I don't know, what you wanted to be demonstrated exactly. Can you be more specific?

Ever since the wall came down and cold war ended, US hegemony in Europe has been deployed against Russia, despite earlier promises to Gorbachev. Countries have been pushed to become Nato (and EU) members. That US foreign policy is being followed and furthered by the US vassals in the EU today, mostly led by Germany and France today. 

Audio from 2016:

We know what happened further on... (see second half of the following interview):

Sure. Thy will though doest again to thine members, as though hast done to the Greek, and so intendeth doing to the Spanish, Italians, Portuguese, and the French, if needed, and all them  other 'pickpockets' alike.

The Huns are not going to allow a union of pickpockets, they think, but do they think any further? - Perhaps, they just can't. 

Joint Declaration of the Prime Minister of Poland and the Prime Minister of Hungary ...

Our common proposal is to facilitate the speedy adoption of the financial package by establishing a two-track process. On the one hand, to limit the scope of any additional budgetary conditionality to the protection of the financial interests of the Union in accordance with the July conclusions of the European Council. On the other hand, to discuss in the European Council, whether a link between the Rule of Law and the financial interests of the Union should be established. If it is so decided, then the appropriate procedures foreseen by the Treaties, including convening an intergovernmental conference, should be considered in order to negotiate the necessary modification of the Treaties.
What a great state of the E-Union. MEGA-like, really, getting ready to drown? - During times of Covid, they wouldn't even think about that, officially, as long as they keep getting entranced by that smell. The smell of a 'Great Reset'. 

When history keeps unfolding it might not be more than a smell, after all...

oh grief, where do I start.. 

Despite what you might want to believe, the EU project was all about creating the structures and open markets required for peace in Europe. It is not about German hegemony as it has massive checks and balances built into its system. It is also fundamentally based on national sovereignty using a bottom-up system, so no, the sovereignty of either Poland or Hungary has not been called into question. From Wikipedia:

Through successive enlargements, the European Union has grown from the six founding states (Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands) to the current 27. Countries accede to the union by becoming party to the founding treaties, thereby subjecting themselves to the privileges and obligations of EU membership. This entails a partial delegation of sovereignty to the institutions in return for representation within those institutions, a practice often referred to as "pooling of sovereignty".[120][121]

To become a member, a country must meet the Copenhagen criteria, defined at the 1993 meeting of the European Council in Copenhagen. These require a stable democracy that respects human rights and the rule of law; a functioning market economy; and the acceptance of the obligations of membership, including EU law. Evaluation of a country's fulfilment of the criteria is the responsibility of the European Council.[122] Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty provides the basis for a member to leave the Union. Two territories have left the Union: Greenland (an autonomous province of Denmark) withdrew in 1985;[123] the United Kingdom formally invoked Article 50 of the Consolidated Treaty on European Union in 2017, and became the only sovereign state to leave when it withdrew from the EU in 2020.

So, like any club, membership gives you certain rights but also entails certain duties, like respecting human rights and the rule of law.
It doesn't mean you can stay a member of a club when you contravene its founding principles, which is what the Art. 7 proceedings were all about.

Brexit is all about national hysteria whipped up by fantasies of days of empire past. The reality is likely to be very different. Just as one example. The EU is quite within its rights to protect its borders and the biggest stumbling block in the Brexit negotiations is about the Irish / UK border. It also has a fundamental interest in avoiding a return of the Troubles. Which, incidentally, the US does too.

So the short message is: Those nationalist governments flouting the rule of law and ignoring fundamental human rights as laid down in the founding documents of the EU simply have no place in the EU. IMO they should follow the UK's example and leave.

The fact that this is precisely what a certain individual in a failed socialist state to the East is aiming for does not escape notice: the break-up of the EU and weakening the global rules-based order is part of Putin's playbook. Whether you are aware of it or not, this is precisely the line of argument you are parroting on his behalf.

Beware the technocratic agenda?

(A long, but worthwhile read!)

What the leadership of WEForum are thinking about our future (framed as the 4th Industrial Revolution), and about the one-time opportunity of the Covid-pandemic for imposing substantial change to the way humans live on a global scale
 (excerpts ahead from books, written by Klaus Schwab):

"The scale and breadth of the unfolding technological revolution will usher in economic, social and cultural changes of such phenomenal proportions that they are almost impossible to envisage". ...

“This gives rise to an inequality that goes beyond the societal one described earlier. This ontological inequality will separate those who adapt from those who resist—the material winners and losers in all senses of the words. The winners may even benefit from some form of radical human improvement generated by certain segments of the fourth industrial revolution (such as genetic engineering) from which the losers will be deprived. This risks creating class conflicts and other clashes unlike anything we have seen before”. ...

“The world lacks a consistent, positive and common narrative that outlines the opportunities and challenges of the fourth industrial revolution, a narrative that is essential if we are to empower a diverse set of individuals and communities and avoid a popular backlash against the fundamental changes under way”. ...

(Covid-19 is) “one of the least deadly pandemics the world has experienced over the last 2000 years” ... “the consequences of COVID-19 in terms of health and mortality will be mild compared to previous pandemics.” ...

“It does not constitute an existential threat, or a shock that will leave its imprint on the world’s population for decades”. ...

“Some leaders and decision-makers who were already at the forefront of the fight against climate change may want to take advantage of the shock inflicted by the pandemic to implement long-lasting and wider environmental changes. They will, in effect, make ‘good use’ of the pandemic by not letting the crisis go to waste”. ...

“It is our defining moment”, ... “Many things will change forever”. “A new world will emerge”. “The societal upheaval unleashed by COVID-19 will last for years, and possibly generations”. “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never”. ...

“Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to a ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes – as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes. In so doing, they will shape a ‘new normal’ radically different from the one we will be progressively leaving behind. Many of our beliefs and assumptions about what the world could or should look like will be shattered in the process”. ...

“In one form or another, social- and physical-distancing measures are likely to persist after the pandemic itself subsides, justifying the decision in many companies from different industries to accelerate automation. After a while, the enduring concerns about technological unemployment will recede as societies emphasize the need to restructure the workplace in a way that minimizes close human contact. Indeed, automation technologies are particularly well suited to a world in which human beings can’t get too close to each other or are willing to reduce their interactions. Our lingering and possibly lasting fear of being infected with a virus (COVID-19 or another) will thus speed the relentless march of automation, particularly in the fields most susceptible to automation”. ...

“The current imperative to propel, no matter what, the ‘contactless economy’ and the subsequent willingness of regulators to speed it up means that there are no holds barred”. ...

The World Economic Forum at Davos' Great Reset


There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.

The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making. The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education – are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads, managing short-term pressures against medium- and long-term uncertainties.

As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.

The Great Reset is immensely ambitious, spanning over 50 fields of knowledge and practice. It interconnects everything from economy recovery recommendations to “sustainable business models”, from restoration of the environment to the redesign of social contracts.

The beating heart of this matrix is – what else – the Strategic Intelligence Platform, encompassing, literally, everything: “sustainable development”, “global governance”, capital markets, climate change, biodiversity, human rights, gender parity, LGBTI, systemic racism, international trade and investment, the – wobbly – future of the travel and tourism industries, food, air pollution, digital identity, blockchain, 5G, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI).

In the end, only an all-in-one Plan A applies for making these systems interact seamlessly: the Great Reset – shorthand for a New World Order that has always been glowingly evoked, but never implemented.

The two main actors behind the Great Reset are Klaus Schwab, the WEF’s founder and executive chairman, and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva. Georgieva is adamant that “the digital economy is the big winner of this crisis”. She believes the Great Reset must imperatively start in 2021.

The House of Windsor and the UN are prime executive co-producers. Top sponsors include BP, Mastercard and Microsoft. It goes without saying that everyone who knows how complex geopolitical and geoeconomic decisions are taken is aware that these two main actors are just reciting a script. Call the authors “the globalist elite”. Or, in praise of Tom Wolfe, the Masters of the Universe.

Schwab, predictably, wrote the Great Reset’s mini-manifesto. Over a month later, he expanded on the absolutely key connection: the “legacy” of Covid-19.
