Leave it to the Germans ….. drug the citizens into submission. What next Zyklon B?
LOVE DRUG: WESTERNERS ARE KINDER TO MIGRANTS WHEN GIVEN THE 'LOVE HORMONE' OXYTOCIN AND PUT UNDER PEER PRESSURE, SCIENTISTS FIND
ACADEMICS NOTE THAT PEOPLE TEND TO BE MORE 'ALTRUISTIC TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAN TO PERFECT STRANGERS' – BUT THINK THEY KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THIS.
By Jasper Hamill, The Sun, 15th August 2017 (thanks to Alan):
Researchers from the University of Bonn said that humans tend to be generally kinder to friends and family than strangers.
"Given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures."
The suggestion that Westerners should be given drugs to make them more welcoming to foreigners is likely to be hugely controversial.
Millions of migrants and "refugees" have poured into Europe in recent years, with people now attempting to cross the Mediterranean on jetskis after paying up to £3,000 per person.
Angela Merkel recently told Donald Trump she "wishes" she hadn't opened Germany's borders to refugees, while the billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates said Europe was at "breaking point".

The crisis claimed more than 5,000 lives last year and the death toll for 2017 passed 1,000 by April.
So could oxytocin be used to change some European's attitudes and encourage them to accept their new neighbours?
