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

The reason it's called Vision, I presume, is because it is akin to the artistic process, where only the medium involves facts - and those facts are generally subsumed into experience and intuition.

Inspirational communication (another word for Art perhaps) is very hard to factualize, and I would contend that the relentless pursuit of logic is responsible for the vast swathes of hypnagogic mass communication that have replaced the inspirational variety.

That is true if the policy is existential.

Facts by themselves are rather useless: only when supporting an argument do they become useful. And most of the arguments made every day are essentially 'emotional'. Whether or not we accept an argument is often an intuitive estimation of whether or not acceptance will make us feel better.

They are useful when undermining an argument, too.

difference between communication and communion.

the latter does not countenance the Bright Shiny Lie! take that away and words are no longer needed, no words, no lies.

communication is the notes, communion is the music.
