Synopsis

"So wie Odysseus im Mythos sich an den Mast seines Schiffes fesseln lasst und sich im Wissen um die eigene Willensschwache durch freiwillige Selbstbindung schutzt vor der Verfuhrung der Sirenen, so verabreden die Burger eine kollektive Selbstbindung: die Verfassung. Aber auch die beste aller moglichen politischen Verfassungsordnungen, der demokratische Verfassungsstaat, kann die Zerstorung der naturlichen Lebensgrundlagen nicht aufhalten; im Gegenteil: seine institutionellen Arrangements bieten den bedenkenlosen Umweltnutzern mehr Nischen und Vorteile als den Umweltschutzern. Heute verheisst der Gesang der Sirenen von immerwahrendem Luxus einen Genuss ohne Reue. Aber dieser kann zu einem Genuss mit katastrophalem Ausgang werden, wenn die Burger nicht mit adaquaten Formen kollektiver Selbstbindung auf diese Herausforderung antworten und neue, besser geeignete politische Institutionen verabreden. Die Bedingungen der Freiheit in anderer Form zu verfassen - das wird die neue Aufgabe sein, vor der die Burger der Berliner Republik stehen."

Tine Stein ist wissenschaftliche Assistentin am Fachbereich Politische Wissenschaft der Freien Universitat Berlin.
