“The fiction is taken as truth because the fiction is badly needed.” A quick introduction to Walter Lippmann and the commonality between him, Ellul, Bernays, Haidt, and Harari. People can’t personally perceive the world beyond their own sliver of firsthand experience.

If democracy is demands an “enlightened citizenry”, it’s likely doomed from the start. Paradoxically, there’s a stab at some hope in here too. Weird.
