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.

Ayn Rand Versus Newspaper ZEIT

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. The title: Do I Need This? (German: Brauch ich das?)
