Greens and Reds

February 1983
National Review;2/4/1983, Vol. 35 Issue 2, p95
The article considers the transformation of the Green Party in Germany. Their love for nature and distaste for conventional party politics endeared the Greens to Germans when they first appeared in the political scene. However, the Greens have changed over the years and this came very clear when they announced their opposition to the planned modernization of theater nuclear weapons by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This move signifies that the part does not want to antagonize the Soviet Union.
