> 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.

I think the positive feedback to my rant suggests there are not much friends of the EU central committee present here.

While I believe this behemoth will disintegrate in the not too far future, I fear the population of most EU countries needs to hit rock-bottom first.

If I learned anything about society from the recent ineffable plandemic episode, it is that.

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, that is exactly right: snapshot of one system and a snapshot of another. My intent was not at all to argue communism good, capitalism bad. Rather, my intent was to point out that it is not enough to say, this system is capitalist, so therefore it is good. Both labels are meaningless in fact: people who defend all manner of abuse because they have a sense of allegiance to a system or an ideology (example, BOE "returning" Czechoslovaks' gold to Nazi Germany), while at the same time attacking the other system without even knowing what you're attacking.

The Anglos do only practice "Raubtierkapitalimus" - Raubtier is predator. They follow mostly unknowingly the satanic ethics of YHWH (read Ioannes 8:44) best expressed in "right or wrong, my country". I wrote about this a few weeks ago on you blog more in details but did not find it on this stupid blog software.

@Pan Krainer:

This is the lousiest and most and primitive blog software that I have ever seen and I am a) in software development and b) have contributed to many forums in the past.

1) It has no working search feature as one cannot search in the comments.

2) It cannot be found on Google via site: site:alexkrainer.substack.com most likely because they don't give access to the crawlers

3) One cannot even load an ENTIRE thread and use the browser's search featute (which is primitive anyway).

If you want to be successful with you blog, you better move elsewhere. These Yanks who wrote that piece of sh... are idiots in my eyes.

Yes, I noticed that navigating the comments section in Substack is quite difficult. Maybe this will be solved with Notes (their answer to Twitter). Thought I haven't yet started using it.

"solved with Notes"

From what I read about it that will not improve essential design mistakes (like NOT indexing the comments) but should be a rather separate section.

Yes, bureaucracy is the unstoppable cancer that destroys all states from within.

Prussia and later the Kaiser-Reich charged a max. income tax of 4% !!!!! and only from the very very rich (I could not find the income limit quickly but it was very very high).

Prussia was then regarded as the best administrated country in the world. Our civil and commercial law was taken over by Japan and various other states.

Yes, but I don't think this is inevitable. I live in Monaco - a principality, not a democracy. The bureaucracy is exactly what it should be: helpful, efficient, polite, and works. And most of the interactions you have to have with the bureaucracy have been thought through to make them as painless as possible.

I have never been to Monaco but spent a lot of time in HK. That seems similar to what you describe in Monaco. Everything just works, with minimal government intervention unless you NEED it. I loved spending time there. I have been to a lot of the world, and that kind of minimal government seems to be the exception rather than the normal state of affairs. Most of the west is paralyzed by massive and corrupt government.

I think my favorite example of awesome property ownership laws is Japan. When they built NRT airport, there were 3 holdouts. So they built the airport around 3 houses. They built tunnels so the owners could access their homes.

I knew that. I am currently still lacking the little cash needed to be accepted (was betrayed several times by big "Konzerne"). But Monaco hast always been top on my priority list not only but also because that would fresh-up my rosty French, which used to be as good as my English (though not in accent, that's almost impossible).

Saving income tax versus somewhat higher costs of living, mainly rents, pays back quickly from about 100-150K p.a.

The lowest income taxes in "real" EU countries are in the range of 9-15% Cyprus can be cheater down to 3% under certain conditions (that I would meet) but that's too far away for my taste and one needs a plane to get in and out or one must cross half of Turkey..

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.

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.

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.

Yes, true but my intent with this article was not at all to say that communism was good and that capitalism is bad - merely that we have to get beyond labels and mindless allegiance to ideology - excusing or ignoring all manner of abuse in one system (gushing about BOE "returning" Czechoslovaks' gold to Nazi Germany), while condemning the other system without knowing what we'd be condemming. I wasn't a fan of the system in the former Yugoslavia and there's a reason why the country collapsed - it was rotten. But not everything about it was rotten, and not everything about the west is awesome and admirable. My point was exactly that we should focus on issues on their merit and disregard labels and ideology.

To cut it short: We (all) need a solid concept for a new form of state(s) also to avoid that some obscure but clever people write one (ordered again by the maisons) as it was done for the current occupied Germany as ordered of the Anglos in 1948.

I have made hundreds of notes on my own thoughts related to this but a) have I no time to focus on this and order the raw ideas and b) there is nobody in my reach with whom I could discuss this who at least has half of my personal experience and history knowledge and c) this would only be useful if it can be widely published at least throughout the major European countries in the major languaged and that would currently be the by far greatest problem. But another "book" would not help.

Alex, I assume you have watched the "Weight of Chains" video which I link here for anyone who wishes to better understand the breakup of Yugoslavia. It is now over 12 years since it was made but still offers a perceptive view of the role of NATO, the IMF and the EU in an operation that seems to have been a template for Ukraine.( It certainly jolted my own preconceptions of the crisis). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waEYQ46gH08

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.

Yes, after the "revolutions," (coups, really) things were ugly and there was a lot of "expropriation" of whatever the comrades liked. But this did not continue for a long time. The comrades themselves liked owning stuff, so the oncept of private property survived. In the new system I lost 60 acres of land in the new system over a bureaucratic oversight. They made it so ultracomplicated and corrupt to remedy that the process would have cost more than the land. Gone. Amazon stole 3 years of my royalties. Again, getting paid would cost a fortune and take forever. Etc... so I've no patience for the Hutchinsons of this world who only think as far as the labels.

Under the current US system, after Fiorini/HP bought out my company, she declared our pension "overfunded" & took a sizeable chunk. Maybe half or more. 15 years later, they offered the peons a buyout since they were "afraid" they wouldn't be able to pay our pensions. Loss of several tens of thousands of dollar from my retirement savings.

I was targeted for 24x7x365 harassment in Mass by a registered sex offender & his gang of thugs. The police told me I needed to get out of town because their hands were tied & they couldn't protect me.

I left under duress & bought a small farm in Maine. The farm had been subdivided -- hence surveyed -- multiple times over the years, but somehow the town officer managed to take an 5.8 acre parcel, carve 3.3 acres from it & end up with a 3.3 acre parcel & a 5.8 acre parcel. The owner/seller apparently didn't notice (or more likely paid off the officer) & was able to give tbe 3.3 acre lot to a relative for a dollar & still get paid in full for the "5.6" (really 2.5) acre lot.

That was 40+ years, & a half dozen buyers/ sellers before I came along. Naturally the fraud was uncovered after I bought it, so I was stuck with the loss of a $60k or so lot.

I also lost my career in the escape, so went back to school for med lab tech. Federal Labor board said 100% employment &14% growth in the field. Canada said the same. University said 109% employment in the field. Local hospital hr lied about the starting salary, inflating it by ~25%.

Reality is, tbe field is shrinking & half my class couldn't even get interviews, including young people looking all over the country. So now I'm stuck with unpayable student loans & was dumped without notice by the lab after 4 years when tbe state dropped our hospital as "preferred" because it wasn't the cheapest in town. (It also was ranked #1 in the country & #1 ED in the country based on patient outcomes.)

So I ended up forced into early retirement, the remains of my pension went to new roof, etc for house & garage, & survival, & I'm living on 80% of the SS I had planned for.

I have tried to sell my place 5 times over 15 years. I couldn't figure out why no luck with realtors. The last one actually bragged about refusing to show my home to a desperate cash buyer from out of state. Then I met someone with similar problems trying to get out of this shithole & realized its not me, its them. Of the 2 people I know successfully sold, 1 was to longtime family friends moving back here from CO; the other's realtor was a personal friend.

Yeah, I love capitalism. It's just swell. Especially when you're "not white enough", literally said to me by a former colleague.

These days I can't help but wonder if its my slavic last name.

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).

Yes, correct. But even in common law nations, practice is diverging by mission creep toward a top down totalitarianism.

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".

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..

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.

Below is an interesting video by former Forbes editor, Ben Fulford. I believe the timeframe is circa 2010, but it appears that Japan was singled out by the criminal class to serve as their piggy bank to finance all their ventures. I have transcribed the first part as follows:

'Last year I confronted Heizo Takenaka the former Japanese Finance Minister as to why he turned over Japan's financial system to a group of American and European oligarchs. He and his envoy told me that it was because they were threatened by an earthquake machine. I did not believe it at the time. However, when I exposed some of their doings, I was told by the Japanese security police that because of what I had said, Niigata city was going to be hit by an earthquake. Two days later, Japan's largest nuclear reactor was the exact epicenter of two earthquakes . . . '

I spent a good bit of time reading Fulford and watching his podcasts/interviews. Not sure what I think about him - very intriguing information but for many stories he's the sole source, almost impossible to verify. For sure there are mafia-style struggles going on at the very high levels of power and many surreal things might actually be true, or close to..

Thank you Alex. You provide so much pristine clarity and more. As a Canada, I can say that it is extraordinary, that Canadians in general, express an all knowing, overt arrogance that our Government and morals are superior to our US neighbours. What’s more, is the insipid verbal assault on Trump and frequently now, DeSantis. Virtuously boycotting Florida either physically or emotionally, (as many will seasonally flock South regardless of their stance), as they pontificate their “progressive liberal democracy “ delusions of their beloved Canada, assuming all right-of-mind folks share the same view.

How bloody outrageous! Suffice to say, that all these declared “thinkers” have not stopped to pause only to smell the septic stench and deceit within our own WEF’d controlled Government. The complete lack of awareness as to the reality of events going on in our own back yard is beyond baffling and horrific. Needless to say, I am uncomfortable remaining in Canada. Livestock are more aware as they’re herded onto the “stair-way-to-heaven conveyor belt (toted as a kinder and more humane method of slaughter), than my fellow Canadians. Bizarre and tragic.

Indeed, I don't know why this is, but it does appear that Canadians are among the most docile when tolerating the WEF/NWO abuses with a thick dose of Stockholm Syndrome. Australians and New Zealanders don't seem too far behind but, perhaps it's Canada's position adjacent to the USA that makes it most important of the three peripheral "eyes" so perhaps the most aggressively propagandized? I don't know what the explanation is.

"what the explanation is"

I only see one: "Right of wrong, my country" - that is the spirit of YHWH for the Goyim to feel choosen. Little relation but only at first glance. Much deeper one finds the intent to keep people from becoming truely self-determined, which leads to true opposition and disacccord more often than wanted by the "elites".
