[Due to my permanent lack of time, I have been neglecting this blog for a few months. I am now starting again with an article of Le Penseur, a sharp-tongued libertarian Austrian blogger. Original title: „Jo, die Aristos san halt seit jeher international“, published a few hours ago.]
Well, the Aristoes have always been international, and so the high princely foreign minister of Czechia, Karl („Kari“) Schwarzenberg, threatens with his resignation from the government, if Prime Minister Petr Necas does not sign the proposed „fiscal pact“ [subjecting EU member states to centralized control of their budgets]. His reason is quoted by „Die Presse“ as follows:
I will not sit in a government that will lead the Czech Republic outside the mainstream of European integration. We have a vital interest in sitting at the table and participate in major decisions that affect us strongly.

Far from the German media spotlight three of the most respected lawyers in France are preparing a complaint for crimes against humanity before French tribunals. They will represent the interests of the victims of the ongoing NATO bombing in Libya. Defendant: Nicolas Sarkozy.

I hope native English speakers will excuse the many mistakes in the translation. I could have avoided them by first writing down the translation, then reading out. But this is a video, and I intended to preserve its oral character.

First of all: defense is probably the most important prerequisite for the undisputed sovereignty of a country. And sovereignty in international law and state law includes the integrity of national territory and the decisions of government.
Those who have saved up some minimal residual sympathy for the Federal Republic and perhaps even secretly hope that the media are not brought into line as if by an invisible force, may, with Google’s new search algorithm, search for the term „smart defense“. Surprise! No German-language newspaper or television station reported on the results of the signing of the Brussels conference of NATO defense ministers.
Thanks to the semi-government Russian RIA-Novosti, there are fortunately a little clarification:
Hostility Toward Germans Part III:
White Guilt and Islamic Chauvinism
Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage

A translation of a German blog posted at
[Following is Part III of my lecture “Hostility Towards the Germans – Taking Stock” which was presented to the Institut für Staatspolitik (Institute for State Policy) as part of the 18th Berlin Colloquium on 16 July 2011.]
Expansion of the Paradign of anti German Hostility
to the Entire West
As we have seen, hostility toward Germany and Germans exists on three levels.
On the lowest (first) level, it is the kind of hostility or antagonism that is directed toward a specific Volk or people (in our case the Germans.)
On this level we are dealing with simple resentments dating to former antagonisms (such as those with the Poles, English and Jews.)

[Part I of my lecture on “Hostility Towards Germans” dealt with the ideology that has resulted from the anti German narrative in the West.
I described how and why this ideology has always been and will always be inappropriate for Germany.
In the following section I discuss the consequences that necessarily derive from the adoption of this narrative by the Germans themselves.
In conclusion I discuss the role played by leftist ideology in the overall complex of hostility toward Germans.]
German Adoption of the Western anti German Narrative
[This article was published on july 29, 2011 (when Gaddafi was still in power) in Korrektheiten: „Darf der Internationale Strafgerichtshof (IStGH) Gaddafi verhaften?„, Author and translator: Manfred Kleine-Hartlage]
Does no one really wonder about the fact that the International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant against Muammar al-Qaddafi? Is he actually allowed to do so?
This court was established by the signatories of the Rome Statute to prosecute certain crimes (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, aggression) to punish countries whose own judiciaries are not willing or not able to prosecute such acts; thus, classically, for the prosecution of government crimes and crimes of private parties in „failed states“ with no working justice system.
The public was told that the Court will be active only for crimes on the territories of signatory states, and certainly any state is free to join such an agreement and to give its provisions domestic legal force. Equally obvious is that no state has the right unilaterally to subject another sovereign state to its jurisdiction or to authorize third parties to do so. And what is forbidden to one state is equally forbidden to many.

The blog begins:
[On 16 July 2011 the author gave a lecture before the Berlin Institute for State Policy on the subject of “Hostility Towards Germans – An Appraisal” in conjunction with the Institute’s 18th Course of Lectures. Unfortunately there are no recordings of this highly interesting event. In response to requests, I have reconstituted my speech from notes. Since the lecture is too long for a single blog article I am posting it as a series, beginning with “The Anti-German Narrative in the West.]
To prepare for an interview with Carolyn Yeager, Schattenkoenig worked out in English the following thoughts to highlight some crucial aspects of Germany’s (and, in general, the West’s) situation.
I. The German concept of Geopolitik
The term describes an outline of global political strategies centered on the German Reich and founded in the tradition of holistic views which had dominated German thinking since the Middle Ages, when the Reich (Holy Roman Empire of Germanic Nation) had formed a kind of ordering brace for nations which maintained their autonomy and national character. In the new age, a more genetic viewpoint was established, giving respect to different peoples’ characters.
Most important seems to me the rooting of German Geopolitik in a scientific and rationally gained perspective of what is given naturally. It thinks of peoples as of what they really are and what their realistic potentials are, instead of forming peoples according to some utopian ideology which is inadequate for reality. The powers victorious over Germany in 1945 were unfortunately following ideological concepts and had little respect for peoples’ natural conditions. If reality causes their utopian views to fail, the worse they make it turn out for reality which will be forced to „change“ – until all the world will wake up in a new totalitarian and globe-spanning Soviet Union with no freedom left to speak out the facts.
The crucial question to any Western conservative is why our nations seem to have completely lost their will to survive and flourish. The following text, first published by Judith in „Vaterland“, December 281h, 2010, highlights the methods with which one nation was made lose this will. So this article is not on German self-pity or on accusing the allied nations. Read what was done in Germany as a blueprint to be applied anywhere.
Translation by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage:
In his book „Die Psychologie der Niederlage“ (The Psychology of Deafeat), Thorsten Hinz calls it „the third war against Germany“: The time after 1945 when after the bombs the psychological warfare started – a war that hasn’t stopped up to now. Hans-Joachim von Leesen names in his worth reading essay the institutions, the means, the methods and the compliant assistants.
