News Show Tagesthemen Celebrates Inflation

Our public broadcaster aired a speech by Detlef Flintz which sounds like a page from the Great Reset playbook. And it is shockingly direct. Yes, you will consume less. Yes, you will be forced. Yes, you will produce differently. Yes, masses will have to rely on welfare. Yes, we will rebrand it as basic income. Yes, we do make comforting promises about its sufficiency. Telling the masses these things plainly is so far the most brash test balloon that I have seen.

Will The German Floods Be Attributed To Climate Change?

Long and heavy rainfalls have flooded Germany over the weekend. The most affected areas are the states Rhineland-Palatinate and North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW). 170 deaths have been confirmed, but many people are still missing. Naturally the politicization of the events is slow because even the most reckless players have an incentive not to appear too reckless and unconcerned about the plight of the people on the ground. But slowly media articles dribble down suggesting that this flood is a manifestation of the omnipresent man-made climate change. The New York Times offers additional humidity in warmer air as a reasoning. German magazine Focus expects ‘permanent rain and droughts’ to come. Both. Not much effort goes into sorting the logic out and to educate the public. In fact the New York Times mentioned explanation was crammed into a single sentence. Their readers are supposed to do all the education on their own.

Germany Mourns 30 Years of Reunification

Germany is mourning the 30th anniversary of the country’s reunification. In the wake of the fall of the wall today’s president Frank-Walter Steinmeier had lost his column at ‘Demokratie und Recht,’ a magazine financed by the East German dictatorship. The publisher went bankrupt (due to the cruelty of the capitalist, fascist market, i.e. people who rather buy something else). Media and politicians wail about the hardship East Germans faced after their beloved dictatorship fell. All these people wanted, so the wisdom of our elites, was equality. They may have shouted ‘freedom!’ and ‘we are the people!,’ but what they meant is in the eye of the elites and that is constantly aired in the Western media for 30 years and running. After 30 years of constant petty comparisons about wage differences, pension differences, employment rate differences, property ownership differences on TV and in print the elites finally hear them, they hear their cries for freedom and stubbornly translate them into cries for equality. Note: Sorry for the voice-box sound. I noticed it too late.

Two Arson Nights in the Greek Refugee Camp ‘Moria’

In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday a number of people have set shelters on fire, eradicating the accommodations for a whopping 12,000 residents. Disturbingly, the arsonists are probably disgruntled inhabitants themselves. The rage is believed to have been sparked by corona restrictions that were spwaned by the positive test results of 35 individuals. What was left after the first fire, was burnt down in a second one in the night from Wednesday to Thursday, destroying an additional 1,000 shelters. Soon voices were heard that blamed Europe on the situation. Not the elites. Mind you! Europe. Armin Laschet, Prime Minister of the state North-Rhine Westfalia, knows what NGOs and media want to hear and proposes to take them to Germany. Interior minister plays the “bad cop” feigning some lukewarm conservative approach, which is to distribute them across Europe. This is controlled opposition. The hyper-bad-Nazi-gestapo-cop solution to distribute them across Asia and Africa is not offered.
