Self: Pilgrim, Nomad, Homo Faber
- 79 Downloads
The economic impact of globalization on all spheres of life reduces humanity to human capital and turns the modern self1 into a flexible nomad labor force.2 Times are changing fast these days and the well-trained nomads have to be prepared for the survival of the fittest in the jungle of the global economy, to look out for themselves and their network of like-minded nomads. The welfare state of yore and its social transfers play no role in this game. Flexible nomads must not make too extensive demands but has to limit them to a minimum.3 The only weapon of protection within this game beyond one’s own strength and power are rights—subjective rights, but labeled as human rights.
