"Strength through Unity" EU sloganeering

#1
Today Programme 6 Nov 09 2hrs 50mins 27secs onwards

Strength through unity was the facist slogan against which a generation fought to free europe.
To hear multiple variations of this phrase being churned out without any sense ofunease by a senior EU rep was deeply disturbing.

So next we'll be hearing "Freedom is Slavery" then?

Or "Strength through Joy"?

Really is worrying that they can blithely come out with this crap without even considering the connotations.

In fact, what might be more worrying is if they understand, accept and agree with the connotations 8O

I think actually the phrase was borrowed from the Dutch republic....it was a saying they had.

"Strength through unity, unity through faith"

The slogans of "Norsefire", the fascist party running the UK in "V for Vendetta".

Sorry for being a bit of a geek there

Where do I sign up?

That's the only argument for greater involvement in Europe that's ever made sense for anyone other than politicians and countries other than us. Pure genius.
