Responsibilities of Michael M. Resch

"Die Bewegung in die Ironie hinein ist eine Empörung. Mit dieser Bewegung steigt der Mensch aus seiner Bedingung empor. Die Bewegung aus der Ironie heraus ist ein Engagement. Mit dieser Bewegung kehrt der Mensch in seine Bedingung zurück, um sie zu ändern. Die beiden Bewegungen heißen Freiheit."

Vilém Flusser, Für eine Philosophie der Emigration, in V. Flusser, Von der Freiheit des Migranten – Einsprüche gegen den Nationalismus, Europäische Verlagsanstalt, Berlin – Wien, 2000, pp 31-32
