After the vote for Brexit prevailed, a series of European Union countries expressed their true feelings about the Union. As the ghost of the Far-Right is taking over the continent after EU's complete failure to handle the refugee issue efficiently, several countries threaten the rotten EU structure with an exits epidemic.
From express.co.uk :
The Hungarian Prime Minister's [Viktor Orban] right hand man has said he does not want to remain in the European Union (EU) as it fails to protect European values. Janos Lazar's shock revelation on Thursday afternoon came as a growing number of EU members have joined a queue to back leaving the bloc after Britons voted to leave last week. The Minister for the Prime Minister's office, said: "I couldn't vote whole-heartedly for Hungary to stay in the EU. "Europe does not equal the EU. The EU is not able to protect the rights and values of Europe."
Hungary, which joined the EU in 2004, has become part of a core group of rebels, including Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, who threatened today to draw up their own plans for a less centralised EU. Poland, which also joined in 2004, is leading the rebellion by nine former communist countries after accusing the old guard - Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands - of monopolising EU discussions after holding private talks in Berlin over the weekend.
Mr Orban also said the EU's failure to manage the migrant crisis was to blame for Britain voting to leave the EU and warned further referendums could follow. He added: "The important question is what lessons to draw from what happened, for us Europeans who are still members of the European Union and want to stay in. "If the EU cannot solve the migration situation then such challenges as we saw in the case of the United Kingdom will increase."
There is no doubt that some former Eastern Bloc countries are deeply displeased, not only by the way that the EU is dealing the refugee crisis, but also by the fact that they seem to be left out from key decisions by the EU's founding members and hard core countries. It seems that the pro-Brexit vote inspired them to follow the same path.
So, while the US empire may not be entirely displeased by a potential Brexit, as the traditional politics will restore influence on a traditional ally, it must be really furious seeing that former Eastern Bloc countries seriously thinking of leaving the EU.
The economic oligarchy that represents the neoliberal internationalism in both sides of the Atlantic will not tolerate further losses. Yet, that doesn't mean that there is no economic war between the big capital supergiants. Inside this increasingly chaotic situation, things are far more complex than they appear.
The US banking/corporate capital promotes its most faithful puppet, Hillary Clinton, as the most suitable to break the threat of the rising Sino-Russian alliance, which could form a rival alternative model through BRICS and other formations against the Western neoliberal financial monopoly. For that purpose it would be absolutely necessary to keep the former Eastern Bloc countries tied to the Western formations, by all means. Theoretically, Germany should act towards this direction, but the paranoia of the German technocrats that demand further sado-monetarism by the member states, even after Brexit, appears to be unexplained.
As already mentioned, Nationalists and Far-Right eurosceptics are rising everywhere, seeing already a German-dominated Europe. So why the German political puppets play with fire? Why do they put their precious neoliberal internationalism at risk?
An alternative possible explanation would be that the German capital is trying to shape its own pole in the European continent, creating an autonomous bloc. The German technocrats don't know how to do it except go by the book of the mainstream neoliberal economics of destruction, made in IMF. They are characterized by zero flexibility and all they care about is to start another Treuhand operation in European level for the benefit of the German oligarchy. Despite that they destroyed the Greek economy, they didn't hesitate to force the second eurozone economy, France, proceed in anti-labor measures, using the European institutions. They will not hesitate to impose the sado-monetarism recipe even inside Germany.
At the same time, there is an underground economic war through which the few survivors will declare absolute dominance in the neo-Feudal era of big banks and corporations. We've seen some examples that came on surface: “German drug and chemicals group Bayer has offered to buy the American GM seed pioneer Monsanto for $62bn (£43bn) in a deal that would create the world’s biggest agricultural supplier.” (theguardian.com) Also, the US-controlled IMF declared war on Deutsche Bank stating that the bank "poses the greatest systemic risk to the global financial system".
The problem is that until the whole thing clear up, the exits epidemic may break the EU into pieces with the nightmare of Far-Right hanging above the continent. Recall that the Czech president proposed referendum not only on EU, but also on NATO membership. Therefore, the US empire must be really furious about the stubborn German inflexibility right now. How things could evolve further from this chaos, it would be better not to think about it ...
