Victory Over the Liberals

Victory Over the Liberals

The European Central Bank will now place an unlimited amount of money at the disposal of struggling member states. However, this artificial money supply will not deliver the solution to economic problems it promises. As an older colleague used to say, in life, being right is little more than a consolation prize. At a conference […]

The ‘System Haider’ Implodes

The ‘System Haider’ Implodes

The ‘System Haider’ Implodes by Charles Ritterband Heads are rolling in Carinthia. The local head of the Austrian People’s Party, Josef Martinz, as well as the head of the Carinthian governing party FPK (Freiheitliche in Kärnten), Uwe Scheuch, were forced to resign in quick succession as a consequence of recently unveiled party donation scandals worth […]

A Letter to Our German Friends

A Letter to Our German Friends

by Christian Ultsch Dear Germans, Maybe the news hasn’t gotten all the way up to Usedom, but suddenly we like you. Just imagine: Half of us wouldn’t even mind if you won the European Cup. And most of us think that the moussaka you made in the quarterfinals out of that Greek concrete wall Özil, […]

The ‘Truth’ About the Jews

The ‘Truth’ About the Jews

Anti-Semitism warning! Günter Grass is no isolated case. The world always reacts with outrage when Israel has the audacity to step out of its historically assigned role of victim. And once again the reversal of the classic Perpetrator-Victim relationship, this time from Grass. In his poem “What Must be Said”, the Nobel Prize laureate alleges that […]

Günter Grass: What Must Be Said

                                            Why have I been silent, been silent too long, about what obviously is and has been practised in a simulated game, at whose end, we will as survivors, in any case, only be […]

The Start-Up City

The Start-Up City

Cities matter, as they always have, but now more of the world is starting to take notice of their problems and possibilities. At their worst, cities are slums, places where the social constraints of the village are loosened, people can misbehave in anonymity, and poor and unemployed people live in squalor. At their best, they […]

Yulia Tymoshenko: Letter from Prison

It has been said that there are no atheists in a foxhole. Here, after my show trial and four and a half months in a cell, I have discovered that there are no atheists in prison, either. When, despite unbearable pain, you are interrogated – including in your cell – for dozens of hours without […]

Politics and Theatre

I recently read an article entitled “Politics as Theatre,” a critique of all that I have tried to do in politics. It argued that in politics, there is no place for a realm as superfluous as theatre. To be sure, in the early months of my presidency, some of my ideas demonstrated more theatrical flair […]

Is Day X Coming?

At the moment, Germany is the strangest country in the world, or at least in Europe. Due to the debt crisis, the entire continent is focusing on Germany, yet the country itself isn’t in a crisis. Nonetheless, the Germans too are noticing that these days, everything is accelerating and intensifying; there is a nervous buzz […]
