|Re: <nettime> notes from Brexania in limbo...|
|Thanks Keith, yes I am an an enthusiastic follower of Fintan O’tool’s writing and lectures. Its instructive that in both the cases we have mentioned |
from Ireland and India both in different ways victims of English post-collonial delusion. The fact that Ireland
barely featured in the refferndum campaign and yet is now threatening to de-rail the whole process is indicative of the persistance of the post
imperial cataract that continues to obscure England's vision of itself and others.
There has been one writer that I have found useful (English this time) Anthony Barnett whose Lure of Greatness sees Brexit as
a crisis arising not simply from the UK but as an English malady, founded on a large hole in the heart of the ‘English’ national identity now that the
other so called 'home nations’ have their own assemblies. Their flags are not associated with racist gangs in the way that the flag of St George is.
They have been able articulate a different conception of national identity.. A reasonable substitute for reading his book is this Youtube lecture..
curious what people think.
Finaly its a pity all these thinkers I am referencing are men.. How much of these neo-nationalist pathologies are man made…?
