To quote Dieter Hildebrandt - "Censorship is secret recommendation through public prohibition". Also, in the same context I will mention what Trond Andresen, a Norwegian communist, once said: "To "give priority to" is the editorial term for what others call "censorship" ".

As for Germany's laws against "politically incorrect" symbols, opinions and it seems individuals as well, I can remind you all of the famous Roman historian Tacitus' words: "Corruptissima republica plurimae leges" ("The more corrupt the state, the more laws").

As to all their ludicrous claims that what we represent is "evil", I will quote a French writer Anatole France, who said that "Stupidity is far more dangerous than evil, for evil takes a break from time to time, stupidity does not".

Germany under Adolf Hitler burned the books they did not like and sent the "politically incorrect" writers to concentration camps. Germany under the "democratic" banner prohibits "politically incorrect" books, symbols etc, and send these who use those symbols to prison. What is the difference, except that Adolf Hitler's Germany did not claim to be "democratic" of course?

To all those who believe that this is none of their business, since it does not affect them, I will remind them of the Roman slogan "Hodie mihi, cras tibi" ("Me today, you tommorrow"). Who is the next one to be censored? You?
