(9098) Did the Sokal affair "destroy postmodernism"? - YouTube
"society of the spectacle" - The Society of the Spectacle is a 1967 work of philosophy and Marxist critical theory by Guy Debord, in which the author develops and presents the concept of the Spectacle. The book is considered a seminal text for the Situationist movement. // Mass media and commodity fetishism - Comparison between religion and marketing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Society_of_the_Spectacle --- In his analysis of the spectacular society, Debord notes that the quality of life is impoverished,[6] with such a lack of authenticity that human perceptions are affected, and an attendant degradation of knowledge, which in turn hinders critical thought.[7] Debord analyzes the use of knowledge to assuage reality: the spectacle obfuscates the past, imploding it with the future into an undifferentiated mass, a type of never-ending present; in this way the spectacle prevents individuals from realizing that the society of spectacle is only a moment in history, one that can be overturned through revolution.[8][9] << see by Byung-chul han - Psycho politics and the tired exhausted depressed worker who can't imagine getting up for a revolution. thus votes brexit and trump. where am I getting my pizza if we have a revolution?

How #MeToo revealed the central rift within feminism today | News | The Guardian
It’s not a generational divide, but rather a split between two competing visions of feminism – social and individualist. // from a theoretical point of view feminism is socialism and socialism embraces feminism. feminism is a leg a pillar for socialism .. vs capitalisn neo hyper individualismus - what came first - feminism (sufferagettes) or socialism (atley, et al) historically, feminism came first. but interestingly not in germany. what is german timeline of feminism sufferagete womens vote and workers rights (pension and health and free sundays)

Nailed It! The cooking show that bakes capitalism to a crisp | Jack Bernhardt | Opinion | The Guardian
In some ways, competitive reality TV is a microcosm for the competitive nature of society: every contestant is pitted against each other, fighting to be recognised as the best baker/butcher/candlestick maker (Love Productions is probably already filming the Great British Candlestick Carving, hosted by Jo Whiley), and the panic and stress they go through is what makes it compelling viewing – that and the slight chance that at some point Gordon Ramsay will scream so hard, he’ll turn inside out.

Neoliberalism has conned us into fighting climate change as individuals | Martin Lukacs | Environment | The Guardian
Neoliberalism has taken this internalized self-blame and turbocharged it. It tells you that you should not merely feel guilt and shame if you can’t secure a good job, are deep in debt, and are too stressed or overworked for time with friends. You are now also responsible for bearing the burden of potential ecological collapse.

individualism tends to capitalism (each their own coloured widget) vs individuality of the individual. don't mistake the one for the other and you can't achieve the same happiness and well-being with just individualism because it is also based on constant consumption. // what people leave out of socialism and the pundits decry over it. is democracy. democratic socialism. // Plutocracy is undercutting its ability to survive! Problem, the system will take us down with it. // We got ecological catastrophe on our doorstep. Nuclear catastrophe. And Capitalisms catastrophe. //&! Ceased all power and rendered the citizen powerless. This is no capitalistic democracy. This is crony capitalism. - Chris Hedges June 8, 2015 - youtu.be/iA41ggsdeXE - capitalism has no internal constraints. remove external constraints & it will see & use everything (private free market enterprise) as replaceable & commodity w a price (even the planet): the environment, workers health. &! non-violent revolution!

Studie: Deutsche wünschen sich immer weniger Kinder - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Jetzt zeigt eine aktuelle Studie, warum die Bundesbürger auf Nachwuchs verzichten: Grund sind alte Rollenbilder - und der Wunsch nach Selbstverwirklichung.

Die Ergebnisse sind ernüchternd. Vielen Deutschen sind ihr Beruf, ihre Hobbys und ihre Freunde wichtiger als ein Kind zu bekommen. Dem Bericht zufolge lautet das Fazit: "Kinder stellen nicht mehr für alle Deutschen einen zentralen Lebensbereich dar."

Die Gründe dafür sind vielfältig. So hat sich die gesellschaftliche Haltung zum Thema Elternschaft deutlich verändert. Vor einem halben Jahrhundert galt man eigentlich erst als richtig erwachsen, wenn man einen Beruf hatte, verheiratet war und Kinder hatte. Heute gibt es für das Kinderkriegen keine Anerkennung mehr. Und kaum noch jemand erwartet, dass sich seine gesellschaftliche Stellung durch Nachwuchs verbessert. Viele Menschen befürchten offenbar sogar, dass mehr als zwei oder drei Kinder ein Makel sein könnten.

Hochqualifizierte verzichten ganz auf Nachwuchs
