"SHARE THINGS" : Parents share a snapshot of photos and information about their children in social media without considering the long-term consequences, and without the children's consent. [Sharenthood by Leah Plunkett]
SCENARIO: Imagine, this is the year 2050, and we look back at the origin and evolution of the coronavirus pandemic over the past three decades: both the plagues of pandemics, flooded cities, burned forests, drought and other rising violent climate disasters. We offer the following scenario for such a prospect from the future.
DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM: Piketty's latest book is about redistribution and not so much else. There is an awful lot of statistics and some fine literary examples. The hope of green capitalism seems to have completely disappeared. [Capital and ideology by Thomas Piketty, translators Peer Bundgaard, Manni Crone, Adam Diderichsen and Niels Ivar Larsen]
OTHER WORLDS? Heavier by the marketing of society and the alienation of man, the question now is: Who constitutes subject one in the struggle for another world? [The Fight for the Workers by Margit Bech Vilstrup]
A GOOD NATURE? In the philosopher Arne Johan Vetlesen's new book, the environmental problems are a symptom that our way of thinking is completely wrong. Maybe we should open ourselves up to everything around us being the soul? [Cosmologies of the Anthropocene by Arne-Johan Vetlesen Routledge]
PHOTO - GRAN CANARIA: The purpose of the book Getaway has been to investigate the Westerner when he or she "enjoys, dreams, escapes and recovers". [Getaway by Photos of Jantzen, Larsen, Jakobsen, Caspersen, Kristoffersen]
Agamben: The archeology of religion, art, politics and capitalism is not a search for any kind of origin - but a search for a foundation that raises past notions with the root. [Creation and Anarchy by Giorgio Agamben]
TOURIST OR REFUGEE? It is first and foremost the role of "tourist" that we experience the rigorous Korona initiatives. For the roaming danger there are small changes. Can a crisis also revitalize solidarity?
It was time to settle, now in our sixth year for today's MODERN TIMES. Not only is the world changing with a pandemic (see otherwise in the newspaper), but the public has also changed dramatically over the past decade.
ANTI-SEMITISM: Although depicting an alternate history of the United States during World War II, The Plot Against America paints a frighteningly realistic picture of how fascist ideology can unfold in practice.
