ABC of BSJs

The shooting … Of course, critique is critical in such a moment, and criticising too, if not even reprehensible.

“We must move forward. This is why the European Parliament keeps working.”
It all comes down to a battle of ideas, in which society needs to demonstrate that there is value in freedom, democratic institutions, the free and peaceful expression of ideas, fundamental rights. We need a resilient democracy. And we need a strong Europe.
The show, as they say, must go on.

These are the words from
The Brief – The show must go on by  Alexandra Brzozowski, posted on the 12th of Dezember, at 17:02
The morning of the 12th I had been given a public lecture, titled
Towards the end of the presentation I suggested an ABC of such jobs – or to be more precise, of an economy that boosts such jobs or tasks
managing not by but as doing – the ABC of BSJs:

ppointments, a packed calendar, provide glory

oosting the number of completed forms increases security and replaces proper management

apital is reinterpreted: being the thing in itself, it’s increase is the main thing, even if such increase results from the factual deception of increased amount of input of labour as operand – simply as figure
All show, all glimmer, all appearance, spectacle …
Doesn’t it make more sense to emphasise the need of a move to serious work, beyond the show:
  • beyond and different to sham activities?
  • beyond a bureaucratisation that is searching for justification by remaining self-reflective, not oriented on dealing with people’s and peoples’ life?
  • beyond the glamour of GDP-growth, aiming on sustainable production but also inclusive ways of determining what to produce and how to organize it?
I guess we all need LESS show and more genuine engagement and solid spheres to engage. May be it would be a kind of revolution against le roi, the new king.
