WRITING OUT LOUD: Herr und Frau Schmidt go for a spin along the Autobahn of Ignorance to Bigotry

What if we applied German self-pity to ourselves?

56% of the German public are unhappy about the Greek bailout. Bless.

This is how the circa €82bn of ‘Greek bailout’ monies will be spent, according to yesterday’s eurogroupe press release:

€29.7bn to repayment of debt capital (just under half of that to the ECB, which doesn’t need it)

€17.7bn to service debt interest (racked up by bailouts 1 & 2)

€27bn to recapitalise Greek banks (destroyed by ECB blackmail this year, says the IMF)

€7bn on more banking liquidity for Greek economy (8% of the bailout total)

So 1 euro in 12 will go to help for the Greeks. 11 out of 12 will go to ensuring that the eurogannets help themselves.

This is what a YouGov survey among Germans discovered this weekend:

yougovgermansJust so we’re clear here, Heini and Brunhilde Schmidt think this deal is bad for them.

Total bailout going on humanitarian aid for the Greek people: 0%

Total bailout to be paid for out of German taxpayers’ pockets: 0%

Plato said that the fast lane to fascist dictatorship was an uninformed electorate. He was not wrong.

Slog Spiritual Megaresearch Inc has also been polling some key audiences. We’ll interview anyone – especially if they’re dead as a result of German lebensraum neurosis.

To this end, a series of Focus Séances were conducted this weekend.

27,000 wiped out Jewish families in Berlin attended one of our séances yesterday. 34% of cadavers said they thought Krystallnacht had been bad for them, and 66% of those shipped to Buchenwald felt the Final Solution had been very bad indeed for them, but not too bad for A G Farben.

Of 71,000 dead people bombed to shit in Coventry and London between 1940 and 1942, 100% thought it was a bit off that Germany had received Marshall Aid after the war, but not deemed it necessary to pay reparations to a Britain that struggled until 1970 to rehouse its population.

Further, among 18,000 Greeks starved by the Germans after 1941 and 23,000 RAF pilots killed during 1940 by the Luftwaffe, 100% wondered why the German war debt had been forgiven, but theirs hadn’t.

One could argue that the Germans need a reality check. I would argue that some of us would settle for a cheque from the Germans, plus a guarantee that they might pipe down and start acknowledging their role in supplying defective munitions and submarines to Greece, taking bribes in order to guarantee ClubMed eurozone membership, making profits from bailouts, inventing drivel about the “cost” of defaults for Germany, pushing forward federalism while simultaneously lying to the British people in 1975, and breaking its promise to the IMF about working to make Greek debt sustainable by 2020.

Basil Fawlty was wrong: it is high time more of us started mentioning the War, and the FiskalUnion Fourth Reich agenda.

I’m going to go and lie down quietly somewhere now, and hope that when I wake up, a few more million Europeans will be ready to tell the Germans where to stick their flaccid sausages.

Oh – and Cammers: don’t even bother, mate. You’ll be farting against Stürm und Drang.

  1. I was wondering when you would tell Cammers where to go: it was all done by Murky fiddling of the books, such that countries not in the EZ subsidise the entire EZ. Democracy goes out of the window in the attempts to save the EZ!


  2. Kruschev would have finished building the wall all the way round and take their toys away so they would have to klll one another but couldn’t harm anyone else. That might have been sensible.


  3. The Germans never do seem to learn do they.

    As for Cammers, they love him! He stands up for the ‘individual’ AKA the oligarchy.

    What an absolute mess we are in.


  4. I am really fed up with posting on this amaetur blog.
    Please excuse me, I am Royal Marine retired. i have an opinion because I have had the training…
    Now.. Q … Murdoch… cut off the cnts head. He is .wasted space.


  5. “Power is not a means, it is an end.
    One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution;
    one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.
    The object of persecution is persecution.
    The object of torture is torture.
    The object of power is power.”
    – George Orwell

    The EU (sponsored by Monsanto) just issued a ‘statement of intent’ to outline their future policies. Here are a couple of the highlights from the relevant spokes droids –

    “The best political weapon is the weapon of terror.
    Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us.
    But, we don’t ask for their love; only for their fear.”
    – Heinrich Himmler

    “We stand for the maintenance of private property…
    We shall protect free enterprise as the most expedient,
    or rather the sole possible economic order.”
    – Cpl. Adolph Hitler

    “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism
    because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
    – Benito Mussolini

    Also, special mention was made of the Germans (Sponsored by the Soros and Gates foundations) outstanding contributions to Democracy (Patent pending). The German spokes droid had this to say –

    “We will overthrow Parliament in a legal way through legal means.
    Democracy will be overthrown with the tools of democracy.”
    – Cpl. Adolf Hitler

    “I am not a dictator. I have only simplified democracy.”
    – Cpl. Adolf Hitler

    Shortly after this they retired to their coven to pertake in an orgy of blood-letting, child sacrifice, cannibalism and sexual depravity.


  6. Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism. A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.


    It’s much easier to enslave populations with debt via consumerism than to use force as in the model described by Orwell..


  7. @RB

    The Huxley model is much easier and has worked well for decades, but if the population awakes to its condition of slavery, the Orwellian model will be introduced. This is already happening in the implementation of police states in the U.S. and to some extent other Western ‘democracies’.


  8. John, I would love to agree with you, so I will. Germany began to “flex its muscles” in 1864 when it decided to sort out the Danes. Thereafter it sorted out the Austrians, then the French at Waterloo. ( I think we donated some horses).


  9. And also bureaucratic servitude as per Franz Kafka’s The Castle which the current states further use to enslave the masses.


  10. @David Simons

    Thank you – I was confused by the implication that Waterloo followed sorting out the Danes


  11. As a German born 30 years after the war let me be the one to tell you: this guild complex thing just doesn’t work anymore.


  12. @Spike @Robin Banks @Canexpat interestingly Orwell (or rather Blair) and Huxley had this precise conversation in their correspondence, as Huxley said to Orwell:

    “Whether in actual fact the policy of the boot-on-the-face can go on indefinitely seems doubtful. My own belief is that the ruling oligarchy will find less arduous and wasteful ways of governing and of satisfying its lust for power, and these ways will resemble those which I described in Brave New World.”

    “Within the next generation I believe that the world’s rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience. In other words, I feel that the nightmare of Nineteen Eighty-Four is destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in Brave New World.”

    Turns out Huxley was probably right…
