Democracy: Made In Germany

“Someone who only knows one country, knows no country.” Those were the wise words of the New Yorker, Seymour Martin Lipset, not in the context of international travel but in politics. Numerous Americans are still confident the world revolves around the USA and only around the USA. However, for those who find at least a bit of truth in Lipset’s statement, they will recognize democracy elsewhere in world, specifically in Germany.
