The health crisis caused by China that has engulfed the entire world has finally revealed all the misery of so much-praised European solidarity. At the time when the population is facing a deadly virus and people are dying, Brussels bureaucrats are playing ideological and political games. Instead of helping and taking measures, they adopt resolutions and unilaterally, without any evidence, accuse individual countries of alleged authoritarianism. Of course, this is far from the truth, this is just more proof that the European Union is in a political crisis and that it does not want to be a community where people are free to trade and travel with each other. In fact, it is particularly important to Brussels that as a transnational entity, it also controls the political, social and cultural life of sovereign countries. Therefore, EU countries are realizing that it is best when they help themselves without a mediator and this may radically change the post-viral old continent
Europe has already experienced several crises in its history that have changed it. The apocalyptic virus will only accelerate this process. In recent years, when we experience a forced identity crisis, I often remember the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. Then also, the indigenous people were decimated by disease, but there were two main reasons for the decline of the empire, as described in the book For God and Profit by Samuel Gregg, director at Acton research institute. The first was in the debauchery that came from cultural and moral decadence. The self-sufficiency and numbness of the intellectual mind led the once mighty empire to the path of destruction. The second reason was that retarded leaders neglected the military and the defending of external borders. In such circumstances, it was not difficult for hordes of barbarians to conquer the territory, especially when traitorous political demagogues were willing to compromise in order to prolong their malign hedonism.
It is easy to find historical parallels with modern Europe, it is not necessary to be exactly Stephen Hawking to recognize the identical pattern of behavior of the Roman tribunes and the Brussels bureaucracy. They both destroy European civilization from the inside, it is just that today this is cultural Marxism. Through militant feminist associations, LGBT activists, anti-militarist prophets, ecoterrorists, corrupt and spineless holders of legislative and executive power, deniers of life and witch doctors of the ideology of death, they seek to destroy European culture and build a global society without nations and national cultures. This deconstructionism of the fake elite corrodes the skeleton of Europe and seeks to weaken Europeans. Individual countries are also a target. Hungary and Poland are two of those who are a thorn in the site of globalist aspirations to control the world. The same is true for Slovenia, which, after the appointment of a center-right government led by Janez Jansa, found itself in disgrace of various international organizations led and directed by George Soros, an embodied planetary evil. This chase was slowed (but not stopped) by the pandemic. However, it is precisely the countries that are targeted that have been most successful in managing the health disaster, and their governments are strengthening their public support and reputation.
The crisis is therefore an opportunity for Europe, which was most affected by the pandemic, to return to its roots. There was no solidarity, the EU lost its credibility, people are realizing that Brussels has left them in the lurch and that they can only rely on their leaders and their country. When it is a matter of life, they are not interested in the intrigue of transnational officials. And more. It discourages them from commanding their country from the outside and preaching to them what is right and wrong. The fact, that countries turned inward, put the needs and health of their citizens first and closed the borders was a completely normal move because of the EU’s nonchalant attitude to the crisis. And bearing in mind that large differences between rich and poor member states emerged during EU economic rescue package negotiations, and that there is no consensus on whether to stimulate inflation or to allow deflation (due to weak demand and excess supply, deflation would normally follow), the rift is only deepening.
Maybe this is why now is the time to start writing the new history of Europe, where the most magnificent civilization in human history has grown. A return to tradition, our own culture, Christianity and patriotism seems inevitable, and this further annoys left-wing riders of the apocalypse, who are slowly and surely sweeping of their feet. Although the fight will be long, the crack in the wall of useful idiots from the Brussels floors is big enough to stop the multiculturalist and anti-national devastation march.
The EU’s political crisis has been completely revealed by the coronavirus. It became clear that the future of EU is not threatened by nation-states, Christianity and tradition, and that it is precisely sovereignty that will help to sustain individual cultures and economies. Italy has made it clear that it no longer wants to be a member of the EU as it is now. Italians are even considering Italexit. It is similar with the French, who until recently were the biggest proponents of a united Europe, but now their finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, is calling on compatriots to buy home-made products. Germany did not want to give anyone the necessary medical equipment, she wanted to keep everything for herself. No one criticized their selfishness. And that’s ok. If the new geopolitical image of Europe grows on the foundations of sovereign nations that live in peaceful coexistence and trade with one another, it will be ok. The EU can survive only this way. Therefore, we can only hope that post-viral Europe will finally wash away an arrogant Brussels bureaucracy that wants to implement the dark Kalergi plan.
