(New York Times, 4-18-07)
The "new European Soviet": "During a late-February address in Brussels, former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky warned that the European Union -- referred to by former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev as the 'new European Soviet' -- represents a continuation of the totalitarian vision he had fought against in Russia.... The former Soviet president Mikhail S. Gorbachev put it more succinctly when he told the official Russian news agency, Ria Novosti, last week that 'It is all about influence and domination in Europe.'”
Former Soviet Dissident Warns For EU Dictatorship (reported by Paul Belien, editor of the Brussels Journal, 2-27-06):
Vladimir Bukovksy, the 63-year old former Soviet dissident, fears that the European Union is on its way to becoming another Soviet Union. In a speech he delivered in Brussels last week Mr Bukovsky called the EU a 'monster' that must be destroyed, the sooner the better, before it develops into a full-fledged totalitarian state.
"In his speech Mr Bukovsky referred to confidential documents from secret Soviet files which he was allowed to read in 1992. ... These documents confirm the existence of a 'conspiracy' to turn the European Union into a socialist organization. I attended the meeting and taped the speech.... I also had a brief interview with Mr Bukovsky...
"Mr Bukovsky was one of the heroes of the 20th century. As a young man he exposed the use of psychiatric imprisonment against political prisoners in the former USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, 1917-1991) and spent a total of twelve years (1964-1976), from his 22nd to his 34th year, in Soviet jails, labour camps and psychiatric institutions. In 1976 the Soviets expelled him to the West.
"In 1992 he was invited by the Russian government to serve as an expert testifying at the trial conducted to determine whether the Soviet Communist Party had been a criminal institution. To prepare for his testimony Mr Bukovsky was granted access to a large number of documents from Soviet secret archives. He is one of the few people ever to have seen these documents because they are still classified. Using a small handheld scanner and a laptop computer, however, he managed to copy many documents...."
Transcript of Mr Bukovsky’s Brussels speech: Listen to it here
"In 1992 I had unprecedented access to Politburo and Central Committee secret documents which have been classified, and still are even now, for 30 years. These documents show very clearly that the whole idea of turning the European common market into a federal state was agreed between the left-wing parties of Europe and Moscow as a joint project which [Soviet leader Mikhail] Gorbachev in 1988-89 called our “common European home.”
"The idea was very simple. It first came up in 1985-86, when the Italian Communists visited Gorbachev, followed by the German Social-Democrats. They all complained that the changes in the world... were threatening to wipe out the achievement (as they called it) of generations of Socialists and Social-Democrats – threatening to reverse it completely. Therefore the only way to withstand this onslaught of wild capitalism (as they called it) was to try to introduce the same socialist goals in all countries at once. Prior to that, the left-wing parties and the Soviet Union had opposed European integration.... From 1985 onwards they completely changed their view. The Soviets came to a conclusion and to an agreement with the left-wing parties that if they worked together they could hijack the whole European project and turn it upside down. Instead of an open market they would turn it into a federal state.
"According to the [secret Soviet] documents, 1985-86 is the turning point. I have published most of these documents. You might even find them on the internet. But the conversations they had are really eye opening. For the first time you understand that there is a conspiracy – quite understandable for them, as they were trying to save their political hides. In the East the Soviets needed a change of relations with Europe.... in the West the left-wing parties were afraid of being wiped out and losing their influence and prestige. So it was a conspiracy....
"In January of 1989, for example, a delegation of the Trilateral Commission came to see Gorbachev. It included [former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro] Nakasone, [former French President Valéry] Giscard d’Estaing, [American banker David] Rockefeller and [former US Secretary of State Henry] Kissinger. They had a very nice conversation where they tried to explain to Gorbachev that Soviet Russia had to integrate into the financial institutions of the world, such as Gatt, the IMF and the World Bank....
"...the original idea was to have what they called a convergency, whereby the Soviet Union would mellow somewhat and become more social-democratic, while Western Europe would become social-democratic and socialist.... This is why the structures of the European Union were initially built with the purpose of fitting into the Soviet structure. This is why they are so similar in functioning and in structure.
"It is no accident that the European Parliament, for example, reminds me of the Supreme Soviet. It looks like the Supreme Soviet because it was designed like it. Similarly, when you look at the European Commission it looks like the Politburo. I mean it does so exactly, except for the fact that the Commission now has 25 members and the Politburo usually had 13 or 15 members. Apart from that they are exactly the same, unaccountable to anyone, not directly elected by anyone at all. [See box below]
"When you look into all this bizarre activity of the European Union with its 80,000 pages of regulations it looks like Gosplan... an organisation which was planning everything in the economy, to the last nut and bolt, five years in advance. Exactly the same thing is happening in the EU. When you look at the type of EU corruption, it is exactly the Soviet type of corruption, going from top to bottom rather than going from bottom to top.
"If you go through all the structures and features of this emerging European monster you will notice that it more and more resembles the Soviet Union. Of course, it is a milder version.... It has no KGB – not yet – but I am very carefully watching such structures as Europol for example. That really worries me a lot because this organisation will probably have powers bigger than those of the KGB.... Can you imagine a KGB with diplomatic immunity?
"They will have to police us on 32 kinds of crimes – two of which are particularly worrying, one is called racism, another is called xenophobia. ... Someone from the British government told us that those who object to uncontrolled immigration from the Third World will be regarded as racist and those who oppose further European integration will be regarded as xenophobes....
"The Soviet Union used to be a state run by ideology. Today’s ideology of the European Union is social-democratic, statist, and a big part of it is also political correctness. I watch very carefully how political correctness spreads and becomes an oppressive ideology.... Look at this persecution of people like the Swedish pastor who was persecuted for several months because he said that the Bible does not approve homosexuality. France passed the same law of hate speech concerning gays. Britain is passing hate speech laws concerning race relations and now religious speech.... What you observe, taken into perspective, is a systematic introduction of ideology which could later be enforced with oppressive measures. Apparently that is the whole purpose of Europol....
"It looks like we are living in a period of rapid, systematic and very consistent dismantlement of democracy. Look at this Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill. It makes ministers into legislators who can introduce new laws without bothering to tell Parliament or anyone. ... This can make a dictatorship out of your country in no time.
"Major political parties have been completely taken in by the new EU project..... They have become very corrupt. Who is going to defend our freedoms?... The most likely outcome is that there will be an economic collapse in Europe, which in due time is bound to happen with this growth of expenses and taxes. The inability to create a competitive environment, the overregulation of the economy, the bureaucratisation, it is going to lead to economic collapse. Particularly the introduction of the euro was a crazy idea....
"Look to the huge number of immigrants from Third World countries now living in Europe. This was promoted by the European Union. What will happen with them if there is an economic collapse?... In no other country were there such ethnic tensions as in the Soviet Union.... This huge edifice of bureaucracy is going to collapse on our heads.... We are losing and we are wasting time."
An interview with Vladimir Bukovsky
Vladimir Bukovsky: "I am referring to structures, to certain ideologies being instilled, to the plans, the direction, the inevitable expansion, the obliteration of nations, which was the purpose of the Soviet Union. Most people do not understand this. They do not know it, but we do because we were raised in the Soviet Union where we had to study the Soviet ideology in school and at university. The ultimate purpose of the Soviet Union was to create a new historic entity, the Soviet people, all around the globe. The same is true in the EU today. They are trying to create a new people. They call this people “Europeans”, whatever that means.
"According to Communist doctrine as well as to many forms of Socialist thinking, the... national state, is supposed to wither away. In Russia, however, the opposite happened. Instead of withering away the Soviet state became a very powerful state, but the nationalities were obliterated...."
Paul Belien: "What do you think young people should do about the European Union? What should they insist on, to democratize the institution or just abolish it?"
VB: "I think that the European Union, like the Soviet Union, cannot be democratized. Gorbachev tried to democratize it and it blew up. This kind of structures cannot be democratized."
PB: "But we have a European Parliament which is chosen by the people."
VB: "The European Parliament is elected on the basis of proportional representation, which is not true representation. And what does it vote on? The percentage of fat in yoghurt, that kind of thing. It is ridiculous.... The average MP can speak for six minutes per year in the Chamber. That is not a real parliament."
The emerging European Soviet: "Former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, for instance, has described the EU as 'the new European Soviet.' Gorbachev made that observation during a March 2000 visit to London. ... Gorbachev was sending a message to his fellow one world socialists, said Story, and he was absolutely 'correct in describing the EU as 'the new European Soviet.' One does not need an advanced degree in Leninist studies to see this."(The New American, 5-31-04)
Spoonful of government: (Mark Steyn, 9-24-07) "Our theme for today comes from George W Bush: 'Freedom is the desire of every human heart.' When the president uses the phrase, he's invariably applying it to various benighted parts of the Muslim world. There would seem to be quite a bit of evidence to suggest that freedom is not the principal desire of every human heart in, say, Gaza or Waziristan.
"But why start there? If you look in, say, Brussels or London or New Orleans, do you come away with the overwhelming impression that 'freedom is the desire of every human heart'?...
"...invited to choose between freedom and government 'security', large numbers of people vote to dump freedom — the freedom to make your own decisions about health care, education, property rights, seat belts and a ton of other stuff.'...
"This week freedom took another hit. Hillary Rodham Clinton unveiled her new health-care plan.... From now on, everyone in America will have to have health insurance. Hooray. And, if you don't, it will be illegal for you to hold a job.... That's a major surrender of freedom.... 'So what?' say the caring crowd. 'We've got to do something about those 40 million uninsured.'"

Comments on this topics:
England is a frightening place, living at two levels. Publicly there are firework displays, glitter, opening of new arena etc in Liverpool, “City of culture” but kids can’t read, and we are being swamped by immigration. Television is full of diversions, quizzes, cookery, auctions, soaps, and NO attempt to inform people how far we are along the road of suicide, before the last treaty is signed, the last door closes and Britain is abolished – literally I live not in England but in the North-West Region of Europe. Nobody would have dreamed in 1946 that Britain today could have happened.
And the same thing with a few different emphases is happening in America. (North American Union).
A legal meeting of the British National Party (BNP) in Anfield (Liverpool) was cancelled a few years ago at the request of the police “to prevent trouble” but the trouble would have come from the Anti-Nazi League. So who won? Not free speech! That worried me.
Since then a ballerina who “came out” as a BNP supporter is no longer front-rank. A teacher Mark Walker in the north-east likewise is now suspended., for his political affiliations.
Why should we fight in Iraq supposedly to bring them democracy, while it is killed off here? We have to get out of the E.U. and all the conventions on Human Rights, and run our on country.
