Fall Of The Wall 25th Anniversary

 

berlinermauer122~_v-videowebl

To those of us who grew up in a divided Germany today is a special day, marking the 25th anniversary fall of the Berlin Wall and with it the fall of East Germany. The Eastern bloc under communism fell apart in 1989,  and a great change swept through Europe. East Germans were celebrating the freedom to travel, the right to free speech and being finally able to buy bananas!

Nowhere was the presence of the border felt more acutely than in the divided city itself. Not only were there two cities, East and West Berlin, but the capitalist West Berlin for 27 years became a symbol for freedom, an island in the sea of communism, kept alive by the Allied countries (The USA, France and Britain) and Enormous subsidies from West Germany.

I was born the day before JFK gave his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech in front of the wall in 1963, but of course I was too young to care. Nor, in fact, did I ever care very much growing up, as the divided Germany was simply “normality”. Lucky for me I was born in the West.  From the time I was very young traveling to West Berlin by car became a regular event, as my paternal grandparents lived there. Border controls were the norm in Europe then (Pre EU), but in most of the countries border guards quickly glanced at your passport and waved you through.  Not so when traveling through East Germany, or the DDR, as we called it.  The DDR guards would look intently at your photo, then stare at you, the look at the photo again, then stare at you , several times, until they were sure you were not one of their own, trying to escape. There were spot checks, where they took apart half your car in order to look for hidden escapees.

I was a child, it was the way things were. And it was only a small taste of how East Germans were controlled by the Stasi for most of their lives, afraid of being caught saying the wrong thing, not being able to trust your neighbours in a country , where towards the end 25% of the population were government spies and people were thrown into jail for years for minor activism, which we take for granted.

In my late teens I became a little bit more interested in what was happening “on the other side”, My father and I spent a memorable day in East Berlin in the winter of 1980, where we tried our best to spend the 50 Deutsch Mark we were forced to exchange. I remember mostly, how dark it was: Gloomy. When we returned to West Berlin at night, the city lights just hit me. West Berlin was designed to be  a thorn in the side of the East, a constant reminder that it wasn’t going away:  loud, brightly lit and with no closing time for pubs , nightclubs and restaurants.

But in hindsight I can say that while the other side may have felt the constant pulse of the lively West Berlin, we also felt the gloom that was coming from the East which gave West Berlin a certain existentialist and melancholic tinge, forever immortalized in Wim Wenders incredible movie “Der Himmel ueber Berlin” (Wings Of Desire)

I was already living in Australia when the wall came down, the end result of  Gorbachev s” glasnost” “perestroika ”  and a peaceful people’s revolution.  The story of the Berlin Wall serves a reminder that change can happen and often happens quite suddenly, when enough factors come together to make a political situation no longer bearable.

There is no doubt, that we in the West are enjoying more freedom than the people who were imprisoned in East Germany, but we can never take these freedoms for granted, as the powers that be are happy to take them from us whenever we are not looking. While the fall of communism in 1989 was a good thing, many places, including Australia now suffer from the disease of corporatism, where it is not elected governments that run the country but corrupt politicians ruled by the Super-Wealthy and their corporations.

“We the people will need to see beyond the illusion,(created by those currently in power) that institutions like the courts and parliament, are the conduits through which justice and progressive change will be facilitated, they are merely mechanisms by which those who have hi- jacked the system,(so as to pursue their nefarious agenda) can do so unabated and limit any possibility of change to the current top down status quo.

Addressing this WILL require taking it PERSONALLY and not seeking permission to drive change from the grass roots upwards.”

In 1989 East Germans began to fight back and soon realized that if you are determined AND   have the numbers you are unstoppable.

 

Greens political body snatch of Gough Whitlam

While trying to make the case that Gough Whitlam’s  policy success are thanks to the Greens, (which did not exist at the time and Whitlam was never a member of) The greens have produce this rather shameful poster.

The Greens attempt to claim credit for Whitlam's policies.

This really speaks volumes about the Greens, totally opportunistic, with gutter level morality and absolutely no sense of tact.

In this spirit of this shameful act on the memory of  a man dead but not even buried yet, we put the shoe on the other fott and give to the greens another great progressive, Joe Hockey.

Most interestingly during the media frenzy around the passing of Whitlam there has been little mention of the constitutional crisis at the time of his sacking, because that would bring up the fact Australia has a constitution, and people might actually start asking questions about the limits of governmental powers it imposes.  Fortunately the Greens will never attempt to claim credit for our work.

 

Gold Standard discussed in Swiss Parlaiment

Swiss German with English subtitles.

“Save our Swiss gold”

This is what the initiative wants:

1. No further Gold sales by the SNB!
2. All our gold stored in Switzerland!
3. Physical Gold share minimum 20% of SNB Reserves!

 

Note its worth pointing out the Swiss never joined the European Union or adopted the Euro as its currency, despite being surrounded with European union countries. Ironically Switzerland hoards vast quantities of gold in bank vaults for the worlds elite but the common man on the surface still deals in worthless unbacked paper fiat called Swiss francs (CF). Bankers in Switzerland are called the Gnomes of Zurich for a reason.

Occupy Central Hong Kong

In response to China’s planned erosion of democratic electoral process in the SAR of Hong Kong  (China proposing to only allow their approved candidates to stand for election), an occupation has begun.

The people republic of China has always held democratic reforms as being dangerous and unpalatable and to this day many Chinese residents are completely unaware of  the Tienanmen square pro democracy protest from 1989 and the gruesome way in which it ended.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-29397738

Many of the protesters have taken to wearing eye protection with some using a improvised saran wrap (AKA cling film/ glad wrap) as a ‘better than nothing’ protection from presumably noxious gasses that may be released by authorities to break up the protest.

Thousands take to the street in Hong Kong in protest of Chinese government wanting to reduce democratic freedoms.

These guys are smart they are going straight to the heart of the beast, threatening to disrupt banking and finance in Hong Kong.

Climate what?

 

Caution actual science content, may cause cognitive dissonance!

Huge number of ill informed people have been very excited about planetary temperatures recently. It’s surprising they care about something so much without knowing the basic facts about it.

For people who think the earth is only a few thousand years old.

For people who think the earth is only a few thousand years old.

 

 

So today’s temperatures is nothing remarkable,  considering the last few thousand years there have been 5 significant warmer periods. There is even poetry from the medieval period lamenting about crop failure from climate cooling. They used to grow lots of grapes in England when it was warm there, so many streets are called ‘vine street’  no grape vines have grown there for hundreds of years. Look at the warming between 1600 and 1850, a long time before the large scale burning of oil, so clearly that wasn’t the cause. Since 1998 the world appears to have been cooling. If this doesn’t make sense, maybe you theory is wrong.

 

 

For people who believe the world is billions of years old.

For people who believe the world is billions of years old.

 

Those dinosaurs, gee its been getting colder since they died out, yeah for the last 60- 100 million years or so. In the 1970′s scientist were very concerned with a coming ice age, you can see why they might have been worried about future cooling if you consider this chart.

 

So there you have it, believe in a world a few thousand years old or billions of years old,

sudden heating caused by people is not likely nor realistic.

Quote Of The Day

“The peoples of Islam will always be closer to us than, for example, France”

Adolf Hitler

Don’t say ‘Muslim Terrorist’

Straight out of the dystopia of 1984.

Straight out of the dystopia of 1984.

 

You can call it anything except what it actually is.

So when ISIS orders Australian based Muslim terrorists to kidnap and behead Australians while  draped in an ISIS flag you just can’t say that is in any way related to anything Muslim or Islam.

 

WHY NOT?

 

Cultural Marxism and the deliberate dumbing down of people. Because if you can cultivate such cognitive dissonance and double think in people they either become incapable of independent analytical thought or worst still active participants in deceiving the rest of the population.

 

Why is the Australian Main Stream Media (MSM) so scared of saying  Muslim, when negative events relating to Isalm occur?

Bendigo mosque wants to remove restrictions including opening hours, limits on political discussion and a cap on the number of worshipers.

Limiting political discussion in a mosque may be unconstitutional. Sorry I believe the  Corneloup case set the precedent for the occupy case,  the term burdening as not being interfering,  but sure demand a double standard.

Summing Up Politics

What this chart demonstrates is the basic truth that evil resides not on the left or the right, but in the extremes of left and right. Ultimately they become the same things, hence we see the alliance between extreme Marxism and Islamo-fascism (because the line is actually a circle , which like the earth itself has a dark side and a sunny side)). However, in the middle things can get so mixed up that there remains very little difference between the sides, which annoys the people on the extreme end of the spectrum endlessly.

It’s possible to add anrchism and libertarianism at the front, providing the ultimate in freedom, but maybe that is not what most people want.

The equilibrium between the left and the right is shifting constantly, that is the nature of politics. For example, Angela Merckel, chancellor of Germany has achieved this equilibrium and is the most popular German chancellor ever (with both sides) However, her success is now being criticized (by some) for stifling debate, which is the mainstay of a true democracy. One could also argue that the woman is a genius who is flexible enough to accept necessary changes while steering a straight course. She is holding the reins not to tight and not too loose.

From an esoteric viewpoint, polarity is what creates the world. Without polarity, positive and negative, yin and yang, night and day, good and evil , the world would simply cease to exist.

In centre the fight becomes a game of wits, at extremes it becomes a battle of life and death.

Where do you stand?

Fascinating

Local socialist denies being a socialist

Right from Day one of Occupy Melbourne there were ‘powerheads’  (i.e. control freaks) lurking around looking to gain control.

Some were overt and obvious, some were covert and used proxies to do their dirty work.

Here is what we believe was one of them, perhaps giving away too much of the game plan.

Isn’t it odd that a well known local socialist denies being a socialist basically as soon as he gets to Occupy Melbourne.

Did he quit socialism? Is he now a traitor to all the ‘comrades’? Does he have to give back the toaster oven?

What else is he trying to hide?

 

Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.”

George Orwell

 

I wonder if he will ever return Occupy Melbourne’s 8000 W petrol generator that went missing from trade hall where he lives and works?
