Rafael Capurro on Charlie Hebdo

Summit Speaker Rafael Capurro wrote a comment on the intercultural discourse revolving around Charlie Hebdo. He defends anglo-american newspapers not reprinting the French cartoons against accusations of cowardice made by German journalists. Read here.

This comment touches the core of the Summit: what are the codes of conduct in the social information space that enable the subjects of world society to live together peacefully? Without that a global sustainable information society is unthinkable.

The oldest satire journal in German language, the Swiss “Nebelspalter”, refrains from publishing Muhammad cartoons too because they say satire now seems counterproductive to facilitating the discourse (see here).
