Germany Just Can’t Get It Right

The late Robert Conquest once laid out a set of three political rules, the last of which read, “The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.” This rule comes in handy when trying to understand the otherwise clearly insane and suicidal policies of Chancellor Merkel’s government in Germany. These policies only make sense if the German government has in fact been taken over by a cabal of people intent not on holding Germany together but on pulling it entirely apart.

Consider the evidence.

    Another rule is “follow the money”. How much do you get for selling out your country and people? I bet the Eurocrats were counting on shipping a lot of invaders to poorer eastern European countries in exchange for big payouts from middle eastern oil governments.

    There’s also the Peter Principle.
    Germany may well be at the point where every senior politician and bureaucrat has reached their level of incompetence.

    This is clearly the case in the USA. In Canada, we have our PM wanting to make “Canada the way it used to be” or something like that. Problem is, what this really stupid PM wants is something Canada has never been (mindlessly multicultural) … or it wouldn’t ever have been Canada.

    Being “devisive,” I’d rather Canada be the “way it used to be” … prior to the *glory* of multiculti tribalism.
