The fundamental problem in the world that we create and shape — all of us — every day is, in my view, that countries, politicians, peoples and individual people often forget that we are living on one planet and that therefore we necessarily have to share the world and the planet. We need to do so regardless of our individual ideology, gender, race, age, ability, class, intelligence, sexual orientation; what have you. The only way I can try to change the conflicted debates around this sharing of the earth and this creation of the world is to write and let my voice be heard in the public domain. 

In our day and age we are being confronted with fundamental problems. Problems such as the already devastating effects of climate change, wars, ongoing sexism and racism, migration, and as it seems a sort of upcoming neofascism. These problems can only be solved on a fundamental level, when we do not ignore the reality and how this reality is affecting each and every of our lives. 

The four main topics I write about are philosophy, feminism/intersectionality, critical thinking and the need to stop ecocide by changing the law as well as the economical system that is based on infinite growth. Writing about these topics can, according to me, help individual people to be more conscious about the world, our shared planet and the need for freedom and human rights for every human being.

I will use my Patrons' support to create critical and well-founded articles and essays about these topics. Mostly I want to add a different and deeper view to the debates surrounding these topics. Mostly my Patrons' support will help me to fight for human rights and the rights of the earth.

The main topics in short

1) Philosophy for me is all about thinking. It is about trying to understand the phenomena in the world and finding meaning in these phenomena and in the finite human life.

2) Intersectionality refers to a certain view of the political movement also known as feminism. As a woman my personal life is constantly determined and often barricaded by the traditional images of the feminine. These barricades are the myths of Woman. I fight these mythical representations of women, because they are widely held but nevertheless false beliefs or ideas that half of the world’s population is less capable than the other half and therefore needs to be dominated. This kind of feminism fights racism, agism, xenophobia and any other form of discrimination. 

3) Critical Thinking is about sovereignty and sappere aude which is Latin for: daring to know or daring to be wise. Thinking critically basically means to constantly examining our own prejudices, putting them on trial, testing them by a criterion that is bigger than us, and thus transforming them into a tested judgement.

4) The need to fight ecocide is all about making a future possible. Once you have opened your eyes to how our future on planet earth — and the future of the generations to come — might look like if we continue treating the earth merely as something that we own, as opposed to the reality that the earth is the only home that we have, you will necessarily recognize that we have to preserve our home, make it stay alive, help it recover and get healthy again in order to be the nurturing shelter and provider for all of its inhabitants. We are in a pressing need of a paradigm shift in our thinking and perception about our finite life on earth: we need to shift away from a property-based thinking towards a responsibility-based thinking. Once an individual has gone through such a Gestaltswitch, she will have the insight that we need to act based on a nuanced view on society — taking into account the existing reality of diversity and multiplicity. Not only as individuals, but also as parents, as activists, as scientists and scholars, as citizens, and most importantly as entrepreneurs and politicians. There is an urgent necessity to change our (business) culture in terms of morality and normativity and thus in terms of ethical norms and values.
