What to do about the hate and the pain?

Früher waren die Kirchen und Parteien Orte der Begegnung, wo sich Menschen austauschen konnten. Heute muss die Politik viel mehr dorthin gehen, wo die Probleme liegen, wo es weh tut – und dem Schmerz ins Auge blicken.

"People need more than a job and financial resources, they also want to understand the world, social ties and recognition. If some of this doesn't work, a society can become sick and bitter. On a psychological level, hatred is often also a painful condition," sociologist Harald Katzmair describes it in a commentary by Julia Ortner in the Vorarlberger Nachrichten.
