“Border tax”: word-manipulation used to destroy Trump’s economic plan

“Border tax”: word-manipulation used to stop Trump’s economic plan

by Jon Rappoport

February 15, 2017

I’ll get to the devious word-manipulation in a minute, but first a bit of background.

Corporate Globalists are now gathering their forces to destroy Trump’s economic plan.

Their goal: stop Trump from laying tariffs on goods exported to America.

Trump has announced a simple and straightforward idea. If US companies shut down factories here and set them up in Third World hell holes, with slave labor and no environmental rules, and then export those goods back to the US, they’ll have to pay a stiff tariff.

That tariff will cut them off at the knees. They won’t be able to sell their products so cheaply here. In fact, they’d be better off re-opening their factories in the US and re-employing all those workers they threw out of jobs when they left the US.

Trump’s other obvious idea: countries where the labor is cheap have their own native companies, of course, who are producing goods and exporting them to the US—undercutting American companies who make the same products. Those foreign companies would also have to pay a stiff tariff, putting them on an equal footing with US manufacturers.

Globalists hate these plans. They want predatory corporations to roam free all over the world, gutting economies, and exporting their products to one and all, without paying tariffs.

This is what 50 years of conferences (1945-1995) on the treaty called GATT were all about. Knocking out tariffs. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade culminated in the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO), a pillar of the new world economic order.

Now, there is panic as Trump appears to be going after the WTO and its grand foundation.

And so we come to the word-manipulation.

Here are current news headlines. Read them and then I’ll explain.

New York Times: “Profitable pickups may be in cross hairs of Trump’s border tax.”

Marketwatch: “Target, Gap, Best Buy and other retailers going to DC to oppose border tax…”

Reuters: “Retail CEOs head to Washington to try to kill US border tax.”

Automotive News: “US border tax could raise vehicle tax…”

Wall St. Journal: “Border tax could upend global markets…”

Drudge summary of Financial Times: “BRUSSELS GEARS UP FOR HIGH-STAKES CHALLENGE TO ‘US BORDER TAX’ PLAN… Biggest case in World Trade Organization history…”

There are many more headlines along the same line. And they all mention “border tax.” What are they talking about?

Well, “border tax” equals “tariff,” a word that has been used since the founding of the American Republic. But suddenly the memo has gone out to mainstream news to use this other term instead.

Why? Because “border tax” suggests the idea of a tax connected with immigration, as in “border.” Yes, tariffs are traditionally collected at a nation’s border (a port) when imported goods arrive. But no one had been calling a tariff a border tax until now, when Trump is under heavy fire for his temporary immigration ban.

In order to pile on, and give a negative twist to the idea of a tariff, conflating it with immigration, we have “border tax.” Another bonus: everyone dislikes more taxes. So “border tax” has two negatives.

It’s called mind-control propaganda by word association.

War is peace.

Ignorance is strength.

And tariffs are (immigration) border taxes.

In the same way, sheer corporate greed (demanding an end to tariffs) has long been called “free trade.” It sounds positive. It’s the opposite of “slave trade.” More language manipulation. Wouldn’t you prefer being free to being a slave?

When “new world order” and “new international economic order” came into vogue, decades ago, the psyop was based on the idea that “new” was preferable to “old,” and “order” was much better than “chaos.”

Of course, “new world order” backfired, because millions of people saw through it.

Hopefully, the same thing will happen now to “border tax.”

As in: “Why yes, borders are good. They should be solid and well defined and protected. And that’s where tariffs are collected. Plus, draconian corporations should pay their taxes. Border-tax. It’s a terrific idea. Let’s do it.”

To the people of Europe who still believe in freedom

To the people of Europe who still believe in freedom

by Jon Rappoport

February 8, 2017

You can say all you want to about the history of Europe, but you also have to say that Europe was the cradle of liberty for the whole world.

The main struggle was held there. And finally, the clear idea of individual freedom emerged.

Then, gradually, in the wake of two World Wars, a new theme took hold. You could call it comfort, or security, peace for all, share and care, the good life.

Under a dominating tax rate, citizens had “services” provided by their governments. Many pleasant services.

Why not? All was well.

Even when these governments were placed under the umbrella of the European Union, most citizens of member countries perceived no real problems—as long as the services continued to flow.

But there was an addendum to the basic contract. The national governments, and their superiors at the EU…they were the Providers, and they could, at their whim, turn the screw and apply new oppressive rules to the citizenry. And they could, if resistance appeared, drop their pose of benevolence and take on the role of Enforcer.

And if they did, where would liberty and individual freedom go?

It would go away.

Escalating floods of migrants entered Europe. This was a turning of the screw. Brought about by “upper management” of the Providers. The crimes and disruptions of these migrants have been well documented in independent media. The people of Europe had no say about the invasion. In fact, it soon became a prosecutable offense to write about it or speak about it in a public forum.

The lords of government would brook no opposition.

The basic liberty—speaking freely—was on the line and under the boot heel.

In fact, for years, a campaign of political correctness in speech had been waged all over Europe. It covered many areas. The EU had been aiding and abetting it.

The “good life” was cracking at the seams. It wasn’t all good anymore.

The Provider was becoming the Enforcer.

Looking back on the change, it was always obvious that it was waiting in the wings. The Providers weren’t messiahs of a socialist utopia. That pretense was merely an intermediate phase in a much larger operation.

Mollify the citizenry for a time, “give them services,” and then when they were lulled into complacency, when they felt safe and secure, when they’d traded liberty for something that looks like liberty, start the chaos.

And clamp down. Assert overt control.

The EU structure was never extreme enough for the overlords. After all, it was a confederation of separate nations. The covert operation was One Nation of Europe, drained of separate traditions, with all former, distinguishing, national characteristics removed. The goal was one continental entity, seeded with enough migrants to eliminate visible differences, and roiled in conflicts.

To make a stew, heat and stir.

Eventually, eliminate the memory that, at one time, individual freedom was birthed in those countries. And one step further: eliminate the knowledge of what individual freedom is.

Bring in immigrants from cultures where authentic freedom, with its attendant responsibilities, means nothing.

The operation is well underway.

The lords of government never wanted utopia. They wanted, and want, submission. They achieved the soft version. Now they’re aiming for the hard.

This is modern European history not taught in schools. Schools would ban even a hint of it.

So the struggle begins again.

It has many faces—some of them ideological, which is to say, embedded in groups for whom national and ethnic identity is the foremost concern.

How long will it take before The Individual, defined by HIS OWN choice and vision, APART FROM SUCH IDENTITY, reemerges?

That was the original battle of the ages: the liberation of each individual.

It wasn’t easy then, and it won’t be easy now.

But it begins in the mind.

And not the group mind.

Not in any group.

In 1859, John Stuart Mill wrote:

“If it were felt that the free development of individuality is one of the leading essentials of well-being…there would be no danger that liberty should be undervalued.”

Escaping from, and dissolving the trap that is now Europe may be the work of cooperating groups; but the reason for the escape will ultimately come back to the individual, his power, and his independent self-chosen destiny.

He carries the torch.

Though it may not seem so, his flame vaporizes collectivism.

It was always so, and it is now.

Europe’s great thinkers and writers were the very people who made this clear: freedom exists and it pertains to the individual, not the group, not some shadowy entity, not a collective; freedom is not simply a word or a floating ideal waving its banner in the air; it is the soul’s platform, from which all good things become possible; it is the starting point of a life; it is the blood that runs through a dream of a created future, a better future; it is the brother of the individual’s accountability for his own actions.

Throw a blanket over freedom, and no one is accountable.

This is why so many people now deny freedom. They want to remain unaccountable.

They want everything for nothing, and they want the right to spend that everything, or burn it, tear it up, destroy it. And then ask for more.

For them, the countries of Europe are just places. Easy places to exploit.


Exit From the Matrix

But no matter the circumstances, the inner core of the struggle is the same: the liberation of the individual from all the forlorn hopes that lead him back to searching for the utopia he once believed was coming.

That painted illusion is going away.

The individual, falling back on his own resources, will need to relearn half-forgotten lessons. He will have to ignite his own energy.

The challenge can be bracing, and much more. It can awaken sleeping corridors of the spirit, where he once walked in power.

And can walk again.

Profound dissatisfaction and resistance can breed joy.

Once upon a time, he knew that, and then he abandoned the knowledge for a syrupy potion of a New Age; now the bottle is dry.

Now, he is the creator of his own enterprises; his own destiny.

I say Europe will live again.

Judge’s order to block Trump’s immigration travel ban is ridiculous

Judge’s order to block Trump’s immigration travel ban is ridiculous

by Jon Rappoport

February 5, 2017

The Judge is playing games. He’s lying.

He obviously doesn’t like Trump’s immigration travel ban, so he’s cooking up reasons for slapping a temporary restraining order on it.

A freshman in law school could point out holes in those reasons big enough to drive a fleet of trucks through.

On February 3rd, Judge James Robart issued his order (Case 2:17-cv-00141-JLR Document 52 Filed 02/03/17 Page 1 of 7): he temporarily restrained the federal government from enforcing Trump’s immigration travel ban.

The Judge’s order is absurd for several reasons.

First of all, objections to Trump’s ban were entered into the court by the States of Washington and Minnesota, as the “injured parties.” But Judge Robart announced his decision would affect all States—the whole country—because immigration law must be applied “uniformly” across the board.

Perhaps, but nowhere is it stated that a temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by a judge must be applied uniformly across the whole country.

Since when is a TRO the same as a law?

Speaking of law, no final legal/constitutional decision has been rendered re Trump’s Executive Order on immigration. It’s still up for grabs. The Judge is just writing script to suit his bias.

The Judge may not like Trump’s ban; clearly, he does not. The Judge may believe the ban will be overturned by a higher court because it is unconstitutional. The Judge may think Trump is committing an immoral act. But all that is beside the point. The only thing Judge Robart was empowered to do was issue a TRO or not issue a TRO. Period.

Why should he have the right to apply his TRO, not a law, to the whole of the United States? Maybe he’s a god we haven’t been told about. If so, I’d like to see the evidence.

Next point: The judge made a number of comments to justify issuing his the TRO: “The States are likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of [my] preliminary relief [restraining order].”

That is absurd on its face. Irreparable harm? This means harm that can never be fixed? Come on. The Judge may as well have said, “I’m biased. I don’t like Trump’s EO and I don’t like him. So when I said ‘irreparable’, I exaggerated by a few thousand miles. Ha-ha.”

The Judge wrote: “The EO [Trump’s Executive Order limiting immigration] adversely affects the States’ residents in areas of employment, education, business, family relations, and freedom to travel.”

More fluff, nonsense, and outright deception. Does the Judge seriously expect us to believe that the banning of 35,000 more refugees than the 2016 federal cap is going to decimate the States?

(In his EO, Trump wrote: “I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I determine that additional admissions would be in the national interest.” An NPR political editor stated: “For 2016, the cap was 85,000.” The difference is 35,000.)

Judge Robart wrote: “In addition, the States themselves are harmed by virtue of the damage…inflicted upon the operations and missions of their public universities…as well as injury to the States’ operations, tax bases, and public funds.”

Same objections as above. Judge Robart is stretching the truth to the breaking point. His definition of “harm” and “irreparable harm” are coming from his private dictionary of exaggerations. He’s winging it.

Case closed.

Except it isn’t.

A Judge who can take powers not granted to him, who can invent, out of whole cloth, dire consequences where none exist, is hustling the system he’s sworn to defend.

California proves it’s a Mickey Mouse state

California proves it’s a Mickey Mouse state

by Jon Rappoport

January 30, 2017

The California state government, together with the voting bloc of so-called Progressives, acts like a child who steals his rich parents’ credit cards, maxes them out, gives his new Ferrari to “a friend in need,” burns down his own house, and then complains that things are not going well.

Financial analysts, and even Governor Jerry Brown, agree that the real debt of the California government is…$400 billion. That’s right. This includes bond issues, retirement and pension fund obligations, and health care for retirees.

My, my. And the state has no way to pay for this staggering debt as it mounts in the future.

“Well, we were just trying to help everybody and give them money and benefits.” Yes, I’m sure you were. Here’s a lollipop and a free ticket to Disneyland for your efforts. Now, are there any adults left in California who can try to salvage the ruins?

But wait, there’s more. The new Trump administration is threatening to cut federal funds to California, unless its sanctuary cities agree to cooperate in handing over illegal immigrants for deportation. So California officials, intent on protecting those immigrants, are pondering ways to replace that lost federal funding. At the top of their to-do list? Withholding state-taxes they’re required to send to Washington every year, and using the money to make up for the new impending shortfall.

This isn’t your great-great grandfather’s tax rebellion. This is a massive debtor-state government bloviating about helping immigrants in need while they, themselves, are drowning in a sea of red ink without a life preserver.

“We don’t care how much money we owe. It doesn’t matter. We’re virtuous. That’s all that counts.”

This is Paul Revere riding his horse backwards shouting, “The creditor is coming! The creditor is coming!”

This is a young junkie knocking on his rich father’s door, yelling, “Dad, I just need to tell you I won’t take your money ever again to buy heroin! I’m independent!”

This is, “Give us your huddled un-screened illegal masses coming through the southern border yearning to obtain free healthcare and driver’s licenses and welfare benefits. And even give us those who are here to commit crimes and terrorist acts and take back California for Mexico. All that matters is that we appear to be virtuous.”

It’s far too late to tell the government of California to get its act together. The number-one act in the state is Hollywood. That should tell you something. Celebs, as they build deeper bunkers armed with mortars and missile launchers, are desperately sending out share-and-care messages for the greater good of humanity.

Here’s the kicker. A significant portion of California’s debt is underwritten by big banks: Goldman Sachs; Citigroup, Bank of America; Morgan. Do the California officials who are talking about withholding state taxes from the federal government really think those banks are going to stand on the sidelines while this gimmick-laden plan moves forward? Not a chance. The banks are aligned with the feds. The banks own the government of California.

A few phone calls and the plan will collapse like a snowball in a heat wave.

Who’ll be your sugar-daddy then, California?

One final note—California Governor Jerry Brown, who seems to be a staunch defender of open borders, the immigrant flood, and sanctuary cities (at least he’s not publicly opposing them), sang a quite different tune in 1975.

Clifford Cunningham writes at infowars: “While citizens of South Vietnam sought refuge in the United States following their country’s defeat by communist forces from North Vietnam, many liberal Democrats opposed efforts by Republican President Gerald Ford to admit them.”

“The group of Democrats included then-Governor of California Jerry Brown (now governor for the second time)…’As a rookie governor when Saigon fell in 1975 and the U.S. was flying Vietnamese refugees to America, Brown was outspokenly opposed,’ reported the Los Angeles Times in 2015.”

“In particular, Brown said in 1975: ‘There is something a little strange about saying, Let’s bring in 500,000 more people when we can’t take care of the 1 million [Californians] out of work’.”

“Julia Taft, who directed Ford’s Task Force on Indochinese refugee resettlement, told author Larry Engelmann in his book, Tears Before the Rain: An Oral History of the Fall of South Vietnam, ‘The new governor of California, Jerry Brown, was very concerned about refugees settling in his state’.”
“’Our biggest problem came from California’,” Taft said during an interview with NPR in 2007. ‘They didn’t want any of these refugees, because they had also unemployment. They had already a large number of foreign-born people there’.”

“’They had – they said they had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, they didn’t want these people’.”

I see. Well, how times change. In 1975, it was permissible to reject immigrants and explain why. It was permissible to claim too many people were already on welfare. It was permissible to prefer helping people who already lived in California.

But not now. It’s not politically correct to make such statements or hold such views in public. Now you have to go the opposite way, regardless of what you actually believe. Even if it drops the state into a deeper hole.

“Hello, world. Send us EVERYBODY. No limits. We’re virtuous. I swear it. I really mean it. Now excuse me, I have to go see a man about fortifying my bunker with autonomous drones and robot security guards. Remember, I care. Deeply.”

Will California secede from the US? I hope so.

Will California secede from the United States? I hope so.

by Jon Rappoport

January 4, 2017

Not going to happen, but it’s interesting to imagine it.

Several groups in California are pushing for a ballot measure that, if passed, would allow the state’s voters to decide, in a direct referendum, whether to remain part of the US or become an independent country.

I’d like to see California secede, on the basis that they want a green economy and they want to “adjust” their immigration policies. It would be a sight to behold. Wide open borders and wind propellers everywhere. I’d give CA five years until total collapse.

It would be first state to secede and then beg to be let back into the country.

Its president, Jerry Brown, would release a statement: “This is a big oops. We miscalculated. It turns out we can’t afford open borders. And I’m not just talking about the upsurge in crime and terror attacks. The social services we provide all immigrants are overwhelming our institutions and our financial resources. No one wants to underwrite the loans we require. We’re screwed and we’re sorry. Please re-admit us to the Union. We need to become the biggest Welfare State in history right away.”

Yes, let’s see the green revolution and social justice play out on a large stage. Let’s see the consequences.

How about this potential news story: “Lawmakers in California have been exposed for lying about global warming in their new country. After spending several billion dollars they didn’t have, to put up a satellite to measure climate change, it turned out the reported numbers were fudged because, as one legislator stated (off the record): ‘What did you expect? The actual numbers showed there was no warming, but we couldn’t admit that. Are you kidding? After we spent six billion to get the figures, we ended up with zilch. It was a disaster. We had to lie, to protect the reputation of our new nation.”

The vice-president of California, Barbara Boxer, would announce: “The policy of forcing two women into top executive positions at our major corporations for every man has failed. Corporate warfare has broken out. In boardrooms across the state, a poisonous atmosphere prevails. We must backtrack and reconsider.”

Several pro-immigration groups would issue a joint statement: “Consequences are irrelevant. The point is, this is a battle to take back California for Mexico. Our whole goal is extending the nation of Mexico to the north, and nothing will stop us. Anyone living in the nation of California who isn’t a Mexican is an illegal. We’re righting a wrong, and that’s all that matters. Our Treasury must replace dollars with pesos, and it must issue as many trillions as necessary to give our people a free standard of living.”

The California Dept. of Energy would release a new regulation: “In view of the current energy shortages, our Weather Control Department is hereby empowered to create continuous massive storms, in order to dramatically increase air flow for our wind power installations.”

And then there would be this, from the California Dept. of the Environment: “A new tiny species of fish, slightly larger than a bacterium, has been discovered along our shores, as well as in rivers and streams. In order to protect the BX-2-S-V fish, all flow of water (including desalination) from these bodies of water into farms is hereby canceled, until long-term studies on the threat to the BX-2-S-V’s survival can be established…”


Exit From the Matrix

Yes, it would be a real party.

The businesses that would expand? Underground bunker building for super-wealthy Silicon Valley and Hollywood moguls, and armed security services.

And oh yes: California’s government-owned vaccine manufacturer would take off like a rocket, because according to new laws, every resident of the state would be forced to endure shots of 58 vaccines. Failure to comply would be met with a three-year sentence at a marijuana-growing work camp in Humboldt, presided over by Sinaloa Cartel muscle. Sinaloa, of course, would be the biggest corporation in the new nation.

Its chief, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who escaped jail in Mexico 47 times, would live in a walled compound that covers a third of the city of Sacramento. He would be California’s Secretary of Defense.

Yes, this west coast nation would put on quite a show.

When virtue is the greatest crime

When virtue is the greatest crime

by Jon Rappoport

December 13, 2016

Who are they?

Behind their flaccid smiles is a roaring furnace of anger.

They believe love motivates them. Love, and the worship of some leader who stands for love.

This delusion can topple a society and a civilization.

They have been taught to be good. They been trained in that way, and they embrace their training as both a shield and a sword, as they set out to change the world.

There are millions of them.

Who are they?

They advocate “share and care” without limit. This is their religion. For them, there is no ceiling on supporting those in need, and there are no negative consequences. There is no taking from Peter to pay Paul. It doesn’t exist.

If you told these soldiers for the Good that they could open a door and let 30 million immigrants into the country overnight, they would open the door without hesitation. Downside? Irrelevant. Being good is all that matters. It is the imperative. To betray it would be an unpardonable sin and would destroy them, these holy soldiers.

On the other hand, if you said you had a plan to put two million unemployed Americans back to work tomorrow, they would register indifference. That idea doesn’t fit their world view. Back to work means WORK. Earning a living. Some measure of responsibility and accountability. Self-reliance. Strength. Where is the CHARITY in that? Where is the unlimited giving? Where is the love?

Where is “everything for nothing?” This is their motto. This is proof of their caring and goodness. Threaten to take that away from them and their expressions harden and they begin to spit venom.


Exit From the Matrix

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)


You are now tapping into their secret: they are SELF-BLAMING failures. No one is doing it to them. They are doing it to themselves. This is their enduring psychology.

Their scheme has become: substitute “other for self.” This is the key. They have abandoned self for “giving everything to other.” This is the substitute vision.

As soon as they sense a plan or an idea or a promise is going to derail that formula, they boil over in anger.

They can be magnetized as a formidable political force. Easily. All they require is a figure who seems to represent “everything for nothing” and “other” rather than self.

They can stand in the streets holding candles, or given the signal, they can smash things.

They are the counter-revolution that has been building in this country for over a hundred years. It is being managed from elite platforms, and its goal is the destruction of every shred of the original ideas on which this country was founded. Destruction in fact, in thought, in action, and in memory. Wipe out the memory of…

Individual freedom…

And what freedom implies.

Wipe out self.

Replace it with an all-embracing societal machine dedicated to love.

As if such a thing could actually exist.

These are notes from my work-in-progress, The Underground:

“The open-door immigration policy of the European Union is justified by pointing out Europe’s guilt for past colonial sins. Well, I have news. You can go anywhere in the world, focus in on any nation, any tribe, and you can discover that, at some point in the past, they did grievous harm to some other group, nation, tribe, or to their own people. You can use history to claim that everybody should give back everything to everybody else. Everybody should be down on their knees, weeping and gnashing their teeth and giving away all they have. Stimulating guilt in order to seize and maintain power is a strategy as old as the hills, but the current generation seems never to have heard of it.”

“Under the corrupt banner of the European Union, the whole continent is now seen as a giant charity agency; the receiving ward for waves of immigrants who, for any reason, want to arrive and settle. The past brilliance and innovation of Europe now is relegated to myth. Saving everyone—an impossible feat—is on the table. Of course, Europe as humanitarian messiah is a piece of propaganda, nothing more. The actual intent is wiping out separate European nations and their traditions. But this is not supposed to be discussed.”

“The EU is the fulfillment of various master plans. One continent, under one government and one economy. Instead of waving the sword of conquest, the strategy is ‘share and care’, ‘greatest good for the greatest number’.”

“Make a list of the great European artists and inventors of the last 10 centuries. Those names are now irrelevant. It’s a fascist felony to invoke them. They’re just distractions from the modern crusade: save the whole world. Give up everything in the process. The Utopians are at it again, spinning their fantasies for the gullible, while planning how to make their iron hammer bigger. No wonder the Roman Church is on board.”

“The Global Citizen as a role is a now an artifice. It’s a stripped-down, brain-addled position to be occupied by a bureaucratic functionary. With a few Disneyesque slogans, he’s off and running, saving this and that. The young think they’re discovering ‘the real road to salvation’, which no one has ever conceived of before. And the European Union is the extended modern ‘body of Christ’.”

“This dream of One Europe is not new. Men we might otherwise consider brilliant have touted it as ‘the solution’. James Joyce: ‘If Ireland is to become a new Ireland she must first become European’. Winston Churchill: ‘If Europe were once united in the sharing of its common inheritance there would be no limit to the happiness, the prosperity, and the glory which its 300,000,000 or 400,000,000 people would enjoy’. Victor Hugo: ‘No more frontiers! The Rhine for everyone! Let us be the same Republic, let us be the United States of Europe, let us be the continental federation, let us be European liberty, let us be universal peace’! —But how easy it is to anticipate the ACTUAL outcome of this vision, knowing it is placed in the hands of corporate, government, and banker mafia-bosses.”

“The primary purpose of the French citizen and the German citizen and the British citizen is not ‘loving each other’. It is not their destiny to melt into one cheese Glob.”

“Throughout Europe’s history, despite the wars of blood, great men and women have appeared in its midst. They have forwarded freedom and invention. They were beyond notions of restrictive nationality, but that does not mean they were pan-Europeans. They weren’t striving to build one political system for the continent. They exemplified liberation. By and for the individual.”

“Killing Europe is the Globalist dream. Reducing it to one welfare state, drained of all ambition, is the strategy. Ruling it as a police state, on behalf of a ‘worker’s paradise’, is the end-game.”

“In the late 18th century, America’s first foreign policy rule was to avoid Europe, with its secret alliances and wars. But in the emergence of the American Republic, the first acknowledgement was to Europe, where the foundation for individual liberty was built. What Europe achieved, in that regard, was no accident. It was the end result of a centuries-long struggle. But now the leaders of Europe are determined to throw all that away. To bury the history, as if it had never happened. If there is any alliance between America and Europe now, it should be based on the original vision of individual liberty. That connection should be forged again.”

“Under the top-heavy national governments of Europe, and under the massive EU bureaucracy that sits on top of the governments, the message to the population of Europe is clear: ‘Keep your eyes straight ahead, fit into your slot, don’t dissent, and collect as many government freebies as you can. Cede your individual power to the collective, and take heart in the fact that your participation in the whole is a heroic act—because the whole collective IS the hero.’ Really? Any child should be able to see though that formulation in a few seconds.”

“Anyone who believes the entire reason for Europe opening its doors wide, to unlimited migration, is payment for past colonial sins, committed in other parts of world, should take a look at Angela Merkel, one of the foremost proponents of unlimited immigration. Do you really think she is trying to atone for the past? She is an agent of Globalism. She is carrying out that agenda.”

“Once a top-heavy all-encompassing national government takes power, it’s an easy step to imposing a still higher level of control—in this case, the EU. Why not? The citizens have already been entrained to accept autocratic rule from above—just add another layer. Few people will notice it. It’s more of the same. The people keep believing they’re getting marvelous goodies for free, even as they’re paying higher taxes. The transition from “free individual” to “citizen” is a given. And citizens eventually think of themselves as PARTS OF A WHOLE. Massive propaganda assures them that this conception is SPIRITUAL. This is what the cosmos wants. This is what the cosmos is.”

“It would be interesting to do a poll in the street, based on the following statement: ‘We’re getting people to sign a petition to eliminate the word INDIVIDUAL, because the needs of everybody come first, because we have to think of what is good for everyone…’ How many people would jump on board?”

“Europe is becoming a ghost of its former self. The former self has less and less influence, because fewer people remember or understand what it was, what it meant. This is no accident. Education is the tool for forgetting. WE ARE SEEKING APPLICANTS FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF AMNESIA. ALL ARE WELCOME.”

“Shakespeare? Bach? Goethe? Mozart? Raphael? Rembrandt? Degas? Yeats? Who were they? Who cares? We have different problems now. The only people who can solve them are our leaders. We need more equality. We need to make sure everyone is the same.”

“In the former Soviet Union, if you lived in an apartment building where garbage accumulated and stank on the stairs, you left it there, because your neighbor, living in the next building over, had garbage on his stairs. If you removed yours, it would make him look bad. This is where Europe is heading.”

“John Locke? Albert Camus? Rimbaud? Cezanne? Jane Austen? Are they EU Commissioners? Are they doing a good job?”

“It will be seen that, if person A can read, and person B can’t, person A has an unfair advantage, which he gained through illegitimate ‘privilege’. Therefore, instead of person B learning to read, the smoother course will be to make person A’s advantage meaningless. How will this be done? By engineering a future in which no one needs to read. A top-heavy bureaucracy always brings about a generalized solution.”


Exit From the Matrix


“Why, for example, should the Scandinavian countries have their own languages? This surely creates barriers. However, instituting and teaching one new language for everyone presents problems. The answer? Create a future in which language is barely necessary. Half the citizens will arrange and monitor the lives of the other half, by pressing keys on machines. The details of the plan? The EU will eventually work them out.”

“The EU will bring in a new money system: every person who resides on the continent will receive a basic income. He/she can spend that digital credit as desired. A bell will ring in some store or on some website when a person’s credit account reaches zero. And when enough zeroes are attained, people will riot and demand further income. Their wishes will be granted, as long as they don’t leave their homes after 8PM.”

“All Europeans will, in one way or another, as direct employees or contractors, work for the EU. Of course, work will be defined as: whatever you can get away with. Because no one will care.”

“There is no algorithm that can predict the precise moment when Europeans will have had enough. But there is such a moment. At that point, large numbers of people will begin remembering that Europe once had its greatnesses. And they will be willing to imagine new greatness in terms that crack the pillars and the foundations stones of the EU. This will mark the return of the individual.”

But why wait? Wait for what?
