Ratio turns into nonsense, benefit into menace – again

Applying for citizenship/naturalisation in Germany means that the applicant has to undergo a test with a variety of questions. The concern issues of culture, religion, politics and policies, the economy and you name it. One of them asks

What does the abbreviation CDU stand for in Germany?

It is a multiple-choice question and the following is suggested:

  • Christian German environmental protection
  • Association of German entrepreneurs
  • Christian German Union
  • Christian Democratic

Now, leaving the official and formally correct answer aside, there is a good reasons for identifying the Christian Democratic Union at least ideologically with a club of German Entrepreneurs. Well, we may speak of a dilemma: saying the truth instead of blindly following the rules may be hugely counter-productive.
