...Und wenn Bewerber feststellen, dass sie sich für all die Euphemismen und Überzuckerungen, die ihren Bildungsweg begleitet haben, außerhalb des Bildungssystems nichts kaufen können, weil innerhalb schon lange niemand mehr an diese Währung glaubte. Es treten die üblichen Ersatzwährungen ins Mittel: Vitamin B, Praktika als Teststrecke, Assessment-Center, Zertifikate aus stärker selektiven Einrichtungen.

Mittelfristig wird diese Aushöhlung der Logik von Abschlussprüfungen zu einem System zwingen, das mit Eingangsprüfungen operiert. Wer die besten Mittel hat, um sich auf solche Eingangsprüfungen vorzubereiten, ist leicht ersichtlich. Das vermeintlich wohlmeinende Absehen von Strenge läuft auf ein Ungleichheit verstärkendes System zu. Wer es besichtigen will, kann das in den Vereinigten Staaten tun...

Die Schüler werden schlechter, die Noten aber besser. Doch letztlich läuft das vermeintlich wohlmeinende Absehen von Strenge bei der Benotung auf ein Ungleichheit verstärkendes System zu.

Über Jahre haben unsere Großökonomen die Kritik aus dem Ausland am deutschen Exportüberschuss verspottet. Jetzt droht Amerikas neuer Präsident, das Problem zu erledigen - ein deutsches Drama.

A bit of history
 
Amazing story, images and quotes - Dorothea Lange and her photos of FDR’s Japanese Concentration Camps https://anchoreditions.com/blog/dorothea-lange-censored-photographs

“The Japanese race is an enemy race and while many second and third generation Japanese born on American soil, possessed of American citizenship, have be come ‘Americanized,’ the racial strains are undiluted.

…It, therefore, follows that along the vital Pacific Coast over 112,000 potential enemies, of Japanese extraction, are at large today. There are indications that these are organized and ready for concerted action at a favorable opportunity.

The very fact that no sabotage has taken place to date is a disturbing and confirming indication that such action will be taken.”

— General John L. DeWitt, head of the U.S. Army’s Western Defense Command

“A viper is nonetheless a viper wherever the egg is hatched—so a Japanese-American, born of Japanese parents—grows up to be a Japanese, not an American.”

— Los Angeles Times, February 2, 1942
The military seized her photographs, quietly depositing them in the National Archives, where they remained mostly unseen and unpublished until 2006 Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother photograph from 1936 Dorothea Lange—well-known for her FSA photographs like Migrant Mother—was hired by the U.S. government to make a photographic record of the “evacuation” and “relocation” of Japanese-Americans in 1942. She was eager to take the commis...

Müßiggänger gesellschaftlich zu ächten hat eine lange Tradition. Der Mensch soll Abscheu vor staatlicher Hilfe entwickeln. Heute mehr denn je.

...The German security forces had Amri in their sights, but no evidence. A civilised nation does not charge or jail anyone for a thing they MIGHT do. If we do it to terrorists, then we will do it to anyone.

The simple and hard truth is that if a few thousand people want to kill you, one of them will probably manage it. They only have to get it right once.

Germany did not 'let Amri in', and nor did Italy. He was denied asylum in two nations which picked him up on their radar in exactly the way they should have done.

It was Tunisia who allowed a wanted criminal to roam free, and to leave its borders. It was Tunisia who refused to accept him back. It was Tunisia that took four months to issue a passport.

And it's Tunisia that has a massive problem with terrorism, and an estimated 7,000 of its citizens who are members of Islamic State....
 
Nicely said.

We are at war - with a few thousand people out there who want to kill us, and a few thousand in here who want to frighten us. Who bend the truth to suit their nightmares, to seize power, to get paid for spouting stupidity, and who simply don't care when they've got it wrong.
No, Anis Amri was NOT a refugee and this is NOT Angela Merkel's fault, writes Fleet Street Fox

Nicely put!
Kudos to the European police forces who followed the rules strictly, as our cultures and laws dictate.
