The above film (in German, but with English subtitles) came to my attention thanks to a reader of this blog. There have been other films about Ludwig II of Bavaria, notably that of the director, Visconti: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_(film). I saw that film in the mid-1980s, but the original English-language version has been lost. The surviving dubbed versions (in Italian and German) are still available.
Ludwig II: a complex and disturbed person, but who left, famously, two great legacies— his castles, and the works of Wagner, who was supported financially by Ludwig.
What is less well-known (see the YouTube video below) is that Ludwig also did a huge amount to improve Bavaria in other ways, including the fields of education, transport and public sanitation.
Ludwig was one of two people considered as candidates suitable to be anointed as Kaiser of the united Germany. The other candidate was successful, and became Wilhelm II of Germany. The history of Germany and Europe might have been happier had Ludwig been chosen.
Wagner later went on to establish the Bayreuth Festspiel, which still exists (I myself have been to Bayreuth, though not to the Festspiel).

Why not? After all, the same number of hours could be worked; 10 hours per day. In fact, you could even have people work 3 days per week at 13 hours per day, but that might be seen as brutal, despite the great benefit of only having to work three days out of seven.
I daresay that many may question my reposting of tweets by Owen Jones (who is an ideologically-silly faux-“revolutionary”), particularly in view of the fact that he actually tweeted, some years ago, and to sinister Jewish-lobby sex pest and depressive John Woodcock (then a disloyal “Labour” MP, now posing as “Lord Walney”), that “John” should “block that guy [me]— he’s a neo-Nazi” (Woodcock complied, at once…makes one think).
My answer is that I do sometimes repost those whom I dislike or despise, if they make valid and/or accurate points. #MoralHighGround…
My assessment of Jones, from a couple of years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.
Much of the attack on free speech in Britain today, and for decades past, has come from the Jewish lobby. Most of the sources of msm news and comment are controlled by that same lobby, or cabal.
I myself have been attacked over the years, by fanatical Jews belonging to the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] and/or “UK Lawyers for Israel” [“UKLFI”], there being a considerable overlap in membership. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
The attacks on me did not start in 2014, and did not end in 2017. However, I am still here and, while my Twitter account was closed down at the instigation of the Jew-Zionists in 2018, my blog (started in late 2016) is still up and firing, so far.
As for the fanatics who oppose me, they all seem to be dying…; in fact, a number have already died, I believe. “Instant karma”, or just unconnected karma?
There is a huge attack on freedom of expression across the Western world (in much of the rest of the world, such freedom rarely existed anyway). Most of the attack is by the Jewish-Zionist element.
…yet Coren, a Jew, is still lucratively employed by the mass media, despite his disgusting behaviour. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren#Tweets_about_the_death_of_Dawn_Foster; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren#Polish_controversy.
Contrast that with my own treatment— disbarred, wrongfully, for having tweeted general comments about society and politics (in the end, just 5 tweets!). In fact, all of those tweets have stood the test of time, such as the one about the corrupt little Jew, Sarkozy, and that about Jewish-lobby puppet and expenses cheat, Michael Gove (at the time, I did not know that the little bastard was (or is still?) also both a drunk and a cocaine abuser).
Note: I should add that I was actually quite wrongfully disbarred in 2016. Not my assertion alone, incidentally.
In fact, the Bar Standards Board wrote to me a couple of years after my “trial” in 2016 to offer me a “retrial” (new hearing), because I should have been “tried” before a 3-person Tribunal panel (which has no power to disbar) instead of a 5-person panel (which does have the power to disbar).
I decided not to bother with a new hearing, partly because I thought that, had it gone back to Tribunal, and had I then been found “guilty” (such terminology is not in fact used), I might have been fined, and had no money with which to pay any likely fine. Maybe I was wrong. Still, I may change my mind, just to spite (((them)))!
Further, since the notorious Henry Hendron cases, it has been accepted that a barrister not holding a Practice Certificate both at time of “offence” and time of Tribunal, cannot be “tried” at all by the Bar regulation system, let alone disbarred. I myself last held a Practice Certificate in 2008, six years before the Jews (“UKLFI”) made their complaint against me, and two years before I joined Twitter.
As said above, I may decide to have the notional disbarment deleted, just to make the point, though obviously (?), at age 65, I have no wish to return to the practising Bar (which is now a dustbin full of trash anyway).
Readers might like to note also, that (contrary to what they may now read about me, as tweeted by a few crazed and fanatical Jews on Twitter) when I was at the practising Bar, I was mentioned favourably in the main legal directories, and was commended for my legal expositions, on several occasions, by judges in the High Court and County Court. As people say today, “just saying…”.

You can see where this is going: to get your (2022? 2023? later?) “Covid Social Passport”, you will have to get a monthly or three-monthly injection of useless rubbish. If you refuse to have it, or if the State thinks that you should be “denied” it (for the wrong opinions, or for dissident activities) then no injection, which = no right to travel, work away from home, get State benefits (because unable to attend DWP interviews etc), use shops, use NHS facilities, get medical or dental treatment, participate in public political activity etc. Effectively, house imprisonment, and a lingering death, ultimately….
This is not far from the Book of Revelation “mark of the Beast” scenario…

The tightening of the screws of the new British police state. It’s pretty much in plain view now, as is collaboration of the members of the corrupt “three main parties” cabal in the Houses of Parliament. NWO. ZOG.
A mouthpiece of the System (with a side order of controlled opposition), nothing more.
