Luggage

One of the challenging things about blogging is that it entails endless unpacking of conventional wisdom (CW).

What do I mean?

Unpacking is a term that means breaking down and explaining complicated issues, especially issues that go against the accepted CW. A great example right now in our Media Industrial Complex (MIC), is the idea that the “swelling debt” will kill us in our beds if we don’t impose immediate austerity on everyone but bankers. So to counter this CW one has to spend an inordinate amount of time unpacking a counter narrative, and explaining why the CW is full of shit.

Not that I’m complaining. This unpacking is what makes for good writing, and is the core function of political bloggers on the internet.

So stay tuned. There’s lots of luggage out there.
