UnconvincingI have to admit that dystopian visions of a totalitarian future are not high on my list of favourite genres unless of course it s Orwell but the very first line of this really got my hackles upGesundheit ist ein Zustand des vollkommenen k rperlichen geistigen und sozialen Wohlbefindens und nicht die blo e Abwesenheit von Krankheit Health is a state of complete physical spiritual and social wellbeing and not the mere absence of disease Oh bollocks Health is the absence of disease no and no less You can t be healthy than healthy The prologue continues in an overblown artificially grand sounding declamatory style which so set my teeth on edge that I immediately googled the purported author only to find that Heinrich Kremer does not exist at least not as the author of a treatise on health as principle of governmental legitimisation He did exist once as a German inuisitor of the 15th centuryOh OK so this is a spoof I geddit Unfortunately it is also the premise for this future world one in which the health police have taken over and run an over efficient Nanny state in which any kind of behaviour that might be a risk to health is forbidden in which the citizens are expected to keep tabs on and report their blood count sleep patterns nutrition diary blood pressure urine samples sport profiles etc etc etcAnother admission I ve only read 30 pages but so far there is no explanation of how we got from here to there I mean most New World Orders need some kind of previous cataclysm to warrant their existence something like a world wide war or a devastating environmental disaster disease pestilence whatever Something adeuately destabilizing which makes the formation of a totalitarian state vaguely plausible Juli Zeh will probably claim that this is not meant to be a realistic vision of the future but rather a model to examine what the conseuences of state control of our health might be But I can t help feeling that she is tilting at the wrong windmills It may well be true that there is a kind of health brigade that try to persuade us that we can be even healthy than healthy but usually it s no than a marketing ploy to push some spurious health giving product super food or anti oxidant or a wellness programme that is mostly designed to part me from my money how will that make me feel betterIt s true that there are numerous government campaigns to persuade us to eat fruit and veg lose weight uit smoking and so on but the only reason why these campaigns are numerous and strident is precisely because governments are well aware that the three single measures that would improve the general health of the nation in one fell swoop are absolutely unthinkable All any government really needs to do is make smoking alcohol and cured meat illegal There you go Easy Er no Because the one sacred value of our Western democratic world the one that outweighs all the rest put together is freedom The freedom to fuck your life up any way you want to The totalitarianism of this model is getting in the way of what might have been a sensible appraisal of how to curb spiralling health care costs Next

    PDF READ Corpus Delicti Ein Prozess ✓ Juli Zeh i really wanted to like this book better than i didmaybe this was just the runt of the litter? 'cause Zeh has been gathering all kinds of critical attention and kudos and i thought wow maybe this will be that rare kind of sf that not only shows us a possible future but does it in a way that makes us re think the presentthe setup certainly has some eerie resonances with the present in this future the state has taken a very person
