So to conclude these rather cursory considerations, which (if time is enough) could someday become the core of something bigger. Reality must be divided into pieces and described separately, and then combined in a cause-and-effect chain. Yes, you can emotionally create the poetry of a film or a book, as Nossiter does, but making such poetry out of frustration will not change reality in anything. I suspect it’s more about how to get known because of an artistic event.
Die Philosophen haben die Welt nur verschieden interpretiert,es kommt darauf an sie zu verändern. Poetry, although pleasant to the eyes and delightfully tickling to the palate, rather preserves the world. Wines, according to Parker, or wines according to Nossiter are something that 99% of the world’s population can not even aspire to (and again I refer to Piketty). It’s not about making revolutions. They’re just killing, not creating anything new. It’s about introducing some order in my head and not striving for something that’s as far away as on Mars.
The wines that surround us every day are not wines, and again here, we have inaccuracies in terminology. They are other industrial products made in laboratories and factories for the mass consumer, also taking advantage of snobbery and stupidity and pretending to come from a higher shelf. Such products are our reality, and all these blogs, reviews, festivals, it’s just making a good face to a bad game. Parker had no intention of judging such products. He only did his best to find himself in a tiny 1%, to be able to drink real wines.
Will the gradual enrichment of the masses put an end to contradictions? I’m afraid not, at least in my lifetime. If this world survives, it will undoubtedly happen someday. Universal equality is not a cure for all evil, as it equally means that everyone should get poor, that is, erase aspirations, and therefore also values, which we could aspire to. Globalisation in the fashion of the richest does not solve anything, moving exploitation and contradictions to colonised markets. Matching another ideology, at least here, doesn’t interest me.
For now, we are dealing with a rebellion of a blind matter, which tired of human pertness begins to throw us off the saddle. In Napa, fires threaten all vineyards, and as Kurniawan comes out of prison, more fakes of excellent Bordeaux will inundate the world of rich snobbery. Unfortunately, greed remains the same and feels okay. Such a discovery leads to rather pessimistic conclusions, but this, perhaps, is to be discussed another time.
