On the superiority of the Aryan race…

In Paris, the idea that Germans are just harder-working than everyone else is fairly widespread among the bourgeois. It’s more convenient to our overlords to have us think that Germans are genetically/culturally superior to everyone else than to allow reality to debunk the myth that workers in both France and the US have to work at third-world wages in order to compete globally.

That’s why explanations of Germany’s/the EU’s behavior that revolve around them being afraid of 1920’s level inflation fall flat to me – if anything, the fact that they did something before means that they’re more likely to do it again.

This stuff about Germans being more industrious, more responsible, more deserving, and just plain better than everyone else sounds oddly familiar.
