Restriction of Basic Rights in Germany

Restriction of basic rights — The change in the Infection Protection Act makes it possible

by Hellequin GB

Whoever has not grasped by now the fact that their freedoms and livelihoods are being utterly destroyed by those they “voted” for cannot be helped any longer. They’ve all dug their own graves, willingly, and now must lie down in them, because the government tells them to.

Giving up and selling your loved ones and future generations into BONDAGE is simply so much less bothersome than standing up to fight for your family, their freedom and their future.

The SPD and Union parliamentary groups have agreed on a revision of the Infection Protection Act in order to better safeguard the restrictions on fundamental rights and to withstand them in court.

The current paragraph 28 of the Infection Protection Act, which only regulates very local and time-limited measures in the event of epidemics, is to be expanded by paragraph 28a, which contains clear restrictions.

The Basic Law is no longer above all other laws?

This is how easy it is to undermine basic rights in the name of an allegedly dangerous pandemic and to manifest “authorizations” through arbitrary state decisions. Somehow reminiscent of 1933-45 perhaps?

Anyone who sleeps in a democracy wakes up in a dictatorship — and as Merkel said in a speech on June 16, 2005, on the 60th anniversary of the CDU in Berlin:

“We really have no legal right to democracy.”

  1. I don’t understand how Germany has very bad COVID laws when freedom loving England is arresting people for sitting on their balcony for months now. Am I just really complacent? It seems no different than restrictions anywhere else, and more countries are expected to join.

    • Freedom loving England?

      I live in Britain. For the most part the British are brainwashed slaves.
      The most effective brainwashing mechanism is the NHS.
      I heard so many British saying they wouldn’t mind paying (even) more taxes if the money goes to the NHS. It is disgusting.

      From my experience in the UK it is my understanding that most British hate freedom.

  2. The actions are reminiscent of the Nazi actions when they first came to power in Germany in 1933.

    The idea is, all independent community organizations and social life independent of the government was suppressed. Fraternal organizations, sports clubs, community clubs…all were disbanded.

    The objective was to suppress all social and community life outside of the auspices of the government. That way, no opposition to the single-party government could coalesce.c
