One of the most important papers presented at the 1978 World Anti-Communist Conference in Washington concerned the question of the European Economic Community and Communist strategy. This paper was presented by Mr. Donald A. Martin, National Director of The British League of Rights, who was attending the Washington Conference in his capacity as Chairman of The British League of European Freedom. We have included the cross-headings.
It is most appropriate that the theme of the annual conference should be ‘Unity for National Freedom against Communist Aggression.’ This threat is very real in Europe. The threat in Europe is even more serious because many people, including many Conservative Party leaders in Great Britain, do not understand that the Communist objective of the destruction of the nation-state is being achieved by people who, on the surface, even appear as anti-Communist.
Allow me for a few moments to remind us all of the certain features of Communism in order to set my remarks in their correct context with greater clarity.
We all know that basic Communist philosophy is referred to not only as Marxism-Leninism but Dialectical materialism. Mr. Eric D. Butler, the President of the Crown Commonwealth League of Rights, in his excellent publication “Dialectics’ Communist Instrument For World Conquest” has this to say:
“Dialectical materialism enables the Communist to murder lie, betray, to claim that which was black yesterday is white today. But the Communist does not believe that he is murdering or lying or being treacherous. So long as he is advancing Communism he is, in fact, acting morally because to the Communist the only morality is that which advances Communism.”
Against the background of this Communist instrument we can see why so many political leaders in Europe can be deceived by what the Communists say or even what they might do if they fail to look at what the Communists actually want to achieve – whether they do the work or whether they can force others to do it for them, in their state of confusion.
What therefore do the Communists wish to achieve in Europe? Quite simply they want to destroy the nation states of Europe and centralize power into fewer and fewer hands.
If we look at Europe today, what do we see as the major instrument actually being used to achieve this objective? The answer is the Common Market, or what is generally referred to as – the European Community. Note here that it was once referred to as the ‘European Economic Community (EEC) but now the word ‘Economic’ has been officially dropped.
Initially, everyone was given to believe that the Common Market was just some sort of trading arrangement. However, an examination of the Treaty of Rome, the treaty which first established the European Community, shows that the objective is considerably wider.
Whilst the basic aim of the European Community is political there is no doubt that the instrument for achieving this objective has been economic coercion. Even here the subterfuge and stealth have had to be used. The current chairman of the British Conservative Party, the Rt. Hon. Lord Thorneycroft, explained the approach in his publication “Design for Europe” published in 1947. This is what he said on page 17:
“……….no government dependent upon a democratic vote could possibly agree in advance to the sacrifices which any adequate plan must involve. The people must be led slowly and unconsciously into the abandonment of their traditional economic defenses……”
“THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO”
This issue of economics to prepare the ground for a Communist takeover is completely in accordance with the Communist Manifesto. The following extracts from the Manifesto of the Communist Party BY Karl Marx and Frederick Engels make the point quite clear:
“Nevertheless in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable:
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
These are just four from the ten points laid down for preparing a country for a Communist takeover. Recently a programme on British television admitted that Great Britain was a long way down this road to Communism.
This Communist economic programme is unfortunately well advanced, and I must say here that I speak particularly of British experience, both under Socialist and Conservative governments. Naturally as the programme advances it creates more problems which are then supposedly solved by yet more control and in Britain by such bodies as the National Enterprise Board which is in fact helping to take over private industry through the back door.
However, the Communists in Great Britain not only support such instruments as the National Enterprise Board but explain how this will help to turn the European Community into a Communist entity in the future.
A “Communism For Europe” pamphlet entitled “A reply to Michael Barratt Brown” makes the point very clearly when they say:
“The National Enterprise Board is perfectly compatible with EEC rules. Agencies similar to the NEB are already operating in Italy, France and Germany. In fact the NEB is taken from the example of the Italian state holding company (IRI) which has been the Italian government’s main tool in achieving its economic objectives and the IRI has (among other things) played an important role in the prevention of foreign takeovers in key sectors of the Italian economy.
“The same argument applies to the proposed Planning Agreements, which is largely based on the French planning system. The NEB would be most effective when co-operating with similar state holding companies in the EEC, and alongside a European Planning system could lay the basis for a planned socialist economy in Europe.”
The polite term “planned socialist economy” means in plain language a communist economy. What “Communists For Europe” don’t say is that the Italian IRI was first introduced by the Fascist Mussolini!
COMMUNISTS FOR EUROPE
Some people have been surprised to hear that there is such a group as “Communist For Europe”. The largest sign in the front of the crowd at former British Conservative Prime Minister Mr. Edward Heath’s Trafalgar Square meeting a few year ago, was in fact “Communists For Europe.”
“Communists For Europe” just like the European Movement stands for – amongst other things – “A democratic Union of European Nations” and “The transfer of Sovereign Political Power from the nine member states of the EEC to the European Parliament.”
This group in their pamphlet a “Reply to Michael Barratt Brown” goes on to say:
“In referring to the constitution of the present European Parliament, Mr. George Spenale, Chairman of the Socialist Group therein pointed out that:
“as a result of recent elections….the group’s membership has increased from 42 to 50, thus bringing it close to the strength of the Christian Democratic Group. If the Labor Party were to lift its boycott there would be 67 members in the group, making it by far the largest.”
“a democratic structure, something going beyond the treaties of Rome…..which it has been suggested should be given the function of a Constituent Assembly, something that would make this Parliament of ours the rallying point for the peoples in crisis and a window on the future, built on the unity of democratic forces.” (George Amendola, Italian Communist Party, speech in the European Parliament).”
To the superficial follower of events, the Russian Communists are supposedly against the European Community. This has helped the growth of the myth of Euro-Communism as some sort of ‘safe’ communism, which can be trusted to work along ‘democratic’ lines. In reality, it is just Communist tactics operating in accordance with ‘dialectical materialism’ as mentioned earlier.
Whilst the myth of ‘Euro-Communism’ grows the Russian Communists work on quietly through various channels to strengthen the European Community and find ways of working with it and within it.
The meetings in Moscow and elsewhere between officials of the Common Market Commission and officials of Comecon, the East European Communist bloc is the next stage for the complete enslavement of ALL Europe by the Communists if we allow them to get away with their moves.
Even The Daily Telegraph (London) admitted that the Moscow meeting took place at the insistence of the Communist Parties INSIDE THE COMMON MARKET.
The Communist objective is simple. They know that under the Treaty of Rome the power of the separate countries inside the European Community to make separate trade agreements has been taken away from them and the various countries are forced to await proposals from the Commission without which no initiative can be taken. This ties nine European countries into a centralized structure. The Russian also want to strengthen the control over their satellite countries. Their instrument is Comecon and this is made easier by the inability of the major nations of Western Europe to deal direct with third countries even if they wanted to. We should be working for the freedom of these Captive Nations not helping the jailers to keep them under even tighter control.
The reality is that the essence or central feature of Communism is the centralization of power into fewer and fewer hands until the ‘mass’ becomes just something to manipulate and control. The largely impersonal structure of the Eastern European Community is basically the same. It can, therefore, be concluded that the Communist really want the European Community where countries lose their independence and can be more easily controlled, if necessary by force as provided by the Treaty of Rome itself.
A “UNITED STATES OF EUROPE”
One further proof is needed. What has been the real Communist line on the Common Market question?
Leon Trotsky said in Bolshevik and World Peace (1918):
“The task of the Proletariat is to create a far more powerful fatherland with a far greater power of resistance –the Republican United States of Europe as the foundation of the United States of the World.”
Lenin wrote (No. 40 of the Russian organ of the Social Democrat) in 1915:”The United States of the World (and not only of Europe) that is the state formula of the union, and of the liberty of nations which we attach to Socialism, until the day when the complete victory of Communism will bring about the definite disappearance of every state, even purely democratic.”
In 1915-16 Trotsky wrote in Nashe Slovo, published in Paris, “The United States of Europe is the motto of the revolutionary age into which we have emerged.”
In 1923, in the Communist Review (monthly organ of the Communist Party of Great Britain) Trotsky said again, “The United States of Europe should be the new slogan of the Communists”; and he proposed the formation of the Federative Union of Europe, to which the Soviet Union would adhere. Whether Great Britain could be included in this “depended on the pace at which her revolutionary development proceeded.”
Anatole France, Internationalist, and intellectual Communist wrote (Daily Herald 19/8/27) “The separate nations will come to an end, and they will, in all probability, be replaced by the United States of Europe, the Republic of the World.”
The research for the above quotations was done by Nesta Webster – at one time a Research Officer for the British Conservative Party Central Office until she found too many unacceptable truths – in her book The Surrender of an Empire in the chapter headed “The United States of Europe.”
Far from hampering the International Communist conspiracy, a monolithic structure in Western Europe fostering the very concentration of economic power which Communist teaching declares leads towards the Communist State, and run by a super-bureaucracy, must be regarded with pleasant anticipation by Communist strategists. It should also be noted that a report from Moscow, transmitted by British United Press in the late summer of 1962, stated that a Conference of Communist economists from 23 countries, including from Common Market countries, had agreed that their national Communist Parties should try to gain a hand in the directing bodies of the Market. These economists also agreed that it was desirable that Britain should join the E.E.C.
The Chinese Communists are providing a sort of ‘dialectical’ pincer movement to aid the destruction of national freedom and independence in Europe. The Chinese Communists have given their open support to the growth of the European Community which they see as an aid to them in their ideological differences with the Russian Communists. However, this provides no assistance to those who believe in national freedom or in resisting communist aggression.
The result of the Chinese Communist tactical maneuver has been what appears to be an alliance between many so-called British Conservative Party members and the Chinese Communists against the Russian Communists. Many prominent British Conservative Party Members of Parliament have therefore been to visit the Chinese mainland. Most notable amongst them being the leader of the Opposition, Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister Edward Health and Sir Frederick Bennett.
Following these various visits to the Communist Chinese mainland we have seen the growth of the trade between Britain and the Communist Chinese, even to the point of providing military aircraft which can be used not only against the Republic of China but also against other free nations in Asia which is something which the British Chapter deplores and condemns.
However, the spurious argument presented for the justification of this trade is that it helps to strengthen the British economy. It is, of course, providing economic blood transfusions to the Chinese Communists as was so carefully documented in the Crown Commonwealth League of Rights which was presented to the 9th World Anti-Communist League Conference in Seoul. South Korea in 1976. This report was of course fully adopted by WACL at its 10th Conference in Taipei, the Republic of China in 1977.
The next stage for the destruction of National Freedom in Europe is the enlargement of the European Community to include more countries of Europe whilst at the same time, behind the scenes, preparation is being made for Economic and Monetary Union. Economic and Monetary Union involves the complete centralization of the money supply and the creation of credit; this is in complete accord with the Communist Manifesto as quoted earlier.
The interesting aspect of this whole affair is the role of international finances and big business. The people and organizations are documented in the Crown Commonwealth League of Rights report referred to earlier. The same people and organizations financed the original Russian Bolshevik Revolution (see Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution by Dr. Anthony C. Sutton), and the same people and organizations have been behind financing the propaganda in favor of the European Community and the revolutionary destruction of National Freedom in Europe which in turn aids both Communist expansion and aggression along its road to world domination.
SUGGESTIONS FOR FREE NATIONS
Finally, what can be done about the situation?
The first essential is to recognize what really are the plans with respect to the European Community and expose them. The countries of Europe who are already in the European Community must be encouraged to reject the next stage of Economic and Monetary Union as well as being encouraged to assert their national sovereignty and thus claim back their national freedom. Already in Britain, there are moves in both Conservative and Labor Party circles calling for a complete revision of the Treaty of Rome and the removal of all supra-national institutions which seek to control the policies of what should be the free countries of Europe. Those countries such as Spain, Greece, and Portugal who are being urged to join the European Community must be warned of the trap being prepared.
All this was said and written nearly a generation ago. Lots happened in these 38 years. Europe lost her independence, so did Britain so did the rest of the world.
What is very clear in this article is how we are being deceived and lied to, nothing is at it seems.
The Communists, the Bolsheviki the Money Power, call them what you will, are trying their utmost to reach their goal to destroy the heritage and all the White Race held dear. With swamping Europe with Africans, by whatever name you want to call them, asylum seekers, refugees, the ultimate goal is to destroy not only the infrastructure but the White Race itself.
The soul of the White Race is not that easy to destroy, it eventually, sooner rather than later, will end in the spilling of blood. But no question the White Race will be Victorious, so we must believe and to this end, we must aspire.
