Thought for the day: Germany

According to Theodore Dalrymple the Germans are looking for an identity that is not German. Europeanism is obviously silly but why not go back to the mini-states of the past? With a few abberrations - like the Thirty Years War - they did just fine and it is their ethos that can be considered the basis of the German economic miracle of the late 19th Century (that’s before the anti-economists got going).
