ARS UNA

Connecting Arts, Religion, Sciences - Alternative Philosophy of Development

  A modern Middle Way in Institutions and  Private Life  (in English and German)

Distribution problems in Germany
the most important task of the next generation

A comparison of the situation in Germany with the USA shows what our own tasks are. What role do far-right parties play in current immigrant politics? How do you deal with traumatized people?

Much may seem moderate in comparison to the US. But as many Germans apparently suppress the conditions in southern Europe, one can be horrified. I can only express disgust at the action taken in the theocracy of Bavaria, where people are forced to show Christian symbols in public buildings, with regard to the policies they represent. Merkel confessed that she like every human being made mistakes.

The most important issue from the point of view of a modern Middle Way, the ever-increasing gap in the distribution of wealth between rich and poor, hardly appeared in the negotiations. It had already become very clear last year in the analysis of the Landtag election of North Rhine-Westphalia, which had been massively lost by the SPD, that this was the point which most worried the largest number of voters.
Obviously, there is a need for a generational change, which according to the ideas represented on ARS-UNA always means a discontinuous development. It seems highly gratifying that the Young Socialists under Kevin Kuehnert are placing these supposedly unsolvable problems at the top of the issues, which, of course, other countries and other parties are also facing, especially the Greens under Robert Habeck. Fortunately, the new movement "Aufstehen" (Getting Up) again brings improvements in democracy and our attitude to pacifism into the discussion. But ARS-UNA continues to search for a modern Middle Way as a center between left and right.
