Last month at Davos, George Soros turned around completely on China, echoing the Trump administration (of all things) in warning the world against the rise of China versus his previous stance.
The main reason for this shift in Soros' attitude on China stems from his fear that the European Union will not achieve its goals of becoming the next great world power and subjugate the Chinese, but rather dissolve like the Soviet Union on which it is based.
He finally aired those fears in another of his infamous op-eds over at Project Syndicate (link through RT here). In sum, they are simply that Europeans must chuck off that which makes them individuals for the sake of Mother Europe.
The European Union is the highest ideal and, as such, should be that for all decent Europeans. This is the highest form of collectivist thinking.
And it's time to circle the wagons against the ravening hordes of people who don't like getting slowly bled to death, their culture eradicated, their neighborhoods destroyed and their dignity as people shot in the face with tear gas.
I've read megalomaniacal treatises in my life, but this one was impressive to say the least.
At least he didn't lament the EU's mistakes by invoking omelette's and eggs.
I could (and maybe should) go into a point by point counter of all of Soros' terrible assumptions but we've all heard variations on this Marxist twaddle for years.
The important part of this op-ed is not the substance, which itself designed to be chum for conservatives to lose their minds over, but the reason it was written in the first place.
