    Habsburg EUmpire

    http://en.theeuropean.eu/franz-stefa...ng-anachronism

    This article makes the case for the EU to be the Austrian Empire 2.0 (Austria being HRE II), but while extolling Europe's multicultural basis from Austria-Hungary, simultaneously decries any comparison with its autocracy. It is so obvious how both multiculturalism and autocracy characterize each establishment. Some are too quick to judge Germany harshly because of it being the largest state of the European Union, but it is hardly the origin of the same. All criticisms ought to be redirected from Berlin to Vienna (and Budapest too, don't forget, LOL). I would like Germany to not bear the blame of EU policies, even as she bears the burdens already (the 12 Labors of Hermann for redemption from WWII?). It seems like Austria comes up with a lot of stuff to just pass off onto Germany. If only the Allied Powers had remained on the ground in Austria instead of Germany and that it would have suffered division instead for those 45 years. What was Otto von Habsburg doing all those years of his life as heir to the throne? Was he into the Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group and Council of Foreign Relations?

    If the EU is a macrocosm to the microcosm that is the HRE, the obvious fulcrum is balanced by a Romance party represented by the Lombards and a Germanic party represented by the French. Those two formed the HRE under Charlemagne--when he took the Iron Crown, then were revived under Napoleon--when he became King of Italy. The addition of Burgundy to the HRE would have been at the centre of Franco-Lombard interests and the basis of Switzerland, whereas the incorporation of Bohemia opened the way for Ostsiedlung and EU expansion among Balto-Slavs. It's natural that Celts belong with Germans, Greeks with Romans, biogeography seeing to round off the edges. The end result is an EU composed of most types of folks in the end, based upon the three language families already present in the HRE, adding to the Romance, Germanic and Balto-Slavic core. Not everyone wants to be part of this fusion, even if they are ethnolinguistically part of the base.

    Why does White society have to be based on a Rome-Berlin Axis? Why not Anglo-Celtic or Swedo-Finnic centres of Germanic focus? What makes the Italic peoples so special, that Germanic folks must bank everything on this feudal relationship? Anyone who debases himself before the Pope is a coward and likely homophile altar boy. This is not a characteristic of free Teutonic tribes, just the method by which Teutons are disposed of through mass immigration, called divide and conquer, an old Greco-Roman trick.

    Mostly living abroad in Spain , Portugal, and the US. The Führer revoked his citizenship after the Anschlüß and was under threat of arrest. After the war his title was not recognized by the Austrian government and he was, at the time, stateless. He had no powers in Austria or anywhere else though he was offered the Kingship of Spain. He declined.

    Are you sure he wasn't working behind the scenes, like Himmler's daughter Gudrun? Powerful families like that, don't just slip into obscurity, unless secrecy is required to achieve their mafioso goals in smoke-filled rooms. Who else can be credited for the European Union, really? I doubt the Habsburgs were inconsequential.
