The European Union is now so entrenched in the politics and economics of the member countries, with the European Commission (EC) being a behemoth with almost unstoppable momentum that it’s difficult to understand under what circumstances the EU could or would ever be reversed.

I’ve said it often before, but the EC (the executive body of the EU) is no less than a complex dictatorship.  Compared, say, to the organisation of a mature democracy (you decide with which one you wish to make a comparison), the EC is an unelected, unaccountable (MEPs are puppets), unchecked, unbalanced and spectacularly costly (financially and, these days, socially) expensive oligarchy.

The strange thing is that in all of the raging debate about the euro crisis, the institutional view is that the EU/EC is not of itself up for debate.  The major assumption of the member states’ politicians, the bureaucrats, the central bankers and the mainstream media is that “ever closer union” is the only game in town and that the grand project remains “irreversible”.  I find this mindset simultaneously profoundly alarming and depressing.

My own view is that the continent of Europe (including the UK for as long as our own political class goes with the flow) is inching inexorably towards becoming the 21st century version of the USSR.  The triumvirate mafia as I call them (the semi-detached politicos, the fully-detached bureaucrats and the all-powerful bankers) have no intention whatsoever of even considering the systematic unwinding of the European Union.

Consequently, Europe’s 495 million citizens are being herded like sheep on a long, descending road to serfdom. Of itself, this is testament to the EC propaganda machine.


“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
