Seneca III has some thoughts on the increasingly totalitarian-fascist behavior of the European Union as it enters its final decline.
Methodologies and Catastrophic Failure
by Seneca III
In the field of scientific research there are two distinct methodologies — the Theoretical and the Empirical. The former, being purely speculative, is by its very definition unable to be proven right or wrong until subjected to rigid empirical testing. Both disciplines, of course, have a mathematical basis, but whereas Theories are almost totally mathematically based, being pure speculation or the extrapolation of known facts, Empirical (experimental) science uses mathematics only to tabulate, record, analyse and explain repeatable experimental data before coming to conclusions that can then, where necessary, be verified or disproven by further experimentation.
If one projects these two processes onto the field of human affairs, particularly the ways in which socio-political, territorial and economic dynamics evolve and impact, then similar outcomes prevail. I would suggest that the EU and its Globalist agenda are a classic case thereof. Originally the concept of a United Europe was pure emotion-driven theory, wishful thinking, to be generous, but unfortunately that theory did not take into consideration the lessons of history. Very soon, as it was forced into utilising ill thought-through Empirical methods, hurried experimentation, to achieve its end. It soon became clear that the theory and its implementation were badly — indeed terminally — flawed.
Thus, much of the consequent experimentation — in finance, taxation, defense, education and ‘diversified’ multi-cultural demographics (essentially, an EU-inspired and -encouraged mass invasion camouflaged as immigration and asylum seeking etc.) — was not only poorly designed, it was also deliberately designed to produce a desired outcome which, in the end was not achieved. As a last resort the door leading to the imposition of a draconian control regime across the Union was opened… the very thing that the EU was created to prevent. [For a perfect example of this retrograde process see this Breitbart article.]
Now, the architects of that catastrophic experiment should be starting to fear the inevitable consequences heading their way as the forces of reversal and retribution gather on their near horizon. Soon the Bureaucrats of Brussels, their trailing troughers and their countless, treacherous allies buried deep in the bowels of constituent Nation States will truly reap what they have sown.
