Ulrich Renz over the gluck performance in our society
Throughocomancised society and their work spirit is the subject of the book tyranny of the work of Ulrich Renz. Telepolis talked to the physician about the mantra of politics, economics, media and elites.
Mr. Renz, how do you explain the high priority of work in this country?
Ulrich Renz: There are several factors and developments together. On the one hand, the specific German working ethos with its emphasis on the Protestant cardinal cups of flibes and performance. Hard work has a splendor in this country, which she does not have in the rather Catholic countries. This comes as a newer development, a fundamental vision of the company. The virtually automatic income increases are of the past, until the middle class turns into relegation, the social mobility has decreased, the underlayer is perspectiveless because ever. Just as the east was de facto by reunification, one fears to be remedied in the West by globalization. The German life in a permanent crisis-firing – and reactingly reactingly reacts with even rough motivation. Work is something like the solid anchor in stormy times. It is interesting that this grassy crisis gun is in blatant contrast to the actual economic situation. Germany is very economically conceivable well segregated by this transition times, also by the financial and euro crisis. Only in a single year was a shrinkage of the economy to see 0.75 percent. We are export world champion and europachampion. The company is shiny. But anyway, the basic feeling of the population is: we have to make an effort to afford even more, because we have the Chinese in the neck. The crisis rhetoric is ultimately part of the general mobilization we are currently experiencing. It comes to economics and politics quite well when the population says to have more effort.

Ulrich Renz: Under Mobilization, I understand that more and more human energies are steered in the economy – so where they bring profit. The employment rate is driven up to ever new records, never stood in German history as many people in work controls as currently. Mother should now reduce their baby hot to a minimum, and from other countries young people are recruited, ensuring their qualifications in this country profitable, even if they are painful in their homewarers. Today, a full-time employee is working on average a small hour long in the week when he has done that 15 years ago, namely 43 hours. For the first time, a trend reversed, which has been borne by one and a half centuries, that by now the working days of people became increasingly short. And as well, for the first time since the sewings of the industrial revolution, the life working time is rising again. A teenager who is at the beginning of his professional life today becomes about 10.000 hours long at work be as his father or his mother. But that’s just the purely quantitative side of mobilization. Labor has also adopted another quality. People must now have more ranclots. Working has become harder, poet, more intense. Tyrannical – to say it with the term from my book. The introduction of Hartz IV plays a role here?
Ulrich Renz: Yes, of course. The Schroder reforms were in the core yes nothing but a price reduction for little qualified work. It is only logical that demand has risen and the low-wage sector has been influenced. With the result that many people can not live from their work anymore …
Ulrich Renz: Yes, our society has been manoved in a paradoxical and stamina situation: the economy has won strongly like a bodybuilder under anabolic steroids, but from his job to renew a family for a rough part of the workers became a utopia, which one at best still knows from the repayments of early days.
