On Being a Compliant Drone

I’ve been specializing in European affairs, particularly the European migration crisis, for almost fifteen years. Even a cursory look at the migration issue tells us that the massive influx of uneducated third-worlders — most of them Muslims — are a net drain on the economies of the countries that host them. Even after many years of residence, unto the second and third generation, they consume more in social benefits and other state transfers than they pay into the treasury in the form of taxes. After Angela Merkel opened the floodgates to asylum seekers in 2015 the shortfall became even more apparent.

By now it is glaringly obvious that the State gains no fiscal advantage from the importation of the replacement population. The original rationale — that the newcomers would be needed to pay the taxes that would fund the care of the white native population after retirement — has become completely unsupportable. The migrants themselves will remain net consumers of state welfare benefits even as the original population ages into senescence.

Why, then, is the “refugees welcome” ideology still propagated with such fervor? Self-interest would seem advise taking the opposite tack. Why the continued push for mass immigration?

I used to wonder whether a form of pseudo-religious mania might be at work, some sort of collective suicidal madness. Or was it perhaps that the elites who foisted their migration policies on the populace had realized their earlier mistakes, but were unable to change course without risking their political careers?

In the last few years, however, I’ve come to a different conclusion. The Powers That Be don’t want to import producers; they want to import consumers. The production machine that is a modern Western economy requires a consumer base to buy all the stuff that keeps the system humming.

Productive workers aren’t as necessary to that system as they were fifty or sixty years ago. Automation has moved in and taken over many of the functions that had previously been performed by the lowly proletariat. Machines have made those workers redundant, but their patterns of consumption are necessary to keep the entire system operating at optimum capacity.

Bringing in ill-educated foreigners is necessary to make sure there are enough consumers to buy food, drink, and gewgaws, to use the electricity, to occupy the housing, and to keep the social workers employed. Thanks to automation, far fewer productively employed workers are needed nowadays to generate consumer goods. The magic of quantitative easing ensures that the State always has sufficient money to stuff into the pockets of welfare recipients, whether native or immigrant.

All Western nations are now governed to varying degrees by corporate fascism. Huge transnational corporations have a symbiotic relationship with elected political leaders and the permanent governing class. The elites who sit at the apex of this syndicalist pyramid become fabulously wealthy by vacuuming up just a small portion of the financial transactions generated by the process of production and consumption. Producers — whether human or mechanical — are needed for this process, but consumers are also an absolute necessity. Preferably consumers who spend every drachma that comes into their hands, and go deeply into high-interest debt to consume even more stuff.

As Artificial Intelligence becomes more and more sophisticated, fewer and fewer unskilled or low-skilled workers will be required. We are moving towards a future dominated by the unimaginably wealthy, who will employ a relatively small managerial class of administrators, engineers, and technicians. The only low-skilled workers needed will be personal servants and sexual playthings.

But the system will still require the lumpenproletariat as consumers. That’s where the compliant drones come in.

Does Germany Have a Life After the Coronamadness?

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Epoch Times:

“Reorganization case” Germany: Wolfgang Reitzle dreams of an “ideology-free new beginning”

Does Germany still have a chance to rise from the rubble of the pandemic like a phoenix from the ashes? Economic manager Wolfgang Reitzle says: “The potential in Germany is huge.” But there are many obstacles, after sixteen years of Angela Merkel. In an interview with Welt am Sonntag, Wolfgang Reitzle, long-time chairman of the supervisory board of the automotive supplier Continental and former CEO of Linde AG, spoke of his dream of the way Germany could be and develop in the future — and of the sad reality in which we currently live.

A new beginning — without ideology, “Let me just dream” — of a bipartisan consensus for an “ideology-free new beginning”. One thing is extremely important to him personally, according to the business manager: “We need a new, ideology-free energy and mobility policy.” The bureaucracy would have to be cut and the administration systematically digitized.

We need to trust in market forces again; we would have to reduce the state quota to under fifty percent and create a binding “ten-year plan for investments in sustainable infrastructure” — and the insight that should guide all of our actions should be “that prosperity also involves effort, and means performance.”

If you want to get the economy going again quickly after the pandemic, you will also have to give companies tax relief.

“The potential in Germany is huge,” says Wolfgang Reitzle. But a bitter reality stands in the way of his dream.

Appearance and reality

In Germany there is a discrepancy between appearance and reality: a defense budget of 47 billion euros, rifles that don’t fire, tanks that don’t run, and airplanes that don’t fly.

The problem can be seen particularly clearly in the federal capital. Reitzle calls it a dysfunctional city, a “failed state” — one of the worst-governed capitals of Europe.

When it comes to crime, they look the other way, allow squatting and the spread of Arab clan criminality. Berlin is not even able to “build an airport for our capital”. Michael Müller, the mayor, is responsible for the failure. He has been in the media for months, explaining to everyone how Corona management works, says the economist.

Spare No Expense to House the Culture-Enrichers

The following report discusses the exorbitant price tag for refugee housing in Berlin. Compare the figures with the construction cost for residential housing in Manhattan, which is roughly $3,300 per square meter. That’s somewhat more than the amounts given below for Berlin, but bear in mind that those German asylum units are modular or prefab — essentially shipping containers.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Unbelievable: Asylum accommodation in Berlin costs over €1,600 [$1,900] PER SQUARE METER!

While the mask affair is spreading, the capital ruled by red-red-green has a new mega construction scandal: Almost 50 “modular accommodations for refugees” (MUF) devour a total of more than a billion euros in construction and other costs ! According to the Senate, the production costs an incredible €1,600 to €2,600 [$3,100] per square meter — completely oversized and dubious costs for simple prefabricated buildings. With the monthly salary of a German taxpayer, one square meter of living space is created for people who for the most part are not even allowed to be here.

But the project is also legally questionable: “We have never experienced such a brazen abuse of special building rights as in Berlin in all of Germany,” says a lawyer. Meanwhile, there is even speculation about a demolition, because the accommodations are only allowed to be inhabited by asylum seekers and Berlin wants to transfer them to the regular housing market.

Geert Wilders: Immigration, Integration, the Budget, the Climate, and Other Election Topics

On Wednesday Dutch voters will go to the polls to cast their votes for members of the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of Parliament. For the last two months the Dutch populace has been afflicted with a COVID curfew, and according to this AP article, the Wuhan Coronavirus will be the single most important issue in the election.

Up until the Coronamadness hit, however, immigration was the main topic. Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV), is the candidate with the consistently strongest position against mass immigration into the Netherlands.

The following seven videos are a selection of recent debates and interviews featuring Geert Wilders. Many thanks to C for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

Come to Germany and Start a New Life on Welfare

Despite its longstanding reputation for technical excellence, Germany is no longer a magnet for foreign scientists and engineers. However, it’s Europe’s go-to place for lavish welfare benefits, as the mass influx of unskilled third-worlders attests.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Eldorado only for the unqualified and paperless: Germany is becoming less attractive to the highly qualified

The German economy is urgently dependent on “qualified specialists” from abroad, while at the same time well-trained specialists are leaving Germany and migrating abroad, and on top of that, paperless and predominantly male unskilled workers from incompatible cultures flow to Germany, who are sold to the citizens as specialists, but who are more likely to immigrate to the welfare programs

Years ago, the management consultancy Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the online job platform StepStone and the career network The Network started a large-scale survey to determine the attractiveness that a nation radiates to qualified employees on an international level: Germany ranks fourth, after the USA, Canada and Australia. (More on Welt.de — Article in the archive)

Germany lost its popularity among skilled workers in 2020; obviously you can see a connection with Corona, but in truth, other reasons are more likely: high tax rates, social charges and energy prices, high rents and other high levies, the bureaucracy and sometimes run-down cities: that is truly not a place of longing for the highly qualified.

And that is Germany, too: an army of millions of unemployed, the quality of the education system has been declining for years, pupils and students for the most part barely meeting the expectations of the economy, but more and more low-wage workers for low-level jobs.

Highly qualified people tend to steer clear of Germany, but at least Germany has not lost its attractiveness for all those who should feel comfortable in the welfare system, according to Katrin Göring-Eckhardt [former communist, member of the Greens].

Better Watch What You Say About Mutti

Heinz Hermann Thiele was a prominent German businessman, a billionaire — one of the richest men in Germany — and the largest shareholder in Lufthansa. He died suddenly last Tuesday at the age of 79. I haven’t been able to find a cause of death listed for him, but there may be something about it in German.

However, I do know that Mr. Thiele was a vocal public critic of Chancellor Angela Merkel, as the video clip below demonstrates. I have no idea whether that fact has anything to do with his sudden demise.

Wokist Waycism — May We Rest in Piece (sic)

In the essay below our Israeli correspondent MC tackles some of the thorny issues concerning the COVID-19 vaccine.

A few days ago, in an unrelated context, I wrote the following about the Corona hysteria:

We know only a few facts about the “pandemic”. We know that the Powers That Be are going to extraordinary lengths to convince us that their narrative is true, and that it is the only possible narrative, and everything else is a “conspiracy theory”. We also know that dissenting opinions and alternative information are being suppressed by any and all means necessary.

This creates a vacuum of real, reliable information. It’s an environment in which conspiracy theories flourish. Yet, the two main facts I cited above demonstrate that there really is a conspiracy of some sort, although it’s next to impossible to determine its exact composition and goals.

So we are of necessity conspiracy theorists. As long as the information vacuum persists, there is no other way for the intellect to engage what little information is available to it.

Wokist Waycism — May we rest in piece (sic)

by MC

A few years ago I wrote a piece about who benefits from the Holocaust. Despite the adverse comments, I still see the intervening history as supporting the idea that wokist waycism is rooted in a distortion of Holocaust issues, and that because of this, we Jews need to ‘man up’ and step down from the Holocaust pedestal, which has given birth to something far more sinister and which we should endeavour to fight.

We are all racists. The fear of the stranger is built-in, and the flames of that fear can be massaged to the extent that we abuse people for not wearing a mask. Waycism is about the left’s obsession with skin colour; true racism is much more about fear of the unusual.

Early Nazi propaganda portrayed Jews as dirty, and a health risk to the average upright (Aryan) German citizen, and it may have been true in some cases (curious, however, because Judaism demands bathing and washing rituals on an almost daily basis).

This last year should tell us how easily all this can be achieved, and now we are beginning to see those who do not want to take the vaccine being excluded from society in exactly the same way as Jews were from Nazi society. No vaccine certificate, no job. Instead of a tattooed number on the arm, a digital certificate on the smart phone.

But it is not a vaccine. It is a ‘gene therapy’, a genetic modification of the body to produce anti-spike proteins and the associated antibodies. It is untested; it is thus experimental and is being long-term tested here in Israel. This gene therapy does not stop the Covid, it just treats the symptoms. It was initially tested on healthy (not at risk from Covid death) people. The long-term impact of the therapy is unknown. Will the production of proteins and antibodies just switch off in a few months, a few years, never? We don’t know.

But in many ways, all this fades into insignificance compared to the impact of the worldwide propaganda and the gagging of truth and adverse opinion, and the Nazi-style branding of the ‘unvaccinated’ as dirty and disease-ridden.

We can recognize this phenomena in history. Stalin used the kulak as his excuse to exterminate millions in the Holodomor, and Hitler used Jews and Slavs (untermenschen) as focal points of fear, inciting hatred and street violence.

We all know where this leads.

The Satan of the Bible is a manipulator, the most subtle of the beasts. His aim is to replace Yah, and to do this he must substitute himself for Yah in the minds of men.

Genesis 3 tells us that at issue is exactly who defines “good and evil”. Is evil telling lies, or is it telling truth that is considered to be ‘hate speech’ (usually defined by the liars).

Philosophically speaking, ‘godship’ is the ability to define right and wrong on behalf of the client people group, and this is the object of the latest power grab: The World Economic Forum want a ‘reset’. They want to reset our perception of good and evil to accord with their view of how their utopia should be.

A hundred and sixty years ago, many God-fearing gentlemen did not consider slavery to be evil. They would see “hewers of wood and carriers of water” in the context of “cursed art thou Canaan”, and looked no further. A few did, and discovered that Yahovah was a God who brought people out of chattel slavery. (Genesis 9 v 25)

Good, evil, and money (and power) are inextricably bound together. We are told that the [the love of] money is the root of all evil. And for those gentlemen of slavery, the whole of their well-being and ‘superiority’ were based on chattel slavery and the economics of that slavery.

But there is a new slavery: Big Pharma slavery.

We have been taught that Big Pharma can come up with cures for many, many diseases and problems (except the ones I seem to have). But the history tells us that the pharmaceutical industry has so shaped the market that medicine has become a vicious circle of drugs, and then more drugs to treat the side effects of the first drugs.

Those of you who take statins (currently top of the drug hit-parade) should read this. And to the Big Pharma shills that will descend on us defending their master’s voracious habits at $3.50 a comment — this is not my study, or GoV’s; it is a National Institutes of Health document.

But worse is to come. There has been talk of vaccine coercion for several years, and there was a time when smallpox vaccine was mandatory, even in my lifetime.

France Resists Deindustrialization

Today the French government published its defense in the court case brought by several environmental groups claiming that the French government is not keeping its commitments to the 2015 Paris agreement.

Many thanks to JM for translating this article from the French news site Contrepoints:

It’s official: the Minister for the Ecological and Solidarity Transition declared (according to the Paris Administrative Court on February 3, 2021) that renewable energies do not contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, in a “defense” recorded on June 23, 2020… and that the State has not made public.

The French therefore have official confirmation that the transition from nuclear to intermittent electric energies (wind power, photovoltaic) has no impact on the reduction of CO2 emissions and therefore does not make it possible to fight against global warming, and even less to achieve the objectives defined by the Paris climate agreements in 2015.

Wind turbines are even likely to increase greenhouse gas emissions in France!

For 15 years there have been many ministers for the energy transition (Corinne Lepage, Dominique Voynet, Yves Cochet, Delphine Bato, Nicolas Hulot, François de Rugy, Barbara Pompili), from political ecology. They are responsible for this dismal result and for appointing the still-active architects of this fiasco to key positions.

Rather than suing the French state, the Hulot Foundation should ask for the sanctioning of the promoters of the inefficient energy model based on wind and sun, in particular Mr. Hulot, Minister of the Environment for the period 2017-2018.

Because the real scandal of the Affair of the Century is to deindustrialize France in favor of countries increasing their consumption of coal (China) or gas (Germany), and to destroy the nuclear industry (Fessenheim) to replace it with recoverable energy and intermittent renewables from wind and sun emitting more carbon. All of this for the benefit of mostly foreign investors and at the expense of taxpayers. [emphasis added]

M1911

The following essay by our Israeli correspondent MC serves as an appropriate companion to H. Numan’s piece posted earlier tonight. It’s good to have persepctives from abroad on what’s happening here in the Nation Formerly Known as the United States of America.

American Socialism is like playing Russian Roulette with an automatic pistol: there are just too many individualists and too many pistols for a quiet transition to the average socialist utopia.

We have loaded the Biden bullet into the magazine of our 1911 pattern Colt along with a few blanks, and we put it to our collective temple thinking that the blanks are benign.

So here we are, all set. What chance do we have of surviving?

The USA is on the brink of a full-scale Fascist bullet in the bonce, but through ignorance and misdirection, they are unaware that even the blanks are dangerous. One can, if one is stupid enough, play Russian roulette with a revolver and get away with it most of the time, but a semi-automatic pistol is going to kill you every time you pull the trigger (sic), blank or ball.

I lived under socialism for decades; I saw it creep and corrode society until it destroyed the mechanisms that allowed the poor to prosper and the intelligent to be fulfilled.

It starts with education, the process of giving men and woman an asset that they can sell in the employment marketplace, an asset that does not go away, and can be sold and resold on a daily basis.

I profited enormously by being selected for an academic education, and from being groomed as a manager of men, as an intellectual capable of self-learning. But that door, the one that I came through, was eventually slammed shut by socialists, socialists who wanted the utopian equality of outcomes rather than the achievable equality of opportunity.

My paternal grandfather was a coalminer from Yorkshire (the other one, the Jewish one, was a Stoker in the Royal Navy). The miner was a convener of the ILP (Independent Labour Party); whereas the ‘Labour’ party was a country club for rich gentlemen who could not make it in the Liberal or Tory parties of the time, the ILP wanted to get real actual working men and women into Parliament. Arthur, my grandfather, believed in education, and he got his four sons and one of his two daughters through to ‘school certificate’ (high school graduation). My father’s education was interrupted by the War, but his younger brother went on to get a bachelor’s degree, unheard of at the time.

Socialism, with its roots in 19th-century romanticism, cannot admit to being wrong. Pragmatically, we all have different IQs and abilities, but within the socialist romance we are all born equal. Romance is a genre where outcomes follow predictable and desirable courses and the heroes and heroines all live happily ever after, but in politics, romanticism is dangerous, and the outcomes can be dire.

‘Equality’ is always a hard and elusive master. The romantics pictured a happy state led by an elite (themselves) of ‘virtuous’ administrators. A lovely comfortable picture — for cows and sheep!

Joseph, he of the ‘technicolor’ dreamcoat, was set apart by his father who recognized his potential. But his brothers just saw what they perceived as his, Joseph’s, arrogance. So they sold him into Egyptian slavery, they squandered their greatest family asset through petty jealousy.

But Joseph was blessed by Yahovah, and as such, he would have succeeded in any situation. His brothers would have prospered greatly if they had been a little less self-obsessed.

Imagine, if the brothers had revered Joseph instead of despising him, then Egypt would have come begging to them for food rather than their having to go to Egypt.

I lived in South Africa during the final years of Apartheid. It was an eye opener. Whilst apartheid stifled growth, it preserved identities and allowed cultural interaction at a level that was ‘defined’ by the idea that high walls made good neighbours; Africans were allowed to defecate in the gutter, whites were not. Apartheid has inbuilt elements of paternalism and socialism; as well as preserving cultural integrity, it gave a defined role to the Afrikaner (Boer = farmer).

You Have Less Than a Year

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this follow-up to his previous essay about the dystopian regime that now governs the Former United States since the Investiture of the Puppet last month.

You have less than a year

by H. Numan

Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve just witnessed a coup. I wrote about it a few days ago. Plenty of people still don’t understand that the rules of the game have changed. Permanently. So I’ll expand on my previous essay, in the hope that the message gets through. You have less than a year to correct the situation. This is a grim and very dark essay. If you can’t tolerate it, sorry. Better read something else. Don’t continue reading.

Let’s start with the coup. It certainly wasn’t a revolution. Revolutions are usually more violent or come with force to some extent. The Democrat Party didn’t do that. They planned, many years in advance, a fraud to gain full control. It was no accident that mail-in votes and harvested ballots gave Biden, now president for (the remainder of his) life, the presidency. The vote, in general terms, has been diluted for many years. You should have seen this coming — but nobody did. It’s not a coincidence that the DNC, wherever possible, wanted no ID checks and more ways to vote. Not because voter ID is racist, but because more people can vote the ‘right’ way. They have fought with success to give everybody they need a vote. Including dead people. The trick worked. Suddenly the bombshell exploded. Now it is too late.

Not really too late, but you have to act. Fast. REALLY fast! You do have an advantage over Nazi Germany, but a very small one. Biden and his DNC are not Hitler and the NSDAP. Hitler didn’t hesitate for a second to use extreme force, and built many concentration camps. As quickly as possible. Given their background, that is something Biden and the DNC will hesitate to do.

Why this coup? Well, despite my dislike for your Democrat Party, they are not Nazis. Socialist in some way? No doubt. But not — yet — true international socialists. At the moment the old party hacks control the party. All they wanted was to be in power forever. Now they are. Their major problem is to remain in power forever. And that requires a real socialist, or — as they will describe it — democratic policy. You have less than a year to stop it.

Biden is now in full control of your parliament, both houses. That means he can — and bloody well will! — write any kind of legislation he wants. Biden himself is not a Hitler. More like one of Hitler’s more slippery henchmen, like Martin Bormann. Always hovering in the background, filling his pockets. Just enough in the limelight to be noticed and to be powerful enough to hand out favors. But he definitely is no Hitler. Like Hitler, Biden will have to consolidate his power. That is a process he can complete in about one year. That’s all the time you have left. Less than a year. After that, better sign up for DNC membership. If they will still accept you.

Please don’t parrot empty meaningless slogans, such as: they can pry my guns from my cold dead hands. Very few people will actually do that. Pretty soon a new mass shooting incident will happen. No need to arrange for one; mass shootings happen several times every year in the USA. All the DNC has to do is wait for the next one. Then Harris Biden will act decisively and ban most handguns. Just about everybody will hand in their guns, without a fuss. That’s what happened in Australia in 1996. The government said: That’s enough. No more guns! It was enough, and there are no more guns in Australia. Why is it an empty slogan? Because most people like to live. Given the choice between handing in firearms or facing at least a very lengthy jail term, they choose handing in their weapons. If only because they have a family to take care of.

That is exactly what will happen, in a few months’ time. What about those ‘pry my gun’ people? Well, America is not Australia, and no longer democratic. America is now a Democratic Republic. Which means your police will simply send in a SWAT team, and blast them to kingdom come. Live on TV. It will be all over the media. Not as martyrs, but as brave police officers getting rid of dangerous hysterical fascists. The remainder of the pry-my-gun people will get the message and quietly turn in their guns. Willingly even, as the media will go apes**t about really dangerous fascists refusing to obey Big Biden the law.

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part V)

The essay below is the sixth in a series by our English correspondent Seneca III. Previously: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3A, Part 3B, Part 4.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part V A — Dragons

“It has been frequently remarked, that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not, of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend, for their political constitutions, on accident and force.”

— Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, Pub. J. & A. McLean, March-May 1788.

This is a period in history when the entire system under which we live is under attack. From within, disasters real and imagined, a deluge of disinformation and endemic corruption across the complete spectrum of the legislative, the executive and their super-wealthy bag carriers alters the whole perception of the present and future world around us, causing distress, fear, apprehension and even feral hatred for those who are bringing it about.

The worldview encompassed by each generation is developed and formed by the sources and veracity of information available at the time and according to which socio-political environment (community) the individual is exposed to and educated in. These sources and environments change regularly. Whilst it should be incumbent upon every thinking person to re-evaluate from time to time, this is not a particularly common practice, as original ‘indoctrinations’, for want of a better word, are very hard to dislodge or to pass on. Hence the so common in-family disagreements between generations that occur predominantly when the younger generation is in its teens and early twenties.

For example, an intergenerational battle now in progress in many households concerns the sly imposition of ‘gender dysphoria’ theory on young and old minds alike. In reality a very small percentage of gender dysphoriacs[1] are naturally transgender, but in the vast majority the condition has been deliberately induced for the purpose of destabilising the nuclear family unit.

The diagnostic label ‘gender identity disorder’ (GID) was used until 2013, but with the release of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5), the condition was renamed to remove the stigma associated with the term disorder. This is yet another example of muddying the waters in the cause of ‘Wokeness’ even before that counter-reproductive and societally destructive concept was imposed upon us.

Family activities aside, historically speaking major happenings, tectonic shifts in human life and affairs, do not appear to be measurably cyclic, but random, sometimes with subtle warning signs that tend to be ignored, and sometimes without warnings but with sudden, stunning ferocity. The great tsunami of 6,000 years ago that wiped out at least half of the small number of human inhabitants on the island of Britain and changed the shape of its East coast topography for many leagues inland is one prime example. The far better known and more recent Black Death which resulted in the deaths of 75-200 million people in Eurasia and North Africa is another, and both were natural disasters initiated by events beyond the hand and ken of man.

Between those two events, at the onset of the early Iron Age between 1200 and 1150 BC, an extinction event occurred, that of the late Bronze Age culture in and around the Mediterranean basin, an event the reasons for which remain open to debate, although there is some consensus that the causes were an unfortunate conjunction of both manmade and natural events.

But time moves on, and in the 20th century, still within the living memory of some, two world wars burst upon us, the first one driven by the arrogance of imperial dynastic power players, and the second by the inevitable consequences of national socialist ideology allied again with an unquenched thirst for conquest — motives easily ascribed to the proponents of the beguilingly deceptive memes ‘Build Back Better’ and ‘The Great Reset’, which are nothing more than totalitarian social re-engineering resurrected as a technological art form.

A recent modern example is the arrival of the Cambodian Khmer Rouge in 1975, its Year Zero project and the huge genocide that followed, which to this day remains totally inexplicable to those who do not understand that socialism in any of its many guises always ends up consuming itself and all about it.

Two further examples from the 20th century are second[2] five-year plan in Mao’s PRC (1958-1972) which resulted in 18-45 million deaths, making it the greatest famine in human history. Bear in mind that the People’s Republic of China is neither of or for the people and nor is it a Republic in any sense other than it doesn’t have an absolute monarch at its head (well, not in name, anyway).

Also, in the middle of the second five year plan, there emerged the Red Guards, a mass student-led paramilitary social movement mobilized and guided by Chairman Mao Zedong in 1966-1967 during the first phase of the Cultural Revolution, which he had instituted. According to a Red Guard leader, the movement’s aims were as follows:

1848 And All That

Some of my friends sit around every evening
And they worry about the times ahead,
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference
And the promise of an early bed.

— Elvis Costello, from “Radio, Radio”

January 6 was a sobering moment. For many of us it was not unexpected, but it was sobering nonetheless.

We have finally reached the End of the Republic. The results of future elections will lie within parameters established by the Powers That Be. There will be no more successful “dark horse” candidates; the system has been rigged to prevent them.

On a related note, Sundance at Conservative Tree House has joined the dreamers at Power Line, although his desperate optimism takes a somewhat different tack: he proposes the founding of a new political party led by Donald Trump, which would siphon off most Republican voters, as well as a big chunk of Democrats and independents.

It’s a nice idea, and it might have worked before the widespread adoption of Dominion voting machines. But after 2020, how does such a party go about actually winning an election? The machinery to prevent that possibility is already in place. Nobody can get elected without the approval of the Deep State. Which means it will be the UniParty — Democrats plus safe (neutered) Republicans — from here on out.

We have unfortunately entered the era of TINVOWOOT: There is no voting our way out of this. We’ve used up three out of our four boxes — soap, ballot, and jury — and there’s only one left.

There has been a cavalcade of “conservatives” eager to denounce Donald Trump and the angry crowd at the Capitol. Their general theme is that “violence solves nothing.” How easily they have forgotten the means by which the Patriots of 1776 threw off the yoke of King George III and established a constitutional republic! If these modern-day talking heads had their way, we’d still be sending politely-worded lists of grievances to the queen and her ministers.

Meanwhile the Left and the media (but I repeat myself) have characterized Wednesday’s events as an “insurrection”. Well… Except for the cops, everybody at the Capitol that day was unarmed. How would our esteemed progressive brethren describe a real insurrection if one ever broke out?

Given the level of anger on the patriotic Right, some sort of future kinetic action is a distinct possibility. Whether we’re heading into a full-fledged Boogaloo or not is an open question. A shrewd, charismatic leader would seem a prerequisite for that to happen, and now that Donald Trump has abdicated the position, there’s no one else on the horizon who fits the description. For all I know, this simmering political cauldron may yet cool down and accept the New Normal that has been prepared for it.

Or maybe not. It’s still early days, so it’s hard to tell.

Regardless of how kinetic things get, what seems likely is a concerted effort to crack down on dissent. Up until now the Left has relied on the private sector — Big Tech, social media companies, and major employers — to suppress doubleplus ungood opinions held by deplorable citizens. We can expect that praxis to change now that the Woke brigades control the entire apparatus of state, especially given the public statements from their numerous spokesbeings about the need to silence us.

The past two months have proved that the Constitution is a worthless scrap of paper. Nothing remains to stop the permanent government from passing whatever laws it deems necessary to suppress “misinformation”, “intolerance”, “extremism”, “hate speech”, “white supremacy”, and all the other terms used to describe publicly expressed thoughts that run counter to the Narrative.

I’ve never used social media, and I have no employer, so up until now the storm has passed me by. When the Harris administration is fully ripened, however, I expect the government to enact new laws or regulations requiring ISPs to close down independent “hate sites” like this one. When that happens, the torches will be extinguished here at the Gates, and I will be out of business.

Depending on how frisky things get, the dénouement could happen sooner, or it could happen later. But that time will eventually come. The darkness will flow out of Mordor and cover everything, and the armies of orcs will march against us.

A Christmas Present for Businesses: Bankruptcy

The German government’s Coronavirus measures, when added to the existing burden of its “climate change” policy, have been devastating for small and medium-sized businesses.

Alice Weidel: Unemployed thanks to the government’s lockdown crisis

The wave of insolvencies is rolling in — and not only hotels and restaurants are affected; it also extends to a wide variety of medium-sized companies. For example, the automotive supplier TQM is deep in the red. If the federal government laid the foundation for bankruptcy with its ideological climate policy, this has now been accelerated so much by the shutdown policy of the same government that the company has to file for bankruptcy now. Or the Klier hairdressing chain: where lockdowns keep doors locked, but rents and personnel costs continue, such companies quickly run out of steam.

Traditional companies are not spared: The most recent lockdown causing Christmas markets to be canceled nationwide meant that a manufacturer of Christmas decorations, Käthe-Wohlfahrt, had to file for bankruptcy. The family business, founded in 1964, currently employs 300 people, all of whom are looking to an uncertain future.

The list could be continued indefinitely — and shows that not only the lockdown policy of the federal government is fatal, but also its rescue policy. Because while Lufthansa, for example, can count on generous help from the state, this does not apply to most medium-sized companies.

People from retail or gastronomy who have lost their jobs because of the Corona measures no longer understand the world. How can it be that the state takes the air to breathe from the middle class and, on the other hand, finances lavish salaries in the subsidized aviation industry? The federal government has lost all measure in its headless lockdown.

In the end we must return to the social market economy, in which citizens in need are supported and competition is not distorted by state intervention in the market process. Protecting risk groups is the top priority of a federal government, but with its opposite chaos policy it is leading the country to the brink of ruin and the people into poverty.
