Obviously overreacted: Richard David Precht attacked German Corona-policies

How far the freedom of the Individual must be subordinated to the protection of the masses? That is the question currently on many people, with a view to the existing Corona protection measures. Although some restrictions have been loosened up already - most of the shops have opened again and Meeting up with friends are permitted. Other regulations, such as Wearing a mask when shopping, we are likely to see even longer.

The "Handelsblatt" said the Philosopher Richard David Precht on the Corona-policy of the Federal government. In April, he had said to the "Frankfurter Rundschau" you could make the government in the matter of Corona-dealing, no major allegations.

Precht to the Corona Shutdown: "Obviously, in Parts of an overreaction"

About two months later, the philosopher is shown much more critical compared To the "Handelsblatt" said Precht well, you overreacted in halting the Coronavirus "obvious Parts". And further: "In the fight against the Virus, we were all also amazing and fast ready, to forgo much – also, the want to do without when it comes to climate change, to nothing. The difference is: The Corona-measures related to the protection of the grandparents, the fight against climate change is the protection of our grandchildren." Precht, had spoken out in the past, among other things, for a shift towards a more sustainable and responsible economies.

The philosopher do not believe that there will be a second Shutdown, because: "we can't pay at all, when we see, as in the first, the world economy to the brink of Ruin has driven," he said the "Handelsblatt".

For Precht, it was interesting to look at, "how excited the country, paternal Health-and-Order policies Markus Söder was adopted". He had to admit that Bayern was affected by its geographical proximity to Austria, particularly from the Coronavirus.

And also currently, the philosopher for Habeck and colleagues has no good word left.

The "Handelsblatt" quotes him with the words: "Now you have to make bold claims, because only the large claims of the devastating Situation of our planet are appropriate. But there is far too little Concrete remains." Precht describes the Green as "politically biggest disappointment of the whole disease".

again and again he emphasized in an interview with the magazine, that it would be a total shift in thinking in society in terms of climate protection. Because the Coronavirus is from the "biological vulnerability of the people" is open. Also, climate change is threatening our existence.
