H is for...

H is for Happy...and Hegel

H is for Happy...and Hegel. As we approach the referendum in which we have to vote either 'Yes' or 'No' we can celebrate his concept of dialectic, which is the idea that all human progress is driven by the conflict between opposites. Hegel argued that each political movement is imperfect and therefore gives rise to a counter-movement, which, if it takes control, is also imperfect and therefore gives rise to yet another counter-movement, and so on to infinity.

So...happy ever after?
