CenterWorld-East is the home of the Reichstag - the Parliamentary Building in Metropolis.

With the dedication inscribed over the entrance "Dem Deutschen Volke" [to the German people] it is fitting that this describes Metropolis also, but with all nationalities included.

Well, each time I visited this building I had similar thoughts. On one hand it's strange to have the German Reichstag building as international Metropolis parliament. But on the other hand, most of the time there are no meetings in it and it's a great touristical place.

Maybe it would be a good idea to create some scripted "branding functionality". What do I mean? Some hours before a parliament meeting starts, all the German flags, the German eagle, maybe even the letters "dem deutschen Volke" will be replaced by for example Metropolis or OpenSim flags, the Metropolis emblem or something alike. And after the Parliament meeting, the building switches back to "tourist mode" on button click.

I like it, and it got me to research it also, which was quite interesting.

It is built on the land where a Prussian Prince or Aristocrat had his Palace and took some time to acquire. It was abandoned for some time then remodeled rather recently.

It has been a symbol that has had many different types of societies use it for several reasons.

Then I followed some links and read even more of a couple of hundred years of Germany, specifically about the Unification which I had never read about, specifically...I had read more generalized centuries type histories.

Germany, The Holy Roman Empire which replaced Rome [aside from Constantinople of course] and the Visigoths, the Lombards and such tribes, fascinate me.

There have been so many people wandering through this country - the Romans, the Vikings, the Hungarians, the Slavs, the Swedish, the French - it actually always was a melting pot. Could have been a fun party, unless 19th century hadn't invented nationalism.

I love your idea Mareta, and will check what we could come up with to realize that. On first thought it should not be all too difficult...

History often has interesting aspects, but in this special case I don't think this building we should affiliate too much with the "Third Reich". As it burned down, the Nazi propaganda said it would have been caused by communists. So they used the Reichstag to justify harassments and prosecution against political contrahents. But they never rebuilt it and so never used the building during their dictatorship. And I think, they would have used any other occasion for their propaganda targets, the Reichstag fire was only "fortunate" coincidence which supported their plans.

Not that I am into conspiracy theories, and I also do not discuss politics anymore, in any real way.

But Mareta's link [and the ones I followed from there] kinda reminds me of the Patriot Act passed directly after the Trade Center plane crashes of 11 Sept 2001 which has resulted, in reality, in many reductions of freedoms we once held dear in America, and consequently, across the world.
