"Continue like this" and "policy on sight" have their advantages, but these are not really convincing options in the long run. In a total of four scenarios (and six sub-scenarios), Klaus Burmeister, Alexander Fink, Beate Schulz-Montag and Karlheinz Steinmüller have described in shich direction Germany could develop:
- Scenarios 1A-1C: Acceleration - where we end up if we stand up to change
- Scenarios 2A-2C: New Horizons - freedom, justice and open questions in the dream space
- Scenario 3: Deliberate Decoupling - opportunities and dangers of a German special path
- Scenario 4: Old Borders - forward into the past
All in all, the book is a fact-based plea for more visionary thinking and more courage for social experiments.
