Although not the source most would equate with truthful, unbiased information, Turkey's President Erdogan may have unwittingly put his finger on Germany's central challenge when he said the following:
“Germany, you have no relation whatsoever to democracy and you should know that your current actions are no different to those of the Nazi period,” Erdogan helpfully noted. “I thought the era of Nazism was over in Germany, but now I see that it’s going on. Everything is clear.”
Mainstream and state-subsidized news outlets immediately condemned the comment and portrayed it as being ludicrous. In other words, standard operating procedure when their narrative is being threatened. To be sure, Erdogan's leadership style has been authoritarian and he's not the type of leader that immediately springs to mind when contemplating democracy, his remark does contain at least a kernel of truth and deserves to be debated honestly.
Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel told the German people outright eight years ago that they "Can't count on campaign promises made actually being fulfilled after the election.".
The Federal Republic of Germany's highest court has ruled that every election in Germany since 1965 is invalid, but that didn't change much of anything because the courts and the police apparently haven't changed their behavior accordingly. "Just following orders" wasn't allowed as a valid defense during the NAZI war trials at the Hague, so one has to wonder why those in the German government aren't more worried about repercussions for unlawful and illegal acts carried out in the color of law.
The first layer of defense for those that have hijacked the system to enrich themselves and their allies is the all too German attribut that they can easily be tricked into following orders using disinformation. As Napoleon once said "There is no more good-natured, but also no more gullible people than the Germans. No lie can be conceived treacherous enough, the Germans believe it. They follow a slogan which was given to them, to act against their own countrymen, rather than the real enemies of their country." This holds true to this day where the German government is engaged in a trade war against their own people, gouging income tax based on a 16.10.1934 law instigated by the NAZIs and signed by Adolf Hitler, an enormous 19% value added tax on all products and services as well as involuntary contracts for each household requiring people to pay fees to cover the costs of state-run television. The entire court system is built on extracting money from those unlucky enough to have to appear before a court. Rather than promoting the general order through mediating between two parties and providing a fair decision, the system is merely interested in generating revenue for the corporations that have been installed for this purpose. Every police station, city and state organ is identified in the international register as a corporation. Bundesrepublik Deutschsland Finanzagentur GmbH, a limited liability company that is only liable for some €25,000, is the corporate entity behind the €3,73 Trillion euro economy managing Federal Republic of Germany. The name Federal Republic of Germany is a moniker that was created by the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary forces and attached to the seized country after the capitulation was signed, albeit not legally, in order to get rid of the name Deutsches Reich or German Empire. Although the country was declared seized, it was not annexed, so the Basic law was instituted by SHAEF to regulate the administration of Germany by Germans subordinate to it. The basic law is generally considered by Germans to be the constitution, although the accepted definition of basic law is a legal construction to uphold order in occupied territories. The last article, Article 146, of basic law for Germany belies the fact that the basic law is indeed not a constitution with the following quote:
Article 146 [Duration of the Basic Law]
This Basic Law, which since the achievement of the unity and freedom of Germany applies to the entire German people, shall cease to apply on the day on which
- a constitution freely adopted by the German people takes effect
The second row of defense is the obfuscation of pertinent information while purposefully shifting the public attention to the junk-food equivalent of information management in public media. It is completely intentional that most common people have no love for or interest in the intricasies of law until, perhaps, they are faced with a situation that requires the knowledge. David Knight from Infowars remarked a day or two ago that sufficiently complicated laws are virtually the same as having no laws. His point was that when only few are capable of interpreting law, such as attorneys and judges, they can influence the outcome subtly in their interests without the common people being the wiser. This has been going on since the end of the second world war, but now that the country has been delivered into the European Union without a popular vote and virtually no say in the laws being passed at the EU level, people are starting to read the laws and are noting discrepancies between written law and general practices in dealing with the public. There is a growing number of Germans that are pushing back against the unlawful collection of fees due to an unclear legal basis.
The oath of the Bundespresident, the Chancellor and the Federal ministers;
“I swear that I will dedicate my efforts to the well-being of the German people, promote their
welfare, protect them from harm, uphold and defend the Basic Law and the laws of the Federation,
perform my duties conscientiously, and do justice to all. So help me God.”
follows the common theme of responsibilities that elected officials and state employees are expected to uphold, but ever more citizens are questioning the integrity of their representatives in the aftermath of the state-sanctioned immigration that has been forced on the Germans by the policies advanced by Chancellor Merkel and apparently supported by her political party and it's coalition partners. The oath is percieved as contradicting the practices applied to the court system daily.
People are being tried before courts that are not state courts since paragraph 15 of the constitutional court law which stated simply "All courts are state courts." was rescinded without replacement. This and other changes to laws since the reunification have created an environment where the people are losing confidence in the legal system because the inconsistencies are blatant to those that take time to inform themselves and those that defend the legal structure have run out of arguments and excuses.
This topic has been gaining momentum and there are several contemporary German heroes that are using their legal knowledge to nudge the lawmakers into reconciling the differences between conflicting laws and statutes, but it seems the needs of the EU as perceived by the German politicians have been and are still being a higher priority than the well-being of the German people. This summer, leading up to the election of a new Chancellor, you can expect to hear more about this topic, which is not only important for the German people. The Deutsche Reich, which is still at war with nearly fifty nations at least on paper, became sovereign in 1990 when the 2+4 contract between the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic was ratified, but only a few citizens of German heritage have recognized their inheritance as citizens of the Weimar Republic which allows them to be identified as members of the German state their ancestors were members of before the rise of National Socialism.
One reason the world is waiting on the German people is; without a peace treaty that ends war between the Deutsche Reich and all 47 countries, WWII lives on. This makes it legitimate for the Allied Forces to bomb anywhere in the world without congressional approval because they are still, technically, at war. That the Deutsche Reich is only a paper tiger at the moment is irrelevant.
If the German people are to establish a lasting peace and live in accordance with international law, they must first vote on and accept a new constitution for the Deutsche Reich and then arrange a peace treaty with all nations still at war with them.
