If entertainment is really involved in the "ruin of our society," we're done for.Because just like books, essays, poetry, biographies and just about every literary styleyou can name, entertainment accomplishes the exact same goal we've beenaccomplishing for thousands of years: telling stories. One need only observe their local theatre to admit that entertainment is one ofthe most successful, enjoyable, thought-provoking activities available. The last goodmovie I saw was nothing short of breathtaking, insightful, powerful and unpredictable.Everyone in the theatre was having a wonderful time - laughing at funny moments,crying at sad ones, even clapping at the end. We were all together, as one, witnessingthis wonderful story unfold, extremely attentive, at the edge of our seats, for the entireshow. The movie posed excellent moral dilemmas which got us all to think: was theman right in his choice to stand up for his country, risking his life, his people, all in the name of freedom.

Has anyone else discovered this fantastic discount card for classical concerts etc. It costs €15 (only available to the under 30s, sorry!) and is valid for one year. You can use the card to buy tickets one hour before the performance starts at a fixed price of €8 for concerts or €10 for opera and ballet. It means you take pot luck with seats but sometimes get the best seats for a ridiculously cheap price!! You can also take a friend with you to specific concerts once a month as long as they are under 30 too. The website is (in German) http://www.classiccard.de/
