I believe Germany should re-adopt its old 'Nazi' anthemWatch
I've changed my tune from a sarcastic "nationalism doesn't have any place in a national anthem, its one step from patriotism to nazism", yes. I am making the same point in both threads, if you are capable of seeing through sarcasm:
I'm not sure the posting of pictures negates the fact that you blamed the Holocaust on the phrase 'Deutschland, Deutschland über alles' - maybe you were being sarcastic, or maybe you were being deliberately controversial. After so much clickbait, I don't know what you actually believe anymore.
People are too different for that to work. Nations are very important. They work best when their citizens are much more similar to one another. Speaking the same language would be good, for a start. Whatever language, message, and style your "Planet Anthem", the majority of people will dislike it.
Most of Europe is engaged in transforming from a variety of small, petty states, to a grand European state; a bigger version of how Germany transformed from many ethnically German states to one big German state (although sadly Austria and a few others were left out). But the new form will still be a state.
Germany made an effort to work an what went wrong in the past, most importantly in WW2, and this includes forbidding the
things, that the Nazis used for their Antisemitical propaganda.
In additon, the song "Die Wacht am Rhein" is from a different period of time in german history, to be more precise when the German Empire was founded in 1871. It is a sign of the uprising nationalism (that was later missused by the Nazis) that began to be very important for many europeen states in the 19th century, for example france and was used in a completly different context. Therefore it is hard to compare "Die Wacht am Rhein" and the "Deutschlandlied"
not in our lifetime but in a few centuries people will be proud to be a part of humanity. things required before that are: enforced veganism, space-colonisation, global democratic feudalism.
Esp Veganism. I will defend my KFC addiction to my dying days!
"We" did not linke it to the Nazi period, it already had a connection with that time. Why are you so interested in the "Deutschlandlied" if I may ask?
It is true that the denazification, which was a part of the potsdam agreement in 1945 tried to get rid of everything that was connected with the Nazis very fast.
But I think that that was important, in order to give the citizens the chance to move on, what is your opinion about that?
Don't worry they won't be long. Studies are finding a strong link between meat-eating and cancer.
- anorexia and other diet related mental health issues.
- pomposity and cult like intolerance of differences of opinion.
Guess you're doomed then
