The New Green Deal is being put into operation and European countries are living off energy prices. In some countries, the price of gas and electricity for households has increased several times. Elsewhere, prices have risen a little. And elsewhere, hardly at all.
An interesting discussion is taking place in Hungary. The Orbán government has managed to keep prices quite low – and has been criticised by the opposition for it! Péter Márki-Zay (a Catholic with seven children who admires George Soros), the head of the opposition, let it be known that “prices cannot stop at the border” and that it is good to make energy more expensive because it will motivate people to be more economical. That this “frugal behaviour” should consist of people throwing away their old cars and buying new hybrids is what we are used to from the lackeys of the global elites.
The statement that ‘prices cannot stop at the border’ should be remembered because it encapsulates the whole of economic globalism.
The statement that ‘prices cannot stop at the border’ should be remembered because it encapsulates the whole of economic globalism. When they decide in Brussels, energy prices for a shopkeeper in a Hungarian village are supposed to go up. When they decide in New York that the salary of that shop assistant should go down (it could theoretically be the other way round, but strangely enough, such decisions are not taken). In such a world, people are completely powerless against the decisions of the powerful. They can only vote for their national representatives, who are not supposed to have any influence on things.
Marki-Zay’s statement also shows the perfect interplay of economic interests and ideology. When we want to rip people off, there is an ideology to justify it. Conversely, that ideology would be meaningless and ridiculous if the powerful didn’t choose it to further their interests.
