Michel Foucault warned us
« on: February 15, 2017, 04:36:34 PM »
If I'm not wrong, in his book "Discipline and Punish", Michel Foucault wrote something like this (but in French):
"When private affairs become public, public affairs become private."
When we focus on irrelevant private issues and behaviors, as in Show Business "news" and gossips, then important public affairs get out of sight, becoming obscure, private, secret. It is the Ninja strategy to invisibility, and people's imbecility makes it work.
