A conversation in Montreal about the Munich image problem

The debate about the image problem in Munich is extremely interesting, and more than necessary. I strongly recommend to read the initial article, the counter-article, the Keno answer and the follow-up before reading this article.

Yesterday, I sat down in the Montreal Atomic Café with Dennis Kastrup, a friend of mine that also shares his time between Germany and Canada.
