Democracy in the Age of the Post-religiousness

Foundations of Alternative Economics


Cezary J. Olbromski

One of the most original assumptions is that political actors are groups of thematized information. They effectively test the political, traditional sources of meaning, and reservoirs of identity. The post-religiousness of the presentness is transcendentally neutral; there is no contradiction between the transcendental and the immanent. Why and how relics steal into the political? The social does not create any meaning considerably stronger than the empty meanings of dedicated metaphysics and discourses, but the social creates itself within the totariental (total – poleless – disorienting). The book contains analyses of the implementation of political crises and crises of the political. In other words, two processes are simultaneously used by political actors in contemporary democracy. These tools are not only moderators of naturally spontaneous democracy. Economic, cultural, and political changes are pressed ahead by technically, sociologically and military equipped actors for whom democracy is efficient.

Hard–working people are workers of pseudo–in- tellectual factories of PR senses managed by Monsignors and its talebearers. Artificial division of the left and the right serves artificial construction being façade of real power of demoralised tops of churches. There are Third– World relationships in Poland (an anonymous author). Paradoxically, the most fundamental effect of connecting the idea of the wel- fare–state and idea of parliamentarism is connected with a lack of sharp diffe- rentiation between negative privileged groups and elites (cf. Beck 2002: 25–57, especially analyses of democracy of risk). In other words, there is a disappearing field of the game. Opposite character of ideas and manners of argumentation within the common is also deprived of the most fundamental field of dialogue. The political respecting legal/parliamentary opposition deprives opposite cha- racter of independence of thought and autonomy. Thanks to growing standard of life post–modern discourse not only deprives of theodicy of...
