“We have to take care of the poorest in our society. We must not only think about getting further, higher or striving for even more wealth. We have to take time and look after this group of people with all our heart! This includes young people, having trouble coping with school, coming from less fortunate backgrounds, being born with fewer chances for a better future in life. Those who then are unable to find work and easily become right wing oriented. The right wing politics offers them an easy and clear view of the world: “This is good, this is bad. This is for us. We take care of you and each other. We don’t have to share with everyone.” This kind of thinking then makes them far right extremists. Currently we’re giving the right-wing thinking too much space. I think that’s because we don’t care enough for the  people living in these quarters, who don’t have work, those who are unable to follow along in school and so on and so on… We have to care more! That, for me, is the most important thing.”
