The Trickle Down Illusion

We live in a strange time period. While we destroy nature in the name of consumerism and profit the underlying economic ideology is the so-called Trickle Down effect. I am not an economist, but let me try to explain how I see it. The advocates of the Neo-liberal (1) Trickle-down economics (2) assert, that the pot has to be filled up. When it is filled up, than the superfluous liquid in the pot will trickle down. The pot is synonymous for the affluent people in society and the people at the...

Worst Case

In another two and a half year we will be 1/5th into this century. There is almost no disagreement about the perils of Climate Change. Let’s assume the deniers of Climate Change are right and it is not real, still humanity has to progress and use the technology for the 21. Century. Coal was the main energy source during the 19. Century. In the 20. it was replaced by oil. Both of them fossil fuel. The 21. Century offers many more sources for energy. Solar and wind energy comes to mind....

The Eco-Centric

This is the transcript for the clip I posted on Youtube. To day I want to talk about the Eco-Centric. The Eco-Centric is a statue I created. With it I try to visualize the state of our culture. And it ain’t a nice picture. Humanity has come a long way since our beginnings. Not so long ago, only some thousand years, we were seeking shelter in caves to protect us from nature.* We were vulnerable, but we survived. And where are we now? Now nature has to be protected from us human...

Religion and Creation

EFF the book! And any other book in which people believe. These books, the Bible, the New Testament and the Quran, the scriptures of eternal knowledge, wisdom and justice and whatever god has whispered to the authors of these various books some thousand years ago. The books were at those times an important stepping stone to the development of civilisation. What was good and necessary then does not give answers to the moral questions of today. The technological advancements at the time the...

The Suffering of Nature

Our Home We once had a perfect home and we have succeeded in messing it up! I am talking about planet Earth, about Mother Nature. The world of today is not the world of two hundred years ago, not even one hundred years ago. It is not true, that human beings did not destroy nature before the Industrial Revolution (1). They did, but only in such a scale, that nature could still retain a certain equilibrium. That changed with the Industrial Revolution. Around the same time world population grew to...
