Why can the world not learn something from what the communists did? More 
people died in communist camps than in nazi-camps. Why is it worse to kill 
people of racial reasons than of political reasons?

How come that the Gunther Deckert, the leader of the NPD has been thrown into
prison? His party is not illegal and therefore not a nazi-party.

  It is a grave flaw in the human rights, if the spread of neo-nazis is not
protected. If this is the case, I cannot take these human rigths seriously. 
The freedom of speech is for everyone even nazis, communists, Jews etc. 
The freedom of speech should be valid for either everyone or nobody, 
otherwise there would be no equality before the law.
