He's saying the way you fight bullies in the real world - the way you stop Nazis - is by having more compelling fantasies than they do and making sure everybody can see that.

I have been saying all this election season, when people around me express incredulity that someone as resolutely false and repugnant as Trump could have gathered so much belief and loyalty, that it's not about Trump himself, it's about the story he's telling. He's telling a story that a lot of people want to be true—however reprehensible I find it, it wouldn't catch on like wildfire if it didn't appeal. Narrative is the best way to hack the human brain. There has to be a better story.

Thank you for this reading; I bounced fairly strongly off The NeverEnding Story when I was shown it for the first time in college, but now I want to watch it again.
