There Can Be No Capitalism, No Republic – Without Independence

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 6.39.09 PMThe European Union as we know it was not established until 1993 in Maastricht. You may recall that Margaret Thatcher argued strongly against it. People who have opposed the current vote to exit the Union are not familiar with its history. Rather, they have been scared by the big government junkies and politicians who think the world would not turn without their treaties and agreements.

I lived and studied in England from 1990 to 1995. I visited England many times after that, especially when I worked for the European Community in Brussels in 1996-7. I was also employed by the government to teach the history and magnificence of the EU to the employees of the National Bank, Supreme Audit Office and other grand governmental establishments.

I also spent two years traveling and working all over England. From Newcastle to Plymouth, from Exeter to Canterbury, people were proud to be British. They absolutely hated having to abandon their currency, the Pride of their Kingdom, and submit to the government in Brussels. They were proud of their “splendid insulation,” their independence from “the Continent.” They would say: “That’s the way we do it, not like on the Continent,” placing a disparaging accent on the last word…

Subsequently, I worked in Brussels at the very core of the European Union, Directorate Generale 1. To my surprise and bewilderment, I had a very similar experience with Belgian people, who absolutely hate and detest the EU government, which, they say, sucks them dry and leaves them out – EU officials’ starting salary is 3 times that of an average Belgian citizen. They travel by cabs and shop in special stores around the EU district. Belgian people in that district are better off – from boulangeries to pharmacies to clothes and shoe stores… “They look down on us,” my Belgian friend told me. “People like you,” she continued, “they come and go, well dressed, caring nothing for what we want.” How “common Americans” feel about Washington D.C. today, it seems to me, is very similar…

From the Coal and Steel Community in 1952, EU has developed not just into a single market area with free movement of goods, but also into the Schengen passport-free area without borders. There is no doubt in my mind that this development (especially the 2009 Lisbon Treaty, which created a “legal personality” and a host of unelected, permanent officials, growing the government in Brussels ever larger) contributed significantly to the current development. Had there been no Schengen, there would have been no Muslim Invasion.

Just like Obama in 2009, European Union in 2012 received the Nobel Peace Prize for “having contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.” How absurd is this? First, they give it to a novice politician with no record of achievement but a trail of apologies which caused the rise of Terrorism and Islamic Fascism in the world; then to a body politic (for lack of a better term) for something accomplished by FDR, Truman and Reagan (end of World War II and Cold War). Will the gathering of senile professors in Stockholm be taken by surprise when Sweden referendum falls the way the British did?

There can be no capitalism without independence. There can be no republic in a borderless world of universal socialism. The Muslim Invasion of Europe was the last straw. I am only surprised that it has taken so long…
