Briars 3 - Biedermann und Die Brandstifter by Max Frisch (in English)

The Fire Raisers (German: Biedermann und die Brandstifter), also known in English as The Firebugs, Firebugs, or The Arsonists, was written by Max Frisch in 1953, first as a radio play, then adapted for television and the stage (1958) as a play in six scenes.[1] It was revised in 1960 to include an epilogue, or afterpiece.[2]

This dark comedy is set in a town that is being regularly attacked by arsonists. Disguised as door-to-door salesmen (hawkers), they talk their way into people's homes and settle down in the attic, where they set about the destruction of the house. Written in the years following World War II, as a metaphor for Nazism and fascism, the play shows how "normal" citizens can be taken in by evil.[3]

The central character, a businessman called Biedermann, is seen at the outset reading newspaper reports of arson, convinced that he could never be taken in.   Within minutes, the first "hawker" has appeared (Schmitz), and through a combination of intimidation and persuasion

he talks his way into spending the night in the attic.

As the play unfolds, a second arsonist appears (Eisenring), and before Biedermann can do anything to stop it, his attic is piled high with oil drums full of petrol. He even helps them to measure the detonating fuse and gives them matches, refusing to believe the full horror of what is happening. He soon becomes an accomplice in his own downfall.

The action is observed by a Greek-style chorus of "firemen", and the increasingly surreal flavour culminates in a final scene, the afterpiece, where Biedermann and his wife Babette find themselves at the gates of Hell. Here they once again meet Schmitz and Eisenring who turn out to be Beelzebub and the Devil respectively, who, after becoming angered at the number of mass murderers being allowed to go to Heaven, refuses to conduct a Hell for a "small fry" like Biedermann.[4]

The name Biedermann is itself a play on the German word "bieder" meaning conventional, conservative, worthy, honest, upright and is frequently used in a pejorative or ironic context. Thus the name equates to der biedere Mann or the worthy man.

  I call it the BBC Voice. The confident assurance that somebody somewhere knows what they are doing and has looked into it all for us. That's what we have government and universities for. So as I keep fully up to date by regularly keeping myself informed from trustworthy sources, how could I....ME....ever be taken in?

 intimidation and persuasion.
A hegelian system is used.  You have where you are now, where you want to get to and a thid set of scare tactics with which to retreat back down to where you originally wanted to get to.
The False Flag is a manipulated crisis or event to frighten people into doing what you persuade them to do,
The Oklahoma Bombing, 9/11, 7/7, ISIS and  most of the school atrocites in the USA, UK Nigeria and  Russia are all such events, and time will prove this more and more.

  All our taxes fund the Black Ops, they fund the weaponry, much of which is completely out in the atomic bombs which were used to detonate the Twin Towers. The readout from the rubble gives a precise DNA of the bombs that were used and where they came from. Planes crashing don't have radioactive read out.

  Like somebody being groomed, we cannot compute that somebody who behaves in a friendly manner towards us could ever have premeditated our harm. The aftershocks of this kind of psychic abuse are so immense that some nations never get over it, certainly for decades and decades.
Russia's men....interestingly enough still reel after nearly a hundred years of communist socialism. There are huge addictive problems in Russia.  Germany outwardly acknowledges the second world war, but only now are people really able to seriously examine how a clever intellectual nation like theirs was such easy prey.

The Elite, it seems are planning that as more and more Americans and English people discover on the internet the rape of their countries , that such upheaval and revulsion will be stirred that an almighty outbreak of thuggery will mean that governments can use all the new Executive orders, and extreme measures of security forces. ALWAYS the plan is the extermination in particular of the weak and vulnerable....the "useless eaters" as they call them, also the people of faith, particularly the Abrahamic religions, and if Auschwitz is anything to go by, homosexuals and the "uncontrollable groups like gypsies". Certainly a complete reversal of mood is indicated "once we take over" it says in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
