Critical thoughts of the left and right..All of us who think deeply must always be aware that those who are critical of society also experience our own blind spots and prejudices. I see too many people on the left who fail to recognise that.
However on the right there
is rarely such a problem. Who a couple of exceptions the right fm back
on terms such as common sense or shout snowflake when challenged. The
good old "libertarians" don't even try. They assume their own personality
is an illustration of freedom and confuse their narcissism with
ideology. The idea of a critical consideration of structure and society
is meaningless to them. Consequently the right looks back to what they
thought things were like rather than how things could be. Without
constant revolution within the psyche and self something inside of us
dies. Nietzche commented most critically upon the conservative...however
few on the left ever read him ..anyway we are nearly on the Fabian
Way.. enjoy your Friday.Naomi Klein is on Desert Island discs at 9...
