the
abandons an ally
once again
-
this is a long term policy
not just a
fad
eg
recall bush the 1st and
err..
iraqi rebels?

Was considering a bit recently.
That being that is always limited by how many frictions
they have.
aka limited by time
what might being fancy escaping to?

is it not
infinity rather than
remaining an attempt
to
totalise?

(
a reading of levinas..
)

oh and
yes
in case
the question
How can you claim
that
academic writing's invocation of others
to support your view
isn't just
a respectful
reference but
indeed
some kind of being
implemented?

Here's a bit of a morning irony
check
Elisabeth Camp's views on that ;)

the point is
that if
is
as
lewis gordon illustrates persuasively with some perspectives
youtube.com/watch?v=UABksVE5BT

then its abuse -
it's use for
intimidation
is
almost coupled with the very
definition
ie
if my ability to do stuff
touches
your ability
then
you need to deal with my legitimators - as well as
me.

..and yet, how true
we do need to do stuff
that
as lewis gordon
points
is beyond
our limited bodies.

Lets focus on when
a text brings some support
I say X
and
X
is something
that others
have noted
This text
is a fresh
angle.

In terms of
it seems to me
like
an invocation of
claim
legitimation.

Is it not that an unsuspected reader
will be confronted with having to
not just critique me
but also
all sorts of
other people - one way or another?

This is like a school yard
and you know
such and such kids shouldn't be
messed with
cause they
have
back up.

a morning note re power

lewis gordon says that is an ability to do stuff. Perhaps they mean by ability, a certain legitimacy, a proficiency, skill and talent - not sure.

However, i'd like to focus on a bit of a general reading of the notion - ability to do stuff
and
focus on a simple
case
of academic writing.

Know?
The one when an idea is
being linked
with
others who happened
to claim something
connectable to
one's own?

ok.. a curious idea..
a long childhood in species provides higher levels of intelligence?

guees this should be added to the list of stuff i don't get? ;)

However,
if
cnbc is correct in their theory
why
not test it?

why not present trump/bojo/InsertAuthoritarianNameHere

as politicians
rather than people
doing
strange and silly things in
politics?

afterall
Orban/trump/bojo etc - are politicians..

this idea of people against politicians - even when politicians advocate that - should also sound familiar to uk political cultured ears.

Bojo's "people" Vs Politicians aka parliament idea.

i think, there might be some traction in the idea.

Since indeed, trumps' rage is similar to that of the simple citizen realising they were deceived by political culture yet again.

Obviously he is playing that - however
i think it may be comprehend-able why
people
some people
feel he
expresses something they would.

this one is about winning support despite impeachment proceedings etc.

basically -
all politicians are corrupt, he is not acting like a politician.

cnbc.com/2019/10/04/heres-why-

note a quote from a 2015 text regarding truth telling in the media.
well
pre
post-truth was abuzz.

also
i have recently read on foxnews that they themselves describe their job
as to protect
people from
harmful news - stuff they might be disturbed by.
