It has been one of those weeks for me when a quote from Jiddu
Krishnamurti, the Indian speaker and writer, came to mind many
‘It is no measure of health to be
well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.’
But that is what I see all the time -
people well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society and as the quote
in the headline says:
Insanity is a perfectly rational
adjustment to an insane world.
We have had a story running in Britain
for the last week or so about a football manager called
Paolo di Canio.
He is a former player in this country
who went on to manage a lower-league club, Swindon Town. But then he
was hired by Sunderland in the Premiership and suddenly what had not
been a major problem and hardly ever mentioned became a national
Di Canio had made the fascist salute during a match when he played
for Lazio in Italy and had described his political views in terms
that he was ‘a fascist, not a racist’ in 2005.
He has also said that Italian dictator
Benito Mussolini was,
‘basically a very principled,
ethical individual’ who was ‘deeply misunderstood’.
Now in my world, although I profoundly
disagree with him, he has a right to those views so long as he
doesn’t force them and the consequences on anyone and there is
absolutely no evidence of that.
They are just his views and he’s a
football manager, not standing for Parliament or starting a
The media storm over Di Canio’s appointment as manager of Sunderland
in the North East of England was triggered by the resignation from
the club in protest by non-executive vice-chairman
David Miliband, the brother of
Ed Miliband, the leader of the opposition Labour Party.
David Miliband resigned in protest at the views expressed eight
years ago by Di Canio, a football player and manager who has done
nothing to put what he believes into political practice.
Miliband, the ‘man of principle’, wanted
to make a statement (he is moving to America anyway) that he
abhorred fascism - not least as a member of a Jewish Marxist family
whose mother lived in mainland Europe during the Nazi era.
Yes, very principled.
Isn’t this the same David
Miliband, a British Foreign Secretary and former close
advisor to Tony Blair, who supported the invasions
of Afghanistan and Iraq which killed and maimed for life
millions of civilians based on lies?
Is this the same man who taped
his mouth and sat on his hands in the face of the
ever-unfolding genocide against Palestinians by Israel when
as Foreign Secretary he could have loudly and continually
condemned and exposed what is happening?
It surely is.
The same David Miliband who resigned very publicly in protest at the
views some years ago of a football manager who, to my knowledge, has
never voted to bomb and slaughter anyone. I may not agree with Di
Canio’s views, but I know which of the two has done most to put
fascism into practice and who therefore is the greater danger to
But Miliband will not for a second see this gross hypocrisy because
he is well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
Miliband and his mate.
