ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the political situation of Germany in 1956. German politics reeks of unreality. It deals more with fantasy than with facts. Parties generate fierce hostility over issues which evaporate on examination. Re-unification is the most glaring example. The hollowness of the domestic war around reunification underlines the emptiness of the dispute over rearmament. A coalition between the two major parties controlling the bulk of Parliament would suit the German people's current mood which has no taste for political circuses and runs more to creature comforts.
