What It’s All About A Pamphlet ISBN 978-3-86789-154-7 48 pages
It’s festering. The crisis is declared to be over, when really it’s just getting started again. Millions of people are afraid of the future. A tiny minority possesses billions. The middle class is in being torn apart. Fear and poverty cause civic consensus to crumble. Racism and ecological destruction rise. Loss of trust, panicked reforms, a revolution in the media. We are experiencing the beginning of a complete transformation. Things can’t simply go on as they have.
Clever and judicious, Jutta Ditfurth brings order to the chaos of the discussion and reveals the interests of those involved. Free of alarmism, she makes it clear what this is really all about. She tells us what’s truly threatening us and what we can do about it.
Hidden beneath the din of the »news«, the cries of »reformers« and the noise of »experts« are opportunities for radical humanism. An indispensable guide for anyone who wants to get to the heart of the debate.
