Angela Merkel’s speech to the Employers Day (Arbeitgebertag) is the perfect opportunity to dive into the collectivist, welfare-addled mindset that cripples our country. Her aggregation of power is centered around making “representatives” of various demographics chummy with one another at the cost of those who they supposedly represent. Merkel regards continental Europe as a system between capitalist America and the communist China. Between the hand-out grabbers and the cold competition, she sees the “challenges” of our time sandwiched: digitalisation and climate change. Both challenges must – of course – be tackled top-down and with an iron fist.
