The Most Surprising Thing About The EU's Breakup

Reuters: EU risks 'falling apart' over migration crisis: Slovenia's PM
"If we don't find a solution today, if we don't do everything we can today, then it is the end of the European Union as such," Prime Minister Miro Cerar said. "If we don't deliver concrete action, I believe Europe will start falling apart," he told reporters.

A breakup of the EU has been expected here for years based on trends in social mood, but I expected the breakup to be fueled by negative social mood actions, the desire by nationalists to take control of their countries. There are growing nationalist movements around Europe and they are winning political victories, but instead of the nationalists driving the breakup with their policies, it is the pro-EU politicians pushing for a breakup with insane peak social mood policies. The migrant policy of Germany would be extreme at the peak of social mood, but now we are 15 years into a negative social mood period. The EU should be proposing to police its borders, expel terrorists and focus on tightening immigration policy. This would be a moderate policy given current mood. Instead, the EU is opening the borders and flooding Europe with hostile minorities from cultures and religions that want to conquer Europe. If you tried to come up with a policy to break the EU apart as fast as possible, it would be hard to come up with something better, and yet the most pro-EU politicians are behind it.

  1. It's possible that the purpose of the open borders policy was to break up the EU. If the politicians had already decided that the EU was unsustainable then it's a matter of how to dissolve it peacefully. Perhaps the multi-year drag out of the Greek debacle was intended to cause a financial crisis - they were waiting for some third-party financial organization to go bust and then blame the Euro (and EU) dissolution on he crisis caused by the third party. But it didn't happen. Generally no riots broke out and no financial crisis occurred.

    Next idea is to invite a bunch of scary young male Africans to come traipsing through Europe and its countryside villages - purpose is to get ordinary Europeans scared and angry at the government and its border policies. Perhaps they have calculated that as terrible as this is, it's better than having a war be responsible for the breakup of the EU.

    Of course war will still happen though - Europeans have fought each other for 3000 years, this was a temporary aberration of peace.
