— Comments on the long abstract.
I always find myself pondering: what project is implied in the overt rendering of content purpose ?
Less about what is encoded or what is covert: What is being said that is supposed not needing to be said is the true issue with many academic events.
The jist I get from the abstract is that we are not going anywhere despite ideals which see history as a series of progressive notices.
My view is two fold:
1) there will always be people who see progress and who will thus assert the sense of an objective history to prove the point even to the effect of violence — so solute and yet unsubstantial their view is. The record media confirms the sense of progress to these and thus catalyzes theorists who then tow the line of the progressive cosmology to create, develop and implement what is effectively propaganda, or for another era, religious cosmology.
2) the greater ability to record eventive media will allow a minority who receive data and information from what is given to begin to notice that ideological states do not “progress” from one another or otherwise represent a move forward and better than the previous. States merely arise with “sensibility” only being gained of state relations in hindsight, and this notice could allow the governance of human beings to proceed along a different kind of rule.
The two arising in what is generally understood as a common linguistic bucket arena thus become confused with one another to thus allow for the real ideological default to lean toward the historical progressivism…x
