Die Tageszeitung taz - Germany | 10/12/2015

Guided by Western values

Although Merkel's popularity is waning in Germany she was rightly chosen as Time's Person of the Year, the leftist daily taz believes: "In recent months Merkel has surprised many with her apparently new-found and sudden will to take a stance. Yet in its consistency her position on the refugee issue was in fact almost predictable. She believes in the West and its values. She believes everyone deserves the chance to lead a free life in the market economy. … Now Time Magazine has chosen her as its 'Person of the Year', as the 'Chancellor of the free World' because she is willing to defend that faith against anything - against her cabinet, her own people, and naturally against Vladimir Putin. … Merkel represents many things that the average Facebook haters reject: women's emancipation, scientific rationality and a rather musty faith in the superiority of the West."
