the ring

Cities can be badly run, crime-infested, dirty and decaying. Yet many people think it worth living even in the worst of them. Why? Because, I would suggest, they have the potential to make us more complex human beings. A city is a place where people can learn to live with strangers, to enter into the experiences and interests of unfamiliar lives. Sameness stultifies the mind; diversity stimulates and expands it. The city can thus allow people to develop a richer, more complex sense of themselves. Richard Sennett: Cities Without Care Or Connection

  1. Jeder Mensch sollte die Möglichkeit haben, dort zu leben wo es ihm gefällt. Dabei setze ich voraus, dass er die Bräuche und Sitten des” Gastlandes” akzeptiert und respektiert. Gleichzeitg übernimmt das “Gastland” die notwendige Verpflichtung dem “Gast” Bedingungen für ein menschewürdiges Leben anzubieten.

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
