Are Black-and-White Narratives Manipulative?

Last year I was watching an interview with a foreign diplomat and found myself sucked into his perspective. His people were good people, he claimed, and they were being attacked by bad people. They were being attacked by a culture that didn’t love their children, were evil, a people who deserved to die. His military was operating in self defense as they attacked their enemies.

I can’t tell you how captivating the narrative was.

But doing a little research revealed the leader was more than a little biased. The truth is he was…

So I heard about a study this morning regarding crime. A researcher intentionally left a lot of loose change on his floor and seats and then dropped off his car at a car wash. He did this hundreds of times to see how often some of his change would be stolen.

Turns out, he was actually robbed one-third of the time. Not too bad, but not too great, either. I was rather surprised that it was even that often. I’ve not locked the door to my house in…

I recently attended my 10-year high school reunion and couldn’t believe just how much I’d forgotten over the last decade. I consider myself a very intentional person but I was blown away how many names, people, and events had completely slipped my mind.

One event that baffled me to no end was when I found out I had wronged someone I cared about in the fall of my junior year. Apparently, I didn’t stand up for them when I should have, it hurt this person’s feelings because she considered me a…

I used to think people liked compliments and so I gave them compliments. And it was true. People liked them. But the older I’ve become and perhaps the more healthy I’ve become spiritually and emotionally, the more I’ve realized my compliments weren’t given in altruism.

I’d have to say, without knowing it, I really just used compliments in order to make myself more likeable. It’s true if you are kind to people they think you’re pretty great. But the end of that is still about me. Flattery is less…

Last year I made friends with a child in Uganda who was abducted and mutilated by witch doctors. Amazingly, I also met a surgeon about the same time, a man named Randy Sherman who happened to be the worlds leading expert on repairing the exact damage done to the Ugandan boy. Needless to say, I introduced the two and the story went from tragedy to amazing and beautiful in only a few short months.

Randy and I happen to both be pilots, and I happen to own a seaplane he’d always wanted to fly. I got to thank Randy by…
