The federal government messes you around at this moment; not only with the introduction of the useless, dangerous reasonless mass surveillance with the name of Vorratsdatenspeicherung, data storage. Against her own promise Angela Merkel prevents in exactly the same way that the BND selection list of the NSA is submitted to parliament. Read more:

Internet in Germany: You have botched the future

German digital politics is a disaster. And it is your fault. You stand for everything and carry on choosing the same party. As citizens you have failed.

Germany is just less than a digital development country; Germany is a digital failed state. And it is your fault. You, the avarage citizen. Actually the citizens, the electorate, the public are the centre of the media landscape as also of the democracy. People therefore who one should not swear at. But I find it necessary that you grasp your fundamental failure through doing nothing.

It is easy to get angry about evil politics, and that you also do indeed. But it is about substance less moaning because you let no consequences follow your annoyance. You say "One can do nothing!", and then you do nothing. You carry on electing the same party; you do not go on the street; you do not become involved. Your complaint has namely not the aim to change something, but alone serves as outlet: You are an angry citizen minus citizen, and even the anger just seems to be played for reasons of soul hygiene. What concerns the digital sphere you really let everything happen to you:

The federal government messes you around at this moment; not only with the introduction of the useless, dangerous reasonless mass surveillance with the name of Vorratsdatenspeicherung, data storage. Against her own promise Angela Merkel prevents in exactly the same way that the BND selection list of the NSA is submitted to parliament your elected political representation. To say nothing about the publication. Sounds irrelevant and complicated. Except that it is here about that an authority paid by your tax money has helped the NSA to spy on that company for which you work. But you do not worry about that.

And that is the problem. Because actually you should be the driver of the civil society. You are supposed to exert pressure upon politics; you should at least try understanding the social relationships, which have led to this German digital debacle.
