George Soros is coming to grips with political reality.
The growing populist uprising across Europe is poised to leave its mark in the 2019 elections for the European Parliament.
This has the Hungarian-born financial oligarch worried.
In an article for Project Syndicate, Soros said “Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late. If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991.”
Soros can complain all he wants, but Europeans are actually waking up. And for reasons opposed to the seasoned globalist’s agenda.
Soros should be worried, given his position as Chair of the Open Society Foundations, an organization that has labored diligently to eradicate the concept of national sovereignty.
Despite taking advantage of the Syrian Civil War to facilitate the mass migration of refugees to Europe, Soros has been facing numerous roadblocks in the past two years.
Since Brexit occurred in 2016, populist movements have popped up all over Europe. Europe’s current refugee crisis has been one of their chief concerns, as cities in the United Kingdom and Sweden have become hosts to no-go zones and immigrant ghettoes filled with crime.
While not all of these populist movements want to have their respective countries leaving the EU, they at least question the EU’s migration policies and heavy-handed approach to decision-making.
At the end of the day, Soro’s dream of a “unified Europe” is simply a fantasy. With dozens of different cultures and languages on the European continent, the prospect of a United States of Europe is a pipe dream.
Trying to pull off such a feat will come with plenty of political tension as witnessed with Brexit and the “Yellow Vest” protests in France.
If anything, the EU should go the way of the Soviet Union and break apart.
Competition between political jurisdictions like nation-states is what made Europe the most prosperous region in human history.
A bloated super-state, with an isolated political class in Brussels, the EU has outlived its original purpose as a customs union. In its present form, the EU is a hub for globalism and political centralization; completely ignoring the will of constituents outside of Brussels.
Maybe, those “reactionary” nationalists were on to something all this time.
The closer policymaking is to the people, the better.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?
Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?
Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.
Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”
However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.
The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.
In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.
One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.
The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”
The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”
Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”
Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.
His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”
Sanders responded, “Yes.”
Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.
All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.
Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
