Madder and better

When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.

No Place to Hide

Immer, wenn ich Angela Merkel sehe, kommt mir neuerdings ein Zitat von Glenn  Greenwald in den Sinn, das zwar auf viele Politiker zutrifft, aber meiner Meinung nach besonders auf „Mutti“ passt.

The kind of people who ascend to that level of political power are people who have given up that kind of passion and vibrancy in their soul that would make them do that a long time ago. […]
They make so many compromises along the way to ascend that ladder of political power that I think their soul, to the extent that it existed, had been suffocated. (Glenn Greenwald)
