We know it, they know it
The European Union was always meant to be a superstate; the world was always meant to be divided up along geographical lines - the men left standing would be the rulers. It's just a game of chess based on the old colonial patterns: divide and conquer, a bit of subversion here and a little more there with a few sweeties thrown in.
As predicted by many people, ever since the Lisbon Treaty was ratified by the twenty-seven member states of the EU, things have rocketed along; new competences have been claimed and sovereignties seceded.
What's happening in America isn't happening in isolation; Agenda 21 and the climate change ecomentalists don't just lobby in your country - the b@st@rds are everywhere. Our own political class in the UK is riddled with them and since they're in situ for life, our own elected MPs have very little say in policy. They can try to change things but usually meet a brick wall, head-on. It isn't beyond the wit of our Civil Service to engineer the downfall of an MP who goes against the accepted direction. I suspect it's the same for you.
The big problem is that there's a gulf between the electorate and the elected. Once they're in office (though they prefer the term 'power') most of them are absorbed by the unelected Borg, the relentless machine of global governance. If we're serious about changing what currently passes for democracy, we have a big fight on our hands. Not only do we fight between ourselves (left/right; republican/democrat) but our politicians fight against civil servants. We need to choose our ground carefully and not be rail-roaded by the msm or political rhetoric.
It goes against the grain, I know, but I believe that many of those protesters camping out around the world do speak for us: they rail against the banks, the bonuses, the taxpayer-funding, the cuts in services, the homeless, the jobless. My question is: Who do we fight first? The government, or those with a different opinion to us? Check out The Frankfurt School if you haven't already done so. As you complain about Obama appropriating Executive orders to himself so do we in England worry about our 1689 Bill of Rights and our Magna Carta being undermined and re-written surreptitiously.
In the meantime, Italy is following Greece down the pan and unelected europhile technocrats are being parachuted in by the EU to act as Prime Ministers in European countries with a view to overseeing economic competence. A silent coup is taking place but, despite the protests, the people still haven't realised what it really means.
I'm glad that the euro is under a concerted attack by the markets, and I'm not naive - I know that we will all experience a great deal of pain if economies collapse. I don't mind suffering pain for something worthwhile but global governance isn't on my list. It's about time the people saw the rabbit:
My thanks to Sig94 for letting me post this after I've been absent for so long.
