Scobel – democracy in the age of fakes. With Marie-Luisa Frick, Stephan Lessenich and Christoph Neuberger
with Christoph Neuberger Gert Scobel Marie-Luisa Frick Stephan Lessenich
Digitalisation is changing not only how political opinions are formed, but the very foundations of Western democracies. Fake news, hate speech and manipulation by adaptive algorithms undermine social peace and influence elections and political decisions. When Jürgen Habermas coined the term "structural change of the public sphere” in 1962, he trusted that there would be free spaces to discuss the tasks and goals of the people's representatives. Today he speaks of a "new structural change" that is increasingly dramatically eroding the foundations of democracy. How can we, and how can democratic institutions, positively counter these processes? Philosopher Marie-Luisa Frick, social theorist Stephan Lessenich and publicist and communication scientist Christoph Neuberger talk about these challenges. Mod.: Gert Scobel
