Um, “alleged” anti-Jewish hate speech? Are we once again taking shelter under the “anti-Zionist” fig leaf, or denying the reality of Red-Green Alliance antisemitism altogether? It’s a little late for either.

“
this is still easily the most peaceful, most prosperous Germany we’ve ever had.”

Keep telling yourself that. 20 years ago perhaps. 2024? AYFKM?

It’s a pity the entire political establishment of Germany gleefully tore up the Grundgesetz when it came to “Covid”. Every single one of the hallowed fundamental rights was tossed overboard, and two medical experiments that breached nine of the ten principles of the Nuremberg Code were forced on the populace (they would have breached the tenth as well if they could have).
Judges and scientists were persecuted for doing their job, their homes ransacked by an instrumentalised police, their bank accounts cancelled, their licences revoked, they lost their jobs.
Peaceful protesters holding up copies of the Grundgesetz were violently attacked by out-of-control police.
So it’s a bit too late to muse about the relevance of the Grundgesetz. Sadly.

I imagine the police were not “out of control” but doing exactly what they were told to do ie “obeying orders”…

The entire Europe seems to have dissolved into an amorphous blob of semi independent polities governed by unelected bureaucracies. I’m not sure if Grundgesetz has any symbolic meaning any longer let alone practical. Covid debacle clearly demonstrated the impotence of the nation state order.

This is the second or third piece I’ve read today about the German Constitution. I shouldn’t be reading three articles a day about it.

I agree…but the prospective implosion of Germany into an authoritarian state, if it isn’t already, is of interest.
The facade of liberal democracy is disintegrating rapidly. Economic difficulties usually reveal the true personality, whether of individuals or nations.

Surely we can all blame US foreign policy for our ongoing malaise? We need to grow some b*lls and get them out of Europe! They are insidious, they will start a war, we will be bullied into joining, our son’s will die in order to feed USA gluttony! Hideous corporate/elite/cronyists. (I wouldn’t say I have a strong opinion though…)

I look forward to the demise of The Federal Republic and the replacement of its current ruling elites of traitors and American vassals.
