Margarethe von Trotta’s latest film Hannah Arendt is disturbing in a positive way. It makes us aware of where our society is heading. Though we live in democracies, one can feel that the anxiety grows. People seems to be intensly more afraid of having the “wrong” opinions. Espacially in issues that matters and demand a personal reflection. I’m thinking of religion, arts and politics. We should be grateuful to von Trotta and her worthseeing film about a very important political theorist.
At my childhoods playground, in the shadow of the watchtowers, someone tried to make me redundant. That’s happening to refugees today! In wealthy communities! Perhaps especially there?
Where are the redundant? Everywhere? Nowhere? When we see them, we see our disgrace!
