Wonderful trend. Let’s hope that this will happen everywhere so that stupid nationalism can finally disappear.
Only 17% of Germans ready to defend their country – survey
Four in ten respondents have said they would never take up arms even to defend their nation
A recent survey conducted by the German market and opinion research institute, Forsa, reveals that many German citizens are hesitant to defend their country with lethal force in the event of potential foreign aggression. According to the poll commissioned by the Stern newspaper, 40% of respondents expressed that they would never take up arms, even in such circumstances.
Only 17% of Germans indicated they would “definitely” be prepared to defend their nation. An additional 19% stated they would “probably” do so in the event of an attack on Germany. Notably, older men demonstrated a higher level of potential readiness, with 39% of male respondents aged between 45 and 59 expressing willingness to join Germany’s defense forces in case of a foreign invasion.
