Our idol worship is condemning future generations to indentured servitude. We must get past ideology and embrace clear thinking.
> For true blue Mr. Hutchinson, the "fact" that China is Communist and Britain isn't, is good enough: ...
To comment on that - growing up in the Eastern Bloc myself, I honestly think China is "communist" only be name. By which I mean they kept the label for continuity. From what I hear, they are in many regards far different what I experienced in my youth.
Quite the opposite, the "EU" I am now more or less forced to live in is almost indistinguishable from the former communist empire - except by name.
Tomorrow are elections here in Austria (at least in my county), and only EU-approving bloc parties are up for election. Guaranteeing 98+% votes for the EU Uni-party, like in former times. To quote a German artist (translation), I cannot eat as much as I would like to vomit.
Agreed Alex, I am from Croatia and live in USA. I refuse to be kind when addressing USA government. They are massive criminal cartel, that steals and kills people in the name of “democracy and freedom”. It’s only a matter of time when Croatian criminals adopt same ideas.
I agree with almost everything you write, but maybe I digress on this one. You are comparing a snapshot of a moment in time, to s snapshot of another moment in time, and saying one system is worse than another.
Bureaucracy is always bad, no matter the system. It is the mathematical equivalent of entropy. Entropy is always increasing, same as bureaucracy. If a bureaucracy has a problem, the solution is more bureaucracy.
The US is a great current example. There are states that are a catastrophe. And states that thrive. The difference is the level of bureaucracy, or organized crime.
Yes Alex! I see this part of your column isn't picked up much by the readership. The bigger question is where it's at. When entities create a debt currency out of nothing and use it to buy real things, be it natural resources - dollars for oil, gas, minerals, grains - or assets - property, stocks - then how can humanity attempt to achieve a fuller potential? This is fraud so huge that it's inconceivable to most people. Our lives work goes to bankers' bottom line and believe me, it is not used in our benefit. I am very pleased to see more and more references to this fraud in the alt-media space. Not long ago it was never mentioned. One of the first to "out" this fraud was Chris Martenson. Keep up the good work and watch your back.
It is so wrong that people can lose their property to the government if they fall on hard times.
Very interesting. Thank you.
Also, "automagically" 😂😂😂 I'm stealing that one!
That's an interesting take Alex. Never thought about it in this way, but you're right. In the West almost everything has a patent, and it's always about capital. The commies even tho' they percieved propriety as a social construct the community recognized it, and they didn't tax you that much on it...
And as always, thank you for your kind insights!
Mr. Krainer, you are so wise. Your revelation comes from God, and I thank you for sharing your insights with the world! God bless you and your family!
I do have to say this - there never was ‘communist world’ 😎. There were socialist countries 😇. And I had lived in one of them.... what astounds me is this uncritical acceptance of the USA based law system.
Another excellent analysis, Alex. Thank you!
The property tax issue really made clear to me the falsehood that we "own" the land we buy. What a scam!!
And that supreme irony you point out that when western-style governance was adopted in Croatia, more government interference and regulation - rather than less - came with it!
Dear Pan Krainer,
you often seem to forget that you stem from a communist country "light". Tito was not to the same degree fanatic, evil and brutal (at least from the 60-ies on) as all of the other communist diatators.
I stem from Berlin and grew up literally in the morning shadow of the wall (thus you know on which side) but I had regularly been in the other part on "coffee-chocolate-tours" to our relatives. From the economic side they were even much better off than Yougoslavia, not to mention PL, CZ or SK.
But none of the several 100K "Yugos" in DE as were called them in friendly tone were shot or jailed just because they wanted to cross the street or even wanted to live in DACH (D-AT-CH). And they were very welcome and popular in Germany. I wish we could exchange them against a few Million Mohammedanians!
Sorry, I got no time to go more in detail. But DO NOT take Yugoslavia as a sample for the (fully) communist countries. Yugoslavia was "blockfrei" (not a member of any of the political blocks) nor part of the Warschau Treaty (Warschauer Pakt) counterpart to NATO, which should have ceased to exist long ago.
Keep on the good work. No time to add my comments!
P.S: 15 Years ago I lived almost 2 years in Zemun (today Beograd) but in many peoples mind still Voivodina. Very intesting and a great experiance. Since then I feel orthodox.
My parents escaped an Eastern bloc communist country in the 1960's. Before the communists came, my mother's father had a deli, and my father's father had a restaurant.
My mother's father did not bend the knee and did not join the communist party. They took everything. My mother's mother was ratted out by a neighbor for listening to the radio once and spent 6 months in jail for it.
My father's father bent the knee and joined the party. He kept the restaurant and they had a relatively good life.
I love your articles, but gotta disagree with your disneyland take on this one.
Agreed however, that the current private property system isn't the answer either.
There's common law (what everybody in the community agrees is right and proper, and has it's own particular flavor depending on the region) and then there's Roman administrative law (what some psycho control freak somewhere other than your community wants to impose on you).
Guess what "they" want for the world, and guess what "they're" going to find out when they go for it.
Excellent comparison,,. and indeed.! Property taxes ARE a negation of those "sacred" property "rights". And as someone who petitioned Canadian and US courts abt my "share" of the family residence that I made mortgage payments on, the lawyers + corrupt courts always find a way to give the wealthier party preference. I did a little research in the local Quebec real estate registry office and saw that my "ownership" record was one of several that got changed... Trying to
view records for several historic properties and a few of the several thousands of abandoned buildings in Washington, DC . All very secretive here... the privileged ones live in fear of losing their "privileges".
It leaves me dumbfounded non the less. So great to meet you. I believe you had a café moment with my dear friend Wanda last Friday. The link is Peter and Caroline Cavelti who have become dear friends since Covid. We all have had some magical way of meeting one another during these tumultuous times. Thank goodness for that! LOL
My daughter and I managed to slip through the cracks and spend the winter in Florida. During this time, it's been an on going observation of sorts. We popped down to Costa Rica for a week and also Merida Mexico to get a read on the social dynamics etc.. Many Canadian expats in both as well as several people from all over Europe and the States of course. We'll have to return to Canada before my visitors Visa runs short. Yikes!
You are quite correct in thinking we must get past the current constructs embraced by mankind (capitalism, communism, left, right, etc.). They serve only to divide and destroy. There is only one way to the true knowledge that can create a better system or way of life. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7)” Sadly, many do not have nor do many want a relationship with the Lord. “All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way;…(Isaiah 53:6)” Without the Lord helping us, we can never be free of these Satanic constructs.
Thanks for another thoughtful article.
