Summary

The title of this text by Alexander Bergmann has largely borrowed from St├ęphane Hessel's book entitled Time for outrage!. This is no accident. Indeed the author was stimulated to write his book by his reading of Hessel's outcry against the inequalities in our world, the race for ever more material goods, and the dictates of the financial markets. Alexander Bergmann also thrashes these plagues, but he adds a few other concerns like the domination of the economy, in particular an economy acting on the bases of neo-liberalism, the unquestioned acceptance of economic imperatives, the continued pursuit of growth, the permanent rush for innovation, the maddening acceleration of our society, its cult of performance, and the deterioration of working conditions. Further, he adds a few possibilities to explore to correct these aberrations. For he is convinced that we will head for disaster, if we do not rapidly develop a new model of society which breaks with the 'business society', the 'work society' and the 'consumption society' we live in.
