Every person must escape from the rut of the everyday and things like new year’s eve, a pub visit or a grill party in the summer to make it affordable for everyone. But unfortunately, many know how to appreciate such things only appear when you run up to the full escalation. As always, it is the excessiveness, the power from the harmless pleasure of a load.

Weser Kurier (Bremen): If we for a Moment are honest to ourselves, then we are doing well, very well even. In other regions of the world Terror, war and violence rule daily. Alone respect and tolerance, freedom and peace, compassion and kindness are so infinitely important. There are the Strengths of our democracy.

How may come: The Sleeve is aufzukrempeln better than despair. Berlin has enjoyed a decade the fruits of the recovery. It now needs to flip the switch, think again about how prosperity and security. There is much to do, starting with the holey infrastructure to external and internal defense of the state. This sounds simple, but requires nothing less than a 180-degree turn away from the big koalitionären Wish-you-what-policy since 2005. Germany is strong, we can do it. But we don’t have much time to start.
