we're running out of time, what we are talking about. When it comes to climate protection, it is already five to twelve. The social works urgently need to be on a long-term sustainable financial Basis. The framework agreement with the EU closes due to the start of the election year a time window. And today rather than tomorrow, Switzerland will abolish their tax privileges for international companies.
We are under constant time pressure. In politics as in the economy. In Switzerland as in the whole world. It needs to go quickly. The Public – Yes, even the media demand answers. The speed influenced search the solution.
speed boost. Today we travel in less than an hour by train from Zurich to Bern. A rapid Internet gives us the Latest in the Tagi App immediately read. A short session makes working life more efficient. But pace is not to be equated with performance. Not everything can be accelerated. Some things need time.
Without the pressure from outside – the man saw the Bank secret moves to Switzerland as a turtle.
A candle is not thick when dipping the wick continuously in the hot wax pot. A new law is better adapted to, when the consultation room and the template for correctness and acceptance checks. Just because the foreign Minister presses on the accelerator, the framework agreement with the EU in domestic politics rather than a majority. The entire Federal Council was shot by Ignazio Cassis fellow; he could draft so far, not a Yes to the contract by the rings. This can be interpreted as a management weakness. A consensus-trimmed troop is only as fixed as its most reluctant members. Without the pressure from outside – the man saw the Bank secret moves to Switzerland as a turtle. The Federal Council Cassis accelerated in the first line itself.
Harried politicians and business leaders make the announcement about the actual success. Also, in global terms, not lacking in 2018 examples of this: The British Prime Minister, Theresa May acted upon Brexit nervous, without the many pronouncements have brought real progress. The attention of the audience, and the disenchantment. Knee-jerk reactions are not necessarily the best: After the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa in Italy gave the Minister of the interior Matteo Salvini, immediately the blame on the EU. US President, Donald Trump turned to the G-7 summit, the joint final Declaration immediately re-eligible. Of a responded with accusations, the other with threats. Both is unwise.
Better would be to pause for a moment. The fit is obviously bad to our time and to the medially-staged duration of the election campaign many actors. In the long run, the policy makes it more credible. Who holds the Ideals of democracy, of liberalism and of the discursive decision-making processes highly, to know the time taken for the search any solution. The more extreme the positions, the longer it goes on. Policy works according to other rhythms than the private sector. Or to say it in the words of the writer Peter von Matt: "It has come to us the feeling for the duration of the policy is lost."
Switzerland needs people with vision who have the courage and the energy to think long-term and to act.
This is not to excuse the Procrastination of problems. Switzerland has actually pressed too long to the core issues of the future. A higher retirement age is taboo. The climate change displaced. The digitization postponed. The will, to tackle resolutely the big topics, is missing. "Only the one who is, not to be late to the finish," said Federal councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann in his farewell speech.
patience does not justify the Insistence on positions, as we have in the current legislature so often experienced. The compromise is advised in times of ideological camps that education is in disrepute. The naysayers also have a boost in intra-Helvetian discourse. Switzerland, however, was always most successful when their leaders spoke only of concordance but also according to acted. This is not a matter of time or political Persuasions, but a question of attitude.
2019 are Federal elections. Even though Switzerland is flourishing still, and thanks to its economic strength and the high quality of life in countries compare on top of swing: The challenges are enormous. The country needs people with foresight, the summon constantly, the risk of failure, but the courage and the energy to think long-term and to act. The time is part of the constructive forces.
