Mr. Schmid and the tablets - Rise and fall in the context of the banana republic

Josef Schmid, a political favorite of the first category, grew up with his Viennese "family".
And after stumbling over his many text messages, which have gradually become public, the deep fall came - from the executive floor of his company, directly into the empire of Heinz Pichler.
And although Josef has been considered by many people to be the biggest asshole on God's earth for years, he has found his master in Heinz in being an asshole!
A moral image excerpt with a glimmer of hope.
