The European Union (EU) the New Soviet Union (NSU)

Politics / Euro-Zone May 25, 2012 - 03:13 AM GMT

By: Christopher_Quigley

Politics Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an essay penned in June 2011 Bernard Connolly the author of "The Rotten Heart of Europe" explained
how the European Union was actively morphing into the New Soviet Union. He outlined how democracy
was being destroyed and replaced by bureaucratic command. I have to congratulate Mr. Connolly for his
courage in expressing views which endanger his financial career but unfortunately many are coming to
comprehend that his analysis is the truth if only because it places a rational paradigm on disparate activity
that is actually happening to people in their daily lives. Below I list ten examples to support this thesis.


Socrates in his wisdom asked his Greek students to judge a tree by its fruit. If the list below induces an
epiphany and makes you realise that the "fruit" of the EU is falling from a NSU tree then I urge you to act
on that awareness and disseminate this consciousness and commence creating peaceful community
alternatives.

1. To soviets money is not a medium of exchange but an instrument of command and control.
When you comprehend this central fact you begin to understand what is currently playing out in Europe.

The Euro was introduced for political rather than economic reasons. As explained by Connolly in his
aforementioned book the elites in Brussels knew that this hastily executed plan towards monetary union
would have catastrophic effects on certain member countries i.e. Greece, Portugal and Ireland. However,
despite these reservations, the policy was actively planned and promoted. Thus the current "financial"
crisis laying waste to Greece was utterly foreseen by Connolly in 1995 and therefore very preventable.
Before our very eyes the needs of the people of Europe are being trampled upon in the lust to bring about
soviet style centralization of the European market economy.
2. Soviets do not do democracy. Ireland is one of the few countries in Europe that has a functioning
constitution. Due to its independent judiciary this constitution has been defended and upheld. According
to the constitution any changes must be put to the vote of the people through referendum. Ireland has
voted on a number of occasions to refuse closer integration into the Europe Union. However, in total
rejection of the democratic ideal and in true soviet style, the results of referenda have been rejected by
Brussels. Following the Lisbon referendum the Irish political class were privately "demanded" to
orchestrate a second referendum when the original "no result" did not suit. This policy of Brussels has
rendered national democracies and their written constitutions redundant.
3. The essence of freedom within the western tradition in Europe is the operation of free exchange
through independent markets. Sovietism rejects free exchange in favour of command economics. Over the
last 40 years markets in the European Union have been manipulated through progressive and excessive
"red tape". The result is that small and medium sized businesses have been decimated and have been
replaced by large "corporate" entities which are centrist creations operating through Fabian policy, funded
by client banks. The end result has been the increasing dominance of the same economic "players"
throughout the EU. This is Fabian centralization at work.
(Fabianism is the slow persistent application of socialist policy which achieves its objective so gradually
that most people do not realise the radical change in motion. The word is named after the Roman general
Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus Cunctator (ca. 280 BC – 203 BC) a Roman politician and general,
who wore down Hannibal by many years of attrition rather that through immediate direct open combat).
4. Sovietism destroyed the free indigenous farmer in Russia and centralized its operation. The
common agricultural policy has achieved the same objective throughout the European Union. Local
family farming has been superseded by industrial level food production, control and distribution. These
food combines are centrally owned and financed.
5. Propaganda as a technique of mental conditioning is an essential element of control under
sovietism. Through "broadcasting commissions" central control of "real" information is being achieved
throughout the European Union. Thus local and national newspapers, radio stations and television stations
all receive their "news" from central "out-sources" with very little real journalism in evidence. This model
has led to cross ownership of most European media assts by chosen corporatists. This group disseminates
a consistent liberal/socialist message. No alternative philosophy, in the main, is given relevance or
coverage. A "Pravda" type of "on message" conditioning has replaced news and information across the
EU.
6. Sovietism is international. Its goal is the central monopolistic control of all the factors of
production i.e. land, labour, entrepreneurship and capital; internationally. Sovietism has no use for nations
as such.
Thus in true soviet style "Nationalism" has become a dirty word throughout the EU. To be a "Nationalist"
has almost come to be regarded as a terrorist. The only political mantra given European credence these
days is international multi-culturalism and global corporatism as both of these mental concepts suit the
international soviet policy objective.
7. Sovietism does not countenance independent thought. Accordingly Aristotelian classical
criticism, the foundation of the western educational systems of the past, has been replaced by a blind
technical mentality. The spirit of rational speculation have been rendered irrelevant in favour of a
utilitarian dogma. The direct result has been a "dumbing down" in general academic standards and an
overall destruction of critical consciousness. This explains what is presently going on in our schools and
colleges and why increasingly these institutions "graduate" so many students who do not think for
themselves but who are generally perceived to be in a constant state of "consensus trance".
8. Soviets have no place for religion. Thus, for example, in Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain et al it
has been ordered that religious "objects" be removed from all "public" buildings. This secularization is an
ongoing policy and its objective is the total acceptance of a material Darwinian rationality to the utter
exclusion of any and every religious and spiritual creed.
9. Soviet policy fundamentally promotes the state to the detriment of the family. Throughout
Europe, particularly over the past decade, family life has been attacked.

Take the following two examples:
A. Family courts in the EU operate "in camera" through secret meeting whereby, in many
instances, children are taken into state custody and fathers refused access. There is no right of appeal.
Within these courts marriages are summarily sundered with little evidence required to substantiate a
request for dissolution. Under many of the constitutions of the European states marriage is supposed to be
THE institution the nation is pledged to protect, before all else. This is now no longer the case. In
addition, under English common law, all courts should be public except in times of war or national
emergency.

B. EU states subsidise "lone unmarried mothers" whereby it is now economically beneficial to reject
employment and commit to having children while remaining unmarried. By so doing these "unmarried
mothers" thereby obtain a regular weekly income, food allowances, fuel allowances, travel allowances,
crèche allowances, free healthcare and accommodation subsidies. All benefits are immediately lost by
mothers should they ever marry. Currently in Ireland there are over 100,000 of these "lone/unmarried
families".

These policies are leading to a future generation which will never experience "traditional" Judaeo-Christian family stability and is thereby creating a substantial underclass utterly dependent on state
subsidies with no sense of a traditional work ethic or social commitment. (May I add that what is
happening here is not the fault of these mothers; they are simply accepting a "lifestyle choice" actively
promoted by soviet style state policy).

10. Soviets quickly identified the benefit of moral degeneracy in achieving its aims of family,
community and national decline.

Throughout the EU there has been a near collapse in the promotion of basic moral consciousness. This
trend is affecting all aspects of life and is leading to depression, alcoholism, violence, isolation, family
breakup and social atomisation.

Conclusion
Thus if this indeed is the fruit emanating from Brussels then I too am slowly and reluctantly coming to the
same conclusion reached by Mr. Bernard Connolly. I too am beginning to realise that this tree in Belgium
should not bear the name: "the EU" but rather should answer to the nomenclature of "the NSU": the New
Soviet Union.

Preview of US decline

Our country is rapidly becoming dumbed down. I can see all 10 points being implemented like a frog put on the stove in a pan of cold water with the heat gradually being applied until

a slow death is achieved. Unfortunately we are watching this happen in Europe without realizing that we are dying a similar death. Fortunately I think many of us through social media can prevail. "trust is the currency of the future". trust of knowledgeable people rather than Governments. Keep communicating.

Writers lamenting loss of "judeochristian stability" are just as guilty of religious conquest as the soviets, many of whom were jewish subversives. (Q: who did marx worship?)

History shows that religion has been more destructive than beneficial, that enlightenment and progress has been possible only by secular education and overcoming superstitions. Witness the damage done in religious "schools" by physical, mental and spiritual abuse, from which recovery takes a lifetime if at all!

Moreover, a careful observer will note that there are many cultures in the world where the institution of family is not tied to religion (especially a foreign one) and thus are stable societies.
