nobody cares and neither should you
no, germans shouldn't have national pride
I think that people who argue Germans shouldn't be proud of their country are naive about the atrocities their ancestors in their own country carried out in the past.
my turkish friend is very proud to be german idk
Don't let anyone guilt trip you over something as important as your heritage.
yes? if ur country isn't shit then be proud of it no matter the history
I'm a proud german and no one can anything about it. Greatest country in the world.
I am glad to live in germany, I dont know if that counts as pride.
But I don't take pride in stuff that I didnt achieve, I got lucky in being born here.
The question isn't "should you be proud of being German?" but rather "what about being German makes you proud?" and "what does your pride entail?"
It is better to be proud of 70 years of German peace and reconciliation than it is to be proud of 300 years of British Imperial dominance
u definitely should have national pride as one of the greatest nation in history, but yeah, imo u jermens do everything to discredit urself as a nation past few decades
We should put German flags everywhere and be proud of being German.
I personally feel like national pride has never been that strong in germany historically. At least not compared to other nations. You have to remember that germany used to be scattering of hundreds of small areas, with many cultural differences. The only thing similar was the language. The whole identity part of the unified germany thing was mostly fabricated. I personally don't feel more connected to people from eastern germany or the Ruhr-area than I would feel to other europeans.
I don't really get the "proud of your country" thing.
I mean I am proud of things I acchieved. But why shouldI feel pride for the fact that I am born in a certain country? That's hardly anything I worked for.
never got the point of being overly proud for where I live and where I'm from. Its not an accomplishment/achievement to be born in a country, it's a random factor you couldn't decide.
For me being a german doesn't mean anything at all to me.
Nowadays beside the history there's not much to be proud of except strong economy and maybe football
There always are people putting flags out or on their car during the WC, the Greens are furious each time, but that`s part of the charm
Lol be proud to be a german fuck the left donkeys that think otherwise.
Am i supposed to be sorry for fucking slavery (some people and party's actually are lmao)
I think national pride is stupid regardless of your country. You didn't choose to be born in your country, maybe you had a lucky spawn, so be it, but don't boast with it.
well you have some good engineering stuff, you can be proud of that.
still volvo cars bestest
idk just embrace the prussian flag back
Germany is a great country, you should be proud of being German despite every bad thing. I doubt that people just hang out flags randomly in other countries. Never seen it here.
A true fan supports something through high and low. Be proud of your heritage. Viva la Republik!
It's not your fault someone 70-100 years ago did some attrocities, I think it's retarded to take responsibility for any of that.
if you think your country is achieving now great things then feel proud if its not then just simply don`t feel proud. Don`t let history make your decisions about whats happening now. Being aware of what happened in history is good but it no longer matters because in this case it hardly leads to repeating mistakes.
Don't worry, m8, in Russia we are not proud of our country either. Patriotism is dead, and the bulk of the so-called 'Ura-patrioty' are just a bunch of brainwashed people who don't want to see the obvious.
u actually went downhilll big time. from strongest and most feared warriors in the old age, now u become hipster without any respect for the self. only few have germanic genes , its sad
National pride is for idiots, no matter where you are from.
theres no pride here, at least where i live germans dont stick together. have a fight with 1 turk, rus or refugee and there will be 100 in front of your house in no time but have a fight with a german and he either wont show up or be alone.
also people often confuse national pride or patriotism with racism here. i dont know who brainwashed us germans but they did a good job. most likely the media so smth like 1939 never happens again
Im proud of the German Wehrmacht
National pride in Germany is somethig that historically wasnt very strong expect 1813. There has never been a founding myth like in France or GB which resulted in a lack of national pride throughout decades. In the Reich (1873-1918) they searched and found a way to show their pride by having a militarized standard of living. In the Third Reich they defined their national pride by nationallism and antisemitism bc it was something most of the prople shared.
But personally iam really proud of my country culture and especially of people in music and literature in the past. And I think almost everyone should be proud of that
Germans have a lot to be proud of, but of course your countrys history is an issue, which is why people are apprehensive of showing "too much" national pride.
germans used to be feared alpha males tbh, won so many wars.
now all there is left is immigrants, lgbts and soyboys.
probably to scared of being called nazi's if they act like proud germans.
if u look most right wing or neo nazi's there is a lot of proud in them when it comes to their country
Germans are too smart too even care about this these days.
i stopped thinking about this at some point and now im not really proud of being german, cause you always get hated for that.
i started calling my self a proud bavarian and nobody EVER had a problem with that so....
as if nation is still relevant in eu
Dont you have a national day or smth?
Why should I care or be proud of being German or any other nationality? I can be proud of things I do and achieve.
Being born in a rich and safe country is just lucky. It's what we all do with the headstart that matters in the end. Same goes for the bad parts of Germany's history. Can't do anything about it but try to help shit like that never happens again.
I recommend you watch anime called Attack on Titan. Crimes done by previous generations is a big theme there.
No, after 2014 incident everyone should be ashamed
I've never seen people usually hanging their flag in other countries either
Be a proud citizen of planet Earth :)
Aside from the US and a few other dumb countries/people "national pride" isn't really a thing.. you were born in that country? Wohoo... good for you...
Well, nationalism is dangerous. You should be proud of your country of course, if you feel that way.
Personally, I think that in 21st century we shouldn't really have tribal feelings anymore. I don't care if someone is English, Bulgarian or Russian, people is people. Countries have their purpose to serve citizens who return something in taxes and other obligations, it's contract.
Countries also dangerous tool in geopolitical battle for resources fought by individuals and multi companies, not countries. Citizens who have national pride are far more prone to go in battle for other interests then others, thinking that they are defending national pride, borders, etc. All in all, every war is fought for some individuals to be richer. I think we should be smarter then that.
Then split to little regions as it was before forming Germany
i mean cmon russians did holodomor, turks did armenian genocide 1915, belgians did congo genocide, china is doing uyghur genocide right as i type. The reason why many germans have guilt is because they lost a war meanwhile doing that. The countries that i mentioned didn't lose wars meanwhile doing that (ok maybe turkey did). History is written by the winners.
the world already has experienced ur national pride 2 times in 1914 and 1939,
fuck off jermans
no one should be proud of being part of a nation
everyone should be proud of the nation's achievements tho
We lost 2 wars, commit genocide and were rebuild by the Americans so not too much to have pride in
There was a man born in 1889 April 20.
You should be proud of him.
Or ashamed, depending on your views xddd
mayb to scared of being called nazis? like already being nationalist or proud of your country makes u a nazi and rightwing person.
The thing I dont understand is why germans dont have pride in their heritage before the 1900's. Surely enough, in WW2 the nazis commited unspokable atrocities, but so did every other country. With that logic, the nazi flag should be treated with the same hatred as the soviet flag and the chinese communist flag but it sure is not... All and all, yeah you shouldnt be proud of WW1-WW2 history besides a few specific things (advances in science for instance.) But theres no reason to not be proud of germany before the 1900's.
You jermens once in 20 century had a big dream and you could have done it, but instead you made a terrible mistake and started a war with russians, so no more pride for you sorry especially now when your country not so german anymore with that "wonderful" migration policy from your government, sad that in couple of generations Europe will become Ethiopia
national pride just 4 peopple who can't be proud about their own achievements
It will all be forgotten after WW3. Then Russia will be the main culprit.
