Habermas on Leadership

Jurgen Habermas has published a piece in the New York Times on the topic of the controversy in Germany over the nature of multi-culturalism and it can be accessed here. The piece responds to recent interventions into the public debate in Germany over immigration from Thilo Sarrazin, a politician from the Social Democratic Party and member of the board of the Bundesbank, who encouraged a somewhat eugenicist attitude to said immigrants. Given that Angela Merkel appears to have also joined in the general attitude of finding immigrants a problem this intervention from Habermas has to be regarded as welcome.
