Situation Desperate But Not Serious [Mar. 8th, 2017|11:52 am]
Tony Grist
Does Trump- with his assertions that his office's communications were hacked in the closing stages of the presidential campaign-  realise he actually won the election- and isn't still running against Obama? Is all the noise he's making just the way he is or a cunning strategy to confuse and bedazzle his enemies (which at this stage of the proceedings means just about everybody in the world apart from his inner circle).

Following the revelations from Tuam I find myself wondering (as I often have before) why the Catholic Church doesn't just crawl away into a corner and die of shame- but then I remind myself that power elites just don't do that- not ever, nohow.

Still, they managed well on the whole, I'd say.

And no, I haven't been following the Colston thing, though I've been unable to avoid the Rhodes issue in many academic institutions.

I generally like explorations of communal memory. Berlin has some wonderful museums with that focus.

There's a balance to be struck between memory and denial. Rhodes and Colston are historical facts; we may not want to celebrate them but it would be irresponsible to wipe them from the record.
