The end of the fashion, by Globetrotter
Britain has offered us a peculiar way of coping with modernity. Because it was an Island, Britain managed to reconcile modernity with tradition in a very implosive way. When the Stuarts were restored, the only way of avoiding a Revolution was to decree libertinage at a national scale, as the plays of Wicherley depict. This added to the bloodshed of Cromwell times, made up of Britain the home of hipocrisy, the cult of Terror and a dislexya we admired as "very british", until we found out it was raw pragmatism and we were on the way.
The speech of Tony/Chery Blair yesterday was but an example. As if he was standing in a Theme-Park, Blair is said to have wooed Syria an Iran. It is not true. He receeded to the bastion waving the american flag, his most valued asset. He flags now the "Whole Middle East', instead of the "Grand' Middle East, but, in the end, everything boils down to the Middle-East. So many grand designs, the demagoguery of fixing the clock's mechanism in History and, after all, the Middle-East is very simple, as he stated. Yes, it is. Instead of a brawl every day in Gaza, we have a carnage, every hour, in Iraq. Long after the lies have been unveiled, their soundtrack reverberates as an echo.
These Chery-Blairs should be hold responsible and also denazifyed, on how their demagoguery in buying the Trade-Unions' leaders with good standards of living would inevitably push Britain to a colonial adventure. It was written by marxists such as Immanuel Wallerstein that they should do that or die with Communism, so, they should pantomine they were capitalists. And they did it so well that they went as far as pretending to be imperialists so that there could be a role to social climbers when the world was ebbing back again to the Nation-State. The conservatives let him play, as following the principle: if you cannot do it yourself, let other do it for you. They're also full of social climbers.
But Blair was not a liar. He was just a gypsy seller. He wanted, really to keep the establishment of Labour and their priviliged ones. The only virtue of a socialist is the one of obbeying the doctrine. And Blair did it. Behind, Chery Blair kept her biological plan: motherhood and professional success. How useful is to be a judge in England when her boyish husband is juggling with handgrenades and their best-man, Peter Mandelson cannot even live his own gaiety in a world which is returning to the traditional ways! Yes, a determined social climber may even use a boy as prime-Minister, to care only about her own, egoistical interests. How Britain managed to produce this Chery Blair was not Hipocrisy but the Rocky Horror Show.
