    Are you kidding me? When they're asked what they like about Germans they mention the Lederhosen, the beer, the easy life and the maypole dancing. When they're asked what they dislike about Germans they mention the over-orderliness, the lack of humour, their military behaviour, etc.

    Now you make up your mind which one of these two is the Bavarian and which one is the Prussian. As that's the funny thing --- when they think of how we look like and our custom, they think of us Austro-Bavarians; when they think of how we behave like, they think of the Prussians.

    That's weird... what I most like is the orderliness, efficiency, lack of humor, and military behavior.

    It is not Berlin that is too close to Poland. It is Poland that is too close to Berlin!

    Why don't you consider what they did in South Africa. There was debate on whether Cape Town, Pretoria or Bloemfontein would be the capital of a unified South Africa, they all had there arguments, Cape Town because it is the founding city, Bloemfontein because it is in the center and Pretoria because it would be in the center if SA was to expand, the compromise was that they just split the capital, the judiciary with the supreme court ect ect is in the Judicial Capital of Bloemfontein, the Executive, ie presedential offices and department offices are in the Executive Capital of Pretoria, while the Parliament is in the Legeslative Capital of Cape Town, Why not split the roles of the capitals between Berlin and Vienna?

    Because I despise English, I may be too lazy to translate myself. The following is therefore in English by Google translator readable and once in German so the English / German-speaking can translate itself.

    Union?

    There can only be one German state for one German nation and one people. The Empire. Home, home, shield and weapon of all Germans in the world!

    Both of these cities used to be capital of the German empire and they have a vast history and significance.
    If all the current German countries would not, which would you prefer as capital?
    A Reich capital must express Germany to one-hundredth percent. And it must be central or at a node land / water, so be easily accessible from any point west / north / east / south. Due to the growing nation, the capital also has to represent an anchor point of national history and an epitome of Heimatgut. So one hundred percent Germanism embody. A capital is and must always be a model for the rest of the fatherland, because it is the headquarters of the state, the embodiment of German thought in spirit and deed for the benefit and benefit unique in the world and nowhere else without centuries cultural growth care repeatable.

    Vienna is a Gau capital. Berlin is the capital of the Reich. And someday, who knows? That's the way things should be. Currentl Berlin is a negative example of Germandom and not a role model. Neither cultural nor economic power are reflected in the egalitarian International Socialist who knows no love of homeland and only hatred for Germany. Berlin. Yes, but also Vienna.

    One thing is clear. There will not be a second home somewhere in the jungle or on the moon, it will not exist. We here (I address my glorious people of the Germans) therefore have the duty to form earth and land, an island, an oasis in the far desert. And that has to happen with self-confidence (sovereignty). And then you can again think of capitals in this German (clear) consciousness and do work.


    Union?

    Es kann nur einen deutschen Staat für eine deutsche Nation und ein Volk geben. Das Reich. Zuhause, Heimat, Schutzschild und Waffe aller Deutschen in aller Welt!

    Both these cities used to be capitals of the German empire and they've a vast history and significance.
    If all the current German countries would unite, which would you prefer as capital?
    Eine Reichshauptstadt muss Deutschland zu Einhunderprozent zum Ausdruck bringen. Und sie muss zentral oder an einem Knotenpunkt Land/Wasser liegen, also von jedem Punkt West/Nord/Ost/Süd gut erreichbar sein. Der gewachsenen Nation geschuldet muss die Hauptstadt auch ein Ankerpunkt der Nationalgeschichte und ein Inbegriff von Heimatgut darstellen. Also Einhundertprozent Deutschtum verkörpern. Eine Hauptstadt ist und muss auch immer Vorbild für den Rest des Vaterlandes sein, denn sie ist die Zentrale des Staates, die Verkörperung des Deutschen Denken in Geist und Tat zum Wohl und Nutzen einzigartig auf der Welt und sonst nirgendwo ohne Jahrhunderte kulturelle Wachstumspflege wiederholbar.

    Wien ist eine Gau-Hauptstadt. Berlin ist Reichshauptstadt. Und irgendwann, wer weiß? So sollten die Dinge sein. Aktuell ist Berlin ein Negativbeispiel des Deutschtums und kein Vorbild. Weder Kultur- noch Wirtschaftkraft spiegeln sich im vom gleichmacherischen Internationalen Sozialisten die keine Heimatliebe und nur Hass auf Deutschland kennen wieder. Berlin. Ja, aber auch Wien.

    Eines ist klar. Eine Zweite Heimat irgendwo im Dschungel oder auf dem Mond gibt es nicht, wird es nicht geben. Wir hier (ich spreche mein herrlisches Volk der Deutschen an) haben also die Pflicht aus diesem Pflecken Erde und Land, eine Insel, eine Oase in weiter Wüste zu formen. Und das muss mit Selbstbewusstsein (Souveränität) geschehen. Und dann kann man auch wieder an Hauptstädte in diesem deutschen (deutlichen) Bewusstsein denken und Arbeit tun.



    Is there really a language racism?
    Directly, so as a director, pronounced in space and accepted. I do not have to bow to English: Normally, and for many reasons, you all have to write here in German, even though you understand the reason for not doing it. German is a language of knowledge and simply more expressive / powerful / powerful than the half / half of English in communication.

    Gibt es eigentlichen einen Sprach-Rassismus?
    Direkt, also als Dirketor, ausgesprochen in in Raum gestellt sowie angenommen. Ich muss mich vor dem Englischen nicht verbeugen: Normalerweise und aus vielerlei Gründen müsstet ihr alle hier in Deutsch schreiben, obwohl den Grund des Nichtuns verstehe. Deutsch ist Wissenschaftssprache und einfach Ausdrucksstärker/Kräftiger/Mächtiger als das Halb/Halb des Englischen in Kommunikation.

    Come to think of it, I'm actually surprised no one's suggested Eisenach: The Wartburg being the place where Luther translated much of his bible, and where the famous Wartburgfest of 1817 took place where students of the time pleaded for a unified German nation state. And it's like 100% central, too.

    Anyway, it's kind of amusing. When originally posting in this thread, I voted for Munich. These days I'd much sooner go with Vienna, regardless of its non-central position. I still can't see Berlin as "my" capital, sorry.

    While stationed on the border in Germany- 11th ACR, Fulda- Eisenach was in our zone. When the border came down and we were able to travel to the eastern side, Eisenach was on my extensive list of Places to See precisely because of the Wartburg castle. Reading about it is one thing, but standing there and touching it is a whole different ball game.

    As the Frenchman, Belloq, said in Raiders of the Lost Ark, "We are just passing through history. This IS history".
