Freedom not arbitrariness

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, February 2021

Let’s talk about freedom. There is a wonderful picture we often used in 2019 – remember that year? – to explain Waldorf 100: three Pakistani boys are balancing in their school uniforms on what remains of an emergency bridge over the brown waters of a wide and fast-flowing river which separates their village from their school. What is so compelling that they are willing to make this risky crossing twice a day? [more]

Vaccine against distrust

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, December 2020

A virus is on the loose! Without a vaccine it makes us ill, us and our democratic culture. Its name: distrust. The USA is currently showing us how its would-be emperor with his permanent effusion of hate and resentment is quite cleverly hiding from us how naked he really is. [more]

Wake-up call

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, September 2020

Recently, when watching an old film, I have occasionally got the feeling: “Hey, don’t you realise you’re much too close to each other and standing in too large groups? Why aren’t you paying attention?” Only then my brain gets into gear and explains to me that a) it is a historical film, i.e. made before March 2020, b) we are all still learners and therefore c) the last word has not been spoken as to where this madness begins and ends. [more]

About life in action

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, June 2020

Are we yet sufficiently machine-compliant? Do we educate our children with the necessary rigour to adapt to the requirements of a world which is increasingly being controlled by machines? Do we teach them early enough to see this world as their actual home? Do we educate them in good time to synchronise their life with artificial intelligence? Are we really doing everything we can so that they function optimally and are not left behind in the battle for the remaining well-paid jobs? [more]

Free and democratic

By Henning Kullack-Ublick, April 2020

When our four children caught the measles one after the other over twenty years ago, the local doctor visited us because he had never seen a child with measles “live” before. We are among those fortunate ones whose children all recovered fully and, as we believe to have observed, went through a big developmental step as a result. For that they had to stay in bed for at least four weeks and at home for six.  [more]

Stars in the sky

Learning from the freedom of children

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, August 2019

A recent scene at the baggage carousel: nothing has happened for an hour, then an announcement that there will, unfortunately, be a further delay. All the waiting passengers are irritated, tiredly check their smartphones, and feel the weight of lost time! All of them? ... [more]

Listen and act!

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, July 2019

Greta Thunberg posted a thought on 17 March. On Facebook. She referred to the report Mitigation of Climate Change in which the IPCC 2014 discussed the importance of nuclear energy in relation to a low-carbon energy supply and wrote: “Let’s leave that debate until we look at the full picture.” [more]
