A movement is very easily sidelined when organised around a set theme. Decentralised and coordinated action in both deed and word is much harder to stop.
Gandhi was correct, “be the change you want to see in the world”.
With the internet Be the Change and just let others know too.

Steve Baker makes the same point in his detailed evidence to the Brexit committee.







The Slog

win_20190127_120025 The Western world’s élite media set are not obsessed with Brexit: they are hell-bent on the destruction of everything Brexit is about. Cast adrift by the very politicians who claim to represent them, the People of Britain have one remaining weapon – electoral blackmail to threaten the political class with extinction.


I confess to feeling a little sorry at the moment for all those hungry cats chased up trees in which they are now stuck. All over Britain, the trees are full of felines starving to death because there’s no room on news bulletins or in tabloids for those little snippets that make us go “Aaaah!”

Although such items are always referred to as “human interest” stories, it is amazing how often they feature animals.

But for now, I see no octopus about to predict the result of the Grand National, no kittens whose best friend is a…

There’s a mild kind of bullshit which is common, entirely understandable, and produced by many of us, including me. But it’s insidious, and I’ll suggest that it might contribute to bigger problems.

Bullshit as Harry Frankfurt characterises it – in contrast to Jerry Cohen’s notion of bullshit – involves phoniness, indifference to truth. (See my earlier post for a comparison of Frankfurt’s and Cohen’s notions of bullshit, and some examples.)

In my view, bullshit is a matter of degree, and a mild form of Frankfurt-bullshit can often be found on TV, especially at the start of programmes.

Here are two recent examples from British television. The first is from top chef Michel Roux Jr., or rather, from whoever wrote the words which he read out at the start of the programme:

Heisenberg, Gödel, and Chomsky walk into a bar. Neo-Classical Economics is the Joke!

Godel Escher Bach art print! https://www.redbubble.com/people/comastar/works/10658819-godel-escher-bach-art-print  Another interesting discussion of Lars Syl's Real Economics Blog Page. Economics and reality from Lars Syll ‘Modern’ economics has become increasingly irrelevant to the understanding of the real world. In his seminal book Economics and Reality(1997), Tony Lawson traced this irrelevance to the failure of economists to match their deductive-axiomatic methods … Continue reading Heisenberg, Gödel, and Chomsky walk into a bar.
