Trying to describe the discourse which is used in the drug business, the author looks closely at urban graffiti. The small signature of a drug dealer (“Good stuff”), modified several times by members of the local community, becomes part of the story about personal suffering, addiction and loss of dignity. By referring to Hannah Arend’s “On revolution”, the following article builds the parallel between the aristocracy just before the outbreak of the Great Revolution and the discourse of the drug business, which maintains a semblance of “charity”. In fact, both are based on the same hypocrisy, reducing human beings to the “naked need”.
