The European Union seeks to fully integrate all of Africa into the European monetary zone by 2050, its president Jose Manuel Barroso has announced. This move will inevitably lead to full political integration as well.
The plan, revealed at the EU-Africa Summit held this week in Tripoli, Libya, seeks to create an expanded Eurozone into Africa which will add another 2.5 billion people from 80 African countries into a “new alliance between Europe and Africa,” European Commission president Mr Barroso said.
“We have come to Tripoli with the fascinating long-term perspective of a Euro-African economic area in mind, an area which will provide opportunities for 2.5 billion citizens by 2050,” Mr Barroso, who is a “former” member of the Portuguese Communist Party, said.
“The economic and financial crisis is not over yet. But as we work to emerge from it, new avenues for Africa and Europe to restore and accelerate growth are opened,” he added.
The recent crisis in Greece and the ongoing crises in Ireland and Spain show the Eurozone does not even function effectively within Europe.
The primary reason for the Eurozone malfunction within Europe are the differences in economic output and makeup in these European nations, which leads to discordances in debt levels, trade figures and other critical economic indicators.
The vast disparities between African economies and European economies make a combined currency zone utter madness.
In fact, the economies of most African states make Greece look like some perfectly functioning Swiss Bank.
Africa is the world's poorest inhabited continent. Of the 175 countries reviewed in the United Nations' Human Development Report 2003, 25 African nations ranked lowest amongst the nations of the world.
The African Economic Outlook, an annual reference book-journal which focuses on the economics of most African countries, is published by the OECD Development Centre and the African Development Bank.
This journal pointed out that the economies of China and India have grown rapidly, and Latin America has experienced moderate growth, while Africa, in contrast, “has stagnated and even regressed in terms of foreign trade, investment, per capita income, and other economic growth measures.”
The African economic disaster runs contrary to modern economic theory, which claims that increased population growth and urbanisation leads to economic development.
In Africa, precisely the opposite has happened. By any measure, endemic warfare, unrest, corruption, despotic regimes and poverty have increased in Africa, and not decreased.
All of Africa (encompassing 52 countries including the relatively better-off North African Arab states and the minority white population of South Africa) has a gross domestic product (GDP, nominal) of only $1.2 billion (2008 figures supplied by the International Monetary Fund).
This equates to 2 percent of the world’s total GDP of around $60 billion.
Europe’s GDP (nominal), by contrast, stood in 2008 at $22.2 billion, nearly a quarter of the world’s total GDP.
To make matters worse, there is no correlation in Africa between natural resources and quality of life. Angola, for example, has large diamond and oil resources, but is a textbook case of poverty and destruction.
African nations dominate the lower reaches of the UN Human Development Index. Infant mortality is high, while life expectancy, literacy, and education are all low.
Although liberals have tried to invent many excuses for the ongoing disaster in Africa (mostly consisting of blaming whites for “colonisation”), the reality is that the primary cause of Africa’s backwardness is the astoundingly low IQ levels prevalent on that continent.
As discussed in the June 2005 issue of Psychology, Public Policy and Law, a journal of the American Psychological Association, the average IQ in sub-Saharan Africa is 70.
Bearing in mind that this is the average, this figure means that half of all Africans have an IQ below 70. Most of those scoring above 70 will be clustered in the 70-80 range, with the rest flattening out sharply as the IQ rises (as is the case with all IQ ‘bell curve’ graphs).
The shocking meaning of this statistic takes on an added dimension when posited against the definitions of IQ levels as detailed in a psychology-industry standard handbook, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), issued by the American Psychiatric Association in 1994.
According to that book, an IQ of between 71 and 84 is officially classified as “borderline intellectual functioning” while an IQ below 70 is officially classified as “mild mental retardation.”
In their book, IQ and the Wealth of Nations, Dr Richard Lynn, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, and Dr Tatu Vanhanen, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland, found that differences in national income (in the form of per capita gross domestic product) correlate with differences in the average national intelligence quotient (IQ).
The European Commission’s plan to integrate all of Africa into the Eurozone is the precursor to full political integration, as has already been mapped out in Europe.
This move, along with the equally insane mass immigration policies pursued by all the governing parties in Europe, will ensure that Europe will die — unless patriots from all European nations act together to avoid this catastrophe.
