Nigel Farage On "Wholesale, Violent Revolution" In Europe

Tyler Durden's picture


In a little under two minutes, Nigel Farage sums up the utter farce that "the religion" that Europe has become. He explains, his fear is that what will break up the Euro, "is not the economics of it, but wholesale, violent revolution," in the Mediterranean, and that is "all so unnecessary!" Speaking at Simon Black's Offshore Tactics workshop, the so-called modern day Cicero goes on to point out that France's Hollande is "the number 1 among idiots running countries around the world," and worries that Merkel's pending election means there will be more and more 'tough talk and action' as she shows the people she is in charge. Simply put he warns, alongside Ron Paul, that if you have money in European banks, "Get your money out," because, "when the next phase of the disaster comes, they will come for you."

There's virtually only about two dozen prominent people that understand and talk candidly about the current issues. There's millions of them telling you that all's OK, don't worry, be happy.

Nobody. Because he doesn't suck as an event organizer.

It's when he puts pen to paper and talks about his super sekrit CIA past, or raves how things are sooo much better living on a pig farm in rural Cambodia that he gets ridiculed. Or when he talks about Chile being stable and secure compared to America without a trace of historic irony... Good lord.

This was a great event with great speakers. He should stick to organizing and give up pontificating.

Any links to more of it?   At the end of that video I see Peter Schiff (thank you Lauren Lyster for introducing truth seekers to the general public) on the left, and Ron Paul on the right.  I'm sure Rigel was not the only man speaking truth at that event.

I'll second that.  Someone below posted a link to Nigel speaking at the Manning Networking Conference; I'd like to see the rest of this clip, though.  It's a shame to reduce Farage, who usually does build arguments, to a set of soundbites, however clever they are.  After all, if Tyler and others are going to call him a modern Cicero, his orations ought to be available in full, not in excerpts.

He gave a similar speech at the Manning Networking Conference recently (MNC 2013), and several parts were identical (word for word in speech and delivery) to the one in Santiago.

Just imagine the scene: Ron Paul, Jim Rogers, Nigel Farage, Jim Rickards, and Peter Schiff, all on stage at the same time, Saturday night, in Santiago, Chile.

Fortunately we hired a professional film crew to capture it all on video, and we’ll be making that available soon.


I look forward to that!

A rural pig farm in Cambodia?
It's tough, kid, but it's life!

I'm on a pig farm in Cambodia,

didn't forget to pack a wife. 


Seriously though, that sounds like quite an adventure..."Tonight after nightsoil is made, we eat long pig longtime, Joe!"

"the utter farce that "the religion" that Europe has become" I probably missed that. you mean the remark about the EU anthem? well, even some clubs have anthems, flags and things like that

strikes me as silly that singing "Rule Britannia" and "God save the Queen" is good old healthy nationalism while wawing a blue flag with golden stars is a "religion". there is actually a word for this attitude: jingoism. it's a good old tradition, in some parts

anyway, his message is clear: "get your money out of the eurozone banks" - by that I must presume he means "bank with the City of London banks" (you know, the hyperhypothecating megabanks)

"Wholesale, Violent Revolution in Europe" (with Europe he means the eurozone, not the UK) - on this, I have a small personal observation: I see British pundits and politicians way more nervous about violence and revolutions than their continental counterparts

here, here and "amen." i agree "these are delicate matters as well" ones that require both REAL solutions (natural gas, solar, cloud computing) AND attention to detail (execution, manifestation, repetition, results.) the rhetoric is of course dramatic as mine was yesterday (in my world)...but towards what end? what is the purpose of the rhetoric? "to build a more perfect union"? (CLEARLY WE HAVE WE THE PEOPLE IN THIS MAN!) in other words "what's the plan, dude." obviously and i'm sure you know full well Ghordius that "the planners" are what are derisively called the "technocrats" in these here parts (and over there as well.) can't speak for the approaches being made but clearly they have a very profound understanding of the issues at hand "and are tasked with dealing with them." (obviously any thoughts you have in this regard would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps at the TOP of the article...but hey, cheap seats are still seats.) the statement (the state?) "they're coming for you" can mean many things...perhaps he got carried away as i often do...but i think what we're all looking for here is calm, rational conversations of a "way forward" that will make a positive and obvious difference to the most "and then come what may." the best i can offer is what works here...namely, crazily if you will..."what worked before" and what is claimed here regularly as the end of world namely securitized products that generate generate growth without inflation and "a light touch when it comes to regulation" (meaning something understandable) AND A STRONG TOUCH WHEN IT COMES TO LAW. (for nothing is lighter than the rule of law.) the Japanese have a saying which i'm sure Banzai knows better than I but it is something to the effect of "to copy something is to pay that something it's greatest compliment." we in the West demand (as the ancient Greeks did) so much in the way of "original thinking" (and the honors and emulents that come with such glories) in all ways there is a simplicity to...dare i say...in plagiarism...as ILLEGAL as it is. "Pragamatism" works too...see what works...work your way through the problem, follow through, follow up. the title of the book was "Wealth of NATIONS" not "Wealth of Me." in other words "this crazy Scotsman Adam Smith devised a way to pay for the debts of the State" not for people to become billionaires and just start "blowing up the world" though obviously the riches of his ideas have proven simply staggering...even now. "the law might be an ass" (as our American Vice President famously said back in the 90's) BUT SO ARE TAXES, BUREAUCRACY, THE ARROGANCE OF THE STATE AND HAVING TO PAY FOR IT ALL. as we all know "payments are done personally"...unless of course we're talking something of a more...sinister nature.

Yes, but they won't have to cross any borders to do so.  Counter intelligence is the US a joke, the guy in charge of hunting spies for the FBI through the end of the Cold War was a Russian spy, and  they're not any brighter today then they were a decade ago.  Fascist thugs tend to like amassing huge stashes of weapons in convenient centralized locations and then hanging an ironic virtual Molon Labe sign on the front gate.  Crazy Q'Daff wasn't so crazy when be bombed the Benghazi DHS 'R US.  Syria - rinse & repeat with some really dirty bombs.  If TSHTF, Janet will need the armed drones for DHS strikes on Ft.

Europeans need to understand AGAIN what tyranny means... apparently, they forgot what the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Italy's Mussolini and Spain's Franco did to them...

And where is there NOT statism?

They're fucked not so much because of statism, but rather, they're fucked because they're aging and they have severely declining natural capital (natural resources, esp energy).

This is all about stepping back away from the ledge of unsustainable living.  Statism had tried to block this out of fear of what it would to to social order (the order that keeps the elites in power).

It'll all correct by Mother Nature's hands...

Both correlate with the spiritual decadence of a people which marks the decline of a civilisation. Libertarianism is as much a symptom of it as is socialism. The 'individual' versus 'society'? Both are historical anathema. There is no turning back.
