Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Heh, I just want to blow everything up and go back to the Deutsche Mark.  There's a "Fight Club" instinct there where all the corporate headquater's buildings get blown up in the end.  I will be Ikea-boy no more.

Of course that is purely a selfish wish as it would help me personally at the expense iof the population as a whole.  It's also a wish shared by most of my German friends for equally selfish reasons.  Then again, they also long for the good ole' days of the DDR.

So maybe all of our selfish opinions are really not credible after all.

Nevertheless, it is how a lot of us feel and that can translate easily into politics, for better or for worse.
