Various thoughts and links

23/3/23 Today I can’t help thinking how much we must keep the courage to fight for a freedom of thought – for everyone! – every single day.

In Austria, there is a province, called “Niederösterrreich”, where a new local government just set a rule in place, according to which school children are obliged to speak German (rather than *what other language in particular*?) during recess. This is so close to madness, that it leaves me speechless. Being so openly intolerant and discriminating towards minorities is new even in this country, where we have seen appaling developments during the past years and decades in certain respect. It sadly reminds us of times we believed to be over for good.
