Chancellor Angela Merkel has learned a new word: digitization. While she can pronounce it and even spell it out, it is rather doubtful whether she actually understands the meaning. But it doesn’t matter, it is the new topic that she and the CDU are making their subject. The Germans should finally be made fit for digitization.
This came from the mouth of a chancellor, for whom the internet was still „new ground” 20 years after it was opened up to the general public. Is Merkel herself fit for digitization? Is Merkel actually fit for anything at all?
No, the press blatantly writes that the year 2018 is the beginning of Merkel’s end as Chancellor. Because since she lost control in the Jamaica coalition negotiations after the federal elections in 2017 and couldn’t prevent to fail, she now has to kiss the SPD’s ass during the new negotiations. The SPD is known as Martin Schulz and can now make demands at will. According to the media, Merkel could not afford another termination.
So, are we now finally going to introduce citizen insurance (termination of private health insurance) and parity (employers and employees sharing – as in the past – the health insurance contribution), and thus finally creating a piece of social justice?
No, of course not. Because the one thing that Merkel knows best is the diamond. As soon as she forms her hands into a diamond, even the most penetrating failure is immediately forgiven and forgotten. The Germans cheer her on again, and will mercilessly vote for her and everything stays the same…
