  3. Maybe but people arent open to dialogue anymore about subtletys in language. No one has the patience. so is it worth trying to convince people? or is it better just to get rid of the phrase and find other ways?
  4. I think its important for everyone to remember that language has a history. the age seems to be marked by authoritarian powers who want to insinuate control over as much of public life as they can, and this usually begins with either abolishing or rewriting history (including "Make America Great Again," which invokes and at the same time erases a mythical Golden Age of American history). This includes attempts to make language static, which does a lot to close down discussion and particularly discussion which reminds us that things change. Look at the word "nigger." That word obviously has a huge emotional charge in America, but it has also been re-appropriated in the last few decades to point to something other than its pejorative meaning (the obvious example: in hip hop and gangsta rap "nigga" tends to mean a fellow black person or gang member or...you get the picture). As you all know I'm an old-fashioned political crank in this respect who is totally in favour of hitting people over the head with these kinds of things, so I support the phrase in the spirit of having dialogue about it.
  5. An interesting article on how the brain corrects words with letters misplaced: Can Our Brains Really Read Jumbled Words as Long as The First And Last Letters Are Correct? WWW.SCIENCEALERT.COM

  15. is there any reason I can't get in to POlitics & Religion? do I need to pay or apply for access?
  16. How do we distinguish them? everything is political but everything is language too right? anyway i think it's a good thing in the end. it's only a t-shirt and a slogan so I'm not sure it's worth all the ruffled feathers. ANd yes I realise people will whinge about freedom of speech and so forth but language isn't free and never has been! Oh there's also a Wikipedia article about this: It's OK to be white - Wikipedia EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG
  17. hahaha...the interpretative dance version of sitting down and writing letters! but seriously i think this is just one of those all toofamiliar computer glitches or someone just screwed up the data entry. still, pretty funny...especially the "discussion" bit 🤣
  18. So I read this article: Online store removes 'racist' t-shirt from site WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK An online store has removed t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “It’s okay to be white” after public backlash. The shirts were sold on Trade Me, a New Zealand auction website, by the manufacturer VJM about how an online vendor banned sales of a shirt with the "It's OK to be white" slogan on it. personally i think this whole thing is stupid - so far as I know the phrase wasn't racist until it was piked up by certain right-wing groups, so there's no reason to censor out of fear and a narrow understanding. BTW i'm posting this here because i think it's a matter of language primarily and not politics
  19. until

  21. So I was researching more Jung for my book revisions and ended up looking for a copy of the Jung-White Letters - correspondence between Carl Jung and a pastor by the name of Victor White. The book is either expensive or hard to find, but when I looked on bookfinder.com imagine my surprise when... WTH? Funniest thing about this is that if there actually were a "performance" of this I'd be tempted to go see it....😀
