Zero The Hero

Or Hero the Zero, if you prefer.

Zero

German of the day: Perfektionismus. That means perfectionism. But what it really means here in Germany these days is something else altogether. The Germans are now perfect at getting everything wrong. The days of German perfectionism are long gone and they are reminded of it daily.

Heroes to zeros: how German perfectionism wrecked its Covid vaccine drive – The same thoroughness that made Angela Merkel’s government a pandemic role model is now holding it back.

This time Angie let Brussels handle the vaccination planning, like a good European. BIG strategic blunder. That blew up in her face big time. But she can never get it right, really. The Germans are damned if they do (as in do it alone), damned if they don’t.
