What is liberalism and how does it work? With Gerhart Baum and Elif Özmen
Freedom, the very foundation of our democratic society, is under attack – from within and without. Nationally and globally. Right-wing extremism and anti-Semitism in our society and the triumph of irrationality and contempt for the system promoted by autocratic agitators are responsible. Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine openly defies the treaties of the international community of nations that are supposed to secure peace and justice. Armed conflicts, human rights violations and breaches of international law are a threat to freedom and the values of democracy. German elder statesman Gerhart Baum (Menschenrechte: Ein Appel) has been a passionate and vocal advocate for human rights and liberalism for decades. He talks to professor of political philosophy Elif Özmen, whose groundbreaking work Was ist Liberalismus? has just been released. Mod.: Michael Hirz
