There is an alarming trend in German social networks these days:
Caused by the dramatic increase of racist agitation (against refugees), there is an (at least understandable) outcry of people who are disgusted from this behavior and start to agitate themselves against the racists.
The result: People delete each other from their friend’s list and complain about the stupidity of the other site.
You can be against war, poverty and violence, but not against refugees.
(Meaning: It’s not their fault)
We can’t give away everything we have to help refugees.
(Meaning: It’s not our fault)
Now the climate is getting hotter and hotter, people unfriend, insult, threaten each other. People start to hate each other and fight each other. Houses are set on fire. War enters Germany.
In the meantime
- Who speaks with the refugees?
- Who identifies the people in charge and stops them?
- Who is fighting war, poverty and violence?
- Who puts an end to misery and hatred?
- Who makes the world a better place?
Let’s never forget Rosa Luxemburg:
Freedom is always the freedom of dissenters.
Stop fighting your own people! Don’t end friendships! Help each other!
