Schiller, in our time

Two quotes from the poet seem to sum up the situation in Europe in 2014:

  • "Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain" (Talbot, in: The Maid of Orleans)
  • "The voice of the majority is no proof of justice." (Talbot, in: Maria Stuart)

  • So who is this brilliant "Talbot" guy?
