The Fourth R

The fourth R

Politicians, Teachers, Scientists, Academics and Doctors have lost their Fourth R. The results emerge daily from Government Departments, from Health to Education, from the Home Office to Foreign Office and from the Treasury.

The Fourth R shows the Emperor’s nakedness and demonstrates that “fine words butter no parsnips”. Without it, we are helpless in the hands of experts, headless in the face of specialists and technologists and hopeless in the face of injustice.

The Four R’s are:

Reasoning, Reading, 'Riting and 'Rithmetic

Reasoning keeps society safe from lying politicians and cheating Charlatans. It is the foundation of Justice and looks for what is reasonable. It is a major defence against the onslaught of the Orwellian New World Order

It seems we have lost our Reason. In the current climate, if it is not restored quickly, we will face the fifth R of progress - Revolution.

How right you are. Orwell said that all else would follow if we looked for 2 + 2 equalling four.
