Whew, don’t forget 8-tracks! The important bit is that, after a precipitous and intense decline, music sales are inching upward again.
According to Stephan Trüby, a professor of architecture at the University of Stuttgart, the Garrison church plan is an example of what he claims is now a disturbing pattern. “We can currently witness a cultural tendency of using seemingly harmless terms like identity’, ‘tradition’ and ‘beauty’ to establish an idea of ethnic purity protected by a fortress Europe,” he says. Elsewhere, writers wield terms such as heimat (home) and boden (soil/earth), which have both a long tradition in German thought and specific far-right meanings.
If you think about it, the doctor- or surgeon-patient encounter is like improv, requiring two characters, in role, to build a scene together.
