NYT Finally Reports Eurosocialist Autocracy
It's gotten so obvious that even the New York Times has taken notice. Europe is no longer governed by old-fashioned electoral democracies. That fact is even acknowledged by the European Union, which admits that, yes, Europe does have a "democracy deficit." Czech President Vaclav Klaus has seriously compared the EU to the Soviet Union. The cynics now call it the EuroSoviet Union.
What the EU fails to admit is that its Ruling Class routinely tells endless lies to the voters, with no fear of consequences. The Ruling Class controls most of the media, including the UK Guardian and the BBC -- the Pravda and Istvestiya of modern Britain.
The resulting massive corruption, ideological rigidity, leftwing insanity, taxpayer exploitation, and sheer misgovernment is unbelievable; surrendering to Islamic radicalism is just a small part of it.
When Prime Minister Gordon Brown ran for election last year, a motherly lady asked him about out-of-control immigration from Talibanistan. Gordon Brown smiled like a Cheshire Cat, got back in his shiny limo, and called her "an old, bigoted woman." It went on YouTube, and ole' Gordon lost. Without YouTube he might still be in power.
The newspapers used to do that for us.
In London the Parliament has become powerless, like the Queen. European. Parliaments are Hollywood fronts. Voting for your MP is like voting for Da Mare in Chicago: You know it can't make any difference.
The big surprise is that the New York Times has finally reported Europe's "democracy deficit." Even though the NYT is sweating blood every day to create the same power-abusing Ruling Class here.
The headline reads E.U. Elites Keep Power From the People. Written by Judy Dempsey, the article quotes great philosopher Jürgen Habermas, who finally dropped the penny:
"The political elites "are burying their heads in the sand," he said ... "They are doggedly persisting with their elitist project and the disenfranchisement of the European population."
The Ruling Class are mostly socialists. Barack Obama is a perfect example of the species. Obama cannot tolerate criticism; he is beyond criticism. Imagine ten thousand officials like Obama in the new EU capital of Brussels, and you've got the idea.
The Elite's infallibility is their basic assumption in life. This follows Stalin's reported advice: It's not who votes, it's who counts the votes.
Yes, conservative critics have been saying all that for a couple of decades, and it is good news that the NYT finally decided it was Fit for You to Read. The excellent British blog Euroreferendum puts it this way:
"People are fed up with politics and politicians because they know that their vote has little impact ... Victims of crime cannot change their local policing ... because these are decided by central government.
... The European Commissioners are effectively a one party state;
... Central government has taken on so many responsibilities that it is not possible for the politicians to discharge their responsibilities adequately, with a result that vital decisions are delegated ... to civil servants ... .
... The State has a lousy track record as a supplier of health and education services. ... There is a common feeling of helplessness that officials, more than elected politicians, run the country.
... over 60 percent of the laws ... are created by people who have not been elected and cannot be removed in elections."
