Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Quite funny story, and right: people who enthusiastically go to central stations with teddy bears don't have to be convinced that refugees are people. They are convincing a lot of people to copy their teddy distributing behaviour and thus take visibly a stance, though. And both groups are setting a new normal. Suddenly the perception no longer is that there is a "flood" of millions coming. The perception is that there are exhausted families coming who have lost everything, even their kids' teddy bears. Human beings who need help.

Are you going to answer my other questions too? What would the left's reaction be, if we behaved with exactly the wisdom you want us to have? What do you want us to do, apart from stopping to distribute teddy bears?
