Ich schau dir in die Augen, gesellschaftlicher Verblendungszusammenhang!

by René Pollesch

Mabuse...? Mabuse...? Was he not a player in the global financial crisis? And what do players in the global financial crisis do? The crisis in the financial markets has triggered irrational turbulence here and my body is still not aware of the disaster! I supposed the stormy events in the present financial world... Although actually there is no such thing as stormy events right now. In fact, there is nothing but passiveness or asceticism. The financial crisis is a turbulent comedy of mistaken identity. It is the honest surprise of finding irrationality amidst pure rationality. But what has been mistaken then? There is nothing there! Absolutely nothing to be found! It smells like market fundamentalism! And it goes back to the Chicago School. The engine of the capitalist economy is based on self-referring communication. Prices do not refer to goods, but to other prices, which ultimately leads not to representation but to de-presentation of the world. In this comedy of mistaken identity, solvency and insolvency are the same; activity and asceticism, the difference between real and fictitious values become obsolete –indeed, at the latest since credit is made out of nothing. In the player the tragedy develops between two poles: belief and reality, with both of them simultaneously leading to the catastrophe. (René Pollesch)
