On the 19. In September 1995, appeared in the New York Times and the Washington Post, a Text called "Industrial Society and its Future" (in English: "The industrial society and its future"). A man wrote that we should, based on what, in his opinion, the modern society, the development of technology, namely, destroy it. In it, he argued, would be the biggest disaster in the world.
That the two Newspapers published the Text, was not because they found him so impressive, but the fact that the author wrote, if they did, would he let a bomb explode "with the intent to kill". The FBI identified the man as the "Unabomber", a terrorist who had killed up to this time three people and 23 injured – and advised the Newspapers to the publication of the Manifesto.
the Text of The "Unabombers" is probably the most famous example of the 20th century. Century for a Manifest to be not only a theory of society, but also a Declaration of war. The concept was not new, earlier political or artistic Manifestos, utopias and revolutions have requested, to enforce, if necessary, with violence. But hardly any of it was bound up to this point so directly to an act of violence, such as the Times and the Post printed an excerpt.
A Terrorist who's blackmailing Newspapers to carry his Agenda in the world, it seems, at the latest, after the events in new Zealand last week – incredibly long ago. People like the assassin of Christchurch today are no longer dependent on traditional media houses. You take a camera and spread your act on Facebook. Live so that all watching can. You do this for an audience that is accustomed to the mass of the distributed images and Videos in the network the pick the it see or not see.
"consider yourself very, very clever"
As was the widespread violence, he sent in his pictures in the world, not enough has been said, the assassin of Christchurch, its still a "Manifesto", the new Zealand Prime Minister. In the 74-page Text, which deals mainly with the alleged "White genocide", is to read the racist view of the world and the justification of a person who wants to give the impression to be a murderer, but a very socially competent, far-sighted, and intellectually (especially the "Non-Europeans") in the superior man. The Text recalls in his style – similar to the "role models" to which he refers, the extreme right-wing assassin Anders Breivik and Dylann Roof – a frantically-written seminar work. In order to make the Pathos perfectly, preceded him a poem by Dylan Thomas.
Unusual this way, don't be self-Declaration, declared the political scientist Peter Neumann. "The people who commit these acts, and this Manifests to write, all for a very, very smart."
but Why publish an assassin at all these Scriptures, if you go to your pictures and Videos that was supposedly what you wanted to achieve – your world on view in the Form of the destruction of other people, live on smartphone screens? What sense can have, if you would like to speak to in connection with an assassination attempt at all of meaning, a "forward" of the Text?
"unfolds, A terrorist attack is its political effect only if you make a statement. Without a terrorist Agenda the act is a political act, not at all effective," says Neumann. Manifests as the assassin of Christchurch would show the spirit in which the act was committed. "It was, among other things, what has baffled the security agencies in the NSU: There's a lot of people have been killed and no one has made a statement."
The so-called "Propaganda of the deed", violence as a means of communication and mobilisation so, it seems to rely at least in part still on the written word. War, programmatic Manifestos have a long Tradition. In the 19th century. Century about, there was claim of responsibility of Russian anarchists, in which the assassin of the Tsar wrote to their motives. The texts were then, as now, the function of the Public understand what should be the purpose of the stop. And to spread fear and terror. Both of which happened in Christchurch on the impact of the images, without that the bombers have much to say.
The effect of "inside" is the decisive factor
But, and this is particularly in right-wing extremism is striking: the effect of The text "inside" the Key, explains the historian and Professor of history at the University of Bielefeld, Gisela Diewald-Kerkmann. "It is not just a matter of making it clear what is the concept of this movement. It comes to find imitators in the environment, samples to show a link with the movement."
You can find these thoughts in the bombers in the recent past published writings – they relate to each other and heroically each other such as in an absurd fan club. "This confirmation is a very important point," says Diewald-Kerkmann, "the recognition within the movement and the desire that others should live up to the assassin."
A Text to a plot, such as in Christchurch unfolds on the Foundation on which it is based, supposedly, on a different Dimension than just "fear and terror", which will be distributed over the images. He is the bed for the Propaganda of the deed, which allows radicalisation and finds extremists audience in the virtual subcultures of the law. "Manifest" like that of Christchurch, those who allegedly wants to listen to nobody, an inner stage, can offer no Video and no image – with the help of which you appeal to exactly the people you want to reach.
