Open Discussion and Dissenting Opinions

In clear contrast to encrusted old politics, the ethos of democracy as well as the sacred fire of free debate must be cultivated with particular care. 

This includes an open and honest culture of discussion. Respect for other opinions, renunciation of prejudices and hate propaganda.

We need more dialogue. Not only with like-minded people in our own “communicative bubble”, but also with those voicing different political views.

Open dialogue is a constituent element of any vibrant de- mocracy and is therefore indispensable.


  1. Let us invite fresh new thinkers and political opponents to open dialogue forums. Let us take much more time to listen, discuss, weigh up and reflect.
  2. International workshops and conferences in the World Economic Forum format test the ability to discuss and create new perspectives.
  3. The party leadership encourages open discussion and demands respect for dissenting opinions.
  4. Let us demand concrete proposals from speakers and politicians instead of endless descriptions of problems.
