Soon after World War II in 1945, the USSR occupation began restricting the freedom of East Germans to travel into West Germany.
In the beginning, the restrictions were mild, much as we’re seeing in nations like the US today– more red tape, longer waits, and so on. Not a lot a ban on travel as a nuisance. Today, as in Germany in 1945, the would-be tourist is getting utilized to the idea of gaining approval to take a trip. Just a procedure, folks, sorry for the inconvenience.
But then, with little fanfare, East Germany was formally stated the German Democratic Republic (GDR), and the prospect of worldwide travel began to change.
Emigration laws were tightened. A propaganda pamphlet released at that time read:
“Both from the ethical standpoint as well as in regards to the interests of the entire German nation, leaving the GDR is an act of political and ethical backwardness. Those who let themselves be recruited objectively serve West German Reaction and militarism, whether they understand it or not. Is it not despicable when for the sake of a few appealing task offers or other false guarantees about a ‘surefire future’ one leaves a nation in which the seed for a brand-new and more beautiful life is sprouting, and is currently showing the very first fruits, for the location that favors a brand-new war and destruction?
Is it not an act of political wickedness when people, whether youths, employees, or members of the intelligentsia, leave and betray what our people have developed through typical labor in our republic, to offer themselves to the American or British secret services or work for the West German factory owners, Junkers, or militarists? Does not leaving the land of progress for the morass of a historically dated social order demonstrate political backwardness and blindness?” Employees throughout Germany will demand punishment for those who today leave the German Democratic Republic, the strong bastion of the fight for peace, to serve the lethal enemy of the German people, the imperialists and militarists.”
Republikflucht was the term provided to those who sought to leave the GDR. It’s significant that the translation into English is “desertion from the republic.”
An unapproved exit from East Germany soon became punishable by jail time. It was just then that East Germans comprehended that they were prisoners in their own country. They had actually not seen the indication and had failed to leave when it was still possible.
After that time, the varieties of those who were able to leave dropped to several hundred annually (Some 75,000 failed and were captured and locked up.)
But definitely, all that’s old news. Of what interest is it to us today?
Well, as discussed above, a soft-closing of the US borders (and indeed all of the countries that make up the First World) has begun. After 9/11, security tightened up considerably. Then, with the beginning of the COVID hysteria, actual authorization to take a trip fell under the whim of the government. It stopped to be a right and is now a benefit that could be approved or gotten rid of as the federal government sees fit.
Many individuals invited this action, feeling that it guaranteed them higher safety, whilst others concerned it as a bit of an annoyance, but reasonable under the scenarios. Really few treated it as a warning.
However the hysteria over COVID-19 is waning. Masks are starting to vanish; children are beginning to return to school, churches are starting to re-open, so, undoubtedly, it was all for the best.
But there are now rumours that a new, more worrisome version of COVID-19 may be on the method. Need to this happen, it would be easy to understand if the government were to state that “We alerted individuals that everybody required to take the vaccine, but lots of didn’t listen. Now the whole nation will be paying for the error of a selfish couple of.”
So, will the jab ended up being necessary, as some people hope but others fear?
Well, it is more likely that a back-handed mandate would be imposed:
“We are not going to mandate that all homeowners receive the vaccine, but based upon past failures of those who declined vaccination, we would be careless if we were to enable those who are unvaccinated to leave their houses to go shopping, go to work, or travel.”
And a new threat has actually been revealed by the White House: the danger of a “Climate Change crisis” to be attended to with “a unified nationwide response to Climate Change.”
And this is currently being taken up by other nations in the First World cabal. The UK and Australia in specific have called for a World Health Organization environment lockdown. Under it, travel by air would just be approved “when it is ethically justifiable.”
That phrase is a fascinating one. Initially, it suggests that travel by air, particularly to leave the nation, will only be by permission. However there’s a secondary ramification: If you seek to travel, you ‘d much better have a damn great factor due to the fact that you’re a hazard to the Greater Good.
And at this point, it might be sensible to reread the East German handout above. The implications in the handout are the exact same as the language now in usage in choose countries.
The period of pre-conditioning the people is now total. Americans and residents of the other First World nations have now effectively been indoctrinated into the principle that their desire to live freely is not their right. They now live by authorization. It has actually been achieved nearly without notice. We now move into Phase II: the imposition of guidelines governing escape from the nation.
In essence, we have reached East Germany circa 1961. At that time, the pamphlet referenced above was published, and barriers of cinderblock and barbed wire began to appear between the GDR and “complimentary” West Germany.
The image above acquired global popularity at that time. It shows GDR border guard Hans Konrad Schumann. He was among the uncommon couple of who saw the writing on the wall and comprehended that his window of chance would be brief. He tossed off his rifle and leapt over the brand-new barbed wire barrier to the West.
It’s important to keep in mind that, in 1961, this was still quite easy to do, yet the huge majority of East Germans were too afraid to make the move. “Certainly,” they believed, “things are not as bad as they seem.”
The picture was entitled “Leap into Freedom” and ended up being an iconic sign worldwide.
Schumann committed his Republikflucht– his “desertion from the republic”.
If the reader lives in among the countries that are leading the way to the brand-new collectivism, this may be the time to think about whether Hans Schumann was right and whether this may be the time to follow him prior to the barrier becomes insurmountable.
Editor’s Note: We’ve seen federal governments institute the strictest controls on individuals and organizations in history. It’s been a swift removal of individual freedoms.
But this is simply the start …
Most people don’t realize the terrible things that might follow, consisting of negative rate of interest, the abolition of cash, and far more.
