The redemption of the West Berlin Revolutionar will give an impression of the historical figure that is in vain in his writings
A "Supporting rhetor" Be Rudi Dutschke. This is the judgment of the house and courtyard philosopher of the old Federal Republic of Jurgen Habermas. But this doubtful compliment, repeated by all liberal feuilletons at any occasion and continuously varies, has a barb.

Rudolf Augstein, Grunder and Long Annual Editor-in-Chief of the news magazine The mirror spoke out what is meant when Dutch’s booked speaker arts are praised by his political opponents. "He was obviously not a host’s heart", wrote Augstein in 1980 in his obituary. "Dutschke, as I said, was not theorist. He was a speaker, as it did not give it more about Straub and Wehner in Germany after 1945."
Who is still too subtle, it helps Augstein’s successor Stefan Aust on the Speestra. In an interview with the Germany 2008 said Aust Uber Dutschke: "As a speaker he was extremely impressive. But that was not so much about what he said was the sound that made the music. This hoarse sound, since he has given infinite box sets, peppered with extremely many sociological words. I suspect, sometimes he did not really know what he meant, but it was very impressive in the way, the way he spoke."
And the biographer Ulrich Chaussy Seconded: "But he speaks. The involuntary cartoon of the German box and tape worm set is his speech. With redekunst this has nothing to do. The transcript of the interviews and talk Dutch’s tilt his voice, makes his speeches to the skeleton and puts relentlessly her weak blob. But since he fascinates his supersomes with these speeches, they also obedient their weak to explain the success. Often this is like this: The sentences keep opportunities open to do something that everyone is already wife that it is not possible. But it should be possible. For this yearning, Dutsch’s set place."
"It’s about the concrete question of democratization" – together Rudi Dutschke (audio)
They say Dutschke the "Brilliant speaker" and mean only dutschke "Begnade Demagogue", like him Springers image, This far more honest, still calls today.
A demagogue that not only the masses with the "hoarse sound" his rat-catcher melody of conort, negotiated and consolidated, no, a demagogue, who falls victim to his own suggestion and looked into his own speech. This image of Dutschke the ecstatic demagogue with his "stuck" and the "ASKETIC AURA", A dangerous and fanatical red rasputin, also haunts by the earthy anecdotes and fantasized memories of those spatangas, which today did not know what they did.
This picture does not say anything about Dutschke, but everything about that "Capitalistic thinking" those who "Social conflicts – made of people mass" can only understand "In the form of persons", like Dutschke in one of his breeding, allegedly durable "Box and tape worm rats" says.
The mistake of the necrologist
"So the antiautoritar movement became" not only "identical set with dutschke and personalized in an almost total senses". Those who always know in their identification with the prevailing ratios in advance, which should not be possible, can not be different than the appeal of the "Cyclist" Dutschke with his "Honor" found to mystify, because the content, which, what Dutschke said, may it have not been a price.
Shortly after Dutch’s death, the essayist Michael Schneider wrote in his obituary:
Oh, how bad these gentlemen known those who are now dedicated to their necrologist. They all certify what is commonly called ‘Charisma’ (one of the helpless concepts of burgeral sociology): an unusual speaker, an almost demagogical conviction force. The sparkling in his political craftsman; But the craftsman was not what actually made him, but: that he really meant what he thought and with his whole person. If he had ‘charisma’, then in a radically different sense, as the zoters of the rhetoric and the fetishists of the larynx (Dutch’s’ hoarse, suggestive surrender voice ‘) mean: he had respect for man and one ear for the’ lowest his brother ‘and enjoyed. Even as a radical Marxist, he never denied his Christian-humanist heritage.
True is that Dutschke has more than his speeches and about talking about his writings. This will not become one who "visibly no theorist" was like Augstein liked to believe. On the contrary, this is just this ratio of speech and writing, according to Plato, the "good philosopher" out, the even more and essential organic to convey wife when he wrote.
This marking obviously also applies to Dutschke how to show. In 2000, the philosopher and political scientist released Frieder Otto Wolf in the magazine The argument sampling a letter from the estate, the Rudi Dutschke on 31.3.1967 had written to the Hungarian philosopher and literary scientist Georg Lukacs.
Wolf puts here on 13 pages and in 144 notes the theoretical substructure of the almost seven-sided letter, soothing, so that its true outburst still has not been affected by far. Level but not only Dutsch’s letters, the same is true for those who talk about him.
The individual retires and slogans in the speeches, interviews and talks of the socialist agitator Dutschke contribute frequently the character of what the US Linguist Georg Lakoff "Conceptual metaphors" Name: Simple word images that carry imperceptibly complex connections, visual and ways of thinking. Some encrypt from the present horstuffs can illustrate this.
