Truth is a big word and, especially in politics, a requirement that can hardly be fulfilled. Social and economic coexistence is almost always about asserting interests and distributing resources and not about finding the truth of all. The 2024 European elections are therefore an opportunity to shed light on many truths that are being widely publicized. Regardless of whether it is right-wing conspiracy theories or left-wing climate end-time predictions, hybrid troll factories or AI-controlled disinformation campaigns, democracy is in danger and Europe is more insecure than ever before. Wars and crises dominate the discussion, the media fuels the hysteria. The 10th European Tolerance Talks in the Carinthian mountain village of Fresach from 15 – 18 May, 2024 will show the intentions and mechanisms behind the scenes; the program will be presented at the Oberbank Vienna’s Club Carinthia. Organizer: Denk.Raum.Fresach & Club Carinthia Date: Thursday, February 15th, 2024, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m Location: Club Carinthia Oberbank, Schwarzenbergplatz 5, 1030 Vienna Topic: TRUTH – What is real? The literary scholar and Karl Kraus expert Gerald Krieghofer, who caused a (media) sensation with his latest book “The Best Wrong Quotes of All Time”, was able to be won over for the keynote speech in Vienna. Krieghofer has specialized in uncovering “cuckoo quotes” and is in demand as a quote expert and fact checker for many well-known media throughout the German-speaking region, including Süddeutsche, FAZ, Deutschland-Radio and Die Zeit. Afterwards, the lawyer, human rights expert and NEOS MP Stephanie Krisper, the psychotherapist Margarethe Prinz- Büchl, the computer scientist and philosopher Peter Reichl and the President of the Board of the European Tolerance Talks, Hannes Swoboda, discuss the opportunities and risks for fair elections in the super election year 2024 in view of increasingly drastic attempts at manipulation from left and right. The program presentation can also be followed via YouTube and Facebook. Registration for the publicly accessible event: email@example.com or phone +43 (0)664 3826048.
