‘Self-Education… Through Entertainment’ (2015)

Working on his master’s degree…

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that this is one of the major points I make: that we “educate” ourselves through entertainment. We do it passively, without knowing that we’re doing it. That’s what makes it so effective.

I didn’t have this insight until 2015. I credit the writings of R.J. Rushdoony for it.

The thing that makes it so effective is that our defenses are totally down. It’s only a movie. Only a TV show. But that “only” is a killer.

We can consume this stuff with our defenses up, and learn from it. But just make sure you get rid of the “only” first.
