We feature the following MSM article because it suggests – as much as one can trust anything we are told by the MSM – that the strong Brexit movement in the UK may well have lit a fire under the whole European Union experiment and other countries may start clamouring to leave.
This will be good or bad for Europe depending on what we replace it with.
The desire among the people of Europe for unity and brotherhood, friendship and cooperation remains both strong and valid, amongst the Leavers as well as the Remainers. It just depends how you go about it.
Why anyone thought that hijacking such a worthy goal and supplanting it with a slyly enforced corporate and banking gravy train in which control flows by increments into the hands of remote and unresponsive powers behind the translucent veil of a “democracy” beset by economic ineptitude and corruption would be warmly accepted by the people is beyond me.
The goal, the dream, is a good one and we could do a lot better with it than we did by entrusting it to dishonest men and self-serving vested interests.
We need to revitalise and pour coals on the dream and come up with a plan of how we are going to achieve it without us all waking up one day to find ourselves vassals in yet another re-branded, whopping great, centralised, mismanaged superstate that is some sort of corporate empire run by an invisible emperor.
It can be done and the way things are shaping up we may soon have the opportunity to have another crack at it. We really can do much better than the debacle that was foisted upon us, but we really have to stop letting con men and manipulative propagandists sell us a pig in a poke.
Put it another way: when the limo you were sold turns out to be a gas-guzzling heap chauffeured by a maniac, get out of the car, find a better one – and learn to drive it yourself.
Having said all that, one thing that makes me uneasy is how much the British MSM seems to be in favour of us leaving the EU, with its attendant possibility that the EU may continue to fracture and fall apart. It is unlike the MSM to favour something that does not have a trap in it or forward some globalist or corporate agendum.
Whilst I personally favour leaving the EU as a step in the right direction – towards freedom – I still have this feeling we are being played but I admit I have not quite figured out how. If you have some better insight on this in the form of an article you have written or someone else’s you recommend, then please contact me at steve[email protected]. I will probably be relieved to hear from you.
END OF THE EU?

Details of Berlin’s concerns were outlined in a finance ministry strategy document.
Angela Merkel’s country faces having to pay an extra £2.44billion a year to the annual EU budget once Britain has left.
Fears for the future of the EU have prompted German government officials to propose that Britain is offered “constructive exit negotiations”.
The aim is of making the UK an “associated partner country” of the EU, according to German newspaper Die Welt.
Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, warned that Europe needs to change its ways.
“Brussels must hear the voice of the people, this is the biggest lesson from this decision,” he told public radio.
“But Europe is strong only if it can give answers to major issues such as immigration that would strengthen Europe itself and not weaken it. The EU failed to give these answers.”
Another critic of the EU, the leader of Poland’s ruling party, said that the UK referendum result shows the need for reform of the EU.
“The conclusion is obvious. We need a new European treaty,” said Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who heads the Law and Justice party.

There is no point beating about the bush: today is a watershed for Europe
Tensions are rising across the EU, with Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Sweden all facing demands for referendums over Europe.
In a statement, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: “There is no point beating about the bush: today is a watershed for Europe, it is a watershed for the European unification process.”
The European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, has said this does not spell the end of the European Union and the bloc has “decades of experience in overcoming crises”.
The Brexit vote is expected to encourage populist parties in Europe to seek similar referendums for their nations.
Foreign ministers of the founding EU states met in Berlin yesterday to try to revive the shattered confidence in the European Union.
The German Foreign Minister Frank Walter Steinmeier, said: “We cannot rush into hectic activity, pretending we have all the answers, but after the British decision we also cannot fall into depression and inactivity.”
