David Stockman’s “Contra Corner” Pointed to an article by Frederick Forsyth in the Express Newspaper in which he describes how the EU was set up after World War II, principally by the Frenchman Jean Monnet. Cutting to the chase, Monnet believed
In the 1930s democracy had failed. In Germany, Italy and elsewhere desperate people had flocked to the demagogues who promised full bellies and a job in exchange for marching, chanting columns. So democracy must go. It could not be the governmental system of the new Utopia. It was not fit to be. (He was already president of the Action Committee for the Superstate, his official title. There is nothing new about the word superstate).
Instead there would be a new system: government by an enlightened elite of bureaucrats. The hoi polloi (you and me) were simply too dim, too emotional, too uneducated to be safely allowed to choose their governments. It never occurred to him to devise a way to strengthen and fortify democracy to ensure that what happened in Italy and Germany in the 1920s and 1930s could not happen again. No, democracy was unsafe and had to be replaced. (This is not propaganda, he wrote it all down).
He faced one last stigma as he sought the support of the six who would become the kernel of his dream: Germany (still ruined by war), France (fighting dismal colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria), Italy in her usual chaos, Holland, Belgium and tiny Luxembourg.
How could the various peoples ever be persuaded to hand over their countries from democracy to oligarchy, the government of the elite? Let me quote from what he wrote: “Europe’s nations should be guided towards the Super-state without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.“
There’s another very politically incorrect view and it essentially involves the Bolsheviks wanting to extend their communist state soon after WWI by fomenting civil strife in Europe. They were initially successful but failed. According to Victor Suvorov Stalin decided to engineer WWII during which he hoped to then invade the rest of Europe; The Germans stalled that plan in 1941. Eventually the USSR and it’s allies conquered Germany and divvied up Europe.
Since bloody revolution more or less failed to convert Europe and the West to communism, another tactic seems to have been put in place. Infiltrate all the West’s institutions and convert the West by stealth and deception. This has by and large been achieved. Then the wall came down and the rest is history.
Welcome to the Brave New World.
Update: From the Jewish web site Haaretz.com
The document, from October 1939, consists of three pages in English that purportedly reflect a dialogue in Moscow between a delegation from Czechoslovakia and a senior Soviet Foreign Ministry official. The Czechs tried to find out why the U.S.S.R. had signed the nonaggression treaty with Nazi Germany, the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of August 1939. A few days later the Germans invaded Poland, and World War II began.
The Soviet official, Alexandrov by name, explained to the Czech delegation that had the Soviet Union signed an agreement with the West, Hitler would not have dared to launch a war, and without that war there would have been no possibility of imposing communism in Europe. He also listed the benefits to the Soviet Union of the pact with Nazi Germany, and of the war.
