The Solution

After the uprising of the 17th June
The Secretary of the Writers Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

by Bertolt Brecht

This poem 'Solution' tells us to find out better solution for people and society.
Very prescient, considering the Dems and big business are electing/importing a new people via illegal immigration
This proves that Brecht could on occasion be critical of Communism, while remaining a Communist all his latter life. All his poems, not unsurprisingly, read far better in the original German.
How simple and how true...
