Most often, he brings up the shocking statistic that twenty-five percent of all supermarket items contain corn.

The human mind is shaped to categorize beings into subcategories thus creating a larger gap between everyone. The dominant group most benefits from hegemonic ideas for they are unfamiliar and uncomfortable with change. These ideals don’t vanish; they have been imprinted into the minds therefore demanding a large amount of attention.

This communication behavior, according to the Face-Negotiation Theory, is called facework. Subsequently, people have the tendency to frame the set definition of “face” and pass the word “facework” inversely from one culture to the next, the Face-Negotiation theory has a generalization of cultural frameworks to observe facework negotiation. Stella Tiny-Toomey expanded her thoughts on this theory and hypothesizes face as an individual 's claimed sense of favorable social self-image in a relational and network context.
Foucault proclaims that we are products of the self. We are in relation to ourselves and we take action. Foucault was fascinated by what one or a group has to suppress and reject to form a positive conception of itself. He believed that our conception of ourselves as subjects depends on controlling or excluding whole classes of people who do not fit our enlightened category of "normal”. The same devices we use to understand and control these marginalised groups are also essential to understanding and controlling "normal” individuals.

The cultivation theory developed by George Gerbner (1967) conducted research on the impact of mass media and how as humans we inadvertently are influenced by the symbols and portrayals of the media.
