    See my comments on “Fahnenbildung” at
    I still find no information about this in English.

    I was unfair to Rupert Lay in earlier comments in IF-blog. I think I was a little jealous, because Roland thought him a better philosopher than me.
    Rupert’s ethical views, stripped of Latin and Greek references, seemed to reduce to “be nice to people”. This seems reasonable, even if it neglects being nice to animals, and perhaps, someday, to intelligent machines. But it seemed too obvious to be taken seriously.
    Now I realise that with Rupert’s background, as a German Jesuit, it was not so obvious. He did well to partly escape from Jesuit and Kantian over-sophistication.

    @Chris: Rupert hat vielen Menschen geholfen, kritisch nach zu denken, vermeintlich Selbstverständliches, die eigenen Gewissheiten und in Frage zu stellen. Das ist ihm gelungen ohne diese Menschen “klein zu machen”. Und ihnen so geholfen, den Weg zu sich selber zu finden. Das war in meiner Meinung sein großer Verdienst.

    So you should write the article!

    Dear Roland, it is mostly good to build people up, rather than making people small. It keeps friends and avoids unpleasantness. But it is important occasionally to stop people becoming too big, for instance Trump, Kim, Hitler, Napoleon and other bad characters. Probably Erdogan and Putin belong in this group.
    At about the date of this blog entry, you tried to make Martin Schultz small, without saying why. Also, Hans referred to Ursula von der Leyen as stupid without saying why. They both seem OK to me.
    But, I am shocked that some car manufacturers are being punished, but there is no outcry against the many politicians who knew about the diesel swindle for years.
    I think Merkel in recent years has made too many mistakes. It is time for a change.
