Peace be with you
You went away empty-handed in inheritance or will go away empty-handed - but otherwise, nothing terrible has happened. For your consolation: half of all Germans won't inherit any significant fortune. So for now, you're not alone. In fact, non-heirs even have one great advantage over heirs: they are free and not bound to any testator or clan. There is hardly any inherited fortune that comes along without expectations of the heir. It will incriminate and restrict the recipient in some way. Some inheritance costs the heir the adventure of his/her personal life.
Nevertheless, the situation is politically unsatisfactory
In this society, we have agreed upon a liberal system that cannot work without equal opportunities. The social differences in possession and power among people should result from their performance for other people. Then they can be accepted by all, and peace in society is maintained.
If you are, like us, in favour of private property, then we must also agree upon the transfer of acquired assets, i.e. the inheritance. Without it, all assets would sooner or later end up in public hands. But the rules according to which inheritance take place must be discussed. A supplement to our inheritance law through a basic inheritance, as it is proposed here, would be the piece of justice that is missing in our society, in our capitalist system today. It would not leave anyone empty-handed, and it would be a practical step to unite society in today's political situation.
Our inheritance tip for you as a non-heir:
Convert your disappointment or frustration - if you have it - into a political attitude! Go beyond your personality and stand up for our country and fairer structures in the transfer of property between the generations. This is not so much a struggle as merely an open but unswerving confession and adherence to the truth. It is merely a matter of not accepting the general lie. Let us never call this society a just or a liberal society as long as half of the people are left empty-handed in inheritance. Carry before you the general right for a share in the Earth and the nation for everyone peacefully but unmistakably. It's good and healthy for the mind. If that's not enough activity for you, come to us. There's a lot to do. The time is ripe. Help to set an example and get the world's first season of a general basic inheritance on the way.
