Hallo!

Du bist hier im Forum der Linguistik-Fachschaft gelandet. Mit den Romanisten haben wir nur insofern zu tun, dass wir zu einer Fakultät gehören, nicht aber zu einem Seminar. Die (sehr unzulängliche) Website der Romanistik-Fachschaft findest Du hier: http://www.fachschaften.neuphilologie.uni-tuebingen.de/romanistik/index.html

Vielleicht weiß ja jemand im Brechtbauplenum Bescheid. Die sind erst einmal Deine Ansprechpartner bei der Fachschaft.

Hoffe, Dir damit geholfen zu haben.

Johannes

nicest thing about German are verbal prefixes:

stören --> verstören, entstören, zerstören
kommen -> abkommen, ankommen, aufkommen, entkommen, ..., überkommen, unterkommen, verkommen, vorkommen, zukommen

Just imagine - what do those have to do with each other.

And I'd really like to see some explicit semantics of ER- and BE- as well as VER- one day.

Some of my all-time German favourites:

Gestalt
Wendung

obsiegen
obwalten
Mürbeteig

Greetings from a dumb sheep, Aleks.

If you're on your nihilsitic trip again just because people won't do what you tell them,
why don't you just retreat and leave them in peace. There's enough soma around for everyone  ;)

Echt, komm mal runter, Aleks. Das ist langsam echt nicht mehr feierlich.

Parties and Events / Re: Clubhausfest
« on: 2007-02-07 18:42:50 »
It's quite usual to do joint Clubhausfeste with two Fachschaften.

But I really have to emphasize it is an awful lot of work because we would have to do everything this time, including a lot of bureaucracy (that some of us might already be fed up with) for not much gain (with the JuSos, we usually earned some 700 €, although those were quite big ones)
and a lot of stress. I am not in principle against doing such a thing, but a year of waiting is certainly recommendable.

Should the Fachschaft still choose this option, you can count on my assistance in any way possible.

Well, I happen to know a former Weinkönigin...

Her parents were actually wine farmers, so there might be some family bonds invovled.

The main task of a "wine queen":

Represent the home community abroad e.g. at student exchanges etc.

Tell you what: in S-H we have got a "Kohlkönigin" - just imagine...

I actually agree to most of what you say. Aleks, from the social perspective you're definitely right, I couldn't agree more. There was a lot of pathos in your little address, which shows you are one of those few people not giving in to the "system" and not despairing til agony. The problem is: We'd need more of those. It's a pity that all the good guys are against the "system", instead of trying to improve it from within - which is still possible, contrary to your views. The problem about your criticism is that you don't really offer an alternative. I know about your anarcho-syndicalist views and I appreciate them, but when we talked about it you had to submit it isn't feasible on a larger scale. Thanks to Anna for bringing Hobbes into play...

Be that as it may, you simply don't have the right to call everyone else "cowards". That's why I got so annoyed.
As you know, I have also been politically active, and I also have the feeling it's hard to change things, but from where do you take the arrogance to say that whoever doesn't agree to your somewhat extreme opinion is a "coward"? There are certain illiberal tendencies hovering around this word that I must reject being a democrate - and I expect you might want to refrain from them as well.

By the way, this matter IS largely political. Not all the problems DrNI listed are directly subject of politics, but they are all influenced by it to a very high degree. The problem is: I simply don't want to give up. It s simple to say "oh,the system is shit anyway, I don't want to be bothered by it any more, I'll just wait for the next revolution and THEN I'm going to be active". That's just the easy way out. I know this does not apply to you, Aleks, but it is a little schizophreniac at best to gladly take the liberties the "system" provides (such as being allowed to express your opinion, even being against the "system as a whole" (which doesn't really exist)) just to be bluntly "against it". Oh, the system is so bad, we simply don't have any influence, so we might just as well give up. No. There never was a system without political elites ruling it (there were better elites than nowadays, I know), so "democracy" as you define it simply doesn't exist. The same for communism and any other ideology (even neoliberalism meets its problems once it has to recognize hat people have feelings and don't act rationally ). I know about the advantages of the current "system", and that's why I have problems with anyone who wants to discard it as a whole.

Summary:

My problem: People are either (remember "there are two kinds of people" ? *g*)

"against the system as a whole" --> Aleks and the politically engaged part of the tuition fee critics
just another disgusting interest group --> the other part of the tuition fee critics

My consequences as a democrat still largely in favour of the system although against tuition fees: I pay.

Well, it seems I am cowardly enough to give you my reasons for paying.

If all those people who all of a sudden get so "political" and "socially engaged" and "courageous" had already been so BEFORE the danger of money being pulled out of their pockets became acute, the whole story would seem so much less hypocritic.

Students are just one more disgusting interest group or lobby like everyone else is.

Yes, the problem exists and even from a general social point of view, there are good reasons against tuition fees. But people who ignore in apathy what happens in the parties, in parliament etc for years, then suddenly wakie up as politics begin to touch them, but then with even more enthusiasm call everyone else "cowards", just annoy me. That's why I am taking a counter-position here that does not necessarily reflect my political views on tuition fees (yes, they are crap). I'm paying. Any other reaction would seem cowardly to me.

Hi Sladja,

nothing springs to mind at the moment. I cannot tell now whether my criticism was justified two months ago,
but if it wasn't, I apologize. Perhaps in November there still some remnants of what was there before you took over responsibility for the site  :)
