Europe's place in the world

The Unholy Crusade Against Hungary

Recently, the European Union has scaled up its struggle against Hungarian sovereignty. Laws against homosexual propaganda triggered the latest stir, but the real issue at hand is not one that has anything to do with the advertisement of sodomy in elementary schools.

The Return of the Crusader, 1835 (oil on canvas) by Lessing, Carl Friedrich (1808-80)

The real question is: ‘Who gets to decide?’

Does Hungary get to decide what is permitted in their schools, or is it up to the European Union? Heads of State were eager and quick in their condemnation of Hungary, for how dare they be so unprogressive! Surely such behavior cannot be tolerated within the European Union, a Union that wishes to be known for its moral highground, progressiveness, and global role modeling.

The Problem of Sovereignty

We’ve mentioned the elemental conflict of sovereignty in the European Union before here at the Clovis Institute, but most conflicts of sovereignty remain hidden and are dealt with by politicians and their shenanigans in dark rooms away from public eye. Pro-EU politicians prefer to bow down to EU demands, even when it is in conflict with their national interest – for the sake of the union. Due to Orban’s defiance, this conflict has exploded and has become visible for all to see.

Diversity of Ideology

Europe’s power, for centuries, has been the ability for competing ideas to persist and thrive throughout Europe’s countless little states. Now, it should be clear to everyone that the EU does not appreciate such diversity of ideology, and instead desires to force it’s ‘progressive’ and ‘green’ vision onto the entire continent. The Hungarian conservative view on the world thus has no place in this union. Either Hungary changes (voluntarily or not), or there’ll be no space for Hungary in the European Union. Some other Eastern European countries find themselves in a similar spot, most notably Poland.

The European Union Aims For Total Control

Even if the European Union gives up and gives Hungary this victory, it will only be temporary. The Union is very clear in expressing its goals. The maintenance of national sovereignty is not one of them. Thus, we can expect the EU to continue its consolidation of power. Once power is sufficiently consolidated, it can take on any defiance head to head. In the meantime, the media does its part in demonizing Hungary. This beautiful nation gets depicted as barbarians with a medieval mindset. The Hungarians need to be civilized.

You Must Be Tolerant

Ironically, the EU claims to reject moral objectivity. Different cultures and religions are welcomed. Yet, are morals not a part of culture? Different morality then, is allowed to exist in the individual. That is to say as much that you can do whatever you want as long as you pay your taxes and submit to the state. Hungary is not allowed to deviate from the dominant ‘progressive’ and ‘tolerant’ morality.

Cannot Tolerate Hungary!

Islamic schools can teach what they want. Sweden can suffer from a rape epidemic. The United Kingdom can hide and downplay the existence of grooming gangs. Crime moves upward. And those that oppose such measures can be banned from platforms, arrested in real life, or have their free speech restricted in whatever other way – using every tool they have in their arsenal. But when Hungary decides it does not wish to ‘educate’ small children about the joys of homosexuality, then such a behavior simply cannot be tolerated!

The world we live in is absurd, and the quote from St. Anthony comes to mind.

“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.”

Saint Anthony the Great

Denmark introduces ‘Offshore Hubs’

Denmark is showing the world that if there’s a desire to curve immigration, then there are plenty of opportunities to do so. The Danes have little interest in watching their safe and happy welfare state getting sacrificed for the sake of multiculturalism and ‘diversity’.

Interview with ‘Europa Terra Nostra – ETN’

Europa Terra Nostra is a Europe-wide organization promoting nationalism all over the continent. The website’s ‘about‘ tells us that “Europa Terra Nostra is a not-for-profit association constituted under and governed by Swedish law. The ETN’s current Board consists of Dan Eriksson (Chairman, Sweden), Ivan Bilokapic (Vice Chairman, Croatia) and Jens Pühse (Treasurer and Secretary General, Germany).” They gave the Clovis Institute an exclusive and eloquent interview, which you can read below. A big thanks to ETN and Sascha for participating in the interview.

The Danish Way – Say No to Immigration

Denmark, a country with 5.8 million inhabitants just north of Germany. Despite proximity, the Danish attitude is very different. Mette Frederiksen is Prime Minister of Denmark for the Social Democrats. Now, she announced that Denmark has the target of zero asylum seekers in Denmark, in order to protect social cohesion.

Spain’s Economy Crashes in 2020

Last year wasn’t a good year for most people. Lockdowns ruined businesses, and led many people to lose their jobs. Simultaneously a surprising large portion of the economy kept running, largely due to government support. However, they weren’t able to protect everything. Tourism got destroyed. Southern European economies, like Spain, rely heavily on tourism. No surprise that Spain’s economy, its GDP, shrank with 12.8% in 2020. The number isn’t final yet, but is an estimate from November 2020, meaning that despite a possible correction, it won’t be far off.

Europe Moves At Different Speeds

The EU has the Eurozone as an internal block, but not the whole EU belongs to the Eurozone. The economic demise of Europe will pull the Eurozone closely together at a rapid pace, while the non-Euro countries are left behind. Europe moves at a different speed, a different pace. It looks in two differenct directions.

The Turkish Question; a Dilemma

If you are a Turk living in Europe, who should you listen to? Should you listen to Macron who condemns the Islamic terrorism, or should you listen to Erdogan who condemns Macron for condemning Islam? Are you loyal to your origin country and religion, or to the country where you live? Moreover, how should the European governments deal with these Turkish, and Islamic, minorities? That is a question that is gaining in relevance as tensions rise between France and Erdogan. That is the Turkish question.

The EU Remains Faceless

The Faceless men behind the scenes…

On the 16th of July 2019 the European Union selected its new highest functions. We use the word ‘selected’, as opposed to ‘elected’. There is not much democracy involved when a few influential bureaucrats bicker in backrooms until they can find a person nobody is strongly opposed to. Even the pope has a higher claim to democracy, since the entire college of cardinals is allowed to vote.
