Das Gegenteil von gut ist gut gemeint

…so singen Kettcar in Im Taxi weinen. Ganz lebensweise sang bereits Bob Dylan:

You can kill somebody with kindness, too.

Aber womöglich hatte auch der alte Bob diese Weisheit nur geklaut. Heinrich Zille stellte schon viel früher in ähnlicher Diktion fest:

Man kann Menschen nicht nur mit einer Axt, sondern auch mit einer Wohnung töten.

Wir hätten es wissen können, auch ohne Immobilienkrise anno 2008.
