A Syrian Migrant and a Right-Wing Nationalist Walk Into A Bar...

Ok, it's not a bar. They meet on a bench in a park to talk not about immigration but about hate speech. In October, Germany will start requiring social media networks (Facebook, Twitter) to delete hate speech and fake news. Is this a good idea? Or an assault on free speech?

What's impossibly wonderful about this short film (under 5 mins) is the level of civility and grace the two men exhibit during their discussion. It gives me hope for the future of political discourse. Especially when it's conducted face-fo-face and not across the rancorous interwebs.
