Gabriele Krone-Schmalz and Wolfgang Niess in conversation about Germany – an estranged country?
Germany is in combat mode. Instead of arguing in a decent way, those who have a different opinion are denigrated - as \"traitors to the people\" or as \"Nazis\", \"racists\" or simply as \"old white men\". Problems are increasingly discussed in a state of hysterical hyperventilation. In her new book, Gabriele Krone-Schmalz takes a worried look at our polarized, divided country and, in conversation with Wolfgang Niess, pleads for more respect for those who think differently, for a new culture of public debate and compromise for the benefit of our democracy.
