 Populations of most European nations are not pleased with Germany’s financial prominence, and its tight fiscal control over the continent’s finances. 

 As he shows Greek protesters preparing to burn a past German Nazi flag, Robert Marquand of the Christian Science Monitor writes:  “Critics say Germany is a bully, twisting Europe’s arm with an austerity regime that will bring subservience.”  Marquand summarizes the core criticisms:

 “Europe cannot quickly become another Germany; Austerity ignores short-term pain and possible chaos; There is no realistic growth plan for drastically shrinking economies; and The German Doctrine will force changes in the eurozone, perhaps even pushing Greece out . . . , etc.”

 Other critics also insist Germany is not concerned with the affects its policies have on other nations.  Economist Stephen King writes:  “the eurozone is in danger of shifting towards a Ptolemaic system with Germany at its center…. It requires economic adjustment by others to protect the interests of German taxpayers and voters… [making] the system as a whole increasingly unstable.”

 This is all so mindful of Germany’s history with the rest of the world!

 In two of his essential books––“Germany’s Aims in the First World War” and “World Power of Decline:  The Controversy Over Germany’s Aims in the First World War”––Fritz Fischer uses extensive research to prove that Germany intentionally instigated the First World War.

 Fischer argues that Germany provoked Austria into war because it wanted greater prominence as a leader on the world stage.  He posits that not only did Kaiser Wilhelm II want such elevation, but the leadership of his military, as well as journalists, labor leaders, business scions, etc., all shared this desire.  In fact, Fischer says,  these ideas were accepted within the entire German population.

 firstworldwar.com says:  “Wilhelm was an overtly militaristic man, and believed fervently in increasing the strength of Germany’s armed forces. . . Following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary on 28 June 1914, Wilhelm . . .[Germany] incited Austria-Hungary to exact revenge against Serbia.  Events spiraled throughout July resulting in the First World War.”

 Of course, German politicians, journalists and scholars were outraged when Fischer’s first book was published.  For decades,  they labeled his accusations preposterous.  But Fischer took his position as a prominent German historian who based his thesis on exhaustive research in official government archives.
 
 History repeated itself in World War II.  Today, Germany’s control of Europe becomes a backdrop for World War III.  As Finis Dake points out in his Annotated Bible, the fourth horseman prepares his ride when Germany’s head leads Europe’s body and The Middle East into World War III!  More on this in future blogs.
