the Wakefield Doctrine (…on with their hats…)
There is much to talk about but first, the fun of fashion, Doctrine Style. Envy the owners of the scottian heads that will soon be adorned by this fine hat.
Look on this, and feel the desire grow within your heart on behalf of your un-hatted head. Pretty nice, you say? Damn right is pretty nice. Maybe even too nice!
The lucky two with these hats (Ms. AKH and Ms. Pixieblonde) are both fortunate and deserving of your envious thoughts, you should accept that you must earn such fashion. There will be new opportunity for both Men and Women of the clarklike, scottian and rogerian varieties, to earn such headcoverings.
Alright, enough with the hats already. They have theirs and you can get yours if you really want to, but we are not here, writing this to sell hats.
We are here writing this to sell* the Wakefield Doctrine (aka the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers).
And by *sell we mean present to as many as qualified** people as possible the principles and practical applications*** of said Doctrine.
And by **qualified we mean people who upon visiting this blog and reading it’s content are capable of loosening the grip of dogma enough to allow the overlay of the description of the world that the Doctrine offers.
And by ***principles and practical applications of the Doctrine, we mean it offers an alternative, an adjunct to the way most of us interpret the actions, behaviors and intentions of the people we live and work and play with every day of our lives****.
And by****lives, we mean the increasingly rigid lens through which we not only perceive the world we exist in, but we also use as the template which informs our experiences as we live our lives.
Let’s talk about practical applications (of the Doctrine)….the Doctrine tells us that only one of the three (clarks, scotts and rogers) consider a tool that is useful in altering themselves (and thereby their realities) to be a valuable thing. In other words to change themselves. You know who you are.
Another of the three will, if engaged sufficiently in the Wakefield Doctrine, consider the most valuable is as a tool to change others, changing the view that the world has of them.
Finally, the third (of the three) will view the Doctrine as a tool, a weapon, to aid them in dealing with the hostile world they live in.
Tired? Bored? You want what? Come on people, learn first then have fun.
(Alright…damn, I wonder if Rev Moon had to put up with this…alright…short break for you attention-span challenged Readers….I see you out there scott. Jeez, try to bring the Secret of the Universe to the masses and what do you get…”More videos!!” and they are not even mine, if it wasn’t for the youtube we probably would have been shut down months ago. OK here you go…)
OK back to work…
(Free hat to the Reader who correctly identifies which of the three Ray was; to enter you need to write a Comment at the bottom of this Post. You must tell us which Ray is (clark, scott or roger) and why that is the case. Free hat to the first 5 correct responses recieved by 4:00 pm Monday March 8th)
OK. Back to work.
|… lets get all Readers Digest on this thing.
It can be said that clarks can believe anything and therefore believe in nothing. (If you know what that means, you are a clark).
|yeah here too, lets get all Readers Digest on this thing.
One of the most useful metaphors in the Wakefield Doctrine is: grouping (when you have more than one of each type, what do the characteristics tell us about the individual?)
a group of scotts is a pack
|you gotta like the form, its a fucking bullet list, but lets get all Readers Digest on this thing.
Herds, rogers be in herds…
Well, that is helpful, no?
Alright, we have covered a lot of ground. No, there will be no questions from the floor, roger. The eyes I see have a distinct glaze.
But in all seriousness, read this shit and look around you today, right now. Pick one person only and decide whether they are a clark, scott or roger. And keep checking their behavior against the Doctrine. I guarentee that once you find one, the others will be much more obvious. You will probably spot a roger first, but any of the three will do. Personally, I think it would be easier and more fun to spend a little extra time and find your nearest clark. (The clarklike females are totally easy to spot). Don’t bother with which of the three you are at this point. Not important. You just want to spot the clarks, and the scotts and the rogers around you. Like one of those old puzzles in the back of kids magazines or Sunday supplements, “Find the tigers in the jungle”; once you discern the first pattern, the rest jump out at you.
Now don’t think we don’t know that which of the three (clarks, scotts or rogers) you happen to be, will have an effect on how you respond to this…but by virtue of the fact that you are still reading, still with us is proof that you have what it takes to apply the Doctrine in your own life.
Good luck, don’t forget the contest and don’t worry so much…
