There’s many presses. Youtube and Podcast is press, as is Facebook, Fox news, CNN, Breitbart, Twitter – all of it.
So who has more power? A meme or CNN? A Podcaster with millions of listeners or ABC news? Fox or Youtube? They’re all a necessary part of Democracy and a free press is #1. Literally. First Amendment #1.
Feeling is a part of it all too. You can’t think without feeling. How do we decide what’s important? It’s not a rational choice but an emotional “push”.
I’ve chosen it as what I think of as “correct”. Other views that consider the brain alone as the place where everything about who we are exists for example, I consider “incorrect”.
