I don’t know her ghostwriters and even if they exist the Chancellor of Germany mentioned Hermann Hesse’s remarks about the magic at the beginning, the reality of permanent change and values which are true and not fake. Well done! Standing ovations in a country which rediscovered Hermann Hesse in the flower power, let your hair down years fifty years ago, when AM grew up behind the wall in Eastern Berlin. She rules the country since she defeated her precedessor Gerd Schröder autumn 2005 and promised to leave office after elections autumn 2021. May she enjoy the magic of another beginning!
