21st century politics

most recent:  The Covid-19 Pandemic as Part of God 's plan

A spiritual renaissance

Materialism and greed are the basis of international politics, trade agreements, globalization, multicultural society and the European Union. This one-sidedness means that there will be no solution to the great challenges facing us in the 21st century.

The effects of climate change, pandemics, national and international polarization and mass immigration require a spiritual renaissance. In Europe's spiritual renaissance, the priority will once again be placed on Judeo-Christian ethics.

Are you a Christian? I think that is a pointless question. My point is that you are faithful in love, that you do not steal, that you do not lie, that you do not spread fake news and do not slander, that you do not exploit people and ensure that people living in deep poverty do not go hungry and that you can live in a dignified way, that you treat all people equally, that you treat the environment carefully and responsibly, among other things out of love for future generations, and so on. It is a fact that these rules "coincidentally" correspond to the commandments at the heart of Judaism and Christianity.

If we want to initiate the spiritual renaissance, the children must first and foremost be inspired by the example of the adults during their upbringing. I have written many times that the goal of education is "for the child to become a good person" (strangely, no one has picked up on this yet). The schools that consistently propagate Judeo-Christian ethics will form the elite of tomorrow. Equally important, of course, is a politics, an economy and a social policy where managers, together with all citizens, take this ethics as an explicit measure of their actions and aspirations.

We must do everything we can to maintain and, if necessary, restore our European identity. When I see how in Islamic countries, for example, women are considered inferior beings and live more or less in a prison, then that is at odds with my values. There they can live as they want, but I do not wish these people in my "home", this is my country. As a white woman if you walk in a neighborhood with many Muslims, you are treated like prey. I don't want that.

If you look at how nature is treated in Asia, then this does not correspond to my values. They may live there in their own filth, but I don't want anything to do with it.

In short, I advocate an Europe where only people live who adhere to Jewish, Christian and humanist values ​​and who live accordingly. I think this is becoming more and more necessary given the challenges we now face and which await us in this 21st century. Such an Europe that I envision will have the strength to show solidarity with other countries. The Islamic countries and black Africa can count on us, but the key to the humanization of these countries lies in the return of all immigrants to their countries of origin. There they can build up those countries with solidarity from Europe and they can realize a more humane society. The multicultural society, on the other hand, will create such internal tensions that Europe in this century will become a center of aggression and hatred, without regard for other countries.

DIGITAL BOOK THUMBNAIL

A third and fourth wave of the corona pandemic and new pandemics will not be enough to kick-start a spiritual renaissance. Other disasters will come our way. Then the people will rise and we, white Europeans, will take back control to restore our fundamental values ​​in our countries.

 


Civilization doesn’t need religion

The world needs a new spirituality to reach a higher level of civilization. According to Franz Rosenzweig, Islam does not give the right answer. This is a religion with an almighty God commanding what man should obey. In this sense, Islam is a continuation of paganism, in which the fetishes and idols have been replaced by the one god Allah. Islam has not understood true revelation. The Muslim must submit and God absolutely does not ask us to do that, on the contrary we must be free to really serve God.

According to Judaism and Christianity, Revelation is a dialogue between man, the world and God. Man is fundamentally free. He wants to be a good steward of the world because the world was created for him. Man loves his neighbors to bring the love of God into the world.

In a sense, we don't need religion in a higher form of civilization. Wars were and are constantly being waged in the name of religion. This is at odds with the revealed truth. The more dogmatic the religion, the more fanatical the adepts and the more chance of cruelty, hatred, persecution, war. If we truly want to serve God, we as rational beings must take good care of creation and love our neighbors selflessly and unconditionally. God did not create religion, but man and the world. How we interact with each other and the world determines how we further perfect God's creation

What will happen if the hospitals have to select due to corona?

We should dare to think about what should happen if the corona pandemic gets out of hand and hospitals have to make strict choices about who will be admitted. Suppose there is also a terrible terrorist attack by Muslims and, on top of that, a disaster threatens as a result of climate change. Then playtime is over. Suppose that the government or the power that took over government with a coup d'etat takes the following measures:


- the hospitals only take in patients belonging to the indigenous population, pensioners who have contributed to health insurance over a long career, adults who have been participating in the labor market for many years and children. Unemployed and disabled people are excluded from this care out of necessity.

- State expenditure is reserved for those who actively participate in the economy. Illegals and all immigrants who live on benefits lose their benefits and are deported to the countries of origin. If those countries refuse to accept them, those countries will be temporarily occupied by our army to organize an airlift.

- all Muslims must leave Europe.


This is, by way of example, to think about what might await us in times when extreme measures are forced to be taken to save what can still be saved.

The above is terrible, but we are living in Biblical times because all mankind is under threat. During the Flood, the world's population was completely destroyed, except for one family. In the chaos that ensued at the Tower of Babel, all nations left. These lessons from the Bible may apply again.

With these terrible measures, we have to remember the following: if all immigrants return to their countries of origin, those countries will flourish. For example, if all the African and Muslim doctors who now work in the West return, health care will finally be built up in the developing countries. The return of all creative technicians and academics will greatly improve education and boost economic activity. The measures mentioned above can make the 21st century the best century ever!


The West and the Jews: A necessary alliance

What does Judaism teach us in the rational West? That in addition to the universal laws of logic, there are also the universal laws of ethics. That in addition to Athens there is also a Jerusalem. The attention to the last laws protects us from the totalitarianism to which logic irrevocably leads. Logic serves the ego. Ethics appeals to the ego to serve the ’We’. This is the universal message of Judaism.

Logic does not see the individual, but man in general, to the extent that the individual manifests himself as a member of a group or a species. Ethics, as reflected in the Bible given to humanity through the Jewish people, sees only individuals.

What has brought Western civilization is universal heritage. This also applies to Judaism, but this heritage is often supplanted by the enchantment of the West.

In these apocalyptic times, the essential contribution of the Jewish people to humankind is more evident than ever. Western civilization, through neglect of ethics, takes us to the end of the world. Politics cannot solve this. Only the message of universal brotherhood and good stewardship of the planet can bring a solution. More than ever, the message of Judaism is necessary for the survival of humanity.

The latter is a decisive argument for me to ask Israel to join the European Confederation. Then that confederation becomes a beacon of hope for all mankind.

Shouldn't we conclude from this that hatred of the Jews within the Islamic world and anti-Semitism in general is the greatest danger to humanity?


Europe must be declared as a Judeo-Christian civilization

If my proposals and advice are not followed, Europe will become hell in the short term; then the 21st century becomes a repetition of the horrors of the 20th century.

In many texts on this website and in my last book ’The best century ever’, I have made clear what we should aim for in Europe. Europe must first and foremost be declared as a Judeo-Christian civilization. Judeo-Christian ethics, - described in the Ten Commandments and in the Sermon on the Mount -, are the foundations of law, politics, economics and social relations. Of course there is room for humanists and atheists who grew up in European civilization.

Europe must become a confederation of sovereign states. Russia and Israel are part of it. This will be the new world empire as an example of civilization for the entire world.

All immigrants who are not from Europe, and their descendants, return to their countries of origin. There they will strive to build up those countries, with support from Europe. This is the only way to achieve peace, well-being and prosperity in the Islamic countries and in black Africa.

We are moving quickly to these developments. There will be an extreme recession with very high unemployment, the consequences of climate change will become uncontrollable, new pandemics will lead to desperation. The people of good will will do everything in their power to ward off Evil. It will then become clear to everyone that what I propose is the only way not to give Evil a chance. In the end, the 21st will be the best century ever, but then you have to listen to me.


Morality was not made up by humans

Something went wrong with Christianity. There were rational reasons for saying goodbye to the Church. However, the child was thrown away with the bath water. By "child" I mean the power which motivates people to adhere to fundamental values. It is easy to break a law chosen by man. These laws are, incidentally, relative and time-bound. Basic commandments and prohibitions cannot simply be ignored or violated.

Western civilization is founded on commandments and prohibitions that were formulated in the Bible many thousands of years ago. That is the true and only meaning of the Judeo-Christian foundation of our civilization. There God was mentioned as the One who revealed the commandments and prohibitions to the people.

By rejecting God, there is a chance that the basic commandments and prohibitions will also be rejected. That means the end of Western civilization.

If we are to prevent this disaster, it is not about people repenting, returning to the Church, or confirming their faith in God. It is about rationally accepting that the basic commandments and prohibitions are not made up by people themselves. There is a Higher Power that calls on people to behave "humanly".

The biblical commandments and prohibitions do indeed make people human. It is about loyalty in relationships, about respecting the rights and property of other people, about unconditional and unselfish love, about forgoing violence. If these commandments and prohibitions are not complied with on a large scale, this will have disastrous consequences for politics, the economy and interpersonal relations. How bad the latter is, for example, we see in the enormous number of marriages that end in divorce. The destruction of nature is also proof that we have no respect or responsibility for what we did not create ourselves, but that it has been given to humanity. By whom?

But how are people motivated to adhere to Biblical values?

If we are to be able to manage the consequences of climate change or live with constantly emerging epidemics, we will have to show great solidarity. The biblical commandments and prohibitions are necessary and fundamental for this.

The secularization can eventually lead to a man-made Apocalypse. I'm breaking my mind about how to avoid that. Man has been capable of the Holocaust, even in the most civilized and Christian country. These and all the other horrors in the world are completely opposite to the Bible's message. If we want to avoid repetition, we must put the Higher Power that has revealed the commandments and prohibitions at the center of our lives. The Church can help us with this, but as individuals we must do it in our personal lives. The first thing we can do is to take the study of the Bible seriously again, because without the wisdom of the Bible we would be lost as Western civilization.

The corona pandemic: the blackest scenario

We need to be prepared for the worst, while pursuing a consistent policy to turn the tide and maintain hope that things will turn out well. However, with covid-19 we are at great risk. The virus has spread all over the world. Mutations can occur anywhere, which makes developing a vaccine very difficult. In the worst case, the virus mutates into the most deadly infection. Then, as at the time of the plague or of cholera, thirty percent or more of the population will die.

In the darkest scenario, society is about to burst. The millions of unemployed and all those distraught people need only a single spark and rebellions are breaking out everywhere. Governments are obliged to focus on the most necessary amenities. Not a cent is spent on asylum seekers, illegal immigrants or other refugees. These people are no longer certain of their lives during popular uprisings. There must be drastic cuts in all sectors, so that ultimately only the native population has rights. Each country is exclusively intended for citizens who feel connected through centuries of history and common values.

The powerlessness of governments is becoming increasingly hopeless. Nobody dares to take the necessary measures. The police and the army are obliged to carry out a coup in order to maintain order. This starts in France because the police have been fighting a war in the no-go zones for years and are deeply frustrated by all those politicians who are looking away. Other countries will follow. Hungary and Poland declare their solidarity with the coup plotters in France. The army occupies part of North Africa. That is quite easy because the Arab armies are powerless. An airlift to that area is established to transfer all unwanted, illegal and criminal aliens to Africa. From there, they have to figure out for themselves how to return to their countries of origin.

Meanwhile, the struggle continues in Europe. Citizen committees are established everywhere to create so-called networks of solidarity. Citizens help each other for the basic necessities of life. Agriculture and horticulture are given priority to become as self-sufficient as possible. Volunteers who provide help, where necessary, work in the networks of solidarity. Nobody needs to be unemployed, because every citizen, according to her or his talents, can contribute to a network of solidarity. Some work in the care sector and education, others perform odd jobs or work in biodynamic agriculture. There will be a basic wage for everyone. Those who enter into a traditional marriage and start a nuclear family receive extra financial support.

Young adults perform two-year conscription duties with the police, military, or customs. This allows the national borders to be perfectly controlled. Not a single package or container escapes customs control. The army is ready to fight against hostile internal groups or in the event of an attack from outside. The police are present in every district and in every village, so that crime and nuisance are drastically reduced.

The ultimate result could be that Europe becomes a world power and a shining example for the whole world. It may well be that the immigrants who have returned to the Middle East and black Africa take responsibility for their own country, so that peace, well-being and prosperity will also be achieved there. Perhaps the European networks of solidarity will operate internationally to assist countries in developing a dignified society where necessary.

Is the blackest scenario perhaps necessary to make the 21st century the best century ever?
