Spain Has Its ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ Moment
– Another Milestone Reached


13 July 2012

Technically the pampered Spanish princess said, ‘screw them all’ rather than ‘let them eat cake.’ She is only saying what most of the Western elite are thinking about ‘the problem of the hoi polloi.’

After the brazen theft of customer money by a well-connected financier, I said I was waiting for another shoe to drop, another milestone to be reached on this cycle of history.

I should add that a single instance of something obviously does not make a trend. It is the trend that is of significance. Do the perpetrators become emboldened, or does a horror of recognition bring things back into balance? No one wakes up one morning and decides, “I think I shall become a monster.” Evil is a process of abnormality with which one becomes increasingly familiar, accepting,– comfortable.

The next step in the rise of statism is capital controls, media suppression, and the increased repression of dissent by physical means and censorship. After that is the singling out of certain ethnic and religious groups for ‘special treatment,’ and campaigns to establish the ‘otherness’ of select targets. This could also be related to some age or class group, or even the disabled.

And then murder, first occasional and then systematic. It may take the form of starvation, denial of medical treatment, non-elective abortion, or euthanasia at first. Hopefully we will not progress as far on the cycle as any of these latter stage developments.

Here is a note from a friend about a news item that has not penetrated the Anglo-American news media yet.

Spain is implementing its latest austerity package. Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy Raises VAT 3pc in Shock U-Turn

When the Prime Minister Rajoy said to their National Assembly that they must cut benefits to Spain’s unemployed, Miss Fabra was apparently caught on video shouting, “Screw them all.”
