GERMANY - Elon Musk to Build Gigafactory Near Berlin

Arno Froese

Elon Musk has said Brexit made it “too risky” to build Tesla’s first European plant in the United Kingdom, and opted for Germany instead.

The Tesla boss was at the award ceremony hosted by Bild newspaper accepting a Golden Steering Wheel award for the Model 3.

“Even if you discount the environmental situation, eventually we will run out of oil…you can’t recycle oil,” Musk said, adding that his original interest in electric cars went back to “almost high school.”

Having a production base in the European Union will make it easier for Musk to serve the huge EU market, and avoid any future tariff issues between the US and Europe. He acquired Grohmann, a German engineering company in Rhineland-Palatinate, in 2017., 12 November 2019

Arno's commentary

What is globalism? In plain words, a substitute for military conflict. Less than a century ago, disagreement between two nations was reason enough to indoctrinate one nation against another; the result was destruction and bloodshed. Whether it’s globalism, capitalism, socialism, communism, dictatorship, etc., they are all in the same arena. The people under these systems are subject to the god of this world, who has one specific goal: to unite the world into a peaceful, prosperous, and secure global society.

But this cannot be done overnight. The apostle John, almost 2,000 years ago, writes: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time” (1 John 2:18). Antichrist simply means instead of Christ; not the real one, but the fake one. Thus, we summarize: globalism is the recipe for success, albeit temporary.
