Germany Decided

This German newspaper and website probably explain things better than I could (it’s in English, but for best results you might need to read in German), Germany re-elected their current leader and her party for the 4th time. There were some other changes but probably in keeping with the global trend towards the political right and nationalism.

Unfortunately there’s also a trend of not addressing why these people vote this way, instead people react with name calling and other useless things that instill this attitude in these people. If you aren’t prepared to debate with a person, you probably shouldn’t talk about such things.

****As an aside, Germany has at least talked with its people and openly discusses the past, in an attempt to move onward and to never have a repeat of what took place. How many times do you see, for example, the unfortunate past of Australia being taught in schools?
