no hope by scheinbar no hope by scheinbar
..."Das Abteil fast leer. Mir gegenüber eine rundliche Frau um die sechzig, wohl genährt, Pelzmantel, ausladendes Brillengestell, Klatschpostillen auf dem Schoß. Ihr Atem geht schwer, bald ist sie eingeschlafen, schnarcht. Ich lese und schaue aus dem Fenster. Soll ich sie wecken? Kurz vor Katowice beginnt sie zu reden, ohne mich dabei ein einziges Mal ins Auge zu fassen: Jahrgang 1942, geboren in Warschau, zwischen Kohlebriketts in einem viel zu kalten Keller, willkommen geheißen im Leben von rasselnden Wehrmachtsstiefeln, krank davon an Leib und Seele. Tränenschleier in den Augen. Der Moment, in dem mir - so unmittelbar wie nie zuvor - bewusst wird, wie sehr wir alle, Deutsche, Österreicher, Polen, Großväter, Mütter, Enkel ... versehrt worden sind von jenen mörderischen Jahren, ganz gleich, welche Schuld wir auf uns geladen oder ob wir uns überhaupt schuldig gemacht haben; wie sehr wir unter ihnen leiden, uns unter ihrer tausendfach beschwiegenen und doch so schreiend bedrückenden Last bis heute krümmen. Der "Führer" und seine willigen Helfer haben den Krieg verloren und das große Morden nicht vollendet. Ihr tausendjähriges Reich haben sie trotzdem errichtet. Verzweiflung, Hass und Trauer pumpen ihr Regime bis in unsere Leben hinein, prägen unser Denken, unser Fühlen, bewohnen unser Un- und Halbbewusstes bis heute. Da ist die Mutter, deren Mutter einst den "Untermenschen" liebte und dafrü zum Tode durch lebenslangen Mauschelmord verurteilt wurde, der noch heute ihre Kinder und Kindeskinder tief im Innern niederknüppelt; da ist der Enkel, der nicht fragen darf, warum der Großvater wieder ins Leere stiert, in den rauchschwarzen Himmel von Stalingrad, der sich in seinem Kopf Tag für Tag und in den schweißnassen Nächten über ihm zusammenbraut; da ist der Sohn, der den Vater nie sah, aber verzweifelt spürt, weil der mit seinem zerschossenen Gesicht nicht nur in der Steppe Russlands verscharrt liegt, sondern ein zweites Mal in den traurigen Augen der Mutter. Ein nimmer endender Phantomschmerz."...
Christian Dries, Nach Auschwitz, in Scheidewege, 40, S. 286

Danke Dir
Wir haben auch Verstand und Vernunft und die Möglichkeit zu Mitgefühl.
Warum können wir das denn nicht nutzen, mehr?

ich kann es auch nicht verstehen, bin immer
wieder geschockt wie dünn der lack der zivilisation ist,
wenn ich an afghanistan, irak, serbien, syrien usw. denke.
es passieren dinge, die nicht mehr in unsere welt passen.
das schlimme ist der verlust von empathie in weiten kreisen.
die ständige berieselung mit dummheit und brutalität zeigt wirkung.

HOPE written in this manner and these colors makes me feel NO hope, besides reading that there is none.
Well, I feel a rage and a loss somehow.
It gives me mixed feelings, but hard to explain them.
All relative to color and largeness. I like this.

Dear friend,
I have just listened to a lecture about a possible way out from our problems that has given me more reason to hope.
A sociologist explained how by enlarging our present social security system, which is a mutual organisation, to all our life and activity, we could get out of capitalism.
His idea is revolutionary in that makes a new way from a pre-existing one.
We don't need to break everything and shed blood.
I wish I could explain it to you. :)

It's Frenchman. I don't know if there is a book.
I watched a video of a public lecture/conference in Nancy University, where he explained. His name is Bernard Friot.

Very simply his idea is this.

Our social security is not based on capitalism. It is a mutual to which everyone who works is obliged to contribute. The money is not placed at the stock exchange. It is distributed immediately to people who have retired and to people who are ill, etc.

He says that if we took the money that goes to investors and dividends and did the same thing as for the mutual, we could have enough to invest and to pay everyone a life long salary from 18 to death. We don't need capitalist investors. We do the work and they don't.
We must stop thinking of work as something that people with a job do. It's what we all do through our adult life.

The right to have this life long salary would be linked to people's qualifications, with not very big differences from top to bottom, and would be linked to the person and not to the job.
It's not the same as a universal benefit.

He gave some examples of how work, that people used to do, has been taken over and controlled by capitalism.
Some years ago nurses in hospitals were nuns, religious women who were not paid. (They lived in a convent and community which looked after them.)
Also grandparents, ( and mothers as well ) looked after children. Now it's a job you have to pay for.
The social value of the work these people did has been confiscated by capitalism.

His ideas were more complex than this but of course I can' t explain them all.
He said we can build on something good that we all ready have, and mustn't be pessimistic.

Of course his ideas need to be well known, but with time ... perhaps.

I hope this is not to difficult. :D

Yes, that's the problem. It seems to need force, perhaps violence, to take companies from the capitalists.

Well anyway ideas often take a long time to becomes reality. It is better to hope than to weep.

Ist die Aussage von dem Bild jetzt "No Hope" - im Sinne von "All Hope is Gone" (was dann ziemlich gut getroffen wäre :D) oder genau umgekehrt? :)

no hope
letztendlich bei allem krampfhaften festhalten an hoffnungsvollen gedanken
