5.0 out of 5 stars Well-researched, pragmatic and must be read, 7 Nov. 2007
This review is from: The Great Deception: The Secret History of the European Union (Hardcover)
I am currently re-reading this book 3 years on. It still reads well although the immense shock of the first read has obviously gone.

In my opinion, it is useful to see the EU simplistically - for the purposes of projecting its behaviours - as a club run by bullies/ a gang whose rules are those you have to sign up to in order to join - you don't get to make any changes to the rules and can't look for any charity from bullies. How do bullies act? Well, one key area is: What's yours is theirs and what's theirs is theirs - and as you do more of their bidding, the lies and deceit make it difficult for you to get out. But all along your resources are being drained until you have to find more money from those who can least afford it - in the case of the EU it's us the poor citizens!

If you can see it as a people-focused organisation with it's ground-rules based on bullying, then you quickly realise that whatever the well-meaning of the original idea for European union (although the form of supranationalism is unattractive), the project is a monster that will bring into law even more draconian measures against the population. Soon the already scripted law of treason will be set up as a regulation in law if you speak (or 'think) against the EU.

We are all criminals now because we will all fall foul of at least one of the hundreds of thousands of new laws that have alreday been accepted without debate onto our statute books. The law is set up purely to part us from any money we might have left - not to punish criminals - and to set us all up as criminals so that the state can shackle us. Without the shackles and the armed police how will they be able to quell an up-rising against the impending crack-down on us all.

Political and monetary union? What is the politics of the EU? Do we know? Are we allowed to know? What about the religion of the EU? What is the EU - it's not a democracy - so what is the term for the structure we live with now? It has no tolerance as it imposes its will on everyone so what religion, politics, salary, housing etc will I be allowed to have before I become an enemy of the state?
