"Das Volk hat das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt. Wäre es da nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung löste das Volk auf und wählte ein anderes?" Berthold Brecht

"Ist dies schon Wahnsinn, so hat es doch Methode" - William Shakespeare

"Wenn man der Wahrheit nahe kommen will, muss man das Unmöglichste denken"

"Wir suchen überall das Unbedingte, und
finden immer nur Dinge" - Novalis

"Die rastlose Selbstzerstörung der Aufklärung zwingt das Denken dazu, sich auch die letzte Arglosigkeit gegenüber den Gewohnheiten und Richtungen des Zeitgeistes zu verbieten" - Theodor W. Adorno

"Das lebhafteste Vergnügen, das ein vernünftiger Mensch in der Welt haben kann, ist, neue Wahrheiten zu entdecken; das nächste nach diesem ist, alle Vorurteile loszuwerden." Friedrich der Große
König von Preußen
1712-1786

Heinrich von Kleist hat seiner Braut Wilhelmine von Zenge die Sache mit einem treffenden Vergleich klar gemacht:

„Wenn alle Menschen statt der Augen grüne Gläser hätten, so würden sie urteilen müssen, die Gegenstände, welche sie dadurch erblicken, sind grün – und nie würden sie entscheiden können, ob ihr Auge ihnen die Dinge zeigt, wie sie sind, oder ob es nicht etwas zu ihnen hinzutut, was nicht ihnen, sondern dem Auge gehört. So ist es mit dem Verstande. Wir können nicht entscheiden, ob das, was wir Wahrheit nennen, wahrhaft Wahrheit ist, oder ob es uns nur so scheint. Ist das letzte, so ist die Wahrheit, die wir hier sammeln, nach dem Tode nicht mehr – und alles Bestreben, ein Eigentum sich zu erwerben, das uns auch in das Grab folgt, ist vergeblich.“---

"If you want to get close to the truth, you have to think the worst possible"---

"If this is crazy, then it has method" - William Shakespeare--- "We seek the unconditioned everywhere, and always find things" - Novalis

"The restless self-destruction of the Enlightenment compels thinking to forbid even the last innocence against the habits and tendencies of the Zeitgeist" - Theodor W. Adorno

The most vivid pleasure that a rational man in the world can have is to discover new truths; the next one after that is to get rid of all prejudices.
Frederick the Great
King of Prussia
1712-1786

"The people have lost the trust of the government. Wouldn't it be easier if the government dissolved the people and chose another one?" - Berthold Brecht

Heinrich von Kleist made it clear to his bride Wilhelmine von Zenge with an apt comparison:

“If everyone had green glasses instead of eyes, they would have to judge that the objects they see through them are green - and they would never be able to decide whether their eyes show them the way they are or whether they are not adding something to them that does not belong to them but to the eye. So it is with the mind. We cannot decide whether what we call Truth is Truth or whether it only seems so to us. If the last is, the truth that we collect here is no longer after death - and all efforts to acquire property that also follows us into the grave are in vain. "

John Leake: Cold A Long Time: An Alpine Mystery


COLD A LONG TIME by John Leake
In August of 1989, twenty-three-year-old Duncan MacPherson—a pro hockey player from Canada—vanished without a trace in Central Europe. To his parents, Lynda and Bob, nothing about his disappearance made sense. With no help from the police, they drove all over the Alps looking him, and then finally found his car parked near the gondola station of the Stubai Glacier, a popular ski resort in Austria. Thus began their twenty-two year struggle to find out why Duncan had disappeared—a true story as strange and full of unexpected twists as a season of The Twilight Zone.

In 2009 they asked author John Leake to help them in their ongoing search for answers. Now, after a two-year investigation, Leake has finally discovered what happened to Duncan MacPherson, and why his death was covered up by the Stubai Glacier and high ranking officials in Innsbruck, Austria.

Cold a Long Time: An Alpine Mystery recounts the tragic odyssey of the MacPherson family. It is a story about enduring love, perseverance, and the irrepressible desire to know the truth, literally at all cost. It is also the story of an incredibly elaborate and twisted deception.
Leake’s findings are the subject of the television documentary A Cold Case, produced by the fifth estate—Canada’s premier investigative journalism program, which will air on November 25, 2011. http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/
