An interesting speech below on how the construction of our own narratives from a single, or few, sources can lead to a situation where we find it “impossible to see” beyond those stories that we are fed from the easiest of sources. It also makes an interesting point about the power of repetition. The most powerful message, secondly, can be summed up in one short quote:
Power is not just the ability to tell the story of another person, but to make it the definitive story of that person.
The question this made me think of was (obviously) what if people knew more of the stories of everyone else?
