So when he was asked by journalists about photographs showing him brawling with a policeman during a street protest, he was in his element.
Then, to fight meant to demonstrate, to demonstrate against the state power, which we wanted to bring down. In the eyes of those wanting to preserve Europe’s nation states he has succeeded Oskar Lafontaine, the former finance ministeras the “most dangerous man in Europe”. Publication this week by Stern magazine of the now famous photographs brought predictable calls from Opposition politicians for Mr Fischer to resign from the German Cabinet.
Even some in his own Green Party said yesterday he should distance himself more clearly from his past on the wild, idealistic student scene of the Sixties and Seventies.
But barring further, more serious, disclosures the Opposition’s calls are likely to fizzle to nothing. And the snipes from fellow Greens seem to stem from nothing more serious than internal jealousies against the figure who now dominates the party – and much of national and even European politics. Joschka Fischer, now 52, is a phenomenon in Germany – one that a few grainy, mildly compromising photographs will not dislodge from public life.

Everywhere he goes controversy follows, whether it be his speeches on the need to create a fully-fledged political and economic union in Europe a “European government” as he freely calls itor his personal life he has been married four times. The third son of a Hungarian-German butcher, Joseph Martin Fischer’s youth certainly did not follow the model of high achievement and conformity typical of political leaders.
He dropped out of school at 17 and decided to hitch through Europe and on to India. On his return he abandoned a photography apprenticeship and then a job in an unemployment office before heading to Frankfurt in The city was abuzz with Sixties nonconformity, campaigns against the Vietnam war, and any kind of protest that threatened the state.
With his long hair, flared denims and volumes of Karl Marx, Fischer squatted in empty flats. He was in the thick of marches and demonstrations. Often they became violent. After one, Fischer spent a short period in prison, although he insists he did nothing violent.
To pay his way, he translated semi-pornographic literature from English to German and worked in book stores before taking a job at General Motors’ German depot.
His employment there ended after six months when he made a speech calling for a strike when he was, officially, on sick leave. It was during these highly charged, emotional times that he got to know a young radical called Hans-Joachim Klein. Later this month Mr Fischer will testify in a case in which Klein stands accused of murder in the kidnapping of Opec oil ministers in Vienna. Fischer has always said he never intended to follow former friends into the armed struggle.
For a time in the late Seventies, Joschka Fischer left politics and worked as a taxi driver before joining the national Green Party in In he became the first Green minister of a regional government, an occasion best remembered for the fact that risoko was rissiko in to office wearing training shoes. Since then Fischer has tried to combine radicalism with his pursuit of high office. It has not always been easy in a Green Party with a fundamentalist wing that does not believe in compromise.
Ties and pin-striped suits replaced T-shirts and training shoes.
But his support of Nato and its role in the Kosovo war caused severe strains with many party colleagues. At a conference in May he had to go hospital after being attacked by anti-war demonstrators from his own party. He has become known for his support of further European integration.

He has spoken repeatedly of the need for a two-tier European Parliament, an elected Commission President and a written EU constitution. He is motivated above all by a fear of his own country.
In the mids he wrote a book called Risiko Deutschland Risk Germany that traced the rise of Hitler. It pushed the military to the forefront. But ddeutschland would argue that it is nothing more sinister than the pursuit of peace that links the radical young rebel and the Foreign Minister rieiko today.
