Society - Economy

Whereas the society of past millenniae was mainly controlled and even dominated and structured by CULTURE (religion and spiritual values), the beginning of the area of enlightenment (Aufklaerung) made it possible for the “capital” and for a spiritless economy beyond Ethics to more or less monitor our civilization and our society in general. About one century ago, clerical organizations and the arts were dominant factors in our society – today, however, spiritual aspects are totally covered and hidden by mountains produced for economic interests such as all kinds of advertisements. The effects of all these influences are mostly destructive and produce great problems for the citizens to have a sound understanding of life structures.
This is the perspective taken in this column when commenting events and reports showing the degeneration of our today’s materialistic society totally controlled by the economy.
