There simply aren\'t enough beachfront houses, luxury cars, and seats at the theatre for everyone who wants one!

In this sense, Stresemann agreed that the only way forward was for Germany to pay reparations as demanded by the Treaty of Versailles. To the nationalists in Germany, this was an admittance of guilt f
