Western World Dying of Love Generation Consequences

 

Western societies’ great experiment into free love and if it feels good do it will die of their corollary, love free of responsibility. That is love free of entanglements, love free of responsibilities, love free of children and love leading to no future. The free love generation which started with the baby boomers and though it altered its likes, it never really gave up on the main point; it is about the I, the me, what I want, what it does for me, where I want to, when I want to, it’s all my and mine and all without responsibility and without any downers, a bummer free life and anything getting in the way must be discarded, relationships, jobs, anything and maybe everything including babies as life must continue hassle free without any potholes. That is the problem because it is also all about now with no concern for the future because all the future has to be is trouble free. This has led to the lowest marriage rate in Western history. This led to a whole new way of employer-employee relations such that even the rules changed that there was even a new rule, a new law that certain recognized conditions are no longer reasons for termination. The most outlandish of these new conditions was if an employee was late to work more than three times each week then that employee has a disability which is defined as chronic time disability which was the act of not being able to keep a schedule and thus often being late for appointments including for work. The law was the Americans with Disability Act which basically if one could find a physician to write up that you had some chronic quirk which was beyond your ability to control, then you now were disabled and an employer had to make allowances for your disability. Granted, that liberal interpretation was eventually narrowed but the damage had been done and employment was now more of a loose agreement which was often in constant flux between employers and employees. Granted that in most cases the employer still held the upper hand but if one was willing to push it the employer often figured that it would be less trouble to simply accommodate the employee and try to make the best of it. Just the last straw in the hassle free lifestyle which had become the new normal, heck, even dress codes went the way of the rotary phone.

 

The greatest disability that has permeated the new society which the Western World had accepted has been that the future will take care of itself and we have no obligation to fashion or sacrifice to make a better future because our lives are defined in the now and leave the future to tomorrow. Of course Western society does not exactly admit their careless treatment of the future though they do enjoy their carefree lifestyles and claim that this is the way things should be and everything will work out. Well, after all the future has always worked out up to now and our parents didn’t seem to be all that different. Well, sure, they were usually more serious but they always said that our happiness was the most important thing and why they did everything they did. That’s what we are doing, everything is for our happiness because that is the most important thing on earth, our parents drilled that into us from before since we could remember.

 

It is obvious that not everyone born after around the middle of the last century is living totally in the now with no regard for tomorrow, but the end results of current Western society and culture is having exactly that effect. Couples both have high stress careers and put off starting a family and time slips away leading to them simply never getting around to having that family. Others simply figure they will get around to marriage and everything which goes with it and end up with the same result. Then there are the frightening abortion figures where in some communities the number of aborted pregnancies far outnumbers the pregnancies which go full term. Since Roe vs. Wade was decided and abortion became legally and socially acceptable in 1973, abortions have reached approximately sixty-thousand in the United States alone. Worldwide pregnancies resulting in an abortion since 1980 are approaching one and a half billion.

Europe, as can be noted above, has a real problem as their birthrates for most nations has fallen below replacement levels which is a large part of why they are allowing increasing immigration from wherever they can find them. There will be reports to try and belay the concerns claiming that the number of abortions has been decreasing in recent years, which is true. What they will not report is the percentage of pregnancies ending in an abortion have remained at a steady thirty to thirty-five percent and part of the reason for the lower numbers is due to less women of childbearing age. In America the reason that the replacement level is being met is twofold, first is the higher percentage of non-European ancestral origins with a growing Hispanic community and a higher percentage of religious population which has also been growing and are anti-abortion and having larger families. The end result of the higher abortion levels and also much higher use of preventive measure such as birth control pills and other measures has resulted in a dropping population level amongst European Caucasians with some predicting a dire future where the numbers may reach a level where their influence politically will dwindle and become inconsequential. This will become very evident in Europe as the continent will slowly but inexorably become Islamic as the refugees continue to pour into the continent. Perhaps the reasoning by the European Union for their expansion into the Middle East and Northern Africa is not to subsume and take control of these areas as much as they are surrendering to them and seeking the best terms as the writing is on the wall. Europe is joining the Middle East and North African society. However one looks at the article we recently posted about the European Union planning on entering and merging the Middle East and North Africa and possibly somewhat further into central Asia and central Africa as they see an expansive Islam on the rise and are simply surrendering to what they see as unavoidable. The move by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to offer for Germany to accept 800,000 Syrian refugees which started the flood of Middle Eastern and North African refugees, both escaping warfare or economic difficulties, entering Europe was a tactical move to make transitions to join the Islamic realm of influence easier and make it so fast that the native population will be unable to prevent the surrender, and that is what is occurring, a surrender. The Brexit vote may save Britain from such a fate and once again the world may see a British holdout against threats from a fascist and threatening European Continent. Some in Britain may be groaning “not again” in the not too distant future and once again holding the line until the United States awakens to a dire situation where some disaster brings them rapidly into the worsening situation.

 

Some have looked at the abortion and the live for the moment and the future will take care of itself attitude in Western civilization and wondered and worried where it might lead. Many are starting to realize that things have gotten out of hand and may soon turn beyond any reason to control their future. It is somewhat more dire in Europe as their influx is almost completely Islamic while in the United States their influx is from south of the border which is largely Hispanic and Catholic or Christian and thus compatible with the United States Judeo-Christian history and ethics. The future of Europe, Britain and the United States will all be determined within the next twenty-five to fifty years and perhaps even sooner in the case of Europe. The slide from a functional culture to a faltering crisis started soon after World War II when after two world wars within a quarter of a century the Europeans tired of fighting for anything that they are largely exhausted and primed to surrender, or at least their political class appears ready to hand the keys to a new culture believing as multiculturalists that there really is not much difference between one culture and the next. They will soon realize how completely erroneous and empty that belief truly is. The highest turn out for any vote in the history of the British Isles has definitively proven in the end the British population, by a slim margin, wanted their nation back. Meanwhile, many will watch with their own measure of horror or sickness as Europe’s Judeo-Christian Culture faces a crisis as it is subsumed and then extinguished by Islam revealing to the remainder of the world exactly the true face of Islam. May those who desire to retain their culture awaken in time to make their way to safety before it is too late. The last time the continent fell into the darkness of Hitler’s Nazis and their anti-Judeo-Christian ethos and culture of death too many waited far too long and the world came to witness what horrors mankind can afflict their fellow human beings. May the world not permit a similar darkness to envelop and destroy a civilian population once again. Sometimes one looks at the leadership of their company or citizens’ committee or even their political class and cannot fathom what they are thinking knowing their ideas will lead only to ruin but remain silent believing others will make things right. May such not be the coming fate in the continent of Europe.

The European Union Actually Planning Empire

 

It turns out that there is actual evidence issued in European Union (EU) documents spelling out their designs to extend their domain and control over the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and on to Central Asia and Middle of the African Continent. These plans existed before the British voted to depart the EU with their Brexit referendum. Still, the EU will likely attempt to exercise this extending of the areas wrapped up in their web of dictatorial control and this may be part of the plan with the admitting of the refugees from MENA areas as their plans would incorporate much of the Muslim and Arab worlds in their extended governance. The actual released plans are in a PDF format titled Shared Vision, Common Action: A Stronger Europe A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy. The “European Union Global Strategy Executive Summary” begins as follows:


We need a stronger Europe. This is what our citizens deserve, this is what the wider world expects.
We live in times of existential crisis, within and beyond the European Union. Our Union is under threat. Our European project, which has brought unprecedented peace, prosperity and democracy, is being questioned. To the east, the European security order has been violated, while terrorism and violence plague North Africa and the Middle East, as well as Europe itself. Economic growth is yet to outpace demography in parts of Africa, security tensions in Asia are mounting, while climate change causes further disruption. Yet these are also times of extraordinary opportunity. Global growth, mobility, and technological progress – alongside our deepening partnerships – enable us to thrive, and allow ever more people to escape poverty and live longer and freer lives. We will navigate this difficult, more connected, contested and complex world guided by our shared interests, principles and priorities. Grounded in the values enshrined in the Treaties and building on our many strengths and historic achievements, we will stand united in building a stronger Union, playing its collective role in the world.

 

The wordy introductory summary continues for three more pages of droning boredom which one can read at the link above followed by approximately fifty or so more pages. The one thing which is made evident is that the European Union, a.k.a. Germany and Herr Merkel are looking at the first step to world conquest by absorbing the Middle East and the oil fields and Northern and Central Africa because that is as far as Germany got the last time they tried a somewhat more violent conquest of the world. This time they are taking, as we noted the other day, an economic conquest by simply out producing the other member states such that the Euro reflects German output thus making every other nation relying on German largess to remain financially solvent. This has been made excessively evidenced by the recent years as Greece would have starved and not been capable of even fueling their police vehicles without German ‘loans’ which came with demands for altering the societal work ethic and other actions by government and population to suit demands and desires of the German government. Greece proved more stubborn than expected but the Germans did accomplish impressing the idea that without the favors from Germany the Greek society would have collapsed and thus they owed Germany their warmest and most earnest gratitude, but the Greeks drew the line short of obedience. Still, it is evident not only in Greece but Italy, Spain and, to a lesser extent, France all are left looking at German economic output and work ethic and realize that as goes Germany, so goes the European Union.

 

The main sticking point at the moment is that should petroleum prices rise the EU economy would slow creating problems even for Germany. Further, raw materials are another essential requirement for the EU economic engines and assuring these will continue without interruptions or financial instability driving the EU economies accordingly. Should the EU expand their influence and control such that the Middle East oil and the raw materials found in Central Africa then the EU would become pretty much completely self-reliant and finally be capable of production controlling everything from top to bottom making everything flow without problems, price difficulties or any slowdowns to their economy due to lack of control over needed supplies of petroleum and raw materials as these would now be under EU control and Germany would have their production assured by which they could continue further expansion of the EU until they become that one world governance which has been so elusive.

 

Their documents themselves refer to global strategies. It claims so right in the title where it states theirs is a “Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy” and nothing less. Their contents list as below:
A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy: “Shared Vision, Common Action:
A Stronger Europe”

 

1. A Global Strategy to Promote our Citizens’ Interests
2. The Principles Guiding our External Action
3. The Priorities of our External Action
3.1 The Security of Our Union
3.2 State and Societal Resilience to our East and South
3.3 An Integrated Approach to Conflicts and Crises
3.4 Cooperative Regional Orders
3.5 Global Governance for the 21st Century
4. From Vision to Action

 

It is easy to see that theirs is an ambitious project and they are looking to expand their influence and they are willing to take any necessary steps and have already decided that they are to be the main world power and to slowly but inexorably swallow area after area starting with the petroleum supplies of the Middle East and the mines of central Africa and are willing to take on the nations of the Sahara Regions in order to spread into Central Africa and the access to raw materials such as iron and bauxite mines.

Add to this the resources, especially petroleum in the Middle East and Central Asia and one can see why the EU and Germany desire expanding their influence and control over these areas. This one simplistic map tells the story better than we could with a thousand words.

 

Petroleum Supply to Matching Petroleum Demands

Petroleum Supply to Matching Petroleum Demands

 

There really is not much one can add to what the EU released when their document became public, and we thank this revelation for putting to rest what the real intentions for their future and the future of the world the back room boys of the EU have in mind. Their delusions of grandeur and expectation to slowly expand their region of influence until they hold sufficient sway over production, raw materials and petroleum reserves that they will hold the controlling influence over virtually all manner of production and world economic health and indicators. Their claim that their intentions are for a global influence if not outright control is made amply evident but raises some serious questions. The first and most obvious question that comes to mind is exactly how does the EU plan on expending their control over these areas? We have some doubts as to the likelihood that these areas nations would be all that open to simply being subsumed by the EU no matter how generous the initial offers. We can be fairly assured that some nations such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey and Jordan would not be all that open to joining the EU and kowtowing to Germany’s heavy-handed running roughshod over other nations as they have with the less productive nations and even other near equals such as France and Britain, possibly one of the reasons that the British people felt the need to break with the EU, expecting other nations to pick up whatever slack these economies had as compared to the high productivity of the German heavy productivity. This pressure is less obvious for those nations outside the EU and have not received much coverage, but with Brexit the realities may slowly come to the fore and be revealed even faster should the EU, instead of executing expansion into new territories, begin losing member nations as others decide to head for the exits and try controlling their own borders, trade and currencies instead of being dictated from Brussels which sits more in service to Germany than anything else.

 

Then again, as most of the EU nations have abandoned their own currencies and have been using solely the Euro that the cost and burden of returning to their own currencies, as we have noted previously, would prove problematic and possibly so burdensome as to be prohibitive. The EU may be saved by a combination of prohibitive costs and challenges for individual nations returning to independence from the EU and inertia which would have leaders rather continue with what is already in place than challenge the independence from the EU which could be fraught with unforeseen challenges. Time will tell but the reasoning for why the EU desires to add these additional regions and the raw materials and petroleum reserves would be tempting under any circumstance. As for the feasibility, we would estimate they are somewhere around nil as the nations outside the EU, especially the Islamic nations, are not at all likely to take kindly to any pressures or attempts to compromise their independence by the EU which they already view as a colonialist aggressor. The funny reality is that Islam and the Arabs themselves have a far greater history of colonialism and their colonial pursuits are alive and well today across the MENA nations other than Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States which were the original Arab lands historically until the expansive thrusts which came soon after the advent of Islam and the Medina Quranic directives which spawned that expansive colonial expansion which they still retain to this day. Nobody can predict the future with any assurance of knowledge or prophesy but we will stand for now by our predictions that the EU should be more concerned with their own house before attempting to add additions to that home. Isn’t it just wonderful to live in interesting times just as a Chinese curse threatens?

The Real Reason for the European Union

 

Brexit is a great thing no matter what those experts on the left and right and in between are telling us. The entire political establishment is furious over the British vote against a unifying of Europe which eventually was to surrender to a unified world order. But that was not the reason the European Union was originally founded and nobody wants to talk about the real reasons behind the European Union (EU).

 

To figure out the real reasoning that formed the EU one needs to go back to the original concept and who were the nations pushing the hardest for an EU and who originally opposed it. The origins of the EU were formed and fashioned between Paris and Berlin, the two main engines to fuel the original EU. Britain was the original opposition and this was to be expected. What the EU was to be was the manner for Germany to finally conquer all of Europe this time instead of militarily to simply take over economically. The Euro was and remains most closely aligned with the German economy. It has little if anything to do with the more agrarian economies and was completely ignored until it became so dire that nobody could endure it any longer as the economic collapses of Spain and Greece and the near collapse of Italy and others signaled the depth the problem had reached. The EU did not take into its planning to any degree the needs of the former Soviet bloc Warsaw Pact nations when they entered the EU in near desperate need of massive infusions of funds to rebuild an infrastructure which was crumbling. Eventually some funding was made available and it was impressed as to how much Germany was sacrificing on their behalf. The assistance to Greece was another expression of German sacrifice and investment. Everything in the EU revolves around German economic power and its influence.

 

The EU really should have been named the Franco-Germanic Economic Empire. This has proven to be the preferred actions for the economic regulators in Brussels which ruled autocratically and approved actions unconscionable by any elected body elsewhere in the world. They overturned laws passed by elected parliaments and approved by the people but opposed by the controllers of this unelected hive mind of bureaucrats who decided they knew what was best more than the elected officials of member governments. The EU controlled trade relations and refused to allow member nations to make any trade deals or negotiate for mutual tariff relief with nations outside the EU. One example which will soon become very evident is now Britain will soon make deals with China, India, Brazil and others where they arrange to conduct free trade agreements, something Britain was barred from doing as a member of the EU because that would not be fair to other nations in the EU. This begs the question of why there was never an effort to have a free trade agreement between China and the EU. The reason is that Germany desired to have the advantage of free trade while blocking any competing nation entry into the German trade block which members of the EU were forced into by the bureaucrats who knew who paid their salaries and supported the main functions of the EU and would do anything and everything demanded to protect German trade relations and to increase the German trade advantage in Europe. With the Euro pegged to the German economy it further gave an advantage to German goods and services as the money used for trade was pegged to their goods and others who may have not quite matched German production paid the price.

 

It is kind of interesting that the EU headquarters was a stone’s throw from both Paris and Berlin, sitting in Brussels, Belgium which is sandwiched between Germany and France and has a history with both. That most nations in the EU were fully vested was in a manner their surrender to the economic drivers of the EU. The fact that the British also were a powerful economic nation, that their acceptance of the EU was conditional, and they kept their currency, the Pound Sterling, independent from the Euro and always available should things turn badly for the EU and Euro crash in value, Britain could fall back on their natural currency to continue to trade and deal with the rest of the world. That fall back will facilitate their departure making it all the easier. Still there are a number of hurdles which could still prevent Brexit from becoming a reality despite the vote by the people. The entire idea could still be presented to the parliament and they could decide that remaining in the EU is the wiser course and the Prime Minister, either Cameron or whoever replaces him after the elections could agree with the Parliament and that would be the end of Brexit so to speak. There is an even bet that the leaving of the EU could be brought before the Parliament as there are many politicians willing to oppose the popular vote and risk their, or enhance depending on their region and its electorate, seat in the coming elections.

 

Pound Sterling

Pound Sterling

 

One can bet that the many areas of Britain will vote their next election along the line of for or against Brexit and that Brexit will be the defining item in the minds of the people. The representatives of the London area and other major metropolises where the voters favored remaining in the EU will elect their parliament members accordingly. The more rural and suburban areas, where the people are somewhat more self-reliant, will vote for representatives who support independence from the EU, as they voted quite overwhelmingly, to the great surprise of almost every pollster and many of those predicting the failure of the Brexit proposition, to politely depart the EU. We are glad we supported Brexit for our British friends as we almost always will fall on the side of independence from bureaucratic dictatorial bodies, a.k.a. the European Union. Our best wishes to the British and we hope that others find their way clear of the overreaching arms of the Brussels Bureaucracy. Perhaps Brussels Bureaucracy, or the Double B, should have been the proper name for the EU as BB is even more simple an abbreviation and rolls off the tongue so much easier. Try it, BB or EU, EU sounds too close to something yucky, you know, ‘ew’ as an expression to an awful smell, rhymes with PU. Britain will hopefully be back dependent solely on the Pound Sterling and will soon arrange free trade with the China, Brazil, India and even United States, after President Obama exits office as he does not particularly like Britain as proven when he discarded the bust of Winston Churchill back to Britain as President Obama believes that the man who saved the world from Hitler was a despicable human being. If the British are seeking an honored place for that particular sculpture, we would love to give it a place of honor and show it off to our many British friends here in our little corner of the world. E-mail us if you are interested as we would be honored to have such a prized possession. To be able to say that we are hosting the bust of Winston Churchill that President Obama so ingloriously returned to Britain as a slap in the face and insult would make us prouder than a peacock in full plumage.
