From beyond the grave, Metternich on Brussels

Deogolwulf has translated the Grand Inquisitor’s Mein politisches Testament:

In the internal arrangement of the empire, the nationalities gained a position which was bound to be expressed by the selection and in the activity of public officials from the lowest rank to the highest. In a state thus arranged, it is for natural reasons difficult to find men who might set a dam against the preponderance of nationality and comply with strict impartiality in all directions against the heightened demands emerging out of it.

Where’s Beckenbauer when you need him?
