Add comment on:10 Theses about the Crisis: Ingo Schulze
German novelist Ingo Schulze's 2012 "Our Beautiful New Clothes" explains how we have accepted the form and not the substance of democracy. People were convinced of the "emperor's new clothes" until a child cried "but he has nothing on." Maybe Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale can help us understand our predicament. It is the madness that has become self-evident: for years, the public sphere has been plundered and democracy ruined. The German writer Ingo Schulze has had enough.
