The Power of Words

Keep watching for at least 52 seconds. Then you’ll see why I posted this video.

Regardless of if you believe this video to be true or not, I wanted to point out the actual literary technique used here. I bet it has a name but I’m not sure what it is. But the primary attention grabber, the thing that makes you go ‘ooh clever!” is not the audio or video, but the words and how they are presented. The music, narration, and video are all superfluous to the words written save that they provide a structure for our society that has grown a little more dependent on video and audio for information distribution, with the exception that extraneous instruction would need to be added at the end of the paragraph to achieve effect or even more words would have to be written.

The power of words is universal and, because of it, sadly under appreciated by the people who wield them, myself included.
