Berlin - a highly questionable entity but at any rate a monstrous one. Maybe Berlin is just a perfect mechanism, a faultlessly operating force, going who knows where. On that basis Munich is a badly functioning mechanism with old fashioned parts. Or if as they say all Europe, and Germany in particular, is ill, then Berlin is a hot fantastic fever and Munich a case of sleeping sickness (with, of course, outbreaks of utter folly). So, in for a penny, in for a pound, one resigns oneself and settles for Berlin. 1
