39: Idle Moments: Literary Loafers through the Ages and Pages

In the spirit of Plato's Symposium, the Slightly Foxed team enter into lively dialogue with two distinguished magazine editors, Tom Hodgkinson of the Idler and Harry Mount of the Oldie, and learn lessons from notable loafers in literature. We begin with Doctor Johnson, an icon of indolence who wrote an essay called ‘The Idler' and liked time to ponder; this lazy lexicographer claimed his dictionary would take three years to write when in fact it would take nine . . . The wisdom-loving philosophers of Ancient Greece made a case for carving out leisure time, while the anchorite Julian of Norwich favoured a life of seclusion in which ‘all shall be well'. At the age of thirty-eight Michel de Montaigne retired to a grand book-filled chateau to test out ideas in essays, while George Orwell wrote book reviews in hungover misery. Izaak Walton found contemplation in The Compleat Angler and Jerome K. Jerome found humour in Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, while the autodidactic Mitford sisters sought wild freedom. We enjoy a leisurely spell with loungers in fiction, visiting Lady Bertram and her pug in Mansfield Park, taking to Lady Diana Cooper's bed in A Handful of Dust, retreating to Aunt Ada Doom's room in Cold Comfort Farm, settling into the quiet comfort of Mycroft Holmes's Diogenes Club and meeting Thomas Love Peacock's Honourable Mr Listless along the way. And, to finish, there are the usual wide-ranging reading recommendations for when you have an idle moment.

Basta acessar o link e aplicar o cupom CAFEBRASIL   George Orwell descreveu em sua obra-prima, 1984, um mundo dividido em três grandes blocos: a Oceania, a Lestásia e a Eurásia. Na Oceania, composta pelas Américas, Inglaterra, Sul da África e Austrália, o idioma falado pelos cidadãos era o inglês. Mas todos os documentos eram escritos em "novilíngua", o idioma oficial do Partido. O conceito da novilíngua baseia-se na noção de que, no processo de pensar, traduzimos os pensamentos em palavras, manipulando-as num diálogo interno. Quando surge um tema complexo e novo, inventamos novas palavras ou adaptamos antigas, de forma a enriquecer nossa capacidade de dialogar mentalmente. Portanto, quanto mais rico nosso vocabulário, maior a capacidade de fazer comparações mentais sutis. E tirar ricas conclusões. Para os criadores da novilíngua, se alguma coisa não pode ser expressa numa palavra, fica mais difícil de pensá-la. Portanto, a proposta era reduzir o vocabulário para diminuir a capacidade dos indivíduos de desenvolver pensamentos que conflitassem com os interesses do governo. E a cada nova edição do dicionário da novilíngua, menos vocábulos estavam presentes. No livro de Orwell, o Partido esperava que até 2050 a novilíngua substituísse o inglês como idioma corrente. A novilingua promovia o "duplipensar", um estado mental em que dois pensamentos excludentes entre si conseguem coexistir. Vivemos numa sociedade onde nenhum valor é mais importante que a troca de nosso dinheiro (ou poder) por algo que alguém quer nos vender. Seja um saco de arroz, uma religião ou um político. Nesse ambiente competitivo, para o vendedor, se seus argumentos são verdadeiros ou não, não têm importância, contanto que sejamos persuadidos. E uma das armas principais para nos convencer é exatamente a novilíngua e o duplipensar, que saltaram da ficção de Orwell para a realidade. Hoje em dia, como nunca antes neste país, malabarismos linguísticos fazem com que um sim signifique não. E pouca gente percebe. É assim que se abre caminho para um programa de proteção aos direitos humanos que cassa direitos humanos. Ou um chamado Comitê da verdade que só quer a verdade de um lado. Ou o caixa dois transformado em recursos não contabilizados. Ou uma promoção que custa mais caro. Ou o corrupto que é apresentado como grande político ou paladino da moralidade. E assim por diante. O próprio George Orwell escreveu: "Se as idéias corrompem a língua, a língua também corrompe as idéias." Por isso enriquecer o vocabulário não serve só para falar bonito. Serve para pensar direito.   No Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmJXZ9n9vuo     Gostou? De onde veio este, tem muito, mas muito mais. Acesse http://mundocafebrasil.com

CJ Walley is stirring up quite a revolution. "Power to the People," Garvin fists the air, spurred on by 'Citizen Smith' starring Robert Lindsey as Wolfie Smith in the old British TV series from the seventies. "More like Winston Smith from George Orwell's 1984," George remarks. But CJ Walley's revolution is in screenwriting, ramping up the action with indie writers trying to get a break. "What's the problem?" Thinking that the wonderfully written script will find its own way to success. Nope, not on your nelly. That is where the writers need to think outside the box and find their passion for success. It's a brutal world out there. You can't just hide under the television scribbling away, hiding from the Thought Police.

China, un mundo sin covid

La ContraCrónica

China, el lugar en el que surgió el SARS-CoV 2 hace ya dos años persevera en su política de covid cero. Al menos sobre el papel consiguió erradicar casi por completo el contagio de la enfermedad desde mediado el año 2020 a través de restricciones draconianas, aislamientos ante cualquier brote, cierre de fronteras y control directo de la población mediante test, tomas de temperatura. La obsesión del Gobierno ha llegado a tal extremo que contagiarse de covid constituye un auténtico estigma social con el que nadie quiere cargar. El país, poblado por 1.400 millones de personas, hasta la fecha sólo declara 100.000 casos y 4.600 fallecidos desde que comenzó la pandemia. Un número insignificante si lo ponemos en contexto con su población. En Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, con 330 millones de habitantes, una cuarta parte de la de China, se han declarado 52 millones de casos y 830.000 muertes. Algo similar sucede en Europa o en Hispanoamérica, el número de gente que ha pasado la enfermedad es muy alto aunque, gracias a las vacunas, la tasa de fallecimientos ha caído en picado a lo largo del segundo semestre de este año. Entre las vacunas y la seroprevalencia los Gobiernos de casi todo el mundo esperan que en los próximos meses se estabilice la situación con la covid ya convertida en una enfermedad endémica y seguramente estacional. Nada de eso se plantean hacer en China. Con la irrupción de la variante ómicron en Sudáfrica hace dos meses el Gobierno chino está redoblado sus esfuerzos para impedir que entre en el país y que, si finalmente lo hace (algo altamente probable), no se transmita entre la población. El resultado final de este empeño por erradicar un virus tan contagioso pero, al tiempo, con una letalidad tan baja, ha alumbrado una sociedad distópica. No tenemos, además, apenas gente que nos lo cuente porque conseguir un visado para entrar en China es francamente complicado y los chinos tienen problemas para renovar su pasaporte. El corresponsal de The Economist en Pekín, David Rennie, ha escrito una crónica desde allí que permite hacernos una idea de como los chinos confían eliminar por completo el virus mediante una serie de normas de control social que asombrarían al mismísimo George Orwell.

Who was Eric Arthur Blair, better known by his pen name “George Orwell?” On today's episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we explore the life and work of an author who died at the age of 46 but whose writings — namely “Animal Farm” and “1984” — still help to shape our understanding of the freedoms of speech and conscience. Joining us for the discussion is the author of Orwell's authorized biography, Indiana State University professor Michael Shelden. Shelden's biography of Orwell was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1992. www.sotospeakpodcast.com Follow us on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/freespeechtalk Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sotospeakpodcast Email us: sotospeak@thefire.org

George Orwell wrote this political satire in the form of a fable in 1945, giving it the title Animal Farm. The book shocked the world, fueling conflicts between capitalism in the USA and the socialism of the Soviet Union. The story triggered different responses from the two opposing ideologies. In the capitalist countries of the West, the work was warmly received. People believed it was an objective evaluation of a socialist country and told the truth about its living conditions. Western societies embraced the story, and its popularity grew. Animal Farm was translated into more than a dozen languages, adapted for children, illustrated and turned into animated movies. Orwell himself became a spokesperson and arbiter of his time, with influential moral views and a linguistic style that influenced the works of many western novelists and playwrights of the 1950s and 60s.

The English novelist Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966) was regarded by many as the most brilliant satirical novelist of his time. A self-proclaimed curmudgeon, for whom the Conservative Party was not conservative enough, Waugh converted to Catholicism in his twenties and never looked back. He resisted change in all areas of life, expressing the opinion that he wished he had been born two or three centuries earlier. At his best, he was darkly funny, using his misanthropy like a bright light to illuminate cracks and flaws in society's foundations, and using his pointed wit to skewer anyone and everyone he encountered, including himself. At his worst, he was a crazy quilt of what George Orwell called "untenable opinions," with all the racism and anti-semitism one might expect from a self-satisfied man of his era. In this episode, Jacke is joined by author Phil Klay to discuss Waugh's religion, military background, and his novel A Handful of Dust in particular. The two also discuss Klay's award-winning fiction, his writing process, what it means to be a Catholic writer in Waugh's time and our own, and the new podcast American Veteran: Unforgettable Stories, which Klay hosts. PHIL KLAY is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. His short story collection Redeployment won the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction and was selected as one of the 10 Best Books of 2014 by The New York Times.

Er et hus det samme som et hjem? Det er et av spørsmålene Deborah Levy utforsker i sin ferske bok Real Estate, den tredje og siste i hennes serie «levende selvbiografier» – det vil si selvbiografier som skal skrives mens livet stormer, og ikke i stille kontemplasjon mot slutten av livet.Behovet for et eget sted – enten det er et fysisk sted eller i skrivingen – kan leses som et gjennomgangstema i alle de tre levende selvbiografiene. Sånt jeg ikke vil vite (til norsk ved Anne Cathrine Wollebæk) skildrer oppvekst i Johannesburg og London, og Levys vei inn i skrivingen. I 2018 kom The Cost of Living, der Levy beskriver forsøket på å finne en ny identitet – og et nytt sted å skrive – etter en skilsmisse.I de tre bøkene utforsker Levy sammenhengene mellom det personlige og det politiske, kvinne- og morskapsrollen, og går i dialog med kunstnere som George Orwell, Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir og Virginia Woolf.Det er kritiker og tidligere Vinduet-redaktør Maria Horvei som snakker med Levy i dette opptaket fra 22. september 2021.

Lee McIntyre is a philosopher of science who serves as a research Fellow at the Center for Philosophy and History of Science at Boston University and an instructor in Ethics at Harvard Extension School. His new book, How to Talk to a Science Denier: Conversations with Flat Earthers, Climate Deniers, and Others Who Defy Reason, is about how we can actually successfully talk people out of dangerous erroneous beliefs. Lee recognizes that merely providing people with correct facts does little, but also believes it's a terrible idea to let bad ideas go unrebutted, or conclude that there's "no point trying to reason with people." His book discusses the importance of building relationships and trust as part of the process of getting people to be open to new ideas, and shows why it's essential in an age of vaccine skepticism and climate denial that we learn how to effectively defend scientific truths. He joined Current Affairs editor Nathan J. Robinson to discuss what works and what doesn't when it comes to talking people out of irrational beliefs. Nathan's article on QAnon is here. The story of the QAnoner who gave up his beliefs is from the Washington Post. The George Orwell piece about flat earth beliefs that Nathan quotes is here.

“Outside my work,” Orwell wrote in 1940, “the thing I care most about is gardening, especially vegetable gardening.” The American author Rebecca Solnit went in search of the fruit trees Orwell planted in his cottage garden in Hertfordshire in 1936. But what she found was rose bushes - something she at first thought was incongruous with the “grim, grey” figure she supposed Orwell to be.
