Die Zombie-Linke

(21. Januar 2020)

Sozialdemokratie, Sozialismus, Pazifismus, Humanismus, klassischer Liberalismus, alles was noch gut und schön ist an diesen und anderen in Hunderten von Jahren von Anderen erkämpften fortschrittlichen Errungenschaften und Gedankengut, bis hin zu Aufklärung, Wissenschaft und Kultur, stehen in Deutschland vor dem Aussterben. Geistig und moralisch droht der Rücksturz ins Mittelalter hinter Galileo Galilei und die Bauernkriege. Das von der Kanzel herabgereichte Dogma wird nachgebetet. Wer widerspricht, ist Ketzer / Ketzerin. Nur stehen statt dem Pfaffen jetzt andere Autoritäten oben auf der Kanzel, die zu einem ewig und unablässlich plappernden Bildschirm geronnen ist, von dem Milliarden von Menschen Stein und Bein schwören würden, dass er gar nicht mit ihnen redet.

Die einzige Überlebenschance für die fortschrittlichen Ideen und alle Individuen, welche diese tatsächlich repräsentieren und leben, ist sich von allen, absolut allen Organisationen und Gruppen der Zombie-Linken fernhalten und diesen jedwede Nahrung, Unterstützung, Aufmerksamkeit und natürlich die noch zählende eigene Stimme bei den Wahlen zu entziehen (deren Ergebnis ist in der hiesigen Demokratie-Simulation seit 15 Jahren, absehbar bis zur vollständigen Auflösung in den „Vereinigten Staaten von Europa“ Mitte der 20er Jahre, sowieso immer das Gleiche, zumindest auf der strategischen Ebene).

Erst dann wird die Zombie-Linke effektiv ausgehungert.

Will the White House’s bullying of Europe over Iran work?

Those European efforts have centered on the creation of a payment channel with Iran, which in theory could allow European companies to keep trading with the country despite U.S. sanctions. The Paris-based Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) was formally registered by Britain, France and Germany more than three months ago and is expected to operate essentially like a clearinghouse for credit points.

Threatening Europe Over INSTEX Is Insane

That confirms a few things that we already suspected. First, it tells us that the U.S. is determined to cut off all legitimate trade with Iran, including trade in supposedly exempted humanitarian goods. They are actively working to cause the Iranian people as much misery as they can. Second, it tells us that the administration is willing to wreck its relations with some of its closest European allies to pursue their economic war against the Iranian people. U.S. interests and longstanding relationships with important allies are being sacrificed for the sake of a vindictive and outrageous policy of collective punishment against a population of more than eighty million people.
