Do we really care about politics or the real problems

Everybody in Germany is talking about the protests happening in Stuttgart concerning the conversion of Stuttgart central railway station. Tons of thousands of people are demonstrating in Stuttgart and Germany in general. That's not the point I'm trying to talk about. The fact that now everybody in Germany feels, that we are a country full of people, that care, bothers me. What are we caring about anyway? About an old building in Stuttgart, which is utterly ugly by the way, a huge pile of money and a couple of old trees. That's all. We go out on the street to demonstrate against that, but we stay at home, when we read, see and hear news about the rainforest being lumbered or hundreds of thousands of people being killed in Sudan, Dafur.

But I think that's not solely a German issue, but rather an issue, that every human being shares. We only care about the stuff in front of our house. That is sad. Africa and the Brazilian Rainforest is too far away for most of the people. If that doesn't change, we won't be able to solve the real big issues, that are raising on the horizon.

Good luck human race!
