OOO. Some good friends of mine put across the following arguement about the big ONE O double double you:
'Why does ONE WORLD week even bother? I find it quite ridiculous that a week which is supposed to celebrate our ONE world in which EVERYONE is a significant part of can be so bloody stupid. Doesn't Mr. ONE WORLD realise that by celebrating ONE world, people get into little cliques with the ethnically similar. It therefore become segregation week. There's no way you would ever see one of the Norwegian society dancing in the Portugese society section.Why couldn't they?I thought it was ONE WORLD, not, like 50 microcosms of the ONE WORLD.'
I, however, totally get that it's reaLLy important for everybody to celebrate their own culture and show everyone else how important it is to be part of that ONE WORLD. So I said. 'Fuck off'.
But now, I'm a little bemused. There are people who REEEAAALLLY hate one world week…despite the fact that you get free Japanese food and…one time I got free red wine (must have been French day).
Any views out there? We all have the right to comment on blogs, after all….it is ONE WORLD.
Good bless Karl Marx.
