Abstract: The reunification of Germany at the fall of the Berlin Wall did not automatically accomplish the goal of reuniting the German people, who had five decades of differences in post-World War II government, education, and culture to overcome. Artist/novelist Ingo Niermann suggests ten provokingly simple ideas to reunite his homeland, including a new grammar, a new political party, and assigning allotment gardens to unemployed people and retirees. He also proposes building a Great Pyramid in a derelict region of eastern Germany, meant to be the tallest building in the world, which would be a tourist attraction and economic engine for the region.
