This is a remarkable essay from the Gatestone Institute’s European website. The author, Thierry Baudet, lays out the long, sordid strategy and tactics of the architects of the European Union project and how an entire continent and beyond has been fooled and conned into a massive fools’ charade of utopian cultural suicide.
Admitting hordes of anti-Western Muslim “refugees” is just the end game of a decades long plan to topple the birthplace of intellectual ideals and culture that brought forth the first creedal nation, America. The Old World of the West, in the grip of Ancien Regimes, subsequently suffered through self-induced psychoses of Napoleonic Wars, hysterical revolutions, Fascism, Socialism and Communism throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Having learned apparently nothing, now civically and morally exhausted, comprised of dozens of languages and dialects, aswirl amidst conflicting ancient cultures, the Euros resigned themselves to technocratic apathy and ennui in the post cold war era. Bankrupt of ethical and moral ground, the people of Europe surrendered their minds and souls to an elite establishment of unelected and unaccountable scam artists intent on dismantling the nation state along with its corollary concept of personal and national sovereignty.
In his dystopian classic, The Managerial Revolution (1941), the American political scientist James Burnham coined the concept of “controlled democracy“. According to Burnham, the civil democracies of the second half of the 20th century would – more or less gradually – be overgrown with backroom bureaucratic networks that make the actual decisions, all far away from the electorate and public debate.
While this would slowly but surely erode the democratic mandate of governments, Burnham explicitly didn’t expect that this would lead to the dissolution of the European nation state – in name, that is.
Elections will also remain in place; they will provide managers valuable insights into the preferences of the consumer-citizen, while at the same time functioning as an exhaust valve to possible opposition forces. Burnham predicted a form of political theatre in the guise of sham elections between candidates who happen to be like-minded on every fundamental subject, who are paid to debate in front of clueless spectators in mock parliaments, while the results were known in advance – after all, the actual decisions have already been made.
Not only did James Burnham’s work serve as the most important inspiration for George Orwell’s 1984, chances are Burnham also had a decisive influence on Jean Monnet and Robert Schumann – the founding fathers of the present day European Union. For after they tried to openly guide their “United States of Europe” through national parliaments, they chose, after the French parliament (while loudly singing the Marseillaise) voted down their plans in 1954, to use exactly the gradual and stealthy approach described by The Managerial Revolution to achieve their goals.
