Merkel’s final days:
Will Everything be All Right Again in the End?
Always the same old musings about self-sacrificing politicians

A change at the top does not improve politics. But then, what does?

Traveling through the American West:
It Stinks in LA and San Francisco
However, in the end the US might be less threatened by decline than old Europe

Culturally, the US are more divided than Europe. And less.

Spiritual-cultural background of the new east-west conflict:
Millions of Russians Go On a Pilgrimage to St. Nicholas
And what this – possibly – has to do with the future of property and freedom

A lot, as it turns out.

The Political Philosophy of Zombies:
Questions of Life and Death
‘The Walking Dead’ as science fiction, neo-western and road movie

How, after a total collapse of civilization, do people act and reorganize societies under the worst conditions? The answer depends on your political outlook.

Traveling Through the American South:
The Confederacy Lives
Possibly, someday, as an (anti-)political counter project again

Libertarian observations at the tail end of the Merkel era.
