Always hate first of all the place where you come from

This is a place called Myrafälle (Myra Falls) in Lower Austria, the part of Austria I originally come from. I think one should always be critical of any sort of origins, sometimes you have to emancipate yourself from them in order to develop. This is especially true in Austria because it is the country that has bred National Socialism. Fascism especially is at home and hides in the provinces and at those places, where you think that they are very beautiful.

For me, this is also true for Salzburg. I like its nature, especially its lakes, but I hate its conservatism, its overall bourgeois mood, its lack of counter-, youth- and student-culture, its idealization of Mozart, and the mass of people that thinks like people back in Mozart’s days did.
