It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford

Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. Benjamin Franklin

A new EU border force

"In the end, it may be losing control of the border that does in the European Union. You’ve read a lot about the euro, the trend toward ever more political centralisation of power, and Germany’s dominance of the eurozone. But if a super-state can’t protect its borders, member states will start acting on their own. Or start leaving.

It may all be coming to a head sooner rather than later. In Britain, the focus is on next year’s referendum. But the Financial Times reports events on the ground are moving much faster. The FT writes that:

“Brussels is to propose the creation of a standing European border force that could take control of the bloc’s external frontiers — even if a government objected. The move would arguably represent the biggest transfer of sovereignty since the creation of the single currency.”

You see. It was never about the money. The money is just a means of persuasion, or coercion if necessary."
