I received this recently from someone with whom I’m unfamiliar but their email contains a treasure trove of information which, in the spirit of co-creative learning, is shared for others to sift, analyse and reshare if they choose.
I’ve copied and pasted the email but have had to do quite a lot of reformatting of links etc. If any don’t work, please let me know. clive [AT] clivemenzies.co.uk
Weaponizing the language closes the doors of human perception. Political correctness is only one such example. Today philosophers and theologians [religio-philosophers], scientists and legal theorists; social, cultural, political, economic, and behavioral theorists [would be philosopher-kings and academicians] too – all conspire to enslave the mind and to govern human action in the name of humanity… or science… and community. These priests of the mind speak of the precautionary principle, then they speak of noblesse oblige, all the while citing their erudition and mere attempts to do good by others. They insist it is their responsibility to protect us… from ourselves.
