MIRROR STUDIES AND THE COMMON DENOMINATOR

And logic-for me, anyway-cannot rule out a triangle also of bad faith.

The imposition by the Egyptian military of the responsibility of constitutional reform on the Morsi government-the very imposition of the responsibility of thereby restraining itself-would seem to me to have been the final objective, initially, of the military’s move of some weeks ago.

The examples, from the Muslim world itself-Turkey, Algeria-Morocco, to some extent-and even certain aspects of Iranian governance-seem to me to be enough to plausibly propose that while we are all under Mohamed, so to speak and as part of Egyptian society and culture, we shall never be in a technical sense a theocracy.

We (the army) will not allow this to happen-and your (Morsi’s) responsibility is to reform the Egyptian constitution-you are the democratically elected executive power-so that this never becomes a legal possibility of contemplation.

And you will not leave the military facilities in which you find yourself until you have done this; you are free to summon and consult with all social and political sectors of society-as you should-but your restitution as the legitimate governing power of the country depends on this constitutional reform, on your very act of reform and restraint of yourself.

Then shall you return once again to all the powers and functions that democratically and constitutionally correspond to you as government.

And we (the army) are to be seen as guardians, as the ultimate guarantors of the constitutional order of Egypt.

And the whole of Egyptian society will easily understand this.

BEGIN NOW

A good faith model of governance such as this outlined, more or less, above presupposes the simple impossibility of good faith itself.

This I understood-as my stomach dropped-when I beheld an Egyptian general giving a speech to the world with his Ray Ban or Carrera sunglasses still covering his eyes, soon after the military suppression of the Morsi government.

And I know, despite what is reported as a sour state of relations between Egypt and the US, that the Pentagon is still tied by billions of dollars to the Egyptian military-and probably in terms of very personal connections between officers of both military structures.

How could, then, the days go by with no decisive action taken in any sense by the Egyptian military-how could, then, the US not be heard until finally the bodies started piling up after what up until then were mock civil war lines that had been allowed to be drawn in the form of social rift as protest?

How could this have been allowed to happen under apparently no oversight or direction of any kind?

Follow the triangle.

Follow the bad faith.

What other explanation could there be?

And the apparent bad faith of one point of the triangle-internally and in regards to its own civilian population-is also the nature of the union of all points of the triangle, internally, as well, and in regards to its own respective civilian populations.

That’s how this could have happened.

But(t) I have had enough.

Enough of your bad faith and lack of restraint.

I bring-as you now understand-oversight.

And I will impose just this on you:

Your own act of reform and self-restraint.

Initial requisite required of you:

Your good faith

NOW FOR THE ADULT VERSION (PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED):

DEAD AREAS OF PLANET EARTH AND THE VIABILITY OF A LOGIC OF ABSENCE

BEGIN NOW

-Specific areas of North America

-Areas of Japan

-Most of Europe

-Rural areas, generally through out the world

-Especially of the interior, away from coastal areas

-General rule (that I follow, anyway): areas that are densely populated, to begin with, retain longer an atmosphere of general human vitality as daily and routine strife-of hustle and bustle– as life than officially less densely populated regions.

(I am talking, of course, of human demographics and not about any other species.)

What?

It’s not the end of world or anything.

I mean it is-but it isn’t.

You’re reading this, yes?

Or not:
