Politik richt sich nicht nur immer in der Spannung zwischen dem Universellen und Singularitäten ein, sondern wird von dieser auch permanent zerrissen und zerfällt in Politiken.

Our house is on fire - or is it?


If there was ever a «proof» of Hegel’s much-maligned conception of the «world-historical figure» in whose personality is incarnated one or another movement of the world-spirit, sweeping away outmoded historical processes and political dead-ends, it must be this girl. - Gavin Walker


Eine Fiktion ist nicht die Erfindung einer imaginären Welt, sondern sie ist die Erstellung eines Rahmens, innerhalb dessen Subjekte, Dinge und Situationen als in einer gemeinsamen Welt koexistierend wahrgenommen werden können, und innerhalb dessen Ereignisse sinnvoll identifiziert und miteinander verbunden werden können. Fiktion ist immer dann am Werk, wenn ein Realitätssinn hergestellt werden muss.  - Jaques Rancière



WORLD-SPIRIT

If there was ever a « proof » of Hegel’s much-maligned conception of the « world-historical figure » in whose personality is incarnated one or another movement of the world-spirit, sweeping away outmoded historical processes and political dead-ends, it must be this girl (Greta). How utterly unlikely it is to imagine that what began in this picture could result today in the mobilization of tens of millions on a global scale. Of course, yes, one can and ought to cynically point out her médiatisation, the way in which she is mobilized by all sorts of cooptations, the way her discourse can easily be slipped into and adopted by all sorts of dubious positions, the naive liberalism of her followers, etc. And yet, wasn’t it always more likely to simply end as a cute human interest story on the BBC or CBC - « Swedish girl strikes alone for climate » - that circulated and then vanished, leaving her in obscure normalcy? Nothing is more unlikely than the degree to which the peculiar or even obsessive protest of a teenage girl at her school in Sweden has come to be the incarnation of world outrage at the politico-ecological suicide that capitalist society is currently committing.

Gavin Walker


FIKTION

„Eine Fiktion ist nicht die Erfindung einer imaginären Welt, sondern sie ist die Erstellung eines Rahmens, innerhalb dessen Subjekte, Dinge und Situationen als in einer gemeinsamen Welt koexistierend wahrgenommen werden können, und innerhalb dessen Ereignisse sinnvoll identifiziert und miteinander verbunden werden können. Fiktion ist immer dann am Werk, wenn ein Realitätssinn hergestellt werden muss.“  - Jaques Rancière


GENERAL STRIKE

The only chance I see vis-à-vis la grande catastrophe is that it's a universal event, the only real universal event there is, It leaves no outside in the most radical way we can think of. If this will not lead to a mass mobilization on a scale we have never seen before then there is really no hope and in way we deserve to disappear, not only because of all the historical and current crimes (always some) humans conducted but because of stupidity. But this of course is a political struggle. Between us and la grande catastrophe are not emotions or concepts but a general strike. The machine has to be stopped ... only a revolution can save us now ... some will be bold and will fight with courage some will loose hope half way ... some will ... but for sure it will be not easy ... Unfortunately the question how real and dangerous climate change is and whats to be done, is a conceptual one ... so the fight gets stuck in the symbolic order ... which is always messy ...
