The Cult of Personal Responsibility

Ads for a campaign to speak German are currently all over Germany.

Migrants are assumed to be too lazy to learn Germany, as is made explicit by one of the “ambassadors”, the TV moderator and model Collien Fernandes in a tabloid interview:

“All you have to do is go to the campaign’s homepage. There’s a great data base and it’s easy to choose a school.” (The site doesn’t work in any language but German.)
