The last weeks I’ve read a lot of people talking about Europe’s gas problem especially Germany. Let me clarify a few things for you:
First of all the basics since most of you don’t know:
Germany is located in the center of Europe. It’s that one place that you’ve probably seen on a map in your history class about world war 2. Yea the one with the cross symbol.
Secondly since we will all freeze like in Russia:
Germany has mild winters. There’s rarely snow in the majority of the country. It’s usually between 0-10C ( ~30-50 Freedom units )
Let’s talk about gas price. Yes it went up. But did you know that even tho we are europoors we actually aren’t THAT poor? It’ll go up for me for example 70€/month. That’s 70$.
And since we talk about money Germany is rank #4 when it comes to GDP. And we also have something called “a social program”
I KNOW! Scary words! But let me explain! In the worst case scenario the government actually cares about the less fortunate and helps them with money. So even if you can’t afford gas you probably will end up getting support and still be able to pay! Sounds ridiculous I know but shit works.
I really appreciate that you care this much about our well being but things are really not looking as bad as some might think. Probably because the last time you heard about a Europe crisis Germany was also a major topic but I promise it’s different this time!
Edit: The meme hit the front page? Time to get the popcorn and sort by controversial lmao
