    Description: The paper starts by identifying dynamic stabilization as a defining feature of modern societies. This term refers to the fact that such a society requires (material) growth, (technological) augmentation and high rates of (cultural) innovation in order to reproduce its structure and to preserve the socioeconomic and political status quo. The subsequent sections explore the mechanisms and consequences of this mode of social reproduction, proceeding in three steps. First, three key aspects or ‘motors’ of dynamization are identified, namely the mechanisms of (socio-economic) appropriation, (socio-cultural) acceleration and (socio-political) activation. In the second step, we argue that this ‘Triple-A-Mode’ of dynamic stabilization necessarily entails a logic of incessant escalation which eventually threatens to undermine itself, leading to a multifaceted process of destabilization. Unmistakable signs of this can be seen in the current financial, democratic, ecological and psychosocial crises. The third and last part briefly and very preliminarily sketches out the possible contours of a ‘post-growth’ society which could move beyond the current mode of dynamic stabilization.

    Description: Zusammenfassung In der wissenschaftlichen Selbstbeschreibung des europäischen Wohlfahrtsstaats ist eine Erzählung dominant, die ihn als – wenn auch national unterschiedlich ausgeprägte – weltweit einzigartige Form der Institutionalisierung sozialer Solidarität versteht, die seit den 1980er-Jahren durch die neoliberale Transformation (gleichsam von außen) in Gefahr geraten sei. Der Beitrag setzt dieser Erzählung eine andere entgegen: Auch schon vor der „neoliberalen Revolution“ lebte das europäische Solidaritätsarrangement davon, dass es auf Kosten eines gesellschaftlichen „Außen“ organisiert wurde und systematisch Dritte schädigte. Solidarität in den europäischen „Externalisierungsgesellschaften“ funktioniert nur als exkludierende Solidarität: Sie ist durch strukturelle soziale Schließungen nach innen, insbesondere aber – vermittelt über die Institution der „citizenship“ – nach außen charakterisiert. Insofern zeichnet sich der europäische Wohlfahrtsstaat durch eine fundamentale normative Selbstüberschätzung aus: Indem er „Solidarität“ eindimensional als nationalgesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalt ausbuchstabiert, verfährt er tatsächlich nach einem doppelten moralischen Standard. Abstract The European welfare state’s predominant scientific self-description understands it, some national variation notwithstanding, as a globally unique form of institutionalized solidarity that has come under attack from neoliberalism (from the outside, as it were) since the 1980s. This contribution counters this narrative with a different one: Even before the “neoliberal revolution” was the European arrangement of solidarity organized at the expense of a societal “outside” and inflicted systematic harm on third parties. Within the European “externalization societies”, solidarity can function solely as exclusive solidarity: being characterized by structural social closure on the inside, though even more so – mediated by the institution of “citizenship” – on the outside. The European welfare state thus suffers from severe normative overconfidence: by unidimensionally treating solidarity as national cohesion, it indeed proceeds by a moral double standard. Résumé La description scientifique de l’État-providence européen est dominée par un récit le présentant comme une forme d’institutionnalisation de la solidarité sociale certes variable d’un pays à l’autre mais globalement unique au monde qui serait mise en péril depuis les années 1980, en quelque sorte de l’extérieur, par la transformation néolibérale. À ce récit cet article entend opposer un autre récit : Même avant la « révolution néolibérale », le dispositif de solidarité européen était organisé aux dépens d’un « extérieur » social et systématiquement préjudiciable à des tiers. Dans les « sociétés externalisatrices » européennes, la solidarité ne fonctionne que comme solidarité exclusive : Elle est caractérisée par des clôtures sociales structurelles vers l’intérieur, mais aussi et surtout – par le biais de l’institution de la citoyenneté – vers l’extérieur. Aussi l’État-providence européen se caractérise-t-il par une surestimation de soi fondamentale en termes normatifs : En déclinant la « solidarité » de manière unidimensionnelle comme cohésion nationale, il procède de normes morales à géométrie variable.

    Description: The COVID-19 pandemic does not herald a new social era. Rather, the mechanisms of dealing with the pandemic, as far as they can be identified at this point, bear testimony to the structural socio-economic and socio-political crisis that must be regarded as the signature of democratic capitalism. Nor should the prevailing crisis management be misunderstood as a "politics of life" which (at least temporarily) suspends the capitalist logic of accumulation and of profit: as it is only certain lives that the governments of the democratic-capitalist industrialized countries are committed to saving and protecting. This means that any adoption of the life-coaching semantics of "crisis as an opportunity" should be treated with caution. However, for sociology itself the current circumstances could indeed offer an opportunity: that is, if it would finally stop denying that its own practice is inextricably enmeshed in (trans-)formative social processes and is never unideological, nor value-free, nor politically neutral.

    Description: The welfare state finds itself in a phase of sustained upheaval. That is already common knowledge. But how to define this transformation, this crisis, is clouded in obscurity. The prevailing discourses around the dismantling, or the neoliberal rolling back of the welfare state fall short of the mark. As a counter to this, this book proposes to understand the transformation from the welfare state that provides (for people) to the activating and investing welfare state, as a fundamental shift of axes in the relation between the individual and society: as a reinvention of the social. It traces the contours of an active society, in which mobility, flexibility and productivity degenerate into political formulae guiding individual self-constraint. No longer is the wellbeing of the individual citizen in the foreground, but rather the welfare of the societal community. With this, no less than the fundamental promise of modernity is abandoned: the promise of leading a self-determined life.
