Effort s by European leaders t o shoe- horn a range of diverse count ries int o a rigid financial cage are doom ed t o fail. But t hat ’s all part of a long- t erm plan for a global super- currency which can only bring m ore hardship t o ordinary working people. A quest ion t hat m ore and m ore people are asking nowadays is, “ What on Earth were the Europeans thinking when they agreed to have just one currency for all of Europe?” I n Greek m yt hology, Procrust es was t he son of Poseidon, God of t he deep blue seas. He built an iron bed of a size t hat suit ed him , and t hen forced every body who passed by his abode t o lie on it . I f t he passerby was short er t han his bed, t hen Procrust es would st ret ch him , breaking bones, t endons and sinews unt il t he vict im fit t ed; if he was t aller, t hen Procrust es would chop off feet and lim bs unt il t he vict im was t he “ right ” size… This ancient st ory of “ one size fit s all” seem s t o have m ade it s 21st Cent ury com eback when Europeans were coaxed int o im posing upon t hem selves an oxy m oron; a blat ant and concept ual cont radict ion t hey call “ t he euro” . This com m on supranat ional currency invent ed by t he French and Germ ans, boy cot t ed by t he UK, ignored by t he Swiss, m anaged by t he Germ ans and accept ed by t he rest of Europe in blissful ignorance, has finally dropped it s m ask t o reveal it s ugly face: an im possible m echanism t hat only serves t he elit e bankers but not t he working people. I t m asked gross cont radict ions as large, far- reaching and varied as t he relat ive sizes, st rengt hs, profiles, st yles, hist ories, econom et rics, labor policies, pension plans, indust ries, and hum an and nat ural resources of t he 17 Eurozone nat ions, ranging from Germ any and France at one end of t he scale, t o Greece, Port ugal and I reland at t he ot her.
A s we said in a recent article, the euro carries an expiry date; perhaps the eurocrats who were its midwives a decade ago expected that it would live a little longer, maybe even come of age… But they certainly knew that, sooner or later, the euro would die; that it was meant to die.

Because t he euro is not an end in it self, but rat her a t ransit ion, a bridge, an experim ent in supranat ional currency earm arked for replacem ent by a far m ore am bit ious and powerful global currency issued by a global cent ral bank , cont rolled by a cabal of global privat e bankers, obeying a New World Order blueprint em anat ing from a privat e Global Power Elit e.

The problem t oday is t hat what im pact ed Europe as a financial ripple effect in 2008 has now grown int o a verit able financial t sunam i t hreat ening t o swam p t he whole euro syst em … And m ore big t rouble lies ahead! I n fact , t oday’s euro- t roubles are not hing m ore t han one of m any variat ions of sovereignty-troubles. Because when a count ry’s leaders irresponsibly cede a part or all of it s sovereignt y – whet her m onet ary, polit ical, financial, econom ic, j udicial or m ilit ary – it had bet t er t ake a really good look at what it is doing and what t he im plicat ions are for t he m edium and long t erm . Ceding nat ional sovereignt y m eans t hat som ebody else, som ewhere else, will be t aking decisions based on ot her people’s int erest s. Now, as long as every one’s int erest s coincide, t hen we are OK. But as soon as t he different part ies’ int erest s diverge, t hen you are confront ed wit h a power struggle. And power st ruggles have one sim ple t hing in com m on: the more powerful win; the weaker lose.
Now, we have a huge power struggle inside the eurozone. Who do you think will win? Who will impose new policies – Germany or Greece? France or Portugal? Britain or Spain? Germany or Italy?

And t hat is j ust on t he public scene. You also need t o look at t he m ore subt le, less m edia- highlight ed private scene, which is where t he real global power decisions are m ade.
Will the new Italian PM , M ario M onti, cater for the needs of the Italian people or for the mega-bankers’ lodge sitting on the powerful Trilateral Commission of which he himself is European chairman? The same question goes for Greek president Lucas Papademos, also a Trilateral member. The same question goes for all the governments of the EU member states where the real power brokers are the major bankers, industrialists and media moguls sitting on the Trilateral, Bilderberg, World Economic Forum and Chatham House think-tanks and private lobbies.

Global elit es will do everyt hing t o keep t he euro on it s t ransit ional pat h t owards a global currency t hat will event ually replace bot h t he euro and t he US dollar. This ent ails engineering t he cont rolled collapse of bot h currencies, whilst preparing t he yellow brick road for a “ Global Dollar” or som e such new oxy m oron. The US dollar will be easy t o collapse: all t hat is needed is for t he m ainst ream m edia t o yell, “ The dollar is hyper- inflat ed! ! ” and t he Naked Em peror Dollar will fall swift ly. The euro, in t urn, will sim ply break up as it s m em ber nat ions revert t o t he old days of peset as, lire, francs, escudos and drachm as… I s t he t im e ripe for t hat ? Maybe not … yet . So, no doubt we will st ill see m ore “ em ergency t reat m ent ,” m ore “ financial chem ot herapy” t o “ bail out t he euro” j ust as we’ve seen t hem “ bail out t he banks,” even t hough m ost banks and t he Oxym oron Euro cannot be salvaged but j ust kept art ificially alive, like t he “ Liv ing Dead…” So, here’s a quest ion for Greeks, I t alians, Spaniards, Port uguese, I rish, even t he French and Germ ans: will you accept t he invit at ion by your Procrust ean Leaders in Brussels t o lie down on t heir bed?
