What are you wittering on about, My Black Cat?
You think they are trying to reframe you?
Who are they?
The government, the coalition, the opposition.... All three political parties. They’ve been doing it for years.
What makes you think that?
The bizarre number of times they utter the words “Choice” and “Change.” Then they don’t explain what they mean. We are being primed to accept something or another.
But I thought you had worked out the meaning of “Change” My Black Cat…..
I have. It means we have to be reframed by the government to think differently about many things.
What kind of things?
Anything, any political party deems it is necessary for us to think differently about. They want to get the streets clear of litter, so they employ actors and dress them up as big bananas and they act as kind of policemen and cheer if we put our banana skins in a bin.
What do they do if you throw them on the pavement. Will they pick them up and put them in the bin for you?
My Black Cat, this kind of reframing is a very good thing. Soon there will be no banana skins lying about and old ladies won’t slip on them and break a hip. These politicians are doing this for our own good. We should be happy that we are being reframed by giant bananas.
So, you think Change is to do with reframing us all and the process may involve giant bananas?
There is something else bothering you, My Black Cat…..
It will take 12 hours or so to complete.
Don’t be ridiculous, My Black Cat, the government can’t embezzle 12 hours out of everyone’s life as part of a reframing exercise on “Choice!”
Well, here is a GP reporting on his experiences of filling it in this gigantic questionnaire.
He didn’t seem amused.
Gigantic bananas, gigantic questionnaires….
Hey, My Black Cat, go and count the number of times “Choice” is mentionied in the questionnaire. The Witch Doctor tried to do it. The word “choice” is mentioned hundereds and hundreds and hundreds of times! She lost count because she went into one of her famous hypnotic trances. Probably it was a side effect, or maybe a defence mechanism, employed when trying to re-frame an disobliging witch.
