DIE FREIHEIT, the new German civil-rights party, was founded in Berlin in October 2010 and already has approximately 2,000 members throughout the entire country. This extraordinary growth is not a coincidence, rather the logical consequence of current political developments in Germany. The established parties can hardly be distinguished from each other based on content, and political decisions are made far too often against the will and interests of many citizens.
DIE FREIHEIT steps up to become the necessary corrective means against the political aberrations of the past decades. DIE FREIHEIT unites former members of all large parties as well as numerous people who never were active in politics before. All of them share the fear that the current policy of ignoring citizens’ will, of turning a blind eye to serious social problems, of incurring escalating debt, and last but not least, that all of this within the framework of a wrongly constructed European Union could ultimately jeopardize prosperity, liberty and even peace in Germany and Europe.
DIE FREIHEIT offers citizens an eligible alternative to the standard opinion of established parties. DIE FREIHEIT represents a policy of reason, self-determination and performance aspiration. DIE FREIHEIT demands more democracy through referendums and citizen’s participation. And DIE FREIHEIT stands for a sophisticated, self-confident and wealthy German republic alongside its faithful long-term allies in the Western World: in Europe, America and Israel (Jerusalem Declaration).
DIE FREIHEIT pledges itself to those values, which founded the success of the Federal Republic of Germany and stands sincere, courageous and reliable against all forces, which threaten this success.
