Farage On The 'Scientology-Like' Cult Of The Euro

Tyler Durden's picture


In an extended discussion with various pro- and con- European Parliamentarians, everyone's favorite (well, most forthright, for sure) British MEP, Nigel Farage, opined on entering the hallowed halls of Europe's Hogwarts-like hub in Brussels that he is surprised:

"After five (soon to be six) nations already bailed out, that so few people inside these institutions are even prepared to contemplate that there might be something wrong with the Euro project"

adding that he feels that:

"he is surrounded by some weird cult - that, even after disaster, continue to believe"

The cult is real, and it's a group of people, whatever one chooses to call them, very few in number, and routinely getting together to play mini-gods and estimate what's best for humanity, on both a collective and individual level, although they're exempt, mostly, from their own decisions.

They meet constantly to judge the state of planet earth and adjust their figures on a sustainable population, resource allocation/distribution and other matters they deem imperative enough to drain their time.

But fret not, because their ability to over-estimate their own influence and power, when it comes to anything as chaotic and entropic as the universe and mankind can't possibly be overstated.

Anyone who denies that there's a very tiny elite who regularly meat to beat can't possibly be attuned to reality, very observant, very intelligent, or a combination of all three.

It's literally the worst open secret given so many slips of the tongue and an inability on their part to even come up with a plan to meet that's creative enough to not be discovered.

Farage's comparison between the Church of Eurology and the Scientologists isn't as facile as you might first think.

Did you know that there are 97 Jean Monnet Centres worldwide, indoctrinating young people with the Eurologist's dogma ?


Anyway as a side issue, I'd recommend this article, 'The Dichotomy of our Times'

British Conservative: "You offer no alternative"

Farage: "How about global free trade?"


Reminds me of Jim Grant with Maria Bartiromo

"Capitalism is an alternative for what we have now. I highly recommend it."



So sad/scary that people leading the world just don't get it.

Nigel is stating the obvious and these Hale Bopp Scientology like idiots are oblivious to the house being on fire.

They just want to keep their cushy EUSSR job with gala lunchoens and dinners plus a cushy paycheck.   They are like Politburo apparachniks like the US Senate.

TruthInSunshine, I get spooked by it all.  its all right there in the open, clear to see, each of those pro Euro Weenies was talking about "hope" and use words like "firewall". For god's sake they can't even use appropriate terms, there is no fire and there is no wall, its a problem of debt and corruption.  Good post by the way, I felt compelled to respond.

It used to seem bizarre to me, but in reality, it's always gone on, even if it was on a more parochial or local basis in past times.

With technological advancement, it's easier for them to communicate, meet and expand the scale of the geography they wish to essentially control through their 'gift' of benevolent planning to the entire planet.

These type of people used to be referred to as despots, and their motives were invariably presumed to be evil. Today, many of them are referred to as philanthropists, and many are bestowed near-saint status by a fawning media (which they control, coincidentally; as in via direct funding), and their intentions are presumed to be consistent with "the good of mankind." They're selfless and charitable heroes, even if they rarely openly discuss anything that approximates specifics.

In their world, it's not only necessary, but their moral duty to....oh, as just a few examples.... inform a particular people that are allegedly sovereign that they only have the 'right' to have one child (they'll even impose sterilization if their goal by the numbers doesn't materialize via voluntary compliance), decide which parts of the world should (for whatever unknown reasons) have high rates of inflation (aka debasement of living standards) imposed on their citizenty, or to measure and weigh the pros and cons of any given destructive war, and decide whether to green-light it based on their very serious & precise assessment of whether its consequences will ultimately 'add up' to a net gain or loss for humanity based on their virtuous goals.

There's something to be said for allowing liberty and acknowledging a genrous heaping of individual rights on individuals, even though history gets quite messy at times (a rational and compelling argument can be put forth that suppressing such liberty and individual rights leads to inevitably "messier" outcomes).

The road to hell is paved with good intentions (even assuming many or most of their intentions are even "good" in the first place).

As much as admire Farage and his great speeches, he shows poor behaviour. He only seemed to grasp it wasnt a debate, rather a summary of different viewpoints, halfway through.

Really? Farage was the only one speaking english. The other four assholes were speaking in tongues, convincing the proles the God only speaks through them...just like any other high priest. At the end, the 12-month prognosis was 4 votes for unicorns from 4 assholes speaking utter jibberish, and 1 voice of reason from the only person who was speaking plainly.

That's a good one. This party, the FDP, is as far away from liberalism as Francois Hollande. Just in the other direction, towards crony capitalism.
