The resignation of a sympathy carrier of German policy with Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg loses one of its most sympathetic German policy. Zu Guttenberg has succeeded, that finally time again young people in politics have interested? But this resignation has to do only with the doctoral thesis? Zu Guttenberg had from the outset as well as all the people on his side, he was seen as a new Chancellor. But unfortunately also envious with it brings faster success. Let’s take the example of the Gorch Fock. So has acted to Guttenberg just so, as it actually is the normal case.
If something was going to happen in a normal operation, then these employees would be dismissed but also. It is definitely not OK, that about half of the work is plagiarized, as if that would make a “small” College student, he would be going on not only his doctorate, but also her career would be a single disaster. Zu Guttenberg would in my opinion aware be need,. that is something no if in order, so he demands honesty and hard work by his own students. Also the reason that he had family, is of course logical on the one hand, on the other hand, many students of a family and children have and with them such a failure would not be tolerated also. But zu Guttenberg has obviously learned from its mistakes. He “returned his doctorate” and admitted serious faults. It remains questionable whether then precisely withdrawal is the best way.
Because thus it gives is basically defeated all his opponents and especially the media. The rationale that its credibility would have suffered, is maybe not so untrue, but still were more than 85% of German citizens of think that this was a mistake after his resignation. Because certainly suffered his confidence, but you can rebuild this, so even the German Chancellor Angela Merkel to last behind one of their most important Ministers said. However, what is now with his ideas and his reforms? Well, he has begun to change conscription. One could almost say that with the end of compulsory of military service a small revolution has succeeded, because few other politicians would probably come up with this idea, or would have tried to implement them, because it takes strong nerves and an extreme willpower that zu Guttenberg at least outward and repeatedly had, and also has. With zu Guttenberg German politics today has lost a very important politician in any case. Maybe human he has made a big mistake with its thesis, but zu Guttenberg has mobilized the masses and to the make with installed. He impressed people with his style, because he was just a politician who was close to the people. I myself was the big election campaign at an event to Guttenbergs and was excited about his relaxed, natural way. We must be curious who may occupy this space in the next few days. It is questionable whether this leads to Guttenberg’s plans so, as he has imagined it. 01 March 2011, Desiree-Sophie Lepell
