Gertrud  Höhler - Human dignity shall be inviolable: The Costs of Corona


Have we betrayed our values during the Corona crisis?

In her sharp, evocative analysis, Gertrud Höhler asks the expedient questions: Were we too fast in following the example set by authoritarian states? Why does health policy separate people from one another in order to save them? Why are old people being fenced in, and children no longer allowed to sing? Does Corona policy really need to shut down the market economy?

If health policy destroys more than the virus could devastate, then it comes at the expense of dignity, which Germany's Basic Law calls "inviolable": "To respect and protect it shall be the duty of all state authority".

A passionate plea for dignity, a decisive impulse for the necessary debate on the appropriateness of corona measures!

• Gertrud Höhler's ingenious and passionate analysis shows that there would have been alternatives to the lockdown
