Zugegeben: Am Anfang war das noch lustig mit Marlene Mortler. Als die frischgebackene Drogenbeauftragte in einem Interview zum Beispiel erklärte, dass Cannabis verboten ist, weil es illegal ist, war das großes Tennis. Und ein bisschen konnte die unbedarfte CSU-Abgeordnete einem ja auch leid tun: Immerhin hatte sie nie vorgehabt, diesen Job zu machen, von dem sie so offensichtlich wenig Ahnung hatte.

Nur: Mittlerweile hätte Mortler fast vier Jahre Zeit gehabt, um sich in die deutsche Drogenpolitik einzuarbeiten und ein paar grundlegende Dinge zu verstehen. Ihre Kommentare zum neuen Drogen- und Suchtbericht der Bundesregierung am Freitag zeigen aber, dass sie das immer noch nicht geschafft hat. Und das ist eher tragisch als lustig.

"Liebe Leserinnen und Leser", beginnt der Bericht mit Mortlers Grußwort. "Ein gutes Jahr ist seit der Veröffentlichung des letzten Drogen- und Suchtberichts vergangen." Ein ziemlich schräger Einstieg, wenn man im Bereich "Drogenbedingte Todesfälle" dann erfährt, dass die Zahl der Drogentoten im Jahr 2016 auf 1.333 geklettert ist – das sind neun Prozent mehr als im Vorjahr. Und das ist kein Ausreißer: Die Zahl der Drogentoten steigt jetzt schon das vierte Jahr in Folge. Seit Marlene Mortler im Amt ist, sind jedes Jahr mehr Menschen an Drogen gestorben.

I don’t like the Antifa

good points on how not to demonstrate against white suprematists (and how to):

I can’t say much about their motives, but I will say this: it seems to me that some of them might have only randomly ended up on their end of the political spectrum. Had they been hanging out with different people, their inclination towards violence would have made some fine nazis out of them. But then again it’s hard to pass judgement on what’s in a man’s heart.

One thing we can judge though is the things they are doing. The violence. Do I think that the nazis who are marching through Bad Nenndorf are by no means punchable? No, I don’t. It would give me satisfaction to see them being punched. But what cause would that serve? Would it weaken the nazis’ resolve? Would it prevent anyone else from becoming a nazi? Do blockades and sabotage acts ever make a nazi anything but more determined?

Actually, I think that the nazis aren’t just fine with the Antifa punching them, they actually enjoy it for two reasons: first, it’s part of their identity. I don’t claim to know much about the psychology of the common nazi, but there are a few tropes that seem to be clear: manliness is important, the seriousness of the mission is important, the heroics of standing against adversaries are important.

Being attacked is part of the nazi identity.

Second, any attack on them can be used by them against the rest of society. They can point to their bruises and say: look, you are not better than we are! And this is precisely one of their central storylines: Axis vs Allies, Buchenwald vs Bad Nenndorf, nazis vs Antifa – they want everyone else to think it’s all the same, that there is nothing particularly bad about being a nazi.

And yet there are some things that nazis seem to be unable to cope with. The little town of Bad Nenndorf being all colorful and nicely decorated for them is one of those things. People applauding the march of the nazis, people playing loud music, people toasting with beer and laughing at them is another thing.

In the 1985 Terry Gilliam dystopian film, Brazil, there is a short scene wherein the protagonist, Sam, phones into the “Central Services” to get his heating and air conditioning fixed. He finds his requests dispassionately and politely declined. Amusingly, renegade repairman Archibald Tuttle intercepts the request and infiltrates Sam’s apartment in order to repair his air conditioning. This, of course, is a dangerous and highly illegal endeavor- “Central Services” eventually seizes Sam’s apartment because of the unauthorized repairs. Apple would be proud. In Brazil, Gilliam frames Tuttle, the third party repairman, as a literal subversive. To me, the third party repairmen who fix cracked IPhone screens are probably not that far off Gilliam’s Archibald Tuttle.

Filed under: yikes, get a new girlfriend, doubleyikes

A classic example of what abusive behavior in women can look like. This isn’t cute or sweet or just for anyone’s own good, this is controlling.

Young gents (and wlw and nb folks interested in ladies), if your girlfriend or prospective girlfriend presents you a list like this (especially in writing), you crumple that shit up, drop it at her feet, remind her that you are not property, and walk away.

This shit isn’t funny or cute when a man does it to a woman; do not tolerate it just because it’s coming from a woman.

I can’t stress this enough. Same for curfews (of any sort), insisting on having your passwords, monitoring your conversations, etc. Your partner should never have to control you to trust you
