  •  This diary reminds me of the Bush aide (0+ / 0-)

    (probably Rove) who made the remark about the "reality-based community". He said his side made their own reality while the reality based community spent its time trying to make sense of the reality it perceived . . .

     I'd never heard of this Australian School and am delighted to be introduced to it as one of the pseudo-intellectual underpinnings of the Rovian right wing.  I do think the right wing has been successful in breaking down the shared consensus about meanings. authorities and how things work  that are so important  to shared cultural identity.

    In another diary here just today I commented on how they have managed to undermine the agreed upon meanings of words in order to make constructive communication between those with differing views mostly impossible.

    Thanks so much for the diary, very informative.
