Brecht kills Lao-Tse

Yet Another Parable on Parables. But this one is cut short by Brecht (or closer: by Brecht's influence on Benjamin, since Benjamin could have just as easily finished the parable then discussed how and where it was interrupted...).

At least Brecht is consistent: if there's nothing there, then it's worth nothing. There is no "more than parable" for Brecht.

Brecht would find this website "despicable"

[a conversation between Lao-Tse and his disciple Kafka]
