you can thank the swiss for this serafe mafia
Another insightful, thoughtful post from you, omtatsat.

Yes, obviously you can thank the Swiss for Serafe, the Swiss company charged with collecting from the Swiss the Swiss fee that the Swiss electorate voted for to pay for Swiss infrastructure and Swiss entertainment broadcasts for Swiss residents. I don't see the Germans being responsible, or the Russians, or the Chinese.

Serafe is the company appointed to collect the fee. That's it. They're not responsible for the fee being implemented. You may have noticed that the new fee is considerably lower than the old one that was collected by Billag. Unless you avoided your legal responsibility to pay the Billag fee in the past, one would have thought you'd be delighted to welcome the new, lower fee and would pay Serafe without hesitation.

If you want an example of mafia tactics, look no further than the doorstep bullying practised by Billag. With Serafe, those days are gone.
