It’s a shame!

Elections are a visible sign of somehow intact democracy. I love elections and I encourage everyone to privilege to vote. However this time it is harder than ever to vote for one of the parties. They are rotten, untrustworthy, mendacious, learning resistant and they have not understood what is important to normal people.

They focus on those who are scared by refugees. The focus on old people. They focus on bullshit and – of course – there’s a new strong right-wing movement which benefits from the weakness and lerning resistance of the others.

More and more people are disgusted from the behavior of the parties and in particular from some of the main actors of these parties… And I can understand this to some degree. The problem is, that some of the people are naive and some are stupid. They vote for right-wing parties – if it is because of protest or because they’re scared: It doesn’t matter… The result is worse in every manner, because in makes those liars, opprtunists, fashists, rassists and right-wing morons stonger and stronger and the only effect it has to the other parties is, that they try to get these people back by copying their right-wing ideology.

The most dangeous people are those who are disgusted enought to deny voting. These people made it even easier to the right-wing parties to increase influence, because not given votes will reduce the needed number of real votes during the election. Some of them see this as a political statement – but that’s (sorry) self-betraying bullshit. Others just lose trust and hope and see no more benefit in elections. This must change as soon as possible.

If you have your eyes open while walking or driving to bavarian cities and villages, you’ll recognize all these election posters. I’ve taken some photos here in Munich and post them along with this post… Just have a look on this manifestation of mental bankruptcy.

You see old – sometimes very old – people (some of them are even older in spirit than they look), some random phrases and they think that people forget all the betraying, all the unqworthy behavior, all the lies, all the fashism… They really thgink it’s enough to place gazillions of election posters in the streets…

By the way… Why do I mention the old people? Well, the young generation is the future. The young generation works hard. The young generation generates taxes. But old people make politics. Old people have little perspective in the meaning of availbe life span. Old people mostly do not work from some point of their life. Old people produce high costs in the care and health sector. Old people have completely other interests than young people. Old people often have difficulties with changes and innovations.

Old people may be very good advisors. They have experience. They have gathered much knowledge in many areas. They would be good teachers. But in my hones opinion they should step back to allow the young generation to shape the future.

Young people have fresh ideas. They may act more unconventional. They grew up with the internet – and therefore with a borderless, multicultural space. They are the backbone of our economy and they earn the money we all need to keep our country moving and to pay all the required costs for care and health.

Young people have less problems with refugees and – in general – with people with other cultural backgrounds. They are less scared by changes and innovations and therefore they are more open for cooperations and synergies. And – I truly believe this – they are less interested in relgious or political fundamentalism.

Politics should always point towards the future

Politics should always point towards the future. Why should it be dominated by people who primarely have a past and think in the past?

And why should we accept the shameful bullshit all of the parties do at the moment, because they just want to get a bit of the power, but are not really interested in opur needs? Why should we elect all these betrayers, liars, morons? Well, a really hard question… And I do not have a good answer at the moment…

Anyway… There’s one thing which is reall important: We should stop the right-wing parties from getting more and more power. And if this means to vote for obvious idiots, liars, betrayers: It’s still better than having fashists, rassists, nazis in our parliaments. The primary goal for this election therefore should be to reduce damage as much as possible… And this means: Do not vote for the right-wing parties!

The goal for the next elections should be to remove the betrayers, liars, idiots from the key-positions in the parties and – probably – found a new party which focuses more on humanity, ethics and the people’s need

A dignified life needs a roof over the head

One of the biggist issues these days is the disgusting speculation with rents – and in oparticular if your part of the more than 7 million people in Germany who depend on Hartz IV. Most people have normal day jobs and every day it becomes harde to fulfill a basic demand: A sdafe place to life. If you depend on Hartz IV it is expremely hard to hold you current flat – especially in the biug cities. But even if you have a job, it’s every day harder.

This is one of the biggest challenges in our country. And there’s no poltical party showing trustworthy and believable activities in this field.

Instead they create and cultivate fears. Fear of refugees, fear of foreigners, fear of everything that is new or different, is being forced by some parties and supposedly chosen security as the core issue. The fears of the people are unfounded. They are only exploited and cultivated.

The much more important topic, a safe roof over the head seems to be less important. And if you believe recent surveys, it is… But why? Easy thing: If you tell people that refugees are gangsters, terrorists, rapists, fundamentalists and that the tok away our money, compromise security, they develop fears – the less education they have and/or the older they are, the more fear they will create and cultivate. Not to forget that especially the now old generation has good pensions, own property and and somehow secured live conditions.

In a traditional conservative cultural space like Bavaria it is then even easier to manipulate people with this kind of fears. And therefore they think it is a important topic – but it is not. Refugees are no real problem. First we knewed long time before they arrived that they will come – no one walks the distance in one day. Second we also have seen the political and economical development in other countries for a long time and could forecast that there will be more refugees in the closer future. Lastly they are not mainly dumb or criminals, they are normal people – just with a different cultural background. Most important: Its not as expensive as many people think. I would bet that investing into our army or wasting money for badly concepted and badly leaded projects took more money.

However… It is still important to vote. And it is even more important that the right-wing parties do not get that much votes…
