Today I have to complain about a thing that have bothered me the whole night. The reason is this british pop band called Pink Floyd who played here in East Berlin yesterday.
The show was called “The Wall” and Roger Waters (the guy who the british government ordered to make the show) said to us that he wanted to honor our anti-capitalistic wall. Roger seemed to be a nice guy so I trusted him to begin with. But now I understand that I should have known better.
He asked us to remove our wall to give him space for his show, right at the old Potsdamer Platz. So we removed our wall to make him happy.
But after that, he started to build his own wall!
When his show started, Roger was drunk and his gang singed the most terrible and degenerated songs about violence, hate against the government and uncontrolled beer drinking. I was quite shocked by the whole scenario and went home and wrote a letter to the Volkspolizei.
The next day I visited the place again. I wanted to talk to this guy Roger Waters and force him to explain his weird behavior. But he was gone. The only thing left was litter and debris, empty bottles and other disgusting things.
My conclusion: Never trust an englishman!
IFA Wartburg has a much better song about our anti capitalistic wall and you must listen to it here: IFA Wartburg Das Mauer Power
This evening I visited Bio Kontrast in Upplands Väsby together with Heinz and Rolf to see a western propaganda movie called “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” based on a fantasy novel by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
The film is about this guy Ivan Denisovich who has been sentenced to a camp in the Soviet gulag system (but there were no such camps because we socialists are nice). He is innocent (he says), but is sentenced to ten years in a forced labor camp. The guy is heavily beaten because he is ill, despite this forced to work at a brutal construction site where the cold freezes the mortar used for bricklaying. At the end of the day, the thermometer reaches −41 °C and the cement freezes in the cement mixer.
Heinz and Rolf were both extremely horrified by the anti socialistic propaganda presented in this film. They had to go back to DDR and write a song about how nice it can be in such a camp (but they don’t exist so its not necessary to write a song anyway).
“Zementwerk in Sibirien” desperately tries to put focus on how important it is to treat cement in a nice way.
One thing that have been hard for me to understand is why we people living here in the East have such different perceptions compared to people in the West. Everyone knows that many in the West have problems with sexual activites; something that we socialists don´t have.
What is normal and what is not? I can never see a matter of argument, because our arguments are based on the truth. I would like to tell you more about my thoughts here:
I once read about a capitalist who only wanted to walk around in his dusty room and read books about female genital diseases. This man was completely destroyed by money, he had no comrades and he could only eat hamburgers. The rest of the time he was sitting in front of his television set, marinating his brain with capitalistic lies all day long.
One day the TV broke down and the poor guy compensated for this by start reading books about female genital diseases. That was the only thing that could tickle his degenerated nerve system from now on.
He kept these books in a large vitrine and read them day and night. He could look at all these medical color images for hours an every night he was dreaming about genitals mutilated by diseases.
I told Heinz and Rolf about this sad person and they immediately decided to write a song about him. After all, we are in the same boat, everyone living on this planet. All people are equal. Yes, except for people who only read books about female genital diseases of course.
