You missed this one. You’re argument is effectively scapegoating ‘narrative’ as a bad thing. This is exactly where myth creation becomes necessary and why creating myth that benefits humanity is so important. Propaganda is neither a good or bad thing, it’s just a thing. It is perfectly plausible and acceptable to create and disseminate good propaganda. An example being the perpetual percolating stream that yourself and many, many others are involved in attempting to get out into the consciousness of Western-centric brains who’ve been propagandized from birth to essentially believe it’s perfectly acceptable to be a shitty-ass asshole.
While I completely agree with you on your argument that selling narrative is what our modern world is all about and would even go so far to admit that the majority of narrative shat out by the Empire is destructive for civilization, if not humanity, the “narrative,” or “propaganda” consistently pushed by the Empire is merely in alignment with its never-ending interest in keeping capitalism as the unquestionable economic doctrine, which far exceeds propaganda as the root of all our problems.
You have your narrative/propaganda, they have theirs.
Only by further disseminating propaganda/narrative in alignment with an ideology that takes into consideration the well-being of humanity and the planet we live on will we be able to potentially undermine the fecal propaganda that presently rules the planet.
