    Solidarity program...

     

    This is my pet law which I hope someday the Bundestag will pass:

    A. All nationals of foreign countries who apply for German citizenship, and either look German or can verify at least 50% ancestry from the current countries of the EU, acquire it upon request irrespective of language skills;
    B. and the immigrants, after a period of 8 years of residence in Germany, are to be granted a full waiver of foreign debts acquired for educational purposes, and the protection of German law from foreign creditors;
    C. and should the sovereign power of Germany to combat the activities of abusive foreign creditors prove insufficient to nullify the debts their debts would be assumed by the German government.
    C. Foreign nationals cannot exceed 39 years of age to qualify for this solidarity and debt forgiveness program.

    It is not inconceivable that such a law could be passed too, considering the labor shortages we have in Germany. Wages will be rising rapidly going forward, which add a further inducement to immigrants even without such a program.

    Countries that do not offer free university would be hard pressed to compete with attractive power of this solidarity program. It would be relatively straightforward for foreign governments to match the program: just tax all their low achievers, and reprobates to pay for free university. Politically this would be difficult for some countries whose base of support is those very low achievers and reprobates.
