Life and all that:
Calendar Mottos and Other Random Pearls of Wisdom
A kind of literary fruit salad

Only a temporary life offers the possibility to value anything at all.

The state of the nation:
Jamboree in the House of Europe
25 Years after the Maastricht Treaty created the EU, the political experiment is visibly failing

Like a wandering dune, the growing European construct continues to crunch its way across the continent.

‘Grand Prize for SMEs’:
Celebrating Entrepreneurial Success
An all too rare event in Germany

The contrast between the consistently observable lack of vanity of the participants on the one hand and the excellence of their work on the other could hardly have been greater.

Communication in the Internet era:
The Challenge of Information Overreach
When spreading opinions tips the emotional balance of the masses

We all must learn that our opinions may be flawed.

Statecraft and creativity:
Limited Spaces Call for Limitless Thoughts

The smaller a state and its authority are, the more insignificant and ineffectual are the points where uncontrollable and thus ungovernable disruptive forces can act.

Violence in France and Migration into Europe:
Peace Doves Grilled on the Barricades
The Fist Replaces the Referral Notification

If Europe, her borders, her values and her legal system do not physically resist this challenge, it will also mentally implode.
