So I kinda feel like many americans must have felt last summer.
In eastern germany neo nazis take to the streets and go on manhunts for people who look different.
And we now live in a a time were we have n minister of the interior who defends these manhunters as people with serious worries that need to be listened to and explains that the biggest problem in the country is immigration.
And now the head officer for the protection of the constitution goes out of his way saying that video recordings of people being hunted may be faked for whatever reasons.
Today I was in my car, in a narrow two-way road. there was an accident, so the cars coming from the two directions were passing aternately in the same lane. There was no police yet, but the people was behaving correctly, and things were pretty smooth. I made a mistake, and got into the opposite lane while a lady was coming. So I politely tried to reverse a couple of meters to leave my car out of the way and let her pass. An old fart in the car behind me started to shout, calling me “asshole” and refusing to reverse to help my maneuver.
I was so astonished I didn’t say anything. But now I’m so disappointed that I hope at the next traffic jam he’ll find some bully who will give him a lesson. F**k you, old neanderthal!
Yesterday I was in the pedestrian tunnel, approaching the end, when I saw some older guy in one of those ginormous electric wheelchair cart whatever things literally crash into the people coming out of the elevator, best that I could tell completely on purpose.
Most people think that it’s going more and more worse. But that’s not the case. For example there was no time without a war in the world. Today the world is in the same (worse) state like in the 1980s. We shouldn’t close our eyes, but we shouldn’t make it more worse than it actually is.
Regarding the press thing, read this German article. The press isn’t able anymore do differ between (important) news and hot air. And this is what scares me.
