“Europe's nations should be guided towards the superstate without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.”
Here, in a nutshell, we plainly see the trickery that stands behind the fabricated 'Union' of individual nations, each of which was led to believe that its economic and social stability would prosper once it committed to the 'common market' and the various treaties which mark its inexorable passage to 'superstate'.
The actual mission of the founders of the EU has always been something of a chimera; Monet's letter makes it clear however, that the motivation was both idealistic and elitist. The supranational entity was to be created “without (their) people understanding what was happening” following a pattern of elitist oligarchical ambition stretching back through past dynasties.
We can trace the roots of this latest 'superstate' experiment to the Schuman Plan of 1951, which was signed up to by six countries and took the form of a treaty (The Treaty of Paris) centred around coal and steel industries being placed under common management, ostensibly to prevent any recurrence of the death and destruction of the second World War. Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg were the signaturies to this treaty whose empirical purpose was stated to be ensuring that none of these countries could ever again manufacture weapons of war to be used against the other.
Then in 1957, the same six countries expanded cooperation to other economic sectors and signedThe Treaty of Rome. Thus creating the 'European Economic Community' also known as The Common Market. The UK joined up to this in 1973 under Mrs Thatcher.
The formal creation of the European Union, under the guidance of Jaques Delors, didn't occur until February 1992 under the Maastricht Treaty. It formalised the introduction of the European Parliament and European Commission, the latter gaining considerable 'management power' under Jaques Santer, its first president. Interestingly, the Commission was originally to be named “The High Authority”, which has strongly Masonic overtones. But this name was dropped in the 1960's.
The single currency (Euro) element of the expanding Union was launched in 1999, along with the European Central Bank. Lastly came the Lisbon Treaty of December 2009 which created the new post of President of the European Council.
