CHALLENGING A MINDSET WHEN IT’S WRONG
Over the years a relative handful of people endeavoured with mixed success to move the goal posts in connection with:-
Chinese foot binding
Female genital mutilation
The plutocracy’s privatisation of the public’s rent
… amongst a number of other worthy reforms.
As Orwell says, it’s just “not done”. To achieve change is difficult, even when it’s essential. The current hegemony employs very tough minders.
“It can never happen; so why bother?”
All of which makes the challenge the more worthwhile.
