Reality-based communities

US-Journalist Ron Suskind erzaehlt, was im ein senior adviser George W. Bushs erklaert hat:

„The aide said that guys like me were ‚in what we call the reality-based community,‘ which he defined as people who ‚believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality‘. I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ‚That’s not the way the world really works any more,‘ he continued. ‚We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.'“

Es wird Zeit, die Definitionsmacht ueber die Wirklichkeit zurueck zu erkaempfen. Mit den USA geht’s mir so ähnlich wie Robert Misik.
