Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fortunately the judiciary gets it: the Constitutional Court has a strong record of curtailing draconian legislation or throwing it out altogether.

Schäuble himself belongs to that school of politicians that tries to use every excuse to extend the powers of the state to infringe on individual freedoms.

And memory is a funny thing... A general awareness of who the Nazis were and what they actually did didn't begin to become pervasive in the public mind until the mid-60s, when the next generation came of age. You can read this fact as one of the subtexts of much public unrest in Germany in the 60s and 70s.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
