Petra Morsbach "Der Elefant im ZImmer"


Why does a church authority cover up a cardinal who has been known internally for decades to sexually abuse students and novices? Why does not even the opposition want to use a committee of enquiry to really clear up a minister's misstep? Why do the artists of an academy accept a ban on poetry readings? It is less the abuse of power in itself that is uncanny - people just have this inclination - than the printed, confused, contradictory, explosive relationship of the subordinates to it. Petra Morsbach explores it in three exciting reports.
