I love how people call them "entitled." As if native Germans have done anything to earn the benefits they seek other than being born to the right parents?

You know...nothing other than to create and abide by social norms and mores that are conducive to happy and prosperous lives? Or other than taking collective accountability and rebuilding after losing a major world war to become a regional hegemon? You're probably right those benefits just grow like weeds in Germany and the people pick them without care.

Really, German children being born today have done all that?

So you make enough money to buy a house. You live in it, get married, have children. You renovated, added, and put a lot of time and money to make a safe shelter for you and your family.

You're already setting up a false analogy. Sure, a lot of people work hard and contribute to their society. But a lot of people are born into it and don't do anything to help. Many are even an active detriment to their society. Yet they still get the same citizenship rights as anyone else. You don't have to do anything to be rewarded the benefits of citizenship. You don't have to contribute a thing. You just have to get lucky and be born to the right parents.

So tell me: why should someone who got lucky by being born to the right parents be given more rights than someone who was unlucky enough to be born in a crappy country? Why does the lazy freeloading parasite natural born German deserve more rights and privileges than the migrant that risked his life and freedom to reap the same benefits?
