It's a perfect metaphor for modern times: a miracle of the most advanced technology celebrated with a presentation of the most primitive morality. Welcome to the post-Christian, neo-pagan West.
As the British literally decide the future of their nation with an upcoming vote on whether to leave the European Union, the rise of foreign robbers, rapists, and murderers from other EU nations may cause British voters to say enough is enough.
Voters in ultra-wealthy Switzerland delivered a crushing blow to the “Universal Basic Income” plan, with more than three fourths voting against the proposal to hand out huge amounts of “free” taxpayer money to every adult and child in the country.
Increasingly, British voters are dismissing the dire warnings of “Project Fear” — the non-stop propaganda campaign of Prime Minister David Cameron, EU and IMF officials, President Obama, the major media, etc. — and the pro-Brexit side has now taken the lead.
The world's biggest technology companies joined with the European Union to censor the Internet, announcing this week an online “Code of Conduct” that will be used to remove and prosecute “illegal” speech, while promoting government propaganda. Everything from the Christian Bible and the Islamic Koran to criticism of Islam or concerns about uncontrolled immigration could fall under the vague new censorship rules. Alongside the censorship and propaganda, the EU touted “a robust system of enforcement” to effectively apply “criminal sanctions against the individual perpetrators” of illegal speech. Critics, though, are speaking out, warning of the Orwellian implications of having an unelected and unaccountable super-state attempting to overturn centuries of protections for civil liberties that are at the core of Western civilization.
There are more than 100 European Union laws that govern pillows. Almost 500 EU laws cover towels. More than 65 EU laws deal with bathrooms. A “mere” 31 EU laws cover toothbrushes, while close to 50 govern toothpaste, and more than 170 deal with mirrors. And that is all just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the super-state's radical lawmaking. Yet, the people of Europe have no clue what those laws say, how they were made, by whom, or even for what purpose. More importantly, perhaps, they have no way of getting rid of the laws or those who usurped the power to make them.
But now, thanks to the “British Exit” (Brexit) referendum coming up on June 23, the British people have what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secede from the out-of-control super-state that has taken over their lives. And the new film Brexit: The Movie, which highlighted the dizzying array of EU laws listed here, may be the best resource yet for explaining the necessity of restoring Britain's independence. Best of all, it is available for free.

As the European Union and the establishment behind it become increasingly totalitarian, paranoid, and unstable, the EU super-state is raising up and training its own transnational military-police force. According to reports and its own propaganda material, the EU “Gendarmerie,” as the force is known, will apparently be charged with putting down protests and civil unrest, raiding illegal political meetings, supporting foreign governments, and even confiscating weapons. Police and troops from numerous African and Middle Eastern nations were also involved in the controversial EU force's latest EU-funded training exercises. Critics are fighting back, though, warning of the dangers of such a force and of the EU itself.
British Prime Minister David Cameron, desperate to win the upcoming June referendum on whether to leave the European Union, has resorted to the doomsday scenario, arguing that such an exit would lead to a world war.
