The Nero-Aristocracy and the use of Narrative vs Truth
RedNeckoBlogger ^ | 01/15/2014 | RedNeckoBlogger

Sadly it seems most politicians (especially Democrats in Washington, D.C. and "Blue" states) today are seeking to become a “Nero-Aristocracy”… (yes I meant Nero). They don’t seek to govern but to rule, to declare themselves our “owners” not our public servants. Many citizens seek to avoid politics and related debates/discussions... but now see our liberty and prosperity being bled away! Lots of previously uninterested are now forced to get involved (such was the origin of Tea Party groups). Both parties are in this pursuit of more and more control of our very lives, but the Democrats with media in tow, are far better at it. Using their corporate media allies (yes “progressives” the media are EVIL corporations too), any challenge is fiercely attacked and demonized (like Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Ted Cruz and now even RINO Chris Christie). For our Nero-Aristocracy rulers know that to maintain their quasi-“royalty” status, we common folk must be kept roiled, divided, at odds with each other and most importantly ignorant (oh..."public" education)! So any and all divisions, be they by ethnic, sex or class shall be exploited to the max… as “narrative” has replaced truth (truth especially God’s Truth is NOT welcome… ask Phil Robertson).

For as mentioned before we now live now not in truth but in the liberal narrative… “war on women”, “conservatives hate poor people”, “corporate corruption is why we have inequality”, bla,bla,bla! Sadly, with (mega-rich 1%) media/Hollywood in their corner (the masters of narrative and storytelling), they “head-fake” away from truth and towards the (ends justifies the means) narrative (keep you mad and not thinking). When liberal narrative collides with truth (especially God’s Truth)… it is Truth that must yield!

Wasn’t sure if all would fit... and ecourages visits to the blog. Lotsa good stuff out there ya know ;). With internet we all can be bloggers, and on Facebook and other social media, we can all have our own “reality show”. Such is the 21st Century risks and rewards!

There is a whole area of counseling devoted to having people believe a new narrative about their relationship, that it is the storyline about themselves that they believe that is the cause of their unhappiness.

In other words, for this area of counseling “narrative is YOUR truth.”

And it’s also true that advertisers seem to operate on the same principle.

There was a huge effort by the NYTimes to rewrite the Benghazi narrative a week ago. It met huge pushback.

They want to own the narrative because they know that people see it in their minds as the truth.

Conservatives MUST find a way to either do better at the narratives than does the narrative pushing insiders, or conservatives must find a way to have people become independent thinkers willing to listen to new facts.

The bottom line, of course, is that there is only ONE “Way, Truth, Life”.

Here is a comment from Jim Robinson posted just one week ago that perhaps you should read. It’s #64:

The anger was well-directed, but the points so unclear, and the writing so sub-par, that I am actually dumber for having read it.

Humble, I actually am GLAD this one was excerpted. I only lost 5 IQ points. I could have lost up to 20.
