German car industry doesn’t deliver what Deutsche Post needed, so they built is themselves. And now increase capacity to sell it externally as well. I’ve said before that we are going to see an entire industry turned upside down. And it is already happening. Not mainstream yet, but I’d be surprised if any of the traditional car makers survive the next 10 years. To quote Tesla’s Elon Musk: “The future is now”.

Außer sie machen aus Versehen mal was kaputt. Deswegen lässt man solche Leute normalerweise eigentlich nicht an Atomknöpfe. Normalerweise.

This is a very comprehensive article, digging into the very details of moral vs. peace treaty. And it beautifully explains why a morally motivated tolerance against everybody (incl. say Nazis, extremists of any kind, or just those annoying people who give a fuck about others) is fundamentally wrong. And dangerous.
