The Somnolent Sage

Given that we all do depend upon the Sage of Ely to save us what can we do now?

Right now I am too tired to deal with the issue….but maybe later on his morning I will return to it. The need for the most radical of thinking, and reforms, has arrived. And let me promise you, this time it is impossible for anything to be the same again. That’s the one certainty we have got.

When the lynchpin of our entire governing system, the centre of wisdom, is unavailable, what is there to do but waily, waily?

And this is not entirely a joke. For, in a system that depends upon direction from an individual what can that system do in the absence? Which is why the internet was built with multiple paths. So that the taking out of any one path does not bring down the system. And why market systems are very much moire robust than planned systems – because the absence of the planner does not bring down the system.

Still, there’s Shakespeare to fall back upon. I shall do such things although I know not what….
