Debt disasters, crises, notorious Brussels-bashing: The scene tape around the monetary union, which may not prove as a union of values is flapping in the wind. The unloved Confederacy is drifting apart and we wave the handkerchief. Eternal fidelity, long-lasting relationships or great utopias, who dares believing? The public rearranges itself; traditional organizational concepts such as national parties and trade unions are losing cohesiveness. Even on a small scale, we do not want to commit and oblige, we do not want to stagnate in rigid structures. We celebrate the marriage of the individual and yet, we can not dance alone. In moments of personal discomfort, and the major political upheavals, we need each other. How can we manage to come together, without having to give up on our freedom? How do we get more citizen participation, without compromising the consensus? How do we obtain transparency without becoming transparent ourselves? In a fragmented world, looking for a unity of stragglers to shape the state of emergency, celebrate a festival.
