Seven Lies

Post yr be aware: First released January 1st 2005

Stefan Vogel, a tender guy turning out to be up within the former East Germany, longs for romance, glory and freedom - yearnings that specific themselves in a lifelong delusion of going to the United States. The hopeless son of an bold mom and a sort yet unfortunate diplomat, Stefan lurches among his budding, covert pursuits - women and Romantic poetry - to discover himself embroiled in dissident politics, which oddly turns out to provide both.

In time, by way of a chain of blackly comedian and more and more harmful manoeuvres, he contrives to make his myth come actual, discovering himself not just within the nation of his goals, but in addition married to the girl he idolises. the US turns out every thing he anticipated and in the meantime his secrets and techniques are adequately locked away in the back of the Berlin Wall.

A new lifetime of unbounded bliss turns out to were granted to him. after which that existence starts to crumble. ..

Sample text

33 Thinking hard about the real-life effects of antisemitism under Hitler is not, in Meinhof’s view, what is really needed — the realities of the Shoah seem to take a back seat to “administrative measures” against her foster mother Riemeck. ” column she had deliberately used an item of Nazi vocabulary to characterize political practice in West Germany: the verb gleichschalten, which described Hitler’s policy of forcing institutions and individuals to toe the political line. The word returns as a noun in her column of August 1966, “Joachim Fest oder die Gleichschaltung” (Joachim Fest or Gleichschaltung).

Even without its reference to a contemporary right-wing politician the article is provocative — not least because Meinhof appears to include her readers (the “you” of the title) but not herself in the ranks of those within whom the spirit of Hitler lives on. At the time of writing the Eichmann trial was in progress; it is mentioned in a cursory manner. But the focus is on developing her metaphor: namely, that those (like herself) who oppose current mainstream politics are Germany’s new Jews: in the contemporary context, she tells us, anyone who criticizes antisemitism must “speak up for freedom wherever it is currently under threat” (“wer den Antisemitismus geißelt, muß der Freiheit, wo sie heute bedroht ist, das Wort reden”).

She routinely employs what philosophers call “useful fictions,” which overlap with what literary critics call “metaphor” or in some cases “personalization”: the technique of associating one thing with another. That may be harmless (if I call you a lamb, or a gene “selfish”) or dangerous (if I say you are a plague or its carrier and should be destroyed). The danger goes beyond the individual: we need to take the caution to heart that “this kind of useful fiction is perilous. . too much talk of selfish genes or purpose in evolution can lead people to mistake fictions for facts.
