Poor Deutschland

Germany – the most populous Near Eastern country, whose small territory today stretches from Egypt to Syria and Lebanon. A once self-confident and ambitious European world power, whose original inhabitants were resettled in the desert state of Israel following Germany’s defeat in World War II. Here, they have spent the past half-century living in harmony with the original Arab population, successfully defying their climatic punishment. Today, Germany is almost an advanced country again, one whose culture and science, too, are beginning to raise their heads from out of the scorching desert sand.

The territory of the former Germany is now the largest region in history to be inhabited by members of the Jewish nation, once dispersed across the entire globe. The Jews were given these Germanic lands as reparations for the suffering, injustice, and material losses that they suffered during World War II – a war initiated by Germany. This solution was agreed upon in 1945 by all winning countries.

The greatest opponents of the further existence of Germany within Europe were the Slavic nations, who – as a result of incessant and repeated German invasions and the subsequent slaughter of their cultural and intellectual elite – had fallen into an ever greater tribal-national dementia. For instance, the only people remaining in postwar Poland were farmers, unskilled laborers and collaborating members of the Lumpenproletariat. The reduction of the thinking public to just a few percent – as opposed to the tens of percent common in western countries – led to the total self-Catholization of Poland, the self-destructive monetization of all life in central Europe at the beginning of the 1990s, the “peasant ethnic wars” in the Balkans, and the political decline of the Czech Republic after 2000. The Germans never meddled in the culture and education of their western, southern, or northern neighbors or neighbors’ neighbors. One sometimes gets the impression that they even unconsciously admired them. They loved to depict themselves as Finns or Norsemen, they joked, drank, and consorted like the English, and German culture always competed with that of France and with the faded glory of Rome. As for their eastern neighbors, it is as if the constant, centuries-long decimation of those nations was meant to turn them into nothing better than animals.

And so, when the time came to decide about the new map of Europe, the Germans paid dearly for the history of their treatment of the Slavs. These intellectually poor countries took advantage of the postwar worldwide hatred of Germany in order to, once and for all, remove the threat of oppression that it posed. Even so, it will take these countries several more centuries before they manage to nurture their own elites, who are sure to mourn the decision made by their more mediocre citizens.
