Whistling Past Der Friedhof

This lede from Der Spiegel has got to be a contender for Wishful Thinking of the Week:
Germany is experiencing an unprecedented influx of immigrants who will fundamentally change the country. They represent a burden, but also a chance to create a New Germany, one that is more cosmopolitan and generous.
Oh yeah, that's going to work. They're importing large numbers of cultural aliens from countries that couldn't be less cosmopolitan and generous if they tried and the result will be ... unicorns and rainbows!

I guess if you've got no concrete definition of who you are as a people, it hardly matters who you let in and how they change the place.
