Storytelling, emotion and vulnerability

First, read this:  http://www.fastcocreate.com/1680581/why-storytelling-is-the-ultimate-weapon

I will note that I have not yet read the related book but the article points to our vulnerabilities to manipulation when our emotions are being played.  As I said here:  https://facingthefireswithin.wordpress.com/2012/09/28/middle-east-rage/, we can be quite vulnerable to such techniques when our anger is strong.  This is hardly a new concept and the fear of mobs is very old.

If you walk your version of the path of Fire, you have a responsibility to be aware of this issue and work on ways to defend yourself.
