rEv needs to deconstruct his narrative... :tea:
It's been deconstructed before he was even born. The narrative is said to have been dubbed Narrabeen in the first half of the 19th century, because it is an early instance of fake news.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Correlation is not causation Rum. You stopped being arty because you slacked off, not because you're an atheist - unless you specialised in religious art of course, in which case I apologise, but you can still combine the two...

I have little interest in cultural history anymore. My wife was in touch with academics for some time and I met people studying Finns in America. Lutheran churches kept up the language. Workers kept up socialist ideas in Newspapers. Gus Hall, major union and socialist leader, was a Finn. Then there were temperance people. The only place these people with their ”halls” and churches could come together was in sports events. More track and field than team sports. Now...yawn...it’s all boring to read.

I’ve been at least an agnostic since age 15, so it was really only the language and the immigrants that interested me for a while.

Im not sure if it was cause and effect, correlation or just slowly shaking off the bullshit. It all happened over a relatively few years. Besides never even thinking about matters I would have thought of a ‘spiritual’ in some way any more, I have developed a nose for stuff that is stated as fact or real without any foundation. It’s a bit like x-ray vision. :shock:

Engineers should run this fucking world. First thing we'll do is put all you liberal arts weenies in shop class, teach you to use a drill press and table saw, sharpen a plane blade, and maybe (for the advanced students), change a fucking tire. Except in the UK, where you'll change a tyre.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

That shit is useless. Nobody can start a revolution with a drill press, table saw and plane. What the hell are you thinking?

It can if you drill through politician's heads. And everybody needs to know how to change a tire (or a tyre).

Bullshit. You can get some dumb Neanderthal to change it for you. You don't usually even have to pay much for it.

Plus, tires are dirty. my fidget spinner is a light colour, and I don't want to muck it up.

Hahaa. I can do all of that. Just used a compound mitre saw yesterday to cut and bevel a couple of wooden pieces. Having ordered some mounts for two of my monitors, which have no VESA mounting holes, they'll enable me to attach them to the arms without having to use those awful adaptors. This liberal arts weenie also knows how to shoot rifles, including fully automatic ones, and service a truck.

Without having some grunts to pour concrete for you, how do you expect your walls to ever get built?

At least they work cheaper than scientists.
