So, this time lets talk politics. Again. I did this a while ago and i usually try to avoid topics like those (or others like religions) because everyone out there got a different take on it. Everyone thinks something else about e.g. certain politicians or how they should do things. But recently something happened over here that made me write this post right now.
Doesnt really sound like anything new, right? Politicians fail to do stuff all the time. They promise a lot and very often dont deliver. They fail to do good politics and they also often fail to reach that what they should reach so that the world wont go to shit sooner or later. But this time, man… its on a whole other level.
See, in germany they were elections a while ago. Everyone was scared of the right extremist party to gain ground and all that stuff. So people gave their votes and sure, they gained some ground, but not all that much. A warning shot in my opinion, but you could still turn that around by doing something good in the period you were elected for and through that gain the trust of your people back. But nope, that isnt happening. Its the total opposite.
Three different parties tried to create a coalition over here that could govern our country. The CDU (and with that the CSU, the bavarian sister of the CDU), the FDP and the green party. They talked for weeks and weeks and tried to come together in various points that are important these days. Immigrants, Environmental protection, electricity made out of coal, various other stuff. And then last week the FDP announced that they dont want to continue. They were done and dont want to create said coalition. And with that they failed horribly. There are like no really good options left.
They could recreate the former government coalition of CDU/CSU and SPD. No one wants that though. People obviously voted against that at the election and everyone knows that. People would loose so much trust in all parties that are currently involved in politics. If they are actually a part of said coalition or not.
Then theres the option of a minority government. Something that never happened before on a national level. People are surprisingly open to that everywhere around and i personally believe that this wouldnt be the worst option out there. But people are also scared that this could mean that germany as a whole would appear weak to other countries out there. Not that we appear strong right now, but even weaker then right now.
And then theres like one more try to create the coalition of CDU/CSU, FDP and the green party. Although the FDP already said that they wont participate in any further talks.
And thus it seems right now as that the previous coalition of CDU/CSU and SPD will propably be continued. Like i wrote, no one wants that and it will propably mean a few things with high certainity:
- The SPD will be done afterwards. That is pretty much guaranteed. They lost so much with the former coalition with the CDU/CSU, its hard to imagine that they would gain anything this time around.
- The german government would be at a standstill – they didnt do anything the last few years in the same constellation, so why would they start now? After all, Chancelor Merkel would still be in charge aswell. Same people, same parties. No changes.
- The extremist parties, especially those from the right wing, will get so much stronger. They will gain more ground doesnt matter which option will be chosen, i got no doubts about that. But this one will sky-rocket them to the top. They will gain like 20%+ at the next elections if nothing really world-changing will happen until then.
So, its all going to shit it seems. Politics over here usually make fun of other certain presidents out there with blond hair that are prone to twitter usage, but they are no different. They dont use twitter all that much, sure, but they fail just as much. The future looks bad all the same.
