". As a condition of French consent to the reunification, French President Francois Mitterrand demanded a steep price: that Germany give up its cherished stable currency, the deutsche mark, and bind itself to a common currency, and by extension to the broader tapestry of Europe", quoted from the article.
the french wanted their (the german) stability but demanded they give up a stable
DM. because the french so badly mismanage their own country, a psuedo socialist
state, they could undermine germany's rise on the european continent--economically.
because of the current situation in germany, its a wonder why there aren't more
national-socialist seats taken in the germany congress. should germany expell its
"foreigners" and stop giving aid to europe at large, it will emerge as the european
the states of europe, by their mismanagement, gross in some instances, are already
giving germany a nudge up.
overspending and unemployment (welfare) are killing europe as well as the US.
i've been posting for several years about the re-emergence of a national-socialist
germany, AND, europe as a whole. they, europe, will by a default of sorts, help
to springboard a NS movement, not just in germany, but in the whole of europe--
almost in its entirety.
understand france's mitterand fears! if germany goes NS, out of fear of it being
a superpower--more powerful than 1939, many/most nations will follow, so they
aren't left behind. as they, germany, starts expelling aliens/foreigners and their
unemployment decreases, many will follow that example.
it's not as though the seeds were just planted yesterday, they've been there for
a decade or two. and unlike the NS party of yesteryear, that political philosophy
has simply been idle/passive AND, there are already numbers of NS thinkers
throughout europe as a stronger EU base from which to grow.
the virtual takeover of jamel, germany by NSists is just the first of many to come, IMO.
and the authorities, doing not much about it either.
you might think all this diatribe from me is naught as russia will counter any
rise/force of european national socialism.
the 100,000 or so hard core national socialistists in russia are in friendly contact
with all the others, not just in russia, but in the european theatre and the US.
a NS europe and russia? powerhouse? not sure what you'd call it, powerhouse would
seem to fall short of exactly how one would describe such a "union".
HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE comes to mind!
