    national states the rise of anti German hatred the growth of fascist parties in Greece Italy Hungary Finland and elsewhere From the bankanization submission of Europe to the interests of the banking system to the balkanization proliferation of nationalist and ethnic conflicts leading to the specter of continental civil war The black hole of financial abstraction is swallowing social resources and destroying the productive potency of the general intellect while the social civilization is invested and corroded by the metastases of the financial cancer It is now clear that economic expansion is over and will never come back Un growth is no longer a moral or political choice that we can accept or refuse In Europe Un growth is a given a consequence of the global redistribution of the division of labor and the exhaustion of natural resources If our future is synonymous with Growth our future is dead But we should be able to change our expectations to disentangle our notions of the good life from the capitalist expectation of never ending Growth to imagine a future outside of progress The financial dictatorship is cutting salaries and increasing work time But by growing unemployment and spreading recession they also make it possible for us to transform Un growth into an enrichment of life and our collective pleasure A huge wave of protest is on the horizon but the traditional forms of activism have exposed their ineffectiveness demonstrations strikes peaceful protests are ineffective because financial power now derives from disembodied dynamics which are untouchable by the physical bodies of our movement Only organized withdrawal only massive insolvency can defuse the financial attack and this requires solidarity And solidarity can only be based on empathy How can we recreate solidarity in an era when precariousness has transformed us into de personalized

    at hand which are urgently pressing up towards the surface of mass consciousness Here are such reflections from Pink Floyd s Roger Waters Consider carefully what he has to say about the state of humanity and our apprehension of ourselves Thirty years ago when I wrote The Wall I was a frightened young man Well not that young I was 36 years old It took me a long time to get over my fears Anyway in the intervening years it has occurred to me that maybe the story of my fear and loss with its concomitant inevitable residue of ridicule shame and punishment provides an allegory for broader concerns nationalism racism sexism religion whatever All these issues and isms are driven by the same fears that drove my young life The new production of The Wall is an attempt to draw some comparisons to illuminate our current predicament and is dedicated to all the innocent lost in the intervening years In some quarters among the chattering classes there exists a cynical view that human beings as a collective are incapable of developing more humane i e kinder more generous more cooperative more empathetic relationships with one another I disagree In my view it is too early in our story to leap to such a conclusion We are after all a very young species I believe we have at least a chance to aspire to something better than the dog eat dog ritual slaughter that is our current response to our institutionalized fear of each other Roger Waters is an English musician singer song writer and composer He was a founding member of Pink Floyd serving as bassist co lead vocalist and after the departure of bandmate Syd Barrett in 1968 Waters became the band s lyricist principal songwriter and conceptual
