Describe the EU, describe the politics

[Reposted from PJC Journal, June 08, with a couple of small edits]

I know that so many have been at a loss to describe exactly what it is that the EU is building for itself and it has been the subject of so many articles, comments, journals and investigations.

We look at the way the EU has grown up — the history is readily available from the first mooting of the EEC, the EC to the present day EU. The trouble is that so many have found it difficult to label, and because of that it has been almost impossible to counter.

As a super state entity (post Lisbon EU), it has variously been called Communist, Nazi, Fascist or Corporatist. It is none of these things in their true sense. It is not Communist (although very heavily influenced, especially in the institutions), it is not Nazi or Fascist (although many of the methods employed by the Nazis to gain power — especially the politics of fear — have been used by national governments), nor is it truly corporatist in nature, although big business is a major political driver. It appears to be a rag bag of them all, mixed up and very difficult to counter because it has no name, no form.

The fact that similar or identical legislation, rules and bans were being enacted by both left and right parties around the globe raised suspicions. This should not be so, one thinks.

This article puts all the above into perspective, gives it a name, creates the form that we are looking for, and comes with warnings, for there is danger on the political road ahead, for everyone.

Known to political insiders as communitarianism; in public they mostly call it bipartisan support, or the Third Way:

The Evolutionary Third Way: A U.S. Mandate for Change

The article is long, but it is one of the most enlightening and informative articles I have read for many a day. I’ll highlight a few of the salient points about this article, because it does indicate where we are going, not just in the UK, but across Europe, North America, Israel, Australasia, Southern Africa and Japan.

“It requires formerly free, state citizens to volunteer to become bonded workers for the community.”

“requires” + “volunteer” = non-sequitur newspeak.

“And, as Hegel said, only enlightened, fully evolved humans are capable of understanding how all men will attain freedom after everyone becomes a slave to the central, all-powerful state.”

Then we have this:

“The world is adapting to the challenges of the information age by reinstating an ancient form of community slavery. Once it’s fully implemented, the world will be a safer, healthier place for all living creatures.”

Well the ones who are left perhaps. This is the slave based democracy they are preparing for you, this is the EU that they are building, this is the EU that the people of Europe will never be able to vote on.

The rise of Authoritarian Government goes on apace. Anyone who believes that the EU is likely to be a benevolent entity, only existing for the well-being of its citizens, is deluding themselves; and, as with any revolution, those who enable the revolution will be the first to suffer once their usefulness is spent.

In retrospect, the recent by-election in Haltemprice and Howden was nothing more than testing the water. How much are people concerned and bothered by the way things are going? Are they ready to speak up for the rights that they are losing on a near-daily basis?

Although Libertarians leapt to proffer their support for what seemed a principled stand on the part of David Davis, as time went by many came to see that by-election as a sham; and, when it comes down to the wire, it is not what a politician says that they will be judged upon, it is by what they do.

Looking at some of the associations and memberships that Davis has had over the years, and continues to maintain, many Libertarians now feel that his performance was merely smoke and mirrors, for public consumption, but with little real substance.

There will undoubtedly be more of the same to come, as our political masters continue to corral us towards the nightmare communitarian future which they have planned for us.

As we have stated on this blog many times before:

There is no left or right in UK politics any more.
This battle is about one thing, Authority versus Liberty.
