Why Europe is Failing: The Difference Between EU & USA

Of course a United States of Europe is hard to see, but it’s bound to happen because of the security threats Europe faces from Russia and the Middle East. America’s suiciding of itself is making it an unstable protectorate and partner, which is also accelerating the problem and causing Europe to scramble for a solution.

Member states of a United States of Europe of course will not get along as in the United States of America. There is however one thing that people are missing, and for that we look to what was prophesied in the Bible, in Daniel 2:

Daniel 2:33

33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.

Daniel 2:36-43

36 “This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. 37 Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; 38 in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold.

39 “After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. 40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. 41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

Is this exactly what’s going to happen? We don’t know for certain, but it would certainly fit the description as Europe has so much in-fighting among member states and there is no other region in the world at this moment in time that is considering (and needs) such a unification. A unified Europe, or United States of Europe, would be the only solution to ward off its external problems as America fades away. Because of the national differences, be it economic, political or social, it would be a mix of iron and clay indeed.

Don’t keep your eyes off God’s bigger picture.

 

Part of the crisis in the EU is the fact that there is an inherent anti-democratic foundation because Brussels has been attempting to force uniformity upon all of Europe which cannot possibly work. To the shock of some, I have stated many times that what made America function was DISCRIMINATION. Every group coming to America — German, Italian, French, or whatever — were forced to learn to speak English to get a job. This was not a law, but a cultural assimilation. If you ask an American what they are, they will respond with their ethnic background (half Irish and half German or whatever). You do not find such combinations in Europe beyond the rare encounter because language has kept European nations intact.

Consequently, the creation of a unified EU is unrealistic with language differences. From that basic fact emerges everything else. Since we have a single language in the USA, there is a national debate as to national security, etc. In Europe, there is no such debate. In fact, one could be criminally prosecuted for speaking an opinion against any other group. After a terrorist attack, they show people crying and lighting candles. The manhunt that resulted in finding the suspect, Salah Abdeslam, just 450 meters from where he officially lived demonstrates something that they will not express on TV: he cannot hide within the community without support from the community. The above photo showing locals gesturing angrily at the police who sealed off a Molenbeek neighborhood where Abdeslam was arrested is very disturbing for the implications suggest that Abdeslam had community support. Their language and cultural differences prevent many from assimilating within society. Any group that seeks to retain wholly distinct cultural differences cannot become part of a society. This really does not limit itself to Muslims, but any foreign group that resists becoming part of the country to which they moved. That would be as if I went to Rome, demanded everyone speak English, and then complained that they do not because that is where I moved. The old saying that stems from the migration in ancient times: “

The fact that the EU member states retained their own cultures and languages simply means the idea of the EU cannot function. It should have remained as an economic union. Hollande explained that the purpose of the EU was to prevent another European war, but he completely misunderstands that an economy unites but a forced assimilation without a common language only highlights the differences. His policy on asylum was very clear on July 10, 2015. Everything the EU was supposed to promote has failed. The idea that a single federal government would provide economic prosperity has proven false, as is the fact that they would provide greater security together.
