Despite the necessity to face an impending food crisis the European Union and the Dutch government have shoved down an anti-agriculture directive which keeps stirring up mass protests and violent altercations in the Netherlands. The German parliament Bundestag has turned down the option to continue nuclear energy. The ECB keeps flooding the place with money, but given the inflation that is going to change. A disorganised brainstorm.
The Conservative Objection To Individualism
In Washington D.C. the Uber driver Mohammed Anwar was murdered by two car-hijacking teenagers in the most brutal, revolting and meaningless fashion. Who is to blame?
The easy answer is society. Everybody but the murderers could have provided better education, welfare and whatever the left-wing wish list of the day asks for. How convenient. But the easy answer is, ‘the girls and the girls only.’ The charm of this answer lies in the ease of ignoring the left-wing wish list. With two easy answers I was prepared to record a short video, but it became a long one.
The tension between individualism and collectivism is felt in every school of thought. Even Muslims insist on individualism to vaporize their responsibility. No group should be judged for the acts of an individual. Blame the suicide bomber! Or whatever is left of him.
And while the left-wing wish list is the only go-to for the public in the age of “liberal” media hegemony, an honest search for the remedies of our societal problems is neglected. The signs of cultural decay are written on the wall. Crime as well as professional, financial and reputational insecurities cause high levels of stress which in turn breaks down families and leaves frustrated singles unable to find their matches. The gender confusion (not to be confused with actual queer people) has gotten so badly out of control that even gay (and mostly left-wing) journalist Glenn Greenwald scratches his head. And amidst the exhaustion conservatives wonder whether ‘everybody for himself’ still holds all the answers.
To illuminate the subject, I discuss the case of a sociopathic murderer who was elected member of parliament in Berlin. His victim died either of his brutal beating or his strangulation. The murderer Gerwald Claus-Brunner electrocuted himself to death five days after the murder.
When Katie Hopkins could not make sense of the conflicting news reports from South Africa, she decided to search for the truth on her own. With a film team and security guards she made a documentary that would ban her from the country for the rest of her life.
What she discovered was a far more complex picture that involves more than just racism. “Witches” are consulted by savage pagans to know when they will be “strong enough” for an attack on a farmer. Stalinist Kulak expropriations lead to food shortage and derelict properties. People within the security forces, both the police and the military, seem to co-operate with the criminals. And the dividing line is not just the skin color, but, more importantly, the party preference.
The Lutheran Church Day Woodstock
The Lutheran Church Day Festival (German: evangelischer Kirchentag) is a hocus pocus new age fair masquerading as Christianity. This year’s sermons were about the refugee crisis, climate change and right-wing populism. The motto ‘What a trust!’. But what trust? Trust in G-d or trust in the state? It is not clear. But if you are not lying passed out in the grass, you probably do it wrong anyway.
