While the EU reaction to Britain’s decision to leave may seem somewhat hysterical, yet, I believe that the root cause can be traced back to the founding of the CFR and public relations pundit Edward Bernays.
While the memory of Bernays has been receiving some publicity in recent years it is probable that most people have not heard of him. May I refer you to his Wikipedia biography for a quick brush up.
Now, Bernays and his Party had no confidence in the electorate to follow the course his Party approved so that he, reflecting CFR policies, began a course of propaganda favored by the CFR elites to manage the psyche of the hoi polloi to prevent them from taking a course independent of the CFR (Council of Foreign Relations.)
The Brexit vote confirmed what Bernays and the CFR feared. Peter Brimelow writing in his on-line magazine VDare quotes a Glenn Reynolds from the 6/26/16 issue of USA Today:
The inability of these elites (CFR) to grapple with the rich (first) world’s populist moment has been on full display on social media journalists and academics (check the organizations these people belong to and represent) seemed to feel that they had not made it sufficiently clear that people who oppose open borders are a bunch of racist rubes who couldn’t count to twenty with their shoes on and hence believe any daft thing they’re told.
So, after nearly a hundred years of indoctrination and conditioning the guiding elite of Bernays have failed in their effort to control the stupid, ignorant psyches of the masses. Thus populist is a dirty word equivalent to knuckle draggers and all other nasty terms the Elites use to describe what they consider their inferiors.
Mr. Reynolds neatly explains further.
A lot of people do not view their country the way some elites do: as though the nation were something like a rental apartment—a nice place to live, but if there are problems, or you just fancy a change, you’ll happily swap it for a new one. In many ways, members of the global professional class have started to identify more with each other than they have with their fellow residents of their own countries. Witness the emotional meltdown many American journalists have been having on Brexit.
Reynolds is incorrect in saying ‘starting to identify more with each other.’ They always have since the founding of the CFR in 1921 and Bernay’s announcing the program for Elites to control what they consider their human cattle. The ranch is the world and the Elites are the ranch owners.
As cattle drivers they fear Donald Trump as a rogue bull who will stampede the herd away from the Dodge City cattle yards on the way to the Chicago stock yards and slaughter houses.
The Elites are facing a major breakdown in their century old effort. They have grown impatient and simply pushed too hard and too fast. The question now is will the cattle trample their herders or will the herders slaughter enough of the bellwether steers to turn the stampede.
Unfortunately for the Elites their identities, if not commonly, are known or easily discovered. The world then is now placed in a very precarious position. It is us or them.
