Noch feindseliger geht nicht – Der Fall Monika Maron und das alternativlose deutsche Meinungsklima
Deutschland scheint sich eingerichtet zu haben zwischen links oder rechts, Gut oder Böse. «Umstritten» heisst das Zauberwort, mit dem ein konstruktiver Dialog erstaunlich erfolgreich verhindert werden kann. Weshalb der Fischer-Verlag mit dem Rausschmiss einer grossen Autorin einen Fehler gemacht hat.
Claudia Schwartz NEUE ZÜRCHER ZEITUNG – 2. Dez 020 – Wann hat die Stimmung in Deutschland derart umgeschlagen? Ausgerechnet in diesem Land, das ich gerade wegen seiner Debattenkultur so schätzte. Weil hier jeder Einwand – ja: auch gerne bis zum Exzess – diskutiert wurde.

In his first major address since Joe Biden’s election, the Supreme Leader downplayed the prospect of negotiating an end to U.S. sanctions, instead urging Iranian officials to focus on increasing the country’s self-reliance and solving its deep economic problems.
On November 23, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei attended a meeting of the Supreme Council of Economic Coordination, one of Iran’s top policymaking bodies. As the country copes with record-high coronavirus infection rates, its economy continues to deteriorate—indeed, Khamenei’s decision to address the meeting in person rather than by video highlights the gravity of the situation. In speaking to the council, he stated his guidelines for what the regime’s senior economic and political officials should and should not do to solve the country’s hardships, emphasizing the following themes:
