Germany, WaPo & Mauriac

Yesterday's Washington Post Outlook section had an article by Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff on the role of Germany in Europe, as it relates politically and economically to the crisis over the Euro-zone and its finances. Yes, the discussion is about Germany's role in the continent's economy, but that discussion has a deep undercurrent of concern about Germany's historical role in Europe.

It brought to mind the famous quip of Francois Mauriac: "I love Germany so dearly, I hope there will always be two of them."
