Two school classes and a democracy experiment that gets out of hand

Two eighth grade forms and a political experiment. A role play is to be used to introduce 32 grammar school students to the topic of democracy. The kids are given five days in which to make two groups, each of which appoints a candidate before finally electing a president. The aim is to get the teenagers interested in politics. The teachers, however, lose their grip and the game gets out of control: instead of protection for the minority, a secret ballot and separation of powers, it is not long before fake news, intrigues and demonstrations of power hold sway in the election campaign …

• A parable of what undermines democracy

• Fake news and filter bubbles were called the biggest danger to democracy by Obama in a recent interview – a danger that has been underestimated for a long time

"A unsparingly open young adult novel - journalistically researched in neo-Nazi milieu and captivatingly narrated."

Saarländischer Rundfunk/ Radio Bremen
