Description:
Mother Holle rewarded “the Beautiful” and punished “the Ugly”! But what happened to “Mr Holle”? The rich will not become even richer, the flatterer will not be rewarded, people of colour will not be discriminated against and the antisocial will not be cast out. This is not how it goes. What’s more, we keep shaking the same tree and jumping into the same well. “You keep asking about the hows and whys of the world. In the end you find yourself content with the answer: blacks against whites, reds against browns, greens against blacks, and who knows what other colour against what. After East-West comes North-South, national and cosmopolitan, religious and atheistic, and who knows what other oppositions. It is always the same song and dance: OPPONENT=ENEMY.
