You are naive, these memorials for the Berlin born probably hilarious. This city is now skeptical, self-deprecating, probably feels almost embarrassing in the allotment of the Allied flags. Over there, so they tell me, it was different not A lot. I have no sentimental memories at the Potsdamer Platz, but you Tell me earlier here beat the heart of Berlin. In the torn heart, it has set up: sympathetic, melancholy on the West side, with souvenir shops and platforms over the old subway entrance, unappealing and neurotic in the East.

Carl Amery’s 100th Birthday (* April 9, 1922)

Writer Carl Amery shaped the political discourse of the Federal Republic of Germany like no other. He became an important pioneer of the environmental and post-growth movements with his socially critical writings.

Born in Munich on April 9, 1922, as Christian Anton Mayer, the literary theorist began writing in 1950 under the anagram Carl Amery. Four years later he published his debut novel, Der Wettbewerb (The Competition), and was soon invited to join the Gruppe 47. In 1958, he published Die große deutsche Tour (The Big German Tour), a biting satire on the Adenauer era that gained quite a growing readership. In the mid-1970s, Amery discovered science fiction and created dystopian future scenarios and alternative histories in books such as Das Königsprojekt (The King’s Project), Der Untergang der Stadt Passau (The Downfall of the City of Passau), An den Feuern der Leyermar (By the Fires of the Leyermar) and Das Geheimnis der Krypta (The Secret of the Crypt). His literary main work is the novel Die Wallfahrer (The Pilgrims), published in 1986, which deals with the exploitation of religion.

He had been addressing the fatal effects of Christianity, the dogma of economic growth and the exploitation of nature in journalistic texts since the 1960s.

With ever-increasing urgency, he exhorted in his writings that saving the planet requires not only a radical rethinking, but also appropriate action: for example in Das Ende der Vorsehung (The End of Providence), Natur als Politik (Nature as Politics), Die Botschaft des Jahrtausends (The Message of the Millennium), and  Global Exit. Die Kirchen und der totale Markt (Global Exit. The Churches and the Total Market). Consequently, he co-founded the Green Party in 1980 and established the E. F. Schumacher Society for Political Ecology.

In addition to writing he also held some positions: director of the Munich Municipal Libraries, chairman of the Association of German Writers, and president of the German PEN Centre.

Carl Amery died on May 24, 2005.
