From Werner Herzog in Guide for the Perplexed: "I'm fascinated by the notion of civilization as a thin layer of ice resting upon a deep ocean of darkness and chaos."

What we are seeing with the rise of AfD and with Aiwanger being given showered with applause instead of being censured is how close we are to the ice melting.


"It's a sign of how far the CSU has now fallen that its fate is now tied up with the political survival of a third rate huckster whose career is built on populist stunts that draw voters away from the CSU.

Franz Josef Strauss would have double-crossed an amateur grifter like Aiwanger without batting an eyelid"
