Our public broadcaster aired a speech by Detlef Flintz which sounds like a page from the Great Reset playbook. And it is shockingly direct. Yes, you will consume less. Yes, you will be forced. Yes, you will produce differently. Yes, masses will have to rely on welfare. Yes, we will rebrand it as basic income. Yes, we do make comforting promises about its sufficiency. Telling the masses these things plainly is so far the most brash test balloon that I have seen.
If you want to control men, you must kill his wishes, aspirations, and everything that is holy to him. Sneer and derision can destroy what logical arguments can’t. Ayn Rand analyzed in her novel “The Fountainhead” the mechanism of authoritarianism. Amidst our freedom-suffocating crisis there are some who enjoy themselves way too much.
Elisabeth Raether smells blood. The death of capitalism is in the air. Her article, co-signed by ZEIT deputy editor-in-chief Bernd Ulrich and Correspondent for Economics Mark Schiertz, exhilarates in the face of the death of ambition, of market demand, and of hope.

Giovanni di Lorenzo is a co-publisher of the newspaper Tagesspiegel, editor-in-chief of ZEIT and host of the talkshow “3nach9” (aired by the public broadcasting agency ARD).

A Syrian refugee, oops, cough, a Palestinian from Jordan hacked a man to death in the middle of the street. Many witnesses, including children, were present. It comes with a downside. Photos and video footage are circling the internet causing headaches in newsrooms and the halls of power. Is the current legal situation able to punish citizens who show the negative effects of left-wing policies? Should new legislation be introduced? The Federal Department of Justice are already working on it. The Coalition Treaty has a stronger iron fist against unpretty images already scheduled.
