Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Helmut Kohl, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

The long-serving  German chancellor  deserved either praise or damnation for the reunification of Germany,  depending on one’s point of view.   Since my view is that the European Union was a stinking hot mess from its inception,  I’m disinclined to shed many tears for a man who proved himself as a politician,  but was a failure as a husband and father. For others,  the jury is still out on Kohl’s legacy,  and  largely dependent on the ultimate success or failure of the EU.
