The ICONs Have It.

Iconography: “the set of symbols or images used in a particular field of activity such as music or the movies and recognized by people as having a particular meaning.”

I am a very visual person, so this video really spoke to me. Conservatives who really love this country, her history, founders, and esteem her founding documents are losing the battle for her soul to powerful icons.

You doubt me? Pay attention and you will see why, in our postmodern milieu, visual fluff trumps reasoned substance. It’s actually scary, but needful. We need to grab on to this concept with both hands. Sometimes to get to the mind, you must go through the heart.

That is–The Power & Danger of Iconography.
