… asked one of my favourite journalists (Jeremy Warner) in the Daily Telegraph today (link below). Whether he realised it, or not, he was referring to the steady, predictable and inevitable collapse of the European Union economy and, therefore with it, the collapse of the faux-society that is the European Union itself. You and I can rejoice at that, by the way. The European Union is on the road to serfdom (see Hayek’s eponymous treatise).
It’s not terribly difficult to predict what’s going to happen to the European Union; however, it’s awfully difficult to accept it (particularly if you’re a member of the Europhile elite and its acolytes).
Much as I admire Mr Warner as a journalist, he has yet to grasp what is really going on here (or it seems that way to me anyway). What is really going on is the unfolding of a new economic reality in Europe (and elsewhere in the developed world). From that will flow massive and unstoppable changes to European (and other developed world) societies. There is no such thing as “Europe”, of course, in the sense that it might be one society. “Europe” exists as a single, homogenous society only in the eyes of the nutjobs that inhabit the alter-universe that is Brussels and the European Commission (oh, and the mainstream British political class, of course).
To answer Mr Warner’s question: the electorates of the nation states that are the European Union will not tolerate “this” (ie European Union tyranny) for much longer, believe me.
‘For how much longer will Europeans put up with this nonsense, with unemployment set to climb even further?’
PS In my next post I’ll endeavour to answer the question, “What is really going on?”
