“Stories are for entertainment” is a made up western idea, hijacking the true purpose of stories.
The western world has the greatest denial in this area, and we don’t need to contribute to that.
The real purpose of stories is to transfer wisdom. And of course, making it entertaining surely helps. Entertainment is the glitter.
It makes a story more digestible. Making a story all about that turns it into Pepsi and French fries. Junk stories rot people’s minds.
