Kids to take trick or treating?
Don't forget guy fawkes night tomorrow (november 5th).
I am misleading in a way, but only because persuasion requires it to an extent. In order to persuade people of something they don't believe or especially of something they would reject out of hand, you have to start by securing their confidence. You do this by establishing premises that you know they will agree with. Then you lead into the controversial areas, logically step by step, and suddenly they find themselves "believing" something they didn't think possible, or at least questioning their former beliefs. The reason I don't believe I am ultimately misleading is that I feel what I am tyring to persuade is true, whereas the western psyche is now long since persuaded of things that are not true. I am trying to undo that.Halloween was a lot of fun, trick or treating and all that sugary stuff.
