George Orwell — ‘War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
Think about that one….
This is an integration minister entrusted with the task of creating an environment for the successful integration of diverse peoples into the German culture. You would think that within a country whose politicians are fully devoted to ‘multiculturalism’, that the German culture would be found a spot to survive. This ethnic Turk would NEVER say that about Turkish culture/society…EVER.
NOTE: Further they fall, back into the mired mixture of tribalism and feudalism.
Integration Commissioner Says German Culture Does Not Exist, ‘Diversity Is Nation’s Strength’
German culture does not exist and the nation’s history has been shaped by “immigration and diversity”, according to Federal Integration Commissioner Aydan Özoğuz, who has argued migrants should not be expected to assimilate.
Writing in Tagesspiegel, the Commissioner denounced the debate over Leitkultur (meaning ‘dominant’ or ‘guiding culture’) — in which conservative politicians have suggested migrants should assimilate to a shared set of cultural values — as “ridiculous and absurd”.
“And no wonder, because it’s simply not possible to identify any sort of culture that’s specific to Germany beyond the language.
“Even historically, it is regional cultures, immigration and diversity that have had a bigger role in shaping our history.”
Globalisation, and the ongoing transformation of Germany into a society of ever increasing numbers of different peoples and lifestyles, “leads to diversity being amplified and multiplied further”, Özoğuz added.
