    Are you proud to be German? Germans on the streets answer.

    I thought about doing something like this myself. I also think it is better that it was done by a friendly-looking woman, as it probably made the people answering less nervous by the question.

    I watched about half of that, and I figured the other half would be about the same.

    I guess there is not much German patriotism within Germany any longer. At least not for the people she interviewed.

    German patriotism is alive and well in my home.

    My guess is that people are a bit scared to make any patriotic statement. The opinion climate in Germany must have become horrible over the years. So I'd be amazed to see any patriotism in a small sample at all.

    Interesting what the German word Stolz (It's also an Afrikaner surname) means:
    From Middle High German stolz, from Old High German stolz, from Proto-Germanic *stultaz (“proud, stately, stiff”), from Proto-Germanic *stil-, *stal-, *stul- (“to be solid, stationary, firm, stiff”), from Proto-Indo-European *stel- (“to put, stand”); cognate with English stout.

    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/stolz
    With other words it means that you'd "take a stand or stand up" for it. That means then that the "You can only be proud (stolz) on your own achievement is nonsense.

    The seemingly common idea in Germany that one can only be proud of one's own "personal achievements" reeks of brainwashing from a very early age. The occupying powers want no collective feeling or awareness to be acknowledged based upon nationhood or the common Germanic identity, so they introduce this narrative instead... that only individualism matters. We are all individuals, and any assertion otherwise is "racist" or "xenophobic," or whatever other stigma they decide to attach to our desire to be an extended family of any sort.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    To be fair, about 50% of them did say that they were proud to be German.

    Generally, low T seemed to correlate with a negative answer and I would have liked the input of more young German men. Was a bit surprised that LGBT looking Uni type answered in the positive.

    That tall girl was virtue signalling hard. Maybe trying to show how "smart" she is by parroting the teachers and the media.

    Being young was considered to make a positive answer both more and less likely, depending on who you asked. Basically, the old mistrust young people no matter what they themselves think.

    Also, people who were alone all answered yes, while people who were in the company of somebody else all answered no.

    If I can’t be proud of my country according to their idea, then I can’t have "German guilt" or "White guilt" either. It's totally hypocritical and ridiculous what one of these 3 girls said. On the one hand she says she can only be proud of her own achievements, but on the other hand she says she's ashamed of what Germany did (supposedly, lol). This has no logic and consistence at all. Either you're proud of your country and identify with it's rights and wrongs. Or you say you're only proud of your own achievements, but then you also can’t feel ashamed of what other people of your nation supposedly did.

    This girl is totally brainwashed, it's disgusting. I want nothing to do with such people. They annoy me and I would get into arguments with them all the time.

    What you say is perfectly logical. It's a shame most people don't use logic in their thought processes. We were discussing this earlier in the chat box. While only about 2% of people are INTJ personality types in the general population, this type accounts for about 50% in nationalist forums. Most others are more or less susceptible to social conditioning, that is, they think with their emotions and are easily manipulated this way. (((The enemy))) knows this. They have studied psychology and weaponized it, using their near monopoly in media and funding of certain programs and groups to do so. The reason they love democracy so much is that they have mastered its manipulation through buying elected officials and brainwashing the general population. It doesn't matter that some cannot be brainwashed... they will just marginalize those people. What matters is that most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Taken to its logical end, you couldn't even be proud of your "own" achievements. None of one's achievements are entirely one's own either because you had various support in your life (parents, siblings, friends, teachers, the state etc).
    Nor could you be proud of your own children. Or be proud of a multi-national sports club, cheer on and idolise musicians or be a fan of a brand or company (lol) etc.

    Being proud of those to whom you're connected by blood, culture and language is still a hundred times more logical than any of these things.
    These people are so blind, it's not even funny. Just be a happy little, decadent, pseudo-individual consumer unit living on 30 sqm, with no believes, history or future and no thoughts of your own.

    It would probably make the interviewer confused if so-and-so responded with being a proud Saxon, Bavarian or Prussian. Just imagine the meltdown if the answer is that of having Germanic pride. Yeah, verboten to maybe prefer English or Dutch friends than Jews or Turks?

    Any particular reason you didn't just say German, again?

    Yeah, verboten to maybe prefer English or Dutch friends than Jews or Turks?
    And what is that supposed to mean?
