“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel told a gathering of leaders in Berlin. Moreover, she said that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens on matters of immigration, borders or even sovereignty.
President Macron, speaking before the German legislature the Bundestag, was reported by the U.K. Express as saying that “France and Germany should be at the center of the emerging New World Order.”
“The Franco-German couple,” said Macron, has “the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace.” The world must reject nationalism and populism, he said, because “nationalism is treason.”
Nationalism is what prompted a majority in the United Kingdom to vote in 2016 for “Brexit,” to exit being a colony of European Union “Eurocrats” that by then were imposing on Great Britain 63 percent of all its laws and regulations. In particular, Britain was losing control of its borders because any EU residents had the right to move to England, without British approval, and collect welfare at British taxpayer expense for the rest of their lives.
Jean Monnet, founder of today’s European Union, as Craig R. Smith and I quote from his personal diaries in our book “Money, Morality & The Machine,” wrote: “Europe’s nations should be guided towards the Super-state without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.”
The dogma of the EU’s ruling elite is that they “must not listen to the will of their citizens,” and ultimately not let their subjects change the collectivist global government by voting.
Macron and Merkel have agreed to create an EU military independent of NATO, with the apparent aim of not allowing any other member of the EU to leave. Merkel said that “the times when we could fully rely on others are to some extent over.”
