I’ve just picked up The Great Deception by Christopher Booker and Richard North, which finally provides a complete history of where the EU ideology came from. While I have read only the first couple of chapters, I find it so well researched and rich in detail I feel like passing on the tip to others before finishing it myself.
This books also provides an answer to a blog comment a couple of weeks ago where someone asked for a brief story of the European Union and its principles. 600+ pages isn’t exactly “brief”, at least it does provide the story. It requires some reading to be able to pinpoint what exactly the Union is doing, and why it does things in the weird ways we see.

Rejecting the Constitution Treaty was a major blow to the plans of the Europhiles. But instead of doing the obvious, a complete retooling of the entire EU system, they chose to push the Treaty down our throats. This book reveals that it was perhaps more intentional than it seemed.
Though a serious and worthwhile book for everyone interested in the machinations of the European Union, it has largely been ignored by mainstream media, which is odd. They thus have to rely on “viral marketing” (that’s us) to make the book known. I hope it’ll work, for knowing the history of the Union will qualify us to react to what it does.
