What is the gaining behind complaining? We are in a golden age of complaining. And I am fascinated by the passion, the enjoyment, even the necessity to complain that some people display; so much, that it is for them difficult to abandon this position. Complain (we should try to distinguish it from moaning, grievance, whining, etc.) is far from being just an expression of frustration, or lack. It unveils a desire, and a particular relation with the Other.
