Eugyppius” is a former academic who blogs about the pandemic aftermath and the pathological politics of modern Germany. He recently returned from observing the farmer protest in Berlin.

Eugyppius spent much of his life abroad and over a decade in American universities as a grad student and a teacher. He writes in English on Substack. He is very careful about revealing more of his identity given the extreme censorship and cancellation action in his country these days. You can find him at Eugyppius.com.

The KunstlerCast theme music is the beautiful Two Rivers Waltz written and performed by Larry Unger

    This guy correctly explains that the diesel tax is a new tax on farmers. The government falsely claims that they are ending a subsidy on diesel. If diesel costs the farmers $1 today and the government adds a 50 cent tax, that is a 50 cent tax hike. A subsidy is when the diesel price is €1 and the government gives the farmers 50 cents for every €1 of diesel they buy. The government has never given the farmers a subsidy.

      Most Americans probably don’t understand that Diesel prices in Germany (and all the EU) are hovering around $8 / gallon (€2 / liter). In the California one may pays about $1.20 in taxes on a gasoline price of probably $4 or more, so taxes are about 25-30%.

      In Germany it is reversed, taxes are probably about 300% of the fuel price, and much of this is a carbon tax, and there is about a 22% VAT in there as well.

      German Farmers, even without paying for the road, are probably paying 200% in extra taxes.

      Now throw in the fact that EV drivers, after all the subsidies, are not paying for carbon taxes even though much of the energy comes from coal fired plants, and EV drivers don’t have to pay any road tax.

    “For my own part, I agree with those who think that the tribes of Germany are free from all taint of inter-marriages with foreign nations, and that they appear as a distinct, unmixed race, like none but themselves.”

    -Germania c. 98 AD by Cornelius Tacitus

    There was no attempt to “murder people with a vaccine.” That’s tinfoil hat thinking.

    There was simply, as always, a desire amongst the largest players to generate the largest possible profits from the covid opportunity in this case, at any cost, provided it was not a cost borne by those players.

    Which resulted in de-facto murder. Ask yourself this: when has the desire to reap maximum profits not resulted in the collateral damage of widespread murder?

    Our system, our model, being at its core a death-machine. Death to everything, ultimately. Life rendered into cash. Business-as-usual with the covid fiasco in other words.

    It is quite frustrating and appalling to listen to two highly educated men discuss how the media is consistently marchining in lockstep and suppressing critical information from getting to the masses while refusing to mention that the media organs across the west and the EU are all under control of the Hebrews.

    Eugyppius rightly points out that the ((media)) cannot easily smear the farmers like they can anyone else daring to speak out against “the globalists”. ROFLMAO.

    This is clearly why the ADF is being smeared as being “ultra right wing”, just like Trump, even though Alice Weidel is a lesbian who is married to a Sri Lankan women and they are raising two adopted children. Old Adolph would be turning in his grave if anyone claimed she was a “Nazi”, yet the Jewish controlled media constantly make these insinuations just like they do with Trump whose daughter is a Lubbowitzer and a “Jewish convert”.
