Karl Richter critiques modern Germany, tracing its social and political decline to the abandonment of traditional values, and argues for a return to a merit-based societal structure influenced by ancient philosophical ideals.

Antiquity was based on a hierarchical worldview of humans and the universe, which also distinguished between ethical values: the superior at the top, the inferior at the bottom. Gods were placed above humans, who were above animals and the rest of creation. This order was naturally reflected in smaller scales; for example, Plato clearly understood that in humans the head, the seat of intellect making all decisions, is at the top, while the organs necessary for the body’s material functions, such as digestion and metabolism, are located in the lower regions. One might smile at this, but that’s how antiquity saw it.

It is even more interesting that Plato saw similar differences in value between political systems, drawing analogies to human character traits. Thus, a person’s political stance ultimately reflects their constitution, their performance capability, their demeanour, and their appearance. Today, with our understanding of psychosomatics, quantum physics, morphogenetic fields, etc., this idea is even more compelling than in Plato’s times. We now know that thoughts are powerful and have a formative impact: you are what you think, and what thoughts, dreams, and goals you allow space within yourself. The face is rightly seen as the mirror of the soul. But the overall demeanour, posture, and charisma are no less so.

Therefore, it seems natural that an ‘aristocratic’ person, who politically represents the selection of the best, presents himself differently from a ‘democratic’ person, who sincerely believes in the equality of all and lives by this principle. The ‘democratically’ inclined citizen is typically a lazy sod because, according to his belief, the lowest is just as valuable as the highest. The lower material aspects set the tone. According to Marx, being determines consciousness, not vice versa. Consequently, a democratic person fundamentally cannot command himself, is subject to his dependencies and addictions, and is manipulable through material lures such as money. It is no surprise that democratic societies tend to resemble a sewer. Most Western European cities have become cesspools filled with filth and graffiti, a fitting expression of the ideology of their inhabitants.

Nota bene: the above applies in principle. Of course, there are also industrious liberals and democrats who work on themselves, such as in competitive sports. Conversely, there are right-wingers who let themselves go, smoking and drinking. But these are inconsistencies in both directions. The democratic character is consequently an obese, unwashed, and unshaven underachiever, while the right-wing ideally is a fit, physically and mentally able ‘complete person’.

Politically, ‘right-wing’ individuals tend to be elite because they have internalised the hierarchical idea, are performance-oriented, and strive for optimisation, not ‘equality’. It must be remembered: ‘self-discipline’ — having oneself under control — was once a societal ideal before 1945, from school onwards. Especially in the military, great importance was placed on this. How else could it be — if you cannot step out of your comfort zone, you cannot be expected to perform in a crisis. The entire Western culture, which has given the world so much, is based on self-overcoming and renunciation of desires, while infantile characters want everything immediately and have practically no frustration tolerance. Young women infested by Green Party politics, who can do nothing but babble, are the best example of this.

Following the re-education after the war and the active sabotage by ‘our American friends’, which turned Germans into left-liberal, consumer-driven zombies, our country is now in free fall. An economic crash is foreseeable. A recent study by the major bank ING shows that productivity, the secret of German economic success, has now evaporated. Between 1972 and 1992, economic output per employee grew by about two per cent per year; between 2012 and 2022, it grew by only 0.3 per cent. This is not surprising. The key contributors have either left or switched to hibernation mode. Our international competitiveness is thus nullified.

The crash is also palpable in the public space. It is visible in the cityscape; it is visible in the people. Women who deliberately wear tattered jeans are truly a case for the asylum, not to mention ‘hoodies’, trainers, and other lower-class clothing. The shaping of human beings, the selection of the best, which used to be taken for granted, no longer occurs. Today, it is branded as ‘far-right’. Under these circumstances, it is a badge of honour for all those who resist.

The implosion of the sewer is inevitable. And the sooner, the better. The Federal Republic of Germany has had only one goal since its inception: it wants to be the opposite of the time before it. The life-opposing democratic worldview, based on the inversion of natural conditions, aids it in this. The Federal Republic is the cancer of German history, which retrospectively contaminates and denigrates a millennium and a half of our past: not just the Third Reich, but also the Empire, Prussia of course, colonial history, Luther, Richard Wagner, Nietzsche — everything. And as it fights the past, it also wants to destroy the future of the Germans. The current ragtag regime is merely the internal consequence of the West German post-war democracy, established in 1948/49 by the victors. There can be no discussion: the Federal Republic must go if Germany is to continue living. The Federal Republic is Germany’s evil shadow, its zombie, its poisoned clearance rack.

The comforting thought is that we do not have to rack our brains. The descent into hell has long begun. Order will return.
