“Let my people go,
Oppress’d so hard they could not stand,
Let my People go.”
The peoples of Europe are suppressed. Don’t fool yourself that living in the EU is good. It is not. The living standard of the average German has fallen in the last 15 years. The living standards of the Greeks, the Spanish and many others have been smashed. The EU is an instrument for the exploitation of the average people to the benefit of the few. And this is why your Oligarchs want you to be in the EU: To institutionalize your suffering and exploitation.
For me, as a German with strong liberal views, it is hard to say this, but it is true: The hope for a better Europe today comes from the East.
If Ukraine goes to the West, it will go into the sunset of a declining part of the world.
If you go East, you will go into the sunrise of a rich and prosperous commonwealth.
I wished we in Germany would have the choice that you have.
Make your choice wisely.
Dr. Bernhard Seitz
