George Orwell on ütelnud, et nalja eesmärk ei ole alavääristada inimest vaid tuletada inimesele meelde, et ta on juba alavääristatud!

E-mail ühelt sõbralt – bushismid

Tere sõber, kuidas sul ka läheb? Uurisin neid sinu ettevalmistatud analüüse ja ütleks, et ei liha ega kala. Sa tead küll, kui väga ma ei armasta neid igasuguseid ism-e. Panen sulle meili lõppu mõned netist leitud näited ühest meie uuest, ism-ist. Kui sa nii jätkad, siis tekivad juurde andrusism, edgarism, jaakism ja võib-olla veel mõned. Kas sa seda ikka tahad? Katsu ennast fokuseerida peamisele – sellele kuhu rahvus tahab välja jõuda kuid kuhu me tänase loosung-arengute ja hetke-populaarsuse taotluse iha, kunagi ei jõua. Strateegiline plaan ja kaugeleulatuvad eesmärgid on need, mis puuduvad. Selle seltskonna eesmärgid on üksnes lähimad neli-viis aastat ja ise-enda esitlemine. Nii, et kui mõne tunneli lõpus hakkabki valgus paistma, kaevavad nad juurde uue tunneli ning olemasolevat lõpuni ei ehita. Sest teade uuest, perspektiivikast tegemisest, teeb teda nähtavamaks kui teade sellest, et x või y algatus viib meid 20 aasta pärast mingi eesmärgini. Mis temal sellest kahekümnest aastast kasu, ta ju selleks hetkeks läinud? Sellepärast on ka juhtoinad sellised valitud. Nad peavad head välja nägema ja olema pidurdamatud jutupaunikud kuid samas nad peavad olema või näima ka natuke lollid. Ütlevad midagi valesti – see tuleb kasuks ja annab võimaluse nende üle irvitada. Teisisõnu, aitab neil püsida pildil! Massidele aga meeldib nalja saada ja lõpuks, kes see enam valikuhetkel mäletab seda, mis juhtus 2-3 aasta eest. Meenutatakse ikka seda, palju kellestki räägitakse. Mis meie siinkandis veel täheldanud oleme on see, et nad peavad olema ustavad ja täitma käsku. Kuid meil pole veel selget arusaamist, kelle või mille juhtnööre ja käske nad peavad täitma. Siin aitaks jällegi pikaajaline analüüs, seekord aga minevikku suunatud. Tagantjärele on ju näha võitjad ja kaotajad. Kes sai ikka kasu sellest, kui kodanik x oli roolis. Nagu meil õeldakse – on olemas demokraatidest ja vabariiklastest kongressmannid kuid pole olemas ameerika kongressmanne. Seega kui tahad tõsiseid analüüse kirjutada, pead pikalt tagasi vaatama minevikku, nägema selgelt rahvuse kaugeleulatuvaid eesmärke ja teadma, kes kellaga käib. Ning kindlasti jälgi meid kuna kopeerite meilt ikka päris palju. Mis jääb mulle muidugi täiesti arusaamatuks arvestades seda, et olete üksnes täpike gloobusel võrreldes meiega. Ahjaa! Lisaks veel, et ma ei hakanud sulle näiteid tõlkima. Oskad ju piisaval meie murrakut ja nagu paljude asjade puhul ikka – tõlkimine kaotab või moonutab originaalset ideed. Seda peaksite ise ju väga hästi omal nahal tunnetama.
