Call in to speak with the host
While Shakespeare taught the world the range of English language expression, he never denied the beauty of the french language. This program refers to just such a word- ennui- the grand indifference. When citizens are indifferent to authority small minded men throughout history try acts of deparation, the exercise of power as tryanny. But I bring it only to illustrate another use of the term, far less muscular that power and leadership to talk about what ennui can do to a way of thinking.
Before we go running off in all directions, it would be helpful to think about this. Ennui is a mannerly way of saying ' I don't care'.
Should we know when this type of attitude settles in or presume we are immune to that stuff? If a few talk like this- what difference can it make in the big picture? The problem with indifference is that it spreads from one to another and leaves a trail behind.
