(Natural News) To keep the lights and heat on for as long as possible this dark winter, WDR and ARD public broadcasting in Germany are urging citizens to bathe only once a week at most.
Staying dirty and using minimal water will help to offset German politicians’ failed “green” initiatives, which resulted in a shutdown of the country’s domestic energy production.
Coupled with Western sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, which led to gas supplies being cut off from Europe, Germany is in serious trouble unless citizens agree to revert back to the Stone Ages.
“Around 100 years ago, it was still customary to bathe only once a week,” one public television network in Germany advised. “Today, people almost look at you strangely if you tell them you don’t shower several times a week.”
According to these same public broadcasters, it is somehow beneficial to only shower once a week as opposed to every day or every other day. One benefit is that Germans can become “a little more tolerant to body odor.” (Related: As a very dark winter approaches, France has shut down half of its nuclear power plants.)
“Maybe showering or bathing could become a weekly highlight,” these broadcasters added. “We would celebrate this in public bathhouses – perhaps also in the company of others.”
If you have to bathe, do it in a sink instead of a shower
In other words, Germany is once again telling people to agree to be hauled off to group “showers,” just like the country did prior to World War II. History really does repeat itself.
If Germans have to bathe, then they should try to do so in sinks rather than in showers. Public broadcasters say that after a sweaty workout, for instance, a German can enter a cubicle equipped with a simple sink and use a washcloth to wipe off the grime.
Similar advice is being dispensed throughout the United Kingdom, which like Germany is succumbing to energy shortages, inflation, and eventual collapse.
There, a recent YouGov poll found, 17 percent of Britons are already voluntarily showering less as a result of the terror of covid lockdowns. Among the 18-24 age demographic, as many as 27 percent “skip showering sometimes” for the same reason.
“So now the shortage of energy is the public’s fault because we wash too much?” asked one commenter, blasting the suggestion by German public television that this is anyone’s fault other than the globalists in charge. “Back to the Stone Age, here we come!”
“And here I was thinking that the ability to have hot showers, as little or much as you like, without much cost or effort, was the pinnacle of our civilization, so far!” wrote another.
“Maybe it’s not but tell me then what is! Anything that it’s equally engulfing, individual, total, available, hard to fake and infrastructural like that. Maybe driving around in your car without having to explain?”
Someone who lives in Australia wrote that prior to the 1960s and 1970s, it was abnormal to shower once a day there.
“Dry continent and bore water or tanks made us appreciate the value of water,” this person wrote. “And our piped waters have always been expensive compared to other places.”
“These people are on a mission to make our lives miserable – our lives, not theirs,” said another.
“One of my biggest joys in life is the daily hot shower. There is something about hot, running water that makes you feel good. I don’t care how hot it is, a hot shower makes me feel better. The colder it is, the hotter the shower.”
