Getting to paytime

Look at charts 2 and 3 here. This is the whole point of Conservatism - everything else is window dressing. The Clause 28 stuff, replaced by new social attitudes, all these are just costumes which are assumed and shed as it suits exigency. Like in America - do educated senior Republicans really disbelieve in evolution - of course not. It's all about getting to pay time.

I just commented on coalescent's blog. There are much worse things than losing an election. Just like there are worse things in a marriage than a divorce.

But lest it seem that I am only all 'boo hoo what about the poor people' (because people might think that's the necessary pain - the sadness they feel). I also say that this is bad, bad economics. It's like medicine based on the theory of the humours - if you survived the blood letting it was no thanks to the doctor.

In a sense this is people believing their own propaganda. They invent a false narrative, and they think they can control it, they think they can propagate it but be outside of it, but eventually it will destroy them.

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
