In many cities, in many places, on walls, billboards, construction trailers, corners of houses, ..., in short, on surfaces visible from afar, individual inscriptions are multiplying in a partly "alarming manner" for order-loving citizens who are attached to prosperity and consumption and fear for their own property. Described by some as "graffiti" in an aesthetically transfiguring way, this is the least accurate description of the situation. To dismiss these inscriptions politicizingly as "slogans" also makes clear the one-sidedness of the approach as an attitude and behavior of the viewers: these are the "others," the outsiders with whom we have nothing to do. An image of the enemy is created, as it is then projected into the public by the media and thus becomes an opinion that "one" subscribes to and which in turn solidifies such attitudes.
