Berlins school system is designated as the worst of all school systems in the 16 German countries (which is too bad anyway).

- up to 40 students per class
- poor, violent or unassimilated children
- too old rooms in subterranean condition
- unexperienced or unsuitable teachers (and too few)
- much to little investments overall

Would be not so relevant, if Germany wouldn't have the worst conditions for private schools. Fewest share of and mostly run by katholic or lutheran church. Sucks as parents.

Wow Berlin schools are the worst in the country. So the worst of the worst. Germany's education system is a joke. All it teaches kids is to pretend everything is difficult because it's GERMAN. Too bad they don't even do real trigonometry and BARELY cover calculus. Even then it's only the easiest problems possible. No wonder all my classmates at university in Germany had so much trouble passing exams. The school system in Germany coddles German kids. If you have a foreign last name then RIP.

Let's take a glance on the Bundestagswahl polls:
Right parties:
AfD 6.5 % / CDU CSU 40 % / FDP 10.5 % = 57 % for right parties
Left parties:
SPD 24 % / Greens 7 % / Lefts 8.5 % = 39.5 % for left parties
3.5 % for other parties

And there I found another reason to hate Germany:

Why is there even a 5 % barrier to the parties?

Most people don't care unless you left bragging you were going to "make it" big in Berlin. I don't think many people have the perception that Berlin is the city where people go to become top in their field or rich, unlike London or New York.

Never forget the city is still full of stasi spooks. Even if they aren't active anymore, old habits die hard. Something like 1 in 8 East Berliners were traitors to their own people. Psychological warfare was always present. Zersetzung was the norm. These peoplea are now small-scale agitators, but cause problems nonetheless. They are to blame for the real lack of diversity of opinions.

Berlin is a city with a really high stress level. If you plan to go a few districts farer than you have to prepare for the extreme overcrowdedness.
Its very chaotic and you can never feel yourself safe. Because you know, these people are not ruthful, not polite, and when you are unlucky, they even offend you. The athmosphere is rather foeshiply and loaded with aggression. If you stumble or so, nobody will help you up, you rather get kicked instead. That leads to a constant level of danger on the streets and raised stresslevel of everyone. If you walk on the streets youll be stared as if youre from another planet and as if you have nothing in comin with the human race. You simple cannot go out for a nice relaxed walk, because it is not nice nor relaxed. When you plan to go to the other side of the city, prepare for a dangerous and annoying expedition full of dangers. The trains are extremely overheated and if heat is not good for your health than youll have a hard time. Its no fun for some people to stand in extremely overcrowded trains, involuntary group snuggeling and body contact. Not all people are totally enjoing this. Sometimes i went out being really happy and in a good mood and on the way it seemed that the city and its people sucked out every good feelings and replaced them with bad ones, like dementors in harry pothead. People will look you all over and will see all your imperfections, and all of this is a reason to despise you. Even if you look good, they will show you that you look not good enough to be a valuable person. And then woman. Some have a grin all the time, but in that smile is no little niceness at all, more a spiteful one. When you face them theyll make grimaces, like they wanna say: "Your poop and im the most precous beeing of the universe" or something like that.
I started now to listen to bad blackmetal when im out, beacause it is like homeopathy for all these situations.
I know its no good kind of life here, the city creates lots junkies, drunks and sick people. The downward swirl is enormous. Please dont let them suck you out. Sometimes its better not to search luck in the streets, or to spend to much time in overcrowded places.

Berlin is a city with a "high stress" level only if you had previously lived in a small town. Compared to Paris, London, etc. Berlin is rather a village itself, or rather a collection of villages. However I do agree with some of your observations, there is indeed not much positive unconditioned public interaction, just for the sake of being nice.

I think he's right. The city is full of forced stress. The kind of superficial conflict that would be the equivalent of the "fake American kindness" the Germans so deeply despise. People in this city always do seem to be in a hurry, pushing and shoving and invading your personal space. Standing on your heels in every supermarket, post office, ticket counter and shop. And they're always so passive aggressive. Don't have exact change? Expect eye rolls and audible sighs. Can't get your groceries in the bag fast enough at the checkout? Cold stares and head shakes. I've witnessed many people physically assaulted in this city for walking too slow, not opening doors fast enough, needing to use handrails when ascending staircases, having to ask for directions. And to the locals it's endearing. Being greeted by the level of contempt one could only muster up if you were either born with a chip the size of Berlin on your shoulder or were constantly always looking for extravagant hyperbolic rage. All this, the very essence of the Berliner Schnauze, is the result of mistaking negativity for intelligence. It's the false conclusion that the natural state of man is abject degeneracy. It's the social conditioning that being down-trodden, unhappy and unable to enjoy life is superior to healthy emotional intelligence. And it's all compounded by poorly engineered infrastructure, outdated technology, neo-ludditism and schizoid-paranoid behavior so rampant in this city. Berliners pride themselves on being authentic, genuine, real. Unfortunately for them, any intelligent human being can see that this anger, angst and rudeness are all carefully contrived coping mechanisms for children who will never grow up.

Wow!! This is what I have started doing as well. I never listened much to it but here it just seemed like a natural thing to do. I always make sure to put "aggressive music" on my mp3 player before I go out.

The bad thing about it is that I might seem like one of those aggressive turds as well. I also usually go out and feel good and after a few meters I start to feel like shit. I remember a few occasions where I went out with people to celebrate, got a bit drunk, and ended up lost and alone crying somewhere, ignored by people around me.

When I went to my home town for a visit at the checkout in stores people started friendly conversations with me in line, here everybody has a grump face and people, especially cashiers, are usually rude - probably because they deal with so much poop during the day.

I do experience random acts of kindness even here, and I try to be kind and smile at people whenever I can and it's not suffocated yet for the day, but usually it gets ignored :)

"Sometimes its better not to search luck in the streets, or to spend to much time in overcrowded places."

This. I feel best when I downright avoid it. I find streets without many people and more nature, I avoid the crowded places. Makes me unhappy anyway, and they are usually ugly, too, The places, I mean.

Before I visited Berlin the first time my grandmother told my parents not to let me go. She said she was here in the 50's or 60's and that the place was a dump: broken beer bottles in the streets, used condoms in the gutters, vomit and urine everywhere. Cranky, drunk, rude people. I thought to myself that must've been just the worn down vets and war widows. But really nothing has changed. City is still filthy. People are still rude. Berlin is a joke.

Wow can't believe I found this site after googling "Berlin sucks"! I moved to Berlin a few months ago and find this place to be a bit like a hell on earth. I mean, probably there are worse places to live but nowhere else have I found the people so sick emotionally. There is so much pathology you can see everywhere. Drug addicts, young people begging, people being rude and fighting for their own little space in this maddness. The people I met here are often very insensitive - they are actually unhappy and stressed but they stay in unhealthy situations instead of changing them. They are tough on themselves and don't treat themselves nicely and so they are to other people - tough, agressive, cold. And no wonder they are feeling stressed and unhappy - it's a typical big city where everywhere you go it's dirty, crowded, noisy. It's hard to make genuine human connections as no one has time. I am thinking people who choose to stay here must really not know that life quality is better in different places. I lived before in a different German city - didn't like the German mentality there but the life quality was very high. I thought I can find the same plus more international spirit in Berlin. Yes, it is international, but for me life quality here is pretty low. To be honest though I don't find it so very german here - it is like a completely different country! The Germans from outside are boring and tense but usually very kind people. Here you find very few of those type, most are just crazy, stressed out and rude. The fact that so many people take drugs, smoke and drink also speaks for how stressed they are and how they don't find other ways to cope. I think people who choose to stay here are crazy as there are other places that are nicer, cheaper and with more jobs.

Why are leftists so prone to child abuse, molestation and worse? Could this be the real reason politicians are afraid to go after the thugs in Rigaer Strasse? The Green Party in Germany is well known for it's "experiments" in child sexuality all the way up until at least the 80's, probably also thereafter. What is wrong with leftists' brains that they think abusing children is acceptable?

GERMANS ARE HEARTLESS UNEMOTIONAL ROBOTS:

I wasn't feeling well earlier on the ubahn. U2 line. I lie down on one of the benches (first station) for a few minutes. Suddenly, have a woman ask me (in German, then broken English) if I was "okay or needed a doctor." I say "no thank you, I'm fine" (just very dizzy) and then she waits for me to sit up even though I feel as if I'm going to puke.

Second instance: I get off a few stations later because I need to lie down again ASAP. Olympia station, so prettty empty. I lie down once more and a few minutes later, two controllers come over. They ask if I'm okay and not feeling in the right mind to even think in German, I give a similar answer as the previous time (in English) they start to laugh and walk away.

Evil soulless people, these Germans. Even when you think they are being nice, it isn't coming out of a place of genuine concern, but out of PURE NOISINESS AND NEED TO KNOW WHY SOMEONE IS NOT IN ROBOT FORMATION AT ALL TIMES. Coming from NYC, it's been a complete culture shock dealing with these people, which is why I still haven't bothered to study their language seriously (I'm currently swamped with finals, but still my fault, I know).

Anyone else know why this culture behaves this way? Most German students are also the laziest (no drive compared to their foreign counterparts) and quite rude to professors. The most hard working people in the EU? LOL LOL LOL I've never met a more lazy and depressed bunch.

It's true. Germans are rude. Especially in Berlin. They see you lying down somewhere and assume you are drugged out or really drunk. German students are lazy, that is also true. They also cheat every chance they get at exams. At a real university you would get kicked out if you are caught cheating, but in Germany you just fail the exam and have to retake it later. No disciplinary action is taken. It is ridiculous. But what is worse: since living here I have noticed that Germans love to exaggerate all of their accomplishments. They know their education system is a joke but they will publicly pretend it was really hard and that they had to study all the time. Also, at work they really pretend that their jobs are super important and that they have to work so hard but most of them spend half the day reading Bild.de and the other half drinking coffee and looking at facebook. Most jobs here are a joke. Also: most Germans are also racist. If you infiltrate their groups and make friendly with them long enough they will confide with you that they actually do hate certain foreigners.
Finally, my advice to you is not to learn German unless you really need to for some reason, like you are studying in German or you need a job where you'll speak German. You'll just be disappointed in the things people say. It's better not understanding the slobs in this city. That is fact.
