Least self-aware aka the Antifa

If I were to award annual prizes, then I think I had a clear winner for at least one of them, every year. The political left is just at the top of the game when it comes to being unself-aware.

Privilege

This is basically a follow up from the last post. An Iowan student newspaper published an article about privilege

German Cabaret

It’s such a shame I can almost never recommend German Cabaret to my internation friends. Some of it manages to be the perfect mix of humour and critique on the ruling class.

Divide and Conquer

I kinda presume everyone is familiar with the term and its meaning already. It’s one of the most famous strategies for leading a nation, a strategy to shift the attention of the general population away from politics by distracting them with each other.

Clear Language

This article is basically a follow up on this article and this tweet as well as the discussion to that tweet afterwards. Here I want to clarify why this tweet is just wrong.

The Importance of proper education

Finally gonna write about the importance of proper education here. There are two things to clarify here. First the reasons why education is the single most important department to invest to. Secondly what’s “proper education” at least in my opinion. (I’m gonna use “high school” as equivalent for the German abitur here, since it’s pretty close. It’s basically the qualification to study at university.)

My Education

So before I talk about how education should be, I want to write down how mine was. This is gonna be off the heart, so it’s a bit of a change.

The Importance of Free Speech

It’s finally time to talk about freedom of speech. It’s the fundamental basis of our democratic systems as it gives us the power to further strive as a whole. Our systems are builded on the fact, that we can discuss anything on a reasonable level or at least that’s how it should be. Hence why it’s crucial to not make any cuts on this freedom at all, otherwise it’s just gonna come back at us.

Artists

So while browsing Twitter I see more and more tweets about artists wanting some credit for their work in one way or another. Even though I’m far from an artist, I can totally understand that. But it’s still a matter of how much.

PewDiePie continues

So PewDiePie released a new video on the WSJ. He said it means war and he meant it or so it seems for now. Great doing WSJ, like other conservative media, your annual income goes down, so you try new ways. Paywalls don’t work apparently, what a surprise to anyone who just uses the next hit on Google for the same article, because there isn’t much different among the headlines anyway. Yeah, when everyone copies each other, a pwaywall will do wonders.

Germanys political landscape

So I’ve noticed foreigners are pretty confused by Germanys political landscape and rightfully so. First I’m gonna introduce the parties a bit, then some recent history, you’ll understand my reason for doing so then.

Thoughts about anonymity etc.

For my first post I thought I’d go with something easy, so why not anonymity? I’m a big advocator of free speech, putting it above pretty much anything else. Without it healthy discussions wouldn’t be able to exist, people wouldn’t be able to test their thoughts and it’s vital for progression if you ask me. Jordan Peterson is a very good representative of this stance and he’s definitely worth checking out. But I’ll probably post my own thoughts on it as well at some point. For now I’d rather want to talk about the basis of free speech: Platforms to express it or rather their qualitative differences. In other words anonymity vs pseudonymity vs clear names.

About this blog

So this commences my own first blog, let’s see how it’ll work out and if any read this. It’s purpose is basically for me to vent out and produce some texts, albeit I’d be happy if some folks follow it regularly and spread it. That said, I’m kinda eager to write every now and then, hopefully for everyone who comes to like it, my enthusiasm won’t cool down too quickly. Or I run out of ideas to write about. But seeing the world and its people heat up with every day passing, becoming more and more extreme while name-calling everyone else either left or right, I don’t see that happening any time soon. On the other hand I’m scared to repeat myself over and over again.
