My method for approaching the problem of fascism gives a nod to the logic associated with the term ‘iteration’, itself inseparable from ‘reiteration’. But my method is more properly recursive, a term that will come around again.
That’s a joke.
Because of the recursive nature of my method, my approach to the problem of fascism may appear bassackwards–just try and roll with it.
That’s another joke.
Iterative and recursive methods of inquiry both assume there is a problem to be solved, a question (or set of questions) to be answered.
An iterative approach to solving the correct path through a maze proceeds until it is blocked, then retraces its steps, and repeats the process with a deviation to accommodate the impasse, until the correct path to the exit is discovered. And that’s fine for a maze, or a series. To link these steps into a unified operation is called an algorithm.
