Scrounge – a cultural technique is lost

Sometimes we grieve things, although we approve of their Disappearance. I know women who regret not fur more carry, even though you find it true that animal abuse is fought. The Zurich high school students may regret that they can no longer jet off for the project weeks after Rom, even if you have rode the flight ban yourself in the first place. And I don't regret the fact that my friends smoke cigarettes, even if I have to your health.

of Course, the E-cigarette, you draw instead, health is also not above all doubt. For young people they may be even more dangerous because they tempt you with strawberry flavor and Cookies fragrance. My only Regret is that the steam engine supplanted the Fags, not because of the but considerations of Risk. Rather, I miss the rituals, the Smoking friends in my life.

it begins with the Smoking of endless meetings broke beneficial. If discussions circled for hours to the same point, provided the smoke pause, the endless loop is often the decisive impulse. That breaks are important, although in each of the Management counselor. However, since they demand no Smoking, non-stop sat. "I need to go VAPE", calls for none. In addition, the smoke break had a clear duration. No matter whether you went out on a Cigarette or a Zigi remained: They knew what the deal was. The steam ritual, however, has no clear end. To take a break with a steaming, is therefore, a break of unknown duration. But, mostly, I mourn the Bum. As I admired the Smoking!

Elementary communism

someone Had no tobacco, you asked shamelessly other Smoking a cigarette. You Stand in a group Smoking, joined soon added to this Tilt with you willingly shared Cigarette and fire. With the E-cigarettes, the Scrounging is over. Think once, someone would ask: "Can I also device some steam?" Quite unthinkable. The steam device is highly personal. And who knows, whether you like the corresponding Liquid? Passion fruit, milk shake or the Mint, the Smoking experience is completely individualized.

The Bum – with all the ambiguity that resides in the Smoking – always something Fascinating to me: The smoker wasted no prospect of Return. The anthropologist David Graeber referred to the Buy of cigarettes in his book "debt" as an expression of "basic communism". So how do we stop each other, the door or a heavy suitcase help, without expecting a counter-gift, we're giving away Cigs with no hope of compensation. Ultimately, the glue of society, was Graeber says: that we are willing to help each other, if it costs us too much and the other is in desperate need of something.

All are dependent on each other

the Bum as a cultural technology Is to save, if there are smokers? The small-money bums a coin, however, is not equally glad to give it away like a cigarette. Because, secretly, one of the Schnorr does the end of suffering: to money no one should have to beg. Communism as "the raw material of life", of which Graeber speaks, is rooted in the recognition of the fact that we are all instructed at times to each other. But few of us will ever have to ask: "Your mr s Stutz?" Maybe we could move on to scrounge chewing gum and to ask for the garlic-heavy lunch, passers-by: "Your mr en Schigg?"

graves assumes, however, be a fundamental of communism not only attack if the Need is of sufficiently large and the means to remedy too expensive. A chewing gum costs a little, but the Distress caused by his Absence is likely to be within limits. So, what do we scrounge in the future?
