Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have seen Der Spiegel compared to Time Magazine in the USA. I consider it to be center right in orientation, perhaps more neo-lib than the center right as a whole. I know there is a range of views, even in the quoted article, but about half of the comments seemed to be of the sort I characterized as disquieting. Are these really only the views of nut cases?

In the USA we see comparably crazy views expressed regularly. Here I don't consider them only to represent a few nut jobs but at least 40% of the population nationwide and majorities in places such as Arkansas, where I live. Here I personally consider the number of people who have such views to be a looming threat. Do you have no such qualms for Germany?
