History Blask I 36f
History/Baudrillard: there is no longer any historicity. The cause is the speed of social events. (> Virilio ditto).
Standstill of history: is the silence of the masses. The events follow each other so quickly and are presented by the media so incoherently that no more history can take place.
On the other hand:
Second argument: not acceleration, but deceleration causes the disappearance of the history. Nothing seems to happen. Symptom: one is addicted to newspapers and television news. Turning to relics and fossils of past epochs.
