The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Paul Krugman and a growing chorus of European voices are noting Germany’s economic policies as being brutally restrictive toward other European countries and the world as a whole. Now, former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi has issued a call for a “Latin Front” to openly oppose German policy.
One of the most visible supporters of bitcoin is a “techno-libertarian” named Cody R. Wilson, whom we examined in FTR #760. Wilson, not surprisingly, is a devotee of Hans Hermann-Hoppe and an active opponent of democracy. Bitcoin users have favored the Tor network. Now, a researcher with the Max Planck Institute is looking to develop an alternative internet network that wil be impervious to penetration. One wonders if that is intended to facilitate secure movement of terrorist and/or covert operations monies for Underground Reich elements.
In this program, we examine a clandestine, online currency called bitcoin. Bitcoin has been hatched from the same libertarian, Ludwig von Mises milieu to which Eddie “get rid of social security, bring back the gold standard” Snowden adheres. Although the currency has usually been attributed to one Satoshi Nakomoto. An article in Fastcompany.com hypothesizes that the actual developers of bitcoin were Charles Bry, Neal J. King (who officially denies any involvement) and Vladimir Oksman. All three work for a German firm called Lantiq, evolved from Siemens, A.G. Germany is the only nation that recognizes bitcoin.
“Techno-libertarians” view bitcoin as a possible alternative to the dollar as a reserve currency, manifesting an anti-government orientation. It has been subject to all of the same ills as regular currencies. Libertarian-fascist Peter Thiel is a backer of bitcoin.
In this post, we examine the origins of the bitcoin virtual currency, which evolved into the online currency of choice for the customers of the Silk Road network. Alone among sovereign nations, Germany has recognized bitcoin as legal tender. An article at Fastcompany hypothesizes that three individuals named Neal J. King, Charles Bry and Vladimir Oksman are the true originators of bitcoin. All three work for Lantiq. Lantiq is a firm evolved from Siemens spinoff Infineon AG.
Pre-conceived German economic policies are bearing long-desired fruit. Unable to find work due to German-dictated “austerity,” skilled workers from Greece and Spain are providing “labor battalions” for Germany. The devastating effects of that same “austerity” is making industrial concerns in Greece and Spain ripe for German corporate takeover.
As “Europa Germanica” takes form and additional substance, the reality of what Germany is doing is being recognized by a growing number of analysts. They are grasping the extent to which the German political and economic agenda is bad for business. The program Deutschland is imposing on Europe undermines the security of any wealth invested in the afflicted nations.
Waging “war by other means,” Germany has used its banks to do what Teutonic armies have accomplished in the past. A Greek official has charged that the 2009 Greek deficit was deliberately inflated to justify harsh austerity measures. Zoe Geroganta stated “We have a new kind of occupation in Europe by the Germans.” Germany is waging World War III in the economic sphere, in keeping with the principles of Prussian military theoretician Carl von Clausewitz.
Waging “war by other means,” Germany has used its banks to do what Teutonic armies have accomplished in the past. A former Italian cabinet member has accused Germany of deliberately precipitating the euro-zone crisis. Tellingly, Renato Brunetta termed what Angela Merkel did as “almost a victory in the third world war.” It is vital to understand that the events overtaking the world were deliberate and preconceived. Germany is waging World War III in the economic sphere, rather than the military one, in keeping with the principles of Prussian military theoretician Carl von Clausewitz.
As the European debacle continues, we are in a position to further evaluate the depth and scope of the social destruction stemming from it. A recent report notes that Europe faces several “lost generations” as impoverished young people incur the damage resulting from “austerity.” Interestingly and significantly, large numbers of desperate, unemployed youth are seeking work in Germany. Ultimately, this figures to have the effect of increasing the social stress and pressure on the German workforce, who will face increased and intense competition for available jobs. “Anti-immigrant” sentiment has proved an effective recruiting tool for the far right around the world. The neo-fascist Golden Dawn has begun actively recruiting among Greek expatriates who have moved to Germany in search of work.
