Many people don't remember a Germany that wasn't run by Angela Merkel. Germans go to the polls again in late 2021, and Angela Merkel has already announced she won't run again. With no clear successor, a power vacuum is brewing in Berlin. The coming months will determine Merkel's legacy, and the future of Germany and Europe. So how did she get to where she is? How did she manage to stay in power for so long?

  • Der deutsche Bauer verelendet, der Mittelstand ruiniert, die sozialen Hoffnungen vieler Millionen Menschen vernichtet, ein Drittel aller im Erwerbsleben stehenden deutschen Männer und Frauen ohne Arbeit und damit ohne Verdienst, das Reich, die Kommunen und die Länder überschuldet, sämtliche Finanzen in Unordnung und alle Kassen leer. Was hätten sie überhaupt noch mehr zerstören können. Das schlimmste aber ist die Vernichtung des Vertrauens in unserem Volk, die Beseitigung aller Hoffnungen und aller Zuversicht. In 13 Jahren ist es ihnen nicht gelungen, die in unserem Volk schlummernden Kräfte irgendwie zu mobilisieren. Im Gegenteil. In ihrer Angst vor dem Erwachen der Nation, haben sie die Menschen gegeneinander ausgespielt, die Stadt gegen das Land, den Angestellten gegen den Beamten, den Handarbeiter gegen den Arbeiter der Stirne, den Bayern gegen den Preußen, den Katholiken gegen den Protestanten uns so fort und umgekehrt. Der Aktivismus unserer Rasse wurde nur im Inneren verbraucht, nach außen aber blieben Phantasien übrig, phantastische Hoffnungen auf Kulturgewissen, Völkerrecht, Weltgewissen, Botschafterkonferenzen, Völkerbund, Zweite Internationale, Dritte Internationale, proletarische Solidarität und so weiter, und die Welt hat uns dementsprechend behandelt. So ist Deutschland langsam verfallen und nur ein Wahnsinniger kann hoffen, daß die Kräfte, die erst den Verfall herbeiführten, nunmehr die Wiederauferstehung bringen könnten. Wenn die bisherigen Parteien Deutschland ernstlich retten möchten, warum haben sie es dann nicht schon bisher getan. Haben sie aber Deutschland retten wollen, weshalb ist es unterblieben? Haben die Männer dieser Parteien es ehrlich beabsichtigt, dann müßten ihre Programme schlecht gewesen sein. Waren aber ihre Programme richtig, dann können sie selbst es nicht aufrichtig gewollt haben oder sie waren zu unwissend oder zu schwach.

  • I think she was just a puppet of rich german companies. No wonder Germany became a financial superpower. I wonder how often ceo and owner of big german companies used to have meeting and lunch at her office. I had worked as security at Istana, Singapore where they used to have office for president, minister mentor, senior minister and prime minister. Business owner and leader frequently used to visit these offices, I know because we were given informations with list of visitors for the day. Most politicians care about economy of a country rather than well being of citizens. I have seen meeting between ministers and businessmen more than we can imagine as normal puplic. I think policies politicians bring forward are in best interest of industry and business owners. Just look at Brexit, they care so much about their fishing industry. Yes they have other industries interest as well, just giving an example. Most government policies protect big businesses and add more burden to citizens. They add cost to plastic bags which add burden to citizens but they do nothing to plastic manufacturers. They limits inflow of traffics by substituting existing vehicle lane with bicycle paths to lower our emissions but they don’t punish or tax as much as they should to industries who are polluting our environment. We citizens make sacrifices and businesses and industries keep getting richer and richer. We are the sacrificial goats 🐐 for politicians and rich people. We citizens fights, defend different political parties and vote with an illusion that these power hungry politicians are going to change our life for better. Just look into your life what and how Bush, Obama, Trump administration affected your livelihood? It makes me laugh how naive citizens defend, fight and some even die for their preferred politicians and their ideology. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • This graph was actually absolutely misleading. Her party used to be "the go-to middle" for the regular unbiased german citizen. But she pressed the CDU to the left. Thats why there is a big vaccuum of political power and representation in this country. We pretty much got now 6 mayor parties representing the left and only one trying to represent the whole spectrum of the right. I agree, once she is gone, the backlash of that politic will hurt germany. But she and her close party-members are the fault. She disbanded the standards of her party to gain votes from the semi-left voters. That worked out pretty well for her. Whilst the CDU was at an all time high, their former archrival SPD (which initially represented those semi-left voters, faded to oblivion. Once she is gone the mightiest of our parties will fall apart between the ones who appreciated her way and the ones who want their party to represent what it initially did. Most likely the valuable votes from our former (now semi-left) middle will fall in the hand of the leftists and green- extremists. Our future does'nt look bright

  • Move back to the centre right. Moving to the centre did help for a time but all it did was take share from the left which was already fragmented and the biggest left party, SPD was in decline. This is important because if the CDU & SPD seats keep declining, they may not have enough seats to form a government. A more right CDU is better than the AfD.

    theuglykwantheuglykwanਮਹੀਨੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
    • I agree. Many complained the CDU went too far left from where it was. The AfD as it is now seems too far right given what people are running it in notable positions. A more center/right leaning CDU should appease them and they would fill their role as conservative oriented party again. I think it would also bring some sort of stability to many parts of society.
