The following pages offer a few short extracts from our German
website in order to give you some idea of our work and summaries of our books.
We are fed up with intellectual doomsters and pessimists who predict
the end of the world every other week. We enjoy confronting them with
a world that persistently refuses to perish. Self-righteous moralizing
gets on our nerves just as much as the extensive nanny state.
We are too optimistic and anti-ideological for the greens, too progressive
and unpredictable for the conservatives, and too subversive and market-economy
friendly for the social democrats.
Above all we are too cheeky and not serious enough for any of them, since
Germany confuses gloom with profundity. We would rather join those who
are looking forward to being part of a dynamic, evolutionary, and never-ending
process of changes. The future is open and will be thrilling. Inventive
talents, individual responsibility, and freedom are the best qualities
and attributes for this.
