Despite their high-minded flowery talk, Europe’s elitist leaders are screwing western civilization again. As California is considered by progressives to be a window to the future of the United States, Europe is a window to the coming western world. They’re considered by many to be leaders in contemporary thought, but their results only paint a dismal portait of the future.
While hellbent on dragging the globe into their starry-eyed world of peace and equality, neither Californian nor European elites are interested in considering the views of those who disagree. Everyone is expected to go along to get along.
Their persistent attempts to display wisdom and virtue have gone beyond common sense and common cause to requiring a common acceptance of thought and process. These “loving” leaders have a massive guilt complex, and they feel a constant need to prove their goodness. Just don’t dare to ask them why.
Everyone is expected to accept their grand plans, or risk being demeaned, if not persecuted. Welcome to the brave new world of the 21st century. These brilliant “new” ideas seem hauntingly familiar. It’s like it’s all happened before…because it has…many times. And always with bad results.
If you thought freedom would continue to blossom into this new millennium, it’s time to come to grips with reality. There are powerful people throughout western governments who beg to differ with the very concept of liberty, and billions of hapless sheep are willing to accept their edicts in exchange for an empty promise of equality and security.
George Washington predicted it all, when he said this:
“Some day, following the example of the United States of America, there will be a United States of Europe.”
But there was no guarantee that Europe would learn the lessons of America’s success. In his wisdom, he also said this: “It is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company.”
The elitist European Union, as it currently exists and is trending, is bad company.
Let’s resist the impulse to jump on any bandwagon just because it’s popular. What is commonly followed is not special, but only appealing and easy. Let’s instead protect and revere what is precious. Because, once liberty is lost, it may well be impossible to recapture.
