Communication in the 21 Century COMM 101 Week Three Notes Bb reading – Don’t Think of an Elephant  Framing 101 o The first lesson students receive in studies of framing is: don’t think of an elephant o When we negate a frame, we evoke the frame o When arguing against the other side, don’t use their language b/c it evokes their frame & not the frame you seek to establish o A frame provides a ready-made relationship between words, concepts, & consequences that enables even those who don’t understand the idea to “explain” or convey that idea and its “implications” to other people  The Strict Father Family Model o This philosophy views the world as a fearful place filled with evil o Children must be obedient & learn from the father who is the moral authority  The Nurturant Family Model o Gender neutral & responsibility equivalent o See children as innately good & capable of becoming better o Six types of progressives who derive their shared sense of mission from certain core issues:  Socioeconomic progressives  Identity politicis progressives  Environmentalists  Civil liberties progressives  Spiritual progressives  Antiauthoritarians  Bonding with the Voters o Conservative positions are held together by the strict father family model o Progressives don’t have a frame  Metaphors That Kill o The nation as a person: if the other person (nation) commits an aggression, that it’s okay to strike back  Betrayal of Trust o Most people are less concerned that the lie was told than they are about why the lie was told  What the Right Wants o God above all, man above the nature, adults above children, Western culture above other cultures, & America over other countries  What Unites Progressives o Values must come out of a shared progressive vision o Principles must realize these progressive values  Equity, equality, democracy, a government for a better future, ethical business, values-based foreign policy o Policy directives must fit these values & principles o A 10-word philosophy that encapsulates all of the above must be presented 9/7 in class notes Don’t Think of an Elephant!  Framing o No one can stop their mind from summoning the bulkiness, the grayness etc. o Frames are the mental structures that shape the way we view the world o Frames are the connotations that we instill words w/ & the contexts in which we place those value laden words o No one sees or hears frames, they are part of what scientists refer to as the “cognitive unconscious,” inaccessible to the conscious mind, but at play in our decisions o Enveloping words in a perspective, a frame, provides a ready- made relationship between words  Political Parties as Families o Progressive and conservative positions derive from two opposing paradigms for families: the strict father family model and the nurturing family model o Strict father family philosophy views the world as a fearful place – in this world there are rights & wrongs  Strict Father o Teaches children to be good – children must be obedient & learn from the father who is the moral authority o Conservatives link their father model to their view of government o Government should not reward those who lack discipline & become dependent upon others  The Nurturant Family Model o Progressives: nurturant parents world views gender neutral & responsibility equivalent o Nurturant parents see children as innately good & capable of becoming better  The Progressive World View o Socioeconomic – think that everything is a matter of money & class o Identity politics – say it is time for their oppressed groups to get its share now o Environmentalists – think in terms of sustainability of the earth & sacredness of the earth o Civil liberties – want to maintain freedoms against threats to freedom o Spiritual – have a nurturant form of religion or spirituality & their community o Antiauthoritarian – believe there are all sorts of illegitimate forms of authority out there & we have to fight them o Lackoff (author) agrees progressives lack a clear & connected fame & worldview
