Talking about small is beautiful ... Since a few months I support a new liberal political group in my native country Austria (small it is and will most likely stay like that forever). This seems to be an awkward thing to do, considering that I live abroad since quite some time. But having spent around 20 years of my life in Austria, the attachment to my originating society will always be strong, at least in the aspect that I work for an Austrian company here in China. Moreover, I think that there is no other society that I know as well as the Austrian, and since political participation is in China basically not possible for neither foreigners nor Chinese nationals, Austria remains the only place, where I can support the development of a society in more ways than paying my taxes.
