In reply to people don't want to know..., posted by alexandra_k on December 28, 2016, at 22:45:14

I found this book in the public library. i can't remember what it is called. i didn't read much of it. something something about 'i have 3 dollars in my pocket'. a novel. written by a melbourne lawyer. probably a misquote:

in order to be successful in life i don't need to pursue success. all i need is for my success to be tied to the failure of people who's failure is inevitable.

i think that is what nz society runs on. why there is so much in the way of incompetence in command.

if you play your cards right all you gotta do is nod and smile and play dumb and bide your time.

i really wish this wasn't the case. philosophy taught me... to find controvery and dispute in things. but taking a 'real world' step back... so much is beyond controvery. so fairly obviously to everyone better than the way things are at present. but we don't even seem able to effect much in the way of any of that...
