08:41, Europe at a tipping point
This is a vote against the system, systems that is. They shall be dismantled. It is a vote against Washington and the establishment, against the media and even a conservative vote against the republicans as they have been, but moreover this vote is against Mexico and the Nafta, against TTIP, against UN and NATO, against Europe.
It is no declaration of war, but it is a historical decision to change role and position of the USA in the world. What is Trump going to do? We don't know, and that's a mess. But as far as we read him during the election process, he is no friend of ours, Europe that is.
The show ... will go on.
This is a defining moment for Europe and for Germany. It seems to me, that no other country is able to head the (re-)uniting process of Europes foreign policies. Having said that, there seems to be no alternative to #AngelaMerkel and the very question now is, what coalition she's might going to lead.
Reflecting Germanys political personal I see no other voice and character that might influence the german-european agenda in the right direction than #ChristianLindner. Though speaking out confident, clearly and convincing, he took a modesty and humble role (which was the right way to handle the problems of his party). To have a chance to come back to Berlin he needs to change his attitude.
