Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Discussion Culture
is, what I would sort this under.
I was really shocked, when I saw the notice that PapaScott will now do some translation work for Davids Medienkritik, a site, often leaving me foaming, shouting and smashing things around for their posts being so.. dumb, one-sided, manipulative and just plain "Driss" )look how you can get this translated!).
Scott claims, you can only change people's mind when you're talking to them. to what I agree.
I love talking to people with different ideas, different political beliefs and all that; that was one of the main reasons for me to have a weblog. If I want to people who think like I do, I initiate an "Ortsvereinssitzung".
Sorry, Scott, they're Morons! Not even so much David himself, but you'll find more than the average rate of Dumbnuts in his comments.
Talking to them and becoming a part of them is a difference, isn't it?
Talking to them and working for them is a difference, or?

Talking needs in my book, some kind of niveau, some kind of basic consent about how a discussion should be lead, but I can't find even that with people who argue like David's bandwagon.
They're so full of hatred against all, german politicians do, I have no idea, if it is guilt, self-hatred or just outside interests wo instrumentalize people like David and his friends.

I'm also missing any constructivity, which leads me that far to ask a common question from the 60ies - why don't they just leave? I mean, when I live in a country where I can find just so little positive in all day politics, why am I staying? I know for myself, I would leave immediately instead of staying and feeling as miserable with it all as it seems there.

Being so one-sided like this kind of sites is something I consider dangerous for one's beliefs.

But anyway Scott, maybe you're right and I'm wrong. I hope you find people to talk to, who are able and willing to listen to you.
