What's the difference between ihnen (you) and ihnen (they)?
Capitalism ;-) 'ihnen' = 'them', 'Ihnen'='you' (dative).
Capitalization* capitalism is the economic and political system
And while I'm here, is the zu necessary in this sentence? Couldn't it just be 'ich konnte nicht ihnen gelangen? With the zu I thought it meant 'I could not reach their place'.
Thanks, I know. I tried to make a joke ;-) Yes, the 'zu' is necessary.
I, for one, liked the joke.
Ah, I see, alas I don't understand it, but nice haha
It wasn't a particularly good one, I agree ;-)
Here in Europe people become increasingly critical about capitalism and if something goes wrong, 'Capitalism' is often the answer you hear to the why question.
Arrrgh! Das Kapital(isation)! Again!
Why the "zu" when it sometimes doesn't need it?
