Why The European Union Is So Miserable

Why The European Union Is So Miserable PDF Version

Have ordinary citizens ever petitioned their government wanting to consolidate their governments into one unit? I remember no such initiative. So, does that simple observation mean anything? No, not unless you think about it.

Where do ideas for political initiatives come from? Do they just spring up from out of the concrete and embed themselves in the minds of the people? Probably not, but they do have to come from somewhere. Some might argue that these kinds of initiatives are divinely  inspired.

There are other possibilities. In today’s world all political initiatives are for profit. So, having all Europeans submit to a higher authority must be good for the various entities which make these things happen.

Here is exactly where the misery ensues.  Remember the old and underused adage of natural law, that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Unfortunately that bit of ancient wisdom and logic is only used as a platitude. Take it seriously and the world looks a lot difference and what happens makes sense.

The consolidation of power is much more conducive to absolute corruption than is the corruption present in the governments of each individual country. So you folks in Europe end up living in a hopelessly corrupt system.

One other point is that anonymity renders each individual as meaningless to a system’s leaders. So, if it seems nobody at the top loves you and you are only a cog in the wheel, that is because it is absolutely true.

Folks in Europe, don’t think I am picking on you alone. Here in the U.S., we are already further down the road to destruction than you are. Organized crime owns our healthcare industry. Our life expectancy is plummeting. Our citizens are compliant to the point of self destruction. Join us if you wish but I seriously advise you not to.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.

Needless to say, I agree completely and am happy to say I’ve never had a facebook, twitter or instagram account. I didn’t realize you were very ill but I’m glad to hear you’ve been feeling better lately. I am definitely sending lots of love, light and prayers your way, my friend! I owe you a deep debt of gratitude for opening my eyes to often unpleasant – but completely necessary to face up to – TRUTHS.
