I take the title of this column from a 1994 British film, “The Madness of King George,” which dramatizes the enveloping insanity of George III, the monarch who lost America and was losing his mind. George kept committing actions that were “embarrassing” to the nation, but most of all, to the dignity of his station. Doctors were at a loss to diagnosis and possibly correct the king’s bizarre behavior and eccentricities. Given the primitive state of mental and physical science of the time, they were reduced to examining his stool for clues to a remedy. The only doctor to make a semblance of progress was one who insisted that all regal niceties be dropped and the King be put through a régimen of what only could be called, in military circles, “square bashing.” George would be put in a straight jacket every time he “misbehaved.”
But George III’s madness was a low-level one compared to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policy of madness. She cannot help but be aware of the insanity and the suicidal consequences of her policies, but she chooses them. George’s madness could not be corrected with rational persuasion or introspection. He was not capable of conscious irrationality. His mind careened in its own world of causo-connections.
As does Merkel’s.
Merkel’s madness, seeks to reduce her nation to being a deferential caliphate of Islam against the will of the non-Islamic population, which is expected to meld peacefully without complaint with the savages, rapists, thieves and welfare parasites. It is based on the madness of her brand of collectivism, Marxism.
Marxism itself is a system of madness that defies or denigrates human volition and goes against any measure of rationality. If you were born in a certain “class,” preferably a poor one, then you were destined to become a communist, or at least a socialist, and resent anyone better off economically than you. Dialectical Materialism brands you from the beginning and you have no choice about what you are and what you condition is. Your economic condition or circumstances indelibly “condition” how you think and behave.
Wikipedia has this description of Marxism:
Marxism is a method of socioeconomic analysis that analyzes class relations and societal conflict using a materialist interpretation of historical development and a dialectical view of social transformation. It originates from the mid-to-late 19th century works of German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
Marxist methodology originally used a method of economic and sociopolitical inquiry known as historical materialism to analyze and critique the development of capitalism and the role of class struggle in systemic economic change.
To Merkel’s mind, immigrants who rape, murder, or turn into bloody jihadis are just that way, through no fault of their own, it’s their cultural heritage, and they must not be judged according to Western measures of civil conduct, they were just born that way, and extraordinary efforts must be made to persuade them to be nice, and not commit crimes. They are blameless because that was how they were born.
On the other hand, native Germans must make an effort to accommodate migrants and Muslims, and form a societal union with them until all conflict between Western and Muslim culture ceases. Unfortunately, the only “dialect” Muslims practice and understand is force. “Peace” in Islamic “dialectics” means your submission, or your death.
If you ever knew freedom under capitalism, you will, because of inevitable, irresistible Hegelian forces, come to question capitalism and your freedom, and argue for impersonal anonymity as a member of a “class.” Your mind and your values will automatically change. You will no longer value freedom. You will be absorbed into a great collective. You will become one with the “Borg.”
The Phenomenology of Spirit charts the development of consciousness as it rises from lowly common sense to the heights of what Hegel calls ‘absolute knowing’ – the unconditioned form of thinking proper to philosophy itself.
Angela Merkel (born 1954) was, in a sense, “ready-made” to become the nation-destroying beast she is now. Wikipedia reports her early years:
Like most young people in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), Merkel was a member of the Free German Youth (FDJ), the official youth movement sponsored by the ruling Socialist Unity Party. Membership was nominally voluntary, but those who did not join found it difficult to gain admission to higher education] She did not participate in the secular coming of age ceremony Jugendweihe, however, which was common in East Germany. Instead, she was confirmed. Later, at the Academy of Sciences, she became a member of the FDJ district board and secretary for “Agitprop” (Agitation and Propaganda). Merkel claimed that she was secretary for culture. When Merkel’s one-time FDJ district chairman contradicted her, she insisted that: “According to my memory, I was secretary for culture. But what do I know? I believe I won’t know anything when I’m 80.” Merkel’s progress in the compulsory Marxism-Leninism course was graded only genügend (sufficient, passing grade) in 1983 and 1986.
After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, it was easy for her to make the transition from a communist political environment to a statist one, once East Germany was dissolved.
“It’s been our misfortune of have the wrong religion. Why didn’t we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammadan religion too would have been much more acceptable to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?” (p. 165, “Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy“, by Eric Metaxas)
Merkel’s Muslim-friendly actions in favor of Islam are basically, part and parcel of Hitler’s admiration of Islam as a complete and unmovable state, society, state of mind, and existence. I’m certain that the historical ideational connection has occurred to her and her Party, but it can’t be one she appreciates or wishes to draw attention to. An article by Joost Niemöller, appearing on the Gates of Vienna in August 2015, states:
It is well known that Mein Kampf is still very popular in the Muslim world: for example, in Egypt and some Arab countries. But also in Turkey. In Iran or in Pakistan. Germans in the Islamic world are being addressed enthusiastically, because they hail from “The Land of Hitler”. Not so long ago I heard this again from a German friend who travels to the Middle East regularly. In the Islamic world a direct link is being drawn between Hitler’s warfare and the Jihad. At the same time it’s very fashionable among Muslims to deny the Holocaust, which in the eyes of an anti-Semitic would rather damage Hitler’s status as a hero; why then still read his book? But then the denial of the Holocaust is again necessary to refuse the justification for the State of Israel.
“It’s been our misfortune of have the wrong religion. Why didn’t we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good?

When it comes to feeding hate, logic is irrelevant.
Mein Kampf‘s popularity in the Muslim world is only one signal. Many links exist between Nazism and present day Islamism. One of the abundant examples is the fact that the fake document “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, promoted by the Nazi ideologist Rosenberg, which would be the ultimate proof of a Jewish complot to overthrow the Christian world, became popular again among the PLO via the Islamic world….
Of course it is characteristic of the existing politically correct climate that such thoroughly researched and well-founded historical works do not constitute part of any basic debate about Islam in the mainstream media. Presently Islam is part of an obsolete multicultural society; anybody criticizing this is a kind of Nazi. That the truth is in fact the other way around is a very unwelcome message: both Islamic and Nazi ideologies not only have common elements, but also have a common history. This continues today and by itself provides enough reason to dig further.
Yes, we know that Mein Kampf is popular in the Muslim world.
Yes, we know Amin el-Husseini, the Jew-hating Jerusalem Mufti, who was linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and who hooked up with the Nazi empire. We know that one picture of his meeting with Hitler. We know that after the war he was left unpunished and remained active in the Middle East.
The popularity of Mein Kampf in the Middle East is no coincidence.
Amin el-Husseini was not just a bizarre anomaly.
The broad distribution of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in the Muslim world is part of a bigger picture. In that picture, Hitler plays a leading role.
I am convinced that Merkel’s German establishment is on the side of the “atrocious people,” not the German population. The same goes for the rest of the EU establishment country by country. I must say the same about the British establishment. For God’s sake, London has a Muslim mayor??? Sharia courts blossom all over the place, and while declared illegal, are left to operate? Muslims of all shades run riot over school girls? But Merkel sheds crocodile tears over the victims of the Berlin truck attack. I don’t believe there was a word of sincerity in her “Oh! How awful!”
But she is not going to do a damned substantial thing, no volte-face against her immigration policies will be emanate from her, except for the proposed pathetic burqa ban. She’s got too much invested in “transforming” Germany into a “brown” nation (as Obama has admitted is one of his goals for America), or into a non-Western country. In virtually every instance of terrorism, “migrants” have been responsible and they’re going to continue running trucks over infidels. She let them in, welcomed them, and saddled German’s with the stupendous welfare bill. Merkel is a kind of Mother Teresa, fully vested in a kind of nationalist altruism; “We must take care of refugees, help to cure their sores and give them chances in life, jobs, etc.; it is the duty of every German to help the government in that crusade, even if it kills them…..
