Once again I am appalled, embarrassed, frustrated and horrified about the political debates I have been witnessing. The way these men in their bespoke suits strut up to the waiting cameras after another night of negotiating their pole positions in the endless power game (how do they keep awake? speed? cocaine?). Do we in all seriousness want to argue that over 500 million European citizens are unable to cope with two or three million refugees, that we are overstretched? That the burden is too much? It frightens me how politicians treat human beings fleeing from war, political persecution or poverty like annoying flotsam that can be piled up somewhere far away hoping that it will vanish all by itself. Just as long as we don't have to care.
Oh shit. There is no refugee crisis, there is a European irresponsibility crisis.
