Poetry, not politics
« on: June 26, 2016, 07:48:55 pm »

  Chesterton's poem "The Secret People" seems apposite at the moment.
I eat my peas with honey,
I've done it all my life;
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

I like that!  I shall have read more Chesterton!
No human society has ever functioned without models to capture, explain,disseminate,
persuade, sell, reinforce and analyse all kinds of ideas, values, concepts and situations.
