German discipline crumbles

The major German media have announced that they are abandoning a language-reform program that the government has been pushing the past 6 years. They’re returning to the old way of writing (not to Fraktur, the old black-letter script they used before the war, but to immensely long words, lots of commas, and the double Ss that look like Bs). It’s good to see that even in Germany, a land where “Zivilcourage” refers to the activities of pro-regime PC vigilantes, Gleichschaltung (the practice of forcing everybody and everything to get with the program) can sometimes fail, at least in minor things of no direct political relevance.

  1. Our heart’s core knows there will come a turning of the tide.
    This was a triumph in which nothingness was vanquished by somethingness, entropy defeated by meaning. Thank God we finally get to glimpse a few things going in the right direction. All I can say is, if reading this article made your heart swell with joy, you’re my kind of person. May this victory be duplicated a billion times as we leave the left behind us to stew in its own eternal nothingness. Let’s not pollute ourselves any more by touching it, or coming into contact with it. We march toward something better and yes, with the help of Providence and all the earthly strength we can muster, we will get to our destination.

(Galater 5, 1). Equivalent three delegates call this place: Bundestag vice-president Susanne Kastner, the last GDR minister of foreign affairs, civil rights activist and minister Markus Meckel (both SPD) as well as the Bioethik Expertin Maria Boehmer (CDU). Federal Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder (SPD), which with its Mrs. Doris Schroeder koepf cutting back recently a Russian waisenkind adopted, quotes the Matthews gospel: “and who accepts such a child in my name, takes up me?

Merkel commentated, the love opens human beings for each other and lifts it beyond everyday concerns and problems. “you is the volume, which holds everything together.
