Richard North of EUreferendum recently described the EU ‘project’ as a ‘slow motion coup d’etat.’
It certainly is that, but it may well be much more than a simple coup d’etat. Because one of the biggest problems that the EU faces is that most Europeans think of themselves first and foremost as French or German or Italian or Spanish or whatever, and only secondly (if at all) as ‘Europeans’. This isn’t enough for the eurocrat elite, because they want to completely replace these nation states with a single European state in which everyone thinks of themselves as ‘Europeans’. The nation state must completely vanish. And the people inside the new superstate must lose their national identities, and be re-made into euro-citizens. In fact, they must be completely re-made in every respect.
To a very great extent this liquidation of national identity is already well under way, with the EU flag (on which there is no trace of any nation at all) gradually replacing national flags, and the EU anthem replacing national anthems, and – above all – the EU parliament and commission replacing sovereign national parliaments.
Another problem that the EU faces is that of its multiple languages. And in this respect, the policy seems to be to gradually replace them with one language – English -, which seems to have become the lingua franca of the world over the past century. But the choice of English also conveniently serves to marginalise all those people in Europe who can’t speak English (although not in Britain, where the chosen method has been to simply fill the country with people who can’t speak English). And in the long run, this is probably bad news for the English language, which will – like Latin – come to be seen as the elitist language of cultural imperialism.
Immigration is yet another method for undermining cultural identity. The more black, brown, foreign, Muslim (or at least non-Christian) aliens that can be imported into a country, the more its identity becomes diluted and perhaps even entirely supplanted.
Churches – and in particular national churches like the Church of England – must also be gradually marginalised. And this has been happening too. The Archbishop of Canterbury said a few years ago that Christianity was being ‘denormalised’.
The replacement of national currencies by euros also entails a loss of cultural identity. And so this is another way in which identity is erased. The euro is as much a political project as it is an economic project.
This is much, much more than a mere coup d’etat: this is the liquidation of the entirety of European culture. It’s the liquidation of nation states, national languages, national currencies, a Christian heritage, and everything else that serves to distinguish peoples from each other. It is a colossal piece of social engineering which has been under way for the past 50 years or more, and which has been gathering increasing pace in recent years.
Because only when people have become atomised, and completely stripped of their former identity, can they be re-made into homogeneous euro-citizens, and equipped with the ersatz EU flag and the EU anthem and the Euro currency to replace their potent lost symbols.
In this process, smoking bans are just one small element in the liquidation of cultural identity. Smoking bans are primarily intended to suppress the culture of common people (and not, of course, to ‘improve health’) and produce an atomised society. The growing number of restrictions on alcohol are also an assault on convivial culture. The same applies with food. Because smoking and drinking and eating are as much primary elements of cultural identity as nation or language or religion.
Cars and motorbikes are also tokens of cultural identity, and by demonising carbon dioxide or ‘carbon’, and hedging them around with innumerable regulations, they are being gradually restricted.
Science (and reason) is also being subverted. Anti-smoking ‘science’ isn’t really any sort of science at all. And global warming ‘science’ isn’t much better. The primary task of ‘science’ is now to provide support and justification for political programmes.
The people who are engaged upon this monumental piece of social engineering are the European political elite, all of whom are well-paid members of the Eurocracy. They no longer owe their allegiance to their own countries (which elected them), but instead to the EU. And it is their task in their home countries to preside over the liquidation of their native cultural identity. And in this they can rely upon the complete co-operation of the mass media and the civil services and professional classes of their home countries.
And the people upon whom this monstrous construction is being imposed are all the peoples of Europe, none of whom want to lose their national identity or their languages or any other element of their cultural identity.
And so the eurocrat elite is now coming into collision with the peoples whose culture it has set out to destroy. And this is a comprehensive collision which will grow out of multiple cultural flashpoints, where people’s identities have come under attack. It will be the clash everywhere of the people with the state.
Smoking bans are just one of these flashpoints. As the EU project proceeds on its course, there are bound to be more and more nationalist protests (because the EU is has set out to suppress nation states), and religious protests, and every manner of other protest.
Europe is set to become an arena of wall-to-wall protest and riot and revolt, as more and more ordinary people find the symbols of their identity being taken away from them. And this will give rise to nationalist guerrilla movements in every country in Europe, much like the IRA or ETA before them (both of which were primarily fighting for national identity), but on a far larger scale. It won’t be just nationalistic: it will be a comprehensive cultural revolt against all kinds of imposed new norms and values.
The best thing that could happen would be for all these various protesting peoples to unite in one single task: the overthrow of the European political class who have so comprehensively duped and misled and betrayed their own peoples.
And if this is not done, a de-cultured Europe will become a sort of grim, faceless, and poverty-stricken new Soviet Union that stretches from Lisbon to Helsinki.
And to the extent that the rest of the world adopts similar cultural measures, to that extent they face the same future too.
