i thought the all against all fight to the death was english??????????
the two countries must share a trait or two.
but seriously, i'm reminded by all the signage of spain, where especially 'otro mundo es posible' banners hung everywhere

Werner Herzog's original title for the movie released in English as The Enigma of Kasper Hauser was "Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle" "Every Man for Himself, and God Against All."
I don't know where he got that title but maybe there's an old saying.

The Semper Gallery of the Zwinger and the Albertinum are about the best bang for 20 euros total anywhere. Augustus the Strong was partying in Venice in the late 17thC when his brother died of smallpox and he became elector, then he started buying paintings.

Yo Ian and x larry,

A more correct translation would be, "Each against every other," but I shortened it to "Each against all."

P.S. There is a saying, "Es ist ein Kampf jeder gegen jeden," "It is a battle each against each other," a kind of battle royal.

P.S.S. Thomas Hobbes, "warre of every one against every one."

Full passage, "Out Of Civil States, There Is Alwayes Warre Of Every One Against Every One Hereby it is manifest, that during the time men live without a common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called Warre; and such a warre, as is of every man, against every man. For WARRE, consisteth not in Battell onely, or the act of fighting; but in a tract of time, wherein the Will to contend by Battell is sufficiently known: and therefore the notion of Time, is to be considered in the nature of Warre; as it is in the nature of Weather. For as the nature of Foule weather, lyeth not in a showre or two of rain; but in an inclination thereto of many dayes together: So the nature of War, consisteth not in actuall fighting; but in the known disposition thereto, during all the time there is no assurance to the contrary. All other time is PEACE."

Side note: If you look for "Voice of Germany" on YouTube, you will see that most of the contestants sing in English.

thanks linh and ian,
interesting hobbes quote, presumably from leviathan, which i've mercifully not read till this passage and the famous life is nasty brutish and short... if you're english, or perhaps northern european in general. i agree with hobbes though: it's all mindset. his, of course, is shit. he was it seems to me the darwin figure of his day (this is of course knowing nothing of him and little of his times). by this i mean a great figure, a great Authority, to whom all can look to see the truth, ie to be told how to think and act--nasty and brutish with acompanying death cult in hobbes' case, survival of the fittest cum death cult in darwin's. darwin is of course still worshipped for his insights today, in our scientific and 'factual' age. i of course say fuck those pieces of shit. give me basho.
