Yesterday Germany had been celebrating the end of the division of the country and a bit the old fundamentals: Liberté – Égalité – Fraternité
- Law as rule for the country and
- Equality, as everybody is enjoying
- Freedom …, well, there is a bit of a linguistic problem: freedom from …, freedom of …, freedom to …? – at least it is the market freedom that everybody can return empty bottles and retrieve the money due.
(Some say it is part of the sharing economy – bottle sharing: one group going for feasts and drinking, the other profiting from returning the empty bottles to have a bit more cash than social benefits only.)
An interview with Christa Luft, unfortunately only in German, allows availing of a perspective that is too often entirely pushed aside.
