we had about 100 grams beans a portion.
Yesterday we had during lunch pumpkin-chicken soup and for dinner you
have to take 40 grams of tagiatelli pasta with 30 gram rucola arugula,
1/2 onion, 8 pine nuts, mix with 1 melted goat cheese-cube (amount of
two sugar cubes) and 50 grams of pastrami. Everything else is the same.
About Foucault, I am not so familiar with what he says, but there seems
to be a lot of comparisons in what Deleuze says about wild zone, in which
individuals live who are not controllable, who live out of the society,
but the society needs this zone in order to control individuals in its
society. You can also put that to an example nowadays: marketing strategies
of society investigate these wild zoneindividuals in order to know what
is going to be hot or wanted in the future which is not yet known in
society. That gives these wild zoneindividuals a certain power which
the individuals in society to keep these individuals small so they don't
get too much power. It is also the reason to give all “other” opinions
than those of society a label “abnormal”or “sick”,
to control individuals to stay in society and not enter the wild zone,
so it goes together with fear – fear from everything that is different
