The democracy of the dead

Death has become virtue in our days. We all have to be democratic in not living. The more grave and unhappy, the more reliable a citizen you are…

Happy living is disturbing:”How do you dare? If I don´t live, why should you…?” This is the tacit message. If you take the risk of being joyful and alive, you are not serious, not trustworthy.

To fit the current expectations, we all have to be the same:


About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    I fully agree. When I watch people who ask me and I answer what I’m doing now. They want to know what kind of work I do and if it is on a socially high niveau. And, in addition, they’d like to know how much money I make per year.
    So even these questions are dead. They show exactly the condensed decadence of our being.
    When my answer “I do nothing, but I got plenty of spare time. I don’t need a lot of money any more. I’m quite happy and satisfied with this. Much more than ever before.” comes to those people, they don’t know how to deal with it. It is so extremely out of their sight. It doesn’t fit in our society at all.

    So, in summary, I’m not yet completely off this dead being, but the time periods when I’m alive are steadily increasing 🙂
