A work in ‘progress’

‘The Meta-Blog’

‘Ramblinactivist’ Paul Mobbs’ work-related occasional blog – examining the troublesome and often difficult meanings behind today’s news and events rather than repeating the ‘conventional wisdom’ of the mass/social media.

I’m a great believer in the ‘sieve of time’: The idea that the progress of time discards the irrelevant, leaving us just the essential things that we should focus on.

If we could muster sufficient discernment to focus on those things in the here-and-now how much more progress might we make? For 2023, I thought I’d start a new series of posts and videos – focussing on the most significant ‘new’ items that the painstream media sees fit to ignore, misquote, or misreport.
