A Letter From Romania: The European Colonial Union

Written by

The European Union does not have a common healthcare system, a common social benefit system, a common pension system, or at least a common unemployment benefit, financed by a common EU budget, thus so EU looks like any other colonial empire, with a colonial power (Germany), some "little brothers" (the Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Belgium, Finland) and their colonies: Romania, Bulgaria, the rebellious Hungary etc.


A New German Empire

Like the old colonial empires, the EU supports only some distinct domains like transportation or agriculture, which favor the exploitation of the colonies. The EU leadership avoid on purpose to provide (or at least to finance) education, healthcare, social benefits, housing, pensions, payment of public services to all its member states. In its function it maintains and even increases the gap between richer and poorer EU member states.

Richer EU countries have their own very good public services (education, healthcare, justice, police, pensions, social allowances, unemployment benefits) for their residents, while poorer EU countries struggle by themselves to finance their public services.

It's somehow like in South Africa, prior to the release of Nelson Mandela from prison: good things for whites only, bad things for blacks. It is called Apartheid. It is nothing but pure racism. The black were proclamed citizens of some "independent states", so called 'Bantustans', and they were granted the "right" to work for the white, but not to use the same public services. Even toilets were separated.

The federal government of the USA pays the wages and equipment for 23,000 federal workers in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, with a population of just 3.5 million, same wages and equipment as for any federal workers in the mainland USA.

In the meantime, the European Union finances zero wages for zero EU employees in countries like Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, with a combined population of more than ten times bigger than Puerto Rico.

As a result of this situation, the only way for a "European" life for most Romanian and Bulgarian people is to emigrate to one of the richer EU member states. Some studies say that 30% of Bulgarians and 15% of Romanians have left their countries, for a better life in Western Europe, a unique opportunity to enjoy a good healthcare, good education, and good wages.

The Refugees Know

This is not lost upon the refugees struggling to reach Europe.

This is why the plan of Germany and its puppet, the European Commission, to distribute refugees across the whole EU is wishful thinking. It will be just another EU directed disaster, as their other plans already are:

  • The euro = a common currency without fiscal transfers, exactly like a perfect colonial currency;

  • Their crazy 'solution' for Greece = to punish Greece for borrowing too much money by forcing them to accept evenh even more lent money;

  • Austerity = to drain the money out of the private sector through public budgetary surpluses, while private sector needs not less, but more money;

  • Etc.

The refugees don't want to live "anywhere in the European Union". They are not at all that stupid. Even the least informed refugee is perfectly aware about the enormous gaps between the living conditions in different member states of the EU. They don't want to "enjoy" the precarious healthcare of Romania, or the lack of public housing in Bulgaria, not even the meager social benefits of Hungary. The refugees want the best living standards and we can't blame them for that.

A lot of the refugees already located in the European Union (Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Italy or even France) want to live in other, richer EU countries. Their desire to settle only in rich countries drives them to go so far as even to risk their lives, like the people who try to enter the UK from Calais, France. Sending these people who don't want to live even in Greece, Italy or France to such poor EU countries like Romania and Bulgaria would be possible only using force against these refugees, against women, children, old people. It is called "deportation", a favorite method of mass control of many dictators. These refugees could be sent to Romania and Bulgaria only in chains.

No method to select the refugees would be moral, legal and acceptable: "Hassan, you will stay in Berlin, Germany, while Ahmed will be sent to live in poverty in Romania". What criteria to be applied to decide who will be sent to Romania and who will stay in Germany? There is no acceptable criterion, no matter what we take into our consideration: education, age, sex, children, wealth, and religion. What to do then? A lottery? "The lottery winners will stay in Germany, while the other ones will be sent in Bulgaria".

The EU leadership lives in a parallel world. And it isn't any new piece of information.
