Slippery Ice

Ludwig Wittgenstein

“We have got on to slippery ice where there is no friction and so in a certain sense the conditions are ideal, but also, just because of that, we are unable to walk. We want to walk: so we need friction. Back to the rough ground!”

Ludwig Wittgenstein

In a political context, what could this “slippery ice” be?

Could we be too comfortable, sedated even, with the amount of “content” available to us that we never question the state of things?
