Since the founding of the Federal Republic of Germany, there have never been so few young people (15 to 24 years) living in Germany, both in absolute terms and proportionally. Brandenburg, with 8 per cent, is even the worst of the already bad German situation.
Birgit Bessin, family policy spokesperson of the AfD parliamentary group in the Brandenburg state parliament, comments on this as follows:
“I am pleased that people are getting older and enjoying their well-deserved retirement – as far as that is still possible at all. For many years we have been warning of poverty in old age, caused by a flawed family policy, which is confirmed by current figures: Brandenburg is at the bottom of the league in terms of the demographic proportion of young people. A sad highlight!
Germany, and Brandenburg in particular, urgently needs an activating family policy. Strong families are not only a source of support and security for the individual, especially in difficult times, but also the backbone of any functioning society.
Instead of defaming family-friendliness as ‘folkish’ and stylising childbearing as an enemy image, it is time to understand that our welfare state can only be maintained with an activating family policy and a child- and family-friendly society and politics instead of allowing many more people to find happiness in our welfare system without justification.
Preserving one’s own people does not imply devaluing another people. But I am very worried about a generation conflict of considerable proportions. We need more children and children’s laughter again. Let’s create the first incentives for young people against the prevailing, family-destroying policies with the ideas of our AfD parliamentary group, such as the budget day for working people, marriage start-up credit, free daycare places, lowering taxes on children’s products, etc. – for more children in Brandenburg!”
