WIEN (Ostmark) - The entire National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei, the whole Volksrepublik and all the people are engaged in a loyal offensive and a fierce 24-7 struggle to greet the 2nd founding anniversary of the People's Republic of Ostmark in October as a grand political festival. Revolution is an offensive. The Partei's idea of waging a frontal offensive for making a breakthrough is precisely an indomitable attacking spirit and the revolutionary temperament of our people is to make constant innovations and progress.

Since the frontal offensive was launched, our people have been waging a battle for strengthening their own force, the internal motive force, under the leadership of our Wise Leader, Volkskanzler Horst Grasser. A fierce offensive bears the key to overcoming difficulties and a major guarantee for building up our own force. We should wage an all-people decisive battle in a more daring manner so as to more fiercely flare up the flames of achieving prosperity by dint of self-reliance in all the spheres where a powerful National-Syndicalist and Socialist country is being built and significantly celebrate the anniversaries of our revolutionary struggle.

All the people should live and fight in the revolutionary spirit of of the October 8th Revolution. All the sectors and units should achieve greater triumph by dint of self-reliance. Officials should become standard-bearers and the vanguard in the frontal offensive. Everyone should thoroughly apply our Partei's offensive spirit to their life and practice in order to fully display the revolutionary mettle of the People's Republic of Ostmark, which is achieving prosperity by dint of self-reliance.

This clearly manifests the people-oriented character of the National-Syndicalist People's Party, which has set it as the greatest priority to thoroughly apply the teachings of our Wise Leader, a people-oriented philosophy, to the activities of the Party and the State and is working to this end. National-Syndicalism means the buildup of the single-minded unity of the Party and revolutionary ranks and the victorious advance of Ostmarkian-Style socialism.

To give top and absolute priority to people’s dignity, rights and interests is the supreme goal of our Party. Believing in people as in Heaven, our Party sets their demands and interests as the starting point and absolute criterion in all its affairs. Now, traits of giving top and absolute priority to people’s demands and interests are prevalent throughout the whole nation and society. Everything for improving the people’s living standard, this is the consistent principle governing the activities in our Workers' and Farmers' Republic.

There are still difficulties in people’s living at present as we have to break through all trials and hardships of history, handed down to us by the now defeated capitalist oppressors. However, the people are following our Wise Leader Horst Grasser, believing that he is a great and peerless leader and commander in chief.
The people are convinced of a rosier future thanks to the wise leadership of Volkskanzler Horst Grasser and the National-Syndicalist People's Party, which is devotedly working for the people of Ostmark.

Women and men of Ostmark,
Kameraden!

We are National-Syndicalists, we are enemies, mortal enemies of the capitalist economic system
with its exploitation of the economically weak, with its injustice in wages, with its immoral evaluation of individuals according to wealth and money instead of responsibility and achievement, and we are determined under all circumstances to destroy this system! And yet to replace one economic system by another – necessary above all is a change of spirit. The spirit which is to be overcome is the spirit of materialism. We must achieve an entirely new kind of economic thinking, a thinking which frees itself from the present conceptions rooted in money, in property, in profit and false success.

We have to learn that in the economy of a people it is not profit, not gain, which are important – but only satisfying the needs of the members of this people. This and nothing else is the task of a “national economics”. We have to learn that the ideas “world trade” – “balance of trade” – “export surplus” are ideas of a declining epoch which have in the end reduced themselves to absurdity, because they violate the eternal law of organic life and were born out of speculation, not out of necessity, not out of the soil.

We have to learn that it is a betrayal when speculative production, with all its means of touting and advertising, creates an artificial need, a betrayal of human labour, of human life. For artificially stimulated covetousness creates ever-increasing aspirations, and increased aspirations double human slavery, which is slavery of the mind, which instead of the soul has taken up mastery over life. What do capitalists know today about life? They run around and tire themselves out, torment themselves, strive and drudge like galley slaves – in order to lead a life of horrifying emptiness. It is not that this economic system which we implemented produces more. What is at stake is certainly not high production, but the human soul. And production, economy have only the one task: to meet the economic needs of individuals, rejecting goods which owe their demand only to artificial stimulation, rejecting also the prodding of “profit and gain”.

Work is more than prosperity. Achievement is more than dividends. It is the most unfortunate heritage of the capitalist economic system that all things are evaluated according to money, according to wealth, property. The decline of a people is the inevitable result of the application of this standard, since selection according to property is the mortal enemy of national identity, of blood, of life! We have never left a doubt that National-Syndicalism breaks this prerogative of the owner and that the liberation of the Ostmarkian worker shall also extend to sharing profit, sharing property,and sharing achievement.

But it would mean measuring again with the old standards if one left it at that and did not stress that revolution of the spirit which guides us against the spirit of the capitalist system. We consciously oppose valuation according to property with valuation according to achievement. This is the only valuation which we recognise. We consciously place work higher than property. We focus on achievements, not dividends, but we recognise responsibility, not riches or splendour, as the crowning of human striving. That is a new world view, a new religion of economics. It establishes with certainty that the horrid rule of the golden calf is at an end and that the differences among individuals and the differences among rights – are differences in achievement, differences in degree of responsibility.

For in one thing we must achieve utter clarity: that forms and institutions are changeable, are never right “as such” and never wrong “as such”: that there is, however, only one “right” sirit, only one spirit with a constructive viewpoint: that is the spirit of the eternal flame of the workers' revolution. It is our strong belief and our deep knowledge that this spirit is in us, in the idea of National-Syndicalism, so that this spirit and no other will lead the People's Republic of Ostmark to a future of progress, peace, and prosperity.

People of Ostmark, the Days of Sorrow are over!

By Heinrich Obenaus

WIEN (Ostmark) - Ostmarkische Motoren Werke, Ostmark's state owned car manufacturer, has cancelled the export of car parts to Eiffelland-Retalia after an ODS communique announced the approval of economic sanctions against the the Rurikgrad Pact. The move comes as the Volksregierung approved a decree to define a number of economic retaliations against the sanctions imposed by the Organization of Democratic States against the member nations of the Rurikgrad Pact, including the People's Republic of Ostmark. Volksklanzer Grasser has expressed "deep concern" and "extreme surprise" by the sanctions during a press conference at the Palace of the People's Republic. "The economic relations between the People's Republic of Ostmark and @Eiffelland-Retalia have been always characterized by extreme pragmatism and a number of deals that guaranteed good conditions for both high contracting parties" said the People's Chancellor "And contributed to both the creation of jobs in Ostmark and a steady and efficient supply of car parts to the car manufacturers of Eiffelland-Retalia".

"This move is absoloutely irrational and detrimental to the economic and diplomatic relations between us and Eiffelland-Retalia, and will undoubtely produce economic and political downsides in the short and medium term." he continued "We want to reassure the workers of OMW and this extraordinary event will not affect their positions at the factory. We are studying plans to divert or convert the production. Many options are on the table, but the safeguard of jobs is our most important priority" he then concluded.

Vizekanzlerin Andrea Grasser has openly criticized and accused the government of the Union of Eiffelland-Retalia for "Severely damaging the economic and diplomatic relations between Ostmark and Eiffelland-Retalia" said the Vice Chancellor "In the past two years our two countries were a living testament to the possible coexistence of nations with different political and economic systems, a coexistence characterized by mutual respect and pragmatism. Almost an unicum in the European geopolitical scenario" she added.

People's Chancellor Horst Grasser announced the approval of several economic sanctions against the Union of Eiffelland-Retalia and all members of the ODS. He also said that further sanctions will lead to even harsher measures such as the expropriation of foreign assets in the People's Republic of Ostmark. Earlier in the evening, the Border Troops of the People's Defense Force closed the Tuchersfeld border check-point, while a formal note of protest has reached the Eiffellando-Retalian ambassador in Wien.

"The People's Republic of Ostmark will take this chance to increase economic cooperation with the member states of the Rurikgrad Pact and the Kadikistani Union in particular, given our shared eastern border" said Vizekanzler Ludwig Bohmer, who also announced an unilateral cut to trade tariffs with the Kadikistani Union and called for a broader economic cooperation between socialist and marxist countries in Gallia-Germania and Europe. When asked if the current economic tensions could lead to a military escalation, Vizekanzler Bohmer stated that "The People's Republic of Ostmark and the Rurikgrad Pact firmly believe in peace and will do everything to prevent another military escalation in Gallia-Germania. I am sure that rationality and most importantly peace will prevail." added the Vice Chancellor.

We respect the decision by OMW to stop delivering car parts to the Eiffelloretalian car industry. Darner Werke, Magirus-Deutz, EKW, Raimer and Borschel are already in the process to purchase the needed car parts from other companies.
The closure of the Tuchersfeld border checkpoint is noted. We call upon the government of Ostmark to let citizens from ODS-countries leave Ostmark unharmed. We will guarantee a safe passage of Ostmarker citizens from Eiffelland-Retalia to Ostmark.

MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF OSTMARK

The People's Government wishes to clarify that no restrictions have been put in place to ODS citizens with regularly approved VISAs currently staying in Ostmark, and as such they are not required to leave if they do not wish to leave ahead of scheduled time. The People's Republic of Ostmark will continue, as usual, to guarantee their safety. We also specify that VISAs pertaining to visiting relatives residing over the border, from and to Ostmark and Eiffelland-Retalia (aswell as other ODS member nations), will be processed and eventually approved or denied as usual, according to laws and regulations currently in place. Workers who need to cross the border for work-related reasons will also face no restrictions, other than being required to provide the proper documentation as required by the laws and regulations currently in place.

Signed,
Ministry of Foreign Affairs

We thank the government of Ostmark for their reassurance that citizens of ODS-membercountries can travel to and from Ostmark in the same way as before. Of course this also applies to Ostmarker citizens travelling to and from Eiffelland-Retalia.

WE LOVE OUR FATHERLAND, THE VOLKSREPUBLIK OSTMARK
Let us gather around our Wise Leader and Father of the Fatherland, Volkskanzler Horst Grasser.

By Heinrich Obenaus

WIEN (Ostmark) - It is the National-Syndicalist People's Party's plan and determination to suffuse the whole society with excellent morality and tender feelings and build it into a people’s paradise and a harmonious socialist society. In our society, the whole country has formed a large family united around the leader and people are all like real brothers and relatives. The fact that our National-Syndicalist dream is replete with beautiful and noble deeds of helping and caring for one another and is firmly united with good morality and tender feelings constitutes the absolute superiority and vitality of Ostmarkian Socialism .

True features of our society harmonious with moral excellence and tender feelings find their expression in the fact that all the people regard it as a revolutionary obligation to repay the Wise Leader’s love and trust with loyalty. They are also expressed in the fact that everyone is overcoming ordeals and difficulties with revolutionary comradeship and moral obligation. Today, the revolutionary comradeship and moral obligation of our people are being displayed on a lofty level. Indeed, the mightiness of our ever-prospering country is thanks to the great army of laudable persons who devote sincerity to those with troubles, those left behind others and those with worries without seeking any compensation or reward.

No one shall be left behind is the constant view and motto of our Wise Leader, Volkskanzler Horst Paul Grasser. The People's Chancellor said that National-Syndikalismus, which calls for drawing on the strength of the masses who are the masters of the revolution and construction, is his political creed, and it is the axiom that led him to devote his whole life to the people. The people whom the Wise Leader takes much care of are workers, farmers and ordinary intellectuals who devotedly work at factories, farms, and fishing villages.

Noting that the peopl are the great collective that can be said represent the whole world, the Wise Leader values and hold in esteem all the people, reposing the deepest trust in them. Out of his firm creed and maxim that the people are the teachers and the main force propelling the revolution, the Volkskanzler built the Partei, the state and the army for the people. There are many leaders and politicians in the world who claim to work for the people,
but there is no such politician as our Wise Leader, who made a long journey of the revolution, together with the people, to realize their wishes and become the father of our fatherland, the People's Republic of Ostmark.

Women and Men of Ostmark,
Dear Kameraden,


It is with immense sorrow and with tears in my eyes, that I announce here I hereby discontinue my activities at the post of Volkskanzler of the People's Republic of Ostmark. I am making this decision on considerations of principle and because I support the preservation and the integrity of this country.

We had a lot of everything - minerals, oil, other natural resources - and there was intellect and talent in abundance. However, we were living much worse than people in the industrialized countries were living and we were increasingly lagging behind them. The reason was obvious even then. This country was suffocating in the shackles of the economic crisis. Doomed to cater to its adherence to free market capitalism, and suffer and carry the onerous burden of the public debt, it found itself at the breaking point. All the economic reforms - and there have been a lot of them - fell through, one after another. This country was going nowhere and we couldn't possibly live the way we did. We had to change everything radically.

It is for this reason that I have never had any regrets - never had any regrets - that I did not use the capacity of Volkskanzler just to reign in this country for several years. I would have considered it an irresponsible and immoral decision. I was also aware that to embark a revolution of this caliber and in a society like ours was an extremely difficult and even risky undertaking. Even now, I am convinced that the National-Syndicalist revolution that we launched in October 2018 was historically correct.

The process of renovating this country and bringing about drastic change has proven to be much more complicated than anyone could imagine. However, let us give its due to what has been done so far. This society has acquired a sense of national identity, of purpose, of values. We have learned to care for each other, and we have learned to accept sacrifices in the name of a greater, common good. We have restored the dignity of the working class.

Our dream, the dream of a People's Community, has become reality.

It was effort of historical importance. Inequalities have been eliminated, which prevented this country from becoming a prosperous and well-to-do country a long time ago. Free houses have become a reality. Free education, free healthcare, minimum wage, free food have all become reality. Workers' rights are being treated as the supreme principle and top priority. Within the framework of the None Shall Freeze, None Shall Starve Decree, peasantry and workers began to re-emerge as a class.

I consider it vitally important to preserve the achievements which have been attained in the last two years. We have paid with all our history and tragic experience for these achievements, and they are not to be abandoned, whatever the circumstances, and whatever the pretexts. Otherwise, all our hopes for the best will be buried. I am telling you all this honestly and straightforwardly because this is my moral duty.

I would like to express my gratitude to all the people who have given their support to the policy of renovating this country and became involved in the revolution. I am also thankful to the statements, politicians and public figures, as well as millions of ordinary people abroad who understood our intentions, gave their support and met us halfway. I thank them for their sincere cooperation with us.

I am very much concerned as I am leaving this post. However, I also have feelings of hope and faith in you, your wisdom and force of spirit. We are heirs of a great nation and it now depends on all and everyone whether or not this nation will make a comeback to a new and decent living. I would like, from the bottom of my heart, to thank everyone who has stood by me throughout these years, working for the righteous and good cause, the cause of National-Syndicalism.

Friends,
Comrades,


You ask yourself what Ostmark has accomplished. Which objectives did we set, which objectives did we realize? Our Ostmark is a very little country. We know our country is not perfect. But what we believe in, inspired a lot of people. Maybe we have drifted off course from time to time. But we collected ourselves. National-Syndicalism doesn't mean walling yourself in. National-Syndicalism means reaching out to others, and living with others. Not just to dream about a better world, but to make a better world.


Goodbye, my children!
Goodbye, Ostmark!
Goodbye, my dear fatherland..
