The Kabarett of the Kynics. Satirical Peace Activism in an Era of Enlightened False Consciousness?
»›We‹, the ›enlightened‹ peace students; the ›informed public‹ might even have a good feeling to be involved in do-good NGOs and other help-the-world groups that shout out loud: Kill Kony 2012! Free Syria! Free Africa! Free Kuwait! Free Tibet! Free Libya! -- Free Pizza! But it is us who do fulfil the most cynic notion of a contemporary cynic. In both its contextual and contentual orientation, ›The Kabarett of the Kynics‹ will be presented as a holistic mode that directly affects the style of writing and the variety of illuminating examples from society’s daily life: While asking for the hidden cynic and Kynic elements within a howsoever perceived era of enlightened false consciousness, the reader will be invited to a journey full of stream of consciousness which will be enriched by a Kabarett-esk topic diversity that reaches from critically reflected military cynicism on the global scale to thrown-away food on the local scale, from the seemingly too big to the seemingly too small. And back.«»... and so on.«
