Beyond a Failing European Super State

– Deciding the Future we Want –
This subject should be of interest to everyone, regardless of where you live. We are all affected by the unraveling of this behemoth called the European Union, just as we are by its continued presence. It is, after all, a work of mammon; yet masterfully disguised as a pan European socio-economic entente-cordiale.
It has its roots in the historical imperative of empire building and came into being as a direct extension of Hitler’s Nazi inspired goal of establishing a ‘Third Reich’.
The leading voice of the EU’s first version, the European Union Treaty of 1957, was a German named Walter Hallstein. He became the founder president of the Commission of the European Economic Community and one of the founding fathers of the European Union. His suitability for filling this role was based upon his earlier work as a senior attorney of the Nazi/IG Farben partnership. The line of continuity is direct.
However, the blueprint that lead to the formation of the European Union was first tabled at a meeting of the highly secretive Bilderberg group in Rome some four years earlier. The Bilderberg group, which meets annually to this day, is composed of elite bankers, industrialists, political high-flyers and royalty. It is hardly surprising that the notion of a European Super State should find favor with this assembly.
We are looking at the key individuals behind what became a self selecting, autocratic top-down hierarchy. A hierarchy whose decision making process would be entirely self contained. It was never, by any remotest stretch of the imagination, a ‘people’s movement’. Nor did it aspire to any form of ‘democracy’; but developed rapidly into a centrally based technocracy. A pyramid, whose top-end bureaucracy consists of an unelected cabal serving the interest of big business, multinational corporations and political power mongers interested in the wider control of humanity as a whole.
It is a major plank in the long desired elite vision of a ‘New World Order’.
Hallstein himself stated in his book ‘Europe in the Making’: “The Commission is entrusted with what virtually amounts to a monopoly in taking the initiative in all matters affecting the Community. There are few exceptions to this general rule, but these ought to be removed at the earliest opportunity.”
He adds “As I see it, the Commission should eventually be empowered to take all measures necessary for the implementation of the Treaty on its own authority, without having to rely on special and specific approval by the Council of Ministers.”
Thus it has been and continues to be. But due to a fundamental belief and expertise in the powers of deception, it has carried some four hundred million European citizens along with it under the aegis of uniting independent nations behind what it has claimed to be ‘an economically beneficial harmonization of rules and regulations’.
A process which has led the European Union to become the largest trading block in the world. With the Commission as leader of a ‘Supranational’ authority, overseeing the ‘acquis communautaire’ (the great acquired rule book) under which all member nation states are bound.
‘Supranational’: please remember that this means ‘above national’ the ‘highest authority’ – that which supersedes national law.
What an incredible feat! Millions and millions across the continent of Europe have come to passively accept the covert – and often overt – imposition of a dictatorship under the illusion that it is a benign force for good.
But such deception cannot prevail forever. Signs of dissent have been growing for decades. In 2001 the Irish voted ‘no’ to being party to the Nice Treaty. The news rocked Europe, causing the Commission to put the Irish government under enormous pressure to do a re-run and to embark on a massive propaganda exercise warning that the Irish economy would collapse unless it voted in favor of the Treaty. It duly conformed.
Further tremblings have grown in intensity since that time, and then, in June 2016, the infamous ‘Brexit’ was launched into reality. It shook the nation and it shook the federation – and the shock waves have not ceased to reverberate. With similar rebellions simmering on a number of fronts throughout the Union, cracks are opening up that can no longer be papered-over.
There are good reasons to be suspicious of the sincerity of the British government in genuinely freeing Britain from the chains that have bound it to the Union for the past forty four years. However that is the subject for another article.
Do We Have a Vision of the Future We Want?
Whatever the political reality actually is – one thing in particular is alarming the powers that be – people are becoming aware. Slowly at first, but week by week the process is gathering pace.
As a result, a large question now presents itself to all citizens of Europe and beyond: what shape do we want our collective futures to take?
Do we actually have a vision of the future we want? And if not, why not?
This is not a Utopian question. Those who think it is, are unwilling to recognize the power that exists among ‘we the people’ to bring about the change we want to see. Not to countenance this is to remain a slave to the same control system which is suffocating the creative power at the heart of humanity.
When I speak of change, I mean real change, the clearing away of not just the EU, but all known versions of ‘government’ and their replacement with a new model which will rise-up from the grass roots.
So to get things underway, I’m going to make my contribution by briefly outlining a vision of the general direction I believe we could and should be moving in.
Firstly, in order for EU countries and regions to (re)establish their socio-economic and cultural identity and organic sense of direction, they must actually break-free from the fascistic super state which is today’s reality. Also, as I have stated above, break-free from all recognized forms of top-down government, since virtually all of them are deeply corrupt and in the pockets of corporate interests. This ‘ditching of the dead’ is the prerogative for moving forward.
Once freed from the neoliberal/neocon military industrial project covertly imposed by an alliance of US government interests, the European Commission and the governments of most Western nation states, each country will be able to once again explore its priorities and to freely redefine its relationship with its neighbours.
Right from the start, the old ‘globalization model’ must be abandoned in favor of the reintegration of production and marketing according to an inter regional and local pattern.
