Did write nothing of course, spent precious time idling. I visited a historian today and had a nice two-hour conversation about this & that, including his very impressive collection of Römer-glasses, but not about the topic me / he / we should write about.
In other news, this Sunday will be elections held in the federate state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, commonly known as Meck-Pomm. This is an area in the North-East of Germany, large & empty. There is basically nothing except fresh clean air, some ruins of pre-1989 buildings and post-1989 scams, and oh-so-idyllic prospects. Remember please, “idyll” equals “lack of knowledge”.
Some areas are deeply brown, in the political sense. The interesting question with this election is not if the AfD is in the parliament, but whether it is more than 20 % or not, and / or if this “party” reaches more points than the national conservative party, the CDU. The AfD successfully ousts the NPD – the traditionally far-out-right-wing-party, it’s a kind of NPD-light, acceptable for the more bourgeoise electorate. Those who do not shave their heads and arson the refugee houses themselves, but have a full understanding for those young national hot-heads – God yes, just childish nonsense, neh ?
If you look close and listen to those people you will hear the old fascist talk, if a little bit more civilised, if this is ever possible.
It’s all very dark up there. The chancellor has her election district up North, and it was seemingly a not very amusing visit last week. Anyway, this Sunday evening we’ll know who is in charge in this desert – and how damn dumb the German people can become, torture never stops.
When one has finished the first ten thousand, one should finally have grown up. Slowly closing in to the second ten thousand, one is still grown up & all, but … maybe a bit papery on the edges … perhaps it’s not a too bad thing when Obstinacy slowly starts to take over. Slowly. Kind of Revelation perhaps.
Mr Booker T (JONES) (Ger., Eng.) has the right advice for any situation : Behave Yourself.
Exactly. Just Do it.
