Seeing Opportunity in Europe’s Crisis

You really have to read it all to believe the loathsome, callous disregard for democracy and the people:

For Wolfgang Schäuble, Seeing Opportunity in Europe’s Crisis – NYTimes.com.

“What we’re now doing with the fiscal union, what I’m describing here, is a short-term step for the currency,” Mr. Schäuble said. “In a larger context, naturally we need a political union.” (…)

He sees the turmoil as not an obstacle but a necessity. “We can only achieve a political union if we have a crisis,” Mr. Schäuble said.

And that, dear reader, is how we are played by those that have set themselves above us. And they wonder why we occasionally dream of executions at dawn.

    As usual with the EU, the ruling elites are busy squandering the hard earned money of the people on their pet enterprises and prejudice. The idea that they need to get permission from the people about the money they squander, never ever enters their heads. The idea that the recipients of the money do not like the terms of the loan/assistance, is also irrelevant. Greeks have to accept the loan, and the terms, whether they like it or not. Even loan sharks or the Mafia do not force people to accept a loan from them.

    These ruling elites are beyond redemption. They have lived so long and healthy lives as parasites, they actually believe that the host is dependent on them.

    Quote: The latest debate in Europe is whether a tightening of cooperation between the euro-zone countries will divide the European Union further between those member countries that use the euro and those that do not.

    So here we go again- manufacture a crisis, then use it to achieve political outcomes, but without any public debate and most importantly, a referendum.

    Is there an opportunity?

    Yes there is. The oncoming financial train wreck will not just wreck the EU but the well being of everyone in Europe. That is when Benefits will dry up, and paying Benefit Jizya to the RoP will cease. Muslims will then start to leave of their own accord.**

    There will not just be the breakup of the EU, but a total over haul of the way of governance – It is quite likely we will adopt the one way that is suitable for advanced democracies – the Swiss way.

    Representative democracy was alright when the public was not well educated, or the means of communication were primitive. With rapid communication, and electronic voting, we can have referendums on any issue whenever we wish.

    ** To facilitate this movement, we must continue with our noble effort to take the “light of freedom and democracy” to Islamic nations. It is a noble effort.

      As you know, I am partial to the Swiss way. I would like very much to see Referism, or aspects thereof, implemented in our swampy corner of the world.

      Parliament has fully replaced the monarch as the sovereign. Hence, it is entirely natural, without checks in the system, for parliament to consolidate and expand its power. That is the lesson we apparently failed to learn: Power without checks and balances will (naturally) seek more power. And attract a none-too-wholesome type of individual to accomplish such.

        Ditto in the UK.

        There was a civil war in England to limit the power of the sovereign. Now what we have is a totally uncontrolled parliament, that has even the audacity to transfer powers that were placed in parliament to prevent abuse of the commoner from officialdom or the sovereign.

        Parliament, no matter how powerful, has the authority to transfer power to a foreign body that is resident outside of the UK or anywhere. It is illegal. Period. But they have done, and more then that, got away with it. Treason is not enough strong a word to describe what has passed.

        So far so good. But when the money runs out, the lights go out, and people start to take their own lives, as is happening in Greece and Italy, then things will move.

    Orwell 1984 : How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?’ By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation… Progress in our world will be progress towards more pain.

    But unlike 1984 fortunately, which ends in despair, the human spirit revolts and resorts to tumbrilsl.
