Living in Germany I estimate that between 30% and 40% of the population is against Germany granting asylum to the current refugee wave which is estimated at around 800k for 2015. Yet the media and political parties have obviously made the decision that they are all for it. The only party that seems to question it is the AfD, against which ALL mainstream parties and media are ganging against. What I find absurd,almost kafkaesque, is that in the media the burden is on the people who oppose this massive wave of refugees to prove why it may be such a bad thing, with much demagogy and political rectitude going on. 1% per annum of a country's population (80m) is a huge deal. Common sense would dictate that the status quo be given more weight in such a policy that will have huge permanent consequences on a society. My problem is not even with the refugees. But with the fact that German society is not going to even have a real debate about it. There is such a divergence between the establishment 's rethoric and what people actually want. It's really out of control.
