Januar 1932 legt er »seine grundsätzlichste und gründlichste Erklärung zu dem Gesamtphänomen Brecht ( ... ) und sogleich sein nachdrücklichstes Bekenntnis zu Brechts Werk«lo ab: »Der Vortrag aus Bert Brecht, mit dem weder eine Übernahme seines Weltbildes noch seines Begriffes vom Theater beabsichtigt ist, erfolgt aus mehrfachen Gründen.

Die politische Standortbestimmung, die Kraus in ihr vornahm und die an Deutlichkeit nichts zu wünschen übrig ließ, schien der politischen Vorverurteilung von Kraus durch die Debauenbeiträge - nicht zuletzt durch ihren Einbau in die Kraus'sche Polemik der 890. Fackel - in einem 28 WB H, I, (»Kraus«), S. 353; vgl. auch Kap. 2, S. 37. 29 WB IV, 1 (»Einbahnstraße«), S. 121. 30 BB, GW 19 (»Über Karl Kraus«), S. 432. 31 Schlenstedt 1983, S. 228. 51 Maße Recht zu geben, das einen in Hinblick auf seine operative Wirkung so hochgradig ausdifferenzierten Text wie Brechts Gedicht jeder Chance, eine Diskursstörung zu erreichen, von vornherein berauben mußte.

367. 32 Die Zerstörung, die der Menschenfresser an seinem Gegner leistet, ist aber näher bestimmt: er verspeist ihn. Dabei waltet im Menschenfresser »die Zivilisation«, die sich in ihm, »wenn es sein muß, ( ... ) zu überleben« vorbereitet. Die Kommunikation zwischen Zivilisation und Satiriker findet »im eigentlichen Mysterium der Satire« statt, dem Vorgang des Verspeisens. Was auf den ersten Blick als mokante, aber doch ein-sinnige Blasphemie auf die christliche Abendmahlsszene lesbar ist, erweist sich im folgenden hingegen als produktive Neuformulierung dieses Herzstücks aus der Zivilisationsgeschichte des europäischen Bewußtseins: Wo nach christlich/abendländischer Lehre der Mensch durch Verspeisen des Leibes Christi - dessen, der die Sünden aller stellvertretend auf sich genommen hat - die Tilgung seiner Vergehen erfährt und des göttlichen Segens teilhaftig wird - und damit des Seelenheils, das vor dem Sündenfall bestand -, da versucht der Satiriker die Rettung des Menschen dadurch zu erwirken, daß er der Zivilisation - dem Heim des Menschen auf dem Weg zu den »Menschenrechten«38 - zu überleben hilft - durch das Erlösend-Verspeisen des Feindes.
