Rain Kooli: Häälekas populismivastasus võib selle seemned laiemale paisata

Rain Kooli osundab, et populismi kritiseerides tuleb olla tähelepanelik selles osas, kuidas kriitikat teha, sest väga häälekas kriitika võib tuua soovitule vastupidise tulemuse. Aga kuidas siis olulistel teemadel rääkida? Kuidas leida tasakaal liigse teravuse ja liigse vaoshoituse vahel nii, et tulemus on piisav teravus ja selgus? Lingvistikaprofessor Ruth Wodak on meieni toonud mõiste populistlik igiliigur. … Continue reading Rain Kooli: Häälekas populismivastasus võib selle seemned laiemale paisata

Rääkigem perevägivallast! Elevant toas on macho-kultuur

Evelyn Höglund tõlkija ja rootsi keele õpetaja Riigikogulane Kalle Muuli kirjutab 14. märtsi Postimehes, et pagulaste vastuvõtmine Eestisse tuleb vähemalt ajutiselt peatada, kuna jõhkrad kuriteod kahes Eestisse ümber paigutatud pagulasperes näitavad, et politsei eelnev taustakontroll ei toimi piisavalt hästi. Ma tänan lugupeetud riigikogulast, kes arvatavasti tahtmatult on tõstatanud selle üliolulise teema, mis kahjuks sageli – … Continue reading Rääkigem perevägivallast! Elevant toas on macho-kultuur

I study human rights because human rights allow everyone to be him- or herself

Natia Razmadze Human rights do not exist only for lawyers. Human rights are for all of us without distinction. And I think this is the biggest achievement of mankind.

Inimõigused ja ideoloogiad

Sven Anton Inimõigused ei ole ole seotud ühegi kindla ideoloogiaga, kuid peaksid olema iga legitiimse ideoloogia osa. Väärtustena moodustavad inimõigused koos traditsioonide ja kultuurilise enesemääratlusega ühiskonna alusmüüri. Tõigale, et inimõigusi ei saa alahinnata, annab kinnitust ka ajalugu, kus õiguste eest seistes on lausa valitsejaid kukutatud.  Kindlasti ei ole minu eesmärgiks mässu õhutada, vaid pigemini soovin … Continue reading Inimõigused ja ideoloogiad

If women’s social position is lower structurally, we still need feminism

I am somewhat sad that many people these days forget the true meaning of International Women's Day. In my opinion, getting flowers from guys and getting free drinks from the bar on women's day are not the things that we should make the celebration of women's day. I think women's day is the day to … Continue reading If women’s social position is lower structurally, we still need feminism
