Wanderlust-driven brainwashing and narrative tickets to emancipation: the colonization of reality by tourism and the strategic dimensions of travel
Tourist operators like to advertise that they leave no wish unfulfilled. In fact, the travel cosmos today leaves no stone unturned to fill every millimeter of our lives with meaning. What can be said with regard to the distant world also applies to our everyday life in the here and now: tourism is everywhere. But what is so astonishing about it? Basically nothing. Tourism is the second biggest industry in the world after the automotive industry. But the point is: we too often forget this and with it the fact that we are significantly shaped by tourism. So it is time to be aware of this and to focus on the strategic dimensions of travel.
