“It is 100 seconds to midnight.”* Concerned scientists had set the doomsday clock at that time even before the hostilities in Ukraine escalated into one of the hot spots of “World War III” – as Pope Francis used to call it. And for economists like Birgit Mahnkopf, this is also a “War against Nature”.
What is the root cause of that deplorable status of the world? Edgar Morin has called it by its name. E.g., on 14 February 2022 he twittered: “There is an unsurpassable contradiction between ethnic, nationalistic and religious closures and the need for a common consciousness of humanity in the 21st century” (translation by DeepL).
Watch the documentary The Institute for a Global Sustainable Information Society produced together with the Austrian Centre for Peace! “Heimatland Erde” (Homeland Earth) is a 20 minutes movie done by Sophie Huber-Lachner that illustrates the way that French philosopher and sociologist Morin envisions for humanity to go.

* Meanwhile the doomsday clock has been adjusted to 90 seconds to midnight.
