Black suits comin'
Ein netter Aspekt über die "Wiedervereinigung", den man wissen sollte: Abschlüsse, die nicht anerkannt werden, Geburtsurkunden, die nicht anerkannt werden - nur, weil dort ein Stempel mit Hammer, Zirkel und Ährenkranz drauf ist. Als hätten es sich die Leute aussuchen können, in welchem von beiden Staaten sie geboren werden.
Da weiß man schon gleich, dass man nur annektiert wurde.


A nice aspect about the German reunification that everyone should know: Graduations and degrees that don't get acknowledged, birth certificates that don't get acknowledged - only because there's a stamp depicturing hammer, dividers and garland of corn* on it. (*Note: It seems like there's no proper translation for "Hammer, Zirkel und Ährenkranz", so I took it word by word. As such it means the symbol in the flag of the GDR that distinguished the black, yellow and red German flag of that German state from the flag of West Germany, which can be found in the same colors, but blank in that middle space or with the black federal eagle instead.)
As if the people could have chosen which one of both states they were born in.
Such aspects let you know right away that haven't been reunified, but you have been annexed.

You know I agree it doesn't make you a capitalist if you are rich. The capitalist is the one who pockets the surplus value, meaning exploiting people by buying their labour and underpaying. Here I totally agree with you.

No you should be proud of yourself. You can make a difference.

Ok, thanks I will add you to a friends list because this way I will be notified when you have new posts. And sure I would appreciate if you added mine.
