The American Academy in Berlin/Distinguished Visitors
List of Distinguished Fellows at The American Academy in Berlin. Apart from (or including) a certain number of famous artists, a remarkable number of Fellows are U.S. deep state functionaries on a junket, not rich enough to be the real movers and shakers. A large number are member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
During their visits of a few days to a few weeks, they engage with the public and their professional counterparts in Berlin and throughout Germany.
By hosting Distinguished Visitors — influential figures from the United States in public policy, law, business, finance, journalism, the humanities, and the arts, "the Academy fosters greater understanding and dialogue on current issues"- i.e explain/create a consensus on the establishment line among deep state functionaries.
