This morning I had forty emails. Excited I was by the prospect of discourse. But not one of them was doing anything other than trying to sell me something. Then the technical device asked me whether I wished to 'auto archive,' and usually when this question is asked, because I try to be agreeable when around technical devices, I replied with a 'yes.' Today, however, I replied with a 'no' and I did so in a somewhat aggressive manner that gave me a brief moment of immense satisfaction. It's this sort of taking control with the word 'no' that places a person on the right of a political spectrum, I decided.
Sadly I have absolutely no idea what 'auto archive' means.
Sadder still I have no clue how to resurrect the 'auto archive's' question so
that I might change my mind, and in my confusion I have somehow said 'yes' to an
equally confusing question from the technical device, and as a result I have
just deleted every email I have ever sent or received, leaving me with a sense
of loss, which has resulted in a strong desire to 'undo.' But fortunately
I think that somewhere in my current dilemma is a long sought definition of
the word 'principle' as it is understood by the political class.
