Striving for a Progressive Israel [Audio]  

Speaker(s): Isaac Herzog | In his lecture Mr Herzog will argue that most Israelis want to live in a country that is not only secure, but just, democratic, liberal and at peace with its neighbours – as envisioned by Israel’s Declaration of Independence. Israel faces complex divisions within its society, and unique security threats. Mr Herzog will set out how Israel can overcome the politics of fear, and its internal divisions, to build an Israel which fully embodies the vision of its founders. Isaac Herzog, son of former Israeli President, Chaim Herzog was born in 1960. He completed his army service with the rank of major (res.). He holds a law degree from University of Tel Aviv and is an attorney by profession. In November 2013 Herzog was elected Chairman of the Labor Party and assumed the position of Leader of the Opposition in the Knesset. In December 2014 Herzog formed a political alliance with MK Tzipi Livni's Hatnua Party, making the newly-created Zionist Union Israel's largest Centrist political party, and Isaac Herzog was the leading candidate to replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the national elections in March 2015. Isaac Herzog served as Secretary of the Economic-Social Council (1988-1990), as Government Secretary (1999-2001). He was elected to the 16th Knesset in 2003 as a member of the Labor Party. In January 2005 Isaac Herzog was appointed for the first time to a cabinet position in the Israeli Government, and served as the Minister of Housing and Construction. In May 2006, he was appointed Minister of Tourism. In March 2007 he was appointed Minister of Welfare and Social Services & Minister of the Jewish Diaspora, Society and the Fight against Anti-Semitism. In February 2009 he began his second term as Minister of Welfare and Social Services. In January 2011 he resigned from the government.

Marken und die Verantwortung für das Große, Ganze  

  Vor kurzem verstarb der ehemalige Präsident der Bundesrepublik Deutschlands, Roman Herzog. Bevor er Bundespräsident wurde, war er Präsident des Bundesverfassungsgerichts. Mit der Amtszeit Herzogs wird vor allem dessen berühmte „Ruck-Rede“ assoziiert.   Den traurigen Umstand seines Ablebens möchte ich zum Anlass nehmen, auf Parallelen zwischen damals und heute einzugehen sowie die immens wichtige Funktion eines Wertekatalogs auch für Marken zu thematisieren. Interessant an der Person Herzog ist, dass er als Politiker selbst eine Marke verkörperte und insofern zur Verdeutlichung der Mensch-Marke-Analogie besonders gut geeignet ist. Übrigens: Nicht nur, dass Politiker wie Marken wahrgenommen werden; ihre Images bauen auf Wertekonstellationen auf, die auch Marken begründen und tragen.   Der Bundespräsident ist Staatsoberhaupt und damit ranghöchster Repräsentant der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Die in Deutschland „Grundgesetz“ genannte Verfassung enthält in ihren ersten Artikeln die unverhandelbaren, allgemeingültigen Werte, auf denen das gesamte Leben in diesem Staat basiert. Der Bundespräsident ist sozusagen der Hüter des die Werte-DNA der BRD enthaltenden Heiligen Grals, aus dem sich sämtliche weiterführenden und ergänzenden legislativen, judikativen und exekutiven Codices ableiten. Sie bilden den Markenkern der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Jedes Gesetz, jede Vorschrift und jede Verordnung muss zwingend mit diesen Werten kompatibel sein.   Kernaufgabe des Bundespräsidenten ist die Anmahnung, der Erhalt und die Repräsentation der im Grundgesetz verankerten Werte, an deren erster Stelle die Würde des Individuums steht. Die Gründer der BRD und Väter des Grundgesetzes bemühten sich darum, das zukünftige Staatswesen auf Grundlagen zu stellen, die aller Voraussicht nach auch in Zukunft Bestand haben würden. Dass dies notwendig wäre, darüber waren sie sich aufgrund ihrer historischen Erfahrungen sicher. Und deshalb enthält das Grundgesetz auch einen Artikel, der die Menschen dazu aufruft, die Werte, auf denen ihr Zusammenleben basiert, im Notfall mit allen Mitteln zu verteidigen.   Roman Herzogs Ruckrede Frustriert und bestürzt über die pandemisch grassierende Mutlosigkeit hielt Herzog 1997 seine berühmteste Rede („durch Deutschland muss ein Ruck gehen!“), die sich mit dem damals in Deutschland herrschenden, das Land lähmenden Reformstau auseinandersetzte. Der Ruck, den Herzog forderte, sollte die Politik, aber auch die deutsche Öffentlichkeit zu mehr Mut bewegen: Mut, aus den starren Korsetts der Besitzstandwahrerei auszubrechen und Neues zu wagen; sich für die Zukunft fit zu machen und nach vorne zu bewegen. Deutschland galt damals als „kranker Mann Europas“. Nichts ging mehr. Die Parteien blockierten sich gegenseitig über ihre ungleichen Mehrheiten in Bundestag und Bundesrat.   Herzog sprach die in vielen Ländern der Welt herrschende unglaubliche Dynamik an. Länder, die bis vor kurzem noch als Sorgenkinder galten, zeigten nun sogar den sonst so forschen Bayern, wo der Bartl den Most holt. Herzog schwärmte von den kühnen Zukunftsvisionen, die in den aufsteigenden Regionen entworfen und voller Enthusiasmus umgesetzt wurden; diese Begeisterung und die Bereitschaft, Visionen so rasch wie nur möglich in die Tat zu bringen, beflügelten die Menschen zu immer neuen Leistungen.   „Was sehe ich dagegen in Deutschland? Hier herrscht ganz überwiegend Mutlosigkeit, Krisenszenarien werden gepflegt. Ein Gefühl der Lähmung liegt über unserer Gesellschaft.“ Weiter hielt Herzog den Deutschen vor Augen, dass sie angesichts der Globalisierung und der schon damals sich deutlich abzeichnenden demographischen Probleme mit massiven Wohlstandsverlusten würden zu kämpfen haben, sollten sie nicht endlich beherzt die Aufgaben anpacken und ihre Gegenwart und Zukunft gestalten.   „Lassen wir uns nicht täuschen: Wer immer noch glaubt, das alles gehe ihn nichts an, weil es ihm selbst noch relativ gut geht, der steckt den Kopf in den Sand. (…) Was ist los mit unserem Land?“ Nicht zu fassen: Die gesamte Rede ließe sich Wort für Wort auf die heutige Zeit übertragen.   Zwar weist Deutschland seit einigen Jahren als Konjunkturlokomotive Europas die mit Abstand besten Wirtschaftsdaten des Kontinents auf.   Allen tollen Daten zum Trotz, die ohnehin nur die rein numerische, oberflächliche Wirklichkeit wiedergeben, befindet sich Deutschland heute aber wieder in einer Art von Starre. Auf die individualpsychologischen Ursachen, allen voran die weltberühmte „German Angst“ habe ich schon früher hingewiesen. Aber auch die Politik trägt eine große Verantwortung für die degressive Paralyse, unter der die deutsche Gesellschaft leidet. Heute geht es nicht mehr so sehr um die Reformierung des Arbeitsmarktes: Heute geht es um die Digitalisierung.   Damals, 1997, war die Marke BRD in Gefahr. Damals war Mut das geeignetste Instrument, dieses Land wieder auf Hochglanz zu bringen. Mut, Verantwortung für eine gute Sache zu übernehmen ist ein klares Zeichen von Intelligenz. Intelligenz ist erforderlich, um komplexe Phänomene wie Menschen, Marken und Gesellschafen zu verstehen und zu gestalten. Die Bereitschaft zur bewussten Verantwortung ist die Bedingung für nachhaltiges und zukunftsorientiertes Handeln.   Mit dem Grundgesetz gab sich die BRD einen selbstverpflichtenden Wertekatalog, dessen Umsetzung Herzog offenbar gefährdet sah. Der mangelnde Mut zu Reformen, die das Land wieder up to date bringen würden, gefährdete nämlich vice versa auch den Bestand der Werte bzw. führte diese ad absurdum.   Auch Mut ist ein Grundwert Die Werte-DNA, auf der das Leben in der BRD beruht, führte zum raschen Aufstieg des Landes in die Champions League der Wirtschaftsnationen. Dabei ist die wirtschaftliche Macht, über die ein Land verfügt, nicht nur ein Selbstzweck. Sie ist auch ein Instrument zur Verteidigung der Werte, auf deren Boden sie gediehen ist – zumal die Werte eines Staates die Grundlage für das wirtschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Involvement der in diesem Staat lebenden Menschen bilden. Werden die Werte nicht mit aller Konsequenz gelebt, beschützt und verteidigt, beschädigt oder zerstört dies die Identifikation der Menschen mit dem Land, in dem sie leben. Solche Identifikation ist aber für den Fortbestand des Ganzen unerlässlich. Natürlich erfordern die Umsetzung, der Erhalt und die Pflege von Werten teils massive Anstrengungen und Mühen. Aber es lohnt sich. Den Herausforderungen auszuweichen würde nämlich das gesamte Projekt infrage stellen, weil die Ablehnung von Verantwortung eine positive Zukunftsgestaltung konterkariert. Deshalb ist mangelnder Mut unverantwortlich. Es nützt nichts, sich einen Wertkatalog zu geben, der sich auf das Leben jedes einzelnen Individuums sowie die Gesellschaft als Ganzes bezieht, wenn man diese Werte dann nicht mutig und beherzt mit Leben erfüllt. Es wäre dann nur eine Lüge, eine Fassade. Dahinter gähnende Leere.   Was für das Grundgesetz und dessen Erfüllung mit Leben und Verantwortung gilt, gilt auch für Menschen und Marken: Entweder ich strenge mich an, die identitätsstiftenden und die eigene Weiterentwicklung bedingenden Elemente argumentativ zu verteidigen, sie zu pflegen und zu ertüchtigen –  also den Notwendigkeiten und Bedingungen anzupassen, die zu einer bestimmtem Zeit herrschen –  oder ich gehe unter. Anpassung bedeutet dabei aber nicht, sich bis zur Unkenntlichkeit zu verbiegen; vielmehr bedeutet es ein intelligentes Agieren aus den selbstgegebenen Werten heraus. Nicht verallgemeinbare, insbesondere die Freiheit des Einzelnen untergrabende, subjektive Werte, die ein solches Agieren hemmen oder gar verunmöglichen, sind als lebenshemmende Elemente von vornherein zu verwerfen. Sie würden auch der Marke die Luft abschnüren, die sie zum Atmen benötigt.   Wertmarken Wie Orientierung gebende Leuchttürme heben sich starke, lebendige Marken vom Einerlei und Allerlei ab. Als Wertekomprimate übernehmen sie eine immens wichtige Steuerungsfunktion. Ihre Sogwirkung bestimmt die Marschrichtung einer Gesellschaft mit. Insbesondere der digitalen Markenführung wächst eine immer größer werdende Verantwortung zu, weil sie die die Erhaltung und den Transport von Werten in einem Medium zu verantworten hat, das aufgrund seiner Missbrauchsanfälligkeit in vieler Hinsicht wertezersetzend wirken kann. Umso wichtiger ist es, mit aller Kraft dagegenzuhalten und eine digitale Markenführung zu praktizieren, die den destruktiven Tendenzen entgegenwirkt.   Das sind wir uns und unseren Kindern schuldig.   Noch ein wichtiger Aufruf: Es geht nicht ohne Dich. Und deshalb ist es sehr wichtig, dass Du diesen Podcast mit Deiner Bewertung bei iTunes unterstützt.

Werner Herzog on Death, Executioners, and Advice for Filmmakers  

This week, we celebrate legendary film director Werner Herzog’s birthday with a thrilling conversation from the archives. In 2012, Herzog came to the Library to discuss his most recent film, “Into the Abyss,” as well as his four-part television series, “Death Row.” In this conversation with NYPL’s Paul Holdengraber, Herzog talks about crime, human nature, and why he stands so firmly against capital punishment.

Werner Herzog, Film Director  

Draw up a list of the greatest living film-makers and Werner Herzog would surely occupy a prominent place. He is responsible for some of the most wildly beautiful images captured on film. If you have seen Fitzcarraldo you won’t have forgotten the steamship being hauled over a mountain. He is seen as the film industry's obsessive genius, the director who once threatened to shoot his lead actor to prevent him quitting. After five decades making movies, is Werner Herzog's love of film as intense as ever? (Photo: Werner Herzog with an award during the Lola - German Film Awards in 2013.

Ihre Eltern engagierten sich in einer kommunistischen Organisation, die Mutter war Jüdin: Die Repressionen gegen die Familie ließen nicht lange auf sich warten. „Wenn sie dann noch aus ihrer Wohnung rausmüssen und nach Milbertshofen in diese Drecksbuden mit Holzpritschen. Eine Woche vorher haben sie noch eine Wohnung gehabt mit einem Kleiderschrank und Teppich und Vorhängen...“ Die Stimmencollage aus den Berichten der beiden Brüder markiert wichtige Punkte und Strecken auf der Karte des NS-Terrors gegen Juden in München: das Rathaus, die Lindwurmstraße, von der Herzog-Max- zur Herzog-Rudolf-Straße, von der Knorrstraße nach Berg am Laim, vom Wittelsbacher Palais zum Hauptbahnhof Richtung Theresienstadt. Seit 1945 leben die Brüder wieder in München und sind bis heute in der Erinnerungspolitik aktiv engagiert.

It turns out that when it comes to starship navigation, like all things, you get what you pay for.  The orkish warphead brought onto the Brilliant Resolve had a very unique method of interacting with the warp runes that caused the ship to move very quickly through the warp, although sideways and partly inside out.  The crew is now interacting with horrors man was not meant to know and finding themselves slightly possessed by the horrors of the warp.

A major windfall comes for the crew of the Brilliant Resolve.  In the encounters on her SOS response, Faydra has ended up with the Irradial Cogitator known as “Dead Heat.”  She now has it back on her ship and at her mercy for questioning and buckled down to a seat in a makeshift brig.  They find that he constructed the new megaweapon for The Schismaticus Collective on commission, with no particular ties to the organization.  In asking for help on how to destroy his creation, Dead Heat suggests that it may be far less simple than Faydra hoped.

Rogue Trader – Collective Threat Episode 2  

Getting a planet back has turned out to be much more difficult than Faydra Ramirez expected.  In their search of a distant planet, the captain and crew of the Brilliant Resolve are finding themselves deep in ruins surrounded by odd mechanical beetles.  They appear to be odd carrion feeders of both flesh and cybernetics.  Mysteries of the ancient ruins deepen.

Forty-year-old Lord-Captain of the Brilliant Resolve and current bearer of the Ramirez Dynasty’s Warrant of Trade. After a scandal that eventually saw her family’s prized Garden World confiscated and resold, she’s become increasingly unwilling to compromise her Imperial ideals, even if it means losing a chance at profit. Or being reasonable. A military commander first and foremost, she relies on the expertise of her crew to keep the Dynasty’s accounts ready to fund the return of as many planets as possible to the Emperor’s light.

In memoriam: Roman Herzog, Altbundespräsident - 10.01.2017  

"Durch Deutschland muss ein Ruck gehen" - dieses Zitat ist untrennbar mit ihm verbunden: mit Roman Herzog, Bundespräsident a.D.. Am 10. Januar 2017 starb er mit 82 Jahren. Im November 2011 war Roman Herzog zu Gast bei "Eins zu Eins. Der Talk" und sprach dort nicht nur von den Höhepunkten seiner Karriere, sondern auch darüber, warum er in der Schule nie abgeschrieben hat. Moderation: Daniela Arnu.

"Menschlich, vernünftig, aber eben auch mutig"  

Als Roman Herzog 1994 im dritten Wahlgang zum Bundespräsidenten gewählt war, musste er bei seiner Dankesrede mit den Tränen kämpfen. Selten hat der Jurist und frühere Verfassungsrichter so viel Emotion gezeigt. Jetzt ist Herzog im Alter von 82 Jahren gestorben. Hans-Olaf Henkel, früherer BDI-Vorsitzender, bezeichnet ihn im Gespräch mit Oliver Rehlinger als höchstrangigen Unterstützer derjenigen, die im Lande was ändern wollte. So viel Mut wie Roman Herzog habe noch keiner gezeigt.
