Nigel Farage On The Total Subjugation Of Europe

Tyler Durden's picture


Forget black swans, Nigel Farage is rapidly turning himself into the black sheep of the EU Parliament with his constant stream of truthiness and honest pragmatism. It seems the broadly nodding-donkeys that fill the chamber remain cognitively dissonant to any and everything in the real world - hanging instead on the next soundbite from Van Rompuy or Barroso on how well things are going, or how the crisis is 'almost' over. If only the Germans would bless them all with their money. In one his plainest-speaking rants, Farage provides clarity to his 'peers' on just exactly what the bailouts of Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and soon to be Spain and Italy are actually about - the "total subjugation of the states to a completely undemocratic structure in Brussels." Is it any wonder Samaras and crew - while happy to accept cash and make promises - are pulling away from yet another (this time is the last time) Troika-driven austerity push? "The euro-zone is in a very dark place; economically, socially, and politically."

Some mind-blowing quotes in here as Farage refers to the leaders of Italy and Spain and their remarkable nonsense...

Listen to the entire 3:30 - it is frightening just what is occurring on the ground across the pond from a US nation with eyes only for the election for now...

I think Peter Schiff is pretty much the US equivalent of Nigel, with the benefit that his perspective comes from building his career in finance rather than politics (although he did run for senate in Connecticut).  Together they should embark on an inter-atlantic tour of speaking engagements and try to talk some sense into people.  Most sheep won't listen though.  Soon conditions on the ground will convince citezens that their polititians are lying.  Then a different style of politics that has Austrian economic theories forming the basis for policy may be accepted.  It took Nigel Farag's UKIP party 20 years to finally gain seats in Parliament.  Hopefully the change will happen much quicker here.  Oh and by politics with Austrian-based politics, I don't mean libertarian.

"The banking collapse was caused, more than anything, by bad government policy and the total failure of bad regulation, rather than by greed."     Nigel Farage

greed [gri?d]  noun
1. excessive consumption of or desire for food; gluttony
2. excessive desire, as for wealth or power

It was greed, Nigel, plain and simple.  The greedy banks sold the toxic debt.  Greedy rating agencies rated it AAA.  America is populated with a fat & greedy population.  They will never be satiated.  Big food portions.  Big cars.  Big houses.   Big debt.  Everything big.   Everything to excess.

Greed and regulation are tied together.  Regulation is one of the mechanisms government has to contain greed.  The legal system sets the playing rules.  The problem is when the government gets "owned."  When the legal system gets twisted.  When regulation can be effectively trumped.  When social complexity gets so deep that there is no way out.

Splitting hairs maybe.  But I tend to agree greed is more fundamental.  +1.

If one goes Austrian and strives for intellectual integrity, he's got no choice but to become an anarcho-capitalist.  It's a natural evolution in the libertarian circles, in fact, as one progresses from learning economic theory (Austrian) to learning logically compatible legal theory and ethics (Rothbardian) as the understanding dawns that the non-aggression principle is a necessary condition for a free market, and that it is impossible to have one without the other.

Tue, 10/23/2012 - 20:27 | 2914559 dermus
dermus's picture

That's not true. Rothbard hung around Objectivist circles, was basically shunned by them, and he took up and left, but not without taking the Objectivist non-agression principle, and establishing it as the axiom around which he founded his own movement.

It's important to note the difference between an axiom and a principle, as the Objectivists came up with the principle as the logical conclusion of an entire cascade of logical progressions, based on much lower-level axioms (i.e. the law of identity, or that man's highest value is his life).

By turning it into an axiom, Rothbard set aside all the logic behind it, made it a given that must be essentially believed in, and proceeded to logically develop his theory based on a false premise. As such, he degenerated into so-called "anarcho-capitalism".

I'll quote from Ayn Rand to give the appropriate response to anyone claiming capitalism should end in anarchy:

"Anarchy, as a political concept, is a naive floating abstraction: . . . a society without an organized government would be at the mercy of the first criminal who came along and who would precipitate it into the chaos of gang warfare. But the possibility of human immorality is not the only objection to anarchy: even a society whose every member were fully rational and faultlessly moral, could not function in a state of anarchy; it is the need of objective laws and of an arbiter for honest disagreements among men that necessitates the establishment of a government."


"If a society provided no organized protection against force, it would compel every citizen to go about armed, to turn his home into a fortress, to shoot any strangers approaching his door—or to join a protective gang of citizens who would fight other gangs, formed for the same purpose, and thus bring about the degeneration of that society into the chaos of gang-rule, i.e., rule by brute force, into perpetual tribal warfare of prehistorical savages."

"The use of physical force—even its retaliatory use—cannot be left at the discretion of individual citizens. Peaceful coexistence is impossible if a man has to live under the constant threat of force to be unleashed against him by any of his neighbors at any moment. Whether his neighbors’ intentions are good or bad, whether their judgment is rational or irrational, whether they are motivated by a sense of justice or by ignorance or by prejudice or by malice—the use of force against one man cannot be left to the arbitrary decision of another."


"A recent variant of anarchistic theory, which is befuddling some of the younger advocates of freedom, is a weird absurdity called “competing governments.” Accepting the basic premise of the modern statists—who see no difference between the functions of government and the functions of industry, between force and production, and who advocate government ownership of business—the proponents of “competing governments” take the other side of the same coin and declare that since competition is so beneficial to business, it should also be applied to government. Instead of a single, monopolistic government, they declare, there should be a number of different governments in the same geographical area, competing for the allegiance of individual citizens, with every citizen free to “shop” and to patronize whatever government he chooses.


Remember that forcible restraint of men is the only service a government has to offer. Ask yourself what a competition in forcible restraint would have to mean."

"One cannot call this theory a contradiction in terms, since it is obviously devoid of any understanding of the terms “competition” and “government.” Nor can one call it a floating abstraction, since it is devoid of any contact with or reference to reality and cannot be concretized at all, not even roughly or approximately. One illustration will be sufficient: suppose Mr. Smith, a customer of Government A, suspects that his next-door neighbor, Mr. Jones, a customer of Government B, has robbed him; a squad of Police A proceeds to Mr. Jones’ house and is met at the door by a squad of Police B, who declare that they do not accept the validity of Mr. Smith’s complaint and do not recognize the authority of Government A. What happens then? You take it from there."

Captialism never ends.  It churns along until it derails, chaos unsues, then it starts up again. 

The more efficient it works, the faster the wealth flows to a small group at the top.

When it breaks down there is a 'reset', much like a Monopoly game that ends when one person has all the loot and the other players are broke.  Debt is forgiven, money is reallocated and the game starts over.

The yield on a 1 year Greek bond is a good sign of the impending reset.  The yield froze at 1,143% some months ago.  The 2 year bond yield is also frozen.

Solon in ancient Greece oversaw an orderly reset and it worked.  When the Romans reached that point they did nothing to apply a fix and paid the price with 100 years of chaos. 

Read your history, folks, it keps repeating itself in cycles...

He takes an unsurprising tact. He starts from the premise that the government provides services, that he might want to choose another government to provide those services to him, and that if the first government stops him, it is aggressing him.

This is the result of taking non-aggression as an axiom and not a principle derived to within the context of a hierarchy of values.

Objectivists hold that government is indeed a monopoly, and understand that all real monopolies are by definition coercive. The things it holds monopoly on are not services, but actually the pre-requisites of civilization. The police, justice, and military. These are not services. They are collective by definition. They constitute the essentials of sovereignty.

There is no dichotomy between coercive monopolies and non-coersive monopolies. Monopolies are coercive. A non-coersive monopoly is simply not a monopoly. That would be a contradiction in terms. Going up our hierarchy of values, man's life is his highest value. In order to live a rational life, in a society, there needs to be a government that monopolizes three functions: police, justice, and military. These are not services. And if government attempts to monopolize anything beyond those three functions, or create other monopolies, it is gone beyond it's rationally permitted function.

"Anarcho-capitalists" are essentially committing, amongst others, the rationalistic fallacy: "Coercive monopolies are bad. The government is a coercive monopoly. The government is bad." In fact, the government, by definition, has to be a monopoly, and a particular government is only bad if it uses it's powers to create economic monopolies.

If they are, which I doubt, they must be seriously pi$$ed-off with him for attempting to expose & dismantle the cosy banking cartel's carve-up of europe via the Troika system. Aren't most of the place men 'elected' as the new technocratic leaders of the EU failed states ex-bankers, or their lieutentants? If what NF suggests were to happen (i.e. national govts. taking decision-making & responsibility back for their citizens) it would expose the banking 'troika' for what it is & break, eventually,  the endless cycle of debt rehypothecation that we're seeing - much like the situation that prevailed in Iceland Do you think the City of London bankers liked the Iceland solution?

other, different opinions on Nigel Farage from the "Don't thread on me" "Silver Bug" blog

"...Conclusion: Farage serves the City of London and is currently encouraging many millions in Britain to ‘protect the city of London’.  This is a FACT.

At best, I would describe Farage as an eccentric money-obsessed political pygmy, and at worst I would suggest he’s a clever shill move by the dark Lord Rothschild.  For those that do not understand British politics, UKIP, Farage’s party, is on the scene to mop-up disgruntled Conservatives into another hierarchical collective."



"...Conclusion: It’s clear that Nigel Farage and his political party UKIP are in full support of the corporate power known as the City of London.  He readily admits that he wants to defend ‘the City’ and four generations of his family have worked or currently work in Rothschild’s fiefdom.

So, who is Nigel Farage?  Why does he defend the usury epicentre whilst attacking the European Union?  Why is he willing to discuss the potential gains in gold?  Why does he support campaigning against the European Central Bank, and not the ‘City of London’?"

We have a two party system in the UK with Labour and Conservative.

We do have liberal democrats but they were until recently a waste of a vote.

Now we have UKIP too. That makes FOUR.

Our media doesn't give him main stream coverage. Without ZH or Capital Report I wouldn't know who he was.


Our choice of leader is cameron or some muppet look a like. At our last election even we couldn't decide between the two main parties so we got a coalition, marvelous.


So, he isn't in power in the UK as he just isn't recognised as a potential leader. That's the power of mainstream media.


Now, why don't Americans elect Schiffer or Ron Paul?

I'll bite on that one.   I was a Ron Paul supporter.  He talked the talk and walked the walk, but in the final analysis he was an ineffectual politician.  He never passed a meaningful bill in twenty years.  He never got his FED audit done.  He wasn't even on par with Nigel Farage, because Ron Paul was a nice guy.  He didn't want to offend or hurt any one person's feelings.  Even FED chairmen got respect that they didn't deserve from Ron Paul.

We need some "crazy ass liberty loving motherfuckers" to get in the faces of the worthless POS politicians that we have now.  I want guys that yell "LIAR" at the POTUS when he tells a boldface lie.  I want guys like Allen Grayson (not a big fan of his ideas) that says "You now own the Red Roof Inns".  I am not advocating fist fights in Congress, but at least give us the Octagon of Ideas.  Call a Marxist, a Marxist.  A Socialist, a Socialist.  A Warmonger, a Warmonger.   Time to show some spine like Mr. Farage on this side of the pond.

Barking jesters mean nothing except to serve as a satirical vent for public anger. They're distractions, not fixers of problems.

If Farage or Paul or anybody else with conscience and leadership potential had any chance...

As a non-Brit european I can tell you that the other 26 are ready to greet you farewell when you leave the club. WE and our govs never forced you, you know? Your Gov asked you in 1975 and never after. As soon as your Gov and YOUR Parliament - which has an electoral law that gives small parties like Dear Nigel's UKIP NO seats and voice - have the courage to either call for a referendum OR tell you why your country is still in the EU.
Note: the banks have something to do with it, both your current status and your impending changes.

Me thinketh the EU would be proud to have Norway. Here, we have none of these childish hurdles like free speech, thought, a folkdom, hard mint or other such witlessness. We reckon aught for what we're told it is - naught more, naught less. We're all the same. The nail that sticketh out shall be hammered adown. Our fellowship's of the fullest kind, and too good for the EU. Still, our Lord hath looked kindly on the EU and given it both Nobel's meed and the ESM, as 'tis on the right path, though not far away come. We can only hope the Lord will see to it that these foolhardy Engles, Saxen and Eets, as well's their evenly foolhardy aftercomers in the new world, stop thinking outside the box that so lovingly hath been built for us, not by hard work, freedom or other such childishness, but by every unthinking hand that doth what the true fellows of our Lord teach.

As a British european, perhaps you should understand that the UK govt. joined the Common market (big difference to the EU) - then rather foolishly signed the Single European Act (Margaret Thather's fault, sadly) which turned a benign tumour into galloping malignacy that has metastasized into every aspect of our lives. I feel sorry for the average EU citizen, many don't know what's coming - the people in Greece have got a whiff of it though, so too the Spaniards. I'm all for freer & easier intra-EU trade, but the EU was given an inch & is taking a mile.

The EU, (and by that I mean the Brussles oligarchy & compliant MSM lackeys) for all its bravado, are absolutely terrified of a UK withdrawal - they know, deep, deep, down, that it's a gnats cock away from implosion & take-over  by, either, the Brussels/Paris/Bonn axis, or a single-state hegemony. If you leave the EU(rope)  to its own devices, it never ends well (just review the past 150 of european history..) - about the only moderating influence of the EU right now is the UK - and thank your lucky stars for Nigel Farage - who says the 'unsayable' in the heart of the rotting edifice. I notice even a few applause after his speeches - as well as the idiot mumblers of course.

As far as UKIP not getting a seat in the UK, and this somehow being a slur on our system, might I remind you that you probably wouldn't have your grand structures now if it weren't for our 'imperfect' democracy getting Europe out of the shit 70 & 100 years ago. The mirage of democracy in the EU is being revealed day by day - the standard model is: yes you can vote, but keep voting until you give the 'right' answer.  It's a very bad joke indded.

_underscore, I thought I wrote "as a non-Brit european".


1. the EU is not the "Brussles oligarchy & compliant MSM lackeys". The EU is 27 sovereign countries that cooperate by treaties.

2. Neither the Brussel "Service Center" nor the other 26 are terrified about the UK leaving. In fact, there are several articles lately in the FT on exactly this: it's about time for the UK to decide if they want to play ball or leave the field.

3. this "hegemony" thing is typical of the political discourse in the UK (and the US). The others talk about cooperation.

4. Yes, there are Super-State proponents - but they are a minority. The majorities of the Continental Europeans want a Confederation. And this is another reasons why we are skeptical of things like a permanent President of the EU and also the reason why we did not want Tony Blair as the first one. And choose "Gollum" van Rompuy instead.

So your "imperfect" democracy saved our asses in WWII? How about the fact that you intervened in WWI, when the "thing" was a war between two democracies and two autocracies? And where you joined forces with Imperial Russia? Come on, this history debate can go forever, don't even start it. Hint: your empire had a "thing" going on with Belgium, at that time, and it was very, very keen on hampering Germany...


The question I pose is: why does the typical (60%) Briton moan so much about "the EU things" when it's HIS Government and HIS Parliament that could do something about it? When is your elected leader Cameron going to set up a referendum? Blaming the other 26 for everything is getting stale. Do you know how many laws and EU treaties have been either hampered by the Gov of the UK, or in how many major initiatives the UK bargained an opt-out?

tyler, as a brit, got to say that farage is ranting and raving in Brussels but nobody in the UK pays any notice whatsoever to what happens in the European parliament, no news agencies ever show these rants however relevant so i fear he will keep doing this kind of bombastic speech from time to time but will make 0 headway.

ukip is nowhere in uk politics unfortunately with 0 representation in UK Parliament ... no MPs at all! They have a bunch of MEPs in Europe but god knows what they are doing there as they dont believe in European parliament so its slightly pointless to be there at all! The tory party is now pushing into ukip territory which will further squeeze them, David Cameron is now pushing for a renegotiation of agreements with Europe so its put Farage in a tight spot.

I think you slightly understimate the leverage Farage has. Sure the first past the post system of electing MP`s to Westminster works against UKIP. But look how well they are doing in local council elections....well enough to cost Cammeron a lot of seats at westminster by splitting the Tory vote. Farage can push Cammeron hard to commit to a straight in/out refferendum in exchange for not contesting seats where a UKIP candidate would probably alow a Labour or Lib Dem candidate to sneak to victory. So yes, UKIP have no seats is Westminster but despite that they have more influence than is obvious.

There are 110 banks in the City owned by France and Germany which could be caught up by the tax. Most of the 1,117 foreign banks and financial services (hedge funds) firms in the capital are US-owned.''


So if Nigel is a schill for The City of London does that make him a schill for Wall St too?

Have you figured out some way of establishing "ownership" of multi-national corporations and mega-banks that has escaped me? If so, I'd like to know. Everything I've researched makes it quite clear that the whole corporate structure is well suited at hiding the real owners.

But I'm sure that someone does really own these "persons."

France and Germany have always been killing each other. The US didn't get involved in the Franco-Prussian war, and it shouldn't have got involved in WWI, either. In fact, if it weren't for US involvement in WWI enabling the allies to crush Germany and enforce an utterly ruinous peace, WWII would almost certainly never have happened. If the doughboys had told Woodrow Wilson to go fuck himself the world would probably have been a much better place.

Popular support the the US was garnered by emphasising the moral argument to the American people - and good on them.

Lift not a finger, for the Lord looketh after those that think not for themselves, but do His will. In the ESM, we see that the EU hath been given a rich blessing.

English must be your second language.  You are a rare example of how the narcissistic sociopaths view the lives of others from their view at the top of their pyramid made via a shell game.


Freedom is necessary in order for the geniuses among us to discover their gifts.  it takes time and study.  Closing the door to ingenuity is detrimental to just about everyone and the planet we live on for many reasons, medicine, art, cooking, gardening, discoveries of new and better methods would be cut of at it's knees.


The men in charge are fools.  They have gotten to great heights through means of deception and corruption.  A blueprint was created and a sketch that could come right out of SNL has unfolded because of their determination and lack of strength in character in the politicians we have before us.  This world they envision is a fantasy.  The world they will get as a result of their shenanigans will be hell for everyone.  You are not free when it is necessary to look over your shoulder when you are walking down the street.  Repercussions of these delusional rich boys will be decades of conflict for reasons no one can remember.  They'll realize why brotherly love has kept mankind from self destructing but rather create communities and allow the majority to rule.


The media outlets and their portrayal of the world we live in has led us all to believe it's not as bad as it sounds.  That will change soon enough.
