The looming economic crisis is not yet obvious. After the drama of the last two years, people are just finding their way back to their joie de vivre. Behind the scenes, however, desperation is growing and will soon inevitably reach the middle classes as well. According to the entrepreneur, there are numerous ways to prevent at least the worst. But the government remains passive. A circumstance that makes Markel consciously choose the term “traitor”.

The traitors to their own people
It’s very thin ice. I hesitated for a very long time and was extremely reluctant to do so. In my opinion, you have to be extremely sensitive to some terms. There are designations and words in our language that are historically so burdened that they unfortunately spontaneously trigger false associations when used and one should immediately clarify what is NOT meant. But sometimes the facts are so clear that there is no way out and then you just have to reach for the brutal truth. And this truth is – what the Austrian federal government is doing these weeks (or rather what you are NOT doing) is actually a betrayal of its own people!
This unbearable accumulation of Iincompetence, inability, lack of empathy, fanaticism and inhumanity, which accumulates in this worst government of all times, commits the greatest betrayal of the people in my lifetime by constantly doing NOTHING! I know it’s uncomfortable and nobody really wants to stumble into the next mega-crisis after the horror and madness of the last two years, but it doesn’t matter what we WISH for. FACT is – the crisis IS ALREADY HERE! And it will be bigger and more powerful than anything we have experienced before. Unfortunately. And unstoppable.
Surveillance, censorship, migration, Covid hysteria, lockdowns, exclusion, shreds of obedience – even violations of fundamental rights and gene experiments through new vaccines and compulsory vaccination. All of these are issues that upset you and of course me too, are things that we must fight. But in the end it all works out these things towards the same solution – no matter what THEY want or decide, all these problems can be solved if we JUST STOP PART OF IT! Speak your mind, ignore another lockdown, just stop wearing masks and just don’t get spiked if you don’t want to! They can make vaccination compulsory if we as a population simply do not participate and BOYCOTT it!
Every day of doing nothing makes things worse
But the collapse of our economy and then society, the skyrocketing inflation and devaluation, the impoverishment and desperation of ever larger parts of the population – we cannot make that disappear through boycotts! The crisis and madness of the last two years could arise because the majority of the population PARTICIPATED, because we ALLOWED it. But NOW IT IS IRRELEVANT WHAT WE WANT AND ALLOW – now the mega crisis is here and this tsunami will sweep over us whether we want it or not and that NONE of us will be able to ignore. All we have left is ACT NOW, now a whole set of measures to prevent at least the WORST!
- Price freeze and price cap through state regulation of basic foodstuffs, freezing of fuel prices through reduction of taxes and merciless punishment of speculation (e.g. weekend increases)
- Most Generous Support through direct payments to lower income earners, temporary cancellation of taxes and levies, being forced to pass on this reduction, tax deferral and tax waivers for companies, economic stimulus programs, cancellation of support for all unnecessary luxury problems (who needs conversion and support from gender nonsense or name dancing?).
- Austria First – Immediate exit from the suicidal/moronic sanctions against Russia and an end to the insanity of abandoning neutrality.
- Normalize relations with Russia and ensuring the delivery of cheap energy sources from the world’s largest supplier of raw materials!
There are dozens of ways to help the people of our country and this help must be discussed IMMEDIATELY, decided IMMEDIATELY and implemented IMMEDIATELY – EVERY day counts here, doing nothing every day makes it worse Situation And gets us deeper in the shit And what is this worst, most inept and most inhumane government ever doing? THEY DO NOT DO ANYTHING! All so-called reliefs are a hoax, it is a bottomless cheek what these losers want to sell us as reliefs! In truth they do just close your eyes and ignore the problem – the ÖVP. Or they are easy completely incapable of rational thinkingbecause they are essentially a sect of fanatics, a completely irrational collection of prophets of doom and prohibition addicts – the Greens!
The government is completely failing the population
This inaction annoyed me at first, then my indignation at the callousness and lack of empathy with which the alleged relief was presented grew every day – I remember the kidding with the 150 euro energy cost subsidy, which will only be paid next year. And with every week that NOTHING was done to help the people of Austria, my anger grew. Every day, I see growing desperation from tenants, employees, reader comments, and personal messages. My bank contacts tell me heartbreaking incidents and fates, it just keeps getting worse.
Yes, you don’t notice anything in people’s behavior yet, you can see a renewed joie de vivre after the pandemic (WHICH IS OVER!) and people want to take a break from worries and hardships – but that will generally pass quickly, reality will soon also reach far up into the bourgeois middle class. Very soon. At the moment it is still the lower income groups who literally have to decide between freezing and starving, but a look at the bank account and the open bills will also show the entire middle class the drama of the situation by the end of the summer at the latest. It’s only going to get worse every month.
AND YOU DO NOTHING!
So coming back to the beginning of my blog post, because it’s no longer incompetence, it’s no longer blindness, given the drama of the situation and the incredible inaction of these losers, it’s hard to call it what it is:
THEY, the people who run this country – THEY ARE BETRAYING US! They are completely failing the people they all work for and pay their taxes for! Today and here I do not want to discuss whether it is intentional or incompetent – because the result is what counts. What is happening now is a betrayal of the people.
And that has to stop.
