    "Can any German claim once again that true Germanness is that spirituality which found its expression in Goethe and Schiller, that the German spirit that found its expression in Nazism is not spiritual but rather something else?" Well, personally I think that Goethe's mythical style fits nazism quite well: anti-rational topics on german geography like witches in the Harz; a king in the mythical realm of Thule... Another german style for example is: after a five days' week sit down on a tepid friday evening in June with friends by an allotment garden pub, have a drink, play Skat and talk about this and that. There's too little intercultural education. If English is taught in every school of our unjust school system, then because english is needed at work. People with mainly production-applied education have little understanding of other people's culture, feel unsettled and threatened by those who are different and then withdraw and defend themselves against imaginary enemies
