  1. What's the issue with dual nationality?

    I can assure you not all locals are well versed in their own country's history and politics, yet they're entitled to vote all the same. Therefore it's absurd to bar naturalised citizens under the assumption that they might not know the history and politics, when it's quite obvious many locals don't have a clue, either.

    And if you're that paranoid about foreigners pretending to be German, there are already examples in other countries where restrictions are in place for dual nationals, see: Australia's legislation regarding elected political officials and dual nationality.    If you're really terrified that someone might have 'dual loyalties', then place limits on those professions where it could be a *potential* issue, i.e. politics, military, intelligence services, etc., and don't burden average people with your paranoia. 
  3. What's the issue with dual nationality?

    Imagine having a world view that is so paranoid that dual nationality as a concept cannot even be considered in case countries go to war en masse and begin drafting private citizens into said war ... and those citizens cannot be trusted. Like, sorry, that is a super warped mindset. 
  4. What's the issue with dual nationality?

      Do you hear yourself? Yikes. I don't feel loyalty to any state. Wtf does that even mean? It's a very old-fashioned world view, IMO. For 99.99999999999% of people, there will never be a 'conflict of loyalties'. I can see this being an issue when it comes to politicians, military, BND, etc., but ... for the average person there is never going to be any 'conflict of interest' that negatively affects any of the states that issued the passports.     
  5. What's the issue with dual nationality?

    I guess pray for a SPD/Green/something coalition then! Even if it takes a couple of years to get anything passed, that'd be about the time I'd be eligible, and I just don't want to give up my current passport.
