But of course, the Film understands this and Itself – according to Hegel’s Hypothesis that all World History repeats itself as a ‘lousy Farce’.” Till und Fritz auf Reisefahrt nach Klopstockland is the Monumental Journey of Till and Fritz, the two Sons of mr. von Euler-Donnersperg, to the imaginary Land of Klopstockland; Till und Fritz are both returning Characters in Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg’s Phantasmagoric Universe. Klopstockland is rumored to be the Republic as envisioned in “Die Deutsche Gelehrtenrepublik” (The German Republic of the Learned), the Enlightened Utopia of German Poet Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, who lived from 1724-1803. Klopstock was a lyrical Poet whose subjective Vision marked a Break with the Rationalism that had dominated German Literature in the early 18th Century and is seen by some as the direct Inspiration of Friedrich Nietzsche. Die Deutsche Gelehrtenrepublik (1774) is a Concept that employs an educated Elite in Power of the Country for the Princely Ruler was regarded as incapable of Government. The Republic is to be ruled by Aldermen, Guilds and the People, with the First – as the most learned – having the greatest Powers, less to Guilds and People. The “Mob”, however, would get at most a Crier at the State Parliament, because Klopstock did not trust the People any popular Sovereignty. Education is the highest Good in this Republic and qualifies its Bearer to higher Offices. According to the scholarly Handling it goes in this Republic extremely Pacifist: As Punishments between the Learned estimated Klopstock “Turning the Nose up at a Person, Mocking, Laughter and Frown”.
