The woman pictured is a professor of global governance and co-director of LSE Global Governance at the London School of Economics. Her name is Mary Kaldor and despite her elevated position and title, she is stupid. We know this. No one gets to that position and remains that ignorant unless they are seriously stupid. Unfortunately for the rest of us, The Guardian chooses to give Mary Kaldor an outlet through which to display her stupidity – thereby conferring on her more gravitas than she deserves – even the little conveyed by this dismal rag.

".."And that means that the EU has to reconstruct itself as a peace (and green) project instead of a fundamentalist market project," she writes..."

However, we would love to see it try. I would give it five years before it collapsed."



I would give it a lot less if it stressed the 'Green' aspect of the project. That is collapsing as we speak.

What damage would it do in those five years?

Richard, you're being sexist! She is only stupid by male standards, she compares well with Polly Toynbee and Louise Green/Grey/Meh.

It needs a global actor, she says, ready to take the initiative on climate change. It needs a polity underpinned by a powerful economy that can push for new global financial arrangements

Ghengis Khan, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin and Mao Tse Tung agree with this idea.
Centralizing government has always failed, except when enough natural resources have funded bread and circuses for the 'polity'.
How they dare call her a 'Professor' of Global Governance when they mean an advocate of GG is staggering. Her title shows how far academia has prostituted itself.

Meanwhile back in the real world, this kind of analysis is gaining ground.......and makes the very good point, of just how long will the Germans keep paying for the PIIGS.

Europe: Quantifying The Donors And Moochers
Tyler Durden's picture
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/26/2010 13:21 -0500


With the dramatic emergence of intra-EU bickering between various "banana-eating countries" and "tax cheats", it is easy to lose sight of the forest for the banana trees. While it is subjective to say who owes whom what, one thing that is very objective, is whose money is critical to sustaining the European Union. And here there is no doubt: without Germany, the EU would not exist. The country, which receives €78 billion from the EU annually, pays out more than double that, or €164 billion, for a net impact of (€1,045) per capita. Surely the Germans would be just as happy to see this money retained by their economy instead of going to assorted hangers-on. And speaking of the latter, one of the biggest recipients, with a net benefit of €2,284 per person, is Greece, which pays just €15 billion a year to the EU but receives nearly triple, or €40 billion. We wonder just how Greece will plug that particular hole should the EU dissolve after the recent escalation in rhetoric threatens to royally piss off the Germans.

<b>"Somehow, popular support for the EU needs to be remobilised," she writes</b>

I think this is a brilliant idea. The first thing she should do is to campaign, as well as write to the EU, that they need to make themselves popular. How? Well, the normal thing in such circumstances, is to offer the people of Europe whether they would like to be in the EU. in fact, a better idea would be if the EU should exist at all. Let the people have a 'popular' mandate. How about that?

As for Common Taxation policy and the likes, these are terribly unpopular.

PS:I was only half-joking of a 'Common Sustainable Taxation' policy, and here we have it.

Of course there is possibility that Mary Kaldor could be aiming for an EU post. Much better salary, perks and pensions.

World government has long been the fantasy of socialist masturbators such as H G Wells, and it is clear that the AGW scam is the means by which they are pursuing their wet dream. It is interesting that in the case of people like Kaldor or the Milipedes, it seems to be hereditary. Dangerous stuff, socialism.

Well said! And each generation hands its sinecures in academia on to the next. Until we tackle 'higher education' (sic) this socialist drivel will continue to metastasise. That was one of the Blessed St Margaret's major failures - she didn't tackle the vipers' nest.

Kaldor and Balogh - ennobled by Wilson for their considerable help in reducing the UK to a basket case (after they did the same for another Central European country) - the apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Oh yes, taxes levied by an organisation that could not achieve democratic legitimacy even with trinkets like a directly elected president will make the EU so much more popular!

Especially if hung on the increasingly discredited 'global warming' peg.

errr ... oh PDT_Armataz_01_03

What a very confused person she is.
