How The Elites Are Divorcing From Reality: The Economist’s “What If”, by Gefira

Europe is beyond saving. Give it a year and nobody will show French President Emmanuel Macron walking on water. From gefira.org:

The Western globalist elites have not digested Trump’s victory or Brexit yet. They are having a hard time dealing with their ideological failures, and when the reality dares not to comply with their day dreaming, they go online and create a parallel world, where their “expert” predictions always turn right and their failures cannot be questioned. The Economist‘s portal named “what if”, a neo-liberal, wishful thinking echo chamber, is the point in case.

Its latest piece1)attributes magical powers to the new hero of the elites, Emmanuel Macron, who soundly defeated “evil” Marine Le Pen in May. For The Economist, Macron is nothing short of Jesus as he was correspondingly depicted on the monthly’s cover walking on water:

The hypothetical scenario of Macron’s success is based on magical reforms that will somehow create enormous numbers of jobs after an initial friction and fix the out-of-control state budget. The text provides no answer how exactly all this is going to be done. The happy predictions do not stop there. Macron’s miracle, would turn France into another Silicon Valley, a paradise for start-ups. Does it not make us think back to the internet bubble of the 90s? After “making France great again” and defeating Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, Marine’s niece (who for the record has already retired from politics, but don’t tell The Economist, it’d break their narrative, they need an evil antagonist), Macron’s magic would next make Europe great again. Academic papers on the “French Renaissance” are beginning to appear, says the article’s author, an intellectual liberal himself and Macron’s flunky. He speaks of “EU-funded military operations in the Sahel”, because clearly that’s what Europe needs most. Why, destabilizing surrounding countries has worked very well so far, hasn’t it? Islamic terrorism isn’t even touched in the article, so we gather it will magically disappear as will the problems of the banlieu which do not deserve much mention either. Here, too, no solution is offered, just pure magic.

  1. From the article: “….who would get those 78$ trillion? The elites, and next they will bribe academics and intellectuals to post articles like that one. Indeed The Economist is owned by the world’s most elitist family, the Rothschilds. Very much like their puppet, Macron, who by the way worked for a Rothschild bank.”

    I had read somewhere about the Rothschilds ownership of the magazine, so I googled it–> Guardian 2015 article:

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/aug/15/economist-becomes-a-family-affair-agnellis

    A few of several nuggets:

    “Pearson, the education and publishing giant that has held a non-controlling 50% stake since 1928, is selling the holding for £469m. The deal will make Italy’s Agnelli family, founders of the Fiat car empire, the largest shareholder, with fellow owners reading like a Who’s Who of British business dynasties, including the Cadbury, Layton, Rothschild and Schroder families.”

    “Newspapers have long been the playthings of wealthy media barons who are seduced by the access and influence they bring.”

    ” Under the deal, Exor will hold a 43% stake; the next biggest shareholder is the Rothschild family with 26%.”

    Apparently, the deal went through, at least according to wikipedia:

    The SLL cited article was very informative and I have added gefira.org to my blog list. Thanks.
