#Whitewashing

whitewashinghistory

Stories, like a good meme, can
infect the mind
and
like a virus,
stories can be engineered
to have one single purpose:

shaping thoughts
bending wills
enslaving souls
transforming images
miscegenating cultures…

we paint stories
we sing stories
we televise stories
we codify stories
we study stories
we reenact stories

stories have a way of
shaping reality

Twist the facts and
a story becomes a lie with a nefarious purpose.
