There is little doubt that Europe is moving into what Jefferson described as the third phase of government: Force. The federalization of Europe is now the number one agenda to project the jobs in Brussels. There is no such thing as “European”. If you ask anyone in Europe what they are, they will NEVERrespond “European”. Instead they will say German, French, Dutch, Italian etc.
What made the United States work was more than a single currency – it was a single language. The key wasDISCRIMINATION, which was always very fair; whoever was the last off the boat was discriminated against. That forced each group to speak English to get a job and blend in. As that developed, today ask an American what they are and you will get half German and half Irish etc. You will get only such an odd mix in Europe, so no matter what Brussels does by force, the language divide will remain.
Europeans do not see themselves as Europeans; they see themselves as separate distinct ethnic groups. We even see divisions in the Jewish community. Jewish ethnic divisions refers to a number of distinctive communities within the world’s ethnically Jewish population. Although considered one single self-identifying ethnicity, there are distinctive ethnic divisions among Jews, most of which are primarily the result of geographic branching from an originating Israelite population, mixing with local populations, and subsequent independent evolution. Sephardi Jews, the Jews of North Africa, Spain, and Portugal, are traditionally very distinct and it is generally considered that they will not marry another Jew who is from a different branch.
After the latest shooting in a black church, the media began to call for the removal of the Confederate flag. They are asking presidential candidates if they are in favor of the flag, trying to paint them as a racist if they refuse to ban it. People are rushing out to buy the flags now in the South because stores are pulling them and are refusing to sell them. This is strangely raising the distinction once again that had faded. Not that it is racist support, but an identity. This is the beginning of a rise in distinction once again, which will ultimately lead to the break-up of the United States in the decades ahead.
The attempt of Brussels to create Europeans by sheer force will fail. People inherently cherish their roots and if you try to eliminate that by force, you will fail. The incident of the Confederate Flag will historically reignite the trend toward separation. Despite speaking the common language, we will see resentment rise both in Europe and the United States as the economy turns down.
