Long Live The Euro: 1) Basic History of Romans & Franks

December 26, 2015

Marine Le Pen proposes to go back to the Franc. This is rather ironical for a nationalist, as the Euro, a French invention, extends French power. However, as it is, in the present international context, the Euro is not functioning optimally, and indeed, seriously hindering the French Republic. Nevertheless, I will demolish the stale anti-Euro arguments imagined by servants of the USA’s plutocratic order, the ones Le Pen is following like a bleating sheep. There is a glaring problem with the Euro, indeed, but not the one talked about by those who dislike the Euro. And that problem has an obvious remedy (long found by the USA), a change in the mandate of the European Central Bank.

In a nutshell, the Euro was conceived as a top down mechanism to force one more unification device inside Europe. The idea is to create problems which only further European unification can solve. The Euro is functioning correctly that way, albeit too slowly. And no wonder: at this point, European finance is led by an ex-partner at Goldman Sachs, a Wall Street bank, under the mandate of making the Euro a store of value (even if kills the European economy). That has to be changed. Along… American lines.

Those who don’t understand the map above, should not talk about the Euro. As we will see, though, they do talk about the Euro, while not minding whether, or not,France and Germany were actually part of the same polity, for half a millennium.

(For the election of Holy Roman emperor in 1519, the two candidates were the Duke of Burgundy, ruler of the Netherlands and Loraine, and the King of France, Francois I; both were native French speakers, born not far from Paris. The former became emperor as Charles V.)

Those who don’t know European history, including hordes of American pseudo-intellectuals, can only talk foolishly about the Euro. That’s the whole idea: they are supposed to make us all stupid. Once we are stupid enough, we will be eager to serve them, or so they have observed.

That despicable horde of greedy disinformers and impudent liars includes one of the leading (diminutive) bulls, Milton Friedman, bullying his way into a thicket of absurdities which he himself erected.

Friedman learned nothing, absolutely nothing, from the Second World War. That, too, is no accident. It’s a disease frequently found in American Jews. It’s not just the usual francophobia. There is a much more sinister mechanism at work. American Jews are supposed to know nothing much about the Second World War, except there was a big bad “The Holocaust”, and, somehow, the French were involved.

Why so ignorant? Preservation of their own Jewish sanity. If American Jews knew more of the history of the Second World War, they would have to explain why they did nothing, while their brethren and relatives were mass assassinated in Europe.

In particular, American Jews would have to explain why they did nothing, while racist American plutocrats were totally, massively supporting and enabling Hitler and Mussolini. Where was Friedman then? Well, he was employed by Roosevelt’s National Resources Committee (on which he more or less spit later, naturally).

Fortunately the Nazis and their enemies, the French, did learn from WWII what had to be learned. And what they learned, is that they had to unify.

Whereas, it is telling that people who allegedly claim to care about holocausts in Europe, want to divide Europe some more, when it is precisely those divisions which caused the holocausts. The basic flaw of Eastern Europe, where most American Jews are from, is that a divided, divisive, grotesque patchwork of little authorities at each other’s throats, some of this nation, some from another, some from one religion, some from one other, some from a language, or sect, some from another language, or sect.

The first fact of European history is that those who invented the modern usage of the word Europe, the Franks, conquered, unified, and… (to a great extent) created Germany. Including the German language! (The Franks, being themselves Germans, were in excellent position to bark out orders to other Germans.)

To understand the Euro, one has to go all the way to the first Roman State, and why it failed spectacularly:

The Roman empire’s border inside Germany, anchored on the Rhine and Danube, was too long, too fractal, hard to defend. The one and only solution was to conquer all of Europe (and make a short border across the European peninsula). The only Roman who decided to do this, Julius Caesar, was assassinated on the eve of his departure at the head of the most formidable army Rome ever had. After that unfortunate event, the assassination of the leader of the Populares, Roman plutocracy took over enough to impose its agenda. Roman plutocracy was more interested to exploit the Roman people, rather than to call on the Republican spirit to make Rome safer, and more sustainable.

Actually, the history of the next five centuries of Rome showed that Roman plutocracy preferred to be invaded by barbarians, rather than to call back the Roman Republic (analogies with what is going on today, are invited). In the end, it was the Franks who brought back enough Roman republican elements to progress beyond Greco-Roman civilization, and, later, thoroughly destroy the invading Islamists (once again, comparisons with today jump to mind).

As it sank in ever thicker plutocracy, the first Roman State never conquered Germania. The result was half-baked military solutions, beating the German hordes back, each time they raided the much richer Roman empire. It brought constant, expensive wars which Rome could not afford. It also brought catastrophe, when the Huns, charging through the steppe, all the way from Mongolia, pressured the Goths, and the latter decided to take refuge inside the Roman empire. It was a refugee crisis second to none, yet the refugees came in, fully armed and battle trained, and the Christian dazed Roman emperors confronting the problem, may have longed so much towards the apocalypse, promised by the Bible, that they may have spurred it along. (Once again, comparison with today, are invited.)

However, the Franks turned Augustus’ strategy on its head. As soon as it succeeded the first Roman State, the Second Foundation of the Roman State, the empire of the Franks, threw overboard Augustus’ stupid advice, to leave Germania alone. The Franks relentlessly pursued the conquest of all of Germany, and more. It took three centuries. Charlemagne, Carlus Magnus, finished the job.

The preceding map of Europe is not understood by despicable people such as Milton Friedman and his ilk, who are paid not to meditate upon it (supposing they ever came across it). Friedman is paid to entertain the idea that Germany is bad for France.

Low intellectual lives such as Friedman typically don’t know that, under the Franks, freedom of cult was extended to all those who did not have a Cult of Death (thus the safe Sufi practice of Islam was tolerated). They don’t know that the Franks three times, earlier than Charlemagne, broke three massive Islamist, Cult of Death invasions, and that the Damascus Arab Caliphate fell consequently, having lost its armies (750 CE). They know nothing, these haters of Europe, and still they talk, exuding their venom, because they are paid to do so: it helps the American empire and its overlord, global plutocracy, to tell the world and themselves that the Europeans are self-destructive idiots. At this point the Friedman-Krugman venom is feeding Marine Le Pen (who has opportunistically jumped on it; as a Member of the European Parliament, she probably knows better; in any case she could only hope to implement her program if she had an absolute majority at the French National Assembly).

The Roman Currency failed, because Rome did not conquer Eastern Europe:

The Romans ran out of precious metals in the Third Century: using the technology they had, the mines were exhausted. By 300 CE, Rome, under emperors Aurelian and then Diocletian, had switched to a complicated mix of Fiat Currency and command economy. As the state, weakened by plutocracy, was not strong enough, the Roman Fiat Currency suffered inflation (although the Roman gold currency would not, and was used for another millennium).

China had the same problem, lack of precious metals and invented the ultimate Fiat Currency, paper money, in the Seventh Century to circumvent it (Bolivian silver traded by Spain would solve the Chinese problem nearly a millennium later).

The Franks solved the argentum/argent problem the old fashion way: they did what the Romans did not find the force to do. The Franks conquered Eastern Europe, where the silver mines were. Suddenly, there was enough money to operate the economy again, and, by 1000 CE, the Franks were the richest per person and per unit of energy (my AWE), in the world (contrarily to what the “China-on-top” school of thought has it).

Moods Are Most Fundamental

December 13, 2015

Moods are the theorems of emotional systems, but also constitute the chemical milieu in which new logic is elaborated.

Moods can be addressed, they have to addressed (although traditional scholarship does not consider their nature, which is different, and more basic than that of ideas).

Racism is a mood. Anti-Semitism is a mood. Anti-Judaism is a mood. Religious fanaticism around a superstition is a mood. The fanatical Catholicism of the Middle Ages was a mood. Irrationalism is a mood. Nationalism is a mood. Feeling that nature can be exploited relentlessly is a mood. Sexism is a mood. That the “Free Market” can think for all and any, is a mood too. Conservativism is a mood, so is progressivism (I have to introduce neologism; neologizing is itself a mood, mathematical research an example!)

If nationalism is a mood, so can be… anti-nationalism. And that, in turn, pushed to extremes, can bring a backlash (remember Henry Ford’s book “The International Jew”, which impelled a new mood, which, in turn, fed mightily Adolf Hitler and the hyper nationalism he jumped on).

Feed The Aliens, Hate Xenophobia: What Could Go Wrong?

Feed The Aliens, Hate Xenophobia: What Could Go Wrong?

The Plutocratic Press Hates “Populism”:

The Economist had a “lead article” this week “Playing With Fear” with Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, and Victor Orban on the cover. The drawings represented them with ugly folds of fat hanging from their swollen faces, below their arrogant, hostile gazes.

This was a strange mix: Orban is the solidly elected Prime Minister of Hungary, in power since 2010. When he decided to protect Hungary’s borders, a few months ago, much less than the USA or Britain does, his popularity jumped up (to around 50% approval), but media such as The Economist lambasted him.

Marine Le Pen, a lawyer, head and founder of France’s modern National Front, and an elected European MP, is the major female politician in Europe (and Marine Le Pen is not to the right of Margaret Thatcher: so why does The Economist hates her so? Because the National Front is hostile to the international plutocratic world order? With Marine Le Pen in power, no more “austerity”?).

In the elections of December 13, 2015, the National Front, opposed by all and everybody, gained 300 elected representatives in the regions of France.

Anti-Nationalism, Or The Mood Of Hating The Natives Until Their Self-Genocide:

Some claim that anybody which prefers the natives over the aliens is bad, and smacks of an inferior moral sort. This is a curious mood. One would think that the fear of aliens (“xenophobia”) is not necessarily bad when confronting an invasion by an alien, inimical mood, and strangers harboring it.

Imagine that North America had been ruled by Native governments and they had welcomed aliens there. Say Europeans, bringing an entire civilization and religion to rule and marginalize the Natives. What mood would justify this? A suicidal mood?

The argument can be made that nationalism is an absolute evil. Nationalism is a mood that led to tragedy. In Europe, that argument has merit, considering the Twentieth Century. And those who built Europe rode the mood that nationalism was evil, to the hilt.

However, a central, global government such as that of the European Union, can work against the interest of the European People.

Watch the European Union as it is, carefully: who profits from it most? Most European nations’ citizens are so destitute, that they cannot even reproduce enough to insure the perennity of the local population, the Natives.

The European environment has become so toxic that Europeans cannot afford children, and, or, do not see a future for their children.

Craftily, the powers that be import new populations which can fit in the mold which they prepared better.

Since the crisis of 2008, the USA’s central bank created ten times more money for the economy than the European Central Bank did. Why? Because the constitution of the ECB cares only about the value of money, not the value of the economy. There again, a few profit, and the Natives are invited to unemployment.

There was a dramatic case of a central government working against the interest of the population: the Roman State of the Late Empire. Obsessed by the mood of not taxing the hyper rich, and by the mood of imposing a Christian apocalypse, the central government made treaties with a succession of invaders, and that led to the near complete collapse of central governance, invasions, collapse of economy, law, society, demography.

What is alien is not necessarily superior, and should not be systematically welcome over the interest of the Natives. Actually the United Nations Charter recognizes explicitly the primacy of the Natives over invasive aliens.

So who profits with the mood that aliens are always to be preferred to natives? Well, those who want to exploit, steal, disposes, spoil the natives, and make them powerless, obviously. Thus international, global plutocracy, master of media everywhere, is the one which props the mood that aliens are most sacred and natives most spoiled and morally dubious, especially when they feel they should improve their condition. OK, enough of these sad songs, as Ludwig Van said:

Optimistic Change Of Mood On Climate:

Optimism on the CO2 crisis is justified because:

1) The accord was adopted unanimously. Laurent Fabius, president of the Conference, said he had the accord in front of him, asked, solemnly, in the last-minute, whether any of the 195 delegates, and other in the assistance of thousands, had any objection. He said he heard none. Then he said the accord was accepted.

So exit the mood of CO2 denialism, forever. First UNIVERSAL change of mood.

Second UNIVERSAL change of mood: it’s agreed that one should stick as much as possible to 1.5 degree Centigrade. Thus the crisis is officially worse than even scientists said a few weeks ago. (This will allow scientists to dare tell the truth much more.)

Third, the climate accord is an important step ahead in world government, because of the gravity of the matter and the unanimous embrace of a giant, philosophical embrace of progress and altruism (countries such as Russia, Canada, profit from the CO2 crisis, long term, so they were most reasonable).

Now lots of work has to be done. And the mood of anger has to be called to bear as needed if things don’t move. For example the USA tried to sabotage the accord at the last moment. Everybody bent over backwards to please the world’s richest country, as the USA used it’s usual blackmail, exactly the same as in the 1990s, under Clinton. But the French were ready: they had a significant ally, China. Second Germany can’t get away with coal craziness, and should present a plan out of that immediately. And so on.

Next year the COP 22 is in Morocco, which has Africa’s greatest wind farm, and the world’s greatest solar farm… And works in close collaboration with France and Spain…

The regional elections in France demonstrated a significant advance of the National Front. However, it was blunted by a superb coalition of all plutocratic powers and its obsequious servants: all the media including The Economist, to all the politicians, from the European Parliament, to the French “right” and the French “left” conspired to brandish the National Front as treacherous, the bane of civilization.

But what is a civilization sick enough, that it cannot even reproduce itself?

A contradiction in adjecto: something that will disappear. Merkel, leader of Germany, in her despair, accepted more than a million refugees in 2015, because Germany’s population, once 83 millions is now only 79. And what did the wonderful socialists who lead France do? Reduce financial support to families with many children. It is as if they were scared that there are too many French citizens.The same syndrome is all over Europe, so the population of the Natives in many countries is collapsing.

The mood in Europe is going to get much uglier, because only this will allow to move in the right directions, and those are antagonistic to what people have been conditioned to believe by the powers that be.

Full Frontal Naked Nationalism

May 27, 2014

Or When Nationalism Is Better Than The Alternative.

The Danes self define as the happiest people in the world: sometimes it seems the government chew their food for them (the Danish tax rate goes up to 80%). Danes are worried “Brussels” will put an end to that. Whatever that is. In truth, alien foreigners have exhausted their welcome. On May 25, 2014, 27% voted for the nationalist anti-European far right.

That’s the same score as Marine Le Pen got in France.

French President Soon? Careful, She Bites

French President Soon? Careful, She Bites

What’s going on? Well, each time extremism rises, it’s because there are very good reasons for this to happen. Clearly the status quo ante is unacceptable in Europe. Something I have said myself for years. And not just in Europe. A revolution is needed, and fast. More and more of We The People are arriving at the same conclusion. That’s good and necessary.

I still am an extreme internationalist. For me, for decades, nationalism was the definition of hatred and war. I was also against imperialism. I was once personally attacked by hyper nationalistic fascists, with lethal force (an IED).

Apparently, they saw my broad minded considerations as an existential threat. Nationalists tend to be mentally fragile.

Meanwhile I discovered that being against blue sky meant preferring the blackness of space. To my dismay, having a high minded internationalist mien is an invitation to victimization. It’s quite a bit related to the attitude of the Jews vis a vis Hitler in the 1930s: it’s not because you turn the other cheek, each time it gets slapped, that morality, let alone survival, progresses. Instead, the pacifist sheep will get a concussion, and finish in the incinerator.

Ukraine, of course, is an example when nationalism is turning into a good force. Only nationalism is strong enough to resist the traditional dictatorial instincts of the Kremlin. Better plenty of nationalism, than morbidity below a crazed autocrat’s boot.

In France the national Front just won the European election, becoming, on this occasion, France’s first party. It’s a victory for Marine Le Pen’s strategy over her dad’s grumpy style.

One would guess that I am horrified, as I am as progressive as they come.

But not so. Instead I am amused: progress is not always where it’s supposed to be.

Sometimes, progress takes a circuitous route. It’s because plutocratic Rome collapsed that the Franks could take over, and legislate a much more advanced civilization: much fewer death penalties, no more slavery, total religious freedom (after more than a century of religious terror).

If plutocratic Rome had not collapsed,  the barbarity of Greco-Roman civilization would have persevered. Only a radical reboot, the one the Franks imposed, could relaunched Western civilization in a sustainable form.

Another example is the occupation of France by the Nazis: it actually civilized the Nazis to the point that collaboration with France was forced onto Hitler by his colleagues to the point the Nazi dictator had to agree to it, although he argued that would make France win the war (as France’s industry was supposed to fabricate daily necessities, while Germany concentrated on weapons).

The end result is that France and Germany started to unify in 1948, something that certainly would not have happened if France had not declared war to Germany in 1939. War is also a debate.

In 2012, I saw a debate between Marine Le Pen, and the top French economy pundit. Marine Le Pen described basically how the fractional reserve system worked, and intoned that this was completely wrong. However, the cocksure pundit     excoriated her, with conventional wisdom. He claimed she understood nothing, had no knowledge of finance whatsoever.

A week later, the same pundit debated economics with Melanchon, head of the leftist opposition to the Socialist Parti, the Front de Gauche. Melanchon told the pundit he had been wrong, and Marine Le Pen was right.

And so do I.

On a related subject, Marine Le Pen has been very loud and clear that the Euro was too high. That, too, is correct. The high Euro has been killing the part of French industry that makes mass items (whereas Italy, Switzerland and Germany long focused on higher end products).

It’s of course worse for many other Euro countries.

Many European countries have been de-industrializing. It’s not because people there are dumb and lazy. Far from it. In truth Europe invents much, and other exploits those inventions.

How?

Well, Europe is open to the world economically, a bit as Athens was. and Pericles beautifully boasted in his famous funeral oraison. However openness is not everything: Athens was defeated and democracy came back, under the attenuated form of representative democracy, only 23 centuries later.

European intellectuals themselves have excoriated Europe, as if it were the source of all evils. Confusing the Nazis and their enemies the French is a case in point, chronic in the enslaved USA.

And yet, what is the truth? The rest of the world has not played nice with Europe.

Take an outrageous example. European governments have been buying from the USA. The converse, though, is forbidden by American law (except under special circumstances).

The conspiracy against Europe is deep and wide. Corrupt American industrialists, working hand in hand with the government of the USA and corrupt leaders overseas (example of such corruptocrats would be Major, Schroeder, and Blair) conspired to impose a war plane, the F35.

The F35 is the world’s worst plane: it has no better performance than the F105 “Thunderchief”, a 50 year old plane that failed in the Vietnam war. The F35 can’t go fast, it can’t carry much, it can’t accelerate more than 4 gs (the Rafale does 10gs), and, although labelled a “stealth” plane, it is fully visible to Russian and Chinese VHF radar. It’s also the most expensive military program ever: half a trillion dollars, and counting.

That turkey prevents the furthering of a European superiority fighter, although Airbus‘ Typhoon/Eurofighter  and Dassault fighters are known to be the world’s two best fighter bombers (they both take out the American superiority fighter, the F22 Raptor).

So hundreds of thousands high tech defense jobs are going to the USA, instead of Europe, on that project alone. Just because European politicians have been on the take. At least, nationalism would stop such an absurdity.

To stop all this non sense, some nationalism is needed. Some will say, as some French philosophers did, that Europe is dead, long live the world.

Yet, it’s not so simple: as I explained, both North America and Russia have been founded on maximally exploitative philosophies, which have triumphed.

Europe’s sustainable philosophy has taken a beating, and the weaker Europe gets, the more of beating sustainability gets.

So this is not just about Europe, it’s about sustainability and diversity.

Out of 750 European MPs, around 140 are Europhobes. The Danes and the British UKIP despise Marine Le Pen. Yet, if they want to have any influence in the European Parliament, the Europhobes will have to find common grounds, thus valuable complaints.

The force of democracy is the wealth of viewpoints it brings.

And never forget that democracy without force is nothing.  A six year old British      boy was found drowned and unconscious at the bottom of a pool of the giant “Royal Caribbean” ship “Independence of the Seas”.

Well, there is no independence, even on the high seas. Even for a British boy, whatever the UKIP feels like bellowing about. A French helicopter flew across the ocean, and picked up the unconscious boy to provide him with state of the art treatment (top French hospitals use methods akin to hibernation, as was done with Michael Schumacher).

It’s a small world, and in a small world there are no borders, only limits beyond which outrage turns to violence. And the worst is, that some of this violence is necessary, and the more necessary, the more violent it will become. Europe, and the world, has to march ahead, or die by the wayside.
