lyrics

Reiten, Jagen, Fischen

konkurrenzkampf und wettbewerb
und wer nicht arbeitet
soll auch nicht essen
wenn du von gesellschaft redest
erinnert mich das immer
an reiten, jagen, fischen

früher hättest du
vielleicht noch gesagt
“geh doch nach drüben”
aber jetzt reicht ja wieder
die alte Jäger und SammlerGeschichte
als Grund, warum alles
immer so bleiben muss

Riding, hunting, fishing

Competition and rat-race
and if you don’t work
you don’t eat
when you speak of society
it always sounds
like riding, hunting, fishing

Back then maybe
you would have sayed
“Move to the Eastern Bloc then”
but now it’s good enough
to tell the old story
of hunters and gatherers
to justify that
everything has to stay as it is

The evil human nature - “Humans being a wolf to their fellow humans” - making it naturally neccessary for people to fight over resources and to treat each other as predators is a widespread belief. It is also an often used justification on why capitalism is considered to be the best way to organize human societies, when in fact capitalism encourages people to treat each other like that. So these beliefs of the bad, sinful human nature are a perfect way to retain the status quo and to keep people from thinking about better ways to organize societies.
