Crítica da Razão Cínica, publicado por ocasião do bicentenário da Crítica da Razão Pura de Kant, é, antes de mais, uma crítica da modernidade.
Para Peter Sloterdijk, o actual cinismo resulta da perda das ilusões iluministas.
Na Antiguidade, com Diógenes, o cinismo era uma atitude individual confinada a uma corrente filosófica de reduzida expressão.
No nosso tempo, enquanto «falsa consciência», é um fenómeno generalizado que Sloterdijk detecta nos mais diversos campos, da vida privada à religião.
Como resposta a este cinismo moderno, e para que ele possa ser ultrapassado, o autor sugere a redescoberta das virtudes do antigo cinismo ou, mais exactamente, do kinismo, que passa pelo riso, a insolência e a invectiva. Este processo poderia permitir transformar o ser (Sein) em ser consciente (Bewusstsein).
Surgida na Alemanha em 1983 e considerada então por Habermas como a principal obra filosófica das últimas décadas, Crítica da Razão Cínica permite-nos também entender melhor o trajecto intelectual de Sloterdijk e as polémicas suscitadas pelos seus livros mais recentes.

Talvez a série de televisão mais inovadora de sempre (1984-1990). Pela música, pelo elenco, por ter sido, maioritariamente, filmada durante a noite, e pelo singular guarda roupa (o tal blazer, com uma t-shirt por baixo)  - Gianni Versace era o seu consultor de moda.

Marlon talks more about his decision to reject the Oscar for his performance in The Godfather.

Date aired - 12th June 1973 - Marlon Brando

 

Everyone was stunned when a young actress named Sacheen Littlefeather came to the stage instead of Brando. Littlefeather’s given name was Marie Louise Cruz, her ancestors were White Mountain Apache, and she was an Indian rights activist. She had agreed to decline the award on Brando’s behalf. Brando was an activist throughout his career. He protested the portrayal of Native Americans in the American film industry and argued that Natives were mostly portrayed as alcoholics, slackers, and unintelligent criminals. The incident that prompted Brando to refuse the award was the U.S. law enforcement’s violent involvement in the quashing of the protest at Wounded Knee in February 1973. The protesters were Oglala Indians and members of the American Indian Movement who objected to the U.S. government’s failure to fulfill its treaties with Native Americans.

 

Sacheen Littlefeather was supposed to read Brando’s 15-page-long speech at the ceremony; however, before the ceremony started, the producers warned her that she would be allowed to stay on stage for a maximum of 60 seconds. If she exceeded this time limit, she would risk being forcefully removed by security officers. She then read the shortened version of Brando’s statement and briefly disclosed his reasons for the refusal of the award. L.A. Times reported that, among other things, she stated the following:

 

“It’s hard enough for children to grow up in this world. When Indian children watch television, and they watch films, and when they see their race depicted as they are in films, their minds become injured in ways we can never know.”

Steven Wilson vai estar, esta noite, em Lisboa. Segundo os especialistas, um dos melhores músicos da actualidade, sendo esta música, "Sentimental" (c/os Pocupine Tree), sublime, destacando, eu, a letra.

 

"I never wanna be old
And I don't want dependents
It's no fun to be told
That you can't blame your parents anymore

I'm finding it hard to hang from a star
I don't wanna be
Never wanna be old

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way they wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way they wish away each day

I don't really know
If I care what is normal
And I'm not really sure
If the pills I've been taking are helping

I'm wasting my life, and I'm hurting inside
I don't really know
And I'm not really sure

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way they wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way they wish away each day"
