Socialist Democracy Leads to Nazism: Germany, Greece, the U.S.

October 12, 2013

Unfortunately, one of the most consistent correlations we see is that Socialist Democracy ultimately leading to Nazism.

This has happened over and over again, first in Germany in the 1920s and early 30s, and now in Greece, where a blatantly Nazi party, Golden Dawn, had approx. 15% support in the recent past, although the murder of an anti-racist rap musician, and the government arrest and crackdown on the party, seem to have lowered the support level in recent polls. 

However, the BBC in 2012 reported that while support for the party was in the low teens at that time, support in the police force was at 20%, and the Beeb gave details of multiple incidents of how opposition activists had been arrested, beaten and stripped naked, and nothing was done about it. They reported over a hundred attacks on immigrants in the last year, but again nothing was done until this popular musician was murdered by the Nazis. So when 15% of your populace and 20% of your police are Nazis, you can see the results of the Sociaiist overspending that went on for years, that finally led to a debt crisis, which in turn demanded austerity measures if the entire economic system and currency were to remain functioning, which in turn led to social grumbling that finally manifested itself in the doctrines of hatred put forth by the Nazis.

In Germany, the story is well known and has been told by countless historians. We think Norman Mailer put it best when he said that what brought Hitler to power was inflation. Inflation is the robbing of purchasing power from the people by the government; it affects all classes and produces prodigious social turmoil.

But inflation is the exact policy that the Federal Reserve, and the Democrats have been pushing for years, using every gimmick to revivify their rotten Keynesian economy, along with all the Keynesians in Euro-nirvanaland and Japan, and nothing has worked. On the contrary, the poor have been hit by both massive price increases in their cost of living, while having any savings they might have earn nothing, instead of 5%. Now Obamacare will further economically weaken the middle class, and the slaving youths, while flooding what doctors we have left with millions of new, usually quite sick, indigents. Many elderly who supported Obamacare because they are Democratic Party ideologues will die off as they find they cannot find a doctor to serve their Medicare, and the Medicaid people will get the very worse doctors and the trainees, if they wait for months. Thus will Obama and the Corporatists reduce the elderly and sick-poor population, although the President’s mind is so set in Ideology that it is unlikely that he realizes this. But, obviously, Government will reduce its Social Security and Medicare obligations this way.

And the massive debts run up by the Bipartisans under Obama are destablizing the currency of America, just as they have destabilized countless previous economies throughout history. Vice-President Cheney might say that deficits don’t matter, but he was wrong. Already the U.S. long bond has dropped 20 points from its high, and while they are saying it is because of a “recovery”, it could well be because foreign and American owners of U.S. Treasury paper are starting to unwind some of their positions, since there is no attempt whatever to “pay down” the debt, only add to it at a slower rate. (Just let me keep drinking for a few more months, man, and then I swear on a Bible I’ll quit!)

As the Obamaflation destroys more and more American’s lives, and forces them to slave longer and longer for less and less, the social tensions will increase, and people will look for scapegoats. Foreigners and Muslims seem to be popular targets right now in America, but we imagine the Racists will soon add more variety to the choices.

Capitalism in a Jeffersonian Republic with democratic elections and a Bill of Rights leads to prosperity, and usually tolerance, since its hard, or at least not diplomatic, to hate the guy your trading with, especially when he’s helping you to make a living, and he treats you square. Socialism always begins with the premise of class hatred and class envy. Libertarian Capitalists see absolutely no difference between the hobo and the billionaire, as long as they adhere to the Libertarian non-Aggression axiom. Their Natural Rights are exactly equal and equally sacrosanct. Any regime, Socialist or Fascist, which violates their Rights is Criminal. Which is why we fortunately have the Bill of Rights, which disregards how much property you own, unlike the “Democratic Communists”.

The swings to the Nazis in Greece and Austria, and the revival of xenophobia in Europe are predictable signs that Euro-Socialism is beginning to crumble, despite America micturating away over $100 billion/yr for the Socialist’s defense, and our massive loans to them from the Federal Reserve via the World Bank and IMF. No amount of money is every enough for such spendthrift governments, just like the local governments in America, who, during good times, throw their money into bloated state pension funds that permit them to retireGr like kings at 60 on the taxpayers money for the rest of their lives, and then come begging to the taxpayer when the juice runs out. They will crumble too.

There has never been a completely free, Capitalist society, with a Jeffersonian Bill of Rights, in history, so we don’t know what it would be like. But it would be consistent with Human Dignity, the dignity of being a Free Human Being, free from Government depredations on ones labor, life, time and wealth.

Until such times, Human Beings will plod down the miserable road of massive, bureaucratic, socialistic government, grow bitter, and end up in the anti-Libertarian, racist, socialistic doctrine of the Nazis, just like Germany and Greece.

It’s time to break that cycle.

The EU Summit Banking Deal: Another Socialist Joke

October 20, 2012

One really must hold ones sides in laughter as one reads the latest statements by the Euro-Socialist heads of state commenting on their latest banking deal “breakthrough” that will do nothing to negate the crisis which Euro-Socialism has brought on Europe. The tired Leftists will continue to blame it on “Capitalism”, which has never really existed in the EU, since a system which has so many Socialists aspects, from a minimum wage to a state pension system to national “healthcare”, can hardly be called “Capitalist”. Socialism always ends by bankrupting the state and undermining the value of the currency, leading to inflation which merely drives the poor deeper into poverty. The latest EU manifesto on banking is merely a tissue of words designed to staunch the lifeblood of free-trade which is fast drawing out of Europe, and probably exists only in the backalleys of European metropolises, where narcotics deals and prostitution are negotiated in a free-market atmosphere of haggling over price. Long live the black market!

Silverwolf really had a good giggle over some of the flatulance coming from the mouths of that tired Ideologue, Merseeur France Holland, better known under his stage name of Francois Hollande, a man who obviously loves the nation-state (or at least his parents must have), but can’t decide which one he belongs to. How do Frenchman feel about being ruled by a Hollander?

If you’ve got a split lip, don’t read this because it’s really ludicrous. Hollande says of this new agreement, “Thanks to this, we can advance more quickly and with more assurance.” Advance witherto, Missyer ‘ollande? And what does “more assurance” mean? One is either asssured or not assured, and if you’re not completely assured, you’re obviously unassured. This is like the social democrat’s phrase “more freedom”, as in “this measure will give more freedom to the public”. Well, one is either completely free, or else unfree. Freedom has no quantitative measure, and, in Libertarian thinking, the only restriction on Freedom is that oneself and all others may not assault the property rights of any individual person. That is the only requisite for an orderly and non-violent society. (Property Rights, by the way, include ones corpus, which cannot be assaulted, enslaved, or dragooned into the military.)

Hollande went on to say that European states needed different “speeds of integration”. I guess the Socialist President of France in his economic wisdom knows what this “difference in speeds”  is going to require. And of course, there is to be the inevitable “council that will meet” as there always is — the experts will get together and figure out why they haven’t been able to figure out how to run a Socialist economy for the last few decades. More words, more verbage, as the EU debt creation monster will continue to breed more government bonds. The Socialists will never stop borrowing to feed their social methadrine habit, and those debts, denominated in eventually-worthless Euros will one day be realized to be never payable, and the whole Socialist outhouse will collapse.

Hollande’s Socialist twin over in Deutschland, Comrade Merkel, made the stunning and specific recommendation that “quality takes precedence over speed”, a statement certain to send clarity to the markets. Of course, if only we’d done that long ago, Angela’s got it right. So, that must mean that we must not rush this process of solving the Euro crisis — we’ve got tons of time, just don’t go too fast, while the general strikes flush another day’s national production down the loo, further weakening the economy and not producing any consumer goods and so further strengthening inflation. Yes, let’s just listen to the wisdom of Chancellor Merkel. After all, the legislative framework will be in place January 1st, and the body will start functioning “later” in 2013. Oh, there’s oodles of time.

As far as Euro doubters like Silverwolf, President Hollande took us to task. “Greece’s presence in the Eurozone should not be questioned anymore.” Yes, sir. Doubting Thomases like Silverwolf should shut up, and not question anymore the authority of a Socialist, who after all has been “Democratically elected”. What impudence Silverwolf has! Maybe such scoundrels as himself should be arrested for Sedition?

The new EU plan, which will create a central banking Czar who can intervene in any of Europe’s 6,000-odd banks, is obviously a prescription for fraud, and having one bank wipe out its competition by having corrupt individuals within the Czar’s bureau picking who will get stepped on and who will not. It will create another massive bureaucracy that will have to be paid exorbitant wages, benefits, and pensions, all borne by the already bankrupt taxpayers of Europe. And already Merkel is asking for a distinction to be made between “systemic” banks, and other banks. How convenient for those who are not regulated! Merkel also seems to know the precise exact reform that will be needed to fix the Eurozone engine-seizure. Can both of these Socialist geniuses, Hollande and Merkel, be right? How is it possible for two such brilliant Socialists, whom you will recall were Democratically elected and thus reflect the “wisdom of the people”, to disagree over principles, if Socialist principles controlling the banking sector are correct? Beats Silverwolf.

And the fact that this move will probably cause the UK banks and the City of London to be consistently outvoted on matters of EU banking is also conveniently being ignored. After all, who needs the U.K., except for their tourist Euros and their chocolates.

The mess that Euro-Socialism has created, with one tranche of society legally allowed to loot another tranche of society until the looting gives out like an exhausted gold mine, will not be solved by this bureaucratic tapdance the Euro-Socialist leaders are trying to perform. They are still creating debt, and until they give up Socialism, and move to a radical free-market, Individual over Corporation, pure Capitalism, with the small businessman, the shopkeeper, and the artisan at the core of that Capitalism, they will never succeed in their Socialist pipe dream of wealth without work and the effortless guaranteed income for all.

That over 350 million Human Beings can have their lives ruined by these State-Socialist Miscreants is Tragedy Incarnate.

Socialism Crumbleth, pt.1: The Death of the Euro-PIGS

February 13, 2010

As Silverwolf sits and watches the Revolution take place, comfortably ensconced on his mountain top,  far away from those European shores, which is the best vantage to watch revolutions, he reads of the chaos of the PIGS as European Socialism begins its long-inevitable crumble.

A mighty oak can grow and swell to several yards in diameter for hundreds of years, but one day, inevitably, it will crash to the ground, and the vultures of ants, termites, larvae, and woodcutters, will descend on the corpse, all to make use and recycle it for their own pressing needs of life. And so it is with Euro-Socialism, or rather with the whole Keynesian fabulation, which also pervades North America and Asia. Europe is just the first obvious victim of Socialism, because it has been the most vocal in supporting a basically Socialist economy, or a mixed economy with a huge Socialist element, for decades. It’s not only the Swedes and the whale-butchers of Norge who were big fans of Socialism. Remember Bismarck’s Social Security scams, and cushy giveaways to German civil servants; recall that it was Winston Churchill, of all people, who brought in many of the Socialist welfare schemes right after the Second World War that became axiomatic to English life after the dole. Not that they didn’t ameliorate a lot of suffering in the short-term in war-bankrupted England, who came out of it far worse economically than Germany did, but in the long-run they developed the welfare mentality in England, and straddled it with the chastity belt of Socialism that makes  culturally-fertile impregnation so difficult. The victors got the drippings of the Americans’ noses; the Germans got massive foreign aid which turned them into the Treasury of Europe. That’ll teach those Brits to fight the war for two years on their own, in place of America, eh what?

So Silverwolf has been observing the slaughter of the PIGS of Europe, those four basket-case economies, Portugal Ireland Greece Spain, acronyming to the little porcine devils. These countries have racked up debt so phenomenal in the short time they’ve been in the Eurozone, that it’s now realized that Socialism has already eaten the cake, and now all of Europe is going to have to live on blanched acorns for the next four winters. The Greek debt alone is a mind-boggling $419 billion dollars worth for just eleven million people. Now that works out roughly to about forty grand for every man, woman and child. And the retzina-quaffing Papadapoli of Maroussi are internationally-known for their vast Capitalist economy, aren’t they? Or has someone been pulling Silverwolf’s hind paws again?

Now $419 billion plus annual interest sounds like an awful lot to Silverwolf when you consider eleven million people owe it, plus annual interest. Not even Brother Obama and his honkies in Congress can rack up debt at that rate. He only racks up a Trillion a year, but that’s for 300 million people, about 28 times the population of Greece.

But then, this is just the beginning of the headache. Because Ireland, Portugal, and Spain, are also in similar straits. Not as dour, perhaps, but not much better. And Spain has a population of 45 million, and the fifth-largest economy in Europe, so if Spain goes down, then the Euro will be demi-castrated, and we will start to see the beginnings of the end for this centralized experiment in forcing “brotherhood” on over 350 million divers people, most of whom have been butchering each other by the thousands, for thousands of years, over thousands of yards of soil. And judging by the animosity which economic problems bring out in people, and the latent nationalism which still infects most of Europe (witness the soccer fan behavior, and the continuing passion for competitive nationalistic sporting events), the “socialist ideal” of bailing out your brother at the cost of higher gas, food and jeans, is one that will quickly bring the “Deutschland uber Alles” pack to its hind legs again.

On top of that, Italy is also getting further into its perpetual fiscal deficits, and will probably soon be terminal instead of just very ill. So perhaps one should Italianly pluralise the acronym to PIGSI.

And Europe’s bankruptcy is all the more amazing when you consider that the American taxpayer has been primarily footing the bill for European and NATO defence costs for decades now. The American Defense spending bills approved almost unanimously by the Democrat Party members in Congress for decades, has helped to keep America a society with many poor people, and with a crumbling infrastructure, while Europeans get the best in free medical care, modern trains, and all kinds of Socialist perks not even available in America. Truly the American taxpayer has been ripped off on Defense spending by the collaborative efforts of the Democrat and Republican parties for years, as well as by the European consumer. Their actions amount to a flagitious moral crime, though they may skirt illegality according to the definition. But public education has so dulled the American’s mind, that most of them fully support the mulcting of their wealth for the benefit of Euro-Socialists.

The crashing of the Euro will be a sharp lesson to the world’s peoples of the dangers of Keynesian, fractional reserve banking, as well as having a central bank that can destroy the value of paper currency by fiat at will. They will once again learn that they have been brainwashed, as they finally watch the inevitable destruction of European Socialism, after their saying it would succeed and be a shining City on a Hill for the last 90 years. How quickly are the proud laid low.

The abattoir is open; the slaughterer has had his three cups of cafe au lait, and is all hepped up and ready for business, and the first Euro-PIGS are  coming down the chute.

As the Mob’s slogan goes, “Pay or die”.
