Student or Learner
Hello, yesterday I was trying to find the appropriate word for expressing the following.
It is a world full of X.
I am looking for the X word.
What I want to express is that we live in a world which is full of false "beliefs" (in a broad sense).
For example I am Greek and I know that most foreigners believe that Greeks are hospitable persons. Other people believe that Scottish people are stingy.
For me these statements do not hold and probably they are
- false beliefs (too general)
- myths (not so appropriate)
- legends (more for fairytale and more appropriate for one person-hero)
- typicalities (I do not think this fits)
I am trying to express false beliefs of the masses (masses is a valid word meaning the crowds right?)
So how do you express that?
I would like to thank you in advance for your help.
