T.S.Eliot Foreshadows Foucault

Portrait of T.S. Eliot by Windham Lewis



Two Choruses from The Rock

The endless cycle of idea and action,
Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word. p. 81

All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,
All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to GOD,
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

Michel Foucault



The Method of Genealogy of Knowledge
Applied and Extended
From Nietzsche


"Information is not knowledge.
Knowledge is not knowing.

Knowledge is made for cutting."



I am struck by the resonance of their images for me.

We are drowning  in information. How long can we stand to go on listening to a political DISCOURSE that spits info out at us like a fire hydrant.That's what "mansplaining" is!

Without any knowledge and absolutely without any KNOWING.

TRUMPS TRAP - Trumps Wall Getting Stone Walled!

Fast Food for Congressional Critters to Debate his Wall
Or is it TRUMPS TRICK

HEADS HE WINS, TAILS HE DOESN'T LOSE

HEADS THEY LOSE, TAILS THEY DONT WIN

IT'S CALLED A CATCH-22 REMEMBER


IF HE GETS HIS WALL, HE WINS. IF HE DOESN'T HE GETS TO MAKE FOOLS OF HOW THEY ARE STONE-WALLING HIM AND HE WILL DO A TRUMAN AND RUN AGAINST CONGRESS AND THROW THEM OUT OF OFFICE

So he begins with a lunch of Fast food. 
It is a very funny INSULT! 
Did he really do this?

Trump set the trap, closed the door by shutting down the gummint. Then he padlocked it by instituting a danger shutdown involving DANGER to the American people. Oh my! All they have said so far is that he is behaving improperly. You know how parents tell you you are being impolite when you say the truth directly and embarrass them. That. They have no other DISCOURSE but their everyday Political Discourse and still dont realize they are in it. Well ya know, the fish doesn't get water either until she is out of it.

Trump refuses to play ball on their playing field of Political Discourse and they cannot follow him and mirror him. Alexandria Ocasio - Cortez does though. She is the woman Trump has been waiting for all his life. She is his biggest challenge. She mirrors him and BEATS him! She makes a statement with her clothes, her hair, her makeup down to her finger nails. She is on his wavelength and one ups him on the way. Poor Melania couldn't even get the message on her jacket right then flubbed her explanation. Oh well, she is beautiful and that takes a lot of time to remain well preserved as you age. And you know how Trump throws the old ones under the bus. 

Congress closed the gummint on Clinton and he waited until they felt the pressure and gave in.

Trump has flipped it. Inverted it and done it himself to put them in a Catch-22. 


Now the neo-liberals and the neo-cons are cooperating with each other against Trump. What we knew all along was really one playing good cop/bad cop

is now visible!

Trump's Trap of demanding his wall is a trick of strategy waylaying Washington D.C. political critters. The trap was open, they walked in, Trump shut the door and locked it with his shutting down the government. Congress did this to Clinton and he bluffed them and won. It has been threatened but this is the first time a sitting prez did it. I think anyway. Be careful what you do as it can be inverted and turned against you. Now the precedent has been set for a president to close up shop. Gulp.


U Cant See Anyone But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
When people noticed the monochromatic look, Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, writing, "I wore all-white today to honor the women who paved the path before me, and for all the women yet to come. From suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the mothers of the movement."


And there's more. Her red lipstick, fingernails and gold hoop earrings like
 SONIA SOTOMAYOR!

HER BRAIDS

INSTAGRAM!

And her suit is not a knockoff of a Hillary suit. Makes Hillary now look old timey too even though she is not here. 
She is more here by being absent.


Trump loves her I bet. AOC I mean. 
She is his biggest challenge as she knows his game and plays it better.



Cortez is doing PROTEST. 
This is
PERFORMANCE ART FOLKS.
This is one way to do it. Copy it and it will get boring.
