This episode of Living Myth is about meaningful words and how words really matter.  Beginning with Donald Trump’s claim that he is a “stable genius”, Michael Meade begins to open up the meaning of words like stable and genius, fate and fame.  He follows the old roots of words and winds up at the intersection where an obsession with fame turns into the danger of living in infamy.  Whereas genuine fame would involve a revelation of one’s natural genius, infamy involves an inevitable fall into disrepute, discredit and ultimately disgrace. Infamy proclaims the underside of fame, the shadow side of power and the hollow shell of seeming success.

It doesn’t take a genius to see the writing on the wall. The operative word when it comes to the destiny of Donald Trump is more likely to be infamy, than the epitome of genius and stability.
