“The Nazis had a phrase which covered all abuses by the state: ‘Für Ihre Sicherheit‘“

"The Nazis had a phrase that covered all abuses by the State: ‘Für euer sischerheit’ ---> ‘It’s for your safety’” was posted on Facebook by Go Pray USA on April 3, 2020. The meme is often accompanied with a photo or a video of Nazis.

The saying means that government often does bad things “for your safety,” and one should not rely on government. The saying arose during the forced quarantines of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Cooperation will get us through crisis faster
If Facebook commenting is any kind of barometer of community sentiment about public health orders aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, a decent percentage of the population is chafing under the restrictions.
