The title of this post is a reference to the Old English saying Wyrd bið ful aræd, which means, roughly, “Fate is completely inescapable.” Bernard Cornwell prominently featured the phrase in his series of historical novels entitled The Saxon Chronicles.
The word wyrd has the same root as “weird” in the Scots idiom to dree one’s weird, which means to endure one’s fate.
The following essay looks ahead to 2023 as the year when the nation of Germany will have to dree its weird.

2023 Will Be a Fateful Year for Germany
Dear readers, another annus horribilis in and for Germany comes to an end in 2022, one which one does not know whether one should be glad to have survived, or whether one should prudently keep it in honourable memory — because that what lies ahead is only going to get worse.
The rapid intellectual and material loss of substance and prosperity goes hand in hand with a rapid erosion of trust in the honesty and competence of politics. And no one can say when this development will become hyper-critical, when it will become life-threatening in Germany. We can still try to sugarcoat things, flee into private life, close our eyes in Biedermeier denial to the approaching impacts — but firstly, as all pre-revolutionary epochs of history have shown, this self-deception only works for a short time, and secondly, we allow the established facts to pull us deeper into the abyss with each passing day. The price to pay for the coming catastrophe is pushed higher and higher. The escalations are progressing at all levels. At the same time it will be respice finem (the end), and the warning reference to the inevitable outcome of the development more and more hysterically frowned upon.
What am I talking about here, what exactly is being escalated? The answer: basically everything. Company deaths, economic flight, increasing migration of the remaining elites abroad. decline in education and level of vocational training. Mass immigration of unskilled and culturally alien people. Islamization. Excess mortality, vaccine damage. Inflation. Disappearance of the transportation infrastructure. Overuse of social systems. Public debt. Reduction of freedom and more and more regulation through prohibitions. Reduction of sovereignty through the transfer of legislative and legal powers to supranational bodies, which are then no longer democratically controlled. Prosecution and criminalization of critical opinions through increasingly “creative” censorship. And, and, and.
Does anyone seriously think all this could go on forever with no repercussions? Or will it end and change for the better by itself? You don’t wake up one morning and realize: Oops, suddenly there’s a dictatorship out there! Or: Whoa, the world is on fire! It’s creeping processes that carry us there — although since Corona, things have been more or less galloping.
Anyone who accuses me here of cacophony, who calls for “optimism” in these times, who reproaches us for seeing and painting everything black and this constant calling out to Cassandra is just as frustrating as it promotes depression, I unfortunately have to reply: Wake up! Times are too serious to keep burying your head in the sand. Constructive pessimism is the optimism of our time. We’ve come to a point where everyone is either part of the solution or part of the problem.
Where silence and retreat into the apolitical are no longer options. In 2023, every individual is therefore encouraged to rebel, arouse, protest and make it clear within the scope of their individual possibilities in their environment that they are aware of the intentional ruin of their homeland and everything that is dear to us, and are no longer willing to watch. If this succeeds at least within a critical mass, then — and only then — the reversal process of healing can be initiated. This is certainly not to be expected from those who want destroy us. We don’t have much time left for that.
With this in mind, I wish you — in addition to personal happiness and health — a restless and alert year of 2023!

Afterword from the translator:
For many years now I’ve quoted the 18th-century Scotsman David Hume to anyone who’ll listen, to make them think for themselves about what has been happening all around us:
“It is seldom, that liberty of any kind is lost all at once. Slavery has so frightful an aspect to men accustomed to freedom, that it must steal upon them by degrees, and must disguise itself in a thousand shapes, in order to be received.”
Unfortunately the vast majority seemed not to have grasped the words or even a smidgen of their meaning, for they have all followed the narrative of the Judas Goat into the slaughter yard in various ways. Convenient consumerism has replaced real values. After all, it is nothing more than the fattening and the readying of the livestock for the slaughter. The butchers have been sharpening their knives to a razor-edge for quite some time now, and are ready.
Poor David Hume. His words were ignored as you can see by looking at Scotland today. Can anyone see any true Scots left there? I watched an old movie the other day on free to air TV, Geordie 1955, and I saw a country and a people that no longer exists. Very sad.
The Australian Olympics audience scenes in the movie also show a society and culture that is fast disappearing with mass migration from other cultures and American sodomite propaganda.
I agree with you.
On youtube you find videos showing the past and when I saw the videos of Vietnam era USA (California Dreaming Vietnam war) or music videos where the stars of the 30/40 like Eleanor Powell are dancing I know that our time is wrong in capital letters.
You see Scotland today being run by a ginger midget who tries to control everything and the cowed sheep we call people just keep taking it. Too bad there is not a modern day Edward the Longshanks, now there was a guy who knew how to make Scotland howl.
Well, the cowed sheep voted for her.
I’d be sorry to see the Scots leave the UK, not only because my grandmother was a MacKenzie! However they’d miss the subsidy from Westminster, which helps support their relatively generous welfare system, and which was meant to be temporary.
What was it that ole Longshanks once said? Oh yes of course, “The problem with Scotland is that is full of Scots”. Let the sheep have it and may the wolves feast like no tomorrow.
Technology has been a blessing and a curse. People now have become so dependent on technology that no other way of living is imaginable. Technoloy controls so many aspects of life. Phone, banking, shopping, communicating, driving, cameras everywhere, tracking chips, tracking cameras. It is easy now to exert the kind of control on populations that in the past would have been impossible. Now it is comply or risk having yourself cutoff from everything. It’s the lure of easy living, it’s the technolgy blues.
Thus do we put our heads in the technocratic noose.
Shut off electricity and we are back to the dark ages.
No, no, no. We’ll still have candles! Well, the PTB are getting people used to the idea of less electricity what with ‘rolling’ blackouts, appliances ‘smartly’ controlled by potentially an outside source. Just a matter of time till the sheep cede autonomy because it is easier than trying to resist. Certainly those living in cities will be the first to succumb.
Always remember, the 10 per centers always resist.
To the litany of escalation could be added food and energy shortages, mass surveillance, and gender insanity. And probably more. I truly believe that history shows this level of insane tyranny can only be, and ultimately will be, defeated in a kinetic confrontation, AKA violent physical war.
History says so time immortal.
