Brexit, Britain, & A Renewed Commonwealth: Yes, But What’s The…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 5, 2017

I received two articles this week having to do with Great Britain and the Commonwealth that caught my attention. The first from Ms. K.M., and the second from Mr. S.D. Before we get to those, however, I want to remind people of a bit of high octane speculation that I began to advance shortly before the BREXIT referendum in the United Kingdom. During the campaign prior to that referendum, I observed a number of things that convinced me that there was a certain segment of the British oligarchy that was profoundly unhappy with two things: (1) the growing bureaucratic tyranny of the Brussels-Berlin E.U., and its corollary, discontent in certain segments of the British population – that part of the population with a shred of sanity left – over the growing Islamicization of their country; and, (2) the growing dissatisfaction with the “unipolar world” of Mr. Globaloney. There were, I argued, several signals that indicated “something was afoot” behind the scenes in the British deep state or oligarchy, and chief among these things were three indicators – at least to me and a few others – that the polls prior to BREXIT, which showed the “remain” forces leading – might have been deliberately concocted. By my hack-from-South Dakota lights, there were three signals that spoke very loudly:

(1) The state visit of Mr. Xi Jinping to that nation;

(2) Great Britain’s entry as a board member to the Chinese Asia Infrastructure Development Bank, a move not joined by only two nations, the USA and Japan; and,

(3) The dinner at the Palace with Queen Elizabeth II and then Prime Minister David Cameron’s Vice Premier, during which, according to the British tabloids, the Queen expressed the Royal Displeasure at the way things were proceeding with the European Union.  Of course, interpreting stories coming from the Crown is always hazardous, since British monarchs have, in the last two centuries, exercised their very real and considerable power very quietly. The Crown speaks its own special variety of the “dialect of power” that Vatican watches know as “romanita“.  In this case, the Queen expressed that Royal Displeasure in the form of asking the Vice Premier (so the story went) to name three benefits Britain accrued from membership in the E.U.  It could therefore be argued that Her Majesty was simply asking questions, not expressing “the Royal Displeasure.” But in the context of the other two events named above,  it seemed likely to me at the time. In terms of the logic of the situation, one can perhaps understand why, for from the royal point of view, the income of the civil list might conceivably be a target for the Brussels bureaucrats, M. Jean-Claude Juncker, faithful minion and lackey to Mad Madam Merkel.

The BREXIT happened, and I argued that the next step for Great Britain – a logical and natural one – would be to revive the soft-power culture card of the British Commonwealth. That, indeed, appears to be happening, for as readers of this website are aware, Britain has extended the idea of making the United States an associate member, and the Trump Administration appears to be listening.

From the geopolitical point of view, the move makes sense, for India, a principal member of the BRICSA bloc (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), would be a crack in the emerging Eurasian dike, and with British membership in China’s Asia Infrastructure Bank, Britain has carefully positioned itself as a go-between between the West and that bloc, and that during a time when Brazil’s participation has been severely diminished due to the overthrow of Dilma Rouseff as that nation’s president.

Now there’s this confirmation in the article shared by Ms. K.M.:

A Future of the English-Speaking People

Notably the article appeared in the US magazine Foreign Affairs, the darling of the Council on Foreign Relations, long known to be the “official organ” of the Rockefailure interests, as the Economist is to that of the Rottenchilds. This article, notably, stresses the very same soft power card:

Legal systems of Common Law, a relentless defense of democratic principles, English as first language, common business practices, and traditional support for free trade are the glue that holds together countries that are geographically so distant. Cultural ties lower transaction costs between countries and foster trust. No wonder that, in making foreign direct investments, the United States shows a strong preference for Anglo-Saxon countries, with about 23 percent of total American foreign direct investment going to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

In finance, technology, science, and trade, the Anglosphere already plays a dominant role, albeit in an informal way. But there are also formal means of cooperation, including the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing group; the Air and Space Interoperability Council, which aims to make members’ defense systems interoperable; and the Rhodes Scholarship, which brings students from around the world to study at Oxford University. More recently, New Zealand has offered to send London its top trade negotiators to augment the British civil service as it prepares to renegotiate hundreds of trade agreements with the rest of the world. And a recent poll found overwhelming support within Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom for granting nationals reciprocal rights to live and work freely among the four countries.

And notably, the CFR article also views the Commonwealth-Anglo-Sphere “revival” in terms very different from the top-down centralizing and federalizing experiment of the E.U. as a model for a multi-polar world, and it does so without nary a peep of protest, indicating that at least certain factions within Mr. Globaloney’s house realize that a different tack is needed from the vowel-impaired unipolar American empire visions of Mr. Zbgnw Brzznsk:

To be sure, the Anglosphere would never be a European Union among English-speaking nations. After all, it would be the by-product of a time when states seek to regain full sovereignty, cooperating when interests coincide but competing when they diverge. The institutions of the Anglosphere would be open and not exclusive, allowing each nation to pursue its regional goals independently. So, for instance, Australia would be free to work on trade relationships with its Asian partners after Trump has dismissed the Trans Pacific Partnership. London, meanwhile, would be free to entertain post-exit relations with Europe.

The article goes on to say that the UK and US will retain NATO as their preferred alliance structure. The unspoken factor here is not Russia; it’s Germany, for NATO serves – to borrow the observations of Mr. Brzznsk – as much as a check on potential German re-militarization as it does on ostensible Russian ambitions. My prediction? Germany will be forced to remilitarize rather heavily, regardless of what NATO does or does not do, and there will thus be pressure on NATO’s structure to be “revised.”

But any revival of the Commonwealth, in the form I and now the CFR article has suggested, will require a “project” sufficiently large to bring together the Commonwealth. And for that, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, In Spain, They’re Arresting Banksters

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 28, 2017

Typically, according to “Great Power” theory, Spain lost its status as a Great Power in the Napoleonic era, and hence, it gets ignored… too much, in my opinion. The reason? Spain may have fallen on hard times from the end of the Napoleonic era up through the Spanish Civil War and the victory of Franco, but under Franco it regained much of its lost economic clout and, despite grievous setbacks in recent years, in 2016 was the 10th largest world economy by Gross Domestic Product, and the fifth largest in the European Union, behind Germany, the U.K., France, and Italy, and just slightly ahead of the Netherlands. But Spain, in a manner rather similar to Great Britain, does have an enormous soft-power card, due to the enormous influence it has had historically on the development of western culture. From the Philippines to Central and South America, Spanish culture became the dominant influence. During World War Two Franco carefully maneuvered, in spite of enormous pressure to join the Axis, to keep Spain neutral, playing the soft power card quite effectively in this effort, reminding the Axis powers that any invasion of Spain would be met with stiff resistance, and sever any useful ties the Axis had, via Spain, with the rest of the Latin world and most importantly, with their considerable investments in South America. In return, Franco bought Spain’s neutrality by sending a “volunteer” infantry division, the “Blue” division, to fight with the Axis in the Soviet Union, where it distinguished itself in combat operations in and around Leningrad.

So when a major economy of the West decides to start arresting banksters, I sit up and take notice (thanks to Mr. B.H. for sharing this article):

Spain Follows Iceland As Mass Arrests Of Top Bankers Begin

Note how this article by Jacky Murphy begins:

Spain’s Supreme court last year ruled that there was “serious inaccuracies” about listing led investors to back Bankia in error, as a result the bank has paid out millions of Euros in compensation.
If one translates this, what the Spanish Supreme Court is really saying is that Bankia, a consortium built from other failed banks(!), failed to apprise investors of serious exposure and risk; in short, it committed major material omissions of fact. This in and of itself is highly significant, but its import takes on a more sinister aspect when one connects it to the last paragraph in the article:
“The court is questioning why they allowed Bankia to sell shares in an initial public offering in 2011, less than a year before Bankia’s portfolio of bad mortgage loans forced the government to seize control of it. It said there was evidence the regulators had ‘full and thorough knowledge’ of Bankia’s plight. After its nationalisation, it went on to report a €19.2bn ($24.7bn) loss for 2012, the largest in Spanish corporate history.” (Emphasis added)
Now, many people may recall that Spain did indeed embark on an orgy of real estate projects during the pre-2008 boom, and, like other countries, when the housing bubble collapsed, the problems began. Additionally, while not often mentioned in connection to the refugee crisis, the Spanish government, like others, fell victim to the the multicultural virus and began importing refugees to such an extent that it dramatically effected the ability of native Spaniard youth to gain jobs; consequently unemployment rose dramatically, and with it, calls for secession from Madrid in various regions, most notably Catalonia. One reader of this website, located in Spain, referred years ago to the whole process of being one of remaking Spain into “Spanistan.” And though we don’t hear of Spain in this connection as often as we do of the Netherlands, France, Germany or Italy, or for that matter Great Britain or the USA, there has been a growing backlash against these policies among Spaniards.
What caught my eye here, however, was the admission that Bankia’s and indeed Spain’s economic woes were due to the same cause as elsewhere: “bad mortgage loans.” That, as one might imagine, caught my eye because I strongly suspect there is much more going on…

Brexit & Revitalization The Common Wealth: The USA As Associate Member?

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 27, 2017

In the aftermath of the BREXIT vote, I began to argue in blogs and in various interviews, that the next step geopolitically for Great Britain would be to play the soft power card, in the form of revivifying the British Commonwealth of nations. My reasons for thinking this was in the cards were various, and spread out over several  blogs and interviews. Here were some of those reasons: (1) elements of the British deep state, including apparently the Queen herself, were increasingly disappointed not only with the EU and the loss of national sovereignty, but with the unipolar and multicultural (read, Gramscian Marxist) direction things were going; (2) a significant segment of the British population was fed up with the growing Islamicization of Britain; and (3) Britain was pursuing, independently of the EU, it’s own relationship and trading policy with China, hosting the state visit of Mr. Xi Jinping to that country, and joining, as a member of the board, China’s Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank. Finally, (4) Britain continued to be alarmed at the growing power and influence of Russia, in particular Russia speaking openly about the West abandoning its core cultural principles and appealing directly to those elements in the West with decidedly traditional cultural sympathies. Russia was playing the soft power card, and playing it well.

In this context, I was arguing that the United Kingdom had certain unique advantages – all of them cultural – that the European Union, firmly under Germany’s thumb, did not: Britain had dramatically influenced the expansion of an English-speaking culture, with English institutions, concepts of jurisprudence, and so on, over a vast area of the globe. Britain could, I argued, if it played its cards right, play that soft power card and create an immense bloc of economic and cultural interests. But this would be impossible under the aegis of the globaloney-multicultural-unipolar philosophy. The way to do this would be to stress the cultural heritage and institutions, and the British Commonwealth was ready-to-hand.

This last week, a number of regular readers of this website, particularly in the United Kingdom, shared an article which appears to confirm this analysis and prediction, and moreover, to do so in a very astonishing way:

USA could be ‘associate member’ of Commonwealth to reap rewards from forgotten ‘treasure

While this article is fairly short, the first four paragraphs contain a number of bombshells that appear to support my arguments from months ago, rather substantially:

The United States could eventually become an “associate member” of the Commonwealth, according to plans being drawn up by the Royal Commonwealth Society.

The move, which is said to have the backing of the Queen, is believed to have come about because of US President Donald Trump’s love of Britain and the Royal Family.

With the UK making plans to leave the European Union (EU) officials are keen to build up international relations through the Commonwealth in an number of areas, including trade.

Director of the Royal Commonwealth Society Michael Lake told The Telegraph: “The UK rather left this treasure in the attic, and forgot about it because people were so glued to Brussels.” (Emphasis added)

I cannot help but think that since this plan “is said to have the backing of the Queen”, that it may have been in the works for some time, since we all recall the story from last year, prior to the BREXIT referendum, that the Queen had invited Mr. Cameron’s vice-premier to the palace for tea and dinner, during which the Queen allegedly asked him is he could name three incontestable benefits Britain was reaping from the EU. The message was clear: the Queen was casting a skeptical eye on the whole business.

There was another wrinkle that seldom…

All Eyes On France? Behind The Scenes…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 22, 2017

For some time I’ve been urging that the current political-cultural climate should be viewed “whole”, and that we’re witnessing an historical arc of unprecedented uniqueness. We are, I’ve been urging, in one of those periodic paradigm shifts that seems to happen about once every five hundred years, the last one being the Reformation, Counter-Reformation, the Thirty Years’ War, and the Peace of Westphalia, which basically cemented our modern laissez faire attitude to religion and the secular state. But this current change, I’ve been urging, is unlike any other in prior human history, and hence has no real precedents. It’s being driven by unprecedented technological change and development which in turn is rendering more and more human labor productivity moot, and that in turn impacts the financial system and model under which we currently operate moot. German finance minister Wolfgang Schaueble has stated that the debt growth model is over. There is no way forward, he argues, that is not a reform. Reading between the lines a bit, what Herr Schaueble is actually saying is that there is no way out of the current mess that does not involve increase in equity finance, in production, and hence, in human productivity.

As a component of all this, I’ve also been arguing that the current political cycle in the west, which has seen historic elections in the United Kingdom with the BREXIT referendum and more recently the overwhelming parliamentary vote to move forward with leaving the E.U., with the recent American presidential election cycle, and with the upcoming national elections in France, the Netherlands, and Germany, must also be viewed whole. In my opinion, we’ve been witnessing “deep state factional revolts” against the prevailing globaloney neo-con neo-lib agendas that have formulated domestic and foreign policy in these nations. Recall, for example, the strange story from last year of Queen Elizabeth inviting the British vice-premier to the palace for dinner and tea, during which she expressed, in the form of questions, reservations about the whole E.U. experiment. Then BREXIT happened, and Cameron and said vice premier were gone.

With the growing opposition to the immigration and refugee policies of Brussels and Berlin, I’ve also been urging that the upcoming votes in France, the Netherlands, and Germany will be of similar cultural and historical importance, and for the moment, France, and the candidacy for the presidency of Marine Le Pen, is front and center, and for several reasons. Not the least of these reasons involves the ability of private groups not only to lobby for domestic policy changes but to pursue a variety of censorship practices and other “active measures” to affect cultural change. So, as you ponder the upcoming French elections, consider these stories. The first was shared by Mr. V.T.:

Soros Funds Google to Stop Populist Le Pen

http://www.infowars.com/soros-funds-google-to-stop-populist-le-pen/embed/#?secret=C1pxEnIKPw

Well, we’ve seen similar attempts to censor news by altering search engine algorithms before. Same tactic, same agenda, only this time, it’s Ms. Le Pen in the cross hairs. Recently Wikileaks divulged the CIA’s attempts to gain information on French candidates during their 2012 election, presumably for the purpose of influencing the outcome:

Wikileaks Exposes CIA Involvement In French 2012 Presidential Election

Clearly, nationalist Le Pen would not be at the top of the list of “desirable outcomes,” neither in 2012, and especially now with the EU in tatters from Mad Madame Merkel’s immigration policies. Bluntly put, without France, there is no E.U. And Ms. Le Pen has been advancing the idea of a FREXIT.

The real focus of my concern today is really these hidden influences – particularly from so-called non-government organizations like the various foundations of Darth Soros – on domestic and foreign policy, an influence Ms. Le Pen is almost certain to mention and exploit, for the tide is turning, as this article shared by Mr. V.T. also points out:

Lawmakers probe US funding for Soros groups, left-wing causes in Europe

Consider the opening paragraphs in this regard:

Report alleges George Soros is meddling in foreign affairs

George Soros’ alleged meddling in European politics has caught the attention of Congress.

Concerns about Soros’ involvement most recently were raised by the Hungarian prime minister, who last week lashed out at the Soros “empire” and accused it of deploying “tons of money and international heavy artillery.”

But days earlier, Republican lawmakers in Washington started asking questions about whether U.S. tax dollars also were being used to fund Soros projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia.

Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily — an Obama appointee — demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

A few days ago I blogged about the necessity for another “Reece” committee to investigate such foundation activity. It appears, in effect, that this is a possibility waiting in the wings. But the implications are indeed dire for Mr. Globaloney, for once such an investigation is underway, similar activities of private citizens meeting to make policy might come under scrutiny… for example, the Bilderberg group.

The problem confronting those interests now is the fact that such investigations are under way already: Frau Merkel faces parliamentary committees in the Bundestag, and if Ms. Le Pen is elected or even has a strong showing and manages to gain seats in the French national assembly, one can expect similar investigations to occur in France, and with all the power of the French bureaucracy, this could indeed be quite revealing. It would be quite a stretch of the imagination to believe that the French DST was not fully apprised of his activities. In Macedonia and Hungary, protests over his activities are under way, and Hungary is investigating. And Hungary, let us recall, has “historical” connections to Russia and to Russian intelligence, which similarly would have its own thick “Soros dossier.”

If it happens, then let’s hope those committees in various countries will “compare notes.” That’s probably what really has Darth Soros, Mr. Globaloney par excellence, and his ilk, worried. And that’s probably why they will spare no effort to keep Ms. Le Pen out of the Elyse Palace.

See you on the flip side…

Merkel: No Plans Exist For German Nuclear Weapons

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 16, 2017

This particular article was right at the top of the list this past week of articles that people sent in. And it’s worth having a few “record corrections” here. Frau Merkel, it seems, has been rather busy. In short, spokesmen for the Chancellorin have been forced to deny that there are no plans for Germany to acquire nuclear weapons as a component of the “all European army” it has been pushing for. Here’s two versions of the story, one from our friends at Zero Hedge, and the other from the London Times:

Merkel Forced To Deny Plans For European Nuclear Superpower

Merkel forced to deny Germany planning to lead a European nuclear superpower

I scarcely know where to begin on this one, for the disingenuousness of the story – not from the media reporting it, but rather from the track record of Germany since the end of the Second World War – is there for all to see if one knows where to look. William Manchester, in his well-known book, The Arms of Krupp, records that the famous German armaments firm and cannon-maker had completed a functioning reactor in a secret installation in Julich, near the Dutch border, by the end of the 1950s. In that book he records an interview with one of the scientists working at the installation, who rather sheepishly admitted that Germany was closing the entire nuclear fuel cycle. By the 1960s, it had. Then, in 1978, The New York Times Books published an important but regrettably overlooked book by Barbara Rogers and Zdenek Cervenka, titled The Nuclear Axis: The Secret Collaboration Between West Germany and South Africa, a book which I reviewed in my book The Third Way: The Nazi International, European Union, and Corporate Fascism. Rogers and Cervenka make a convincing case that the secret power behind South Africa’s and even Israel’s bomb was West Germany.

As I also noted in my book, Germany played a crucial role during the 1970s and 80s, in Iran’s acquisition of nuclear technologies, including those of isotope enrichment, forming the foundations for Iran’s present nuclear capabilities. It need not be mentioned, of course, that Frau Merkel’s government was instrumental in brokering the controversial deal between Iran and the Obama Administration. Well, of course they were! Iran is a major German trading partner, and some of that trade historically includes… well, you know.

I noted something else in The Third Way, namely, that the pro-Russian website, Global Research, ran an article by Canadian professor Michael Chossudovsky titled “Belgium of Iran, where’s the Nuclear Threat? Europe’s Five Undeclared Nuclear Weapons states” (see http://www.globalresearch.ca/europe-s-five-undeclared-nuclear-weapons-states/17550. See also my The Third Way, pp. 109-111) In that article, Professor Chossudovsky points out an uncomfortable truth:

While Germany is not categorized officially as a nuclear power, it produces nuclear warheads for the French Navy. It stockpiles nuclear warheads (made in America) and it has the capabilities of delivering nuclear weapons. Moreover, The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company – EADS, a Franco-German-Spanish joint venture, controlled by Deutsche Aerospace and the powerful Daimler Group is Europe’s second largest military producer, supplying France’s M51 nuclear missile.

Germany imports and deploys nuclear warheads from the U.S. It also produced nuclear warheads which are exported to France. Yet it is classified as a non-nuclear state. (The Third Way, p. 110, citing the Global Research website article.)

Now, in case all this technicality is a little too obscure, I also pointed out in the Third Way that France’s M51 missile, which is produced by a Franco-German-Spanish company, which in turn is controlled by Deutsche Aerospace and the Daimler Group, is a submarine launched intercontinental ballistic missile with mirved warheads (which are also produced by Germany) in the 200-300 kiloton range(so we’re told), which means those warheads are strategic warheads, and probably either boosted fission devices or full-up (but small) hydrogen bombs. In short, not only has the infrastructure of a trans-European nuclear deterrent long been in place, organized around the French force de frappe, that organization conveniently allows Germany to dodge the classification as a thermonuclear power (“See? We’re selling all this to the French… we’re not buying it ourselves”), it also conveniently makes France the target of opportunity should things ever actually go “hot.” But any way one slices it, if Mr. Chossudovsky’s revelations are anywhere close to the truth, then the reality is, like it or not, Germany already is a de facto thermonuclear power. This explains a lot, geopolitically, and in point of fact, when one considers Professor Chossudovsky’s article in the context of the Rogers-Cervenka research from the late 1970s, it’s clear that infrastructure has been in place for a very long time. In short, their research corroborates Chossodovsy’s allegations.

What does all this mean? Well, in terms of Frau Merkel’s “denials” and “reassurances”, it means simply that she’s lying. But I suspect most people already suspected that. More importantly, it means that should the EU break apart, then that whole infrastructure will have to come out into the open, and that the pressures on Germany to openly rearm to ensure the security of Eastern Europe – as the Times article suggests – will be enormous. Germany and France will continue to collaborate militarily, and announce “changes” to that collaboration to reflect “new European realities.” One might even go so far as to say that the French will allow the Germans to test their own thermonuclear warheads in the French test sites in the Pacific just to make it all “official”.

Then again, why bother with any tests? After all, the French have already tested those German SLBMs and warheads… OTRAG, anyone?

…and then there’s Japan…

To The People Of Europe Who Still Believe In Freedom

individuality

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…
