The word Ressentiment means a passive feeling of jealousy and powerlessness. The show will examine the anatomy of powerlessness. Do we live in a test might? Does it create ressentiment? And how damaging is this for a free society?
Because where state, society and school speaks of Man’s potential for development, a new and naturalistic school of research speaks louder and louder of what is fixed – given by birth or determined by nature. What happens when the loser – faced by popular science, TV entertainment and internet tests – starts to perceive own achievements as nature?
