Zeno of Citium , who founded Stoicism in 301 BC, expressed his doctrines in notoriously terse arguments and concise maxims.  However, Chrysippus, the third head of the Stoic school, wrote over 700 books fleshing these ideas out and adding complex arguments to support them. 

Words Have Power
Your Words Have Power as Well.




What we know, is that we do not have to be weaponless. We do not have to fight or overcome the propaganda turned on us -- or aimed at our children. What every post on Aggressive Persuasion and Weaponized Language on this blog are for, what each is meant to provide, is a method of protection, and education. Awareness, so that you are not unarmed. That's the whole point.

Our Generation is basically weaponless, but our children do not have to be. They can know and learn and understand the forces of persuasion, and propaganda. They can learn that What they are assaulted with, and understand that it is in fact, an assault. An assault they do not have to endure.

As the song said back inside the times of another rise of propaganda -- Teach your children well.
