City train, bald guy with big headphones. A punk, also wearing big headphones, gets in and sits down across from him.

Two mins later: Bald Guy takes off his headphones, looks at Punk. Punk takes off headphones, too.

Bald Guy, somewhat shy: “Am I looking too nazi-ish?“

P examines B.
P: “Nah. Nothing I can see that would raise a flag.“
B: “Ah, that's good. Thanks man. 🤜“
P: “You got it. 🤛“

"Wer gegen das argumentiert mit der Forderung, dass Leute für das Geld, das sie bekommen, gefälligst mal arbeiten sollen, kann das natürlich machen, sollte sich dann aber dringend auch für ein komplett umgekrempeltes Erbschaftsrecht einsetzen - außer, er möchte einfach direkt zugeben, dass es ihm um den Erhalt der Klassengegensätze geht."
