What\’s a \’real job\’? According to this bizarre attack on the Cabinet\’s \”lack of real-world experience\”, the following jobs aren\’t:
- University lecturer
- Political analyst
- Head of strategic planning
- Trade union leader
- PR consultant
- Social worker
I mean, what the fuck? How are these jobs any less \’real\’ than the IT consulting jobs that most right-libertoonians [*] seem to have? Would we really be better off with fewer teachers and more cunting web designers? Or is this some kind of macho fantasy-land, where self-hating web-monkeys imagine a world where we\’re ruled by brave manly soldiers, shipbuilders and mechanics…?
From the same piece, these two quotes are brilliantly mad:
\”Not only is a he a fully paid up member of the Lawyer Enemy Class, he\’s had ten years of being part of the European Union Borg Mind.\”
\”UN Transnazi anti-American wanker\”.
Jesus. The EU\’s merits are debatable (and there\’s a lot of internal and external debate on them, which makes the \’borg mind\’ quip more than a little bizarre…). But EU aside, how much of a crazy-arsed jaded cunt do you have to be to believe that defending people\’s civil rights, or attempting [with varied levels of success from conflict to conflict] to broker non-military solutions to the world\’s problems, are bad things?
[*] out of right-libertoonians who\’ve mentioned their jobs online, I can\’t remember any who aren\’t IT consultants, and I can think of several who are. If you know any right-libertoonians whose jobs are unequivocally more useful than any mentioned above, please post it in the comments.
