God is Porco

Posting the term “inside dopester” for the first time on instagram on 05-02-2020 (and Facebook). The term got used by D. Riesmann in cited by Theodor Adorno in “Theorie der Halbbildung” (Theory of half-education) in 1959.

In economic sociology an INSIDE DOPESTER is an information collector, in D. Riesman’s name for a type of externally led person who faces political processes only as a consumer, collector of information, especially backdrop information, who counts among the well-educated, for himself sees no chance of own political action.

Click-bait Adorno 1959. The theory of half-education (Die Theorie der Halbbildung) has nothing to do with Italian swearing, but with reflecting the power of eductation and culture which, detached from practical impact, become gods without a consequence. „Halbbildung“ becomes a means of perception for advantages in the midst of the unsolicited bellum omnium contra omnes. It is the triumph of the inside-dopester, a term found in dictionaries of economy – somebody who knows something by consuming superficial info, but is not believing he/she can change anything. I hereby post this term for the first time on instagram, not excluding myself. But not finding it here so far is quite funny and can be taken as a warning. The Sudanese painting in the end and the cryptoworld have nothing to do with Adorno as well…or have they? Read the text, it is highly recommended and adviseable reflection for our times.
