…the Berlin Wall fell, and the bureaucrats in power became the capitalists in power. Stalinism was replaced by capitalism, political oppression became economic depression. An evil system took the place of a perverted one, like a fallen angel handing the keys to Satan. And we’re supposed to pretend that this was a victory for freedom, purchased by the power of protest and the unquenchable desire for more products in the supermarket (which you can’t afford).
The elite remains the elite, and the poor get poorer. Idiocy prevails.
Now there’s something for the German media to celebrate. They should know all about idiocy.
