Culture Clash at New Year's Bash

In Germany. With people who may be migrants from North Africa:

"Taking advantage of the New Year’s Eve street party, hundreds of young men broke into groups and formed rings around young women, refusing to let them escape, the authorities said. Some groped victims while others stole wallets or cellphones."

We'll see how it shakes out.

Cultures are complex systems, that embody notions of what is acceptable and what is verboten.

At some point, you have to grasp that not all value systems are subjective or relativistic. That some values are just better than others at protecting humans from harm.

It is to be fervently hoped,
this is grasped before more get groped.
