Inshallah fatalism meets management gibberish with a new cliché that has cascaded up the learning curve and looped back going forward. That cliché is: "We are where we are."
Senior management at my workplace use it after they have made catastrophic mistakes, as if that catastrophe were a cruel act of fate rather than an eminently foreseeable act of man. "What can you do?" they shrug. "We are where we are." Politicians use it. Eurocrats will soon be using it about the predictable and utterly avoidable disaster that is monetary union. And sooner or later, if nothing is done to reverse the tide of Muslim immigration, we will be where we will be, inshallah.
Islam is here to stay? We are where we are? You can't turn back the clock?
No it isn't. Let's get out of it. It's a race against time.
