Don’t get us wrong: We are all for progress. But to call this ‘progress’ is pretty disgusting. How is it ‘progress’ to trash Germany’s 1,000-year-old irreplaceable forest? Germany has a big population, a lot of ugly postwar urban landscapes, and yucky modern art. It has a few nice traditional places, too, but the big one for Germans is their beautiful ancient forests, the ones that eminent Germans like Goethe and Kant and Durer and Schubert likely walked through, marveled at, and drew inspiration from. Google ‘Reinhardswald’ at Google Images and see what this place looks like.
