»Greed! Whoever criticises capitalism without really understanding the economic system of the so-called ‘free’ market falls for this point: Everything evil comes from people being ‘like this’! They are excessive in their demands and never get enough. ‘The more he has, the more he wants,’ is how the saying goes. The state of the world can only improve if ‘the human being’ could change. But: How can ‘the human being’ change?« E. DREWERMANN
Eugen Drewermann interprets the following Grimm’s’ Children’s and Household Tales (better known as Grimm’s’ Fairy Tales): »The Fisherman and His Wife«, »The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage«, »The Straw, the Coal, and the Bean« and »The Little Folk’s Presents«. The four fairy tales collected in this volume all describe people or beings who could actually be quite content with themselves and their living conditions, but they are not. Eugen Drewermann explores the causes for this.
