Interview: Prof. Tjeerd Andringa – Bureaucracy and Authoritarianism

Tjeerd Andringa has been featured here at the blog previously. Love his work on bureaucracy!
Oh and I was absolutely thrilled to hear him take on the blow back nonsense-
Another meme the repeaters just love. Another meme I find to be just plain foolish.

The logical fallacy of “blowback” Intoxication with the blowback mind virus

Logical Fallacy: a misconception resulting from incorrect reasoning;  the logical fallacy of assuming the conclusion in the premises
Blowback is a logical fallacy- the logical fallacy of assuming the conclusion in the premises
Blowback, as commonly touted by the lying war mongering media, is always presented in this fashion: unforseen consequences from previous actions  Emphasis always on the “unforseen”  
 Bureaucracy is the art of making the possible impossible –Javier Pascual Salcedo
A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy. –Aldous Huxley

Last words
 Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus—the bureaucracy, the police, the military. Not the one facing us across the frontier of the battle lines, which is not so much our enemy as our brothers' enemy, but the one that calls itself our protector and makes us its slaves. No matter what the circumstances, the worst betrayal will always be to subordinate ourselves to this apparatus and to trample underfoot, in its service, all human values in ourselves and in others. –Simone Weil Abstract
