OUR FIRST WEEK OF RATIONAL ANIMAL TALES: Digest of last week's reports!

MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 2020

All this week, A Very Stable Dumbness:
Last week, we started a lengthy series of reports which will lead us all the way back to Lord Russell and the later Wittgenstein, even to the set of all sets not members of themselves.

More precisely, we started our Rational Animal Tales—reports about the way our species, the famous rational animal, ended up suffering the global conflagration which future experts are already glumly describing as Mister Trump's War.

In the next few weeks, we'll survey a few ongoing failures by members of our floundering species. From there, it's on to Lord Russell and his famous set of all sets!

Last week, our first set of reports concerned a peculiar manifestation from the realm of popular culture. Our reports ran under that generic heading, Rational Animal Tales:
Rational Animal Tales—Week One
Monday, January 13: Atticus Finch complicit in murder! Strong hints of Woke Gone Wild!

Tuesday, January 14: Sorkin discerns the real Atticus Finch! #InterrogationSoDumb.

Wednesday, January 15:
It can get very dumb at the top of the heap. The Summer of '35!

Thursday, January 16: Atticus said to [HEART] Bob Ewell—and he calls to mind Donald J. Trump!

Friday, January 17: West Wing enables The Death of the West. The Autumn of '99!
This week, we'll be exploring A Very Stable Dumbness—the persistent, semi-comical dumbness on display at the New York Times. For our first report in this series, you can just click here.

After a few more weeks, we'll reach our ultimate destination. We'll issue a series of reports, In the Lair of the Rational Animal!

Starting with our own experiences in Professor Nozick's Phil 3 course, we'll explore what the logicians were doing in the hundred-plus years before the Trumpism crept, then took hold.

For the record, it's too late for any of this to matter. It's too late to expect to find a way out of our current mess. Those Iowa polls can't help us now. Neither will all those putative "plans." Nor will the mugging and clowning.

Or at least, so we're told by the future experts who are now directing our work. They inform us through the peculiar nocturnal submissions the haters refer to as dreams.

Though she isn't a fully credentialed expert, Cassandra is often there. It's all over now but the anthropology, or so these glum scholars have said.

Full disclosure: All reports are prepared in consultation with Future Anthropologists Huddled in Caves, a fully-credentialed, award-winning group of disconsolate future scholars.

    What mess, dear Bob? Cheer up, things are moving in the right direction.

    If (god willing) our beloved president is re-elected, your zombie cult, with all its nytimes wapos and cnns, with its pelosis and shiffs, will not not survive it. Definitely. And then, from this point, from this extremely low point, things can only get better, dear Bob.

    Is some non-zero percentage of the group female?

  3. We got Trump because the Republicans ignored the Tea Party in their midst. That made them mad.

    ReplyDelete
  4. By taking the phrase "A Very Stable Dumbness" and turning it around to apply to the NY Times, Somerby undercuts the message of "A Very Stable Genius," which is that Trump is dumb as a rock but a lot more dangerous. Compared to Trump, the NY Times is certainly full of geniuses (in the guise of hard-working kids with Ivy League educations).

    Notice how Somerby tries to remove the sting of those words by applying them to something liberal don't loathe.

    By why is Somerby once again today trying to help Trump and carrying water for conservatives?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Surely Somerby will eventually make it crystal clear why Russell’s paradox is the Focal Point of Western History leading to the Demise of Liberalism.

    I’m not holding my breath, though.

    A very Lincolnesque take, with a dash of MLK thrown in.

  18. avant que mon mari ne revienne vers moi après 3 mois de séparation, j'ai beaucoup pleuré et ma vie était misérable, les choses n'allaient pas bien à mes yeux je ne pouvais pas me concentrer, tout ce à quoi je pensais, c'est que si je pouvais récupérer mon mari, cette pensée de le récupérer, me fait chercher des solutions partout, même sur Internet après avoir cherché des solutions en ligne, un jour fidèle j'ai vu le contact du Dr AFRID Spell Temple, que j'ai contacté et leur ai dit mes problèmes, ils ont demandé mes coordonnées, que je résume, après quelques heures, j'ai reçu un message indiquant que votre lancement de sort est gratuit, mais je serai responsable des objets nécessaires pour le sort, après que les objets aient été achetés et reçus par le lanceur de sorts, dans les 7 heures, il m'envoie un message WhatsApp qu'il a jeté le sort et m'a demandé d'attendre 48 heures.
    heureusement, je n'ai pas changé mon numéro de portable, mais je pensais que mon mari a supprimé le numéro qu'il pouvait utiliser pour me joindre, j'ai supprimé son numéro de mon téléphone, les différends que nous avons eu qui ont conduit à la séparation étaient horribles, je n'ai jamais pensé nous pourrions être à nouveau ensemble, sinon avec l'aide de ce grand lanceur de sorts, un jour j'ai vu un message sur mon téléphone quand je me suis réveillé c'était tôt le matin le message contenait des excuses, que je devrais lui pardonner tout ce qu'il a fait à moi je ne sais pas qui a envoyé un tel message parce que le numéro me semble étrange alors je rappelle l'expéditeur et voici la voix de la personne que j'ai entendue était la voix de mon mari j'étais en colère au début parce que je ne le fais pas Je veux qu'il sache qu'il m'a manqué après qu'il s'est excusé et a dit qu'il avait promis d'être un homme meilleur cette fois et a également dit qu'il ne me laissera jamais pleurer, je ne le crois jamais, depuis qu'il est revenu, j'ai remarqué quelque chose que mon mari a beaucoup changé il est maintenant le mari de rêve dont je rêve toujours, je veux juste remercier Dieu et le véritable lanceur de sorts avec lequel il m'a connecté, en ce moment je peux dire que tous mes problèmes sont terminés le sourire a toujours été sur mon visage je ne peux pas vous remercier assez monsieur, c'est ainsi que j'ai retrouvé l'amour de ma vie, nous sommes tous les deux heureux ensemble merci au Dr AFRID Que Dieu vous bénisse, pour la relation conseille atteindre le lanceur de sorts pour l'assistant Via, drafridherbalhome11@gmail.com
