Requiem Kohl

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Herr Helmut Josef Michael Kohl died. As Winston Churchill said to the House of Commons in July 1940 about himself, (see Fog of Chaos -News from the Front yesterday) ‘history will judge him’. If one should say only good about the dead then I can say he was bon viveur, womaniser and steadfast politician’s politician, unwaveringly following the winds of change, be they personified by Axmann, Honecker, Reagan or Gorbachev.

After a short stint in Hitlerjugend young Helmut (16) joined CDU in 1946 and was elected to his first political post when he was 29. Not surprisingly, he had not done a day of honest work since. Also not surprisingly, germanophobe Angela Merkel was his protégé and his two sons have a Korean and a Turkish wife each.

I almost missed this important news of the funeral but for a casual glance at the TV screen. Tired Clinton was trying to hide his boredom, side by side with sour Angela. The stagecraft was impressive, resembling both The Star Wars intergalactic parliament and Leni Riefenstahl’s The Triumph of the Will. Later I found out the theatre took place in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Outside stood fit young men, perhaps Russians, with posters “Thanks for Europe”.


About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Ruling class has to create shows for the plebs, otherwise they could start thinking.

    Who benefited from the reunification of Germany? Ordinary people?

  3. Morticia says:

    Ignorance and apathy of ordinary people is depressing. Perhaps they deserve to be mastered over by Soros etc.

    So Kohl’s grandchildren can leave the fatherland for Korea and Turkey motherlands with their mothers when Europe crashes? Smart grandpapa.
