BERLIN. Writer Sibylle Berg has explained why she is running for the former satirical party ‘The Party’ in the European elections and wants to become a member of the EU Parliament. The self-described ‘non-binary person’, i.e. not assigned to any gender, said World: “My candidacy is not art, not performance, I mean it.” Berg follows party founder Martin Sonneborn second place on the list.

Through her work she also came into contact with left-wing radicals MirrorThe author, who became known for her columns, is “increasingly more radical,” she explains. She wants to “make this a reality from the protected space of literature”. While her environment justified the strictest restrictions on fundamental rights and discredited government critics during the Corona period, Berg had as of 2021 Criticism of the measures practiced.

Berg: Radicalized in the Corona years

The Corona years were also the starting point for her radicalization, the 61-year-old now says: “There was no more exchange or discussion. People who were afraid, who wanted to have control over their bodies, became idiots, right-wingers, enemies.”

Berg, who lives in Switzerland and has both German and federal citizenship, draws parallels with the present: “Meanwhile, the criticism of capitalism is right-wing, just like pacifism, and if everything that criticizes the leaders of government is right-wing, it is also right. very effective at silencing people.”

Against the Digital Services Act

Berg is also against the EU-wide Digital Service Act, which is intended to counter criticism of those in power on social media. The writer rejects EU Digital Commissioner Thierry Breton’s announcement that social media will be switched off in the event of unrest.

She says, “Everything is going wrong.” In the European Parliament people worked ‘like ants in a forest’, but ‘nothing good’ came out of it for the population. Berg believes he has found the explanation: “Every government wants to be able to keep its population under control at all times. Perhaps out of fear of impending uprisings. Or just for fun.”
