A strong Germany within the European Union? Yes.
A Germany too strong so as to be able to overwhelm the European Union? No.
That used to be European politicians’ sentiment a mere three decades ago.
Those of them still alive today must be moaning: how could we be so short-sighted?
Today’s Germany have become a millstone around EU’s neck. Her policies that she pushes on the rest of the EU are killing the organisation’s very principles and, left unchecked, they will annihilate the entire project.
In fact, they will destroy European civilisation as it had developed through millennia, bringing so much progress to the world that it has become the world’s assassin.
European Union used to pursue lofty goals of economic cooperation. It has become a tool for complete extermination of Europe, her Union included.
Its history in the briefest: starting as the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) (1951), through the Treaty of Paris (1951), and later the Treaty of Rome (1958) which established the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC), it was never intended to grow into something of a federation of states that would develop into a unified super-state, with one centre directing not only internal economic but also political decisions of its members.
EU would start dictating common policies and laws, and woe be on those who dared differ (see: Hungary, Poland).
What’s going on?
It was Germany who triggered both of last century’s world wars. She was not alone, yes, but she was the major defeated nation on both occasions. And the victors made sure, again, on both occasions, to sow seeds for future conflicts in conditions they would dictate to the fallen enemy.
Whether on purpose or not, the Treaty of Versailles made it openly its objective to send Germany to the poor house. The plan was (allegedly) to make sure Germany would never again have enough strength to entertain ambitions of becoming a global superpower.
How the authors could be unaware of the Bolshevik revolution happening literally close to Germany’s backyard, not many know. What history has recorded is that the Bolsheviks tried to abuse the situation and stir the Germans into joining them.
The result: Adolf Hitler, his NSDAP a.k.a. Nazi, and the Second World War.
One hypothesis claims that what we now call so-called world elites would have been content to see the Nazis and the Bolsheviks kill one another off, so they can step in and get hold of all their commodities and other markets. Seeing several major American corporations continue doing business with Hitler, and supply the Soviets with war materiel all along seems to confirm the hypothesis. It would take some major revelations, however, to be able to call the hypothesis a confirmed fact.
In any case, after the Second World War, and a wave of hangings meted out to the main Nazi war criminals, the victorious Allies have come up with a different tactic. First of all, all Germans would be told they were guilty just because they kept their mouths shut and behaved like your stereotypical Germans. Disciplined and obeying orders, that kind of Germans.
And to rub it all in, American troops in what would become West Germany consisted of mostly black soldiers, while the Soviets manned their divisions in East Germany with units coming from their Asian republics.
With the Germans traditionally viewing themselves as superior race (Hitler and his race ideologist Alfred Rosenberg only built on it), they still could not overcome nature. With so many young (and formerly virile) German men either dead or injured beyond repair, so many Mädel just couldn’t resist the urge, committing what used to be known as Rassenschande (racial shame) or Blutschande (blood disgrace), crimes punishable by death in Nazi Germany.
Being shamed for several generations into an almost permanent feeling of major guilt, it’s no wonder that today’s Germans tend to overdo everything and everybody, just to show how progressive and people-loving they’ve become.
And since the unification in 1990, Germany have been captivated by left-wing politics and politicians, former Chancellor Angela Merkel a prime example of it all.
Compared to the 19th century unification that created what was known as Great Germany (Deutsche Einigung), the most recent move was no longer called re-unification but, rather, German Unity (Deutsche Einheit): the former brought more bad memories than the latter. In a fit of would-be progressiveness, the Germans would start using a totally unemotional-bordering-on-dull expression: Turning Point (die Wende).
And this was the environment in which the Greens and the Socialists have taken control of Germany.
EU’s strongest economy not merely set in motion the decline and fall of Germany, but that of the European Union as well, American economist Martin Armstrong concludes.
The burial is round the corner
Former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev famously predicted decades ago that communism will bury capitalism, and the West will one day wake up in communism: paying people for not working will do that to you, he explained.
The German Senate is about to agree on major social benefit changes. So-called citizens’ allowance (Bürgergeld) is to replace the current social benefit program.
Long-term unemployed payments – currently known as “unemployment benefit II” (Arbeitslosengeld II) will increase in the basic monthly benefit from €449 to €502. Additionally, it is supposed to reduce sanctions for those who are avoiding employment and training meetings.
That happens to be a trend all over the world: way too many appear to have enjoyed free money to stay at home under Covid restrictions. They were not amused enough to return to any employment.
The current German employment profile differs drastically from that of the early 2000s. The 2007-2009 economic crisis brought along mass unemployment. Except, times have changed: now, Germany is facing labour shortages.
This happens to be a worldwide trend, but today’s Germany seem to be doing everything to exacerbate it beyond repair.
Add to it the irresponsible policy of welcoming mostly illegal refugees whose presence causes both economic, social and demographic tensions, as well as creating serious security risks, and you have a country in turmoil.
Germany’s Greens and Socialists are not concerned about their country’s industrial production. Once the backbone of the EU economy, today’s Germany prefer replacing their industrial output with faked concerns about climate change.
The EU Green Deal, if you follow its origins, was born in Germany.
But it’s not just the Greens and the Socialists who are ruining Germany, as well as the EU, and, by extension, the rest of the world.
Former Chancellor Helmut Kohl, presented to the public as a diehard conservative, wouldn’t let the German people vote on even joining the Euro.
So, it’s not surprising that nobody is asking the Germans about ending the climate change charade. To make sure they wouldn’t object if anyone asked, the answer, namely, that the green shamanism is killing German, European, and world economy, remains hidden pretty well.
Germany, Germany over everything, over the entire world (Deutschland, Deutschland über alles, Über alles in der Welt) indeed.
