Just to add to what Michael wrote, the acts of political violence mentioned - in Hanau, Cologne, and in Kassel - are all West German cities.

One of the most pernicious lies of "totalitarianism theory" is the notion that the rise of far-right violence can somehow be laid at the feet of the GDR.

>>It is disingenuous for the author of this NYT article to decry the lack of understanding among former East Germans about the wonders of democracy. The West German state never got rid of its Nazis. Far from it. They regained control, if they ever lost it, of their business empires. They were often quickly "rehabilitated" and went into politics. They continued to hold sway in the German military. This is all not to mention that reunification involved the pillage of the E. German economy and the immiseration of most of its people. Democracy has little to do with German affairs, just as it has little relevance for life here.<<
