Ok, somehow we like the Obama Idea. Suddenly a saviour appears, amidst the biggest crisis ever. People still think there is a way out. And there is a way out: but the way out is preceded by a hard paradigmatic change. The markets can’t expand anymore. Our ways of living have to change. The worldwide saturation with goods has reduced China to a dumb toothless plastic tiger. Faking the possibility of recovering and getting back to the state of happiness with consumption is just a lie. Some “O”-Quotes:

“We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.” Really? How?

“The only way this century will be another American century is if we confront at last the price of our dependence on oil and the high cost of health care; the schools that aren’t preparing our children and the mountain of debt they stand to inherit. That is our responsibility.” Another American century? Fuck no!

“Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.” Oh, please!

I don’t know why we like Mr. Obama. But he shouldn’t be confounded by some weird advisors. The truth is that we won’t recover, that we won’t overcome this crisis. But live will continue and maybe the Berlin way could be used as an example. Berlin is, was and will always be poor (but sexy). And what once was a different model of living could be a way out for humanity? It is hard to recognize that politics has no idea how to get out of this mess. But there is no need to lie. Let’s be honest, we knew that politics never served the people and therefore we never expected solutions, so don’t sell cheap philosophy. Just don’t lie. Be honest or do what your predecessors did. Nothing.
Consumerism has come to an end – a real chance to change for good. To measure with quality, not quantity… Let’s get things started Mr. O!
