    I like the sentiment a lot that it would be more accurate and influential with the masses. Individuals with open minds and hearts are likely to accept change when a narrative's discussion relates personally to the senses. By example, politics may be discussed freely with only that which pertains to the individuals religion will be heard or sensed (Atheistic socialism v. Christian liberty, demonic legal positivism v. the laws of nature and of nature's God, etc.).
