Germany is Looking at the Chinese Model

Effective in Climate Protection

Ministry of Education is considering social point system based on the Chinese model for Germany

In a study commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Education, one of six future scenarios is the introduction of a social point system based on the Chinese model. Jobs and study places then depend on social commitment and a small ecological footprint.

Orientation for the “world of tomorrow” is what the Federal Ministry of Education wants to offer with the “Foresight” (Vorausschau) campaign. For this purpose, six future scenarios have been devised in a commissioned “value study”, which researchers will discuss there. In addition to the “European Way” and “Ecological Regionalization”, there is also the “The Bonus System” scenario. The point is that every person receives an individual social score, which should play a decisive role in the allocation of jobs or university places, for example. It is a social point system, as it is currently being tested in China. However, this scenario does not serve as a dark dystopia — neutral, almost positive, the effects are shown and weighed up.

The paper by the Federal Ministry of Education states: “For certain behavior, points can be collected in the point system operated by the state (e.g. volunteering, caring for relatives, organ donations, provision for old age, traffic behavior, carbon footprint). In addition to social recognition, collecting points also has advantages in everyday life (e.g. shorter waiting times for certain courses).”

The approval of the law among the population would increase through “the dynamics of climate change”. The system is in fact successful in this area: “This generated pressure to act to counteract, whereby a points system turned out to be an efficient control mechanism for dealing with the consequences of climate change (e.g. by scoring the ecological footprint). The ‘polluter pays’ principle was made transparent through the point system. In addition, given the good economic situation, the point system proved to be a suitable instrument for the labor market, which is characterized by a shortage of skilled workers and workers,” it says.

In the year 2030, the social point system will then only be fundamentally questioned by a minority: “The point system will meet with approval from a majority of the population in the 2030s, as many feel that it has a binding orientation function for a more complex and differentiated society occupied by different social groups. At the same time, in Germany in the 2030s, the point system as a forecasting and control tool was gradually anchoring new norms in everyday life.” The social point system would obviously also be profitable for democracy. The state sets incentives “for activity in civil society or political organizations, as this is conducive to pluralistic discourse and is seen as the basis of the social evaluation system. Only those who are active here are able to get involved in social decision-making.”

The Clueless Clucking Clan

MC’s latest essay concerns the intersection of Racism, Woke ideology, and the Corona “pandemic”.

The Clueless Clucking Clan

by MC

I am an anti-vaxxer. I have spent hours of study, looking at the benefits of vaccines, and also the risks associated with vaccines, and the effectiveness of vaccines — I have also followed the money…

In my opinion, it is not a pretty picture.

My oldest son had a febrile fit following on from an MMR injection (he is now 40) — he survived, and in spite of some small personality changes, he was OK.

It was my sister-in-law who warned us about the MMR Jab and its dubious history (the first version was withdrawn after adverse side-effects were reported). My wife and I had argued over having the jab for our son; unfortunately, I won.

I would encourage all parents to do the research for themselves, here is a good place to start.

If I wanted to break the Constitution of the USA I would have to choose my point of attack very carefully; I would need to get the People to want to break it, to be so fearful of outcomes as to voluntarily submit to destroying individual choice for the benefit of the ‘group’.

What could be better, then, than a ‘Satan Bug‘ and a vaccine that ‘must’ be administered to all for it to be ‘safe’ and effective and provide ‘salvation’?

It is not white supremacy as such which is the problem, after all, almost all of the original communists were white (and mostly male — Kollontai and Luxemburg being the exceptions). Most of those who fought against slavery were white, and most of those who dreamt up ideas of individual liberty and freedom were also white.

It is ironic that dead white men are also behind the wokism that so besets the modern USA and most of the rest of the world, and one might even think that any intelligent non-white wokista would smell a rat…

Imagine a modern implementation of the post-bellum Ku Klux Klan, but designed to support minority non-white interests instead of defeated ‘white’ interests. What would it look like? It seems to me that the Democrat party has once more scraped through the bottom of their barrel of dirty tricks and come up with an inverted KKK clone — lets call it the CCC.

The assassination of President Lincoln created political chaos, especially as he had chosen a Democrat as his running mate Vice President in the hope of some sort of reconciliation. President Trump was not assassinated as such, but a majority of Americans believe that there was election fraud, and that Sleepy Joe is just not legitimate.

The reactions of the Democrats to the Arizona election audit has convinced me that there is something to hide here. Instead of welcoming an audit as an honest winner would do, the Democrats are squirming like a child who has had an ‘accident’.

Wokism is pure racism and is Nazism in drag. It will soon turn lethal if not scotched. The political buildup that led to Adolf Hitler started with a ‘red/green’ alliance; The socialism of German Workers’ Party (DAP) combined with the ‘volkism’ of the Thule, Vril and Wandervogel pseudo-religious cults gave us the NSDAP and many millions dead.

SARS, Gain of Function, COVID, and the Vax: A Timeline

MissPiggy compiled the following timeline for our skype group. I’m not going to tell you what to think about all this; you can easily draw your own conclusions.

2002

November: University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC) researcher Ralph Baric publishes a “breakthrough work” in gain-of-function research (studies that alter pathogens to make them more transmissible or deadly), describing the creation of a synthetic clone of a natural mouse coronavirus.

November: China’s Guangdong province reports the first case of “atypical pneumonia” (later labeled as SARS).

2003

October 28: A paper by the Baric research group at UNC describes their synthetic recreation of the “previously undescribed” SARS coronavirus. (Writing in 2020, a scientist states, “The speed of the Baric group illustrates how quickly a qualified team of virologists can create a synthetic clone from a natural virus, and therefore make genetic modifications to it. Moreover, that was back in 2003. Today, a qualified laboratory can repeat those steps in a matter of weeks.”)

2011

December 30: Dr. Fauci promotes gain-of-function research on bird flu viruses, arguing that the research is worth the risk. The risks worry other “seasoned researchers.”

2012

Christine Grady, wife of Anthony Fauci since 1985, becomes head of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, opening up the possibility of numerous conflicts of interest concerning vaccines, HIV and COVID-19. Grady previously served in the Department of Bioethics as an investigator (2004-2012), senior staff bioethicist (1996-2004) and head of the Section on Human Subjects Research (1998-2014). Like her husband, Grady has made HIV a central career focus, including stints on the Scientific Advisory Board of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (which Fauci helped launch), as a paid consultant for the WHO and UNAIDS and, in 1987-1988, as a staffer for President Reagan’s Commission on the HIV Epidemic. Grady’s 1995 book is titled The Search for an AIDS Vaccine. Fauci, who became NIAID director in 1984 under Reagan, holds a number of HIV vaccine-related patents.

April 20: Baylor College researchers publish their evaluation of four vaccine candidates for SARS, concluding that “Caution in proceeding to application of a SARS-CoV vaccine in humans is indicated.”

May: The 194 Member States of the World Health Assembly endorse the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP), led by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in collaboration with NIAID, WHO, Gavi, UNICEF and others. Dr. Fauci is one of five members on the GVAP’s Leadership Council.

October: Fauci writes article in the American Society for Microbiology saying “gain of function” benefits outweigh the risks.

2013

May 7: Email from Kary Mullis to the widow of boxer Tommy Morrison, whose career and life were destroyed by an “HIV test,” and who litigated ferociously for years, against test manufacturers. Dr. Mullis wrote on May 7, 2013:

“PCR detects a very small segment of the nucleic acid which is part of a virus itself. The specific fragment detected is determined by the somewhat arbitrary choice of DNA primers used which become the ends of the amplified fragment.”

“If things were done right, ‘infection’ would be a far cry from a positive PCR test.”

“PCR is a needle in a haystack technology that can be extremely misleading in the diagnosis of infectious diseases.”

2014

Merieux (former employer of Moderna CEO) is instrumental in creating high-security P4 Lab that opened in Wuhan in 2014.

Dr. Deborah Birx takes the helm of PEPFAR (the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief), which Dr. Fauci helped launch (in 2003) and which benefits from generous Gates Foundation support. Birx and Fauci are long-time allies, having worked together during the early years of AIDS and sharing overlapping career paths.

October 7: National Institutes of Health (NIH) director Francis Collins announces a “new phase of cooperation” between NIH and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, including partnering for vaccine development.

October 17: U.S. funding of SARS to create a biological weapon is paused due to the extreme risk of a pandemic. However, the pause allows agencies within the U.S. government to continue funding if they determined “the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.”

Vox: “China Must Pay”

I reported on Friday about remarks made in Parliament by Santiago Abascal, the leader of the Spanish anti-immigration party Vox. Mr. Abascal was vehement in his denunciation of China for its role in unleashing the Wuhan Coronavirus upon the world.

Below is a video made by Vox demanding that China pay for the damage caused by COVID-19. Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

What About Taiwan?

Our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan takes an eastward field trip to investigate an urgent issue: the status of Taiwan.

What about Taiwan?

by H. Numan

For the last couple of months there has been a lot of attention over Taiwan. Now even more, with a senile president in the White House. The Democrat Party is busy replacing senior military officers with more party-compliant officers. Biden is mounting the red mule of war. The rhetoric is cranking up. Will China invade Taiwan? Lots of comparisons can be found on YouTube. They compare the strength of China with that of Taiwan. It seems like an invasion is imminent. How can Taiwan possibly defend itself? The answer may surprise you: yes, easily!

First, let’s have a look at a possible invasion. In order to invade Taiwan, China needs a US president busy elsewhere, and preferably a blithering idiot. They couldn’t have asked for a better president. Not only is Biden senile, he is — almost certainly — bought and paid for by China. Remember the laptop you don’t hear about? Biden’s son Hunter also visited China, and did naughty things with young Chinese girls. We don’t know that for sure, as the laptop is ‘under investigation’. Given Hunter’s track record, you can safely assume the Chinese taped everything. Supposing daddy doesn’t comply, it can and will be leaked. This year an invasion is out of the question. Why? You can only attack for part of the year, from May until November. For the remainder of the year the weather doesn’t allow for it. Next year, then?

Don’t be fooled; the People’s Republic of China is not going to invade Taiwan. All comparisons I have seen — a lot! — often forget to mention or take into consideration:

Numbers don’t say much. Yes, if Taiwan had a land border with China, they would have been a Chinese province 72 years ago. Only Taiwan is an island, 180 km away from the mainland. That’s six times the width of the English Channel. The Chinese navy is just as experienced and dangerous as the German Kriegsmarine: not enough to successfully invade. The Germans couldn’t do it across a 30 km stretch of sea; the Chinese can’t cross a 180 km stretch of sea.

You have to know that the most dangerous operations any military can perform are airborne drops or naval invasions in hostile well defended territory. That’s why paratroopers and marines by default are the very best units in the military. They have to be.

Unlike what you often read about the Maginot Line, it did exactly what it was build for: the Germans couldn’t cross it. Their solution was to circumvent it, and attack through the Ardennes Forest and the Low Countries. The commander in chief of France was Maurice Gamelin at that time. He was unwittingly helping the Germans by sending his entire reserve forces towards Breda in The Netherlands. They never got there. On the way they had to retreat back to Dunkirk. When the French government told Churchill they didn’t have any reserves anymore, that was the reason. They were taken prisoner or evacuated at Dunkirk.

Now, Taiwan has been fortified massively for 72 years. You don’t hear a lot about it, but Communist China has tried everything possible to take over Taiwan for 72 years. And failed miserably. There is a problem when you apply maximum political pressure for 72 years nonstop. You can’t apply more pressure. All you can do is invade. Which the Chinese won’t do; it simply can’t be done.

The Maginot Line could be circumvented. That’s not possible with Taiwan. The Taiwanese army doesn’t have the very best military equipment in the world. They don’t even need it (though they often and loudly complain about it). All they need is good enough equipment. They have plenty of that. And lots of more than good enough equipment.

Yes, they have the oldest submarines in service, anywhere on the world. Used primarily for training. But the boat itself doesn’t matter much. It still is fiendishly difficult to find a submarine that doesn’t want to be found. What really matters are the torpedoes and fire-control systems. They are not the most modern, but more than enough to do the job.

The Chinese navy is big, but not big enough to cover an invasion fleet over 180 km of treacherous seas. Of course they can use civilian ships to carry most of the invasion force. China has plenty of those. However, the difference between navy and civilian ships is that navy ships are designed not to sink as fast as civilian ships. They have usually stronger hulls, more redundant systems and more watertight compartments.

Roundup of COVID and Vax News

Below are four videos from Italy, Spain, and France covering varying aspects of the Wuhan Coronavirus “pandemic” and its associated “vaccines”.

The first video features Dr. Barbara Balanzoni, who is an Italian anesthetist and surgeon, and also has a law degree. She served as a medical officer in the Italian army with KFOR in Kosovo. There’s an interesting story about her time in the service: back in 2013 she disobeyed orders to save the life of a pregnant cat, and was tried in a military court for gross insubordination. Most of the news about her case is in Italian, but if I understand it correctly, she was eventually acquitted.

In the following video Dr. Balanzoni discusses the case of an 18-year-old girl in Genoa who needed neurosurgery for a blood clot in the brain after receiving the experimental AstraZeneca medical treatment.

Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The second video is a later report on the same 18-year-old girl that Dr. Balanzoni was talking about. The emergency neurosurgery to treat her blood clot was not enough to save the young patient, and she died while in the hospital in Genoa.

Once again, thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The third video is a report on the “vaccine hesitancy” of French teenagers, who are reluctant to be subjected to any of the experimental mRNA treatments to prevent COVID-19.

The Origins of the Wuhan Coronavirus

The French virologist Luc Montagnier led the team at the Pasteur Institute that discovered HIV in 1983. In 2008 Professor Montagnier was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in recognition of his work. The following video about the origin of SARS-CoV-2 includes remarks by Prof. Montagnier, who assigns ultimate responsibility to the Pasteur Institute. The professor also emphasizes that it is not COVID-19 that is dangerous, but the “vaccine” against it.

(Luc Montagnier has been featured here several times since the Coronamadness began. See posts here, here, and here.)

A Little Bird Told Me

Our Hungarian correspondent László sends his analysis of a news report on the long-awaited escape of the bird flu from the avian community.

New virus-psyop: China confirms first human case of H10N3 bird flu (The New York Post)

by László

I analyze this new and pretty obvious virus-psyop below.

“First human case” — You only name the first element of a sequence if you know that there will be more. So this naming is a psyop already. The word “case” is very suspicious: will it become also asymptomatic, like Covid “cases”?

“the risk of community transmission is low — health officials said Tuesday” — OK, but who asked? Why would you think it is not low? Why would you make it public other than to create fear? Also the word “community” is related to Communism — exactly what they are building in the West by curbing individual rights and freedoms for the sake of the “community”. If you do not take the jab you are already the enemy of the community i.e. communism. A psyop clue again…

The 41-year-old man, a resident of the eastern city of Zhenjiang, was hospitalized April 28 after developing a fever and other symptoms, the National Health Commission said. — the implication here is that younger people are affected, unlike with Covid. “Fever” makes it look serious, and the “other symptoms” are mentioned but not detailed to engage our imagination in a way that will create fear. Gaslighting for scaremongering. The Bogeyman can do more than you can imagine… The best horror movies do not show many tangible details at the beginning, in order to ramp up fearful imagination. The mention of the National Health Commission aims to make it look official.

“He was diagnosed with the H10N3 strain of bird flu on May 28, but now is in stable condition and preparing to be discharged from the hospital.” — they are trying to tell us that: it is a serious fact because he has been “diagnosed”. It is flu so it can be as dangerous and contagious as the Corona. The word “stable condition” is normally used in very serious or life-threatening cases, often on the occasion of an accident or disaster; so they want to suggest that he had been indeed very sick — but it is an obvious lie because they never mention in the news that his condition had not been stable before in the first place. They also want to suggest that this new virus may be dangerous to us personally because he is in a hospital. And this new thing could overburden the hospitals even more than Covid.

It’s unclear how exactly he became infected with H10N3, but health officials said it was a case of “accidental cross-species transmission.” — it is clear that ‘unclear’ is a self-contradiction: they do not know how it happened but they know that it has been ‘cross-species transmission’… It is gaslighting because it leaves the game open for the ‘human-to-human transmission’ version and other horrible guesses; and it is very similar to the bat psyop.

“‘The risk of large-scale transmission is low,’ the commission said.” — the second reassurance about some improbable horror. They just want to brainwash us into the fear of “large scale human transmission”: the subliminal mind does not understand “NO”; therefore these sentences target the individual subconscious for fearmongering, and the collective mind for predictive programming. The subconscious mind will take transmission as a real threat, as it cannot handle the parameter (low). Usually, what the mind concentrates on, it subjectively blows it out of proportion — therefore in the people’s subsequent dreams the parameter will immediately be “high”; especially if one has believed the Corona-psyop in the first place.

From Dot to Dotty

Bearing in mind the universal propaganda push for “vaccination”, and the evident preparation for a new “pandemic”, MC endeavors to connect dots of the various elements of the COVID crisis in order to discover the underlying pattern of events.

From Dot to Dotty

by MC

We hear a lot these days about gun laws and gun control. Yes, guns in the hands of criminals and the insane are a hell of a problem, but taking guns from citizens of repute just leaves all the guns in the hands of those of disrepute. Those who have not a care for the laws of the land and the rights of the people around them to live in tranquility.

People with guns kill perhaps thousands a year, but it seems gain-of-function virus research kills millions. Democrats raise Cain over gun control, but ignore the considerably more lethal gain-of-function research. Is this yet more Progressive hypocrisy? Or is everything linked to emasculating We the People?

The whole SARS2 picture presents us with lots of dots which need to be linked together to form a picture. I start right back at the time that GoV was accused in being complicit in the Breivik bombings and shootings where the evidence actually pointed to what the Baron called the X-factor, a mysterious entity pulling the strings of credibility. The Rule of Law was abandoned in favour of a traditional ‘witch hunt’ in which Fjordman was an innocent victim and had to flee Norway.

It has been apparent for many years that some shady entity is wielding a huge global influence across the entire political spectrum, maybe as if a band of ultra-rich Satan worshippers had combined forces to squeeze Yahovah out of the world and replace him with Allah/Ba’al as master.

Gates and Soros are the public faces that seem to buy the influence and shut down the liberty, but who is behind them?

Soros historically had contact with SS officials when the Jews of Hungary were shipped to Poland and the Holocaust. Gates just ‘happened’ to land the contract to build the DOS operating system for the IBM PC, when a perfectly good (dare I say better) op system was already in operation on the z80/8080/6502 chips of the time. These are dots number 1 and 2.

IBM itself was one of many corporations (Ford, GM etc.) that assisted the Nazis, supplying punch card business processes to catalogue Jews for round-up, ghettoization, transport and extermination — the famous tattooed numbers were those allocated at the time of identification from local records and entry into the IBM process. These techno-corporates may well be another dot that we need to consider.

Then there is I.G. Farben, broken up after the war, but still closely involved in ‘Big Pharma’:

The Allies seized the company at the end of the war in 1945 and the US authorities put its directors on trial. Held from 1947 to 1948 as one of the subsequent Nuremberg trials, the IG Farben trial saw 23 IG Farben directors tried for war crimes and 13 convicted. By 1951 all had been released by the American high commissioner for Germany, John J. McCloy. What remained of IG Farben in the West was split in 1951 into its six constituent companies, then again into three: BASF, Bayer and Hoechst. These companies continued to operate as an informal cartel and played a major role in the West German Wirtschaftswunder. Following several later mergers the main successor companies are Agfa, BASF, Bayer and Sanofi. In 2004 the University of Frankfurt, housed in the former IG Farben head office, set up a permanent exhibition on campus, the Norbert Wollheim memorial, for the slave labourers and those killed by Zyklon B.

It was in collusion with Farben that John Rockefeller and Carnegie bought into the medical educational establishment and forced the Pasteur/Koch ‘Germ Theory’ exclusively into the curriculum, excluding the maybe more appropriate ‘Terrain Theory’. Terrain Theory has been censored for decades, and is seen as ‘quack medicine’ because its adoption into the mainstream would seriously impact the Big Pharma bottom line. This is another dot.

Get Ready for COVID-21

Bill Gates and his cronies announced what became the COVID-19 “pandemic” long before it first sneezed its way out of the lab in Wuhan. We are now getting clear signals that another deadly epidemic is in the works. My guess is that it will begin this fall, when the seasonal flu and COVID begin to tick up as the cold weather arrives.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the German-language Report24.news:

In the spirit of Bill Gates: WHO is already announcing the next pandemic

Attempts are still being made to artificially maintain the so-called Corona pandemic: After all, the vaccination campaigns are in full swing and ensure that pharmaceutical entrepreneurs earn a golden nose. But it is becoming more and more difficult to frighten the world’s population. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is therefore already warning of the next terrible danger on behalf of the WHO.

Because: The next pandemic is almost just around the corner. The next virus will come — and it will be easier to transmit and more deadly than SARS-CoV-2:

It is an evolutionary certainty that there will be another virus with the potential to be even more transmissible and deadly than this one.

History repeats itself Well, it is a fact that viruses mutate and there will always be new strains and variants. However, it is also a sad fact that the WHO is using every opportunity to redistribute billions in taxpayers’ money on the basis of a mass panic. For example, consider the following excerpt from a 2010 article from the British Medical Journal:

“The world should of course be grateful that the 2009 influenza A / H1N1 pandemic proved to be a huge blow. With so much fewer deaths than predicted, it seems almost ungrateful to rant about the cost. But we have to grumble because the costs were enormous. Some countries — Poland in particular — refused to join the panic buying of vaccines and antivirals that was sparked when the World Health Organization declared the pandemic a year ago this week. Countries like France and the UK that have stocks of medicines and vaccines are currently busy terminating vaccination contracts, selling unused vaccines to other countries, and sitting on huge piles of unused oseltamivirs. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies have made huge profits — $7 billion (£4.8 billion; €5.7 billion) to $10 billion from vaccines alone, according to the investment bank JP Morgan.”

Source: BMJ 2010; 340: c2947, doi: 10.1136 / bmj.c2

That sounds strangely familiar, doesn’t it? The only difference is that profits of 10 billion US dollars seem downright ridiculous when you look at the profits of the pharmaceutical giants behind the Covid vaccines: As early as April, there was talk of 152 billion. And that only a few months after the start of the vaccination campaigns, which, if the pharmaceutical companies have their way, should at best be continued until Sankt Nimmerleins Tag [Saint Never Never Day]. But the resistance in the population is great — and it is growing steadily. Governments are once again sitting on their vaccines. In many countries the destruction of vaccine doses has already taken place. What is also not mentioned in the article is that — as is the case today — the vaccines in question were associated with critical side effects that caused lasting damage to people.

The Nightmare of Hyperinflation is Coming

Our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan extrapolates from our present fiscal woes to something more grievous and possibly terminal.

The nightmare of hyperinflation is coming

by H. Numan

He who doesn’t learn from history is doomed to do it all over again. We haven’t learned a lot from history, and are going to make the same mistakes. However, history never repeats itself. It’s always different. One of the reasons is that people tend to look at history, and think: ‘I wouldn’t have done that. How stupid!’ That’s looking back with 20/20 hindsight. You know the problem, and know what didn’t work back then. Most people think our ancestors were really stupid and they themselves are very smart. No, they weren’t, and you aren’t.

We’re about to make the same mistakes all over again. The current dogma is that Hitler was extreme right-wing and the treaty of Versailles was too harsh. Both assumptions are wrong. Disastrously wrong, as you will find out.

Let’s start with Hitler. He didn’t come out of thin air. He became politically active in 1919. Hitler wasn’t extreme right-wing; he was a socialist. His ideas, many of them, were mainstream in Germany at the time. The Germany army started planning rearmament right after (probably before) signing the treaty of Versailles. All Hitler did, once he gained power, was to speed it up and drop any pretenses. All Germans into a greater Germany (‘Heim ins Reich’) was something every German wanted, left and right. The German army was already planning to conquer the east in the future. That’s why they didn’t have a problem with Hitler’s Lebensraum policy. At first together with Poland, only later they switched to conquering Poland first. Before attacking the USSR, that is. Either way, large swaths of Poland were originally German. They would have reconquered it anyway. With or without Hitler.

Hitler himself was a racist communist. Not my words. His own words. He wrote in Mein Kampf, pages 406-407, that National Socialism differs from Communism only in its racism. Take away racial ideology from Nazism, and you’ve got communism.

Now the treaty of Versailles. World War One ended in three treaties: Versailles (Germany), Trianon (Austria-Hungary) and Lausanne (Ottoman empire). The treaties of Trianon and Lausanne were really harsh. They literally drew and quartered those empires into little pieces. Versailles was as lenient as it could be. Germany lost some territory, had to pay a steep penalty and was restricted in her armed forces. Compared with the other treaties almost a slap on the wrist. Don’t forget the Allies made huge sacrifices. Settling for anything less was not possible; their electorates would never have accepted that.

On the other hand — something not only the Germans tend to overlook — we have the treaty of Brest-Litovsk (March 3, 1918), which ended the war on the Eastern Front in favor of Germany. That was a real diktat. It was harsh to the max, so harsh that the USSR didn’t want to sign it. Kein Problem, said the German army. Then we simply go on. So they did, and added more demands. The USSR understood they had two options: take it or leave it. They took it. If you are merciless yourself, you can’t ask for mercy.

What you probably don’t know is that Germany, long before the war began, had the most developed welfare state of the time. Not only that, the German parliament was predominantly left-wing, with very strong labor and communist parties. They didn’t have any influence, mind you. Bismarck started with social laws, so they couldn’t. Not because Bismarck was a socialist, far from it. Better to give a little now instead of being forced to give more later on was his policy.

The German plan was to saddle the Allies with massive demands and make them pay for the war, plus a little extra. The problem was they lost that war. Experts have calculated they couldn’t make any profit out of the war. The costs were simply too high. Just like the Allies in the Versailles treaty, they would have to settle for something more realistic. However, that is moot. They lost. The result was a very expensive welfare state and massive war debts.

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:

Selling to the Communists

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

Selling to the communists continues: KfW has paid 503 million euros to Chinese companies since 2013

Frankfurt / Main — It is unbelievable how those responsible are selling our country to the communists in the Middle Kingdom: Olaf in der Beek (FDP), member of the Bundestag Committee for Economic Cooperation and Development, accuses the federal government of making itself an accomplice to Beijing’s expansionist policy.

“Germany pays part of the Chinese Silk Road Initiative and finances China’s striving for geopolitical power in Asia and Africa with tax money from the federal budget,” said the FDP member on Welt am Sonntag.

The background to this is that the KfW “Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau” (Reconstruction Loan Corporation) has awarded €503 million to Chinese companies for the implementation of infrastructure projects since 2013, according to a response from the federal government to a small request from the FDP parliamentary group about which the Welt am Sonntag reported. More than half of this sum, namely €283.2 million, was accounted for by infrastructure projects outside of China. Since 2013, the development bank has awarded €152.3 million to Chinese companies carrying out projects in Asia. KfW awarded a further €130.9 million to Chinese companies that carried out projects in Africa.

In its answer, the Federal Government writes that the projects carried out by KfW cannot be assigned to the “Belt and Road” initiative, but without providing any evidence. The FDP man in der Beek does not think that is credible. “Instead of blindly financing China’s great power and expansion policy,” he said, “Berlin needs the political will to find a common European response.”

China has been pursuing ambitious global goals since 2013 as part of the “Belt and Road” initiative — also known as the “Silk Road Initiative”. The country is establishing an infrastructure network that, according to its own information, connects more than 100 countries worldwide. According to the Chinese representation, this is intended to promote global trade. Critics see the initiative as part of an aggressive expansion policy aimed at expanding China’s power. Countries in Asia and Africa play a prominent role in the initiative, reports the newspaper.

Soon China will have conquered the whole world. And Germany comes first.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part IIIA — Synthetic evolution?

Introduction: This monograph and the one that follows look at recent and potential developments in the sphere of the hard sciences. There are six sections, Medicine, genetic & bio-molecular engineering, Quantum physics and electro-neural prosthesis [Part IIIA], and Artificial intelligence, Power generation and transmission and Astronautics and spaceflight technology [Part IIIB]. Whether these developments, individually or collectively, can be defined as synthetic or just accelerated natural progression I leave to the reader to decide.

1. Medicine

The full history of medicine is a long, fascinating and far too large subject to do justice to here. It has been a slow haul until recently, but now appears to be accelerating, so I will leave it to individual readers to pursue the past if they wish. Instead, I will bring into quick focus relatively recent developments.

  • 1954. First successful kidney transplant performed.
  • 1966. First simultaneous kidney/pancreas transplant performed.
  • 1967. First successful human heart transplant and the first successful liver transplant performed.
  • 1968. First successful isolated pancreas transplant performed.
  • 1981. First successful heart-lung transplant performed…
  • …and so on until…
  • 1998. First successful adult-to-adult living donor liver transplant performed.[1]

Physicians, surgeons, microbiologists, biochemists and pharmacologists, to mention but a few, have continued to progress our knowledge and skills during and since that era and these include drugs, vaccines, bone marrow replacement (from a closely related donor), microsurgery, laser surgery & precise neurosurgery and many others. They have together extended average human life expectancy, and researchers are now on the threshold of extending that expectancy even further.

A medical researcher at Harvard Medical School, David Sinclair, has been looking deep into cellular structure and trying to determine if the biological clocks in cells can be turned back and reset, and his recent experiments on the eyes of mice suggest it might be possible to reverse aging. Follow the link for the full 6-minute video listed in the notes.[2].

If this does prove possible in humans it would not necessarily be restricted to post-natal onset blindness occurring through either natural degradation as a result of aging or by physical damage. If this process turns out to be viable it could be further extended such that it might also be possible to use this technique to initiate the regrowth/repair of diseased or malfunctioning human organs and damaged/missing extremities such as fingers, hands, arms and legs.

2. Genetic and bio-molecular engineering

The potential for both of these practices, nuclear (RNA & DNA manipulation) and, say, in proteins and their constituent amino acids, is enormous. Serious advances in genetic engineering have already been made in the case of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) and GMMOs (Genetically Modified Micro Organisms) in both the animal and plant kingdoms.

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule essential in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation and expression of genes. RNA and DNA are nucleic acids.

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a linear molecule composed of four types of smaller molecules called ribonucleotide bases: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and uracil (U). DNA is made of chemical building blocks called nucleotides. These building blocks are made of three parts: a phosphate group, a sugar group and one of four types of nitrogen bases. To form a strand of DNA, nucleotides are linked into chains, with the phosphate and sugar groups alternating.

Proteins are macromolecules formed by amino acids, and are polymers of structural units. They are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs.

This is a ferritin, an iron storage protein that makes iron available for critical cellular processes while protecting lipids, DNA, and other proteins from the potentially toxic effects of iron…

…and this is a piezo protein that cells use to sense touch.

Amino acids are small organic molecules that consist of an alpha (central) carbon atom linked to an amino group, a carboxyl group, a hydrogen atom, and a variable component called a side chain, A total of 20 different amino acids exist in proteins and hundreds to thousands of these amino acids are attached to each other in long chains to form a protein.

Furthermore, we are now able to observe atoms within molecules within cells, including in human cells. Writing in Nature, Yip and Nakane[3] report the sharpest images yet obtained by using a method termed single-particle cryo-EM (sub-zero Electron Microscopy), enabling the location of individual atoms in a protein to be determined for the first time. Breakthroughs reported by other groups have also produced notable improvements in the resolution of cryo-EM images. Ultimately, these developments will help researchers gain a better understanding, at unprecedented resolution, of how proteins work in health and disease, with the potential to aid the design of better therapeutics and perhaps even humans.
