A few days ago, near where we live, a cyclist was run over by a truck from the city of Vienna and killed. A tragic accident, a shocking event. All residents are shaken to this day. Now there is a so-called “ghost bike”, a white bicycle, at the scene of the accident. In an attached propaganda poster, an anonymous initiative informs us not only about their grief, but also about their anger and anger because of the inadequate bicycle infrastructure in the city of Vienna.
Apart from the fact that I can no longer hear this talk of anger and anger, with which some, especially left-wing alternative people, stage their involuntary feelings that come and go, whether you like it or not, as a special existential achievement, This shows once again how insolently the misfortune and the tragedy of human existence are being abused by political interest groups without shame. And it also shows that every random event in human everyday life is immediately interpreted and addressed as a failure of the collective. The narcissistic postmodern person obviously cannot deal with the tragic coincidences of life, needs someone to blame for everything immediately and obviously imagines in all seriousness that it is in the power of the state and society to organize life in such a way that risk, chance and unwanted tragedies are ruled out once and for all.
The situation is very similar with the currently rampant expert mischief regarding the Covid-19 crisis. Virologists in particular, who spend their entire lives in the laboratory working with substances that cause clear and characteristic reactions in certain combinations, believe that they have inevitable knowledge with which human coexistence can be clearly and unambiguously determined and regulated. However, a society does not function according to scientific standards, it is a contingent system that is dominated by randomness. This system rests on a multitude of spontaneously and stubbornly acting individuals, so one can only calculate in advance or even steer and guide one’s course of development to a limited extent.
At the moment it seems as if the spontaneous autonomous individual is the great scandal of our time for the expert mainstream and left totalitarians. What Lenin, Stalin and Hitler wanted to stifle the stubborn individual in a willless and thus easily steerable collective is now beginning to shine through more and more than the great goal behind the chaotic and completely incompetent Covid policy of the elites. If the individual was previously considered the most important productive force of liberal capitalism, the successful Chinese model obviously shows that the uncomplaining mass of the “many” forms an even more functional basis for economic growth and elite reproduction. While parts of the elite are now trying to transfer the Chinese model to our society, they are showing that the autonomous individual was never an ideal value to them, but merely a functional productive force, which one is now trying to get rid of because a mass society of the Chinese type is seems to prove more useful in reproducing power and economic privilege.
The “Momentum Institute” is an important pillar for the self-preservation of the trade union and left-wing elites. This is where the ideology is produced that is used to maintain the privileges system of the union bosses. After 1945, the unions were built based on the organizational culture of the illegally operating revolutionary socialists. In times of illegality, clear hierarchical, military organizational structures are necessary. It is precisely these structures that are still dominated by the trade unions today. At its head, similar to the Politburo of the SED, is a small leadership circle that redistributes power and privileges among itself in power struggles that flare up again and again. The Momentum Institute maintains this leadership circle for the purpose of binding the “many” ideologically to the ÖGB and to disguise the selfish intentions of the union leadership.
Barbara Blaha is the head of the institute. She comes from the staunchly left VSStÖ and left the SPÖ in the course of the debate about tuition fees, but has continued to move skillfully in her environment and is still waiting for the chance to get into a leadership position in the party. Once she almost succeeded when the failed chairman Christian Kern wanted to make her head of the Renner Institute.
There was a wild tug-of-war in the search committee, in which Blaha opponent Alfred Gusenbauer was able to prevail. Blaha, a red rag for Gusenbauer, was rejected. Instead, the left-wing ideologist Maria Maltschnig was put on the bill, whereupon the current mayor of Vienna, Ludwig, stepped down as a member of the commission. Maria Maltschnig is so far to the left that she allegedly even refused to invite the former German Minister of the Interior, Schily, because he is a rightist for her. So much for the definition of right and left in the SPÖ.
After an interlude at a publisher, Blaha ended up in the care of the ÖGB. There she deals with the formulation of an authoritarian policy for the “many”, which includes, for example, advocating compulsory vaccination against Covid-19. As in China, they apparently want people who are afraid of the invasive procedure to be driven to the vaccination doctor with draconian punishments.
One quickly thinks of Olaf Scholz, who, as Hamburg’s Senator for the Interior, was able to live out his authoritarian character by enabling the executive to treat drug dealers who swallowed their goods with an emetic. The Nigerian Achidi Johns died during forcible treatment in which a probe for “securing evidence” was forcibly inserted through his nose.
Such practices are common in China. There the alleged ends of the “many” justify every means. History teaches that the rise of the abstraction of the “many” is always the end of the real autonomous individual. Anyone who appeals to the “many” is pursuing nothing other than the suspension of the individual. “Skeptical of what is, always in the interests of the many” is the motto of the “Momentum Institute”. In fact, this means: “Skeptical of the autonomous individual, in the interests of a left-wing political and trade union elite oriented towards personal gain”.
