People of Germany, I have one thing to say. I apologize. I apologize for the miscommunication that has led to such panic. The public announcements regarding Germany's Syndicalist parties were poorly worded and unexplained, creating confusion regarding the government's true stance. Our Vice-Chancellor has reassured you that our goal is just. Now, I shall explain how we came to our decision.
As you all know, our Syndicalist parties, during the elections, received money from the Internationale. This, in and of itself, is not worrying in a significant way. However, the recent spate of Syndicalist revolts around the world were ALSO funded by the Internationale. And that funding was not merely in the form of money. Obviously, it is this that worries the government. Thus, our restrictions and surveillance will only be temporary, as our primary aim is to root out the advocates of violence within the Syndicalist parties and clear the good name of those who seek to take power democratically. Will we outlaw Syndicalism in Germany? No! It is as valid a political belief as any, and the situation of the world around us does not change that. Will we hunt down every last traitor, on the Left or on the Right, who seeks to bring the ruin of revolution over Germany? Forever!
People of Germany, forgive me and my government, for we have caused you undue worry, even though I personally promised that you would sleep well at night. People of Germany, rest easy, for your right to freedom of conscience remains untouched.
Regarding the issues that face us, the government is taking decisive action. Hermann Goering has been arrested by loyal Army units, and is being transported to Berlin under maximum security for trial on charges of high treason. No German is above the law. However, I stress that he will receive a fair trial, with the right to defend himself against charges.
Foreign Minister NrmK has collected a list of nations with whom we can band together against the Syndicalist threat. Our primary condition to would-be allies is reform towards democracy. This has been one of the founding principles of the German Empire, and it shall not be lost, for without it, we are no better then the Syndicalists. Our principles and our land must be protected.
(OOC: hey TRP...this counts as us choosing "Answer him" in the "Rogue Politician" event, right? )
