Folding Ideas

I'm writing this description after the channel has seen a sudden surge in popularity. I'm also medicated and in a fighting mood. I just finished ranting on Twitter about the efforts in Canada to de-socialize our medicine and kill poor people. This is the YouTube channel where I talk about narrative theory: the mechanisms of storytelling. This encompasses the wider communications theories about the way that we process information, the techniques of how those messages are delivered, and the conglomerate application of all of the above.

The main subject is popular culture because it's easier to dissect and its messages are less likely to go interrogated because we're trained to view it as innocuous. "Just a movie" or "just a game."

Fascism is a loser ideology.
