In the english word "revolution," there is in reverse, the word "love". It's also known by the designers of the book that is making headlines, "Revolution," by the British artist, Russell Brand.
Brand is not affraid to be provokative and make attacks the modern social order where it hurts- at their beloved habits. He dissects them in his book and theater program, with loving rowdiness.
Brand's book is a worthy read because of his criticism of society with love like Rudolf Steiner, starting with the experience that how we see the world makes an impression of what we think is right and proper. The book is also based on a spiritual understanding. An English article takes a closer look, as well as, "The Capitalism in Us". An essay that shows that to sleep in a society that idiolizes profitable actions can be subversive. Also Harald Welzer writes about the possibility to combine growth ideology and frugality.
Philip Kovce explained on "German-Radio Culture," what the basic income has to do with liberalism.
That an aesthetic experience can be misunderstood, is written about article from Byung-Chul Han, who draws a connection between smooth skin, smooth art and smooth politics: there's nothing more the human being can hold onto.
Be aware of the Conference on "Aesthetic as an Entrance to Social Phenomena" from November 28th-30th, 2014 at the Goetheanum.
