German officials have warned the public that there will be extreme and draconian energy-rationing measures put in place. They also warned their enforcers to expect mass civil unrest and riots over the extreme rationing measures.
Queries for “firewood” have exploded on Google in Germany, as Deutsche Bank predicts that “wood will be used for heating purposes where possible.” German officials are now warning their slaves of extreme energy-rationing measures, along with the potential for “extremists” to fuel national unrest over the deteriorating situation.
Because it’s so extreme to want to be able to heat your home during winter.
German Economy Minister and Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck, who previously called on residents to cut back on heating, visits to the sauna, and showers, announced on Friday that public buildings across the country won’t be allowed to set heating above 19 degrees Celsius (66.2F) this fall. Exceptions will be made for hospitals and “social facilities,” according to a report by ZeroHedge.
In an interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung, one of the country’s largest daily newspapers, Habeck said that the new regulations would be part of the Energy Security Act – adding to previously announced bans on heating private pools.
In addition, buildings and monuments will not longer be lit at night, and there will be curbs on illuminated advertising – while “more savings are also needed in the work environment,” he added.
Habeck’s announcement comes just days after the head of Germany’s grid regulator, Klaus Mueller, said that German families would need to cut 20% of their normal energy consumption in order to avoid gas shortages by December.
“If we don’t save a lot and get extra fuel, we will have a problem,” he told Welt am Sonntag in an interview last week. –ZeroHedge
Germany’s reliance on Russian energy in light of sanctions is making things incredibly difficult for those who aren’t a part of the ruling class calling the shots. The situation has been brewing for some time, causing prices to skyrocket amid a decrease in Russian natural gas supplies to Europe. In an interview with ZDF, Stephan Kramer, who heads the domestic intelligence service in the German state of Thuringia, warned that “legitimate” protests over the energy crisis could be “hijacked by extremists” (and definitely not just enraged average citizens).
“We’re likely to be confronted with mass protests and riots,” Kramer said. “We’re dealing with a highly emotionalized, aggressive, future-pessimistic mood in society, whose trust in the state, its institutions, and political actors is fraught with massive doubts.” And how did that happen? People are finally seeing the state and its institutions and political actors for who they really are: masters who want to control the slaves at all costs.
“This highly emotional and explosive mood could easily escalate,” the security chief continued, adding that the Covid-19 clashes would “probably feel more like a children’s birthday party” by comparison. Kramer offers a warning to would-be participants in any protests: “think carefully about which protests and demonstrations you join, or better stay away from them altogether, so as not to support the enemies of democracy.”
“Enemies of democracy” are simply people who want to be free and not beholden to a ruling class chosen by those who desperately want to remain slaves. They are trying to paint those who want freedom as “extreme.” It isn’t extreme to want to be free. It’s extreme to want to control people and tell them that choosing a new master every so often makes them free.
