Pallas Athena in front of the Parliament Building in Vienna. The statue, which is 5.5 m high, was erected between 1893 and 1902.
Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, was never part of Parlament’s interior inside. That explains a lot! Wisdom was never part of Austrian politics. Meanwhile it’s possible that the Godess and all her wisdom already has or will abandon the entire Republik.
Sadly most Austrians are incapable of learning from history, because they are surrounded and intrigued by „traditional brown soil“. Nobody will act, but everybody – after everything went down the hill – will be prepared to say: „It wasn’t my fault!“
