Olaf Scholz und sein Regierungsstil: Stille Macht, heilige Macht

„Alicia Western, the main character in Cormac McCarthy’s novel Stella Maris, says, ‚Don’t worry about what people think of you, because they don’t do it often.‘ This statement probably doesn’t apply to a Chancellor: There is much speculation and even more writing about Olaf Scholz and his extensive silence. Comments and analyses often come to the quick conclusion that the Chancellor’s silence reveals a lack of leadership, only to then point out that he had promised that those who order leadership from him will receive it. In light of this, the question arises whether the Chancellor’s silence may actually contain powerful strength.“
