This came to mind reading the above:

Half of Europe, at least half of Eastern Europe is already on the road to
chaos, moving in a drunken state in holy delusion along the abyss and
singing also, singing intoxicated and hymn-like like Dmitri Karamasoff sang.
The common man laughs about the songs and is offended, the saint and the
prophet are listening in tears.

Schon ist halb Europa, schon ist zumindest der halbe Osten Europas auf dem
Wege zum Chaos, fährt betrunken in heiligem Wahn am Abgrund entlang und
singt dazu, singt betrunken und hymnisch wie Dmitri Karamasow sang. Über
diese Lieder lacht der Bürger beleidigt, der Heilige und Seher hört sie mit
Tränen.
