Italy: The Biggest Elephant Jeopardizing Europe and the Euro
Not just the euro, but the entire European Union may be in jeopardy next week when the Italians vote on a constitutional referendum initiated by Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi.
What a Jubilee year it has been. First Brexit, then Trump and now it appears Italy is on the cusp of also escaping the grasp of the European Union.
After two years of directly covering trends involved with the disintegration of Western culture in my book Shemitah Trends, I can say with confidence that what has been built up is being torn down. That includes the European Union which will either gradually or abruptly collapse into various pieces.
Nonetheless, the overall centralization and authoritarianism of Europe will not cease. It simply will be ruled in pieces instead of as one region. The disasters that will come as a result of the fracturing, will be used as justifications to create the additional globalism that our controllers seek – though in general, most people are opposed to it.
A splintered Europe is probably easier to control than a homogenous one. Part of control is setting individuals, groups and regions against one another. Having an “enemy” to unite against justifies authoritarianism.
Is Renzi everything he seems to be? His nickname is Il Rottamatore – the “Demolition Man.” It is hard to believe he simply decided the best way to reform Italy was via referendum, especially given the rising anti-euro sentiment and political opposition to constitutional changes.
In order to examine what’s really going on in Italy, you have to be aware of recent political trends — one of the most prominent being George Soros’s affiliation with one of Italy’s most influential political parties, the “Five Star Movement.”
This party was founded by comedian Beppe Grillo and has espoused a variety of anti-mainstream points of view. Most notably, the party has called for a vote on leaving the Eurozone.
It is very possible that if Renzi loses his referendum, political maneuverings could bring further referendums directly affecting Italy’s participation in the EU.
How do we know about Soros’s affiliation with the party? Because he is close friends with economist Joseph Stiglitz who is a good friend of Grillo’s and Stiglitz reportedly has had a strong influence on Grillo’s economic stance.
