anecdote # 339 - motivational speaker (circa 1995)

some travelling show: How to Fix Your Life in
3 Hours thru Seminars. the secular revival meeting

staged lighting, music, scripts adeptly getting
people pumped with slogan solutions

glossy packages: hosts, flyers and promises.
shrug. a transitory high still lifts.

yeah, no saving the world but doesn't destroy it either. not really a money grab with what it costs to create the scene, anymore than movies or any other fictions that people happily invest in.
