An excellent article that suggests our very notion of love has been marketed to us. Exactly why does an 8 year old need to know about relationships and break-ups? And what does it say about us that unchecked cliches make money over and over?
This isn’t the greatest article, but the idea of “message discipline” makes my heart sink, esp. when one of the arguments of this blog is that a better politics comes from a people that can disagree articulately and thoughtfully.
