Re: <nettime> nettime-l Digest, Vol 64, Issue 14: never meet A.Swartz


That said, sadly J.Swift discovered this "remote part of the world" 
ages ago. The Hounhyms and their slaves (curiously named: YAHOOS) 
represent a "desire of death"-metanation. Who has the stomach to read 
the latest pages of (uncensored) Gulliver's travels can understand what 
is the "pure-reason utopia".
SaintSimon, Comte, Heine and the left wing hegelians (Ruge, Strauss, 
Feuerbach and Bauer) understood very well that those "reasons" are part 
of aan historical process that makes salary ("nature")  in hard 
opposition of capital ("reason": thanks, Kant, Croce, ecc....). The two 
guys Friedrich and Karl carried those considerations in scientific, 
then irreversible, moods. Everyone that doesn't realize behind smiles 
and rethorics are monsters, and prefers not to close his hearthdoors to 
those methaphysics, antihistorical puppets and their bosses,  is a 
martyr.
It happened to Carlo Michelstaedter: and here is a worse remake. Where 
the responsabilities? Not on the monsters' side. Those golems are "the 
objectivity", not subjects. They prepare another Dresda show for 
another Vonnegut's sad-siren story.
