Apologising for his change of mind in making his irrational decision to support the doomed Mayhem (boohoo!) and her dodgy deal (27th March 2019), drainpipe-hat Mogg says Brexit may now be a ‘process rather than an event’, suggesting it could take time to fully break away from Brussels. The general public will be as mystified by his high-sounding statement as they are by anything else that comes out of the intellectually bankrupt group of people who are supposed to be running the country.
By suddenly moving to accept something he had previously rejected in no uncertain terms, in such an unprincipled manner, what Mogg means is ‘at least it will get us out of Europe’ so that we, the oligarchs & millionaires, can take total control of amending the ‘socialist’ mistake of 1945. That is what it’s all about for the Tory Party who persist in peddling their ‘National Interest’ garbage.
As things are, Brexit is an abstract ‘event’: in the current debate it is, like ‘the will of the people’, and ‘control’, a meaningless abstraction which can only become meaningful when it is seen as a process (Moggy’s correct there), or, more precisely, described as part of a system, demonstrating that all actions have consequences:-The Iraq War which was (and is) seen as an ‘event’ rather than as ‘process’ – in the minds of unthinking people it has become an abstraction carrying no meaning, ignoring the process fact that hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis died for the sake of the Bush/Blair adventure for oil. Blood on their hands. If they’d had any intelligence, the politicians who voted for the Bush/Blair escapade might have been able before they voted so catastrophically to have done a systems analysis of consequences. It would have had a pattern similar to the above.
You can’t put an abstraction into wheelbarrow – there’s nothing to grab hold of. You can always illustrate a process, give it a concrete form; you can’t illustrate an abstraction – it has no shape or form.
Remaining in the EU goes like this:-It’s just like writing haiku! In itself ‘haiku’ is an abstraction which results in ‘meaning’ being tipped into it by any Tom, Dick or Cynthia – all manner of ludicrous examples result.
‘Creativity’ is another abstraction.
People who think it’s rather a fancy idea to be ‘creative’ part with their money to a ‘Creative Writing Tutor’ imagining that it’s a serial process:-
Creative Writing Tutor ➠ ➠ docile creative writer ➠ ➠ fame & fortune
I wonder if Shakespeare went to a Creative Writing Tutor. Maybe if he had done so he’d’ve written better plays.
You can make any abstraction become real when you exercise a bit of simple systems thinking:-
A bit remote from Mogg and his mob of fascists –
same principle though.
For all their toffee-nosed ‘education’,
the Power Possessing Millionaire Clique that rules us in dictator fashion
would understand none of this.
