The U.K. is already far beyond illiberal, but I can’t see Germany going this way. They’ve long been on the right side of the Internet, and I doubt they’ll have any need to do otherwise anytime soon.

German politicians and lobbyists are continuously pushing year after year. I fear the public losing interest in opposition.

I’m more concerned that most people may never hear or even care about their dwindling online freedoms. I found an article over at https://lobste.rs that drives this point home, if a bit melodramatically: http://motherboard.vice.com/read/pirate-bay-founder-peter-su...

But nah, it's not that there's a large foreign population inside their country without future prospects. Oh wait, that's already happening, thanks to Angela.
