Human beings should only use technology which if the worst case happens, it leads to an acceptable damage. Definitely nuclear energy is not in that category. I want an industrial world where people are allowed to make errors. Because human creativity has to do with being allowed to make errors. We want an error-friendly environment.

— Hans-Peter Durr

The most wonderful Hans-Peter Durr quotes that are glad to read

If you have an enemy, you first have to listen - whether he really is an enemy or just speaks in a different language


Peace in its real sense can never be achieved by military measures or technical fixes... It is high time for us to focus our attention on the real problems which are threatening all of us - in fact, life on this planet.
