Why does it seem that public discourse on certain issues is no longer possible? Neither in the media nor among the normal population?
It is a shared hunch. A common repressed knowledge that they have.
They know that so much is wrong. They just repress it and want it to remain socially repressed.
Why do they repress this knowledge?
They are at least fed up and secure with the way things are now. And they are simply afraid of all the millions of Will Smiths suddenly waking up and no longer playing the beautiful game of appearances. And when they all then stand up to publicly defend the institutionally trampled feminine – in the world and also in themselves. Lifting the veil of consensus of ignoring and also accepting, so that no one can say they don’t know anymore. Claim he would not know about the barbaric inhuman social order that desecrates the feminine, the spiritual in all of us and in the world. And then no one can go back…
They are afraid of what will come then.
But to defend does not mean to use violence. It means turning away. The millions of Will Smiths do not go from pain to active rage and strike. They demonstratively leave the hall, in full view of everyone, and return from their pain to their inner security. Into love. Also to Chris Rock. If enough do that, then all the Chris Rocks of this world will have to perform in a different way…
But if the Will Smiths take the path of counter-violence, then, yes, then they are on the defensive and have to apologise and atone in tears for their – public, not permitted because openly visible – violence. That is the way that does not work. Just as little as sitting and laughing. Because that is what is expected: that we allow ourselves to be hurt and remain sitting and laughing. And maybe there’ll be a golden thing for that and applause from the others who are sitting there, hurting themselves and suffering themselves and laughing, laughing, laughing until the tears come. The bitter black tears.
