Kruse therefore makes a specific proposal before the games with the German soccer squad at the 2021 Olympics *: “We should make mandatory 'identity checks' on social media.

This is just an example, but we have to start somewhere.

In this way we could effectively fight anonymous hate speech on the Internet, ”says Kruse.

“We'll probably be able to vaccinate around 80 million people within a year.

It's good.
