For at least five years I have worked on my main work.

Now it is available in German and English.

What is the reason why the so-called great people in history turned into persecutors, if they had the power to do so, and why were they often persecuted, if they fought against spiritual restriction and sought new ways of thinking as freethinkers and cultural workers? After all, why do people come to persecute others? This central, ever and ever recurring problem in world history, I want to highlight in this book and help so to advance the enlightenment one-step further.

Its about an ancient and eternal topic, a topic which I consider the most important in world history, a topic that pervades the whole history and has shaped it decisively.
