To be independent of “politically correct” and “commercially useful” has been a wish of mine for a number of years. Assisting Democrats Abroad with their useful work is one thing, but making public comments about the politics of the Democratic Party on the pages of the Democratic Party is just not the way to go. So my blog on the website http://www.demsinberlin.de has always been limited. I have tried to keep myself “out of trouble”. Comments and ideas are not appreciated by the leadership of an organization, when they do not conform with the general direction of that organization. One does not criticize Barack Obama in the middle of the election campaign. One is held to criticise the Republican opponents and those who criticize Barack Obama. So where does one go with the politically “incorrect” criticism. There is no such animal as “falsche Kritik” (“false criticism”). This blog will be a vent for that pressure that has been building up over the past three years.
And running a kite company is wonderful. I have been doing that for the past 28 years. But there are times, when I like to step outside of the commercial aspect of kiting and just return to the beauty and passion of kite flying and kite making. So this blog will also be an attempt to go to that space and work with it as I please.
I ask you to bear with me or even bear against me. An interactive dialog can only be useful!
With high flying democratic aspirations!
