This is Part 2 of a two part interview of David Korowicz by Alexander Ač. Recorded in Brno, Czech Republic, 29 January 2014. Read Part 1: How to be Trapped.
Alexander Ač: And we also have another kind of growth. That is, what do you think are the key factors behind the growing number of angry people?
David Korowicz: Anger is a natural part of being human and can arise because people feel they have been badly treated, a personal boundary has been crossed or they have been denied something. It is also part of collective behavior that can regulate or amplify stress.
DK: Let me put it in a jokey and anachronistic way. We are the global haute-bourgeoisie railing against the global aristocracy while claiming the mantle of the global proletariat. It allows us to feel righteous while skirting the issues that make us complicit.
What kind of the world do we live in?
