to truly understand the significance of TIME.
A Labour M.P. stood up in the Houses of Parliament yesterday and started to preach to the conservative Tory benches opposite, politically pontificating about how the problems of the financial market were far more complex than the Tories understood and how THEY the Tories should understand that the ever evolving nature of the economic problems could best be described by “chaos theory”.
The member of parliament in question then went on to state that
Labour had a better grasp of what to do than the Tory opposition.
ONLY time will tell.
Most of those people who voted Mr. Blair into power, as leader of the party of
NEW LABOUR and the middle way, to the tune of “things can only get better”,
truly believed that a NEW ORDER ENVIRONMENT would -
FULLY acknowledge the existence of “chaos theory” in the running of the economy.
Alas the man in charge of the purse strings spent the last 11 years preparing to
fully implement the OLD LABOUR policies which the electorate didn’t vote for !
In the context of those who WILL have to pay for ALL of THIS, our children and their children’s children, and the children within ALL of US adults, what better way for us all to be introduced to the concept of philosophy than by Christopher Falzon’s Philosophy GOES TO THE MOVIES. We could then appreciate fully what John Elbert has long told us about the workings of the mind, in preparation for an appropriately applicable understanding of how important the acknowledgement of the concepts of Spiral Dynamics Integral are, to the survival of LIFE on EARTH.
It was Clare Graves who said in 1974 … that a version of George Orwell’s 1984, embodied in tyrannical, manipulative government with glossed over communitarian overtones, was a distinct possibility as a result of the playing out of the Humpty Dumpty effect.
Despite the fact that ALL Governments since Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher have completely neglected their responsibilities, in regard to oversight and regulation of the financial services industry, the financial chaos which ALL taxpayers now face IS less to do with scientific analogies than a common sense understanding of the financial chaos which has ensued as a result of self-sophistication, arrogance and greed. It would seem that this common sense of the people in cutting back everywhere possible is not being mirrored by the majority of the political establishment or banking elite. As I have posted elsewhere, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION was NOT a social but a political one.
The one that the British have endured for the last decade or more, was in the same vain more political than social, perhaps "the times are a changing", such that the NEW OBAMA administration will at least establish a BALANCE betwixt the political and the social, en-route to a revived version of democracy when the politicians will truly BE at the BEHEST of the people.
The film DÉJÀ VU was dedicated to the strength and enduring spirit of the people of New Orleans. Let us ALL awake and smell the lavender, smell the lavender and awaken to the strength and enduring spirit of ALL the people of the planet.
AS Jaron Lanier has said in his book - YOU ARE NOT A GADGET -
WE have to think about the digital layers we are laying down now in order
to benefit future generations. WE should be optimistic that civilization will
survive this challenging century, and put some effort into creating the
best possible world for those who will inherit our efforts.
for today the 13th VALENTINES day of the 21st century
