Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

well, what can you do?

I have a lot of people who would argue for me that I would make a good addition to German/European society but the law is the law.

I hope the teaching works out too (they're in the planning phases for next semester now at both Erfurt and Jena), that's really all I want to do with my life.  I am not interested in getting rich or in power, the teaching gives so much more satisfaction when your students actually grasp what you are teaching.

But dealing with the bureaucracy, I really did think it was simpler just to become a Legionaire and wear the Kepi Blanc.

How very true...! Though I do find a general weakness in basic culture, not allowing them to make the links between fields (as would say Edgar Morin)... Meaning that we must re-invent new ways or pursue in the hyper-selective way of keeping only those who have already a proper background... Thus defeating the purpose of teaching!
