The MacDonaldization of words forces many to lay that reason asleep which disturbs their gayety. Among recent new entries is ‘Brexit’, a word suitable to a speaking-club made of millions, where most half-hear what, if they heard the whole, they would but half-understand.
Furthermore, some words in time are debased by repetition, and can no longer be heard without an involuntary sense of annoyance. Hence I will spare my twenty-five readers further comments on how England will work-out her separation from the European Union. Official news suggests that about half of the citizenry is filled with all that sparkles in the eye of hope, while the other sees but penury ahead and thickens the gloom of one another.
Being a matter of contest, the success of one party implies the defeat of the other, and at least half the transaction will terminate in misery.
Instead I will deal with two separate events in another European country, a historic Italian chocolate factory being moved to Turkey, and the saga of an Italian truck driver – both edifying examples of the benefits of the European Union and of globalization at large.
To start, while being conscious that dainty bits make rich the ribs but bankrupt quite the wits, I confess to liking chocolate. On mountain-walks or bike-rides I rate it well above any ‘energy-bar’, another recent entry in the MacDonaldized English dictionary.
As a brief aside, in his essay “In Praise of Idleness”, Bertrand Russell presents an argument in support of useless knowledge and says that he enjoyed peaches and apricots more since he learned that they were first cultivated in China in the early days of Han Dynasty, and that the word ‘apricot’ is derived from the same Latin source as the word ‘precocious’, because the apricot ripens early; and that the A at the beginning was added by mistake, owing to a false etymology.
In the same spirit… the chocolate factory in question is (was) dear to my heart for being old, historic and located in a small town not far from where I was born – besides being famous worldwide for a special brand of chocolates.
The town is Novi Ligure, mostly unknown outside Italy. Its ancient Latin name was Curtis Nova (New Court) and in 970 AD Emperor Otto 1st donated it to a monastery. In time it became an Independent Township, then it changed hands among various neighboring feudal rulers. When Napoleon invaded Italy in 1798 he annexed it to the French Empire. After Waterloo and the Congress of Vienna, Novi became part of Piedmont and the Kingdom of Savoy.
In 1860 – one year before Italy became a country as the Kingdom of Italy – Stefano Pernigotti set up a shop in the market square selling his home-made ‘torrone’ (an Italian hard candy of Arabic origins) and ‘mostarda’ (an Italian chutney). In 1882 King Humbert I allowed the Pernigottis to use the royal emblem on the cover of their products – then Pernigotti started experimenting with chocolate. Their actual chocolate industrial production began in 1927 with the ‘Gianduiotto,’ a now world-famous and classy dessert chocolate.
During the 1980s, reaganomics, thatcherism, their continental followers and globalization created a crisis. Heinz acquired the company, but management and manufacturing remained in the hands of the last Pernigottis. Followed a sequence of different ownerships and management transfers, until the Turkish group Toksoz acquired it two years ago. Now Toksoz announced the closure of the Italian plant for good and the 200 employees will be laid off. There have been demonstrations by workers and their families, but very likely nothing will come of it.
Turkey is not part of the European Union, but, as far as workers’ rights, there is no difference, as the next recounted saga of an Italian truck driver will illustrate.
I translate here the actual recordings of an interview that the truck driver gave to a journalist. The translation cannot fully convey the spirit and nuances of a truck driver’s rendition of his state of mind and view of life, but the reader can easily imagine.
“I’m 52 years old and have always been a truck driver. I started at 20, driving a small truck, delivering drinks in my area, which is a valley in Northern Italy where the “white-asses” (read the Christian Democrats) were always predominant. Then came Bossi, (leader of the Northern League – more on him and the League later) who began to pick up more votes than the white-asses ever did. But with the League, things, as I’m about to tell you, instead of improving worsened.
At the age of 23, I began driving a large truck for a young entrepreneur of the town (near Milan). I carried iron rods. The truck was always overloaded by up to 100 tons. In those conditions, to stop the truck you need tens and tens of extra meters: if you are a car or a cyclist or a pedestrian at less than that distance braking is useless. The truck does not stop and mangles everything.
It happened to some of my colleagues, but even after that no one ever checked. That overload was a weapon: one unexpected occurrence and all is gone, cargo, bodies and all. One day I said to the boss:
– Boss, do we need to overload the truck in this manner?
– I am forced to do it – he replied – because to win the contract with the foundry, I had to lower the rates. If I respect the load limits I have to make more trips and I will be in the red. If you don’t feel like driving on overload, I can find someone else.
To make all of the trips our owner was committed to do, we also had to reduce loading and unloading times. Which meant that the load was not secured to the floor – a real problem during transport because materials can slip.
One day, a friend and colleague who was carrying cold-drawn steel tubes, had to brake suddenly to avoid a tractor coming out of a field. My friend was driving like crazy, because another risk factor was speed: to respect the scheduled deliveries, you were forced to routinely exceed the legal limits.
When my friend saw the tractor he immediately realized he had no chance of stopping in time, precisely because it was overloaded and going too fast. But, instinctively, he pushed on the brake, partly due to conditioned reflex and partly to the fear of killing the poor fellow driving the tractor.
The tractor, on seeing the truck in the mirror approaching at crazy speed, swerved into a field, tipped over but the driver was not seriously hurt. But the braking of the truck caused the mountain of steel tubes to slide against the cabin, killing my friend. His body was so mangled that his wife identified him from a shoe. “I bought him these shoes the day before yesterday at the market,” she said. The rest of her husband was literally mush, “Martha, it’s better you don’t look,” said a firefighter who knew her.
Then the steel tube manufacturers transferred their ironworks in Eastern Europe and I was unemployed for a few months. Until the owner of a company who contracted for a larger company in another province hired me.
It was, in fact, a detached department of the same larger company, with about 200 employees. But in this detached department employees were split-up into many small sub-companies, each with less than 15 employees. The 200 employees worked essentially elbow-to-elbow, but the payroll had the stamp of 14 different companies. This enabled the employer to bypass the workers’ statute and trade-union rights that apply to companies with over 15 employees. Therefore the boss was free to fire anyone at any time and without reason.
Yet no one complained. They thought that, in a ‘valley of hunger’ like ours, it was already a sign of grace having a boss and a shitty job, because both are still better than no boss and no job.
I was on the TIR truck (TIR= acronym of International Road Transport) from Monday to Friday and often on Saturday and even Sunday, if there were urgent deliveries. Yet I was considered as having a privileged position. I climbed in the cabin at six in the morning and left it at six in the evening, with an hour stop for lunch, later reduced to twenty minutes because the intensity of the traffic forced you to make up for lost time. More and more often I happened to leave after eight in the evening.
A couple of years ago the owner calls me, invites me to sit down, and shows me a letter with a header consisting of a yellow and red truck, and asks:
– Camillo, you know Willi Betz?
– Who is he?
– He is a sharp and sly German who understood everything about the European Union and organized himself ahead of time to use it to advantage.
Basically, the boss explains to me that this German set-up a transportation company with hundreds of trucks in an Eastern European country. Now, thanks to the European Union, which has knocked down the borders, they can transport goods anywhere without any problems, no bureaucracies, no duties, nor loss of time. At the wheel of all those trucks the German has put East European drivers, whose wages are one-third of ours.
– In short, Camillo – my master comes to the point – you understand that if I sell my truck and have Bets transport my goods I save a lot of money. Look here – and he shows me a letter by Betz hammering it with his finger – have you seen those prices? Calculating your contributions and the cost of the truck, you cost me 60% more than a driver of Betz…
– Boss, you don’t mean to lower my pay by 60%?
– Nooo! Whom are you taking me for? A slave driver? I am happy with a 40% reduction.
My blood went to my head, I wanted to punch the bastard. But I checked myself. My wife lost her job in the garment industry many years ago and I still have one son at school. The other works but earns so little that each month he asks me to help… So I accepted.
Six months ago, the boss calls me in again. With him there is a guy I don’t know, greasy haired and badly dressed.
– Camillo – says the boss– this is Vilic… his name would be a bit complicated to learn, but let’s call him Vilic. He comes from Poland and for a while he will give you a hand.
I’m worried. Each time the boss announces a novelty it turns out to be a rip-off.
– Vilic, continues the boss, will make a few journeys with you, to learn the way. Then he will take your place, but you don’t have to worry, because you will drive a new truck and make deliveries elsewhere, even abroad. You know, the bosses of the mother company are moving operations to the East and I need someone I can trust, like you, for deliveries to their new factory, and you will see advantages from this change.
The prospect of international travel and of being away for a whole week scares me a little, but I think of the gain. I have driver friends who commute between Milan and Poland, and bring home a salary that is the double of mine.
I begin my journey with Vilic at the side. He brought a bag with him, from which drifts out an unpleasant smell of food. He wears the same clothes when I first met him in the office of the boss, and smells a bit.
He speaks little, in a broken Italian. At any road deviation I point to a reference that will help him remember. Here, you see that big sign? Careful, here you must stay on the left and turn…
He points with his finger at the sign, tells the names of the towns we go through, and takes notes in a notebook.
We stop at a rest station. He tells me that he brought food with him. He pulls from the bag an oily paper bag, and begins to eat a kind of meatballs that exude an unpleasant smell of garlic. When I go to the toilet, I find him drinking from the faucet.
This continues for a week, he’s always dirty and smelly, always munching on meatballs. One day I offered to buy him lunch, but he refused.
I thought that he had no money and felt uncomfortable for not being able to reciprocate. So the next day, I made up that the owner had offered lunch to us both. He devoured everything like a very hungry creature. With the beer he opened up for the first time with a few confidences. He said he had a wife and a daughter, who, however, left him.
He told me that at night he sleeps in a kind of closet that the boss found for him, and that, with the first pay-check, he will move into digs that a Polish shopkeeper has promised him in exchange of an advance.
He told me his wages: less than half of mine, and no contributions. The boss convinced him to register as a business owner and independent contractor. I look at this poor soul with the unpronounceable name and I feel great pity for him. Yet, according to European Union statistics, he is an industrialist, a businessman, a sole proprietor, the founder of a start-up company!
One Saturday evening I speak with my wife about these filthy tricks, and she says:
– Camillo, according to me, your boss cannot get away with this business! Do you remember what Bossi said at Ponte di Legno? [Bossi was the notorious boss of the Lega Nord – I will get back to this later. Ponte di Legno is the resort where Bossi went on vacation, near Camillo’s town].
Bossi said that we have everything to gain with the European Union. Why don’t you go to talk about your situation with Congressman Magrelli? [name altered].
So I go to see Congressman Magrelli, whom I have known for many years, we use the ‘thou’ when talking to each other.
– Dear Magrelli – I say at the end of a meeting in the headquarters of the League Section in the Valley – do you think it’s right that they reduce my pay by 40% while they hire a Pole to do the driving, treating him as an independent contractor and with a pay at the level of hunger?
– Dear Camillo, says Magrelli, we of the (Northern) League are not afraid of free competition, because a free market benefits all.
– But if the free market is the freedom to reduce the pay of the Italians to the level of those of the slaves of the East, the European Union is a big workers’ rip-off! But tell me Magrelli, Bossi preaches the autonomy of Padania (Northern Italy), but he is not even able even to defend the autonomy of Italy?
At this point, Magrelli moves away to greet someone else, and we are no longer able to talk. Every time I get closer to him, and try to restart our conversation, he ignores me until he leaves.
Last week the owner calls me again. He keeps his gaze low and his features are drawn. With a wave of the hand, he invites me to sit down without even looking at me. Minutes go by while he shifts sheets on his desk, reads or glances at them, as if I were not there. Then he says:
– Unfortunately, things are not good, we need to cut costs, and you are a burden that we can no longer afford… tomorrow Vilic takes your place, as he has learned roads and ways.
– Will I then be given another truck to drive?
– No, No… in fact, here lies the problem, the mother company has moved operations to the East and has taken over cross-border deliveries – they will handle them.
I never felt so humiliated. I was shown the door because a slave imported from Poland costs much less than me, who had already given up 40% of the salary.
As for the Northern League, here is a related personal but short chapter from my extended chronicles of wasted time. The N League had originally acquired notoriety, among other things, for having introduced the language of the toilet in the main stream of Italian politics. Though tasteless, I rated the matter as an act of sincerity, given the notoriously pharisaical nature of politicians at large.
Still, it never dawned on me to participate in the N League or in any other party. Then a friend of mine called me to say that the Politbureau of the N League had decided to establish a foreign chapter. The goal, my friend said, was to soften the tone and modify the coarse impression of the party abroad – as well as, indirectly, projecting an alternative image of the party at home. That is, the objectives of the Foreign League were cultural. One of which was a broadcast, on the League’s Radio Network, of call-in shows. Another was to establish links with political or educational groups in various countries interested in preserving their own local languages.
Though generally skeptical, I decided to believe my friend and accepted the invitation. It was a voluntary operation – no salaries or compensation involved.
For some time I broadcast a live monthly radio program titled “Window on America,” which was well followed, at least judging by the number of phone calls and messages. Then some inexplicable events converted a developing suspicion into a conviction – namely that the objectives of the Foreign N League were not as stated – therefore I resigned.
A few short months later, the bubble burst. It turned out that Bossi and a restricted conniving crew, were crassly and personally appropriating the funds that flowed into the coffers of the League, thanks to the quizzical Italian system of funding political parties. Unofficially included in the bubble were 3 million Euros assigned to the Foreign N League.
In time Bossi was condemned to over 2-year imprisonment. But, via continued and extended appeals, it is expected that the sentence will exceed the statute of limitations, hence it will not be served.
Something similar happened with Berlusconi, the Italian prime minister who vied with Bill Clinton to get the Nobel Prize for porno-lies and porno-politics. Sentenced to 7 years of imprisonment for a fiscal fraud of gargantuan dimensions, his sentence was converted into a few sessions of community service in a retirement home.
These people represent the simple, squalid and frightening concretion of personal interest with the arrogance of power. In the end, the only good thing that can be said of them is that they are not worse than what they could be.
But what connects the tortuous Brexit, a closed chocolate factory, the depressing story of a truck driver, the corruption of politicians and the European Union?
Most readers will know already. They are examples and consequences of an ideology imposed from above under different disguises.
All men are agreed concerning the truth, when demonstrated; but they are too much divided about latent truths, or when truth conflicts with prejudice. Brexit is/was about immigration from within and from without of the European Union. The saga of the truck driver made redundant, thanks to the European Union, is both an example and an archetype.
As many by now know, the founder of the European Union was Coudeneuve-Kalergi in the 1920s. When his book , “Praktischer Idealismus” came out, it caught the attention of wealthy (Jewish) bankers who offered massive financial backing for the program. A “Coudeneuve-Kalergi” prize is conferred yearly to the best among the deserving “European-Unionizers.” Two years ago the current Pope got the prize.
However “anti-semitic” it may sound, it is not my or anyone else’s invention. Kalergi envisioned a mongrelized Europe led and controlled by the best of the Jews. They would retain their racial-ethnic identity, though the genetic stock of their upper echelon was to be strengthened by intermarriage with the best of the European nobility.
WW2 disrupted the plan. After the war, the Allies (Roosevelt and Churchill) first signed off on the Morgenthau Plan for the actual physical elimination of the German race. Morgenthau was Roosevelt’s Jewish Secretary for the Economy. And only the fear of Germany’s assimilation by the Soviet Union caused the Morgenthau plan to be scrapped.
Nevertheless, the Kalergi plan restarted with a vengeance in the early 70s, following three events that I do not think unconnected.
a) The 1968 ‘student’ revolution, a product of Cultural Marxism – whose end result was trading the workers’ struggle for sexual liberation and degeneracy.
b) The 1967 Israeli aggression and annexation of Arab and Palestinian lands, aiming at the goal of a “Greater Israel” (from the Nile to the Euphrates). It turned out to be a test to see if the world would react to the utter disregard by Israel of the UN resolutions, calling for the return of lands stolen through aggression in 1967. As we know the world did nothing.
c) The launching of the “Holocaust” in 1972, a program whose strength increases in proportion to the distance in time from the alleged historical occurrence of the event.
Add to this a parallel phenomenon in the US, with massive Jewish congressional and senate pressure to first eliminate quotas on immigration and now to eliminate borders altogether.
For the saga affecting the truck driver in Italy is repeated in America on a scale comparable or greater than in Europe. The human tsunami that reached California from the South essentially eliminated jobs for those Americans who cannot survive on radically lower wages.
But unlike Americans, immigrants can accept jobs at essentially any compensation, because they automatically join the welfare system, which includes various supplementary benefits and health-care.
Of course it would be inhuman to deny treatment to a person who needs it. At which point the endlessly intractable issue of health-care meets with the equally intractable issue of the hyper-medicalization of America. Prompted and encouraged through massive advertising to seek treatment for any ailment, the migrant patient could not possibly pay for insurance, medicines and costs. Whereupon the government becomes the payer, and the consequences are easy to envision and calculate.
In the meantime, the human tsunami in California initially caused Americans looking for a job to move North. But now the same tsunami is moving North. Trump promised to put America First, but at least so far, it turned out to be mostly a euphemism for “Israel First.”
One factor, certainly ignored by the Zionist controlled media, but even overlooked by the social media, has to do with the nature of current Zionism. And I realize that the subject would need a better treatment than the simple following references.
There have been different currents (religious and political) among Jews. Through history, the strain that most antagonized the goy is referred to as ‘Classical Judaism.’ Exemplified by the case of the ultra-religious Jew who refused to allow his phone to be used on the Sabbath to call an ambulance for a non-Jew who collapsed in a street of Jerusalem. Or by the declared contempt for the goy at large by high-ranking rabbi(s), who said and say that that the goy will hopefully live long, because they are like donkeys, alive only to serve the Jews.
Furthermore, it is generally unknown, that at the historical peak of Classical Judaism, Jews always succeeded in allying themselves with the upper echelons of goy society, kings, lords, even some Popes. For, setting National Socialism aside, resentment and pogroms against the Jews came from below, not from above.
Today, the same symbiotic relationship of old seems to bind the American Congress with the neo-cons and their own current-day version of Classical Judaism. Which goes some way to explain the fathomless hypocrisy inspiring the present (nominally American) foreign policy. Including ignoring the ongoing murders of Palestinians, waging disastrous wars in the Middle East for the benefit of Israel, declaring unending friendship with the retrograde state of Saudi Arabia, (with Trump literally dancing with the Saudis,) piling beyond-ridiculous accusations and threats against Russia, subjecting to racketeering, via the international payment system, countries that do not pay homage to Israel, and so on.
There is no viable explanation as to why more reasonable currents of the Jewish community are unheard or ignored. Because there is no plumb line long enough to fathom the depth of hypocrisy, contained in some pronouncements of the Talmud, on which Classical Judaism was founded. And the current neo-conservative practitioners of Classical Judaism seem to have preserved with steadiness a doctrine which their ancestors have accepted with docility.
To conclude, this was but a quick sketch, traced by the pencil of concern for the patience of the readers. And I realize that in detailing, however cursorily, what I learned, I fear I may be accused of exaggeration. All I can do is cautiously to avoid deserving it. The intent is always to motivate readers to inform themselves independently. The subject is highly interesting, let alone critical, and it would be a fault of no trifling nature to treat it with levity.
Twilight of the patriarchal mind as god in himself
Its brightest flare seemingly all commanding
as it strives to rise and thwart its own organic supersession.
But the earth itself is deeper than the patriarchal mind
Jimmy you weave a rich tale that invites poetry.
This is the picture you painted for me
As always, a delight to read.
If any of the American, British, or European elites wanted to rule like plantation owners, wouldn’t it have been easier for them to relocate to one of many backward countries in the Global South?
Intermarrying with gentiles can pose a serious problem. I am really surprised that Jewish people have not already become an endangered species. For example, many Jewish men marry Roman Catholic women in American cities. Since according the Jewish custom, children are raised according to the religion of the mother, the children are not raised as Jews.
I would argue that such “Jews” mentioned by Jimmie Moglia are not real Jews but “Satanists hiding in the Synagogue:
More fun from Dave Zublick:
Many “made in Mexico” products are of lower quality compared to when they were once “made in the USA.” Has anyone ever questioned whether or not the Turkish-made Italian chocolates will have the same quality? Is the Northern League fake opposition?
Ah, the joy of in-sourcing and outsourcing! In another 20 years, Vilic the Polish truck driver will be too expensive. He will eventually be replaced by Oleksander the Ukrainian, who will gladly work for half of Vilic’s wages. Oleksander will eventually be replaced by Alikhan from Kazakhstan, and the cycle continues…….
If you fire your producers, you end up firing your customers. At this rate, who will be able to buy anything?
Ideally Christianity valorizes charity and poverty; ideally Judaism vallorizes charity also–I am being charitable here– but chokes at the poverty– above all it is about choseness the deity of the community (which you and I aren’t part of, hence the tiny residual actual, and much larger imagined antisemitism.)
On the level of practice, we are all sinners.
The State. The State will buy everything, organise, feed and select or kill you. Why do you think we are going to a cashless society?
You dont even need to think anymore, just follow the Chinese piper.
‘Konig, I fear you are too optimistic…in 20 years, Vilic will be replaced by Mr. Roboto, the gps’d drone delivery truck, bypassing both of your Ukrainian and Kazakhstani friends. At that point, both the useless workers and the “useless eaters” (Kissinger) will be culled from the herd.
Jimmy Moglia stands out as the most inspiring contributor on this blog, where competition is stiff. I read the essay in one fell swoop.
The main theme — to wit, the march towards the bottom in the realm of labour laws, outsourcing, government regulation, etc. — can be aptly summed up as a reckoning with the West’s labour aristocracies and middle classes by Western Monopoly Capital. These attacked strata of Western society strike one as being essentially reactionaries without friends. So some of them fell for the siren songs of Right Wing populism regardless of the latter’s atrocious track record — it’s controlled opposition all along the line, and its mass base doesn’t even seem to care.
The West is collapsing and decomposing — and the pace increases by the day.
Mr. Moglia has always interesting articles.
Thanks for this piece Jimmie.
Regarding the origins of the EU, I don’t doubt that the first idea for it may have arisen in the 20s by zionism as described here by you. But it is also a fact that this idea was very pampered and nurtured with concrete plans in Nazi Germany (after all, nazis and zionists are kind of joined at the hip and always have been) and then, after Germany’s subjugation, the main nazi planners of the EU project were recruited by US agencies to continue the project.
Walter Hallstein, the first European Commissioner, was a prominent nazi lawyer and a key element in the history of the EU. Take a careful look at this document, which includes Hallstein’s 1939 “Conquest” speech, the names of his colleagues, and how the process developed:
Master Plan of the Nazi/Cartel Coalition – Blueprint for the ‘Brussels EU
Or this presentation
The EU is based on the Nazi plans published in Berlin in 1942
“The EU was founded and initially led by ‘former’ Nazis and Fascists, as was the Charlemagne Prize awarded to Tony Blair, Edward Heath, Roy Jenkins and others for their role in removing democratic sovereignty from the nation states of Europe.” No wonder, says Atkinson, that the EU has today reproduced the policies and structures of 1940s Europe and shows all the characteristics of a totalitarian anti democratic corporatist Empire — for that is what its fascist founders intended.
In this speech — delivered at a public meeting held at The House of Commons on Tuesday 26th February 2008 — Atkinson describes in detail the backgrounds of those Nazis and Fascists who were so prominent in founding and supporting that “European Union” which now governs Britain — he describes how, among many others:
Walter Hallstein, a “Nazi Leadership Officer” who promoted Nazism in Universities and the Law became the First President of the European Commission in 1957.
Paul Henri Spaak openly rejected the democracies in favour of the fascist powers and warned the Allies not to attack Germany through Belgium. He became a Founding Father of the European Union.
Walter Funk was a Minister under Goebbels at the Nazi Propaganda Ministry and as [the] Reich’s Economics Minister was responsible for dispossessing Jews of their property. He wrote the economic blueprint for a united Europe adopted by the European Union. He was employed in the Lower Saxony Education Ministry from 1957 to 1960.
Hans Josef Globke drafted the Nuremburg Race Laws and then became Director of the German Chancellor’s Office from 1953 to 1963 when the European Economic Community was created.
Lady Diana Mosley, the Hitler-admiring wife of [Oswald] Mosley (a supporter of the European Union and leader of the British Union of Fascists) expressed her admiration for the European Union in a BBC interview shortly before her death.
Nazi roots of EU
What you have written is debatable, bearing in mind the influx of false refugees into Germany and other European countries, which was hardly a Nazi intention. The united Europe of Nazi Germany has nothing in common with the EU of today.
The European Union is not a European creation. It was created by Anglo-American bankers, using the US Federation as a model. Both the US and EU possess and are ruled by private central banks, where politicians have been reduced to clerks obeying commands. The intent of the EU was to curtail the sovereign status of European states, placing them under the jurisdiction of Brussels. Europe was transformed into a private colony of private bankers. To ensure this private colony functioned, the EU was given the task of flooding Europe with false refugees and migrants, who were given the role of a political, economic, financial, social and ethnic Trojan Horse, whose task was to break the back of sovereign European states. Those who advocate multicultural societies know perfectly well that such societies cannot work. Look at what is happening in France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, etc. This was hardly a Nazi intention.
Brussels was given the double role of chief administrative and military center of this banker colony. It also houses the HQ of NATO, the Praetorian Guard of of the colony, “guarding” Europe from a non existent Russian threat. In effect the EU is the civilian component of NATO. Both work in conjunction with one another. When Yanukovich was overthrown in Kiev in 204, both the EU and NATO colluded in the coup d’etat.
Besides placing Western and Central Europe under banker (globalist) control, the intent was for both the EU and NATO to move towards the East, right up to the borders of Russia. The coup d’etat in Kiev in 2014 is proof of this. The EU was given the task of administrative formalities, while NATO was given the task of placing missile systems right next to Russia’s borders, after which Russia was to be given the choice of either surrendering or perishing. Well, it did not end up as planned. What nobody expected was a resurgent Russia.
What do we have now ? The EU Central Bank is printing euros backed by nothing, as is the US Fed printing dollars backed by nothing. Neither the EU nor NATO can be financed indefinitely, using freshly printed funny money. Analysts are of the opinion that both will collapse, as they will. It’s not a question of if, but when.
Of course the globalist bankers are none too happy about this, doing their best to provoke conflicts and giving NATO an excuse to exist. They are playing a dangerous game, all the more so since many in the West are realizing what they are doing. We shall see how this will end.

No. Nazi Germany was enthusiastically supported by most of the major European and American corporate oligarcs (as well as by the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England). A corporate -financial paradise ruled directly by financial capital is what was envisioned. And it is what was obained. Ethnic/racial purity narratives were cute fairy tales for the birds. Oligarcs don’t care about the ethnic or racial purity of their slaves. Why should they? They care about easy supply of slaves. The EU of today is in fact the united Europe of Nazi Germany come true.
Agreed and…after reading the whole of Anonymous’ linked second chapter of “Master Plan of the Nazi/Cartel Coalition – Blueprint for the ‘Brussels EU”, it seems to me that a more accurate interpretation of Walter Hallstein’s 1939 speech, where the authors inserted [NAZI/Cartel] in numerous places in the presented translation, instead should have been inserted [Zionist/Banker] for a much more accurate depiction of the claimed “hidden” meaning of Wallstein’s speech in relation to the future creation of the EU. After all, it is the Zionists/Bankers who own(ed) most of the cartel, had funded both sides of both World Wars and were the drive behind the founding of the EU. To point fingers at Nazi’s is misdirection.
Excellent article. The Author should not be embarrassed. Long but worth every minute spent.
You want the readers to challenge you? I only have the depressing, too hard to deal with for most, question: What to do about it?? I mean its easy to see the negatives and its easy to point at Trump, Xi and Putin, and then we are back again in matrix.
Jimmy, as always touchy and very to the point.
Having friends from Eastern Europe, mostly Poland, I understand that they have totally barbaric kind of capitalism, where people may or may not be payed. The salaries were usually withheld until the owner decided that he had no choice but pay the people, and I suspect not in full.
I am totally with your story.
Well, Greek Government is not better than them, stealing people’s money and withholding pensions.
On the other hand, I remember watching a documentary on PBS about EU (few years back) where the French guy said that EU idea is just a continuation of what Napoleon was trying to do, which would put us right smack into late 1700’s, as he was defeated by Russia in 1812, which put an end to his dream.
Enjojoyable and informative read as always from this author.
I feel bad for the Italian truck driver but the problem is everyone loves cheap stuff! Perhaps if the populations of western Europe hadn’t filled their houses with cheap, useless trinkets from China, and instead had purchased the more expensive local products then maybe they wouldn’t feel such downward pressure on their own salaries.. .
You can’t have it both ways, buying on the cheap from abroad but having high salaries at the same time.
”You can’t have it both ways, buying on the cheap from abroad but having high salaries at the same time.”
It is precisely this which gave the West its social cohesion. Moglia’s excellent piece shows how neoliberalism is aggressively putting an end to this — the labour aristocracy and West’s middle classes be damned.
Still, there are people posting here who make all kinds of angry noises about ”false refugees”, Coudenhoeve-Kalergi, and what-have-you as if there were no economic interests involved whatsoever. To add insult to injury, the globalists do see that Whitey isn’t breeding enough to preserve stationary demographics. Quite hilarious listening to angry Whiteys ranting on about ”genocide” — well, if so then it’s 100% self-inflicted. With or without any immigrant communities around you, you still have to ’contribute’ a little yourself for the sake of biological reproduction. LGBT has its limits, after all.
But, ultimately, neoliberal economics promote immigration from the Third World to the First World so as to bring back the working poor again to the Heartlands of Western imperialism. Too much to comprehend for quite a few people — essentially believing in being exceptional and indispensable to imperialism or, at least, believing in their being on good terms with it.
This is not about buying cheap Asian stuff (okay Chinese mostly, but not only).
People from Eastern Europe are no better than the proverbial “Arabs”, except for their skin color and possibly religion. Those countries use their own currency, which trades very favorably against Euro/Dollar/Pound. The cost of living in those countries is also much lower than in the Euro-sphere.
For example (the numbers here are only to demonstrate the difference and may or may not be real):
If a bloke from eastern Europe makes 10Euros/day and his currency trades at say 4.50his-money/1Euro he makes 45his-money/day which could turn out to be not so bad. Now the working people from Euro-sphere have to pay say 3Euros for loaf of bread then 10Euros/day does not go very far, does it. He (the Italian driver) has to pay taxes (his 10 Euros become only 6Euros after income tax), pay for all other expenses, while “while Arab” lives in the box and does not have any expenses and gets payed under the table, sends the money to his family and the money is never declared. See the difference?
Why does Mr Moglia insist he has only 25 readers? It is at least 26. I read his pieces with great relish, not least as I am a Shakesperean academic.
Reading Mr. Moglia pieces is like an intelectual massage. Please keep up the good work sir!
I have read Jimmie Moglia before, and initially was somewhat critical in my thoughts. I was not immediately one of his “twenty-five readers”. I thought he was using far too many words, but then I read some more, and became his Number 26 reader.
I realised, it was like criticising Mozart, for using too many notes.
This is completely brilliant
Ah, the words of Buckminster Fuller:
“Sadly we see enormous numbers of stranded poverty-stricken people while potential abundance is being deliberately curtailed by governments subservient to the landlord’s will.
Humanity is so accustomed to failure it still assumes failure to be normal, and does not realize that it has literally earned -and actually acquired-the capability to take care of everyone on earth at a higher standard of living than ever heretofore experienced by anyone.
The really big fact is that we are going to have to go through a complete mental resorting of what it is all about. then we are going to have to go about taking care of everybody not as on relief, but with the same spontaneous welcome and love accorded a new born baby.
Landlordism will no longer be able to extract a ransom. Money too will become obsolete, with the ability to produce enough to take care of all.
The fact that we now have the capability to support all life and are not doing so means we have to introduce a new system. One that can make the world work.” April 26th, 1973 in an interview with Michael Ben Eli
A new system which means what exactly? A One World Government which raises a profound question or issue for the governments of the world and especially so the EU and that is the question of authority: Note the words:
Professor Laski, Oxford:
“Sovereignty must go; that means also the interests which sovereignty protects must be recognized as outmoded in character and dangerous in operation.”
Paul Henri Spaak,
“Let that man be a military man or a layman it matter not.”
Roswell Gilpatrick, former Deputy of Defense:
“Strong, one man civilian control of America’s giant military establishment is vital to the nations well being. the concentration of authority is inevitable.”
“It is necessary to discover a head capable of directing it, endowed with an intelligence surpassing the most elevated human level.”
And so the predicament ultimately facing the EU. No Leader? But ah were we not given one in Christ Jesus? Indeed we were but in rejecting Him we will have an imposter soon enough. A Mr. Global who will I think and believe will unfortunately pull off one of the greatest Robin Hood moments in human history! The actual confiscation and redistribution of the worlds wealth equally among the nations and will demand to be worshipped as god! The beginnings of which is surely seen and clearly described with China’s new social credit system. the beast system as described in Rev. 13
If we haven’t arrived to what is described in Mathew 24 and 25 I’ll eat my shorts!
found this today and alas even without a Mr. Global / Robinhood the lying and thievery is incredible:
Do you think the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is promoting science rather than socialism? Read the following admission from the co-chair of the UN IPCC Working Group III, during an interview in 2010 with the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung:
“We must free ourselves from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy … We must state clearly that we use climate policy de facto to redistribute the world’s wealth.”
