Fifty years or so ago Karl Popper wrote a very nice book, The Poverty of Historicism
, which was an attack on marxism among other things. The central theme was that there are no laws of history and his arguments were highly convincing. At least I found them so, although it is a long time since I read it. Lovely stuff. The kind of pleasure you get watching a championship boxing match when your man pummels the sh*t out of his nasty opponent.
But that was before the EU. Now I'd say there was one worthy exception to Popper's Law
that "there are no laws of history
." And that exception is: The EU will be exterminated.
I think Popper, bless him, underestimated the power of hate and that, obviously, he had no inkling of the ever-growing strength of the coming EU's 'magnetic' field to attract it.
As they've said elsewhere and at other times, this one is inevitable
. But it really
is this time.We'll phcking make sure it is
If that's all right with you, PE?
