Mind Warps


Sometimes
the mind just wanders. A time when one should, by rights, be fast
asleep is the oddest of hours to embark on these travels.


Thoughts
of how the media exploits the grief of others for political ends,
ignoring the fact that helicopters had arived within the "golden
hour"; political manipulation by the unfree press which, at our expense,
promotes causes to which one may be diametrically opposed. There are
more things under the Sun than are dreamt of in their philosophy! When
was the last poll of consumers taken, to find out in which direction
the advertising budget of the supply chain should be spent.

I’ve
been suffering from a frequently recurring image of a capitalist ship,
navigated by neo-Thatcherite helmsmen, crashing upon the rocks. A
brain-washed populace screams out for the party that spawned the
helmsmen’s grasping idol to come to the rescue. It’s no longer a case
of better the devil you know but rather, bring back The Devil Incarnate!

This couldn’t happen in reality; could it?

    Malcolm, I know exactly what you are talking about. We had Reagan, and we are still suffering from all the damage that was done.
