A Big Win for Democracy
The United Kingdom has recently left the European Union. Regardless of one's views on this, it is important to look at the 'big picture'.
When the then Prime Minister, David Cameron announced that there would a be a referendum on whether the UK should remain in the EU or leave, he and his government did everything they could to influence the people of the UK to remain in the EU. Much to their astonishment, the vote went against them and the British people voted to leave the EU, albeit by a fairly small majority (June 2016). The person chosen to lead us out of the EU was the new Prime Minister, Theresa May. As a staunch supporter of the EU she did everything she could to keep the UK in the EU, a total conflict of interests, As such, she was completely the wrong person to lead us out of the EU and the deal she negotiated with the EU was designed to keep us as close to the EU as possible – a travesty of democracy.
Much to her surprise when she decided to hold a general election, she lost a huge number of seats in the House of Commons purely and simply because people could 'see through' her deal with the EU and wanted nothing to do with it. The result of this loss was that her deal with the EU was repeatedly rejected by parliament despite the best efforts of many of the politicians who wanted us to stay in the EU.
Theresa May resigned as Prime Minister and Boris Johnson took over her role and thereby the leadership of the Conservative party but was forced into a position of stalemate against all those politicians who had no respect at all for democracy and wanted to stay in the EU. Boris Johnson realised that the only way out of this impasse was to hold a general election which he won with a landslide victory indicating once again that the people of the UK really did want to leave the EU – it was almost like another referendum in the result it produced except that there was an even greater majority who voted to leave the EU than the original referendum – except this was in counting seats in parliament instead of votes to leave or remain in the EU.
Of course, one should also mention that the Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, had lost all credibility, as well as popularity with the electorate and this certainly assisted Boris Johnson. Another factor in the result of the general election was the popularity of Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party who made many of his candidates step down in order to assist Boris Johnson in getting elected, knowing full well that the Brexit Party couldn't obtain enough seats in the House of Commons to win the election outright. Nigel Farage had set himself the task of getting the UK out of the EU; not becoming Prime Minister. His objective has now been achieved and he has left the political arena – job done.
As a result of holding a considerable majority of the seats in the House of Commons, Boris Johnson, with his Conservative Party, was able to push through the bill that extricated the UK from the EU.
The above is a brief summary of events for those who aren't aware of them. Now let's have a look at the 'big picture' once more – on an even bigger scale.
First, there is the fact that democracy has been seen to survive, despite massive opposition from those who wanted the UK to remain in the EU. Had the UK remained in the EU following the result of the referendum (to leave the EU), democracy in the UK would have been destroyed. The UK would have been, in effect, seen to be run by a governing dictatorship which, in a worst-case scenario, could have brought about a civil war.
Taking this one step further, the influential people who really shape our world, such as those in the Bilderberg Group and other secret societies, have been striving since the end of World War One to bring about a 'World Government'. In fact, the concept of a World Government goes back much further, to 1795 in particular, when Immanuel Kant wrote an essay entitled: Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch. There are other records of similar philosophies dating back even further. It should be remembered that these groups of powerful people are those who frequently put in place certain leaders around the world and have a massive influence over many politicians. Many leaders of the UK, as well as our Royal Family, are, or have been, either members of, or have attended meetings of, the Bilderberg Group and have failed to divulge what was said at those meetings – completely against the rules of parliament (in the case of MPs).
One has only to remember that there was a League of Nations formed in 1920, following the devastation of this 'war to end all wars' to maintain peace in the world; something they completely failed to achieve. Since then, this has evolved into the United Nations which was founded at the end of World War Two - established to become the headquarters of the world government. If you read the UN Charter (https://www.un.org/en/sections/un-charter/chapter-i/index.html you will see what I mean (reading just a little between the lines).
The main objective of a World Government (often referred to as the New World Order) is to enslave the people of the world and control them from one central government. There would be no longer any form of democracy permitted and everyone would be subjugated under one group of leaders. There would be no longer any national identity or freedom of choice. People would be forced to do what they were told. An example of this has already been shown in the reign of terror brought about by the dictatorship of Joseph Stalin. Anyone who has any doubt about this should read books such as Leningrad - Siege and Symphony by Brian Moynahan and Stalingrad by Anthony Beevor. Other informative books about modern day politics are those written by Noam Chomsky and Dinesh De'Souza.
Before moving on, we need to take a brief look at the past:
In 1952, the European Parliament was formed and was then called the 'Common Assembly'. At this time, it did not have any power, it was only asked to comment on laws made by the 'European Coal and Steel Community'. This parliament is now the legislative branch of the European Union and, with the Council of the European Union, it adopts European legislation, normally on a proposal from the European Commission. The European Parliament shares power over the EU budget and legislation with the Council of the European Union (EU governments), plays a key role in electing the President of the European Commission and makes sure other EU institutions are working democratically (Ed: really? What it really means is that it checks to make sure everyone is toeing the line and obeying the rules set in Brussels).
The European Economic Community was formed in 1957 which then became the European Union in 1993. The European Economic Community aimed to bring about economic integration among its member states. It was created by the Treaty of Rome of 1957. When the European Union was formed in 1993, the EEC was incorporated and renamed the European Community.
The European Commission was formed in 1958. This is the executive branch of the European Union that proposes legislation, implements decisions, maintains the EU treaties and manages the routine business matters of the EU.
When the UK first joined Europe in 1973, supported by the only other national referendum in UK history, in 1975, (67 % in favour – refer to URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1975_United_Kingdom_European_Communities_membership_referendum for more information) it was in the form of the Common Market, otherwise known as the European Economic Community which tells one all one needs to know.
This way of trading eventually evolved into the European Union (1993), sharing power with the European Parliament. The reasoning behind this is that it is easier to control a large number of people (about 450 million in Europe) from one central government, with one set of laws rather than having a large number (27, now 26) of national governments each with their own laws. This is very much modelled along the same lines as the United States of America – we were getting close to being integrated into a United States of Europe.
The EU has already instigated the European Central Bank (the first step towards creating the ECB was the decision, taken in 1988, to build an Economic and Monetary Union: free capital movements within Europe, a common monetary authority and a single monetary policy across the euro area countries – refer to URL: https://www.ecb.europa.eu/ecb/history/html/index.en.html) and a common currency, the Euro, and imposed this on many European countries – much to the economic detriment of many of them, including Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy and Ireland. Fortunately, the UK decided to stand against this and we still have our own currency which has made leaving the EU much easier.
The EU is now engaged in trying to form a European military force. How scary is that? Haven't we seen enough conflict in Europe over the last 100 years or so to last forever? It's bad enough to have NATO, originally formed as a defensive mechanism but now turned into an attacking force as has been the case in, amongst others, Serbia, Yugoslavia and even Libya, a country which had nothing to do with Europe. NATO is also coming close (in its military exercises) to banging on the door of Russia who is not impressed with this provocation. I dread to think what will happen once a European military force has been formed. Are we setting the stage for another European or World War?
The British people, who have always resisted subjugation with a passion, have now started their climb back to independence and national identity. Having seen the UK achieve this step forward, I am sure other countries will follow our lead as subjugation into slavery by an anonymous remote government is not what the people of Europe need, let alone the whole population of the world, many of whom are already subjugated by powerful, and paranoid, dictators or dictatorial governments. However, there will be dangers along the way, one of which is to kowtow to the USA in every way, as we have often done in the past.
Standing alone is something that the UK has always been known for being able to do successfully, often against might forces. Of course, it might concern, or even worry some of the younger generation who have never known life outside the EU, but for many older folks who have lived life outside the EU, leaving the EU is an opportunity in so many ways, not least to be able to trade with other countries but also in restoring our own ideals, laws and identity which have in many ways been followed by other nations but were becoming enmeshed with the slavery of European politics that is the European Union.
