Most of us drink coffee not because we have a finely calibrated understanding of its role in blocking the adenosine that makes us feel tired and increasing the dopamine that makes us feel good. Instead, we drink coffee because we have adopted (in part from the coffee business itself) a way of understanding ourselves and the world that makes it look like a godsend when we have no choice but to keep working—or even the fulfillment, for a moment, of our bottomless desire for more ideas, more talk, more energy, more time, more life.

Payback Normalität.

Dafür muss sich die EU nur mal an ihre viel beschworenen Werte erinnern: die Menschenrechte, das Recht auf Leben, auf einen Asylantrag, die Pflicht von Seeleuten, Menschen aus Seenot zu retten. Auch wenn das dem diametral entgegenläuft, was Demagogen wie Salvini, Kurz und ein Heimat-Horst verbreiten.


Normal ist für mich, dass Menschen Berufe wahrnehmen, die für viele von uns wichtig sind. Aber keiner muss Payback-Punkte sammeln, Nestlé-Produkte kaufen, Tierprodukte essen oder mit einem riesigen SUV durch die Stadt fahren. Wenn wir aufhören würden, so viel falsch zu machen, müsste es nicht so viele Leute geben, die das wieder geradebiegen.

None of this defines me. But if you think it hasn’t shaped me, hasn’t made me make rules for myself my whole life, hasn’t shaped how I view other women, and myself, and men... if you think it hasn’t shaped my ambitions (for good and for bad), or the way I vote, or what I see when I look in the mirror — I’m guessing you’re a man.

There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it — that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!

Mario Savio


What other people go through in this patriarch society must be much worse. [...] I didn't expect it at all. Me, a person who is rather someone who is thinking about the worst-case-scenario first (not necessarily caring so much about it then).
