In Australia it is possible that after the September we will have a Bogan government.
Boganism is nothing to do with money, position, economic groups. Bogans cannot be categorised by where they live, what they do for a living or their level of education.
Boganism is a state of mind that makes it impossible to hear anything that another person has to say.
Whorf’s linguistic comes in many forms but basically it says that a person’s perception of the world is governed by the language they have to think with. The de-facto Australian language is now Boganism and this is the language forms Australia’s view the world.
The Basic Bogan Language.
There are many dialects of Boganese but in its most basic form it has a vocabulary of seven words. Those seven words consist of four imperatives, two obscenity’s and a given.
The four imperatives are Food, Booze, Sex and Money, not necessarily in that order. These four words will give the Basic Bogan an extremely limited base to construct his/her view of the world, but it is usually just sufficient to enable them to stagger from birth to death with a little breeding on the way.
To save the Bogan’s from having the appearance of being totally Neanderthal in nature, communicating in only a series of grunts the Bogan’s needs the two obscenities.
The two obscenities are sprinkled liberally between the four imperatives to give the illusion of sentence construction. They do not add anything to the Bogan’s perception of the world but they are the closest there is to grammar that exists in this most basic of languages.
To complete the Bogan language it is the given that anyone whose perception of the world extends past Basic Bogan is a ‘W’. The word used by the Bogan’s beginning wiTh W (not as in George W) is the most destructive word ever invented.
The Place of W in the Boganese Language.
W’s are clearly an inferior form of life. By applying this word to anyone with an enhanced perception of the world that lies beyond the Bogan’s comprehension the Bogan can maintain his/her position as the ultimate form of life.
The result is a person who can communicate his/her most needs basic in an extremely limited way whilst establishing beyond doubt that they are the master race.
This has nothing to do with intelligence. There is nothing to suggest the adherents to the Boganese language are any more or less intelligent than the general population. It is just that they have nothing to be intelligence about. Intelligence cannot work in a vacuum, but unfortunate a vacumuum is exactly what Basic Boganese creates.
The word W also makes it impossible for the Bogan to learn. The word establishes bogans as the master race so how would it be possible for a clearly inferior life form teach them anything? They already know everything because food, booze, sex, money and W coupled liberally obscenities covers their known world.
Bogans know everything but understanding nothing, and will never understand anything until they stop using ‘W’ mentality to reinforce the master race illusion that they already know everything.
At the beginning I said that Boganism was not a socio-economic phenomena. It is a way of thinking. It is viewing the world with a very limited vocabulary.
The Accountant who sees the world only as a bottom line is thinking Bogan. If a lawyer sees the world as a legal argument is Bogan through and through.
Never has Boganism been more visible than on what is called ‘talk back radio.’
If you want to hear the Bogan language if full swing listen to what are commonly called ‘shock jocks’ on the radio. Four word presenters giving endless airtime to four-word listeners with the only theme for calling is that anyone who does not agree to their simplistic four-word solutions is one of those that conform to that oft mentioned word. Usually their solution is that such obviously inferior beings should be put in a chaff bag and dropped in the sea.
The Australian Election is being fought on a four-word basis. For Abbott those words are carbon-tax (a single word in Abbott’s vocabulary), Mining-Tax (also a single word), Debt (what debt?) and Liar. The last is very strange for Abbott to call anyone a liar, but since the concept of truth is not in the Bogan language I think he is using it as a substitute for W.
We have a major problem facing the future of the human race. It is called climate change. But that does not fit into any concept that can be reduced to four-words. It doesn’t fit into food, booze, sex or money so that anyone that believes it is happening must clearly be one of those inferior beings that need to be put into a chaff bag.
Abbott (and Murdoch) can reduce it to one of the four words. Money. The carbon-tax has been made a substitute for money. It will cost money so it must be wrong.
The concept of science is so far left field for Bogans that they have not the slightest idea what it means.
Lord Monkey has a four-word vocabulary and uses those four-words to sound like he understands science. That is good enough for Bogans. There is someone who speaks Boganese who sound like he knows about climate change so the Bogans can claim to understand climate change. This is reinforced because it fits in to Abbott’s position that doing something about climate change will cost money when it isn’t happening anyway since science is clearly outside his comprehension of reality.
In order to mobilise the Bogan element we have the four word press. The four-word press uses the same four word as Abbott. This is hardly surprising because the four-word press tells Abbott what four words to use so they can report what he said.
Abbott’s (Murdoch’s) four words will be reported on page one and if anyone is impolite enough so say something contrary to Murdoch if it has to be reported it will placed at the bottom of page 17, which is where W’s belong..
At the beginning I said that Boganism has nothing to do with intelligence, it is about what the Bogan has to be intelligence about. Murdoch is a case in point. He is intelligently exploiting the four-word vocabulary very effectively. Murdoch seems to have an abridge version consisting of Money, Power, Money and Power.
The election in September is going to be fought on Murdoch the Bogan’s four words Money, Power, Money and Power. Abbott will do as he is told and anyone who wishes to talk about policies will be assigned that word and placed in a chaff bag for disposal.
