Please share your stories of offline political activism here.

I’ve had some interesting political discussions in Germany. They ranged from a cab driver who said he chose German over U.S. citizenship at age 18 because “in America you’re on your own,” to a friend troubled by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement that “multiculturalism is over” and the revival of racism among some German conservative groups. I’ll share more about those and other observations next week when I get back.
