The Rise and Demise of the EU: A Short History of A Big Failure

Otto Dix, “Prague Street,” (oil) 1920

 

Several costly mistakes were made by the founding fathers of the European Union:

  • economics, and not politics, was thought to be the best tool to bring about the unification of Europe;
  • unclear plans about the limits of the enlargement of the European Union;
  • the unexpected and ongoing floods of non-European immigration as a result of the iron law of capitalism, combined with starry-eyed, guilt-feeling Christian inspired “love thy colored neighbor” ecumenism.

The first signs of the decline did not wait to occur.  The Amsterdam Treaty of 1997, the Nice Treaty of 2001, and the Lisbon Treaty of 2007 became face-saving attempts at rectifying the failures already embedded in the founding myth of the Maastricht Treaty of 1992.

Quite revealing is the fact that the predecessor of the European Union, the European Economic Community (EEC), following the Treaty of Rome in 1957, had adopted the “economic” name and not the name of “political community.” The underlying belief, inherent to liberalism, was that only thorough economic benefits — only through the removal of trade barriers and state borders, and with the free flux of people, goods and capital — would age-old interethnic hatreds among Europeans disappear. The results of such delusions are becoming visible every day.

Nor has the EU been very democratically minded toward its member states.  In 1992 Denmark voted in a referendum against the Maastricht Treaty; in 2001 Ireland voted against the Nice Treat, and then Ireland again voted in 2008 against the Lisbon Treaty. The popular outcome of those national referendums was each time shrugged off by the EU leaders with the words: “try again next time.” Concerning the main EU mover and shaker, Germany, all referenda on any subject are forbidden by law, due to Germany’s post-WWII legal status. To put it in a less politically correct language and in plain English, Germany is an occupied country with 50.000 US troops still stationed on its soil.

 

Transfer Union: Austerity Union

The centralized bureaucracy in Brussels regulates every aspect of life among European member states. When a country faces default, the EU is slated to become a “transfer union,” with rich countries, like Germany, setting the rules for defaulting countries. Subsequently, based on the latter’s financial (in)discipline, hand- out money is to be delivered to insolvent banks of a state facing default. This practice is in contradiction with Article 125 of the Maastricht Treaty forbidding any EU member state to bail out another member state. But who cares. The mystique of the market needs to prevail in the EU — in this regard, it is quite similar to the enforcement of the former Marxist mystique in the former Soviet Union. For instance, given the disparity in economic performance between Romania and Germany and their divergent taxation systems, blind faith that the market can smooth out all difficulties appears to be another illusion.

The Euro, introduced as the single currency in the economies of the 17 member states in the early 2000’s with the hope of accelerating the convergence of national economies, has instead worsened the living standards of EU citizens. The EU removal of all obstacles to free trade has resulted in the influx of cheap non-European goods produced in emerging economies of the Far East, engaged in dumping in all forms (social, fiscal, environmental, etc.). The labor market in Pacific Rim countries, including India and China, with the population of well over 3.5 billion people, has a huge comparative advantage in supplying cheap labor and inexpensive goods to Europe. This inevitably results in the sharp decline of wages of Europeans, followed by incessant outsourcing of local labor-intensive manufacturing industry.

The Euro could make sense if two conditions had been met: the existence of the strong custom union with protective tariffs and the awareness that economic disparities between the rich and the poor member European states would not go away with a stroke of a pen. This, however, was not the case. The single European currency imposed a single interest rate on the 17 member states and the remaining 11 states which do not use the Euro, but whose own local currency is pegged to the Euro. The European Central Bank in Frankfurt, similar to the Federal Reserve in the U.S., is a true political sovereign in Europe; it has more clout in foreign and domestic policy than any member state or any local government in the EU.

Another worrisome project is the soon-to-be launched Euro-American “New Transatlantic Economic Partnership” (TTIP), created in 1998. This joint body, consisting of the European Commission and US government officials, is scheduled to create a transatlantic market in all aspects of trade and investment. In June 2013, the European Commission negotiated with the U.S. government a large transatlantic common market designated to eliminate trade barriers between the EU and USA and allegedly bring more prosperity to the citizens of the EU and the U.S. Similar rhetoric about “prosperity for all European citizens” could be heard in Europe on the eve of the Maastricht Treaty when the European Commission pontificated about the implementation of the single European market, scheduled for 1992 and thought to be able to generate between 2 and 5 million new jobs. Where are those jobs? Instead, as of June 2014, there were well over 25 million unemployed in the EU, part-timers not included.

The Wall Street Journal of February 2, 2014 quotes the European Commission saying that the “TTIP is the cheapest stimulus package imaginable.” The WSJ author of the article continues in an upbeat vein, adding that “the EU and the U.S. can expect more than $250 billion in additional GDP and hundreds of thousands of jobs from a successful partnership, according to the Center for European Policy Analysis.” Such ecstatic rhetoric is worthy of former Soviet fable tellers.

What the TTIP does not mention is securing of rights of the labor; nor does it mention the vanishing role of trade unions in Europe, which have, over the last century, even more than in the USA, been the only safety net for European workers. However, in a global world today, in order to stay competitive, a firm or an enterprise must lower the costs of production. Obviously, this must entail the constant reduction in workers’ wages, benefits, and, generally speaking, the reduction of budgetary allocations for the welfare state in Europe.

Another factor affecting meager growth in Europe, as Alain de Benoist writes in his new book dealing with the coming European apocalypse, is the huge pressure of big shareholders. In the modern capitalist system, both in the US and EU, companies finance shareholders and not the other way around. Modern shareholders always assume that a company or an enterprise must be in their service — starting with investment funds. Predictably, shareholders want to maximize the value of their capital gains even if that means for a national company or a firm to cut wages, carry out mass layoffs and relocate domestic citizens to faraway countries.

 

Capitalism and Christianity Breeding Interbreeding 

A third and the most serious problem the EU Commission is aware of, but does not want to tackle in public, is social and racial costs of non- European immigration to Europe. Immigration has always been a phenomenon linked to big business. As of now, according to official statistics, the European Union, with its 500 million people, has over 71 million immigrants, as reported by the very politically correct, French mainstream daily, Le Monde.According to recent statistics Spain, Germany and UK have more than half of all immigrants in the EU, that is, 6.5% of the EU population. There were 47.3 million foreign-born residents in the EU in 2010, corresponding to 9.4% of the total population. Of these, 31.4 million were born outside the EU with 16 million born in another EU member state. In 2007, out of 82.3 million inhabitants in Germany, 15.4 million had — what the German authorities and media euphemistically and in a politically correct German vernacular call — “migrant background” (Migrationshintergrund), meaning in plain English, non-White immigrants.

One must be careful though with the statistical body counts of immigrants, a procedure often falsely viewed in academia as the most reliable empirical basis for the study of immigration. The figure of 71 million immigrants in the EU does not specify whether this figure includes the number of illegal immigrants, or the number of White European immigrants relocating to other EU member states, or immigrants of color. In France, for instance, millions of Moroccan or Algerian residents and/or their descendants are not counted as immigrants, many being already naturalized and many holding two citizenships. The French law prohibits making statistics on the basis of racial affiliation; therefore, one cannot tell by official statistics the exact number of the non-Whites in France.

Acquisition of citizenship is also on the rise in the EU. In 2009, 776.000 persons obtained citizenship in 28 states comprising the European Union. However, millions of Africans and Asians, already naturalized in the UK and France, are not included in this figure. They are already considered “Europeans.”  Also, by U.S. Department of State estimates, as of 2011, there were 1.6 million Americans in Europe, the US military and diplomatic personnel not included. One could cautiously put the overall numbers of naturalized citizens of color, along with non-naturalized legal and illegal immigrants of color residing in the EU at 10 percent, i.e. roughly 50 million non- Whites in Europe.

Contrary to a widespread belief among many European and American Whites, not only the leftists or the antifas and other non-White ethnic activist organizations are advocates of non-European immigration. Big companies, big business and the Church bear the lion’s share of the responsibility for bringing in non-European immigrants. The merchant, just like his counterpart, the Communist commissar or the Christian prelate, does not like borders. In particular the Catholic Church in Europe has been over the last several decades the most outspoken champion of multiracial society. Theologically speaking, any state border is in contradiction with the spirit of Christian ecumenism, and its end result resulting in race mixing. In historical perspective, one only needs to briefly look at the open advocacy of race mixing by the Church in Latin America from the 17th to the 20th century.  From the perspective of capitalist free trade, however, immigration is in full accordance with the spirit of capitalism aiming at the erasure of all ethnicities and of all national borders (“laissez faire, laissez passer”).

Most non-European immigrants, both legal and illegal, owe their mass arrival to Europe to guilt-ridden, Christian-inspired, Good Samaritan humanitarianism professed by the Church combined with the so-called outsourcing brought about by the very logic of capitalism. Ever since the Industrial Revolution, at the beginning of the 19tcentury, capitalists have dreamed of the increased mobility of labor as well as continuous migration of people and races across the earth. This time around, big business has finally reached its hand to the Marxist inspired far-left and to modern Christian disciples of various stripes, the former aiming at dismantling the welfare state, considered too costly, the latter killing off the nation-state viewed  as an unchristian entity or considered a legacy of fascism.

One should examine first the Christian belief in egalitarianism and universalism and its secular economic and ideological derivatives, such as communism and capitalism, before criticizing non-European immigrants storming into Europe and the USA.

    In 2007, out of 82.3 million inhabitants in Germany, 15.4 million had — what the German authorities and media euphemistically and in a politically correct German vernacular call — “migrant background” (Migrationshintergrund), meaning in plain English, non-White immigrants.

    No, at least half of those with a “migrant background” are Europeans, many of them ethnic Germans. As of 2012, Germany is 80.5% German (with no migration background), 11.1% other European (including ethnic Germans from Russia, Kazakhstan, Romania, etc.), and 8.4% other.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Germany
    http://www.radixjournal.com/blog/census-europeans-europe
    http://www.bamf.de/SharedDocs/Anlagen/DE/Publikationen/Migrationsberichte/migrationsbericht-2012.pdf;jsessionid=A4F284F81CEE625E940D7985545699F1.1_cid368?__blob=publicationFile

    Some of these “Europeans” may in fact be Jews, Gypsies or non-whites, but they are likely outnumbered by whites from the Americas, Australasia and southern Africa, counted in the “other” category.

    So 91.6% white is a pretty good estimate of Germany’s present day demographics, not 81.3% white like the author assumes by counting all 15.4 million persons of a migration background as non-white. Things aren’t that bad yet!

    As for immigration into Germany, levels shrank drastically from 2000 to 2010 only to rise just as drastically in the last couple of years. The good news is the vast majority of these new immigrants are Europeans.

    In fact 17 of the top 20 source countries for immigrants to Germany are in Europe, with Poland far in the lead. Turkey, China and India are the only non-white countries in the top 20, and Turkish net migration to Germany has been negative for several years running now. Overall, net immigration to Germany today is probably about 80-90% white.

    As for birth rates by race in Germany, I can’t find any statistics on them, if they exist at all. Germans have had very low birth rates for decades now. But so do Turks, Germany’s largest minority group, especially compared to North African, Middle Eastern and South Asian Muslim populations elsewhere in Europe. So white births probably make up more than 80% of the total births in Germany.

    The bad news is that the percentage of whites in Germany is inevitably shrinking. The good news is that, thanks to mass European immigration, it’s shrinking very slowly. Slower than most other countries in Western Europe and much, much slower than the percentage of whites is shrinking in the US.

    So when whites become a minority in America less than 30 years from now, with Russia (which is facing its own mass illegal immigration invasion) not far behind, Germany will be left as the last large white-majority nation on Earth and truly the last, best hope of the white race.

    I find it difficult to believed that immigration in the West is motivated by Christian impulses amongst its peoples as claimed by the writer.

    Are you serious? You do realize that Catholics are, for the most part, an ‘obedient’ bunch. Whatever the pope says they slavishly do. And another thing is the pope himself is a cultural marxist; the problem therein lies.

Orthodox Christianity has traditionally been the most effective bulwark against takeovers. It is the abandonment of Christianity and replacement by Cultural Marxism as the new religion which is at the heart of the crisis.

    Today, I saw them today. Sitting on the steps, speaking spanish. Sitting and sitting, surrounded by all the goats, no, the kids or rather the children and all doing nothing. But eating yet nothing at all. Some though were walking and eating and all for free. Cannibals. here to eat your children alive. Should you be so fortunate to have created them. White women behind the wheel of nearly every automobile headed the other way. We looked at each other. Many were behind me. They had DOGS beside them, in the back seat. No goats, no kids, no children only empty wombs. White women given birth to dogs, on a leash. Kikery gone mad super usury of the womb.

    “The French law prohibits making statistics on the basis of racial affiliation; therefore, one cannot tell by official statistics the exact number of the non-Whites in France”.

    I’ll say! Provence and the Rhone valley, in general(up to Lyon) today looks like a blend of Madeira and Lebanon. lol
    You won’t find a clean-blooded Occitan in Provence too often these days, that’s for sure. I would venture to say that only about 10% of Provence’s population consists of folks with at least 2/4 Occitan ancestry.

    In the recent 20 years or so, it’s been a destination for thousands of Algerines, Tunisians, and Morroccans.

    But the non-European immigration to Provence started in the 1960s. Thousands of Armenians, Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews, Terroni di Napoli/Sicilia/Puglia, Greekos, Lebanese, Syrians, Andalusians, Berbers, Egyptian copts, Maltese, Portuguese from Canary islands, etc. flooded into Provence and the greater Rhone Valley.

    Perhaps these people resemble, to a very small degree, genuine Europeans,and might have had historical alliences with various European forces and states, but if we look at multiple parameters, they certainly are not. Not mentally, not genetically, not phenotypically.

    These people, unlike your average Occitan, were ambitious and precocious(have early maturation rates). In short time, they succeeded in displacing natives economically and demographically.

    What’s more, these people, being ultimately of Near Eastern extraction, after all, were and continue to be sympathetic to the incoming Muslim Berber-Arabs from the Maghreb.

    In case anyone had any doubts: Edith Piaf was half Berber. Alain Proust was half Armenian. Southern French resemble Northern and Central Italians in appearance, not Greco-Turks.

    Before anyone starts objecting to my claim:
    1)being non-Muslim doesn’t automatically make one a white European.
    2)In fact, residing on the European continent(Greeks, Pugliese, etc.) doesn’t make one a white European either.
    3)Light skin alone is also not a valid criteria for determining the above. (A chechen is white but a swarthy, sun-baked Croat from Herzegovina isn’t? lol)

    Bosniaks may be Muslim, but they are a mighty fine anthropological specimen. A noble race, indeed.
    We can almost say the same for Muslim Ghegs tribesmen from Rugova and Malsia regions of the Dinaric Alps.

    In a sane world, Bosnia would be a founding EU member, not Greece.

    PS: It’s also interesting and symbolic to note that palm trees, never native to Rhone Valley/Provence, were introduced there during the second half of the 20th century.

    Only according to Dugin & co. The rest of the world knows that a country with foreign troops stationed on its soil is not necessarily occupied. It makes no sense to say that contemporary Germany is an occupied country. Germany shares her problems (pathologies?) with the rest of the West (with the exception of Switzerland’s traditional referenda).

    The goyim’s biggest mistake is assigning mistakes and stupidity to the current global decline. The leadership knows exactly what it is doing and is following a carefully orchestrated plan. There is no mistake, no stupidity, no incompetence, only the appearance of such. For those who have not yet read this document, it long past too late.

    Sweden, as elsewhere in in Europe, has a native population that is too comfortable and this is the reason they won’t lift a finger to stop the massive immigration into their ancestral homelands.

    In Sweden it is now a catastrophe in the making. All parties in our Riksdag (Congress) agrees upon an open border policy. The latest estimate from our Bureau of Migration is 202 000 immigrants during 2014. Most get immediate access to health-care, schools, housing, etc. At the same time Sweden is in fierce competition with other countries both in the goods and service markets. The number of vacancies are not expanding, rather stagnating.

    To get a feel for the volume according to the Bureau of Migration the next 5 years around 900 000 will seek permit to stay in Sweden the coming 5 years. That is 10% of the Swedish population. Compared to the US it will mean than 32 Million immigrant would seek permit to stay during the next five years. I guess it is pretty obvious that the system will soon collapse, especially since Sweden grants ALL persons they stay in Sweden, even if they stay after their application has been turned down, free health care, free schooling, free food, housing, social benefits, etc.

    Probably you don’t believe me, sometimes I think I live in a dream – bur unfortunately its reality.

    On a further note about the secular trend of the increasing use of debt-funding rather than owners’ equity, banks often have large shareholdings in established companies, the franchises of which can be threatened by smaller, more nimble new competitors, offering technologies that may erode the value of established franchises. This conflict of interest bodes ill for future innovation.

    “””””Several costly mistakes were made by the founding fathers of the European Union:
    economics, and not politics, was thought to be the best tool to bring about the unification of Europe;””””

    Great article, my only problem is the idea that the EU using economics was a mistake, I think that it was a deliberate policy that still is working.

    Economics in its broadest sense covers most human interactions so by seizing economics they have taken over most political decisions in the EU and its individual countries. Sure national parliaments still write laws but the basis of the laws are often based on EU directives, and if not EU directives then WTO, UN and other international bodies.

    Sure the EU has had problems but they are not backing down in fact they are doubling down, pushing for even more power inside the EU and expansion outside of the EU. Anti-EU parties have gained seats both inside and outside the EU but the EU supporters still run things.

    Many are just in it for the money and power but there are many who are true believers in “The Project” and will keep pushing expansion even when it harms the EU. Why else would they want to expand into Ukraine, a country with terrible problems and one where the EU has no money to spend on since its all gone to bail out the bankers who have gone too deeply into debt.

    So I say that the choice of using economics was not a bug but a feature of the EU which has allowed them so much power without raising the objections that outright political program would have caused.

    As the formerly White world progressively becomes a new Africa, the capitalists will be making much less money than they would have made otherwise. Capitalism can not explain the immigration craziness. For example, how are the capitalists doing in the new South Africa? Probably not very well.

    “Germany is an occupied country with 50.000 US troops still stationed on its soil.”

    I wonder if Germany is more deeply occupied by the anti-White system than the rest of us. For example, I have noticed there is a German blog called As der Schwerter that points clearly to the Jewish role in the race-replacement crisis. I’m not sure if its authors live in Germany but it doesn’t seem they are in jail yet. The situation in Germany is probably similar to what it is in France. I would guess that a few hundred (or thousand?) people are fined in court every year for openly criticizing the Jews or opposing the population replacement. Maybe half a dozen of them do a short stay in jail. I think only few activists are targeted for special treatment and never ending legal prosecution. Recently in France, a Front National candidate was given a 9 month sentence because she published the picture of a baby monkey on her blog and said it was a childhood picture of the current minister for justice Christiane Taubira (who is from Guyana, and is in the government to do the dirty work of the anti-white lobby). But overall, thanks to the internet, it keeps getting easier to talk about race-replacement and the Jewish problem.

    About racial statistics in France: I think they are simply suppressed, and not yet officially forbidden, even if it amounts to the same. But for some reason, French anti-immigration activists keep repeating that racial stats are forbidden by law, which will only make it easier for the government to pass a law to that effect.

    About EU referendums: Just as in Denmark and Ireland, an EU treaty was rejected in a French referendum in 2005, but it didn’t make any difference either. Anyway, I’m glad I voted NO.

    Dr. Sunic is right about big business being a major force behind mass immigration. Although the Jews started the Multicultralism Industry, and the founder of the EU (Coudenhove-Kalergi) said the European of the future would be mixed-race, you only have to look at the factories, warehouses, shops, building sites — all areas where work take place, to see that big business is benefitting from a ready supply of docile, idiotic slaves they can use to bolster their own bank accounts. Sunic is right about this. Screw the EU!

    Outside of Europe: did you ever notice the Yezidi are white and Israel is linked to the Islamic State?

    Most of them look Balkanoid, but some of them could pass even here in UK.

    This why the big media doesn’t care?

    It’s important to remember though that mass-scale immigration to European predates the European Union. The EU is only the latest and worst contributor to the problem, but its path was opened by events prior. When the white empires collapsed [WW2-1960s], hundreds of thousands of non-whites migrated to European countries. Initially this was to meet labor shortages that arose from casualties and the post-war economic boom (who knew economic recovery would mean demographic doom?). But then in the case of African colonies especially, non-white imperial collaborators/local traitors, like the Indians of British east Africa or Jews of Algeria, also were let into Europe. It’s a real irony that in the rush to decolonize, the locals realized how awful their societies were without foreign management and wanted to leave them behind. Over a half century later many former colonies are war-torn, disease-ridden, and grossly unequal places that only the destitute and unambitous call home. The destitute and ambitious on the other hand happily move to European countries where guilt-addled whites welcome them.

    Of the capitalism and Christianity breeding and interbreeding look at the faces of the two christen missionaries brought back to the united states infected with the ebola virus. Doctors without borders and big pharmaceutical and the welfare state working hand in hand. It makes me sick seeing the catholic bishops celebrating mass along the Mexican border breaking bread with big corporations and crooked politicians.

    Recognized by the European Union as the most influential propagandist for the destruction of Europe’s distinct nations – they have a prize named in his honour – Richard Nicolaus von Coudenhove-Kalergi expressly desired the blending out of the White race in Europe, and eventually all other races everywhere except the ‘superior’ Jews.

    It is hard to see how that goal could be achieved without ‘floods of non-European immigration’ and hard to see how those floods could be unexpected when border controls were largely done away with.

    There was nothing unexpected or not wished for in what has happened. Race replacement was the goal, it was planned for and brought to fruition.

    If the editor reads comments he’ll have noticed most aren’t helpful. It was a good idea when he put an end to comments in the past and would be good now, in my humble.

    It is time for the Pope Francis to move to Asia or Africa. The Vatican needs to be closed a time until we get a pope who has the interests of Europeans and Caucasians.

    Thanks to Tom Sunic for a very good article.

    The EU’s role in the wholesale rape of Western manufacturing by Eastern parasites who flood our markets with shoddy imitations of the quality goods that were once the legal produce of the West is reason enough to bring out the rope for politician, bureaucrat, and banker alike.

    The banks, who own the politicians, demand the constant import of borrowers (immigrants) but soon the debts will be so large that there won’t be enough people on planet Earth to borrow what’s needed to keep the bubble afloat.

    Let’s be clear: any nation that fails to issue its own currency free of interest, but chooses, instead, to draw its money from bank created credit, is one that will soon discover the madness of trying to feed upon oneself. Just like the snake that tried to eat its own tail.
