A coffeehouse talk with Bruno Kreisky
The Art of Complaining engages the public with the sports Austria is mostly associated with. Over coffee and cake, Kreisky lashes out against real and imaginary enemies; from Israeli Jews to conservative economists, from Jörg Haider to Simon Wiesenthal.
He laments the death of his close friend Muammar Gaddafi and restates his commitment to deficit spending. He lives for the fight, he prefers a punch to the face to a kiss on the cheek. As long as he can express dissatisfaction or annoyance about the state of affairs he is happy.
The Art of Complaining has no endpoint, it is circular, and it is a form of breathing, as long as one complains one is alive.
