Eso’s Chronicles 277 / 3
The ‘Knellen’ of EU Nations

Since it is European Commission’s Vivian Reding, born in Luxemburg, who attacks the English Prime Minister for being a ‘Euroskeptic’ and berates him for encouraging populism (see link in blog 275), it is logical to check out why it is England that resists the encroachment (take over) of its territory by the federalist minded EU and why it is the English populists who are singled out for being a specially onerous species. The reader will remember that in my previous blog I claimed that Latvians are no less onerous, or—as Reding is likely to discover—as are the French, the Germans, the Spanish, the Poles, etc. I assume that Reading speaks for the European Commission, among whom one Piebalgs (Commissioner of Development) is a Latvian and likely participated in the repression (knellen) of his countrymen by his silence and not insisting that Latvian people, not the State, should give up their own currency, the lats, for the Euro.
The truth about England is that the likes of the European Commission (a list is provided in a link in the previous blog), many of whom are descendants of elites of earlier generations, have some affinity to the Franks, from whom emerged the French and Normans .
While establishmentarian history of Europe speaks of the Normans and the French as descendants of the Vikings, who settled in northern Europe (after coming south from Sweden and Norway), they sooner are the descendants of the Franks, who fled from the area of what is now Romania, then of the Byzantine Empire upon its invasion by the Turks. The Franks fled from Byzantium to the European northwest and settled in roughly the same area now occupied by the Benelux countries (where other Vikings may indeed have settled before the arrival of their Black Sea cousins), and have ever since (the fourth crusade) plotted to recapture ancient Byzantium . Not least, they also plotted the conquest of Ye Merry Olde England on the other side of the Channel, where the ancient kingdom (remember King Arthur?) had prevailed and retained significant features of a very old culture.
The calendar of the fall of the Norman kingdom is short: 1066 to about 1216 (150 years), the last being the year of the death of King John, who in 1215 was forced to sign the “Freedom Document” or Magna Harta for the successors of the Norman barons.
While today the Magna Charta is advertised as a document of Freedom for Everyman, this has no more to do with the truth than the American Civil War has to do with the liberation from slavery of the black man until the Civil Rights march on Washington in 1963.
It does not take a historian to figure out that following 1066, the traditions of England were in turmoil. Only fifty-four years later, by 1120, the royal succession of the usurping Norman kings was given a mortal blow by the mass murder and assassination of the King’s successor with the sinking of the White Ship Following the assassination, the institution of Kingship in England never recovered, though ‘empty chairs’ were filled by royals celebrated to this day, Queen Victoria being foremost among them. In France, King Louis XVI lost his head to the guillotine in 1793; in Russia Peter the Great (d. 1725), a westernized implant, quickly destroyed the legacy of such true forerunners of ancient kings as Ivan the Great III (d. 1505).  Henceforth, kings were little more than the figureheads or spitting posts (as Ivan the Great IV became) for the barons. The people, in spite of their alleged backwardness, held on to the dream-time idea of a stateless government of their forebears even unto the days of Lenin and Stalin.
In spite of the early Catholization (globalization) efforts, the king of dream-times were held fast in so-called ‘primitive’ areas of the world—in Africa, South America, the Far East, India, where what remained of unrepressed humankind was soon put under colonial rule, whether that of England, America, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and not least the remnant of warmongering Franks, the Benelux countries (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg), among whom the king of Belgium, Leopold II (d. 1908)'s_Ghost was a trend setter for Stalin and Hitler with about ten million dead to his credit.
Indeed, Leopold II of Belgium, with his mounds of severed human hands and feet, puts the very name of ‘human being’ to shame, and doubly sullies the name of King, the ruler of humankind, sans the State—if we go back to our early days in the wood.
So, what does government without the State mean? It means that human beings govern themselves, and the King (or God) is but a dream-image that arises spontaneously from the imagination of every one of us. However, for this to happen, human beings have to live within the state of nature, the wood (again—remember Sir Gawain and the Green Knight), not within an urban artifice as federalized modern governments attempt to persuade us. The latter home-land territory for such figures as the Vice President of the European Commission Viviane Reding do indeed believe the public to be stupid enough not to realize that “No matter who gets elected, the government always gets in”. Thus, whether the opponents of a Federalized Europe are lowly citizens of some European nation or the Prime Minister of England, Reding’s address tells him and us: “Shut up, folk and sirs, and be more ‘democratic’, so NATO may drone ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights’ to more terrorist prone countries and we may pacify the war refugees by cross breeding them with unemployed Europeans whose support we will add to our war effort and costs.”
