European Quotes A-Z by Author
The most immediate task is to make certain
that no state or combination of states gains
the capacity to expel the United States
from Eurasia or even to diminish significantly
its decisive arbitration role.
Brzezinski - America
Too rich to be relevant to the world's poor,
Europe attracts immigration but cannot encourage
imitation. Too passive regarding international
security. Too self-satisfied, it acts as
if its central political goal is to become
the worlds most comfortable retirement home.
Too set in its ways, it fears multicultural
Brzezinski - Geopolitics
The threat of China is not military. The
threat of China is they can't be intimidated.
Europe you can intimidate. When the US tries
to get people to stop investing in Iran,
European companies pull out, China disregards
it. You look at history and understand why
they've been around for 4,000 years,
they have contempt for the barbarians, they
just don't give a damn.
Chomsky - China
I think Israel, as a number of commentators
pointed out, is becoming an insane state.
And we have to be honest about that. While
the rest of the world wants peace, Europe
wants peace, the US wants peace, but this
state wants war, war and war.
Finkelstein - Israel
Goldman Sachs was fundamentally responsible
for the crash of 2008, but by that time
its former Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, Henry 'Hank' Paulson, had been
installed as US Treasury Secretary to begin
the bank bail out policy, with enormous
benefit to Goldman Sachs, in the closing
weeks of the Bush
administration. Goldman Sachs was also instrumental
in the collapse of the economy in Greece
that started the 'euro panic' that later
Icke - CEO
Sachs - Collapse
I've been seeing the change. It's been steady.
It's been more controlled than people think.
And my own belief is that China knows it
also needs to be part of the world, and
that it needs to be able to have trade with
Europe and the United
States in order to house and feed a
billion people. That's really kind of single-mindedly
what they see their role as being.
Immelt - Belief
The New World Order is a more palatable
name for the Anglo American world empire.
It's the planetary domination of London,
New York, Washington over the rest of the
world. It's hard to get people to join that
or think they have a part in it if you called
it the Anglo American world empire. If you
call it the New World Order, then people
in India or some place like that or the
European Union might think, "Well,
there's something there for us too."
But that's not what it is; it's the Anglo
American New World Order.
Jones - World
By creating the European Central Bank, the
member states exposed their own government
bonds to the risk of default. Developed
countries that issue bonds in their own
currency never default, because they can
always print money. Their currency may depreciate,
but the risk of default is absent.
Soros - Europe
It is now clear that the main cause of the
euro crisis is the member states surrender
of their right to print money to the European
Central Bank. They did not understand just
what that surrender entailed and
neither did the European authorities.
Soros - Europe
In 2012, the far-right Golden Dawn won 21
seats in Greeces parliamentary election,
the right-wing Jobbik gained ground in my
native Hungary, and the National Fronts
Marine Le Pen received strong backing in
Frances presidential election. Growing
support for similar forces across Europe
points to an inescapable conclusion: the
continents prolonged financial crisis
is creating a crisis of values that is now
threatening the European Union itself.
