> If you studied science or engineering in Germany, you likely have taken no university-level courses at all in literature, history, arts, economics, political science, or social science. Germany has become a country of Fachidioten, like you yourself seem to be.

What for should we do this? We have extensive coverage of this areas in higher schooling at gymnasium (
