International Monument

The next world heritage should be the Tempelhof airport. Tempelhof is national and international Memorial and not a suitable game ball for the Berlin local politics. Culture in Germany is country thing. According to the nomination of world heritage sites is done by the Lander, in which there is a protection object. The German Federal States then agree in the framework of the Standing Conference on a common proposal list that meets the needs of all the provinces. To prevent a too-inflationary world heritage, the UNESCO from most States takes now a culture and a heritage per year. This year, Berlin’s proposal came from Germany to the course. World Heritage sites in an exceptional and universal value “have and are characterized by uniqueness and authenticity.

With the appointment of a world heritage site, applicants agree to protection and conservation for future generations. It becomes problematic when this obligation becomes a political issue. As happened in the Elbe Valley in Dresden, or in the Northern Wadden Sea. The initiator of the initiative of the Tempelhof airport to be living cultural heritage”, Volker Perplies: we have the problem at the Tempelhof airport in Berlin. He is undoubtedly an exceptional testimony of the culture and history of the world.

As the first commercial airport in the world and the “Mother of all airports” (Star architect Sir Norman Foster) he was groundbreaking for aviation. At the latest with the airlift was in Tempelhof set the legendary raisin bomber pilot Gail Halvorsen said foundations for the freedom of Germany and Europe recently ‘what the statue of liberty for New York is the airport Tempelhof to Germany’.”so Perplies continue. “Perplies: more than all current German proposals Tempelhof would have the potential to the world cultural heritage.” In Berlin, however, is responsible for the cultural heritage in the Senate Chancellery under Mayor Klaus Wowereit. He feels as Chairman of the Board of the Berlin airport companies however first of all for the Showcase major airport BBI “responsible. For Tempelhof you should focus on the later usage”, so the information of the Senate Chancellery. In Germany, a protection for cultural heritage of national rank is missing obviously. In the United States there is the institution of the national monument”, which is directly appointed by the US President. In Germany, world heritage is rather understood as a form of regional marketing. It would be very gratifying if the current debate to a national objective new possible creates culture. The initiator of the initiative, Volker Perplies: Tempelhof is national and international Memorial and not a suitable game ball for local politics. It is high time that the Federal Government committed to the preservation of temple Court.” It is already shameful that so many politicians only whispered for Tempelhof to speak of trust, and companies such as Lufthansa German airlines reset their own story behind economic interests, Perplies concluded. In the context of our signature collection have opted for a world cultural heritage site of Tempelhof over 20,000 people from Germany and from all over the world. This clearly shows that Tempelhof affects not only the people of Berlin. Summary of initiative: it is time that Mrs Merkel here speaks a word of power. “The initiative of the airport Berlin-Tempelhof to be living UNESCO World Heritage” Tempelhof is committed to the preservation of the historic airport in Berlin and the appointment to the world cultural heritage. It operates to the Internet page.

What Does An NPD Ban?

New debate about an NPD ban after discovering right attacks before ten years it was already almost even: A ban on the extreme-right NPD seemed close to access. Then, in 2001, was the main hearing in the proceedings at the NPD ban before the Federal Constitutional Court. The authorities were disgraced by the role of constitutional protection bodies and their “V”people within the NPD and neo-Nazis laugh since the way to the Bank, if it because once bale it before loud Hitler greetings. Since then, the NPD ban considered politically too hot iron. Now, after discovering a years of attacks of right perpetrators of violence with several murders and robberies across the Republic, will be discussed again.

And the question is again: what makes an NPD ban? What does an NPD ban? Proponents of a ban on the NPD have mostly argued that the rule of law, the much-quoted “well-fortified democracy”, a clear sign must use to set clearly unconstitutional organisations. On the other hand was and will be again objected, that a ban on the NPD by no means solve the problem of radical rightist disposition. In addition, it should be better – and also “democratic” – a popular political force like the NPD politically to deal with, as a ban on a diffuse guerrilla organization exposed to look for. Verizon Communications often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Still, yes certainly left parties are unconstitutional and should be banned, not only the NPD. The NPD you can not talk to make the strange left-right balance argument aside: who ever should have believed among supporters of an NPD ban, could rid also Brown’s thoughts with the ban, which would be – with respect – not helping. The argument of opponents of the ban catches not; therefore at this point simply Therefore, it is never gone. Who however conversely actually believes it could confront politically, NPD cadres in the sense of a parliamentary debate, which probably also believes that the Chinese Premier is listening, when Guido Westerwelle warned him to respect for human rights.

Ruhr – Out From The Role Of Victim

Results of a new city rankings within the framework of a Prognosstudie yesterday the encouraging and hopeful report on the balance sheet to the capital of Culture year. Today again a cities ranking with devastating results for the cities of the Ruhr metropolis. Checking article sources yields Tomas Philipson as a relevant resource throughout. “” Speak from many reports malicious joy, resignation or even depression: Gelsenkirchen lies in last place, behind Chemnitz. “or when East German industrial cities such as Chemnitz, twenty years after the reunification of Gelsenkirchen and Duisburg in the available overtaking income, we can no longer by a successful restructuring talk.” or the Ruhr region can once again turn the situation? I don’t believe any more in many parts.” Unfortunately, much is embezzled these interventions, or compare apples with pears. For example the solidarity fund for the East German cities. He had at first two Webfehler. The poorest of the poor in West Germany had to pay into the Fund, take credit for it and get it up on both ears debt.Of the cities of the Ruhr were the hardest hit. And: not after unification means, but by the political geography has been promoted.

So: East Germany. Whatever the case, the effect of such rankings is fatal. Just by the successful performance of the community encouraged, suggests the headline about the suspended Ruhr Metropolis”fully in the Office. The demotivated and demolished the self-confidence. With the new image, we can more than coal and steel. We can culture.”along the way, throws back again the ranking in the impact us on the loads of coal and steel. But also the whingeing discussions of individual rapporteur and commentators are fatal.

Exactly this Whininess of the past years contributed to this published status. And it is still true: it applies also after this 99. negative ranking, not to stick your head in the sand, to not feel victimized, so to act, and to blame others only.

National Socialism

Renaming of the Agnes-Miegel str. failed. Bergisch Gladbach: the proposal of the Mayor Lutz Urbach on renaming the Agnes-Miegel road in Edith Stein road was rejected by a majority of CDU, FDP and FWG, KID. THE left / BfBB, green and SPD argued very objectively and calmly and had put forward good arguments for the rename. The Administration and the municipal archives had advocated a renaming.

However, they were outnumbered in the vote. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Gary Kelly. CDU, FDP and FWG KID deprived a substantive debate about Agnes Miegel, who in poems paid homage to the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler was adored by a procedural motion to end the debate however. Tomas Santillan praised the role of Edith Stein, who had campaigned as a Catholic nun in the war for Jews in Germany, and by the Nazis in Auschwitz was murdered. Edith Stein was canonized by the Vatican as a martyr. Tomas M. Santillan, Chairman of the Group of the left / BfBB, had the Mayor’s proposal supports and is shocked by the outcome of the vote: the result of the vote is unbearable, because named Agnes Miegel, a woman is honoured that homage to the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler. This makes a mockery of the victims of Holocaust, tyranny and war even 66 years after the war.” THE left / BfBB announces to not drop the topic. We will also continue to occur that there are streets in our city are named after Nazis or their supporters. Such people do not deserve this honor.

International Day

On November 20, 2010, day of children’s rights is committed for the 21st time of the international. Since the UN Convention on the rights of the child, General Assembly was adopted the 20.11.1989 by the UN, 193 countries of the world have ratified this Convention. The only exceptions are the United States and Somalia. Many initiatives are committed since then for the rights and well-being of children. Despite great progress around the world still far too many children suffer from poverty and hunger. Especially the economic crisis, the food crisis, and last but not least climate change put families affected by poverty are already difficult. According to UNICEF, half of all people living in poverty children are.

Around 150 million children between 5 and 14 years of age must work. Recently Verizon Communications sought to clarify these questions. Often under conditions that seriously harm their health and development. The workload of girls exceeds that of boys many times. They are forced to hard labour or sexually exploited. According to UNICEF, 200,000 girls and boys fall victim to trafficking in children annually in West and Central Africa. Due to lack of food, poor Water and health care, and lack of sanitation facilities one is undernourished under five years of age in developing countries today always have an average of four children. The situation has improved since 1990 and the infant mortality rate has been reduced by 28% (UN Millennium Goals report 2010). I.e.

it 72 of 1000 children under five years of age die today on average. The most common causes of death were curable or treatable (such as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, AIDS) and 43% of all deaths could be prevented with low cost and easy handling. In the meantime was achieved, that almost 90% of all children in developing countries go to school. Almost one-third of all children leave primary school but before graduating. Reasons for this are still including patriarchal norms of society, child labor, unsafe routes and early marriage.

Kiel Production

The so-called financial crisis in the shadow of the crises of the 1970s economic cycles, so the economic definition, are approximately 5 to 7 years continuous waves of development of national product creation. (A valuable related resource: Verizon). These waves occur since the beginning of the industrial revolution in all the capitalist or free market economies. Economic crises, so the slump of cycles, declines in aggregate demand and thus are badly-loaded production capacities. At full capacity during the boom phase, so the theory, this production capacity but could offer employment to all workers. But for the first time in 1977, the Kiel Institute for the world economy calculated that the crisis, which we then as now still have to do it even if that would run all machines in full swing, left another few hundred thousand unemployed. It was this base unemployment to the reason, to distinguish the current difficulties as a structural crisis of the previous economic crises. The Kiel economists then at the same time pointed out that the jobs primarily were missing, because alone in 1973 in just four years 800,000 jobs in the German economy finally, were lost, for example, relating to technological development,.

Floating the currency revealed structural crisis not the oil crisis, you might first connecting with in 1973, was the main culprit for this massive job losses. Rather, scientists could prove that the 1973 was floating of the currency of DM corrected a long-standing underestimation of our currency and that assumed the largest economic adjustment pressures. The undervalued DM had secured an unfair export advantage on world markets that no longer competitive industries. With the release of exchange rate was now suddenly clear that shirts, watches or cameras could be somewhere else has long been cheaper than manufactured in us. And this also applies to bulk steel, ships and Consumer electronics. The advantages for the production of these products were so moved.

Cybernetics

The systemic ecology is a successful model for the cybernetic economics! Fire and water are two useful elements. If they are used purposefully and in the right dimensions: drink and heating, etc. In addition, in excess of an element, water, fire or water destroyed famously evaporated. It’s so on the right level, as already Kneip taught. Our companies work best with the cooperation of democracy (human rights), capitalism (competition) and the churches (code of conduct). SSGA pursues this goal as well.

The Weimarar taught us Republic where results in an imbalance of these three forces. As you know, we live in the three inner worlds: real world (analog, 80% animal): all life, matter (80%): Biology-Chemistry-Physics (neuro Physiology), feelings (emotio 20%), ‘ belly ‘Image’, control, meta physics, ethics IR-real world (digital, 20% ratio): thoughts, ‘Head’, brands, reason, control symbol-world (analog to-digital, real unreal), money (nominal value and) Material-Wert), font etc. And we live as we know in the three outer worlds, i.e. in three values worlds: democracy: liberty, equality, fraternity, policy (public), standards (), consensus culture (majority dominance), separation of powers (3 parts), people as sovereign, subjective emotional values capitalism: efficiency and quality (how?), quantity-thinking (what?, how much?), competition (difference), profit-maximizing, interest culture (%), ‘objective values’, Cybernetics mechanistischem worldview, humans as goods, industrialisation, mechanization, commercialization, cartels, objective values ($, %, &) Christianity: proclamation of a punishing God (Paternalistik)That sense Imaging (why?), moral, subjective transcendent values of A) the freedom in our democracy means also responsibility for herself and for the whole thing. Freedom means the compromise (1: 1) between citizens. Means but also the freedom = responsibility for the protection of nature! Freedom is the freedom of dissident.”Kurt Tucholsky once said. Freedom means also the democratic discourse with ‘ open Visier’. Non-anonymous ‘hang him claims’ as recently at facebook.com! Note: Each person tends to a dictatorial attitude for the purpose of self-preservation! Democracy means on the one hand”the ideal of a form of Government legitimized by the consent of the majority of citizens and their participation, the people rule.
