Gunter Dueck über die allgegenwärtige Warnkultur und den damit verbundenen Mangel an Aufklärung.
Daily Dueck 175: Ich ärgere mich oft, dass ich immer nur gewarnt werde, aber nicht aufgeklärt. In Südafrika war überhaupt alles gefährlich - ist das so? Oder sagt es der Reiseleiter zur Sicherheit, dass es keine Scherereien gibt? Tiere sind gefährlich, Leute in der Nacht, Aktienkäufe, New York, Leute mit andersartigem Aussehen... Im Grunde herrscht ein Mangel an Verstehen. Wenn dieser als Gefahr verkleidet wird, sieht man das, was nicht verstanden ist, wahrscheinlich bald als BÖSE an. Und diese Uminterpretation verändert die Welt zum schlechten.
