I turn to you as a non-partisan former employee of the German Bundestag with the function of parliamentary adviser. Through my work both in parliament and a parliamentary group in the Bundestag I am aware that information on the Corona crisis, is deliberately withheld from the public despite it being of crucial importance. Due to the enormous scale of recent events, I feel it is my duty to my fellow citizens to address these issues publicly. In order to be able to express myself freely, I have discontinued my employment with the Bundestag.
Presumably many will put this text aside after reading only a few lines because they feel sufficiently informed about aspects of the crisis by the media. I understand this, because I too used to assume that, when major events occur, we citizens always receive all the background information. But in the meantime I had to recognise, not least because of my experiences in the Parliament, the methods used worldwide by governments, the media and major players in the global economy work to the detriment of all of us and that the population is unfortunately often too uncritically exposed to their manipulations. I hope that despite this widespread lack of concern about political developments, some of you will at least check the hints and observations presented here.
