....Germany has ceased to be a true democracy already during the 80s. There is an encompassing, fateful consent among vast majority of parliament members - whether in power or opposition - to a total exclusion of citizens from any political decision making and to a socialistic agenda at ANY cost. By an exorbitant bureaucracy acting strictly top-down the state has deeply penetrated and over-regulated all aspects of ordinary life as well as education, virtually leaving no air to breathe or to unfold. Public hearings about relevant topics, commonplace elsewhere, are a rare exception even on a municipal level. Political, legal, administrative and educational system is widely infiltrated with ideologically biased characters often antipathetic to civilians. Politically incorrect demonstrations often are either prohibited up front or dissolved by police forces with flimsy excuses. Police officers or officials going public about such serious deficits face immediate disciplinary action. Most striking are the media leaving the broad public totally in the dark about what is going wrong in the country though. In case of the highly unlike event of people ever rising up expect to see a crack down like behind the former iron curtain.
