Is the Western elite's brainchild - the European Union - disintegrating?
Due to persistent economic problems, the rise of "popular resentment" across the continent, the political fallout after the illegal coup in Ukraine and the subsequent unpopular economic war on Russia, the EU is on the verge of crumbling.
In an interview with France 24, the hedge fund manager, billionaire and founder of the Open Society Foundation, George Soros, reveals (below video) that the European Union has failed to achieve the desires of the elite and many within Europe now see "Russia as a role model":
Soros then asserts that many in Europe - including the UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage, Front National President Marine Le Pen in France, as well as "a lot of people in Germany" - find the idea of,
Europe has been in crisis for years now and the outcome of this latest flare up with Russia could determine the future of the EU itself.
In an article featured in The New York Review this month titled: Wake Up, Europe, Soros notes that since the financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent austerity policies imposed by the nefarious troika (the EU, ECB and IMF), "popular resentment" and support for anti-European parties has risen:
As anger continues to mount in the West at the ineptitude and immorality of government, the elite will attempt to "co-opt" organic movements and even create artificial political movements to guide and neutralize "popular passions".
The EU: An extension of the Anglo-American Elite
The EU is an experiment in replacing national countries with a union which is to be amalgamated with emerging sovereignty-usurping unions across the planet, including the North American Union and a possible Middle Eastern Union, into a global empire.
The executive body of the EU - the European Commission - is a corporate partner of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the parallel British government which strives for global conquest.
Étienne Davignon, a former European Commissioner and an influential architect of European integration, revealed that the annual Anglo-American conference - the Bilderberg group,
Soros himself is hugely entrenched within the shadow world empire, as he heads up the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) in addition to being heavily involved with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in the U.S.
Blowback from Economic Warfare on Russia
Europe has been the home of protests by irate farmers who have been hit hardest by the nonsensical political decision to impose sanctions on Russia following the illegal Western coup in Kiev.
In response to Western sanctions, Russia imposed a ban on food imports in August from countries backing the sanctions resulting in lower food prices in Europe as produce floods the market yet demand has dropped from a major importer in the East.
This ban would never have been applied if the West did not overthrow the government in Kiev, and then further antagonize Moscow by implementing sanctions on the country. The loss of trade due to lower food exports is set to cost the EU an estimated $6.6 billion a year, yet the social blowback from the agricultural sector in an already sensitive and potentially volatile continent could be unquantifiable.
France has been gripped by numerous protests over the past few months as living standards continue to fall and the prohibition of exporting certain foods to Russia takes effect.
Farmers in Brittany torched tax offices in addition to dumping cauliflower, artichokes and manure outside government offices during a protest in mid September, due to frustration with government policies. An estimated 36,000 people participated in a nation-wide protest in France earlier this month where they again dumped manure and rotten vegetables outside local government buildings, partly due to being unable to export food to Russia.
Spain has also seen protests by the farming sector over Russian sanctions, as agricultural unions dumped surplus potatoes outside the French multinational retailer Carrefour in Granada.
The unions were protesting against the price Carrefour pays for their crops as well as the European Commission's Emergency Fund not covering the loss potato farmers are experiencing due to reduced food exports.
The fund purchases surplus stock from certain products produced to compensate farmers unable to export food to Russia, but it does not cover superfluous potato stocks.
Dissent and opposition to the policies of the EU is much broader than just the blowback from imposing sanctions on Russia however, as,
Austerity has decimated Southern Europe and anti-austerity rallies have become a fixture of life for many Europeans.
In October, Naples witnessed thousands of people taking to the streets outside a European Central Bank (ECB) meeting held in Italy, where protestors demanded an end to austerity and high unemployment.
Unemployment and contempt towards the political class has soared across the European continent since the financial crisis of 2008, and this could trigger a revolution in Europe in the coming years.
There is no question that the elite will do everything in their power to prop up the EU and attempt to "co-opt" any movement challenging the established order, but this may prove ineffective at containing the imminent uprising…
