MOULDING YOUNG MINDS OF THE FUTURE
YLE: In addition, over 10,000 ninth graders from 139 schools will take part in a trivia competition about the EU.
Yeah, we’ve seen this all before…….
Gee, do you think they’ll be asked trivia questions like these?
1.) What percentage of legislation passed by the parliaments of EU member states into law each year, originate in Brussels? (Answer: 70-75%)
2.) Does the EU parliament function like a real parliament in member states? (Answer: No, they cannot submit legislation, just suggest changes that are approved by the Commission)
3.) Name any individual mentioned by the media that works on any of the working committees that formulate future legislation for the commissions to hand to member state parliaments for rubber stamping? (Answer: No one actually knows who in the hell these people are and what conflicts of interest they might have.)
4.) Do the President of the Commission and President of the European Council run for elected office like presidents of member states? (Answer: No, elitist big shots behind closed doors do that for us.)
5.) Is the Lisbon Treaty actually the rejected EU constitution? (Answer: Yes.)
6.) Does the constitution entail the loss of national sovereignty? (Answer: Yes.)
7.) Is the following statement true of false: The EU is an entirely undemocratic federalist state, with an unelected Commission on top of a decision-making hierarchy. (Answer: Yes)
