"What has made the most joy you last year?" "What has made the most concern you last year?" "And what are you hoping the new year?"
We wanted to get out exactly once. At least once in the year, we wanted to hear your opinion, an opinion as they might otherwise only in the redemptive round of Stammtisches is pronounced.
In other words, the people's...... well, you know M. And for this purpose we asked the Allensbacher Institute for public opinion research, to make a survey, which covered a cross-section of the population, selected according to scientific aspects this survey for us. Every U.S. citizen is at least symbolically once represented. And that they each handle in the full lives would be just a systematic selection, let us confirm Mrs Dr. Noelle-Neumann: "think of a small model, the scale model of the aircraft or the small model of a House. "The representative cross section is such a let population model with 2000 people Instead of 39 million."
Scientifically filtered through punch cards and Hollerithmaschinen arose thus public opinion over the past year. Your joys, your hopes and your worries.
And what was the biggest concern?
You will be surprised. She has achieved an almost painful record with 39%: the concern to their own well-being, or to the health.
Maybe we're too. Keep in mind... but the approach to prosperity admits that yes even certain exceptions in Germany. 5% of the population complain that houses worry about...... and 17% of the chronic shortage of money.
And what has you irritated? On the development of fashion for example, which no man can keep up with more.
The modern transportation provided for the daily hassles. Yes, the measure is fully shaken. For the ongoing trouble the competent tax office the Lord in the background, am I.
Totally not be overlooked: the heartache. There are window cracks.
Yes, Yes and failed infidelities.
Trouble with the boss. And trouble with the TV program.
And why now these images of horror? After all, the nuclear arms race was called concern of the year 15% of the population.
Must it be policy because again?
Out of necessity, because under the same heading appears the fear of the ongoing threat of war. Quemoy was reason to be uneasy enough.
Oh yes, if back far into the Turkey which clashing peoples...... then turned Right away the Americans and 1 5% takes the war fear a tolerable degree of as fraction of this 15% appears then finally the fear nourished by the Soviet bloc from the Soviet Union.
Germany's concern no. 1. Right, exactly 1% of the German population may refer to the Division of Germany as a main concern of the year and the fever curve of national disunity rises and rises.
A concern by also minimum magnitude: the economic situation. The buying power of the Deutsche mark. The general rise in prices and the slogan: Buy what's holding the bag.
But the youth, who has worried about pretty.
Are you so sure? As a result of our survey, it is Not at all in appearance, although, Yes, although we have to do it here with problems.
But wanted to thank you!
Certainly! And the greatest pleasures of the year have been identified as so often in passing, linger, thinking, and At last in the grab.
The big word was "Family" and with joyful satisfaction, we confirm that the humanity-preserving impulses determine also the result of our survey.
See, this is it, the main character. Oh how cute. Well, with the result that 24% of all pleasures in the field of harmonious family life were, nobody can certainly be sad.
The whole thing seems to me like a philosophy of small satisfactions...
And that we would 2nd holiday and vacation even with joy No..
Sunny Lido...... and in the shadows of everyday life... for 15 of hundred there was nothing better than that.
With 8% health is praised, the recovered as well as the indestructible.
At 12%, an improvement of finances is palpable. Typical!-13 is my lucky number!
And 5% happy about a new apartment.
Of Justice for convenience but we To want announce that the fashion for many by a perfectly acceptable page showed accepted. But we finally determine that for 2% of the population that was most beautiful pleasure in the pleasure and festivals celebrations...... which proved would be, that the holiday rage of the West German Federal citizen governed...... well the working day... No! But in the downturn. Still, it was quite nice what's going on.
And it was not so ' Very much been our active youth... and also the environment plays no significant role.
But the joy of the cultural contribution of our century! That is noble, but an incorrect display.
And I keep asking myself, is this now with the art or ourselves.
Main thing that man has had elsewhere its fun and those that it have To want this way, he was granted which subsequently even by heart.
A weird fun.
Not yet, but politics. There were political events that were Not at all registered. French worries just held the French concerns.
The year was a disaster year.
But the disasters were far away. With the distance the event loses its severity and the vibration has the duration of weekly news report, not less, but also No more. Long forgotten, although the whole world about the Munich air disaster.
And the joyful triumph over the conquest of the South Pole? A joy that has left us more than cold in the end.
Also coming in our poll results remarkably not revealed: still not spared us remains a concern. No one spoke of it, nobody has made itself perhaps thought. But not even To find you, that the development of technology is increasingly slipping from the hands of the people, that it is oppressive if one closes one's eyes, even more, as if to keep it open.
And we ourselves? A plaything of our inventions that let us appear rather ridiculous as large.
Is it not a dangerous game, that boils down to conquer the Moon, to rule the Earth?
We live in the age of the great standards and are so happy about any little happiness. We shine under the motto "for a more humane world" huge Atomic crystals and if we now return to your hopes for the year 1959, there are only very modest things on which there is a risk a tentative look.
Health and a little spare change their own apartment and a beautiful holiday The end of barbed wire and the beginning of peace. This is so little and yet so A lot.
