By the way, here is a link to that sketch, if anyone wants it. Let's make a game and count the Swastikas.

Like I mentioned, you can always import those games, no harm done.
And thanks for the thumb ^^

so basically you have this law that if i recall was made before video games where a big thing and that's why they weren't included in the exemption list that says you shouldn't have games like this or that but the government just really doesn't care about it
User avatar #126 to #125 - seras (06/11/2014) [-]
Pretty much, yeah. It isn't even allowed to care.

If you can own any forbidden or restricted video game just by simply importing it, and no one is going to arrest or fine you for it, then what the hell is the point of making it illegal in the first place?

It's symbolic. Maybe like being against internet piracy.
#167 to #45 - anon (06/12/2014) [-]
as a german I have two theories about that:

th first theory is:
since forbidden video games are 18+ in germany (and you actually have to show the delivery service proof that you are indeed older than 18) , those games are harder to get for children

my second theory is:
that this law is like 25 years old and politics doesn't give the slightest ****

By the way: in the Helsing DVD you might see Swastikas, but not in the Manga (Pic related). Companies often censor their own work, so there is is no chance to get in trouble with the law, even if they are right.
#183 to #45 - anon (06/12/2014) [-]
Principles?
#48 to #45 - wesergold (06/11/2014) [-]
because it's not actualy "illegal" it's illegal to advertise or display the game in a shop, so technicaly if you walk up to the shop assistant and ask him if they have it on stock he can sell it to you (if you are 18). it's illegal to advertise/display/ directly offer it to the customer.

15 years ago when video games were mostly sold in small shops and the market was a lot smaller in general, usualy every good game store had a bunch of indexed games and you could simply buy them by specificaly asking for them. today games are mostly sold by bigger companies and they don't bother to have indexed games in stock because it's more simple to just import the game key from abroad.
User avatar #49 to #48 - schmitty (06/11/2014) [-]
But my point still stands, why bother restricting it if you can still buy it and have? To me it just doesn't make any sense to forbid advertisement of the game, if people can just go in and say I want [insert game title here] and get it?
#119 to #49 - anon (06/11/2014) [-]
So underaged persons don't see the advertising and persuade an 18+ to buy it for them.
#50 to #49 - wesergold (06/11/2014) [-]
maybe because taking personal liberties like that away from citizens is a very sensitiv topic in germany. The fear of a police state or dictatorship maybe ? idk

I always wondered what's the whole point of indexing and censoring games and movies anyways, just give it an 18+ rating and let every adult decide for himself what he wants to see.
#192 to #50 - franzharper (06/12/2014) [-]
even 18+ games are sometimes censored
#133 to #45 - anon (06/11/2014) [-]
#51 to #45 - seras (06/11/2014) [-]
Wesergold was half right. There are restricted games, which you can't advertise, but there are also downright forbidden games. For example: Call Of Duty 1 and 2: Restricted. Can't be advertised, but you can buy it if you know where to look. Manhunt: forbidden, can`t buy it anywhere. What's the point? I don't know, honestly. The freedom of speech and gathering information is a basic law, so that's why you can simply import it.
Interesting to note is that any media not rated can not be sold in germany. Guess which are the only games that can be forbidden? Games that are not rated.
Yes, the only games the state has a right to forbid are those that can`t even be sold in the first place.

no they didnt , this picture is from an episode about how someone accidentally printed the swastika wrong on the flags
They are shown uncensored in every other episode
#204 to #11 - anon (06/12/2014) [-]
Not censored. The episode was about someone responsible for printing the wrong singn inside of the flag.

User avatar #151 to #11 - mindfeeder (06/12/2014) [-]
Wrong. The joke in this episode was that the swastika symbol on all the typewriters in his department of the office were broken but he didn't want to buy them new typewriters in order to save money. (Hitler said: "Use the hash symbol instead, it looks the same.") Later, Joseph Goebbels, his superior in that show, was angry about all the flags that had this hash symbol instead.

Actually I went to live in Hamburg 6 months ago and the thing that I was shocked about was that you still have all those complexes about the war. My friend from Hamburg said that nobody she knows knows the national anthem because being proud of being German isnt perceived well by Germans. This is really ****** up. It was like a century ago, the nazis are dead mostly. You have a great country, be proud of it.
User avatar #98 to #95 - seras (06/11/2014) [-]
Denpends on the people she spends time with, most likely. We learn the anthem at school once, but are never made to sing it, because forceing pupils to sing it in school is against the law. Freedom of speech and stuff. Nobody I know has those "complexes" as you call them. Could be an educational or social thing with her.
#161 to #98 - anon (06/12/2014) [-]
People in the U.S.A seem to be so used to this near(if not full blown) brainwashing nationalism that they expect anyone less rabid than that must not be proud of their country.
#100 to #98 - inczi (06/11/2014) [-]
It was more than her, really some of the Germans I talked to seemed embarassed to be Germans. One time, driving to work there was a quiz in the radio. The spokesperson asked to give an example of a word on a specific letter belonging to a specific topic. Like a car on S and you could sat Seat or Suzuki. And the lady was going forward with it but when he asked for a dictator starting with H, she went all silent and **** .
User avatar #102 to #100 - seras (06/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, some people just don't seem to be able to get over it. A shame, really. But it changes slowly, at least.

Denying the Holocaust is against their law? Sounds a bit weird if you have to make it a law.
User avatar #23 to #22 - seras (06/11/2014) [-]
That stops political parties from denying it (we have right winged parties here, after all) and forces schools to teach about it. That's the whole idea behind it.

Videofootage, signed reports of all kinds, we germany may where massmurderer but we make sure we dokument it well for future generations to see how efficient you can kill.

The Nazi party used that for propaganda but the allies later for evidence and hang the people in charge that where still alive.

ok sorry, i tried to say that the Nazis made dokuments about everything they did. they even had list with the names of the jews they murdered in the KZs andstuff. that is evidence.

Do not apologize, but what if someone were to try and dispute evidence presented, would they be arrested or what? Also, Jews weren't the only ones systematically exterminated.
#53 to #33 - wesergold (06/11/2014) [-]
don't listen to anon.

Section 130
Incitement to hatred

Section 189
Violating the memory of the dead

Section 194
Request to prosecute

Denying the holocaust is mainly covered in Section 130 (it doesn't explicitly say holocaust tho. Just generaly any form of "hate speech" towards any group of people. that includes denying the holocaust).

source is this english translation of the german criminal code:

www.gesetze-im-internet.de/englisch_stgb/englisch_stgb.html

Also spraying swastikas and similiar NS symbols can get you in trouble aswell. A friend of mine had to do community service for tagging it on a wall.

And even music can get you in trouble. A famous german neo nazi band was declared a terrorist organisation and the lead singer went to prison for 3 years.

User avatar #131 to #53 - mrmuffins (06/11/2014) [-]
Huh, Interesting. Thanks for the well made answer.
#34 to #33 - anon (06/11/2014) [-]
You wouldn't be arrested for trying to dispute the evidence with evidence of your own. It's more of, if you're a crazy I-don't-care-what-you-say person. And even then, you probably wouldn't be arrested for standing on the street yelling it at random people. If you were a teacher telling their class that it didn't happen... Then there would be a problem.
#39 to #34 - anon (06/11/2014) [-]
Another way of putting it is comparing it to jaywalking. It's illegal here in the states, but no one actually cares. It's more of just a baseline used for, "This person was retarded and decided to walk across the highway blindfolded." It's just a rule to fall back on during a complicated mess.
#129 to #26 - anon (06/11/2014) [-]
There is plenty of evidence 9/11 happened. Doesn't mean we should make denying it illegal.

I live in Alabama and its about the same with our history of slavery and racism. Almost everyone here will agree that it is wrong but it is in the past and should be left there. The only people that still have those beliefs are the older generations that grew up with it and the young and stupid.
