Eric Darton on projections and marching orders:

July 29, 2009

“Projections are part of the game. The audience members use what they take in to make the story they need at the moment. But the story-making process of good drama or literature can knock us off our center because the language opens us up, unwittingly, and sometimes unwillingly, to truths we’d rather not engage. So it’s at the level of language that political power receives its marching orders.”
