The book, written by the authors in 2016, is a logical continuation of the previous works of the authors, devoted to security issues in modern Germany and the problems associated with the presence of a large number of migrants in the society. The authors argue that many events might not have happened, many problems could have been avoided if the ruling elite and the media had not been silent on crimes committed by migrants and refugees. Such behavior of the mass media and politicians is conditioned by the multiculturalism policy prevailing in the country and the ideas of political correctness.
