Deutsche Welle’s View on World Refugee Day

Harrison Mwilima at Deutsche Welle, which is a leg of the German public broadcasting system, has designed a new form of cooperation between Africa and Europe: Europe denies all its interests and African regimes get everything they want.

For that to work Europeans have to listen. Currently they work with dictators, he abhors, just to curb migration. They should rather listen to same dictators, he proposes. The piece is another intellectual gem highlighting the quality of German public broadcasting.

The Racism Allegations Against Soccer Club President Clemens Toennis

video:

Clemens Tönnies is a successful businessman and the president of one of Germany’s wokest soccer clubs. In a speech the entrepreneur, who became a billionaire with meat factories, explained how CO2 reduction does not have to start and end with hempering the meat industry.

Tönnies mentioned that power plants in Africa would probably do more to end deforestation, population growth and their damages to the environment than the symbolic, devastating Green policies in Germany. My only gripe is that he apologized. Few people even dare to explore the idea that a lack of electricity and power blackouts could be connected to spikes in child births.

Sea Watch Captain Carola Rackete – Lock Her Up?

Alerted to medical predicaments of her passengers, Captain Carola Rackete navigated her ship into an Italian harbour without permission. Italien authorities have arrested her. She had consciously broken the law, but could she have avoided it? Probably not at that stage. But what let up to the situation? And what role in the big picture does she play? Should she still be punished for it? I confess that I don’t hold all the answers. An open talk.

Europe’s Mass Migration: The Leaders vs. the Public

“[T]he more generous you are, the more word gets around about this — which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa. Germany cannot possibly take in the huge number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe.” — Bill Gates. The annual
