How our democratic rights have been denied

PC it looms over us all like some colossus  - in a very well respected British newspaper today
a 'respected' journalist talks of  our Democracy being threatened by (you know who) the usual suspects Populism, Brexit Trump etc.

The journalist is almost pathological in how he skirts round immigration there is not one mention of it yet Immigration is the cause of this backlash of Trunp, Brexit, Merkel on the verge of going, Austira
right wing, Poland and Hungary defying the EU etc

The point here is that it is undemocratic to foist on the indigenous population an untold amount of refugees without consulting the indigenous population, the voter and that is where Democracy has been our 'politicians' as Sophocles '...they lurk under every stone'.

So why are the politicians doing this?  Leave aside the faux do gooding - they are doing it to bolster their votes it is a machiavellian or casuistical route to keeping power.

The issue divides the US (perilously so) and Europe.

Recycling - the pragmatist’s alchemy,

Image result for RECYCLE

Indeed we might think of the relations between art and politics in Mallarmé’s “Tailhade” as an instance of Divagations’ dynamic and ongoing life/art recycling project—recycling being the pragmatist’s alchemy, and Mallarmé being more of a pragmatist than many of us have allowed. (McGuiness, 2009, 824)

Does everything have to end up a book?

Le monde est fait pour aboutir à un beau livre ‘Everything in the world exists to end up in a book’ (Mallarmé, 1945, 872). Mallarmé’s sentence is quoted by defiant bibliophiles, inhabitants of ivory towers, proponents of aestheticism, and many more—sometimes in disagreement.

What Mallarmé makes of the dangerous, messy, hubristic and often contradictory relations between art and everyday life is something unique, as exemplified in his article on Tailhade where life’s broken pieces are recycled and reconfigured into a powerfully suggestive defense of poetry.

The Authoritarian Personality

he Authoritarian Personality had a tremendous influence on and other liberal intellectuals, because it showed them how to conduct political criticism in psychiatric categories,

 to make those categories bear the weight of political criticism. This procedure excused them from the difficult work of judgment and argumentation. Instead of arguing with opponents, they simply dismissed them on psychiatric grounds.

It is reasonable to ask what reason originated from.

 Image result for be reasonable do it my wayWe are post Enlightenment and reason, as some argue  is a tenet of the Enlightenment.

They would argue that reason or common are power power tools  l

Like when people say you are not being reasonable this is a power tool.

And how did reason originate, surely to come into existance it had to define itself against another reason, whose truth and identity was also assigned by reason, thus giving reason the false appearing of originating from itself.  Which is the causa sui argument  (it orignated from itself)

The conceptual pedantry of locality

We have a conceptual pedantry of locality.Your outside is the physicalness of you, and the inside is your consciousness we assume everything has a 'here' and a ‘there’

STOP! SPACE ENDS HERE!   ergo here and there although useful to us in a utilitarian way
is none the less a pedantic use of locality

Is your personality a mask.

With the ancient Greeks identity, idem, meant the same as ‘personality’; it had a dramatic meaning – it meant the mask‟....and we wear this mask wherever you go as you present yourselves to „ourselves‟ and to others. It reflects yourself concept - what you seek to maintain about yourselves

When there wasn't 's consciousness only Gods and Godesses

In The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, psychologist Julian Jaynes uses the Iliad as a major piece of evidence for his theory of Bicameralism, which posits that until about the time described in the Iliad, humans had a much different mentality than present day humans. 

He says that humans during that time were lacking what we today call consciousness. He suggests that humans heard and obeyed commands from what they identified as gods, until the change in human mentality that incorporated the motivating force into the conscious self. He points out that almost every action in the Iliad is directed, caused, or influenced by a god, and that earlier translations show an astonishing lack of words suggesting thought, planning, or introspection. Those that do appear, he argues, are misinterpretations made by translators imposing a modern mentality on the characters

Homer interprets the world at this time by using the passion and emotion of the gods to be determining factors of what happens on the human level

Counter intuitive QuantuM Theory of being in 2 places at the SAME TIME

it is interesting that things on a very small scale behave like nothing that you have any direct experience about… things that are roughly 10,000,000,000 times smaller than a typical human being, 
can be for instance in two places at the same time

and they don’t behave like billiard balls, or like anything that you have ever seen. But everything including you and I are made up of these minute things…Duplicated subjects in frame

Advertising what it its end message? (apart from profit)

 Image result for advertisingIn looking at advertising...what (apart from money and profit) undergirds it?

...what is the teleology (end message) in the narrative they concoct, is their any epistemological (actual knowledge) in their advertising slogans, 

Defined narrowly, epistemology is the study of knowledge and justified belief. As the study of knowledge, epistemology is concerned with the following questions: What are the necessary and sufficient conditions of knowledge? What are its sources? What is its structure, and what are its limits?
