New broadcast from the “polite hackers” (yes, that’s what they call us). That reminded us of a trip to Ljubljana we made 10 years ago to talk to Slavoj Žižek about George W. Bush and politeness—at that time nobody could imagine a more badly-mannered President than the son of Bush Senior. And Slavoj said: “The typical Henry James situation is that people are lost and find themselves in a situation where they can’t rely on old rules. The only thing that saves them from chaos is superficial politeness. I deeply agree with that. The problem with Bush was he wasn’t polite … In politeness, I like the aspect of alienation. If we would meet somewhere on the street, we would say: 'Hello, nice to see you! How are you?' And who knows, maybe I'm in a bad mood and think: 'Why did I encounter that idiot?' … There is no freedom without politeness.” 

Take note: the only thing which saves us from chaos is superficial politeness! 

This week with Hannah Wood, Otis Sloan Brittain, Salum Mshamu, Lorenz von Seidlein & Jakob Brandtberg Knudsen (with their marvelous Malaria Houses in Tanzania)

You’ll find more about the hack in the "About" section. And: this has something to do with the Danish / German friendship year! More soon…
