Lynn, Germany today is a country without orientation, without a moral compass and without hope for the future. Why is this so? The generation that came home from the horrible crimes of WWII raised a new generation, which is of course not guilty for the wrongdoings of their parents. But the war generation, which never stood trial for its crimes, fled into materialism and had nothing else to teach to its children. A famous German song says that Germans are loving their cars more than their spouses. The consequence of this fact is that Germany has the lowest birth rate in the world and will soon be the biggest almshouse on the planet. A record number of Germans are emigrating. The frustration with the situation combined with the huge corruption seen daily in political life and the economy has led the subservient Germans to find the scapegoat: The US and the Jews (for many this is synonymous).
