State of the world
Thoughts, news, ideas, and information that informs our past, present, and future.
There is a focus on borders and walls in these current times, and consequently, a rise in scared xenophobia. Or is it because of xenophobia that there is a focus on borders and walls?
Germany has addressed its past in ways most countries, especially the United States, have not: A sort of national psychoanalysis to keep something like the Third Reich or the Holocaust from ever happening again.
It will only be a matter of time before the accessibility and readily-available nature of A.I. partners will supersede the time and effort it takes to impress a real one.
Raised after the fall of the Berlin Wall and USSR collapse, my relationship to a divided Germany, and of the war that led to it, was a tangential one.
We all know the things we want. We lust, we hide, we lie, we cheat, we need. We desire. It’s inherently, truthfully, human.
Something happens. Something memorable, or kinda cool, or not really that interesting at all, but we have to take pics of it anyway.
Antifa has become a much-maligned group as of late, especially after recent clashes with white supremacists, Nazis, and confederate sympathizers in Charlottesville.
Banksy is an enigma in the art world – and not just because there’s no average Joe who knows his true identity.
There are plenty of antidotes to keep you from being miserable, until we discover the answers lie inward, not outward.
Cancer is seen as an uninvited guest, a dark shadow on a sunny day, a pointedly mean joke without a punchline.
Humanity’s greatest achievement is community: the ability to come together with people from all walks of life for the betterment of our species.
Everybody knows what trolling is. The mainstream media can’t stop talking about it. But it’s no fun when everybody does it, so what will the trolls do now?
Things got off to a shaky start between MN and POTUS. And as our largest cities continue to defy Trump’s orders, it’s clear that isn’t going to change.
The role of the train in human history is one of past, present, and future. Rail travel is improving around the world. Why is the United States falling so far behind?
Voter turnout is low. A growing number of people feel that the current form of American democracy is failing. So, what about technocracy?
Few people would disagree that the world is a better place without Hitler in it. Now people compare Hitler to Donald Trump. But is it really the man who is to blame?
The doorman of a popular St. Pauli brothel sits down with TiltMN to describe a night in Europe’s largest Red Light District.
The arts and culture, food and drink, language and history of Germany shines brightest on the streets of its many unique cities. First stop: Freiburg.

Fake news sites have become increasingly common. Falsified stories were even blamed for the rise of Donald Trump, and for his victory over Hillary Clinton.
