Is it just me or youth unemployment is like super high in Berlin. I lived in France for a while and there it was high as well like 25% of all youth population but in Berlin that number feels much higher. I mean that is something you cannot blame on immigrants, it looks like the unemployment is part of the German society. I would like to hear your input people.

I used to have the theory that Berlin is just Germany's social bin, where all the dreamers, punks and alternatives from villages and towns can move to to do their thing without bothering the more productive members of society, and that's why the rest of Germany is happy to continue to pay for it. If you live in a wg here, and don't have much desire for buying stuff, you don't need to work more than a few evenings a week in a bar, leaving plenty of time to pursue your art or social 'purpose'

Berlin's unemployment rate is about 9%. But about 20% on social welfare of some sort.

Considering that 20% of Berlin's population is on welfare plus 9% that are officially unemployed we get a whooping 30% of unproductive people (of the total population not only youth). That's almost one in three without counting underemployed people. That is staggering, if you ask me, that explains a lot of what is wrong with the city.

This week I've gotten several facebook invitations from "friends" to join an anti-immigrant, anti-foreign political movement (like pegida 2.0). Why do germans invite me to "like" this, don't they realize that these kind of invitations are against people like ME. By the way, this was not meant as a joke, they were a real invitations. That's like asking your foreign friends "Hey, join golden dawn, they are cool guys and they are xenophobic as hell." Seriously Germans WTF.

And once they figure out you in no way subscribe to their broken up views you will be severed from their social circle/work circle and nasty poop will be said behind your back.I experienced this first hand.If you are not with "The group" they come after you.Its like any form of dissent sends them bat poop crazy.Watch your back!

Yes I agree with the comment above. I have no option but to leave that social circle entirely because according to their views if I don't join this party I cannot be part of their group. Nothing of great value was lost but is still annoying to be put in this position of: "it's our way or the highway". At least I am able to create my own opinion and not fall for group thinking like most Berliners do.

To me even as a migrant, pegida makes sense.The Islamisation of Europe is a real future threat to european culture. It is not about race. It is about a religion that is not consistent with European values of freedom.

Falling in love with Berlin is like falling in love with your kidnapper thanks to the Stockholm syndrome. Victimized people feel affiliation with the one who perpetrated the crime. I didn't understand the city until I realized that Berliners like their captor, the one who mistreats them. Because that much mistreatment has to be worth it because the city is great, RIGHT? No wonder why Berliners are so weird in the eyes of almost everyone else in the planet. They're the middle point between PTSD, schizophrenia and paranoia.

I agree with everything you say, but as a therapist I'll have to make clear that they don't fall into any of those three categories, even if the metaphor feels fitting. Besides that, it's not fair for the genuinely mentally ill. I have met brighter people among them than Berliners. But really, one shouldn't joke about the mentally ill. It just intensifies the stigma towards them we already have in our society.

Seriously, what is wrong with Germany. There are places that genuinely look worse than so called third world countries. I never imagined that western Europe would look like scenes from Soviet movies. Forget about the Brandenburg Gate, just walk just a few miles and you will find places that really look like a ghetto.

There is a real problem with Berliners, boundaries. They don't get them. I just saw my roommate folding my underwear because he couldn't handle the sight of my last day clothes on the ground. Which is weird because my roommate is a freaking hoarder. It's fine to hoard useless poop and store it (even in my room) but fine to enter into my room without my permission to fold clothes. I would like to say that's just one case but the truth is that similar things have happened to me in other apartments and at work. God I hate this place.

Alongside the need for them to give advice on personal hygiene, organizational techniques, and anything else they feel superior about while openly and visciously rejecting any attempts for you to reciprocate. Nut cases all of them.

Left Berlin 1.5 years ago -but still get flashbacks and shudder at the prospect of ever returning (I would rather be in Jail then return there)...it is the personification of a city of Oblivion - horrible vibes everywhere, no jobs except for the lucky few (maybe 10%), drug addicts, homeless and crazies everywhere, jobless artists with no prospects (as there is no actual arts industry there....this entire "Berlin is cool" nonsense has run its course - its not cool - its a hellhole with few to 0 possibilities - I would ONLY recommend it if you have a high-paying stable job in place with a company that won't go bust within a year - otherwise you will find yourself going broke and unable to leave whilst surrounded by losers, students who don't live in reality - with a sense that your life is slipping away - while you live in this fake city of lost opportunity.

I had a "high paid job" while I lived there but that doesn't change the fact that the city is still awful. I wouldn't recommend it even if you had a stable high paying job. The city and its people are just crap.
