Even though more than four-fifths of voters in Germany cast their vote for freedom and democracy, policy makers tend to focus their attention on the one-fifth that does not want an open society. We want to change that. The normal point of view is that minorities need support. What people need to do now, however, is promote and support society’s majority.
How did we end up in this situation?
It’s the result of lopsided political communication. The topics addressed in the public debate are largely dictated by the political right, by a minority that has managed to take control of the discussion by transgressing social boundaries and using scandal-friendly terminology. This incorrectly leads people to think that the majority is concerned with these issues. We want to counteract this imbalance and give the majority a voice, as paradoxical as that might be.
