David, as a german citizen I strongly disagree with you. Please move, perhaps to the former DDR?
There are skin heads yes, like the one who beat that man almost to death. The problem??? The laws
in Germany are so lax, it is almost laughable,
I am ashamed to read when some guy gets 12 years
for a murder. But other than that, you do not like
Germany, plain and simple, LEAVE.

One of the greatest men to ever grace this earth came from Germany,Friedrich W.Nietzsche...A philosopher for all time...A man whos influences did change a lot of thinking.And no he was not a racist,would not have adored the Nazis...A fact that is not well known is that he was of noble blood...And that at one time he was in love with Cosima Wagner...Hail Nietzsche!

Want some real facts about Germany? How about this:

The first mention in recorded history of Germans by the Roman scholars, most notable Tacitus. The German people are the descendants of a people called the Goths,(Goten) who arrived in Middle Europe from their ancient homeland in the Eastern Baltic. They were advanced in their agricultural skills. They were the first people to use oxen,(which they first tamed), for the purpose of drawing their heavy, deep furrowing plow. Thet were the first to understand the concept of a "Biosophere" and the creation of topsoil. Consequently they had constant food surpluses. This made their population grow quite rapidly and so they were constantly looking for new lands to cultuvate and settle. They pressed upon the borders of the Roman Empire starting around 90 AD. They won many battles against Roman legions. Finally, Romae made treaties with some of their tribes and the first German provences on Roman soil were created. After Pagan Roma fell,(475), Germans took over as Christian Roman Emperors. They continued to be famous for their farming skills and soon spread all accross Central Europe. They built the magnificent Gothic cathedrals and finally they invented Movable Type Printing which changed Western History forever. A fantastic age of education and political enlightenment followed. The Germans were the first people in HUman history to acheive over 90 percent literacy, aroud 1900. In 1945, after defeating Germany, the USA had a literacy rate of only about 60%.
