Is this what the people of Iceland courageously brought down their government for? No. But it’s what they’re going to get once their IMF advisors are done with them. Iceland, being one of the smallest (and therefore most vulnerable) economies in the western world has gone through this transition rapidly but the same thing is happening here by degrees. The much-hyped ‘green shoots’ of recovery notwithstanding, the world economy has been staggered by central banks by design in order to create the economic pressures required to bind nations together for what we’re being told is our mutual economic security. The fraudulent war on terror enabled the institution of police state measures, the creeping regimentation of society, and an ongoing attack on individual rights. The economic crisis has enabled calls for a new international economic order and regional and global ‘governance’, and the central bankers are posing as our saviours. Disgusting. This is all happening right now, and the citizens of the world are sleepwalking into a high tech, micromanaged, taxed and tracked neo-fuedalist nightmare. The question for history is, will they lie down and take it? Please, do yourself a favour, take a moment, and just scan through the links at the end of this posting. The mainstream media can scoff and jeer about the notion of world government but it’s all there, it’s all out in the open.

Iceland’s parliament voted to apply for membership of the European Union, opting to relinquish some of the crisis-hit country’s cherished independence in the name of economic stability.
Members of Iceland’s parliament, the Althingi, voted 33-28 to start membership talks with the EU. Two MPs abstained. The prime minister, Johanna Sigurdardottir, wants to submit a membership application to the EU by the end of the month.
A final decision to join the 27-nation bloc would need approval by Icelanders in a referendum.
Iceland’s economy took a battering last year when the country’s banking sector and currency collapsed and the volcanic island became an early casualty of the global economic crisis. The disaster forced Icelanders to consider seeking the shelter, and restrictions, of membership in the EU and possibly the euro currency.
