Born to learn

We are born to learn. Inhaling life teaches understanding, and exhaling life is the lesson. This giving and taking is the foundation of world peace. Those who receive freedom or take the liberty of excluding themselves from this process are warriors. They should always be led by learners and teachers to prevent destruction. Never should they be leaders, as the result of their policies is war. … more

Dear Americans!

In your country it is permitted to lie, and it is difficult to stop a liar because this is supposed to be freedom of speech. As a German historian, I assure you that nothing is more dangerous for a democracy than permission to lie unpunished. Think of Hitler. It is necessary to put a stop to this!

Also, you need to be able to sue the Goverment if it is commits or covers up illegal activities. … more

This War

The study of Psychology and Social Psychology taught me that when trying to make peace, while it may occur that people respond to the injustice they have experienced with retaliation, the force of this retaliation and the pain it involves should be at least a little less than that which one has experienced oneself. In this way, the trend should be towards peace and not towards still more pain. … more

Attac on Irak?

His primary reason is to provide safety and security for his country and the world. But will a war against Iraq make the world a safer place? And do the aims warrant the means?
The development of a democracy takes time. … more

Total War

Over many hundreds of years, the peoples and cultures of the world have laboriously developed laws governing common behaviour and rights, establishing numerous binding rules which the peoples hold in common.

no softness but hardness

Exclusion

For as long as anyone can remember, the instrument of exclusion has been used to define who belongs and who does not. It was also a common mechanism for establishing an identity to attach negative connotations to other people and their views by excluding them. This becomes difficult with such larger groups as regions, nations, religions, parties, political movements, organisations, etc. … more

Terror

When do I want to die?
If my feeling of life seems unbearable.

When do I kill myself?
If life is more painful than killing.

What enables me to kill others?
