50 Jahre nach dem Beginn der Einwanderung bekommt Deutschland jetzt ein #Integrationsgesetz.
Einzelheiten wurden zunächst nicht bekannt. Innenminister de Maizière hatte kürzlich einen Vorschlag vorgelegt, nachdem Flüchtlinge, die Integrationskurse verweigern und Arbeitsangebote ausschlagen, mit Sanktionen belegt werden können. In einem Integrationsgesetz dürfte es auch um Wohnsitzauflagen für Flüchtlinge gehen.

Workers or Shirkers? Ian Hislop's Victorian Benefits
An entertaining, provocative film in which Ian explores the colourful history behind one of the most explosive issues of our times - welfare: who deserves to be helped, and who doesn't. [... ] all hate, no heart. just spreadsheets. at Whitehall, no 11. [...] Benefit Street = victorian freak show/circus of curiosities [...] writing about others, "othering" them. demonising them or putting them on pedestals, making them saints. [...] IDS "a single mother wo aspiration is a product of the system" would correct that, a product of her environment (society) [ie gentrification - poor living w poor door to door. and everyone is looking down on them.].

Piketty: EU should welcome one million immigrants a year
"The European Union has the capacity to absorb a large flow of migrants, one million per year in terms of inflow net of outflow," he said.
"This is exactly what we had between 2000 and 2010 and this was working in the sense that unemployment was being reduced.
"The problem is - with the austerity policies and with the recession - now we are in a situation where it's very difficult in particular with southern Europe, with the terrible economic situation that we have created there in particular." [...] The population of the EU has only risen by 0.2% a year since 1995, he argues, compared to 1.2% for the world's population over the same period.
According to Eurostat, the official statistical arm of the European Commission, a total of 3.4 million people came to the EU during 2013. Some 2.8 million left, leaving a net immigration figure of around 600,000. [S]low growth [...] exacerbated not just by a lack of immigration but also by austerity policies aimed at reducing public expenditure. [EU in recession 2011 forward]

Germany wants refugees to integrate or lose residency rights
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said he is planning a new law that will require refugees to learn German and integrate into society, or else lose their permanent right of residence.

The initiative comes after voters punished Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives in regional elections earlier this month, giving a thumbs-down to her open-door refugee policy and turning in droves to the anti-immigrant party Alternative for Germany (AfD).

IS in Europe: The race to the death
The BBC's Panorama programme has seen the transcripts of some important interrogations carried out by France's equivalent of MI5, the DGSI. They reveal valuable details about the tactics used by Abaaoud to train and equip IS fighters in Europe. [...] Nicolas Moreau was one them. He was arrested in 2015 having left Nantes to fight jihad in Syria in 2014.
He, like many IS recruits, was a former petty criminal who had converted to Islam in prison and become disillusioned with life in France.
He told his interrogators he couldn't stand the "injustice" and "couldn't see any future in this country".
He went on to provide valuable information about IS's external operations department known as Amni, meaning "security", that sends hand-picked trained fighters back to Europe to inflict death and destruction on their homelands.
"Each gets 50,000 euros (£40,000) to mount an attack," Moreau said.

'Do not come to Europe', Donald Tusk warns economic migrants | World news | The Guardian
'Do not come to Europe', Donald Tusk warns economic migrants. After meeting with Greek PM in Athens, president of European council issues warning to would-be migrants [...] Last year the EU and Turkey signed a deal in which Europe offered to spend €3bn on helping some of the 2.5 million refugees in Turkey in exchange for help in reducing numbers travelling to Europe and reviving Turkey’s long-stalled EU membership talks. But Europe has expressed impatience with the continued high number of people making the perilous crossing over the Aegean Sea. Turkey has been unimpressed with the many weeks it took Europe to find the money, which has yet to translate into projects on the ground. [...] EU authorities in Brussels echo Greece’s calls for a European-wide approach, but have proved powerless to stop unilateral decisions by member states. Since September 2015, eight countries in Europe’s passport-free Schengen zone have reintroduced border controls.

Why Hillary Clinton’s ‘super-predator’ concession is such a big moment for political protest - The Washington Post
Clinton’s 1996 speech included some language about these so-called super-predators implying that they were a generation of guilt- and compassion-free sociopaths who, in the interest of society, simply had to be contained. [...] Clinton seemed audibly and visibly irritated, saying she would answer if allowed to speak and then, even more notably, “that no one had ever asked her that before.” Then, Clinton essentially moved on with her regularly scheduled fundraising program. There was no accounting, partial or full, for her 1996 position nor how she arrived at her 2016 stance on criminal justice reform. Moving on. [...] Clinton decided to offer an apology for using that “super-predator” and “brought to heel” language. In the 1990s both were part of a relatively popular but now largely discredited theory about rising youth crime. [ tough on crime was] effective tactic with white voters, because in the [US] there are a whole host of persistent stereotypes abt race & criminality.

Mass EU migration into Britain is actually good news for UK economy | UK news | The Guardian
[ symptom! offer of Brexit vote was election move out of fear, UKIP gains ] Far from the unfounded headlines about EU migrants grabbing British jobs, record numbers of British citizens are in work too [...] the quarterly labour market survey – showed that record numbers of British citizens were in work too. Indeed, 1 million more Britons are in work and 850,000 more Europeans are working in Britain since David Cameron became prime minister. [...] Britain should not be seen as a sudden, recent mass invasion to be necessarily feared by every British worker. It is now a fact of life that Britain has been a country of net mass migration every year for the past 20 years. [...] European migrants are not a drain on Britain’s finances; what is more, they actually pay in more in taxes than they take out in state benefits. [...] [60%] are now university graduates [...] For eastern Europeans, 25% are graduates – similar to the proportion in the UK-born workforce. [ below Germany levels? ]

Long hours, endless admin and angry parents – why schools just can’t get the teachers | Education | The Guardian
British schools are reporting a classroom crisis, with thousands of disaffected teachers leaving the profession, and new graduates discouraged from training because of the daily stress and grind. And with the number of state school pupils set to rise by a million by 2022, the problem is only getting worse [...] If somebody had said, ‘You can have 60 grand a year to stay,’ I would still have said no // Education secretary Nicky Morgan. // [...] Some of the factors behind stories like these are traceable to the New Labour years, but many are rooted in Michael Gove’s hyperactive four-year reign as education secretary. They go from never-ending paperwork, to a constantly changing regime of exams and assessments. Meanwhile, the prospect of a visit from Ofsted and the possibility of a bad inspection are a constant source of stress – not least because a “requires improvement” or the dread “inadequate” rating will mean even more upheaval.

Hungarian PM says UK must alter tax credits plan for EU citizens | Politics | The Guardian
In a sign of the strength of feeling in eastern and central Europe over the proposed ban, Viktor Orbán said Hungarians should not be described as migrants anywhere in the EU, and said Cameron’s EU reform proposals must not be discriminatory. Orbán made his remarks at an upbeat press conference with his British counterpart in Budapest, in which he said he agreed with three out of the four reform proposals that Britain has tabled. His only disagreement is over the plan to ban EU workers from claiming in-work benefits for four years.

Young people are being squeezed out of sport because a third live in poverty and the cost of taking part is too high, according to a study. [...] Low incomes and debt problems mean even small additional costs are unaffordable, it adds. School sport is often free or very low cost, but this provision ends when young people leave school, says the report. In addition, teenagers are often wary of taking up informal, low-cost sporting activities, fearing anti-social behaviour and poor supervision of open spaces. "It was eye-opening to learn just how much joining in matters to young people, how much informal games, outdoor activity and sport can inspire and motivate them, yet how many children and young people are held back from actively getting involved," said author, Prof Anne Power.

We should do God, says report into religion in public life - BBC News
"We don't do God," as Tony Blair's spin doctor Alastair Campbell famously told an interviewer wishing to inquire further about the then prime minister's Christian faith. But according to a report published today, we urgently need to do God - or rather, as a nation, we need to understand religion and belief much better as a driving force within societies across the world, in order to deal with its impact at home. Here, the decrease in mainstream Christianity and the growth of minority religions are raising questions about national identity (what does it mean to be British today?) and how we can live together and accommodate difference peacefully and cohesively, balancing each other's freedoms and rights. [...] Identity anxiety [ << symptom of crony capitalism and inequality and unrechtsstaat ]

Becoming radicalised – and keeping a secret - BBC News
Some of these individuals identified with an organisation such as IS or al-Qaeda while others followed their own extremist beliefs and underwent a more personal form of radicalisation. [...] Still in many cases individuals are drawn to IS or other extremist groups because they're unhappy in their own lives and are looking for a cause that's bigger than themselves. "The radicalisation process has been triggered by a personal crisis - the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job," says Indiana State University's Mark Hamm, the author of The Spectacular Few, a book about extremism. "Typically there's somebody in cyberspace who shows them a way - walks them from the brink of a cliff." // brutality of society at large. enabled by forces and pillars capitalism. ie your worth as a person is defined by your net work and credit score. what education you have (thus family). //&! bit.ly/1N9qQfa

Europa: Arme und weniger gebildete Menschen sterben häufiger an Alkohol - SPIEGEL ONLINE
In den meisten europäischen Ländern leben gebildete und wohlhabende Menschen länger als Menschen mit niedrigem sozioökonomischem Status. Ein Grund für diesen Unterschied scheint im Alkoholkonsum zu liegen. [...] Sozial besser gestellte Menschen trinken demnach zwar häufiger und zum Teil auch mehr als Menschen mit geringerem Bildungsgrad. Laut den Forschern sind problematische Trinkgewohnheiten - etwa das Komasaufen - in unteren sozialen Gruppen jedoch weiter verbreitet. Verhalten wie dieses steigert die alkoholbedingten Gesundheitsprobleme. [...] Ungleichheit zwischen den sozialen Gruppen verstärkt.

Terror: Wer sind "die", wer sind "wir"? - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Worthülse "unsere Werte" [ trotztem bleibt es, jeder fuer sich ] "Unsere Werte", diese Wendung ist derzeit äußerst beliebt - und gefährlich. Denn sie suggeriert Einigkeit, wo keine ist. Das muss und darf nicht so bleiben. [...] "Unsere Werte". Diese Wendung ist seit den Anschlägen en vogue. "Wir geben unsere Werte nicht auf", schrieb die "Frankfurter Rundschau" und änderte die Überschrift später in "Die Freiheit nicht aufgeben". "Wir werden unsere Werte verteidigen!", formulierte "Der Westen", als würden die Redakteure gleich einen halben Tag frei machen, um selbst zu den Waffen zu greifen. //&!
