The Comfort Zone
Breathing Freedom

(introduction 3)



Aren't we all already trapped in our own comfort zone, at least the generations that have been shaped by the "Western ideas of the world"? Who wants to imagine a world without the internet and smartphones? Too many already "play" with Alexa and pay without cash because it's so cool and convenient. Too many no longer dare to walk around a new city without google maps. All thinking is being outsourced. Too much trust in technology and progress - too little reflection on what technology and progress have really caused.

Where right becomes wrong, resistance becomes a duty

Revolt against the "green revolution (Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa)" 
10. July 2020, 18:22h, SZ, Sueddeutsche Zeitung:

"Farmers forced to abandon their mixed crops, nutrient-rich crops crowded out, smallholders ending up in debt: An investigation published on Friday delivers a damning verdict on the Bill and Melinda Gates-funded developmental agricultural alliance in Africa. The study concludes that the alliance has failed to achieve its own goals and that its corporate-driven approach is ineffective in ending hunger....Among the biggest donors are the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. The development organisation promised great things: by 2020, the private-public initiative, with which German development aid also cooperates, should halve food insecurity in 20 African countries and double the income and productivity of 30 million small farmers. This was to be achieved through a "green revolution": with licensed seeds, synthetic fertilisers and pesticides, and integration into global supply chains."

From (wheat)starch to wheat to war: Civilisation

Historically, civilisation was usually understood as a larger and more "advanced" culture. It was important to understand that the term civilisation had to be seen as the opposite of the term "barbarism". For only in this way could non-European societies be characterised as uncivilised.

It is said that cultures are what has grown historically. This is where their strength, their distinctiveness, and also their injustice comes from. When cultures become reflexive, civilisation emerges.

Civilisation - that is pacification and taming of cultures.

The task of "civilising" the subjugated peoples played a central role in the legitimising discourse on the colonialism of the great European powers.
This strategy of their own territorial expansion continues to be carried through.

Sovereignity and territorial integrity ...


But it ended up that we are all the storm, we cause it - with all our little daily desires.
With our desperate attempts to get out of our personal unhappiness. Still we want more, we always want something else. Even today, we can be made to feel that we need this or that. Advertising, manipulation is everywhere and the greed for everything is>
We have to free ourselves from this. Basically, we have to resist ourselves. That is the challenge. Being happy and satisfied is not something you achieve through hyperconsumption.
As the Invisible Committee wrote at the end of 2017:
"The destructive force of the revolutionary process can do nothing without that charge of quiet positivity inherent in any happy existence."
So the individual is addressed - it's about the question of happiness and new ways of living that enable the individual to escape the system. Refusal and silence instead of noisy proclamations. There will be no overthrow of the existing order without a commitment to a desirable life.

We have known this for almost two generations now. And it was seen coming, but successfully suppressed again and again.
And now it's here: the super disaster. The shelves are empty, the supply has come to a standstill, even though there is still a bit of production left. But resources are running out, the soil is drying out, the insects and bees are gone.

Nevertheless, you get even more happily shopping and consuming people on board.

But hyperconsumption is collapsing because it is eating itself up.
And now they are desperately looking for someone to blame. Time to think of fetish....
