“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle
Dear friends of freedom
Some of you already know that I have been busy over the last months making a documentary film about Covid together with my friend James from Washington D.C..
The aim was to look at the Corona crisis from different angles and to interview independent thinking personalities and recognized experts in their fields who go through life consciously and uphold the values of individual freedom.
The result is a large number of valuable interviews, which we use as a basis for the film. We are approaching the film in a novel way, by releasing all the interviews in full over the course of a month up to the release of the final film. We are convinced that this approach not only provides full transparency, but also supports the necessary and fruitful “competition of ideas”. The final film, under the title “Planet Lockdown”, will be a compilation of these interviews, which will be released within the coming weeks.
For everyone who is interested and wants to accompany us on our journey, I recommend to watch the full interviews under the following link. I invite you to subscribe for more updates, that will help you identify more “signals” in a world full of “noise”.
We have financed everything ourselves and do not want to do any online advertising, as it only distracts from the original content and purpose of our work. The goal is to reach as many people as possible and to encourage them to think for themselves. Anyone who would like to contribute financially can do so, knowing that the funds will be used for the professional editing of the final film. It would also be very much appreciated if you just send and share the interviews with friends and people you care about.
Herewith I am pleased to send you the first of two interviews with Václav Klaus, the second president of the Czech Republic. He is a valued friend, an independent thinker, and a champion of liberty, whom I hold in the highest esteem.
I wish everyone only the best for 2021 in the hope that people will understand that without a free and enlightened society there remains only barbarism.
