Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

From 2011 onwards, activism by and around the worldwide Occupy Wall Street movements in Europe and Northern America was confronted with criticism that it had never really raised any realistically achievable demands. In order to oppose this criticism and justify these movements, this article theoretically elaborates the condition of possibility of a claim which seemed crucial for them from the beginning on: Unfuck the World. Following the theory of Walter Benjamin, Carl Schmitt and Giorgio Agamben, the article assumes a structural pathology within any modern state. Given this diagnosis, the text describes how Occupy Wall Street and similar movements can actually be seen as a certain way to overcome this pathology.
