What does it mean to be German – to be European – in a period in which the world order is controlled less and less by the West and by a white minority? The challenges related to immigrant societies and the cultural shifts occurring around the world will result in one single outcome: Europe will have to cope with its decline in status. The end of white supremacy means that the West can no longer impose its definitions of progress, growth or feminism upon others. Pluralistic thinking is what is required for living in a pluralistic world. The far right is profiting from the fears generated by this period of transition, but change will free all of us in the long run.
