The “sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
Flying around the corner came Henny Penny screaming, “Did you hear? Did you hear the news? What are we to do?”
Fear gripped them like a slaughter house.
Panic swept over them so that each breath seemed to be their last.
Cocky Locky and Ducky Daddles flew in to the meeting.
“All the others are coming too. We don’t know what to do now or what this means for our future.”
Once all the fowl gathered, feathers were flying like dandelions in the wind. The quacking, crowing and cockadoodledooing were so loud you could hear it down the street.
The questions were endless. The answers seemed even further away.
But the biggest one of all was, “Who do we turn to now?”
The hen house overnight became an open door to the unknown.
And that’s the way it was last week when the UK left the EU.
You’d a thought the world had joined the chicken coop.
Researching the EU, their founders and the history involved was my next move and here are some of the highlights of what I found.
- The EU was set up after WWII aiming to end bloodshed and war. A noble effort for everyone to get along with each other.
- An all-inclusive system of countries was established in areas of trade, economic stability, and communal advancement. In other words, the birth of Socialism.
- Currency, called the Euro was set up where each country involved would pool their funds to aid the necessary benefits.
- The Treaty of Paris in 1951 set up an authoritarian rule to govern and control the people.
So who was the EU? What countries were involved and who would lead this unified, let’s get along with everybody declaration?
The European Economic Community was: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Germany. Many others have joined but these were the founding nations.
The leaders of the this group were made up of 11 white men who were Prime Ministers, Foreign Ministers, Economic advisers, Diplomats and Chancellors. Winston Churchill was one of them.
Reading their history it is apparent the majority based their platforms on a left winged, liberal ideology which became the foundation for the EU’s agenda.
For over 7 decades, the EU has become Europe’s guide, controller and administrator. Never mind that it doesn’t nor did it ever really work.
Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
Go figure that one.
You can only take for so long what people have to give. Once it runs out, there is nothing left.
Now the UK has voted to leave the EU of course the panic is “where will the money come from to do anything?”
The bottom line is also immigration. The people of the UK finally got fed up with the Muslim terrorist invading and killing their own. So much for “let’s all get along.”
So how did a system like this last for so many years? Or why hadn’t anyone figured it out before now the evil that lurked within it would finally rear its ugly head?
And last but not least, what happens now?
To be continued….
