“This part of our website is reserved for the more personal opinions and communications by one of our Managing Partners, Felix Schauerte. It will cover a wider range of topics in the political, historical, psychological as well as social spheres. Note should be taken that it does not purport to be scientific in the sense that any possible previous research and commentary on a chosen topic had been taken into account. To the contrary, it is meant to be more spontaneous with a fresher, unbiased view on matters. The flipside will be occasional lapses in judgment, which could have been avoided thru better and more profound preparation on the subject matter. The author will entirely and personally take the blame for that.”
