As you can imagine, the official history of the EU is widely available in libraries, bookshops and websites (including the EU's one), so I'd rather take a different approach and present the origin of the EU and fast forward to the present times instead of repeating what's already available in one form or another.
The concept of a supranational European entity, often referred to as United States of Europe, has developed throughout various centuries, but what's interesting to me is how it has been implemented from the 20th century onward.
Many of you may think that the first person in the 20th century who called for the creation of the United States of Europe was Winston Churchill in 1946.
However, according to Wikipedia, Richard Nikolaus Eijiro, Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi (16 November 1894 – 27 July 1972), an Austrian-Japanese politician, philosopher and Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi, is the recognized founder of the first popular movement for a united Europe, the Paneuropean Movement, of which he was President until his death in 1972.
His influence in the making of the EU is fundamental. It goes from laying out the ideological basis of the Union, to suggesting the adoption of the Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" as the music for the European Anthem, to contributing to the design of the EU logo which contains 12 stars (the 12 tribes of Israel).
In his various books and articles, he describes his idea of the future United States of Europe, in which the nationalism of ethnically homogeneous sovereign states, will be replaced by a "common European nationalism" based on a common European culture, "a kind of 'supra-national' nationalism" that is European rather than a balance of powers between the European nations.
One way to reach this goal is described in his book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism, 1925):
"The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today's races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals."
This creation of a new Europe, a Pan-Europe, based on new ideals of social democracy rather than feudal aristocracy and a new European identity deprived of its ethnic characteristics, would be overseen, according to Kalergi, by a "social aristocracy of the spirit", the Jewry.
Every year since 1950, the City of Aachen (Germany) bestows the Charlemagne Prize, to the politicians and Heads of State who have excelled in promoting this paneuropean vision.
Winners of the Charlemagne Prize have been Kalergi (1950), "the founding fathers of the United Europe such as de Gasperi, Schuman, Monnet and Adenauer" (as written on the official website of the city of Aachen), Winston Churchill (1956), George Marshall (1959), Angela Merkel (2008), Henry Kissinger (1987), Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands (1996), Tony Blair (1999), Bill Clinton (2000), Jean Claude Juncker (2006), Donald Tusk (2010), Pope Francis (2016), and Emmanuel Macron (2018).
I suppose it's fair to infer then that since the Treaty of Paris, every single treaty aimed to take away, little by little, the sovereignty of every country which adopted it without explaining to their citizens what the endgame was.
Furthemore, in my view, the implementation of Kalergi's ideals explain:
1) Why the Lisbon Treaty, rejected by the French, the Irish, and the Dutch, was imposed on their countries nevertheless. (The Irish voted a second time, after obtaining a few concessions.)
2) The "open borders" policy: from Shengen, in order to create a common European culture; to the acceptance of a sharp increase of illegal immigration in the last 10 years, and the demonisation of anyone who spoke against it (like in Sweden, in Germany and in Italy) to "replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals".
This artificial unity is showing more and more cracks, especially since the Chinese virus pandemic has hit the Italian shores and more and more EU countries have suspended the Shengen Treaty and closed their borders.
The proclaimed solidarity among the EU countries is nowhere to be seen: my country of origin, Italy, has been helped by Russia, Cuba, and ironically, China.
The "n" word, "nationalism", is now invoked unashamely to encorage the trapped citizens in the countries in lockdown.
The response of the EU authorities is still indecisive to say the least, and Brussels has never been so far away from the minds and hearts of the citizens the European Union member states.
Will the EU survive this existential threat? What do you think, dear Seekers? Please leave your comments below.
SAVE THE DATE: my post on military alliances, and economy in Euroland and in the countries who haven't adopted the Euro will go live on 22nd April.
In the meantime, stay safe and remember that life is what you make of it, not what it throws at you.
The short answer is: they are tools to surveil everything we do, like in the book “1984” by George Orwell, so that we lose our freedom and liberty once and for all, culling the world population (us) while doing so.
After analysing the UN’s Agenda 30 document in my blog post,
EARTH CHANGES-THE FUTURE (Part 2/2): “TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: THE 2030 AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT” IS NOT WHAT THE UN WANTS YOU TO BELIEVE,
I’m convinced this conclusion fits perfectly in the bigger picture of how the ruling class is trying to shape our future, hoping we’ll find out only when it’s too late.
Outrageous? Crazy? Too far-fetched?
You’ll be the judge. I only ask you, dear Seeker, to read this post and look at the evidence I present you.
I’ll start by borrowing the following description of the 5G technology from the website 5G Appeal.
What is 5G – an introduction
5G signifies ‘5th generation’ wireless technology. It is said to provide faster and higher transmission capacity. It includes the Internet of Things (IoT), driverless cars, and faster video streaming.
5G will massively increase the microwave and millimeter wave radiation in our environment. It will also use new frequencies that are not evaluated by experts independent from industry as to their safety.
5G will include the higher millimeter wave frequencies, previously used for crowd control for instance. The millimeter waves do not travel easily through buildings so 5G will require millions of new “small cell” antennas.
The wireless telecom industry intend to outfit nearly all lamp post or utility post around the countries with these wireless small cell antennas beaming hazardous radiation next to, or into our homes, schools, working places and everywhere, 24/7.
5G radiation will be sent from advanced antennas, so called phased arrays, that transmit the microwaves and/or millimeter waves in narrow bands, a technology originally developed for military purposes. This will massively increase the exposure to radiation in those beams, that will be nearly everywhere. …
No evaluation of health effects nor of effects on the wildlife and the environment has been undertaken. There is no research showing safety neither from 5G alone, nor from the combined exposure to 5G + already existing radiation from GSM, 3G, WiFi, 4G etc.
What does this mean?
I would like you to ponder also on the following two questions:
One last thing on the 5G technology:
Even UN staff members are concerned about it. Claire Edwards, who worked for the United Nations as Editor and Trainer in Intercultural Writing from 1999 to 2017, describes her experience in the article
UN Staff Member: 5G Is War on Humanity, Take Back your Power, January 2019,
I did my best to alert the UN staff union, administration and medical service to the danger to the health of UN staff of EMR from these access points, but was ignored. That’s why, in May 2018, I took the issue to the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres [ transcript]. He is a physicist and electrical engineer and lectured on telecommunications signals early in his career, yet asserted that he knew nothing about this. He undertook to ask the World Health Organization to look into it, but seven months later those public access points remain in place. I received no replies to my many follow-up emails.
Also called “autonomous cars”, driverless cars are cars that can move without a driver. I used to love this idea, because sometimes it was physically painful for me to drive.
However, my initial enthusiasm has been replaced by concern, for two main reasons:
Autonomous cars will need two things to operate safely: ultra-fast communication between nearby cars, things and the cloud, and near real-time data about their surroundings. Both DSRC and 4G LTE are fast.Both provide the connections to other vehicles and nearby things. But neither technology was designed for transmitting big data files really quickly. ….
But big data files are reason enough to align autonomous driving to 5G.
“Smart” Meters and the Internet of Things
When government from around the world push the same agenda all of a sudden, I get even more suspicious. That’s the case with fracking, 5G, vaccinations and “smart” meters.
Also, can you imagine how much your data can be worth to whoever steals it or sells it? Especially if your “smart” meter is connected to the 5G grid (which is where it is all going) and to all of your appliances (Internet of Things). They would know everything about you, I mean EVERYTHING.
In the UK, the 5G rollout is starting later this year targeting at first London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester.
Later on, the second phase will include Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol.

Luckily, people all over the world are taking action to prevent this catastrophic scenario to become reality, but there's a lot to do to increase the awareness on this topic in the world.
