now threatens the third world war?

According F.A.S. the paper is the first strategy for civil defense since 1989, ie since the end of the Cold War. The concept was 2012 commissioned by the budget committee of the Bundestag been there and was parallel to the White Paper on the security policy. If you add to take this fact, which admittedly dramatic sounding warnings already work becomes much less threatening.

  • The conception of civil defense was already decided a long time ago &# 8211; It is therefore no urgent and current event, the reason would have to worry.

Hoarding PanicMany Internet users are currently massively confused by the instructions of the government &# 8211; here, these are not a specific warning.

At the moment, the warning is being misused against a theoretical emergency in the network to produce particularly lurid headlines (and therefore clicks). We read about messages like &# 8220; disaster: Federal Government recommends hoarding&# 8221 ;: who only reads this headline, then immediately think that a bad disaster has occurred or is imminent. That's nonsense, of course, even if no one will argue with the current world situation, that there is absolute security for the future. It remains questionable whether the government's initiative to help create a sense of security or triggers only new fears. After the excitement yesterday, the opposition government, therefore, now accuses even alarmist.

Civil Protection: protect the population in case of crisis

Civil or Civil Protection &# 8211; So the maintenance of public infrastructure in a crisis &# 8211; of course, is not entirely new invention. In fact, in Germany there are such concepts since the 60s. During the Cold War, it was to take measures to protect the population in case of nuclear attack &# 8211; then a tangible and realistic threat. Over time, the respective measures have been continuously adapted to the prevailing security situation.

The Internet blog has mimikama.at therefore probably not entirely wrong when it says: &# 8220; What just to watch here is a wonderful header hype about a topic that is commissioned for several years.&# 8221;
