S&F Beware the Conversation Weasel, repurposed

S&F Conversation Weasel- small


You’ve probably figured out by now I’ve been redrawing a few older strips for another project, and here’s one more.  This one accompanied a post on Conversational Narcissim (a.k.a. beware the Conversation Weasel!)

  1. Funny!!! That reminds me of this girl I know… I think she was wearing a red had too… How ironic. Boy, could she hog up all the attention! I kept trying to tell her about this cute thing my dog would do and she kept interrupting. The dog dog is just sooo cute. It could have a youtube channel. Ah geez, I could go on all day…………..

  2. I enjoy your recurring theme of voice, more specifically, whose voice gets heard. Conversation Weasel, Why Philosophy? (April 2014), Oilin the Machine (Sept 2012) to name three.
    We are more connected than ever but our voices remain under continuous assault, both figuratively and literally.

    “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.”
    –Noam Chomsky

    • And I am enjoying your brilliant comments. Always thought-provoking, insightful, and containing something to share/ teach. Thank you for taking the time to consider and post your take on things, it’s been a great pleasure to read them.

      Re: Chomsky.. yes.. that makes a lot of sense. Reminds me a little bit about a study that showed when people say they are going to do something they are less likely to actually do it then when they say nothing. Apparently talk is indeed greater than action…
