Présentation de l'éditeur
Meinungsfreiheit ist ein Grundrecht. Doch im Alltag begegnet man so manchem Denk- und Redeverbot. Thilo Sarrazin analysiert in seinem neuen Hörbuch den grassierenden Meinungskonformismus. Wer Dinge ausspricht, die nicht ins gerade vorherrschende Weltbild passen, der wird gerne als Provokateur oder Nestbeschmutzer ausgegrenzt. Mit gewohntem Scharfsinn prangert Thilo Sarrazin diesen Missstand an, zeigt auf, wo seine Ursachen liegen, und benennt die 14 vorherrschenden Denk- und Redeverbote unserer Zeit.
2 MP3-CDs, ungekürzte Lesung, Hördauer ca. 13 Std.
Sprecher: Michael Schwarzmaier arbeitet als Schauspieler und Sprecher. Nach einem geisteswissenschaftlichen Studium besuchte er zunächst die Schauspielschule in Berlin und stand dann zehn Jahre an Theatern in Deutschland und Südamerika auf der Bühne. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

At least we know now where Western Civilisation is headed: To lowest-denominator equality.
Those who know (of) him are also split into two groups: the first condemn him for a controversial, racist book he wrote some years ago about politics, immigration, intelligence and education; the second group have read the book. Amongst those who belong to the first group, who have condemned the work out of hand, is the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, who openly admits that, despite her condemnation, she has not read the work, and does not intend to.
Thilo Sarrazin's new work - Der Neue Tugendterror (The New Virtue Terror) covers the reactions to his first work in some great detail. The opening chapters detail how his work was treated by the press and certain politicians, by those who are involved in education and immigration and by the public at large. It is a story of two widely differing camps. The press lambasted his work as being racist, as putting immigrants down as second class citizens, as defiling the excellent German education systems, with all its successes and failures. More than this though, they demanded that action be taken against him for his opinion. Not, you should note, for the facts and figures he relates in his book Deutschland schafft sich ab (Germany Destroys Itself), but for his personal opinion and, above all, for being Thilo Sarrazin, for having a personal opinion.
As he shows in the opening chapters, there was little which could be attacked in the book itself, since it is based on facts and figures which are openly available, which support his theories, his opinion. However, it broke one of the many taboos in Germany, it spoke about a society which is being decimated by bad immigration policies, by failing educational systems, by the perceived need not to upset or insult minorities.
The attacks against Sarrazin went so far that his chosen political party, the Social Democrats, moved to have him thrown out of the party and convened a disciplinary committee with just this in mind. What is not so well publicized is the fact that the three 'judges' on this committee found absolutely nothing wrong with his facts and figures, and the move to have him excluded from party membership failed.
But his latest work goes far more into details about how taboos are set up in Germany and some other countries, and the harm that they do to society. Leaving aside the personal attacks against him and his wife - who was not involved in the book, but felt the brunt of political and journalistic anger - he looks in some depth at the changes society in Germany has gone through, often thanks to very ill-conceived notions of what is politically correct and what we, as a modern society, should be doing to balance out the inequalities of modern, everyday life, not just in educational circles, but also concerning immigration, poverty and wealth and the latest fad of the quota system.
His work includes a series of scenarios which will be familiar to many: how inequality is caused; how the wealthy are responsible for poverty; how the common worker on the factory floor is used in the worst sense of the word; how society is trying to force immigrants to assimilate, to fit in with a certain plan or vision. Reading these fourteen scenarios, you get the feeling that this is exactly what politicians and the press are trying to force upon people: equality at any price; reduction of wealth; higher education for all, no matter what their intellectual or physical capabilities.
And then you read his answers to these movements, and come to see how ridiculous many of them are; how equality in education is an impossibility; how dumbing-down the capabilities of those who can work logically, intelligently and learn quicker to give those of lesser abilities a good chance of a higher education, a better job in later life through better school certificates and diplomas, is causing a real brain-drain. Integrating those with a higher learning capability with those who cannot keep up in order to enhance the lesser capabilities, at the cost of real advancement by those who grasp a problem and can work it through - whether mathematical, logic or any of the other sciences - quickly and efficiently.
Thilo Sarrazin's latest book is an eye-opener for those who wish to see through the propaganda - and clearly not aimed at either the press or incumbent politicians - and see in which direction the country is going. And it relates across many different models: what is relevant in Germany today is also true of other European countries, of the United States and the United Kingdom. The idea that everyone should be equal, that individuality in personality and learning capability should be stamped out, that the highly intelligent should work through exactly the same educational system and curriculum as those with an IQ belong average in the same classroom, that the higher educational certificates should be made easier for those with learning difficulties, is doomed to failure.
This work speaks against the present line of thought in politics and education - as forced through by politicians - and harks back to the days when ability brought students further. In particular it speaks out against the clear and well-defined bias of the mass -media, politicians and other well-meaning institutions, the creation of new taboos, the renaming of portions of society - such as Negro to black to African-American or Gypsy to Sinti and Roma to impoverished immigrants from Bulgaria - as a way of stopping discrimination and raising the educational or integration standards. It is a work which I highly recommend for anyone who wants to see behind the headlines, behind the calls for change on the hustings prior to an election, and into the core of German society.
