Fleming says, "The six fundamental ideas are:
Now-identity. The word is not the thing.
Non-allness. One can never know or say all about anything.
Self-reflexiveness. People make abstraction of abstractions.
Probability principle. Where everything changes, probability--" certainty--is the basic idea.
Symbol-signal reactions. Symbol reaction involve thinking before reacting; signal reaction are stereotypical and automatic.
Extensionalization. Extensionalization is the scientific method--questioning, observing, evaluating, and revising. It refers also to non-verbal definitions."

Charles A. Fleming, "Understanding Propaganda from a G. S. Perspective," ETC.: A Review of General Semantics, 52( 1) (spring 1995):4.

Note: We have just denied the practicality of the fifth idea under most ordinary circumstances.
