by Ulrich Beck

have to entail a loss of national sovereignty,

We are living in a world that is beyond controllability.
- Ulrich Beck

it became clear to me that it was risk,
not only in technology and ecology, but in life and employment,
too.
- Ulrich Beck

Initially, the horrific images of September 11th triggered
an enormous wave of solidarity.
- Ulrich Beck

a deeply felt hate that cannot easily be overcome with a few good words.

to which we must first open our eyes.
- Ulrich Beck

Nonetheless, we continue to be obsessed with finding
or inventing a European nation which,
as in the nation state, guarantees homogeneity and
thus an appropriate form of democracy and centralized government.
- Ulrich Beck

But it then very soon became clear that the response
of a war against terrorism,
initially conceived of in a metaphorical sense,
began to be taken increasingly seriously and came to
entail waging a real war.
- Ulrich Beck

You need education.
You need subsistence protection.
We need jobs and social security.
These are preconditions under which it will perhaps
be possible to deal with these complex circumstances.
- Ulrich Beck

That was the first major social sciences conference
at which social scientists from all cultures wanted
to reach a consensus on whether we can continue to
pursue a national course in the social sciences or
whether we need a cosmopolitan path that also connects us in a new way.

We must ask which voice was actually attempting to
make itself heard and saw no other possibility of gaining a hearing.
To that extent, for a while this also represented a
forced opening of a cosmopolitan view.

the largest military power was unable to stop such

a possibility in the future.
Precisely this is the background to the United States' military interventions.

Thus, the concept of open borders is a very selective concept,
one that is not taken seriously at all in the experience of non-Europeans.

the more modernity there is,
the less religion.
In my theory we can realize that this is wrong:
atheism is only one belief system among many.
- Ulrich Beck

relinquish national powers is unhelpful.
No, indeed, precisely the opposite is the case:
if done in an intelligent way,
you attain the sovereignty to better solve national
problems in cooperation with others.
- Ulrich Beck

Suddenly terrorism was the central risk.
