Yep, but I like the provocation here - for posting this clip I lost at least 4 subscribers, one of whom felt the need to comment at length about how Arabs are replacing "We Germans". I am arguing with him in the comment section of the clip above about the relative value of distinguishing by ethnicity vs. culture.

That stuff is too deep to discuss with text comments IMO.

I live dangerously, and so far what I'm finding is that those who croon about pride for their ethnic heritage haven't thought about it very deeply. It seems as well thought through as cheering for your city's football team because it's the city you live in or grew up in.

One of the best explanations of tribalism I've seen is this (15:55):

(basically it's part of our DNA)

In order to make the statement of your headline "true" one would have to assume that all europeans can be stereotyped and generally think the same way the twat does who wrote the letter, although for example the latest french, german and also british elections should have told them differently. But of course we are not THAT interested in europe, are we.

 

Whoever is proud of something they did not achieve is an idiot. This of course includes ethnicity, nationality (for most) and religion (again most) and so on and so forth.

 

Nationality and religion can actually be changed by a person and thus those who do this could be proud of what they did (regardless of what others think).

 

I have to renew my passport soon so I will have to think about whether I apply for spanish nationality or will re-apply for my german passport and ID. One will involve flying around spain and maybe even going to germany. The decision will be based on "the path of the least resistance".
