We really need to be identifying these courtiers by their status in feudal terms. Then again, women in feudal times did not benefit from so powerful a movement of everyday women fighting for equality. So, I guess we need to call it neo-feudalism, and this standee is a place holder for an entire strata of parasites. The word ‘parasite’ sounds like such a nasty word, but given what is being done, its the only accurate word. The job of her standeeship is to assure that education is not; to assure that the impoverishment - yes, usurpation and replacement with a null set - of the power and strengths of human beings to democratically determine the needed education of the day, meeting the realities with which we live, is ‘externalized’ and marginalized for privatization for profit.
Dumber - perhaps more in the sense of speechless - than a damn sack of hammers and does she even wonder why she is disliked? Is this what was meant by legally blind and/or blonde? The claws must have rigor mortis by now.
What do you do about a person so deeply dissociative and destructive of the intricacies of societal health, who defines her worth by doing - and/or not doing - what she is doing?
She will remain sick until she becomes sick of her sickness - to paraphrase the Tao te Ching. A resignation would no doubt reflect at least some redeeming quality. I will not be holding my breath.
These folks need to assimilate, process and actually understand the full scope and meaning of the admonition:
‘They try to bury us, but they do not understand that we are seeds’.
