Der 1914 vom Zaun gebrochene Krieg, der bald globale Dimensionen annehmen sollte, bereitete der alten Welt ein Ende und ebnete auf ihren Trümmern den Weg in eine neue Epoche, die an Grausamkeit alles Dagewesene in den Schatten stellen sollte und die wir das „kurze zwanzigste Jahrhundert“ nennen.
The importance of national identity, the preservation of traditional Christian culture, the dan-ger of mass and illegal migration, the preservation of economic competitiveness or technologi-cal innovation, the challenges of artificial intelligence - these issues have never been so rele-vant in the European intellectual arena. The present volume contains edited versions of the presentations delivered at an international conference held in Budapest on May 23-24, 2018.
The global conflagration that erupted in 1914 exploded the old world and opened the way to a new, unprecedentedly cruel era – the 20th century. Early attempts to interpret the Great War described it as a clash between good and evil. That narrative is still shared by many. Mária Schmidt’s wide-ranging analysis attempts to transcend these diametrically-opposed explanations of the war. With a mere 100 years of hindsight, we can say that this book marks a real beginning. It will serve as a reference for many future studies.
„Language: now, as always, it all started with language. The expropritation, the agressive seizure of language has swept us frighteningly far from reality. The crisis could not be more serious. Anyone trying to break free from the strangehold of half-truths and contrived thought experiments risks nothing less than expulsion from the „paradise” of lies. True, in a few decades from now – or a few centuries – such people could become icons; but the prisoners of the putrefying present are doing their utmost to mercilessly annihilate them here and now. With this volume Mária Schmidt is again taking a risk. According to her iroinic profession of faith, however, she has no choice: what is at stake is liberty."
The peoples of Eastern Europe will never forget the grave, responsible and loving tone Ronald Reagan used when speaking about us and our suffering. The 40th President of the United States defended humanity's noblest concept, freedom, with stubborn gentleness.
Helmut Kohl is one of the most erudite and broad-minded statesmen of our age. In addition to his lasting accomplishment in the newly achieved unity of Germany, he also did much towards the reunification of the divided Europe.
Helmut Kohl ist einer der gebildetesten und über den breitesten Horizont verfügenden Staatsmänner unserer Epoche. Er schuf nicht nur durch die Herstellung der deutschen Einheit Bleibendes, sondern hat auch Wesentliches für die Wiedervereinigung des zweigeteilten Europa geleistet.
What challenges are facing the Western world in the early 21st century? What fate is awaiting the nation states? Will they continue to exist or will they be replaced by empires?
The European fraternal war demanded huge sacrifices. Over 6% of Europe's population either died or were seriously disabled. There were twenty million disabled and over eight million dead on the battlefields...
