“They say human beings only use ten percent of their brains.”
“They say the universe is expanding.”
“They say that going green is hard to do.”
“They say that French is the language of love.”
“They say that Michelangelo embedded powerful and even dangerous messages in the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel.”
“They say that Defense Wins Championships.”
“They say that it is impossible for a family to live on one income”
“They say that we in our generation define our identities with the products we buy.”
“They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”
“They say that Rush Limbaugh is the 800 lb. gorilla in the Republican Party, but I think that’s mean spirited to say that because I think he’s down to 650 lbs., so I think one should be fair to him about this whole thing.” (Arnold Schwarzenegger)
It’s scary. Really it is . . . I mean seriously, who exactly is this unseen, ambiguous, world authoritative, schizophrenic voice that has the earth under it’s complete sway. You know exactly what I am talking about . . . You hear it every day. Spooky. Who on earth is “they”?
Whoever it may be–“they” has learned the extremely powerful art of persuasion. I mean seriously, if “they” said it, now one questions. No one . . . I don’t get it . . . and no one ever knows who “they” is.
Just try it. I dare you. Next time someone says, “They say that opposites attract” (or the like) –flat out ask who “they” is. Well wouldn’t you like to know? I certainly would. . . Perhaps we should start questioning “they” and maybe “they” would become less persuasive and authoritative around the world. Hmmm . . . maybe we are on to a world break through. Who knows? You don’t think so? Well, you know–I really just don’t care what “they” said anymore.
