Collage: Olaf Scholz, ny revolutionerende kansler

Onsdag blev Socialdemokraten Olaf Scholz taget i ed som Tysklands nye kansler, leder af den såkaldte ‘ampel’-koalition. Som ung var han aktiv i Jusos, SPD’s venstreradikale ungdomsgrupper, og som dedikeret marxist mødte han i 1984 DDR-leder Egon Krentz i DDR. I 1987 var han som Jusos-næstformand atter i DDR, og demonstrerede her med Freie Deutsche Jugend. Samme kommunistiske organisation, som Merkel var en del af nogle år tidligere.

Med Olaf Scholz ved roret er der ‘lagt op til en revolution’, lød det fra Weekendavisens Jesper Vind i seneste udgave af Genau (Radio4). Han henviste til bogen ‘Hoffnungsland: Eine neue deutsche Wirklichkeit’ (2017), hvori Scholz fremlagde hans vision for fremtidens Tyskland. En fremtid med ‘massiv øget indvandring’, og ‘flere hundrede tusinder ekstra indvandrere om året’.

Mere fart på befolkningsudskiftningen, fri hash og stemmeret til 16-årige. Mere om fremtidens Tyskland hos The Local – Climate, weed and citizenship : The new German government’s roadmap.

“The centre-left-led alliance forming Germany’s next government has declared ambitions to make the Bundesrepublik greener and fairer. In their coalition agreement, the Social Democrats (SPD), the Greens and the liberal FDP addressed issues from climate protection to foreign policy to cannabis.

As the German parliament gets ready to formally elect the SPD’s Olaf Scholz as chancellor on Wednesday, here are the main points of the new coalition’s roadmap.

The three-party combo also agreed to lower the voting age to 16 – something likely to favour the Greens and FDP which have younger supporters than Angela Merkel’s conservatives (CDU/CSU), who are largely backed by Germany’s army of pensioners. …

Germany’s incoming coalition is much more immigration friendly than the outgoing government led by Merkel’s conservatives. The coalition parties want to overhaul and modernise the immigration system, with promises to ’simplify the path to German citizenship’.

In their initial agreement, they said the plans are to allow for ‘multiple citizenships’ – which is music to the ears of many foreigners in the Bundesrepublik. The existing rules require that most non-EU citizens have to give up their other citizenship if they want to become German. …

Recreational use of cannabis will be legalised under the new government.”
