10/28 Class Thoughts.

Editor’s Note: I’m so exhausted by the time I get home on Thursday that there’s just no way I can get to my thoughts until the following day. =(

Rick Shankmen may have done a number on my head with his debunking discussion but he sure managed to educate us on why we as a people tell stories and myths. I particularly like what he said about myths specificically:

  • They have to be simple
  • They’ve got to be about something that makes us feel good (in his examples, feeling good about America)
  • They have to be so ingrained in us, that we can’t step outside of them to take them seriously
