German responsibility by Arminius1871 German responsibility by Arminius1871
You shall believe in Germany´s future,
and the new rise of your people.
Don´t allow that they rob this spirit,
despite everything what happened in the past.
And thou shalt act as if,
of you and your actions alone
the fate of the german future
lies in your responsibility.

by Albert Matthai

And that is why Germany along with Northern Europe still carries on whilst the rest of Europe falls.

That's gonna be heard, have to oust the Euroskeptics first by reforming the EU a bit more. We need to Union to survive the 21st century, no more restrictions on transactions among the members, a corruption score for new members to ensure every new member is honest and wont spend aid on corrupt projects and a less harsh Austerity program that excludes infrastructure. We have to get all members behind the same goals that where drawn up after World War, we have to come to compromises and more importantly Southern Europe could learn a lot from Germany, the UK and the Nordic countries.

I think the big mistake of the EU was, that they wanted to grow too fast. They said the other countries
will rise from alone, too. But that was wrong, especially the eastern members did not rise a lot.
I would shorten back the EU to the best economies, which would also include Italy of course!
Italy has financial problems, but, you have an excellent economy with many important industries and cars and such!
Italy is and was always great and important.
Also Poland is rising :)

Change the name of the country and it would be a great motto for civics class, the last politician who said anything with a similar spirit in Ireland was the great poet W.B Yeats who served as a Senator after independence.  Shortly afterwards he was eased out of office by the govt.. Great German unification map by the way

Hey thanks a lot, yes I think every nation should have such a spirit,
to do the best for the community and the country, of course at the same time
also respect other nations :)

We have a rather good image of Ireland here in Germany btw.,
but we think you should at last get back North-Ireland^^
Is there any chance u can get it? The IRA was not successful yet.

The IRA are an anti constitutional group and membership is illegal resulting in a prison sentence.  During our Civil War in the 20's we had a choice of a legal govt. elected freely by the people under the rule of law or the IRA who saw themselves as the rightful govt..  The main reason they lost was that they didn't have the support of the people. 

When I did criminal law during the last term of the law degree we covered a case involving one of these IRA men who was arrested for bank robbery in the 70's. This man shot a member of the Gardaí Siochana (Police) dead in cold blood.  This guy refused to acknowledge our law, he also claimed that the elected govt. is illegitimate etc.. Recently they have become Irelands equivalent to the Mafia, before Christmas one of their leaders was assassinated in Dublin by a gang involved in drug dealing and protection rackets, they're considered only criminals who wave the national flag around. 

As for the north we have a treaty in place that states that there will be unification only when the people freely wish for it.  It is a mature and democratic attitude to have and the IRA's actions only blighted innocent lives.  

In my home town we have a little park at the back of the Law Court where they shot six IRA men by firing squad for treason, after independence these men crossed the border into Northern Ireland and planted bombs which killed innocent farmers.  One of their colleagues wasn't arrested the amadan blew himself up by accident, he sat on the plunger for the explosives.

We had to cover a court case involving one of their members two terms back during Criminal Law, McGueret was the guys name, he was an IRA fanatic and so was his father who died in jail for murder.  This fellow sought a Habeus Corpus claiming that the state did not have authority to arrest him or jail him, in effect that our laws did not apply to him since he refused to acknowledge the existence of our state etc.

There is a connection between Germany and Ireland in our laws since our constitution copied a lot of ideas from your liberal Weimar constitution and from the current German one, we also copied all our laws regards Habeus Corpus and Civil liberties from you.

Oh yes thanks everything is ok, we have to vote on sunday if we want one more time Merkel, or the socialdemcratic Steinbrück,
but I think Merkel did a good job after all. Many complain all the time about politicians, but often they do as good as they can,
a perfect state for every minority attitude isn´t possible.
And after all, we had not too much problems in the crisis since 2009, most of us have jobs, growing exports, Merkel did it well.
I don´t know how the other countries see her...the Greek hate her, because they blame the mistakes of their own government on Germany XD
Because we give them money and for that want that they save money and pay it back, and for that they hate us and burn german flags lol.

Yes I remember that. But remember when that one Greek dAer came and spoken to your post about it? They were really nice and apologetic about what their countrymen were doing and reminding us that it was a minority of greece doing such obscene things in regards to Germany.

Personally I like your nation's 'Mutti,' she's done extremely well and Germany has managed to remain stable as a result. I hope she gets reelected, I really do.
