Watch the EU! Watch the Western hemisphere! Watch capitalism!

Dear contemporaries, dear fellow-humans, we live in a turmoil the Germans went through once already. Let me tell you how it works: Addicts of power and money have split humanity to such a degree that fascism is looming if common sense does not intervene.

Angela Merkel, for example, pursues the ideology of economic growth and competition. She shuts up 28 EU-members in a room and tells them: "You'll become stronger by competition. Compete! Who is the strongest?" Of course, only one (Germany) will remain. Isn't this mad?

Or Sigmar Gabriel promises ordinary people to become social climbers. Actually they can't all reach the peak. There isn't enough room to live. The few at the top have to be provided with food, furniture and f*ck-the-devil things. You know, they are addicts provided by Sherpas. Sherpas rarely reach the peak, they run up and down the mountain, thinking to be social climbers. Isn't this mad?

Now, the trick is that the few, the elite, the mad like Boris Johnson and Thereasa May say: "We fight against the elite, against inequality, we fight for the poor." This is the background of contemporary political lies. People feel betrayed -- and vote for the elite again. Isn't this mad?

Therefore, fellow-humans who have no desire for power and money, who just want to have a good life by the resources earth provides for us, I implore you to gather and start anew.

Regards from Hamburg.
