The start of 2021 saw something unprecedented take place in the online world. Twitter banned the President of the United States from using their platform. Big Tech has banned those with dissenting views before, but this is the first time they took on the supposedly most powerful man in the world. The big question that it raises is: Do private companies have a right to ban whoever they wish, or is it an attack on that person’s right to freedom of speech?
Last year wasn’t a good year for most people. Lockdowns ruined businesses, and led many people to lose their jobs. Simultaneously a surprising large portion of the economy kept running, largely due to government support. However, they weren’t able to protect everything. Tourism got destroyed. Southern European economies, like Spain, rely heavily on tourism. No surprise that Spain’s economy, its GDP, shrank with 12.8% in 2020. The number isn’t final yet, but is an estimate from November 2020, meaning that despite a possible correction, it won’t be far off.
The EU has the Eurozone as an internal block, but not the whole EU belongs to the Eurozone. The economic demise of Europe will pull the Eurozone closely together at a rapid pace, while the non-Euro countries are left behind. Europe moves at a different speed, a different pace.

How Uncontrolled, Unrestricted, and Unlimited Migration Destroys the West
On this website, we have tried to counter many of the false narratives that promote migration into Europe. Moreover, we have shown that the demographic change into Europe is real, and the consequences will be dire. Joseph R. Oxfield has gone one step further and written a book, ‘The Migration Myth‘.
If you are a Turk living in Europe, who should you listen to? Should you listen to Macron who condemns the Islamic terrorism, or should you listen to Erdogan who condemns Macron for condemning Islam? Are you loyal to your origin country and religion, or to the country where you live? Moreover, how should the European governments deal with these Turkish, and Islamic, minorities? That is a question that is gaining in relevance as tensions rise between France and Erdogan. That is the Turkish question.
On the 16th of July 2019 the European Union selected its new highest functions. We use the word ‘selected’, as opposed to ‘elected’. There is not much democracy involved when a few influential bureaucrats bicker in backrooms until they can find a person nobody is strongly opposed to. Even the pope has a higher claim to democracy, since the entire college of cardinals is allowed to vote.
One of the basic principles of government, is that it is there to protect its citizens. Without that, why does the government even exist? Why would it be allowed to exist and extract resources from the population? Should we not be constantly vigilant to ensure that government serves to benefit the people that it rules over?
Austria. Once the heart of a great Empire, now a small land-locked nation in the middle of Europe. The country inhabits around 8.8 million citizens. The population is growing, mostly due to the inflow of migrants. How will the demographic future of Austria look?
