‘WorShip”

“M” 2013

What makes a univocal society of desire demonstrate a
turnover to populism? Well not a universal one but watching the news somebody
could easily think “they all are fascists over there”

I am wondering who isn’t though?

What does this term stand for?

Is it a political theory ?

I recall Anti-Oedipus authored by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Oedipus

In the preface edited by Michel Foucault in a few lines one can comprehend the deeper schizophrenia of capitalism which could be
entitled as the actual core of absolutism

…“fascism in us all, in our heads and in our everyday behavior, the fascism that causes us to love power, to desire the very thing
that dominates and exploits us.”…

On the other hand a film by Fritz Lang. The “M” released in 1931.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M_(1931_film)

The scene of Beckert’s
monologue in the kangaroo court set by “the people” unveils the reality, as
later on is concentrated in Elsie’s mother phrase “All of you”…

We all are responsible
for such demonstrations of social extremity, regardless of the social class.

I know it’s difficult to
accept this system’s injustice -I can’t- but notions like this are of minimum
tightness and can easily be relativized.

What could we do? Legitimize
the existing political status quo and disregard extremities thus feeling happy
and carry on? I would suggest claiming no representatives as such and
reinstitute democracy by not accepting a constitution that serves the high rank
but one for the multitude.

This work is dedicated to Fotis Diplas a homeless guy we met that night.
