Saudi Arabia is the Worst Country in the World for Atheists

The classification comes as no surprise since Saudi Arabia classifies Atheists as terrorists.

Key paragraph from the link shown below

Fascism is best seen this way. A person who believes that there is a hierarchy of personhood — that some people are more human than others, and some fall below the threshold of being people entirely — and furthermore, that that hierarchy should be institutionalized, is a fascist. A movement composed of such people is a fascist movement. A government managing such a project is a fascist government. (The natural moral logic of such a hierarchy is that violence must be done to the weak by the strong, since they are not human beings at all, but parasites and predators.)

But that creates a very big problem for America. If that definition is true — you are welcome to think about whether it is — then America was a fascist country for a very long time, and many Americans have always been welcoming to fascist ideas, because the central organizing principle of American life was just such a hierarchy of personhood — and its institutionalization. Slavery and segregation, after all, was exactly all this, wasn’t it?

Haha I normally wince at all the Eurovision entries, it's all harmless fun but a good example of fremdshämen.

Scump causes shame in the USA

So you've embarassed yourself in front of friends, family, the whole country, your entire hemisphere, the person you love. It happens, life can be hard. Maybe you wished you were someone else or that your head wouldn't turn so crimson it makes a tomato look pale. Definitely not a comfortable situation for you.

It might be a relief to know that in many cases, friends, family, country, hemisphere, or loved one will actually share your plight. You're making them feel just as uncomfortable as you are feeling. Even worse, sometimes you're not even aware of how much of an ass you have made of yourself but others are still embarassed for you.
- You're Bridget Jones on a date. 
- Or George W. Bush in trade negotiations with China. 
- Or you have your friends over and your parents proudly display your baby pictures.
Watching others humiliate themselves in public can be almost physically painful, yet at the same time, perversely riveting. 

Fremdschämen (pronounce: "Fremmd-Shamen") is the German word for this sentiment of joint embarassment. In the literal sense it means "external shame".

Use it in a sentence!
Today's example was prompted by the Eurovision Song Contest, always a good opportunity to feel embarassed for others.

"Bereits nach den ersten Klängen des diesjährigen Beitrags von Großbritannien zum Eurovision Song Contest zuckte das Publikum innerlich zusammen. Ein europaweites Fremdschämen machte sich breit."

"Right after the first notes of Great Britain's contribution to this year's Eurovision Song Contest, the audience winced innerly. A feeling of Fremdschämen spread throughout Europe.
