Politics | Society
trete ich ein für eine direktere Demokratie (Umfrage 2017: ~ 75% der Deutschen teilen diesen Wunsch). Important questions of our coexistence should no longer be decided solely by our elected politicians, but by questioning the electorate. Every four years we get the opportunity to do a cross at the appropriate place and then find out afterwards that the election promises made during the election campaign are rarely kept. The established parties, increasingly indoctrinated by elites and lobbyists, serve primarily only their self-preservation. In addition, a plethora of important decisions are now being taken at EU level, in fact without the democratic influence that deserves these measures. I was already interested in politics as an adolescent, but not actively involved. I am and remain independent and do not choose the party ideologically, but rather according to the current circumstances, which after careful consideration offers the best possible solutions for the current challenges. I also see myself as an extremist, for peace – freedom and justice. In the late 1960s, the youth uprising against a strictly conservative society was a logical development towards more freedom, cosmopolitanism, and peace. In the 1970s, the environmental movement, which was also absolutely necessary, began. The current challenges are manifold and quite complex as a result of progressive globalization. However, due to the increasing digitalization, unimagined opportunities for every citizen to obtain information beyond national borders are also opening up.
also called the 4th power in the state, are of existential importance for a democracy that deserves this name. In particular, the coercively financed “public-law institutions” (abbreviated: ÖR) have a special responsibility here. Unfortunately, not only in my opinion, they are no longer doing their job. I am one of those people who primarily want to be informed in an unbiased, neutral and fact-based way. Information and opinions should always be offered separately, clearly recognizable to the consumer. paternalism or conditioning by Framing, nudging or other types of manipulative “opinion-making(here a proof of this)” As a mature citizen, I strongly reject it. One would think that totalitarian states need to be kept ‘in line’ with their citizens. On closer and correspondingly critical consideration, however, one has to come to the uncomfortable conclusion that opinion is also being targeted in the “states of the so-called free media”. The mature citizen is far less mature than he would like to believe.
Ein weiterer massiver Kritikpunkt, in Bezug auf die ÖR, ist die offenbar ausufernde Selbstbedienungsmentalität, hier als Beispiel einige Zahlen dazu Gehälter bei den ÖR.
Erstaunlich wie Angela Merkel sich 2015 zu den ÖR äußerte Merkel 2015 zur Zwangsabgabe im ÖR.
The corridor of opinion is getting narrower and narrower. In exaggerated terms, we are currently living in a “KONSENS-DIKTATUR”!
The elites have always known about the existential influence of the media for their own power. In the book “The Dictionary of the Lie Press” by Thor Kunkel (Kopp) describes in detail the modern practices A small excerpt.
The print media will also soon be “promoted” by state subsidies. Of course in the name of DEMOCRACY…
One positive aspect opens up digitalization for people with the urge to obtain comprehensive information. Foreign media offers, alternative media, social networks and, of course, the exchange of views among themselves are now part of everyday business. Without the use of these wide-ranging possibilities, one is unfortunately only served a very distorted picture of the current but also of the historical events. This seems to have been recognised by representatives of politicians and mainstream media as a danger. Everything is now being done, under the pretext of the “fight against incitement on the net”, to combat the unwelcome “sources, creators”. Quite a few lawyers consider the new “NETZDG” to be unconstitutional. But it goes on, see my article from 21.11.2019 “Attention: Government wants to get passwords, freedom of expression is in real danger!!!”
Who owns the media? For this purpose, a small section of sources …
In the design of my contributions, it will be my concern to ensure a certain balance, i.e. to give a platform to alternative perspectives, contrary to the tendentious leading media. I will explicitly mark my personal view on the relevant topics. It is important to me to make the following observation:
The “linked” contributions of third parties that I have selected do not necessarily correspond to my view of things!!!
another proof that we want to control the citizens of this state as fully as possible is the fact, which is hardly discussed, that our justice system is, unfortunately, much more dependent on politics than is generally believed. Thus, the Public Prosecutor’s Office is bound by instructions and thus an organ of the executive. So politics can have a massive impact on law enforcement, according to the motto “Where no plaintiff, there is no judge”. This has also been criticised by the ECJ ECJ German prosecutors are not allowed to issuing EU arrest warrants. ‘Mirror’ …
… Quote: “Unlike in other EU countries, public prosecutors in Germany do not have the power to issue European arrest warrants. That is now the decision of the European Court of Justice.”
In addition, politicians also exert their influence in the appointment of judges. Is this, all taken together, a real “separation of powers”? A legitimate question, I think.
Äußerst bedenklich ist, meiner Meinung nach, auch der massive Einfluss der EU (EuGH) auf das nationale Recht (siehe hierzu meinen Beitrag vom 06. Mai 2020 Bundesverfassungsgericht und das EZB-Urteil!).
is so important for a country without significant raw materials! German engineering is still in demand in the world, just how long ago. Although differences can be identified depending on the federal state, the overall level of education is in decline. Although this has been and continues to be the case all the time, those responsible, apart from pre-election assertions and fine Sunday speeches, do not seem to be able to get a grip on the situation.
Why is that?
Is there any intention to turn the education system to the wall?
Are there perhaps problems, conflicts that cannot be resolved, even if they are using greater financial resources?
In the first place, agglomerations reveal a number of causes. Poor or no knowledge of German at school, educated disrespect especially towards women, due to a patriarchal parental home. Surveys among pupils regularly confirm the extremely dangerous and majority-expressed view that Sharia law should be above the Basic Law. What happens if, in a few years’ time, a large number of teachers who still value teaching in good German retire? Are Mr Sarrazin or the former mayor of Berlin’s Neukölln Buschkowsky so unpopular in their own party because they openly spoke some truths? Do those who tell the truth divide a community?
Petra Paulsen ‘YouTube (Link)’, Teacher and author is one of the few who dares to put their finger in the wound. The reward of their honest efforts is, on the one hand, great approval, and on the other hand the usual location in the “right camp”. This is what happened to the young blogger and author Niki example: “Death threats in ethics lessons” ‘neverforgetniki’. A teacher from Hamburg, “Marie Schülert”, also caused a stir with her book “Schule am Abyss”. Eine Abrechnung, Schule am Abgrund. ‘Picture’
Even the leading media, albeit years ago, drew attention to many grievances…
… the media play an increasingly important role, especially in early childhood education. State leaders know this all too well, since it has always been conducive to exerting an influence on education as early as possible in order to protect their own interests…
Another major issue is the ailing infrastructure of our educational institutions and the often cited lack of teaching. In fact, this could have been counteracted at an early stage by means of appropriate financial resources. What are the reasons for not having done so? Perhaps it is my guess that a people too educated can become very, perhaps too uncomfortable, for the self-appointed elites. History, before the invention of printing, shows how well it can govern with less well-educated people. Freely following the motto:
Sprach der König zum Priester: “Halt Du sie dumm, ich halte sie arm”diese und andere APHORISMEN.
To be sure, more subtle means of opinion-making are at work these days.
“… Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it. (Moses 1.28)”
For far too long, humanity has behaved according to this biblical quotation. Birth control does not take place in many countries, so that our species will soon reach the 8 billion mark. Our economy, and finance system is also based on ‘growth’, and without growth it is uneasily doomed to a ‘crash’.
It is astonishing that there is so little public discussion in society on this subject.
There is also little mention of the fact that the German population is far less wealthy than one gets prayerfully persuaded from the leading media. So it is constantly said: “Germany is rich, Germany must help”! But the reality for the ordinary citizen is rather the opposite…
State and religion
is, in my view, primarily ‘PRIVATSACHE’. I consider a “secular form of society” in which everyone should be able to freely practice their religion, as long as the laws of the country are respected and the state-guaranteed rights of third parties are not restricted to live peacefully together in the long term.
Unfortunately, within religious communities, there is always an effort to influence the state and society to the detriment of others. Germany and most other EU states are still traditionally Christian. However, the proportion of atheists has continued to rise in recent years. However, immigration in particular is also making this country a growing proportion of Muslims. The future population development and the associated influence on society is also very dynamic. To draw attention to the dangers involved has nothing to do with racism. On the contrary, anyone who is serious about a “freedom of democracy” in a secular society should make it their duty to fight for it with the means of the rule of law.
Islam is a special position in the contemplation, which, in my opinion, is incompatible with our conceptions of a liberal society in the form practiced in the leading Islamic countries. The idea of a Western-style reform of ISLAM must unfortunately be regarded as a failure, as it is today. Thilo Sarrazin has vividly described the danger potential of ISLAM in his books “Germany Abolishes Itself” and “The Hostile Takeover”. But he is far from the only “Warner” in this regard. Further sources can be found here:
Hamad.TV ‘YouTube’ (Hamed Abdel-Samad sends a strong message to young Muslims in Europe, about asylum, radicalisation and terror)
… apparently one dares to criticize only after one’s own career has lost its importance. That says a lot about the so-called “freedom of expression” in Germany.
… and exemplary for many countries the development in Turkey:
Democracy is only the train we jump on until we reach our destination.
The mosques are our barracks, the minarets our bayonets, the mosque domes our helmets and the believers our soldiers.
(After a poem by Ziya Gökalp. Quoted in: “Recep Tayyip Erdogan: The Islamist as a modernizer.” welt.de, May 05, 2007)
Protecting our environment is our top priority, because we only have this one unique planet. By far the greatest danger to our environment is the unbridled spread of human beings. One could also say: “The success story of the human genus has become the greatest danger to the entire life on this planet”!
Climate change, energy transition…
most of us ordinary citizens are not experts in this field. It would therefore be desirable to have an open discussion in the general public, in which fact-based and unbiased information and discussion is held. Since this is not happening at the moment, only the way to research itself remains. Here is a selection of sites…
(17.09.2020 – Fritz Vahrenholt, bestselling author, chemistry professor, politician and manager, talks to Burkhard Müller-Ullrich about his new book “Unwanted Truths” (together with Sebastian Lüning, published by LangenMüller). Despite the sacrifice of the German energy industry, the climate catastrophe will not be mentioned for the time being. Even the experts of the Federal Ministry of Research do not expect any significant warming in the next five years.)
How to organize a country?
if you really want to live sustainably and far in harmony with nature.
A few thoughts on this, coupled with the question: do we really want this?
- Turning away from industrial society
- Building an Agra society based on widespread self-sufficiency of citizens. A large part of the pastures would have to be converted into allotments.
- For all the work, the focus would be on ecological management with the protection of the environment.
- In order to provide food for all citizens (relative to Germany), the population would have to be significantly reduced.
- To be continued…
Is Germany sovereign?
anyone who believes or has ever believed in a sovereign Germany is, in my opinion, very naive. Some information about this…
Who doesn’t remember the hypocritical phrase “spying among friends, that’s not possible”…
Some links to politics
The parties represented in the Bundestag
Some useful addresses
Alternative media (only a small selection)
a selection focusing on more conservative sources is a response to the dominance of the “left, – green” orientation in the environment of the “public-legal” and the so-called “leading media”!
The public-law(ÖR) in the net:
(i would also assign here, i.e. quasi-ÖR)
rather conservative-patriotic, including opinion portals of free,- independent lone fighters:
… the corresponding criticism of this paper should not go unmentioned.
“Hamed Abdel-Samad”, formerly a welcome guest in talk shows, is now banished and silenced. This also applies to “Henrik M. Broder”…
rather “Links” to “Links radical”:
Research all gem.:
Wikipedia has become an established “reference platform”. Also I like to use Wiki but more and more often encounters one in his research on the net the hint (with corresponding link) on contributions from Wiki to the requested topic. In other words, one has a great interest in serving consumers the “RIGHT OPINION”, where one should ask: Who determines this? What are the interests behind this? I am certainly not alone in this view. Regular abysses open up if you take a look at the following source:
A statement from an insider. Author and user “Martin Sell” via Wikipedia… found in the research for “Thorsten Schulte”, who here experiences the usual defamation as a nasty “conspiracy theorist” without even providing some evidence of it. In contrast, the bestselling author has backed up each of his theses with a wealth of references in his works “Loss of Control” and “Foreign Determined”.
Correctiv Die Aussagen über “Wikipedia” treffen in großen Teilen, meiner Meinung nach, auch auf diese Quelle zu.
Conspiracy & Facts a self-proclaimed “opinion correction platform”. The cheap critique of the aforementioned book “Foreign Determined” is underground. A few sentences are criticized in isolation, apparently without having read the book at all. Otherwise, it is sufficient to state that the author is not out of the field. If you really know the book, you don’t fall for it.
