    There were plans announced to reform car taxes, talk about energy taxes, about the reorganization of pig farms and about CO2 taxes. It will come as no surprise to the people who have been following the debate about a planned economic demolition for some time: The Corona recovery fund is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is an economically red Marxist plan in a green climate jacket.

    The Great Reset has been sold as a dire necessity to “restore” our economy, said Van Houwelingen. “Reform of energy taxes, we read. That means more tax on gas and less on electricity. Everyone with a central heating boiler is therefore the loser. In other words, the ordinary Dutchman,” said the MP.

    “Another measure is the introduction and tightening up of the CO2 tax industry, it states. That means that the industry would have to pay more money for every ton of CO2. That is of course passed on to the Dutch citizen, in other words to all of us. Finally, the subsidy scheme for the remediation of pig farms. That means reducing the livestock, because you have to eat less meat.

    “What the hell do these kinds of measures have to do with Corona? Do you see what’s happening? The so-called Corona crisis is being used to permanently and thoroughly change our way of life,” emphasized Van Houwelingen.

    “In other words, this fund is – unsurprisingly – being misused by the European Union to achieve globalist objectives. Because as the Netherlands, we have to jump through all kinds of hoops to be able to claim this fund, a fund that is filled with Dutch tax money. How absurd is this?

    “They are obstacles and demands that have nothing, absolutely nothing to do with economic recovery. For example, in the letter that the cabinet sent to the House on March 28, we read the following: ‘For example, 37 percent of expenditure must be climate-related and 20 percent of expenditure must be aimed at the digital transition’.”

    The creators of the European Corona recovery fund have come up with six pillars to save the economy in the EU. “These are six requirements that are imposed on the Dutch Corona recovery plan that must be submitted in Brussels in order to be able to claim our own tax money, six hoops through which the cabinet and the House have to jump. Green transition, digital transformation, smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, social and territorial cohesion, health and economic, social and institutional resilience and finally policies for the next generations. In other words, an implementation of the globalist Sustainable Development Goals. Thus the Great Reset, a total transformation of our way of life. That is the true nature of this so-called Corona recovery fund.

    “It’s no longer about Corona or lockdowns or masks, it’s about the bigger picture. It is about control over every aspect of life. Again and again new symptoms, new manifestations and materializations of the same underlying trend: the ever-increasing control of an ever more powerful State, towering over the permanently small and vulnerable individual with each step. This so-called Recovery and Resilience Plan also fits into this picture. It’s about the transfer of power and control from the individual to the State,” concluded Van Houwelingen.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.

    FREEZING IN THEIR HOMES is the new grim reality for many Brits and Northern Europeans. Margaret is 92 years old and has just come in from the winter cold, but no warmth awaits her at home. She fears her own home more than the icy streets. Next to her are four thick blankets, and on the shelf above the fireplace, which she can no longer afford to buy wood for, is a meter showing the daily cost of electricity (inset). It shows £1.03, about 13 SEK. When it reaches £3, about 38 SEK, she is forced to turn off the little heat she has to afford it. Still image: ITW News

    Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold

    Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
