Eckhoff is a regular reviewer for Ny Tid.

The danger of modified nature

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

A gigantic loss project

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

An ever-creeping feeling of loneliness

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?

CANADA: With the discovery of children's graves in Canada, the Canadians are arguably making the Irish rank as "the world's best Catholics". Children from First Nations were outright stolen, imprisoned in isolation, forced into a foreign culture, a foreign language, subjected to sexual abuse and general neglect.

Every war is a war against children

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

A place everyone wants to see, but no one wants to protect

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?

The invaders among us – stink bugs, king crabs, Nile perch and coronavirus

TRAVEL-ESSAY: In our time of catastrophic extinction of species, you may risk overlooking the catastrophic spread of some species. As we experienced on our journey with the four-wheeled home with the beetle Halyomorpha halys – or what about the king crab in Norway?

Obsolete human rights

FREEDOM: Ferdinand von Schirach will inspire a modernization of the democratic system.
