Message of the Day – A Quote

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”–George Santayana, The Life of Reason, 1905. 

This quote was prompted by an item in yesterday’s WIND Daybreak email in which the following was noted:

Germany to Place Covid Rule Breakers in Camps

Of all countries, you’d think Germany would know better. 

From the disturbing story in the Daily Mail: 

 the eastern state of Saxony has confirmed plans to hold quarantine-flouters in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp set to be build next week.

The regional state claimed that the facility will only be used for people who have repeatedly flouted lockdown rules around self-isolation.

Baden-Württemberg in south-west Germany will use two hospital rooms to detain repeat offenders, who will be guarded by police.

In Brandenburg, authorities will detain a section of a refugees centre, while Schleswig-Holstein will use an area within a juvenile detention centre.

  1. I lament the fact that pirate radio is not a good means of spreading underground information, because it truly is difficult to censor.

    Print is good, but the general public doesn’t read much, especially not thoughtful pieces requiring background knowledge.

    Web is of course king, but it’s easily censored when the userbase gets above a certain size, if the political will is there to quash it.

  2. This should also say those who were not taught nor bother to do their homework to find out what the past was are doomed!

  3. Victors write the history books. Had the South won the Civil War, the world would be a far better place.
