• Germany on the rise song #Achtung #socialjustice

    I love this German "Be Deutsch" song about being tolerant and forward thinking. I love it, because this is the only Germany I know. I was amazed when I arrived in Germany many years ago (I lived there for about three years) that people weren’t just tolerant, they were intolerant of intolerance. In a way only Germans could be. They genuinely had learnt from what had happened in the past. That it wasn't just wrong/never to be repeated, it seamed they set the bar high for social justice and freedom, constantly redefining it and pushing to be more open and more accepting. I genuinely think their society has benefited greatly. That's why I like the song. The irony of "Germany on the Rise", the sort of phrase which seams like it comes from the third Reich, but in this context, means the complete opposite. It's about the rise of the new Germany with social justice at it’s core. The other part of the song Be Deutsch that I love is "proud not to be proud". I'm pretty much of the opinion that National Pride and Patriotism are just forms of bigotry.

Use 23 or even 24 if you really need a low file size, 21 if you are looking for the best mix of quality and low files size (i.e. low file size is important, but not your primary goal).
