The Enemy is Authoritarianism
The Enemy is Authoritarianism
Looking deeper at the Israel-Hamas war and what we're all actually fighting for.
authoritarianism, an ideology that insisted on the the idea that humans do not have inherent worth outside of their subservience to a larger system, leader, and/or goal.
It also applies to things like parenting, where parents “set rigid rules with no explanation, and expect their children to obey them without question or face severe punishment. Children follow these rules because they know there are consequences if they don’t.”
The argument goes, “Yes, you have problems. We, the powerful who control your life, are on your side. And we have the answer for the root of any and all your problems: this group. They are your enemy. Focus all your energies there.”
Authoritarianism is a spectrum and a process: it is not static.
the point is that while they are different in scope and severity, they are all rooted in the belief system of authoritarianism.
There must always be an enemy to destroy or oppress. There must always be a new crisis.
antisemitism is part of “almost all extremist ideologies and narratives.”
however, it is the authoritarian impulse and belief system that is even more dangerous than antisemitism.
in an authoritarian world, there is a need for constant crises. War is inherent in authoritarianism.
authoritarianism is maximalist: either you buy in, you’re subservient, or you’re dead.
And the core problem, the destruction of internal autonomy, gets worse and worse.

This is all there is
This is all there is
as the people who make objects, we have a profound responsibility. A responsibility to not take for granted the limited time that each of us has in this world. A responsibility to make that time as beautiful, as comfortable, as painless, as empowering, and as delightful as possible though the experiences that we craft. Because this is all there is. And it’s up to us to make it better.

Mein Freund Floh
Mein Freund Floh
West-Berlin Ende der 80er Jahre: Zusammen mit zwei Freunden gründet der junge, charismatische Floh eine Band. Doch kurz vor dem Durchbruch lässt Floh seine Bandkollegen sitzen und verschwindet. Er verlässt Berlin, wo er sich von Nazis bedroht fühlt. Der wahre Grund wird erst sehr viel später klar. Philip Meinhold erzählt die Geschichte seines Jugendfreundes Floh Roth, einer Band, die groß hätte rauskommen können – und einer psychischen Erkrankung, die viel zu lange nicht erkannt worden ist. "Mein Freund Floh" – eine vierteilige radioeins-Podcastserie von Philip Meinhold. Alle Folgen werden ab dem 21. Januar 2022 veröffentlicht.
