This is as true for us as it is for Germany, and rest of Europe as well. And until we recognize that fact, desperate people are going to be susceptible to the simplistic propaganda of various reactionary players; most particularly Puten's form of Criminal Capitalism Inc., which will certainly try to inflame things along the usual, incorrect lines of race, religion, or whatever other supposed stupid differences.
This is the very thing that allows other vested interests to pit working people against each other, all the while the limited few, who control the major reins of economic power, have their cake, our cake, and and get to eat it all as well. And until the rest of us recognize that fact working people are going to remain easy prey to these outside efforts to inflame people's passions in the wrong way.
