I am upset that German speaking countries aren’t contributing massive amounts of culture and pop-culture to the world, unlike the United States. It makes me jealous.
I suppose a lot of people in various cultures are in that boat though.
I feel that it is one of my strangely conservative traits. I also don’t want to see our culture drowned and replaced. Though I have heralded mono-culture as an agent of peace and stability, I don’t think all distinctness should be lost if possible. Now that computer translation is making huge advances, we might not even need a global language, something I have supported in the past.
I like peace better though, so it takes priority. I just want have my cake and eat it!
And then there is our dismal birthrate…
Get off my lawn!
