German freedom – utopia!

Bloody pretext

… You don’t know how they are wired, he said, my best friend. Yes, my best friend, yes, he was right. Little did I know.

History is often ironic and also paradoxical. Why are they wired the way they are? Because of fear? Why the fear? Fear and German propaganda. … “The German Angst”

One should understand events that play a key role, so as to interpret developments according to truth. Yes. Truth – reflecting on it, for the sake of understanding the substance, the core of history. Why understanding?


Clasping her rhombus, SHE is worried. SHE is afraid... as always!


So is the “good citizen”. He is afraid, he loves to be worried. He loves his fear, it is to him a heritage to cherish and hold dear.

He’s got it: his pretext, the big fear that enchains him, that he can resort to in the sweat of his brow at night, so as to have a grip on his shallow conscience, however confused it may be.

He is worried, the little citizen. At the same time, he feels relief: no need to decide, no need to act. He may continue to be worried, all content in his anxiety so soothing.

He is doing well!

No, fear is not the monster. Fear is his lucrative business partner, is his propaganda, inspires his imagination, and puts some colour in his life.

He is only worried, the “good citizen”.


His hands are stained with blood

Inside the Cartel

they think they know the secret!

All of them the same secret – the same fraud.

All of them know it and keep silent.

Joined together, but everyone to themselves.

They are alike and all of them are special – pregnant with the same lie.

Every one of them plays their own role – and everyone knows it!


They are what they are not.
