Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine ( the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers )
Lets just go right to the Video!
That was fun! Hey, you know what the hardest part about writing these Posts is, at least lately? Writing from a rogerian point of view.1 We know what it should ‘look like’, we know how the words should ‘read’, we have even had discussions on Saturday Night Drives about the ‘shape and tone’ of the rogerian style. But it is a lot like learning a new language. At first you memorize the words and common phrases and practice pronunciation. Then you begin to form whole thoughts and complete sentences (in this new language), finally you either get everyone in your language class to agree to speak only this language, or (better yet) you go to the country where they speak the language and try to get through a day.2
In any event, we will not be going into a long discussion of the challenge of writing in the rogerian language. For now we will direct your attention to Comments from the Progenitor roger, and DownSpring Phyllis (in the previous Post) and anything you will find on the Secessionist Rag, or mostly teachable. Those are written in the rogerian style. We bring this up as we are going to be making a concerted effort to bring in some (new) rogerian readers, or better I say, we will try to get the rogerian Readers out there to get more active with this Doctrine thing.
To that end, let me ask the question: Is there any interest to either: a) modifying the times of the Wakefield Doctrine Saturday Night Drive or 2) adding another ‘time slot’ doing an additional ‘call in’ show? We could do a Sunday morning or afternoon (which might be useful to our more time-zone challenged Readers). Just wanted to get the idea out there! Let us know your thoughts/impulses/feelings.
(cool, vintage music video: only Hendrix could do a line like “…carnival traffic noise” and get away with it!)
1) not as concerned with the language of scotts, mostly Hey! Fuck! come over here and ‘hey, pull my finger’ Mostly the written language of the scott is as the spoken language, very direct: noun-verb-object. Pretty simple, isn’t it?
2) people who actually do learn or teach foreign languages are invited to add to modify this description (of the learning process) apologies to any Rosette Stoners who may take offence at my simplification of an arduous and complex process. (danke)
