We have got a very interesting article written by the professional music-journalist, writer and university-teacher Oliver Uschmann from Germany.
"I have published a very instructive and interesting article about "Bad Religion and the dialectics of enlightenment" in the ambitioned journal for "pop-theory" named TESTCARD" says Oliver Uschmann.
"The article is based on an extraordinary discussion I had with Greg Graffin January 2002, where I confronted his optimistic "humanistic naturalism" and scientific positivism with the dark and sceptic "critical theory" and technological criticism of philosophers like G?nther Anders, Theodor W. Adorno or David Noble" says Uschmann.
"The article is quite academic but it inherits a depth in thoughts and a power in means that really shows what an extraordinary character and writer Greg Graffin is, how much his lyrics offer and in which way one can challenge the discourse made off by Bad Religion, a band I - besides all intellectual criticism I had - still love as fuck!"
