Thus spake Peter Krämer:
"…donors are taking the place of the state. That's unacceptable…. [I]t's not the state that determines what is good for the people, but rather the rich want to decide. That's a development that I find really bad. What legitimacy do these people have to decide where massive sums of money will flow? …superwealthy people want to decide what their money will be used for. That runs counter to the democratically legitimate state. …the US has a desolate social system and that alone is reason enough that donations are already a part of everyday life there."
