Zusammenleben. Über Kinder und Politik
Living with children means being there for others. This essay describes what we can learn as a society. When Leander Scholz became a father, his life changed fundamentally – not just his everyday life and emotional balance, but also his world view. He learned how caring work differs from our relentless pursuit of success. In this essay, his experience of parenthood allows him to develop a new self-understanding of our society that goes beyond self-fulfillment. If, according to Scholz, we’d like to revive our democracy and think beyond the present, we have to make way for children’s political representation.
