Dr. Sahra Wagenknecht, MdB

Why we need more cohesion and a sense of community again

Warum wir wieder mehr Zusammenhalt und Gemeinsinn brauchen

Political concepts for social cohesion are falling by the wayside, just like low-earning women, poor immigrant children, exploited temporary workers and large sections of the middle class. Whether in the U.S. or Europe, those who focus on gender asterisks instead of equal opportunity and neglect the culture and sense of belonging of the majority of the population are working into the hands of the political right. Sahra Wagenknecht draws an alternative to a left-wing liberalism that imagines itself progressive but continues to divide society because it is only interested in its own milieu and ignores discrimination based on social origin. She develops a program with which left-wing politics can regain majority support.

Dr. Sahra Wagenknecht, MdB
