Spjegazzjoni akkurata, one of the best posts i enjoyed reading it and makes the utmost sence in terms of idea. Tajt vizjoni bi spjegazzjoni f'ezempji ta espansjonijiet li diga sehhew fil passat, pero ghati definizzjoni ta kif din l- idea ser tibda tigi implimentata!
 Fi Credo ,artikli li ktibt fis sena 1980 irrizultaw li materjalizzaw dawn l-ahhar snin fosthom meta fis sena 1980 semmejt li dan l- imperjum ghandu jkollu munita wahda. turi bic car li dan il block qed jevolvi, veru fil kotba jinkitbu t- teorijji pero kif mill att ta pratticita dan l- imperu tal futur ser isehh?

"But the greatest opposition of all has not yet been named, the conflict which will take up all the others into itself. This is the battle of the Idea of the Unity of the West against the nationalism of the 19th century. Here stand opposed the ideas of Empire and petty-stateism, large-space thinking and political provincialism. Here find themselves opposed the miserable collection of yesterday-patriots and the custodians of the Future. The yesterday-nationalists are nothing but the puppets of the extra-European forces who conquer Europe by dividing it. To the enemies of Europe, there must be no rapprochement, no understanding, no union of the old units of Europe into a new unit, capable of carrying on 20th century politics.

In the previous seven High Cultures, the period of the nationalistic disease was liquidated by the spread of one feeling over the whole Civilization. It was not unaccompanied by wars, for the Past has always, and will always, fight against the Future. Life is war, and to wish to create is to bring about the opposition of the great Nay-sayers, those whose existence is tied to the Past, is sunk into the Past. The division of the Civilization was in each case resolved by the reunion of the Civilization, the reassertion of its old, original, exclusiveness and unity. In each case, from petty-stateism came Empire. The Empire Idea was so strong that no inner force could oppose it with hope of success." -- Francis P. Yockey, Imperium

Francis P. Yockey: Imperium.
FPY: a superman who knew who the enemy is:
The Real Enemy.

We, of Imperium Europa:
are carrying on, where FPY left off.
We will fulfill his dream of Europid Empire.

He was assassinated in his prime.
A Hero for the imminent Imperium Europa.
We pick up his sword and stride forward.

The IDEA of Imperium is slowly, seeping through.
The death of the Nation State is inevitable.
We need to prepare for the imminent collapse.
 
Only Imperium Europa will be able to stop the ensuing fratricides.
Whites killing Whites again - with the Rodents fanning the fires.
We need to give that Unifying IDEA that will bind us all.

'Bonghjornu' not 'Bonjour': Corsican nationalists want to say it their way
Islanders want official mainland recognition of their language


A group of ten-year-old schoolchildren on the Mediterranean island of Corsica proudly raised their hands in class one morning this week to say they felt Corsican, not French.

Their teacher, Nathalie Lanfranchi, grew up speaking French at home but now talks with her daughters in Corsican and teaches in both languages in this school in the outskirts of the island's biggest city, Ajaccio.

In some countries, that would raise few eyebrows.

But for France, a centralised state with a single, national identity and only one official language, Corsica's demand for more autonomy is a challenge.

The children - 11 consider themselves to be only Corsican, one only French and one claims both identities - greeted visitors with a cheerful Corsican "Bonghjornu" rather than the French "Bonjour".

But President Emmanuel Macron may face a cooler welcome when he visits the island next week after ministers infuriated Corsica's nationalist leaders by refusing several of their demands, including official status for the Corsican language.

"Our goodwill has been taken for weakness by Paris but we are not weak, we are strong with the support of Corsicans," said regional parliament speaker Jean-Guy Talamoni.

"Corsicans want to be recognised as a nation," he said, adding that a protest march on Saturday would show just that.

Unlike Spain and Germany, France has always been reluctant to give much power to its regions, despite some decentralisation in the 1980s.

With nationalism on the rise, as in Catalonia and other regions of Europe, Corsicans elected nationalist leaders in December and Macron now faces demands for local powers over issues as varied as taxation and property buying.

No French flag

While the French tricolour flies over official buildings throughout France, it was not to be seen in Talamoni's office, or on the front of the town hall in Granace, a tiny village of ancient stone houses in southern Corsica.

Instead, mayor Jean-Yves Leandri proudly displayed the black-and-white flag with a Moor's head that symbolises Corsica.

Rather than the tricolour sash French elected officials wear for ceremonial duties, Leandri conducts weddings with one he had specially made, again adorned with a Moor's head. He never went to pick up the portrait of Macron that should be hanging on his wall.

"We took away the French flag, it's got nothing to do here, it's Corsica," the 54-year-old mayor said.

Leandri, a nationalist since his early 20s, is not the first in his family to be elected mayor of the village of about 100 souls. But he is the first nationalist.

Nationalist groups had staged thousands of attacks over four decades before laying down their weapons in 2014, and it took a long time to convince voters to back nationalist politicians, Leandri said.

"People used to be afraid of us," he said. He managed to convince people to vote for him only when the violence stopped.

"Now we need to work, and work more than the others, to build a country," he said.

Autonomy or independence?

In a sign of how widespread demands for autonomy have become in Corsica, Jean-Andre Miniconi, a local business leader, said authorities on the island needed more powers to boost its economy and deal with specific problems such as higher transport costs and a shortage of affordable housing.

Even the conservative mayor of Ajaccio, Laurent Marcangeli, said he favoured giving the Corsican language official status alongside French, and wanted special status for the island in the French constitution.

But where they differ with nationalists, and where even nationalists disagree among themselves, is on whether autonomy would be enough or if they should aim for independence.

In wealthy Catalonia, which has had wide powers and where Catalan is an official language, Corsica's demands for autonomy would seem modest.

But Corsica has only 325,000 inhabitants and accounts for less than 0.5 percent of France's economy. One in five inhabitants lives under the poverty threshold.

Parliament speaker Talamoni, who wants independence at some point in the future and calls France "a neighbouring country", says independence currently only has minority support and Corsica must first build up its economy and administrative infrastructure.

He struck a 10-year deal with nationalist politician Gilles Simeoni, who is also not a separatist, to seek more powers for Corsica but not independence.

This pact, together with the new-found peace and disillusion with mainstream parties, propelled them to victory in December, with Simeoni emerging to lead the regional government.

While they must convince Macron to delegate powers to their region, Simeoni and Talamoni must also ensure that activists who fought for such powers, often by blowing up buildings and attacking government officials, don't feel left out, said Jean-Paul Carrolaggi, a veteran separatist.

Simeoni said Macron must show next week that he is willing to heed some of their demands, warning that some return to violence on the island could not be excluded if Corsicans felt they were not being heard.

Interesting. Corsica is not French, it is Ligurian: parlano il-dialetto Ligurese.
Their National Hero is Pasquale Paoli, not Napoleon (who is considered a traitor by many Corsicans - a lackey of the French, as was his father).
He betrayed Paoli (who was exiled twice by France) and where he died in London.

And this is our Vision of Regions and Peoples.
Regions that will revert to their old borders, traditions, dialects, customs...
Free Regions, unlike the one-size-fit-all present, Judaic EU (Economic Union).

So important that We, of Imperium Europa will be elected to Brussels in May 2019.
We will NOT be discussing petty politics and corruption in Malta over there -
as Metsola il-Pecluqa does, for lack of any original, higher ideas.

We will change this Judaic IE into a Nova Europa - eventually IMPERIUM EUROPA by 2032.
