Among these people were, for example, the then Federal President Horst Köhler and other members of the government – but his endeavor was unsuccessful. He often said in public that the German people were not free because the two-plus-four treaty was not a valid peace treaty and made Germany an occupied country. As a consequence, in the past he has repeatedly been accused of stirring up conspiracy theories, a certain hostility to democracy, anti-capitalism and all sorts of similar anti-capitalist thoughts.
