This month the new hate speech law came into effect. I had made already a video on its limited impact because of its collision with the data protection laws (title: Germany’s vapid fight against speech). The user data on the internet remains rather well protected. In this video I’m talking about the changes to the speech laws themselves where had been altered by the new piece of legislation.
Angela Merkel has cobbled together a long list of policies to fight the “far-right”. Of course, this is not about the handful of neo-Nazis who are drunk by lunchtime. Nobody in his right mind cares about them.
The new German fanaticism will be flushed through various ministries. In this episode I will run you through the items that belong to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection, the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Defence. Merkel’s goons don’t even shy away from lecturing others about colonialism, which was a fairly mixed period of time with positive and negative aspects.
