DEMOCRAZY

HOW TO PEEL AN ONION WITHOUT CRYING

On the autonomy of decision in all its facets: within the context of democracy, freedom and hedonistic society in combination with teasers, questions and observations of power structures.

Long live the freedom of choice! On a daily basis we may choose from a large variety of available options. Blonde or brunette, green red or black, TV or illegal download, papaya or mango. Everything is available; there is a countless amount of options.

Imagine a decision is represented by an onion. Would then every layer stand for one option? What if one removes these layers/options gradually? Would one then come closer to one’s inner self? Most important, can one peel this onion without crying? Who is in charge of determining the parameter? Why should a decision be described as an onion, anyway? Do we really have a freedom of choice or is somebody else deciding on us? 

 

Will anybody dare to question these parameters by stating that the decision is not an onion, but rather a pear; maybe even claim that a decision actually is a pear? What effect does this have in our present democracy: isn’t every onion a pear?
