Not many people have heard of the Kalergi pan-European plan for Europe. In the 1920s Freemason (in 1922 Kalergi became a member of the Masonic lodge Humanitas) Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi wrote a book entitled Praktischer Idealismus (practical idealism) which set forth his views on how he believed thee abolition of the right to self-determination and liquidation of European countries should be carried out with the formation of the European Union.
After the publication of the book, Kalergi received help from the baron millionaire Louis Nathaniel de Rothschild who linked him to one of his friends Max Warburg. Warburg financed Kalergi to help form his European movement. Kalergi urged not only the destruction of European states, but also the deliberate genocide of indigenous peoples through forced mass migration to create a homogenous mass.
The pan-European plan of Kalergi envisaged the use of violent and disproportionate mass immigration, especially from non-European countries, in order to bring about a common European state dictatorship and the destruction of the indigenous white population – the nationalities of Europe.

I want the whole of Europe to have one currency; it will make trading much easier. Napoleon Bonaparte
Europe is a mole-hill. Everything wears out. My glory is already past. And this tiny Europe does not offer enough of it. We must go to the East – all great glory has always been gained there. Napoleon Bonaparte

Europe is so well gardened that it resembles a work of art, a scientific theory, a neat metaphysical system. Man has re-created Europe in his own image. Aldous Huxley

The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime. Edward Grey
The Europeans are all deeply tainted with prejudices, both ecclesiastical and temporal, which they can never get rid of. They are all infected with episcopal and Presbyterian creeds, and confessions of faith. They all believe that great Principle which has produced this boundless universe, Newton’s universe and Herschell’s universe, came down to this little ball, to be spit upon by Jews. And until this awful blasphemy is got rid of, there never will be any liberal science in the world. John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson 22 January 1825
Europe is not really even a geographic entity; it is separated from Asia only at one point, the Bosphorus, by a small stretch of water. North of that there is continuity over the Russians steppes, a complete terrestrial flow. I suggest that is also true of culture, and indeed of social organization. Indeed Europe has never been purely isolated, purely Christian. Instead of Christian Europe, one has to see the continent as penetrated by the three world religions that originated in the Near East and which indeed had a common mythology or sacred text; in order of arrival these were Judaism, Christianity and Islam ... All have equal entitlements to be present, and in this general (‘objective’) sense none can be considered only as the Other; they are part of Europe, part of our heritage. Jack Goody, Islam in Europe

How Isis and al-Qaeda brought terror to Europe … a trail of evidence across France, Belgium and Spain … and why Europe remains so vulnerable. Frontline: Terror in Europe, PBS 2016
In 2012 the war in Syria dramatically changed the European security landscape. It spawned a new jihadist movement – Isis – which set out to be even more brutal than al-Qaeda. In 2014 the group formally split from al-Qaeda and declared a Caliphate, or Islamic state. ibid.
Hundreds more fighters were returning to Europe without specific terrorist missions and hundreds of Europeans had been radicalised at home without visiting Syria. Any one of them could have posed a threat. ibid.
The systemic problems remain and Europe is as vulnerable as ever. ibid.
Centuries ago Europe was a battleground fought over by kings and queens. For hundreds of years power-hungry families fought for the right to rule. And Europe transformed. These rivalries shifted borders, destroyed cities and brought the population to its knees. The fate of millions depended on their feuds and passions, their obsessions and betrayals. Dan Jones, Britain’s War of Thrones: The Hundred Years War I, History 2018
For 300 years the Capetian dynasty reigns in France, one of the most powerful kingdoms in Europe. ibid.
