Here’s an example of a believable scenario that’s scripted. He calls it a social experiment. You’d believe it was real because he says it is. But it’s not real. The whole thing is staged. A little reasoning and you can see it.
Yet people use it to prove points. To battle. To argue. To fight. To get political. All based on fiction-presented-as-fact.
It’s important, imo, to take the time to distinguish between art and reality, especially when art is presented-as-reality.
This case below is even worse, because this youtube personality makes it _sound scientific_, making it all the more believable. To me, that’s borderline criminal in my mind, because people BELIEVE things that have the aura of scientific nearly without questioning it at all.
Very powerful persuasive tool. Very dangerous in the wrong set of hands.
