Wir dürfen für kein Ideal, keine Weltanschauung und politische Postion oder Wirtschaftsystem, die Grundregeln der Demokratie wie Meinungs- und Pressefreiheit, Gewaltenteilung und freie demokratische Wahlen aufgeben oder einschränken. Das Ergebnis wäre immer ein totalitäres System und die Selbst- und Weltzerstörung.


We must not give up or restrict the basic rules of democracy such as freedom of opinion and press, separation of powers and free democratic elections for any ideal, worldview, political position or economic system. The result would always be a totalitarian system and self and world destruction.

The Ship

Wiping off the water droplets from my face

And resting the oars for a while,

My eyes squinted to look at a sight,

Far wide, far wide, then my vision became volatile.

But I was sure I saw taffrail bright as a queen’s necklace.



My eyes were dry from many nights of rowing,

Blisters all over my hands.

But my mind was as sharp as the woodpecker’s beak.

The hand shook me yet I was sure I was no more in my Fantasyland,

For I saw some silhouettes girting round our raft and voices of

Someone bellowing; from deep down the sea.



I was again given a shake by that hand,

Broke from my reverie,

Only to find I was finally at a place

That belonged to me.

That belonged to me.

Fight… fight not just for you but your friends, your family even for the people who claim to be your enemy. Fight even when you’ve been knocked down. Even when that foot is pressing hard against your shoulder holding you to the ground. grab it and twist tell that demon your stronger, better and you hold the control over your mind…. because your not only fighting for yourself but everyone else…

Turn all that fear and anger, that saddens and rage in something good. Fight for a life better then the one forced on you.

“I assign myself no rank or any limit, and such an attitude is very much against the trend of the times. But my world has become one of infinite possibilities.”

Abstract

The focus of this paper is on the notion of ‘addictive consumption’, conceived as a set of discourses that are embedded within wider socio-historical processes of governance and control. It examines the discursive convergences and conflicts between practices of consumption and notions of addiction, which it notes are consistently represented in terms of the oppositional categories of self-control vs. compulsion and freedom vs. determinism. These interrelations are explored with reference to the development of notions of addiction, and their relation to shifting configurations of identity, subjectivity and governance.

Finally, it suggests that the notion of ‘addiction’ has particular valence in advanced liberal societies, where an unprecedented emphasis on the values of freedom, autonomy and choice not only encourage the conditions for its proliferation into ever wider areas of social life, but also reveal deep tensions within the ideology of consumerism itself.

‘Every age develops its own peculiar forms of pathology, which express in exaggerated form, its underlying character structure’ (Christopher Lasch 1979: 41)
