Get ready to listen folks

In this context I am also now framing my thinking on what I am calling a post-coronavirus consensus (PCC). Once this crisis is over we will need a new lens through which to view the world so that we can properly understand what we need to do. Of course, millions of others will also need to be engaged in this process.

Presumably our involvement will be as listeners, recipients.

  1. “properly understand what we need to do…”

    The words of someone who wants to boss us about. Get back to your model trains and your porn shoots, Dickie

  2. Don’t worry Diogenes, after this is all over and we return to some semblance of normality Herr Oberst Kartoffel’s blogposts will also return to the usual “no one is listening to MEEEEE!!” type whining.

  3. Anyone remember the Artilleryman from War of the World?

    “You see, how I mean to live is underground. I’ve been thinking about the drains. Of course those who don’t know drains think horrible things; but under this London are miles and miles—hundreds of miles—and a few days rain and London empty will leave them sweet and clean. The main drains are big enough and airy enough for anyone. Then there’s cellars, vaults, stores, from which bolting passages may be made to the drains. And the railway tunnels and subways. Eh? You begin to see? And we form a band—able-bodied, clean-minded men. We’re not going to pick up any rubbish that drifts in. Weaklings go out again.”

    I suspect PCC will surprise us all by being a sloppy and self-contradictory amalgamation of the last decade and a half of Spud’s various obsessions. He claims that the coronavirus is going to change everything… but we have yet to see it change his thinking on any given subject.

  5. Will a Fair Tax Mark for everyone be part of the consensus? Or a courageous state? Or country by country reporting? Place your bets. I think I could almost write it now myself.
