We’re the open society and have to defend ourselves. At least this is what many people say. And then there are people who have sworn to “defend the right and the freedom of the German nation bravely“. But why do we know so little about them? Who’s serving in the army these days? Serving whom or what? Out of which motivation? What is this service about? And which values are supposed to be defended? Against whom or what? Out of interviews with German army members we created a theatrical parlor game that introduces the participants into the thoughts and experiences of soldiers and forces them to make decisions that aim at the heart of our democratic self-concept.
