We agree WHEN Mo started going PO, but not necessarily why
Martin Henry Dawson , on enlistment, 1915
My partner, Rebecca, has tried to explain the meaning behind the title of my latest blog "MO goes PO" .
All I can add is that there is overwhelming agreement that the Mo-to-Po revolution began fairly abruptly, in 1945.
You remember 1945, the end of 'double-u, double-u, two' , the so called last good war and the last good generation.
Few people have given a good account why PoMo began then, AND in the nations of the moral victors.
If the good guys are just won the war against the bad guys, why were the good guys leading the way in uneasily evaluating their own values ?
I hope "MO goes PO" succeeds in telling us why....
