The land of broken hearts

Germany: With the social democrat Olaf Scholz in the driver's seat, according to Brekke's new book, it may seem as if the "Merkelian" leadership style has taken hold. She also believes that Germany's interest in Norway is especially great right now.

A treacherous saviour

India: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's staging of himself has been successful enough to keep him at the helm for years. Arundhati Roy delivers critique. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), founded in 1925, is the role model for Modi's ruling BJP party. The founders were inspired by German and Italian fascism.

ECOLOGY:With technological measures in all directions, researchers are faced with sky-high challenges. One of them is human ignorance linked to indifference.

THE DISCLOSURES: For 20 years, US authorities lied about the war in Afghanistan.

INSULATION: Acute loneliness affects both winners and losers. Daniel Schreiber visits a wealth of hermit literature – such as Thoreau's Walden and Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. But what does social withdrawal mean today – whether it is the occupational or pandemic condition?

The world's best Catholics?

DIPLOMA: The life stories of Ich lebe reflect some of the worst war scenes we know from the last century.

VENICE: The high tide in Venice – up to 1,87 meters – is man-made, just as the large technical river barriers are described as a giant scam.

The hangover of colonialism

AFRICA: What is civilization, what is belonging, how much can a human being endure, and who are the wild, the heartless?
