RogerGLewis: “window-dressing to deceive hopelessly gullible Tory party voters.”
That is quoting.

“I have long puzzled over why even intelligent supporters of Brexit almost universally believe that Brexit took place – in the sense of anything more than a piece of meaningless window-dressing to deceive hopelessly gullible Tory party voters.”
My Point directed at Threaders and John alike not specifically bezuhov1 is
Summarised by Quine in Two Dogmas.
“Differences of degree not Kind”.
Two dogmas of empiricism.
´´As an empiricist, I continue to think of the conceptual scheme of science as a tool, ultimately, for predicting future experience in the light of past experience. Physical objects are conceptually imported into the situation as convenient intermediaries — not by definition in terms of experience, but simply as irreducible posits18b comparable, epistemologically, to the gods of Homer. Let me interject that for my part I do, qua lay physicist, believe in physical objects and not in Homer’s gods; and I consider it a scientific error to believe otherwise.´´ http://www.ditext.com/quine/quine.html
Brexit and Covid are both Managed narratives, with narratives and Kremlin watching alike the imprecise science of reading between the lines and an interpretation of a sum of the Unsaid makes for long discussions should one wish to glean some sort of coherent “real” Politik.
Wittgenstein put it rather well and he was not intentionally mendacious.
“Remember that we sometimes demand explanations for the sake not of their content, but of their form. Our requirement is an architectural one; the explanation a kind of sham corbel that supports nothing.”
― Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations
Narratives are Wittgenstein’s sham corbells that support nothing They are comfortable and sometimes uncomfortable tall stories hidden in plain sight.
WHY FACEBOOK WAS REALLY DOWN TODAY & WHY MSM IS MAKING A HUGE DEAL ABOUT THE WHISTLEBLOWER
In this or one of the connected videos, Highimpact flix man says More Blow than whistle in the Facebook whistleblower on CNN.
Under the video, he offers this quote from Sean Parker ( the ” Napster ” kid)
Sean Parker, former Facebook President said, years ago, “God only knows what it (the Facebook Platform) does to our children’s brains.” “If the thought process that went into building these applications…that thought process was all about…how do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible. And that means that we need to sort of giving you a little DOPAMINE HIT every once and a while because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that’s gonna get you to contribute more content. And that’s gonna get you more likes and comments. It’s a social-validation feedback loop. It’s exactly the kind of thing that a hacker, like myself, would come up with. You’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology. The inventors/creators….understood this consciously and WE DID IT ANYWAY.”
so pterodactyl when you say
“This proves that all our misery is voted for and self-inflicted.”
I don’t agree, for me, the three-ring circus is offered under a false bill of goods, most certainly it does not do what it says on the tin.

Note: Why I use the term Political Correctness, instead of Liberalism or Socialism?
The reasons include:
1. The confusion over what ‘liberalism’ means – to some a free marketeer, to others a socialist. My definition of political correctness is broad and includes most mainstream conservatives, libertarians and anarchists; who are nowadays all significantly PC.
2. Differences in usage between the UK and US: in the UK the Liberals are a strange mixture of business- and farming-friendly Centrists with pacifist Leftists of an upper middle class type; in the US Liberals are the furthest Left of mainstream political ideologies.
3. That although PC clearly evolved from (what is in the US) called liberalism, PC is the outcome of a distinctive ‘turn’ in Leftist politics, which became obvious in the mid-1960s. In its striking, explicit, surface features PC is something new under the sun, never before seen in history.
4. Leftist political groups have, over the years, called themselves Communist, Socialist, Social Democrat, Liberal Democrat, Democrat and various other names – but none of these have become dominant, and none are fully inclusive of Leftism.
5. The dawning realization that the phenomena collected together under the jokey term ‘political correctness’ was a vastly more robust and malignant thing than I had ever imagined.
So that what seemed either silly or trivial or both, will end by destroying that modernity which made PC possible in the first place.
Yet we can perceive now, in advance of all this, that even when PC is utterly swept-away it will be blind to what has happened, and to what it had done. PC will always see itself as being on the side of the angels, whatever its outcome may be.
It is a truly amazing thing, this political correctness; something so paltry, so puny, so soft – yet wreaking such devastation while rendering the devastation imperceptible.
It seemed, therefore, worth discussing under its new name, as a phenomenon not truly new at its deepest level – but new in its combination of idealistic, delusional subjectivism with deadly, plodding bureaucracy.

Authentic Discourses on Decisions to Act. ( informed consent ?)
A golden Rule in folklores Canon
holds what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the Gander
do unto others that which to you would be done
thus applied in discussion, we should always avoid slander.
Leave at the first introduction
the habits of Authority and induction
When those listening seem deaf to what you tell
refrain if you please from poisoning the well
if your working hypothesis requires certitude
refrain from tailoring cloth that renders the emperor nude
If to your point, you wish others to allude
refrain from a hypocritical sneering attitude.
When your correspondent appeals to evidence
consider their sources, were they well meant?
In all matters, skepticism will serve you with equivalence
and always remember to mistrust the Government.
“man müsse das Volk stets in Armuth erhalten, damit es gehorsam bleibe.”(2)
Belloc characterised the reformation as
´´a rising of the rich against the poor´´,(1)
´and indeed Calvin had written the unfortunate statement:
´´The people must always be kept in poverty in order that they remain obedient´´.(2)
You won’t — I really believe — get too much out of reading it. Because you won’t understand it; the content will seem strange to you. In reality, it isn’t strange to you, for the point is ethical. I once wanted to give a few words in the foreword which now actually are not in it, which, however, I’ll write to you now because they might be a key for you: I wanted to write that my work consists of two parts: of the one which is here, and of everything which I have not written. And precisely this second part is the important one.On his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, in a letter to Ludwig von Ficker (1919), published in Wittgenstein : Sources and Perspectives (1979) by C. Grant Luckhard
