AFTER BREXIT - A EUROPEAN SUPERSTATE?

The British have voted to leave the European Union (EU,) which has been a scheme to recreate and expand the Holy Roman Empire. This result of the Brexit referendum has sent shock waves aroung the globe. The EU is part of a process of globalization, which is also a perceptible scheme of the papacy to achieve world domination, consistent with Bible prophecy:-

Britain Votes to Leave E.U.; Cameron Plans to Step Down

Britain has voted to leave the European Union, a historic decision sure to reshape the nation’s place in the world, rattle the Continent and rock political establishments throughout the West. . .

European leaders acknowledged that the British vote would further limit their ability to move forward with economic and political integration, a process that had all but stalled anyway.

“Today marks a turning point for Europe,” Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany said. “It is a turning point for the European unification process.” . . .

Britain will become the first country to leave the 28-member bloc, which has been increasingly weighed down by its failures to deal fully with a succession of crises, from the financial collapse of 2008 to a resurgent Russia and the huge influx of migrants last year. . .

For the European Union, the result is a disaster, raising questions about the direction, cohesion and future of a bloc built on liberal values and shared sovereignty that represents, with NATO, a vital component of Europe’s postwar structure. . .

The loss of Britain is an enormous blow to the credibility of a bloc already under pressure from slow growth, high unemployment, the migrant crisis, Greece’s debt woes and the conflict in Ukraine.

“The main impact will be massive disorder in the E.U. system for the next two years,” said Thierry de Montbrial, founder and executive chairman of the French Institute of International Relations. “There will be huge political transition costs, on how to solve the British exit, and the risk of a domino effect or bank run from other countries that think of leaving.”

Europe will have to “reorganize itself in a system of different degrees of association,” said Karl Kaiser, a Harvard professor and former director of the German Council on Foreign Relations. . .

Other anti-establishment and far-right parties in Europe, like the National Front of Marine Le Pen in France, Geert Wilders’s party in the Netherlands and the Alternative for Germany party will celebrate the outcome. The depth of anti-Europe sentiment could be a key factor in national elections scheduled next year in the other two most important countries of the European Union, France and Germany.

With European leaders, including Angela Merkel of Germany, predicting a limitation of the EU nations' ability to move forward with economic and political integration, the question is whither bound is the Vatican's new Holy Roman Empire in the making? As far as the EU is concerned, the European leaders (and the Vatican) are probably genuinely disappointed that they were not able to draw the British into their currency and policy of political integration. They should not be disappointed that a major obstacle in the way of integration is being removed. The British have always resisted integration into a Eurpoean superstate, as was pointed out in a number of reports before the Brexit referendum vote:

Brexit: the best argument for Britain to leave the European Union:

Poll results have started to come in in this week's historic vote on Brexit— British exit from the EU. And it's looking like there's a real possibility that the United Kingdom will vote to leave. Many people view this as a disaster for the European Union.

But Andrew Lilico, a British economist at the consulting firm Europe Economics, argues that it's more complicated than that. He views the creation and expansion of the EU over the past half-century as a great accomplishment with benefits for both Britain and continental Europe. But he now believes it would now be better — for both Britain and the rest of the EU — for Britain to leave.

Why? Lilico believes that British exit from the EU became inevitable as soon as soon as the UK refused to join Europe’s common currency project. The euro has been an economic disaster, creating shockingly high unemployment rates in peripheral EU countries like Greece and Spain.

Lilico argues that the euro can only work well if the eurozone becomes a single integrated superstate. And he argues that the UK’s presence within the EU has become the most important obstacle to deeper European integration. . .

Brexit vote would bring EU states closer together, says French finance minister:

European countries would counter the economic shock of a British vote to leave the EU by accelerating plans for closer integration, the French finance minister has said. . .

Europe struggles with integration — and Britain struggles with Europe:

On Thursday, British voters will have the opportunity to express their collective opinion on whether to remain in the European Union. "Brexit" is the shorthand term for leaving. The referendum of Prime Minister David Cameron's government has been extremely controversial, even within his own Conservative Party.

However, the referendum does reflect the strong established currents within Britain of skepticism and outright opposition to European economic and political integration. . .

In 2005, Britain also led the way in vetoing a proposed comprehensive European Constitution. The risk of losing aid from Brussels encouraged politically astute Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair's decision. Additionally, European backers of integration had grown more ambitious, alienating Britain and others with visions of expanding EU authority at the expense of national sovereignty. . .

British resistance to institutional engagement in Europe is deeply rooted historically, traceable at least to the 16th century. According to one story, King Henry VIII had a portrait of himself painted in which he held in one hand a pair of scales labeled Austria and France. In his other hand, he held a weight capable of tipping the balance in favor of one state or the other. This image is a useful symbol for British policies toward the continent in the centuries that have followed. Britain proved crucial in defeating Napoleon and then Hitler. . .

A penchant for separation from continental European institutions, as illustrated by the story about King Henry VIII, includes the Holy Roman Empire, of which Britain was never a part. It is worthy of note that major nations such as France were not a part. Now, even without Britain a new Holy Roman Empire comprised of European Union nations is vastly expanded from the old. This is in harmony with the papacy's global ambition.

Notwithstanding pessimism about the future of the European Union expressed by Angela Merkel and other European leaders, Britain's vote to leave the EU has been followed swiftly by plans for a superstate:

Is a European Superstate in the Near Future?

In the wake of the United Kingdom’s referendum to leave the European Union, pundits the world over have pondered the future of the influential (and largely economic) coalition of European states. Several of the most powerful remaining of these member-states, however, seem to be wasting no time in charting that future course for themselves.

Polish broadcaster TVP has obtained a 9-page excerpt from a document endorsed by the foreign ministers of both Germany and France detailing what appears to be a road-map toward a more federalized European Union; a new development that could weaken the individual sovereignty of the participants and pave the way for something akin to “the United States of Europe.”

Britain dodges European Union ‘superstate’ bullet with plans revealed days after Brexit vote

THE EU has unveiled plans to morph the continent’s countries into one giant superstate just days after Britain voted to leave the EU, it is claimed.

Foreign ministers from France and Germany presented the radical proposals to do away with individual member states’ armies, criminal law systems and central banks, The Sun reports.

The blueprint suggests the 27 states in the bloc would also lose what is left of their powers to control their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees, according to reports by Polish media.

Instead all powers would be transferred to Brussels under the controversial plans.

In a foreword to the nine-page report seen by the Daily Express, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault said: “Our countries share a common destiny and a common set of values … that give rise to an even closer union between our citizens.

“We will therefore strive for a political union in Europe and invite the next Europeans to participate in this venture.”

The EU is seen as an example of the need for nations to think globally in order to survive in a world economy marked by the rapid development of technology. Globalization is also precisely what serves the purpose of the papacy, and the dragon power behind the throne (Rev. 13:2, last part.) There is a critical distinction between globalization and internationalization:

Globalization Versus Internationalization

 Globalization, considered by many to be the inevitable wave of the future, is frequently confused with internationalization, but is in fact something totally different. Internationalization refers to the increasing importance of international trade, international relations, treaties, alliances, etc. Inter-national, of course, means between or among nations. The basic unit remains the nation, even as relations among nations become increasingly necessary and important. Globalization refers to global economic integration of many formerly national economies into one global economy, mainly by free trade and free capital mobility, but also by easy or uncontrolled migration. It is the effective erasure of national boundaries for economic purposes. International trade (governed by comparative advantage) becomes interregional trade (governed by absolute advantage). What was many becomes one.

The very word "integration" derives from "integer", meaning one, complete, or whole. Integration is the act of combining into one whole. Since there can be only one whole, only one unity with reference to which parts are integrated, it follows that global economic integration logically implies national economic disintegration. By disintegration I do not mean that the productive plant of each country is annihilated, but rather that its parts are torn out of their national context (dis-integrated), in order to be re-integrated into the new whole, the globalized economy. As the saying goes, to make an omelette you have to break some eggs. The disintegration of the national egg is necessary to integrate the global omelette. . .

It is obvious that economics is a major vehicle for the supranational global government planned by the Vatican. This is to accomplish political integration where this cannot be accomplished through religious ecumenism. Rome is on the march on all fronts:

The EU, the UK and The Future of the Global Economy

The rapid spread of information of technology has made it almost impossible for governments to control cross border capital flows or regulate the production, marketing and distribution of multinational enterprise. Perhaps more importantly, most economists see globalization as the engine of world economic growth and prosperity. Indeed, many point to the formation of the European Union (EU) as one of the more striking examples of the need to think globally to survive in the new economy. . .

In truth, globalization is much more than simply the integration of different economic systems. It is, rather, the merging of social and political value systems, as well as economies, although admittedly proponents of globalization have tended to focus on the economic aspects alone. . .

The EU nations have greatly helped shape the future for all nations but this great example in governance cannot succeed without the UK. [It remains to be seen whether success is dependent on UK involvement.]

IN ANY EVENT, no matter what happens in Europe, globalization is here to stay, both by irreversible technological conditions AND as the ultimate objective of the papacy and the dragon. The world is rapidly advancing towards the apocalyptic union of nations against the Lamb of God and those who are with Him; but their end and that of the papacy will be as described in Rev. 17:12-18.
