Stories are enacted in the world with others, not authored, they emerge from the lived experiences of human existence, through speaking and acting in the world with others. Stories, unlike propaganda, do not insulate one from reality, but rather confront one with reality. The particularity of stories preclude an all embracing omnipotent narrative that could subsume inconsistencies into a single narrative, and holds open the plurality of human experience that resists universal consistency. There is an inherent contingency in story that distinguishes it from propaganda, as Arendt suggests:

That every individual life between birth and death can eventually be told as a story with beginning and end is the prepolitical and prehistorical condition of history, the great story without beginning and end. But the reason why each human life tells its story and why history ultimately becomes the storybook of mankind, with many actors and speakers and yet without any tangible authors, is that both are the outcome of action. For the great unknown in history, that has baffled the philosophy of history in the modern age, arises not only when one considers history as a whole and finds that its subject, mankind, is an abstraction which never can become an active agent; the same unknown has baffled political philosophy from its beginning in antiquity and contributed to the general contempt in which philosophers since Plato have held the realm of human affairs. The perplexity is that in any series of events that together form a story with a unique meaning we can at best isolate the agent who set the whole process into motion; and although this agent frequently remains the subject, the ‘hero’ of the story, we never can point unequivocally to him as the author of its eventual outcome. (Arendt, HC, pp. 184-185)
