Germany is training dogs to sniff out people who have COVID. It seems that Merkel keeps dreaming up more means to restrict the citizens by using the Stasi tactics of East Germany where she grew up. A friend grew up behind the wall. When it fell, his father obtained the Stasi file on him, just as the BigTech and governments now build files on everyone. In that file, his father read that all his friends were reporting him to the Stasi. He no longer retains any friends, for his trust in humanity was destroyed. When his father returned home, he began punching holes in the walls. My friend thought his father was nuts. But then he was pulling out microphones where the government was always listening to whatever he said, even at home.
Let’s get honest here. The only other intelligence agency to collect evidence on everyone was the notorious Stasi of East Germany. When the wall came down, the extent of the secret police operations targeted against their own people was mind-blowing. What surfaced was their “smelling jars” collection. Yes, the Stasi used odor recognition to keep tabs on anyone they suspected. The Stasi often collected the samples covertly by breaking into homes to stealing a suspects’ used underwear. They then kept them in jars in case they turned up missing to hunt them down.
I find this very disturbing when COVID has a kill ratio of only 0.028% and governments are using this to wipe out all freedom and human rights which include the freedom of speech.
