Notes by TK

Kyroot to :08. Only a creature privy to facts finds the facts disturbing, whereas creatures of acts-only would act to correct any disturbing acts. If acts could think you’d see them actually moving in response to thought; their thinking would be visible as movement. Creatures of facts don’t move when they think; they are immobilized by doubts rather than forced to move by disturbing facts. The more civilized a man becomes, the more uncomfortable he is, the more he suspects dysfunction, is prone to doubt.

The primary stage of news reporting is report of the event. An increasing sector of news reporting now focuses on people’s reactions (secondary stage) to events vs. the events per se. The third stage is now more necessary: reporting on reactions/responses to the reactions/responses of others.
