The Belated Implementation of the Morgenthau Plan

Unless something drastic is done, and soon, Germany will cease to be an advanced industrial power before the coming winter is over.

Germany transitions “from an industrial country into an industrial museum”

Berlin

The President of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), Markus Steilemann, has warned that Germany is at risk of turning “from an industrial country to an industrial museum” because of the federal government’s energy policies. In order to implement the energy transition, you would need “ten wind turbines every day,” the 52-year-old warned on Wednesday, according to the Bild newspaper.

“One of them needs 4,000 tons of steel; that’s half an Eiffel Tower. That means: five Eiffel Towers every day. And that for the next eight years.” He wants to see how the federal government can manage this feat.

Saving the industry: “Speed must now be the decisive criterion”

VCI Managing Director Wolfgang Große Entrup also called for rapid progress in the energy transition: “Speed must now be the decisive criterion.” The situation is becoming more dramatic every day.

“Our companies need air to breathe, quickly. We can’t wait for anything or anyone anymore. It’s about saving the industrial structures that make our prosperity possible.” The VCI represents the interests of around 1,900 companies from the chemical industry, which have a turnover of around €220 billion and employ over 530,000 people.

Meanwhile, the general manager of the Federal Association of Building Materials, Matthias Frederichs, warned that Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) must connect all available energy sources to the grid in times of imminent gas shortages — including nuclear power plants. “Otherwise,” Frederichs criticized, “there is a risk of bankruptcy and exodus.”

Afterword from the translator:

The crash had already begun under the Merkel government, the traffic light* only completes the deconstruction work. How many of the CEOs, but also the middle class, have endorsed the energy transition? Now that the abyss is visible, they come out of their holes wailing.

    Yellow:   Free Democratic Party
    Green:   Alliance90 / The Greens

  1. If Germans start decorating lampposts and tannenbaums with Green ornaments and the walls of Herr Schwab’s mansion with his thinking meat then perhaps it will be possible to know what they are serious about fixing their energy problems and their serfdom to the American Empire.

  2. Truth be told, “German Engineering” in my house ended by the year 2000. I wouldn’t buy a new Mercedes, but one made before the year 2000, I would still buy, because that was “good engineering”, in my opinion. Good quality, reliable, simple.

    The modern German products seem to pride themselves to be the most complicated things on Earth, and I don’t really want that, so maybe it’s a good time to “reset” back to good old engineering, and drop the over-complicated stuff that comes out of Germany these days.

    • you hit the nail, Barn.
      I have/ had 2 Mercedes, one of the make 2000 and one of 2009. Both had inherent technical flaws, one of which was repaired by the manufacturer on his own bill though warrancy had long expired. Speaks for itself.

      • Yea – I have a very similar experience. Though I must admit, that I have never had a Mercedes leave me stranded, but with the new ones there always seems to be some “system”, or some “gadget” that goes wrong, and it’s just annoying.

        Funny thing is that Vans and commercial vehicles don’t seem to be affected by this as much.

        If Mercedes wants to go the road of making money on “authorised service”, good on them, but they will lose one fan. I learned to drive on a 1960 diesel Mercedes that never needed any service, and ran until it rusted through and through, and they got rid of it, engine still running. That’s the kind of car I would like to get once again.

  3. Are any of the D.C. neo cons descendants of Morgenthau and his Aides who, after the second world war, wanted Germany reduced to an agricultural waste land?

    • Foreign secretary Baerbock has just appointed ( an express-naturalized) American woman, former head with Greenpeace, by the name of Morgan(thau). Rumours have it that employees are fleeing the place. Same thing in Habecks office.
      Reality beats historic fiction.

  4. “People cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalization of western social media companies can’t heat their homes. Everything I am saying is important. And what I just said is no less so: you can’t feed anyone with paper – you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalization – you need energy.

    “That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like “Why is that, in fact?” are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals. They point back at Russia and say: that is the source of all your troubles. More lies.”

  5. The present day Germans have lost their will to reproduce, defend their cultural ,or most important to question their government actions and inactions. They have put their lives and future to be sacrifice on the alter of green mother earth goddess .While the elites are replacing them with orc like people from Moslem countries who must be governor with an iron hand or chaos will rein. The present day Germans are looking at no central heating and food storages and retreating backward to a society run by unelected king and queens of the new world order under the cloak of the EU. They will skip from 1 world to 3 world without hitting 2 world They will look like some African run Tinpot country in less then 25 years in my humble opinion if the course is not change now.

  6. Mark Twain once opined about history not repeating itself, but rhyming. Germany has been a threat to the corrupt, evil British and American Empires ever since the late 1800’s. Perfidious Albion has looked upon the industrial and educational might of that country with dread ever since Otto von Bismarck. Irony of ironies, however, both of these corrupt and syphilitic-thinking socialist septic tanks are stewing in their own cauldrons of mismanagement, thanks to surrendering their sovereignty to the corrupt and syphilitic-thinking socialist septic tanks of Brussels and Amerika. We live in interesting times.

  7. No awesome cars and who will mine the cellphones and carbon credits, the replacements?
    A slow burn agrarian reset 80 years in the making, how they fear an organized and united Deutschland.

    • In this context, I recommend to revisit the policy of western powers that lead into WWI. I did, and it is breathtaking. A long shot would be to start with the Crimean War(sic Krim!), the Berlin Conference where Germany was granted what remained of Africa though Bismarck was opposed to colonialism, and then, last but not least, the Entente policy that tried by all means to insulate Germany and keep it away from Russia. British ” balance of power”: one for you, nineteen for me.
      Rings a bell to present events, doesn’t it?

      • The bloody Brits and their Great Games put us into the position we are today, if Germany had won the 1st World War and did it quickly, we would not be in this position today.

  8. If those industrialists are terrified about their investments, what is stopping them from protecting said investments?

    Those people have access to billions of Euro and dont tell me that they are beacons of morality.
    They are dirty and they must have some telephone numbers of “experts” in the field of “removal” on speed dial.

    I suspect theyy would need not more then one call and one by one the german politicians are warned and if they dont heed the warning then one of them has an “accident”.
    The rest will fall in line quickly.

    • Don’t worry Alex, things are about to go from bad to a hell of lot worse, then the fun and games really begin, and it won’t be just one of two politicians and their WEF type followers and families who get it, there will be thousands that get what they richly deserve when the coups begin.

  9. The decision has been made: Germany must burn. It will be a cleansing fire. Those with the spirit of the phoenix will rise from the ashes and soar again. Among the missing will be the faint of heart, the anti-God/ anti-human waste Die Linke is so fond of courting within their tent, and mostly, God willing, the evil architects of what has befallen Germany and all of Western Europe. Those who joyfully anticipate the pain of the remnant German spirit which has been pent up and criminalized for generations will find their views of the future limited by the devices upon which they are mounted. Götterdämmerung has returned! Or not.

  10. To be an enemy of the US can be dangerous, to be a friend of the US is lethal.

    Ukraine is one example, Germany another. It is safer to a friend of Russia’s.
