Aimlessly wasting time, the new violence.
At the end of the 20th century, after a few people got killed by alohol-violence, the term aimless violence became fashionable.
The aimlessness of drunkards violence would be that the victim had nothing to do with the perpetrator. The point of view of the victim (I had nothing to do with it, so the violence is aimless) clouded the real cause of the violence: excessive alcohol consumption, sometimes combined with other drug consumption like speed or cocaine), and the solution: supply less alcohol to already drunk men in the age class between twenty and thirty-five.
Scores of people held torchlight processions against this aimless violence. Not passing the headquarters of alcohol manufacturers in the Netherlands, like Heineken and Grolsch, but passing the places where copious consumption of their products inevitably led to a random victim.
We see the same misunderstanding with timers, the mixup of perspectives which leads to hilarious situations.
There are demonstrations for holding on to jobs, security, vested rights, etc. Factories and offices where thousands of people are waisting their time, are shored up by supporting politicians. Loss of the use of a products and services leads to panicky reactions on stock markets and the mass media: cars working fine should be taken off the road and demolished, as to make new cars and creating ‘growth’.
CEO’s, CFO’s CTO’s, middle management, shop floor stewards, they all aim at the higher timerot-index.
