I held a conference in Harvard where Americans said
by Ulrich Beck

I held a conference in Harvard where Americans said

too.

controlled in a centralized way is now erroneous.

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

modernity overcomes religion.
- Ulrich Beck

Relinquishing apparent national sovereignty does not
have to entail a loss of national sovereignty,
but can actually be a benefit.

Neither science, nor the politics in power,
nor the mass media, nor business, nor the law nor even
the military are in a position to define or control risks rationally.
- Ulrich Beck

You could say that we are living in an internally globalized country.
- Ulrich Beck

All theory of modernity in sociology suggests that
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

This experience actually means the very opposite:
the largest military power was unable to stop such
a sensitive attack and will be unable to rule out such
a possibility in the future.
Precisely this is the background to the United States' military interventions.
- Ulrich Beck

That was the first major social sciences conference

but something that is taking place in the present and
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

The idea that you surrender your identity when you
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

When they come to Europe, they are confronted by still closed borders.
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.
- 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

And therefore we must seek dialogue in this networked world.
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.
- 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

And it also became clear that these conditions of inequality
and historical injustice have given rise to a feeling of hate in the world -

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

One day, his precocious student accidentally broke the cup.
Hearing the footsteps of his teacher,
the student held the pieces of the cup behind his back.
When the master appeared, he asked: "Why do people have to die?"
"This is natural," explained the teacher.
"Everything has to die and has just so long to live."
The student showed the shattered cup, saying,
"It was time for your cup to die."
