Green Reich "Deal" Rising to Power in Germany

What could go wrong?

The Green Reich"

In Merkel's Twilight, German Greens Ride to Brink of Power

"When the scruffy Greens marched into German parliament nearly four decades ago in jeans and sneakers, they were sidelined and ridiculed. Today, the party has a legitimate shot at governing Europe’s largest economy.

"With Angela Merkel’s coalition hanging by a thread, the possibility of a Green chancellor is a hot topic in Berlin. The party overtook her Christian Democrat-led bloc in polls this month. Robert Habeck, the stubble-cheeked Green co-chairman, would defeat Merkel’s heir apparent in a contest to lead Germany.

"That raises the question of how the nation would be run by a party that in 1998 proposed tripling gasoline prices and, in 2013, suggested banning meat in canteens every Thursday."...

'The Greens are still in part a prohibition party that wants to use strict regulation to steer the economy,' said Carsten Brzeski, chief economist at ING Germany. 'A Green-led government would be difficult for business to handle.'"...

"In an unusual mea culpa, Merkel last week acknowledged her government had done too little to combat climate change. Only days after the Green party began targeting online retailers for the amount of returned goods they destroy, Merkel’s administration announced tighter regulation along the same lines..."

"'The current polls don’t allow a government without the Greens,' said Sebastian Dullien, an economist at the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin. 'A Green chancellor has moved entirely into the realm of the possible.'"

German Greens look to ban all industrial farming*

"The Green party in Germany has said it intends to ban industrial farming as part of a wide-ranging and costly package to combat climate change should they come to power."...

"The Green party are currently riding a wave of popularity that makes it ever more probable that they will help form the next coalition government in Europe’s largest economy.

"The latest polling shows that their co-leader Robert Habeck is the public’s preferred choice to be the next Chancellor ahead of the Christian Democrats’ Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer.

"Meanwhile several polls suggest that the party as a whole is now the most popular political force in the country."

    The Green movement (viro) began in the area we now call Germany in medieval times, it combines feudalism, religious symbology, nature worship and fascism. It had a revival in Nazi Germany.

    After WW 2 their government was redesigned under guidance of the allies, their corporate management had the benefit of advice from the UK Trade Unions- (!) they knew what avoid.

    Germany concentrated on heavy industry and then production of all types. Production, industry and the economy prospered. (But note, as Trump says, they made little contribution to their own defense).

    The post war chancellor, Adenauer, was one of the greats, he was low key on philosophy, and practiced small government. Economically, Germany has carried Europe with only modest claims.
    The prosperity has allowed decadence, the green movement is popular, for this and other reasons the economy has stopped growing, possibly shrinking. The motor and other industries that symbolized methodical efficiency are in trouble due to high energy costs. High energy costs with easy to mine enormous coal reserves are entirely due to the prevailing green crackpot climate scams.

    Germany is a rich nation in many ways, culture, orchestras, scenery, history, vineyards, high tourism appeal, but these can not sustain for 80m people a high standard of living without large scale competitive industry.

      Primitive nature worship has existed since the beginning of mankind. It includes the infamous religious fanatic Francis of Assisi, taken as the namesake by the latest Pope.

      The modern ideological viro movement began in Germany in the 1860s as followers of the Hegelian biologist Ernst Haeckel, who coined the term "ecology".

      The original German ecologists were envirochondriacs who thought the world was being destroyed by human-caused erosion. The wanted rule by "scientists", i.e., bureaucracies whose permission was required for even ordinary human activity (sound familiar?). The ecologists' anti-industrial back to the land movement was the source of the early German Green movement and influenced the Nazis.

      The modern viro movement in the US grew out of the New Left in collaboration with self-identified "ecologists" and the older, wealthy "conservationists" from the early progressive movement responsible for the nationalization of land under Federal control. In the 1960s and early 70s they were called the "ecology movement", from its roots in Germany. They changed the name to "environmentalism" for PR reasons -- normal people did not know what "ecology" meant.

      That is why Ayn Rand called the viros "ecologists" in her original and devastating analysis in her 1971 "The Anti-Industrial Revolution", at a time when no one knew would it meant and the viros were beyond criticism. That article is now in her anthology Return of the Primitive: the Anti-Industrial Revolution.

    This was introduced in the thirties here.
    It is called Technocracy. Pushed by Rockefeller with his minion Maurice Strong in the UN. Strong enlisted Al Gore as the political mouthpiece in the US.
    Technocracy is a proposed system of governance in which decision-makers are selected on the basis of their expertise in a given area of responsibility, particularly with regard to scientific or technical knowledge. This system explicitly contrasts with the notion that elected representatives should be the primary decision-makers in government,[1] though it does not necessarily imply eliminating elected representatives. Leadership skills for decision-makers are selected on the basis of specialized knowledge and performance, rather than political affiliations or parliamentary skills.[2]

    The term technocracy was originally used to advocate the application of the scientific method to solving social problems. Concern could be given to sustainability within the resource base, instead of monetary profitability, so as to ensure continued operation of all social-industrial functions. In its most extreme sense technocracy is an entire government running as a technical or engineering problem and is mostly hypothetical. In more practical use, technocracy is any portion of a bureaucracy that is run by technologists. A government in which elected officials appoint experts and professionals to administer individual government functions and recommend legislation can be considered technocratic.

      It began in Germany, long before the 1930s, as the German intellectual, ideological ecology movement in the 1860s, not a UN conspiracy installed by Rockefeller.

        More on Maurice Strong
        Maurice F. Strong (April 29, 1929 – November 27, 2015) was a Canadian entrepreneur, environmentalist, and proponent of United Nations involvement in world affairs.

        Quotes Edit

        Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class - involving high meat intake, the use of fossil fuels, electrical appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing - are not sustainable.
        Maurice Strong, opening speech at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit[specific citation needed] But this quotation is not in the version posted on Mr. Strong's site.
        If we don't change, our species will not survive... Frankly, we may get to the point where the only way of saving the world will be for industrial civilization to collapse.
        Maurice Strong, September 1, 1997 edition of National Review magazine
        What if a small group of world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the Earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? The group's conclusion is 'no'. The rich countries won't do it. They won't change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?

          Maurice Strong, the Father of America’s Destruction

          Richard Salbato 12-29-09

          Rothschild, Rockefeller, Maurice Strong, Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Mayor Daley, William Ayers, Saul Alinsky, Saudi Arabia, China and the United Nations equals Barak Obama.

          When we look at what has happened to the American dream, the American Constitution, the American economy in the past 12 months, it seems that there is a deliberate plan to completely destroy the entire American way of life and even the country as we know it.

          When you look at the national debt, the bail outs of the banks, the fake stimulus bill, the health care bill, the coming cap and trade, the loss of jobs at the same time government workers have increased wages by 100% and more, and the exposed lies about Global Warming and Obama’s birth and mother, we can only conclude it is a master plan to destroy America.

          But I have had a problem finding out who is behind all these obvious changes, which are against the will of the people. In order to trace “why” and “father” of these problems, I have had to go back 50 years and found the organization and man behind all this and the front man behind Barak Obama.

          His name is Maurice Strong, born in Canada, lived in New York, and now exiled in China, but still the power behind Obama and the liberal House and Senate of America. To start to understand this man and his influence read his statement below to a group of reporters.

          “In order to save the planet, the group [GIM] decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about? This group of world leaders [GIM] forms a secret society to bring about an economic collapse.”

          Maurice Strong - regarding Generation Investment Management LLP

          George Soros and his Canadian sidekick, Kyoto architect Maurice Strong, are the brains behind the likes of Al Gore, Mikhail Gorbachev and Barak Obama, all who belong to the above and the “Chicago Climate Exchange” which will make billions on climate change.

          Barrack Hussein Obama is the one out in front talking about “Change we can believe in”, but the senator from Illinois is only the latest puppet.

          We already know from the Internet that Soros has gone a long way to bankroll Obama’s campaign, but not so well known is that Soros worked in conjunction with Maurice Strong to saturate the American automobile market with the China-produced Chery.

          “Like the bad guys in a spy movie, Soros and Strong teamed up on the Chery, a sort of poor man’s made-in-China vehicle, with which they hope to flood the U.S. market next year.”

          Strong has been saying all along that China would someday soon replace the U.S. as world economic leader.

          Described in countless media write-ups as a cross between the Wizard of Oz and Dr. No, the Canadian oil billionaire was the Secretary General of the 1992 UN Conference on the environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro where the unveiling of Agenda 21 took place and subtly began to change the world as the rest of us know it.

          “With little media monitoring, Strong and Gore are cashing in on the lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming.” “Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange, described as “the world’s first and North America’s only legally binding greenhouse gas emission registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil.

          “Gore buys his carbon off-sets from himself—the Generation Investment Management LLP, “an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C.”, of which he is both chairman and founding partner.”

            Obama, Maurice Strong, Al Gore, Chicago Climate Exchange
            Judi McLeod Canadian Free Press

            “While on the board of a Chicago-based charity, Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction program he is now trying to push through Congress as president.”

            The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”

            The “privately-owned” Chicago Climate Exchange is heavily influenced by Obama cohorts Al Gore and Maurice Strong.

            For years now Strong and Gore have been cashing in on that lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming.

            Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange. Gore, self-proclaimed Patron Saint of the Environment, buys his carbon off-sets from himself–the Generation Investment Management LLP, “an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C., of which he is both chairman and founding partner. The Generation Investment Management business has considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading firms that currently exist, including the Chicago Climate Exchange.

            Strong, the silent partner, is a man whose name often draws a blank on the Washington cocktail circuit. Even though a former Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the much hyped Rio Earth Summit) and Under-Secretary General of the United Nations in the days of an Oil-for-Food beleaguered Kofi Annan, the Canadian born Strong is little known in the United States. That’s because he spends most of his time in China where he has been working to make the communist country the world’s next superpower. The nondescript Strong, nonetheless is the big cheese in the underworld of climate change and is one of the main architects of the failing Kyoto Protocol.

            Full credit for the expose on the business partnership of Strong and Gore in the cap-and-trade reduction scheme should go to the investigative acumen of the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR).

              Strong first met with a leading UN official in 1947 who arranged for him to have a temporary low-level appointment, to serve as a junior security officer at the UN headquarters in

              In 1971, Strong commissioned a report on the state of the planet, entitled “Only One Earth: The Care and Maintenance of a Small Planet” [6] and co-authord by Barbara Ward and Rene Dubos. The report summarized the findings of 152 leading experts from 58 countries in preparation for the first UN meeting on the environment, held in Stockholm in 1972. This was the world's first "state of the environment" report.

              The Stockholm Conference established the environment as part of an international development agenda. It led to the UN General Assembly in December 1972 of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), with headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, and the election of Strong to head it. UNEP was the first UN agency to be headquartered in the third world.[7] As head of UNEP, Strong convened the first international expert group meeting on climate change.[8]

              Maurice Strong was one of the commissioners of the World Commission on Environment and Development, set up as an independent body by the United Nations in 1983.

              His role in leading the UN’s famine relief program in Africa was the first in a series of UN advisory assignments, including reform and his appointment as Secretary-General of the UN Conference on Environment and Development—best known as the Earth Summit.[9][10]

              After the Earth Summit, Strong continued to take a leading role in implementing the results of agreements at the Earth Summit through establishment of the Earth Council, the Earth Charter movement, his Chairmanship of the World Resources Institute, Membership on the Board of the International Institute for Sustainable Development, the Stockholm Environment Institute, The Africa-America Institute, the Institute of Ecology in Indonesia, the Beijer Institute of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and others. Strong was a longtime Foundation Director of the World Economic Forum, a Senior Advisor to the President of the World Bank, a Member of the International Advisory of Toyota Motor Corporation, the Advisory Council for the Center for International Development of Harvard University, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the World Conservation Union (IUCN), the World Wildlife Fund, Resources for the Future, and the Eisenhower Fellowships. His public service activities were carried out on a pro bono basis made possible by his business activities, which included Chairman of the International Advisory Group of CH2M Hill, Strovest Holdings Inc., Technology Development Inc., Zenon Environmental Inc., and most recently, Cosmos International, and the China Carbon Corporation.

              Strong lobbied to change NGO perspectives on World Bank.[11]

              In 1999, at the request of then UN Secretary-General, Javier Pérez de Cuéllar, he took on the task of trying to restore the viability of the University for Peace, headquartered in Costa Rica, established under authorization of the UN General Assembly.[12] The UN’s reputation was at risk as the organization had been subjected to severe mismanagement, misappropriation of funds and inoperative governance. As Chairman of its governing body, the Council, and initially as Rector, Strong led the process of revitalizing the University for Peace and helped to rebuild its programs and leadership. He retired from the Council in the spring of 2007.

              From 2003 and 2005, Strong served as the personal envoy UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to lead support for the international response to the humanitarian and development needs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.[13]

              [edit] 2005 Oil-for-Food scandal and hiring practice criticisms
              In 2005, during investigations into the U.N.'s Oil-for-Food Programme, evidence procured by federal investigators and the U.N.-authorized inquiry of Paul Volcker showed that in 1997, while working for Annan, Strong had endorsed a check for $988,885, made out to "Mr. M. Strong," issued by a Jordanian bank. It was reported that the check was hand-delivered to Mr. Strong by a South Korean businessman, Tongsun Park, who in 2006 was convicted in New York federal court of conspiring to bribe U.N. officials to rig Oil-for-Food in favor of Saddam Hussein. During the inquiry, Strong stepped down from his U.N. post, stating that he would "sideline himself until the cloud was removed". Since then Strong has not returned to his native Canada, and now lives in Beijing.[14] Strong passed away 11/27/2015.

              Strong was the UN's envoy to North Korea until July 2005. According to Associated Press his contract was not renewed "amid questions about his connection to a suspect in the UN oil-for-food scandal", Tongsun Park, as well as due to criticism that he gave his step-daughter a job at the UN contrary to UN staff regulations against hiring immediate family.[15]

              Maurice Strong has received a number of honors, awards and medals. He has received 53 honorary doctorate degrees and honorary visiting professorships at 7 universities.

    Unlike Kalifornia, here in Alabama any fast food restaurant restaurant will serve me dino a diet soda with a plastic straw and any slow food restaurant will serve me dino unsweetened iced tea with a plastic straw without any fear of arrest, fines and imprisonment.
    Been wondering how long the sanity here will last, though.

      VG article. It points out that it is not energy costs alone causing the problem, there are cultural issues. That old fraud Freud would have said -it is Thanatos, the death wish.

      One point- no nuclear power, vastly reduced coal power, no to more diesel, but there is natural gas. Quite a good fuel for electrical power generation tho' too expensive in general for base load but it beats the un-reliables easily on cost, Germany has almost none, already imports much from Russia. Having Russia as a major supplier of an essential production factor is high risk.

        But who needs power for a post-industrial Green "back to the land" agrarian economy in which burning "fossil fuels" and other chemical reactions are illegal?
