IRELAND CHALLENGES EU
Ireland, according to the Daily Bell, is making noises about holding a referendum on its continued presence in the EU:
Internet Reformation Rolls On? ... Now Ireland Vote Seen as Threat to EU
For this author, the paragraph that jumped out was the following:
"No matter what happens with the Irish vote, we'd argue that the amount of push-back the Eurocrats are currently experiencing is well beyond what they expected when they first anticipated that an economic crisis would allow them to tighten their control over these fractious nation-states."
I tend to agree, for I have been arguing for some time that there seem to be ever widening cracks in the careful edifice that the globalists and technocrats have attempted to shackle everyone with.
But that is not what concerns me here. When we speak of the Anglo-Amerikan elite, or of the Anglosphere, we're talking about a sick, twisted group of looters and plunderers, an international criminal class, that would have everyone else pay for their own malfeasance and culpability in floating bad loans to begin with. The fault, they have argued in the past, is not us for making the loans, but the borrower for living beyond their means. We are, in other words, dealing with true blievers, pursuing a goal with all the extremism of religious zealots.
And that means that they will try and do anything to achieve their goal, from stuffing virtual ballot boxes to achieve favorable outcomes to their agendas, to creating crises - external threats - to European security that would compel or force an integrated union when all other methods fail. That in part, I believe, explains why we see such a cranking up of war preparations and rhetoric against Iran.
The problem is, as The Daily Bell points out, the Irish - as I know all too well, being partly Irish myself - are about more than drinking at pubs and scribbling in notebooks (which we've been doing for a long time, ever since Duns Scotus Eriugena - look him up!) and writing incomprehensible Joycean novels or sumptuous Wildean prose. And what holds true for the Irish, holds true for the Greeks, and as we shall eventually see, the Italians, the Spanish, the Portuguese... What the true believers in these elites just don't seem to get, is that people will tolerate only so much for so long.
See you on the flip side...

The Irish like the Greeks, Italians, Spanish and Portugese know they are being reduce to banana republics. They also know the Normans are what the Romans called educated barbarians they have been in the empire business but now they are out of it and moved on. Only when the Norman-Americas bury their imperial ambitions will they recover sences and move on to build a culture.
Why am I not surprised that it is the Irish who may be the first to break the shackles. The past 800 years of Irish history has been a continued fight for independence and freedom. The Irish are a fiercely proud people and one would have thought that the British empire had learned its lesson by now but alas, they haven’t. Coming from a Scots/Irish family myself I well know that with a few guinness under their belts, the Irish are always ready for a foight.
the borrowers living beyond there means…..lol, the pot calling the kettle black…
and the nerve of these imbred evil #$%#@@#$ to steal the ingenious technology of hard working noble men and bury it from mankind.
You made a excellent observation Dr Farrel of how the saying absolute power corrupts absolutely was incorrect….it is the corrupt that seek power….it is so obvious and clearly makes my stomach sicken to see these people pretend to give a crap about anything out of reach of there stretching noses.
Which reminds me of a buried history story of kidnapped Irishman brought to New York to fight against the south during the uncivil war, as soon as they got armed they attacked, burned and rioted in new york against the enslavers.
God blessed the Irish.
I yam what I yam !
I’ve had all I can stand,
I an’t stands no more!
Hadn’t thought of him since i read some Dionysius the Pseudo-Areopagite back in college. Always thought it instructive that the Irish put people like him on their money instead of dead corrupt politicians.
Ah, John Eriugena, very important man. Possibly the first and last genuine philosopher that western europeans had– prior to the Renaissance–who was not doing philosophy as a “handmaiden” or to fulfill theocratic requirements. German idealism *cough* Neoplatonism doesn’t get off the ground without Eriugena, just as those Germans said.
