With the final signature on the European Constitution/Treaty of Lisbon, the EUSSR has come into being.
Americans fondly believe it means a United States of Europe, a copy of the US of A, a junior partner who can be relied upon to support a US President in whatever he wants to do. They may become bitterly disappointed.
The Chinese wish that they may live in interesting times. They may get their wish.
The EUSSR has now followed two thirds of the master plan originally written by Goering in the 1930s. Following the remaining third will certainly be interesting.
As of today, the EUSSR can claim to be the mightiest Empire in history with outposts of Empire in Africa and South America, in the South Atlantic and in the Pacific, in addition to comprising Western, Central and Eastern Europe.
If the published maps become reality, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and much of Canada can be expected to join the union, or be assimilated. Turkey and Israel may be brought into the Union within the next five years.
The question then is – how far will the vision develop? It would be logical for English, French, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking nations to join the union. The Goering Plan envisaged the acquisition of the US as part of the final stage.
Where now is the British Commonwealth left? Will it be divided between the USA and the EUSSR?
Will India and China fight it out over Africa?
Of course the EUSSR may die in infancy. The forces that have driven it forward, biting off small chunks at a time, as Goering envisaged, may now find a growing resistance within. Of those who hope for European co-operation, many are unenthusiastic about the Franco German plan for world domination. Many in Europe hope for accountable government and the pursuit of corrupt politicians. Many wish to work together, where it makes sense, but to still preserve their national identities, their languages, their culture and their religions.
Much will depend on who is anointed as the first President and who is anointed as the first Foreign Minister. Their job specifications have yet to be written. Probably those two people will write their own job specifications. Will they be political and international midgets, chosen so as not to offend the big nations of Europe? Will they be egomaniacs, such as War Criminal Blair, who will expect to be acknowledged as the Leaders of the World.
The choice of President and Foreign Minister are not the only difficult early decisions. Europe now needs a single language. It is unlikely that the single language will be required to replace all languages, but become the language of the military and government, with those wishing to use a different regional language having to carry the cost of translation from the Official Language. Even so, choosing the Official Language will present some challenges. The French and the Germans both assumed that their language would become the communications standard, but English is the most widely spoken language and the natural choice, if not necessarily the English spoken in England.
Then there is the choice of capital city. Brussels is only the logical choice if Europe expands to the Americas, but then London begins to challenge strongly as the centre of world commerce. If the expansion West does not happen, the logical location will be Berlin. Which ever is selected, the Parliament will be located there and not follow the current caravan route between Brussels and Strasbourg.
Europe is now at a cross roads. The level of corruption and self-interested power that has characterized Eurocrats and the ruling elite could be sustained by taking the EUSSR road. The resistance movement could grow and bring an end to the criminal practices and begin to return power to the people. The resistance could grow very rapidly and lead to the breakup of the European Union.
If the road to full EUSSR is taken every European country will feel the jackboot on its neck.
The alternative could all be very different. Harmonization could mean that Britons, generally accepted as the most dissident EU Member State, may find that harmonization brings unexpected benefits. Motorways could have speed limits removed. Trains might run on time. Citizens could once again own handguns and hunt foxes. Taxes could fall as the cost of military forces is spread across Europe. The burka could become illegal. Racial discrimination in favour of immigrants from outside Europe could be ended.
How it all unfolds remains to be seen.
