Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

this is an excellent point for our narrative. I think we should put the concept in our list becuase the narrative is already there. Colman somehow did it.

Weakiest link. Wonderful.

We will have to join the different pieces together in some kind of list of narratives (myths) and simple concepts that we should use.

I would take different simple myths. Not only one. Three or four maybe as the US right-wing?

Weakeat link, sustainible future...

other possibilities:
Any of the Colman first paragraph statement,
Strenght of team work (strength of cooperation in front of comeptition..), fairness (it needs a narrative, a  set of histories to explain it).

And of course, we have the big elephant in the room. Do we take the rich vs poor narrative of equality... do we try to change it? can we change it?

Plus, we probably need a new set of narratives to put in a new single concept never used before to add to the list.

Regarding how to attack their myths, you are already doing a great job. But we need our market efficiency myths too in another set ideas as I propose in the diary. You have written these ideas in different diaries related with different topics. Improtance of the minimum wage for efficiency. Improtance of state regulation for business growth...

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
