Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I said, I don't agree with Schaeuble, but those people who use this Stasi 2.0 often don't talk about it in a "Wehret den Anfaengen" way, but talk really of it like if were were already in the medium of it.
I can't read minds, but I guess Schaeuble has as well some polit-tactical reasons. He wants to be stronger on security whatever Schily has done before.
The media has IMO a strong left-wing bias, when it comes to economy. There is not much the CDU can win. But no main stream media can seriously be strongly on the left-wing regarding security, because that would mean one would have to stop hyping the islamistic threat and then immediately the question would arise, if we don't have to change our relationship with the US drastically - who wants to send troops to Afghanistan to fight people who have done us no harm for protecting those who have just recently kidnapped and tortured two of our citizens without ever charging them.
