Atlantic Europe in 2050
Notice under article 50 will been given by the British State from withdrawal from the European Union on 29th March 2017.
Therefore this issue will dominate " British" Politics and the politics of "National Liberation" for coming years in these islands.
Therefore clarity is required on this issue from the so called nationalist parties in Scotland Ireland and Wales and also from Republican Socialists in these nations.
A clarity that will achieve the strategic objective of independence in the sovereign use of that term.
The Nationalist Parties in Scotland Ireland and Wales are united in wanting to "remain" or rejoin the European Union.
Despite the economic mercantilist ( beggar my nieghbour) policies pursued by Germany the economic engine of the European Union - despite the national humiliation of Greece and Ireland - which should deeply offend any nationalist- the so called nationalist parties are committed to a post Brexit European Union.
The supra national cosmopolitan Europe of the elites utilizes the European Central Bank for quantative easing for corporations not the people's of Europe, The European Court of Justice through a series of decisions in the early 21st century have prioritised the rights of the market over the rights of labour - this is where our so called nationalists want to take us post British State Brexit - why ?
What manner of nationalists are these people - history gives us a firm answer and it comes from James Connolly, John Maclean and Lenin they are bourgeois nationalists those nationalists that serve the capitalist elite in Edinburgh, Dublin or Cardiff while pretending to serve the people as a whole - their self deception is rampant that they think they are the people.
It has been apparent for over a 100 years that bourgeois nationalists are not the true patriots in the era of Imperialism - that lies with the working class - yes the proletariat.
Raising the working class to the leading class in the nation is the Republican Socialist task in Scotland Wales and Ireland and the completion of the national democratic revolutions aborted by the British State in the early 20th century can now finally be realised.
National and social liberation will be that lethal combination that will see's off that 18th century construct and invented tradition of Brittannia.
However before the fall of the British State - Brittannia has one last hope it is the self deception of the bourgeois nationalists of Scotland Ireland and Wales.
Because the strategic notion of sovereign independence is at odds with the supra nationalism of the European Union which did not go unnoticed by many millions throughout the British Isles in the EU Referendum in Wales,Scotland and Ireland.
The Bourgeois Nationalists by employing the tactic of Pro EU membership eats away at their very strategic aim of sovereign Independence and the British State will utilize that contradiction to maximum effect in the years ahead.
This leads us as Republican Socialists to ask the question do they really want genuine independence or has their closet British Unionism ( Love of Queen, Members in the House of Lords even some bourgeois republican elements ) been transformed into European Unionism the wet dream of Sir Oswald Moseley post 1945.
While as Republican Socialists we stand for and deeply believe in internationalism and international organisations that give mutual respect to all nations and peoples we abhor supra (above) nationalism where an undemocratic capitalist bureaucratic elite can control our finances and law.
We look forward to forming new international organisations of peoples of Wales and Ireland and Scotland in the coming years based on mutual respect and understanding of the real tasks of national and social liberation ahead.
We reject the great deception of the bourgeois nationalists in Scotland, Wales Ireland on the basis of a class analysis of their politics not just in theory but political practice.
We also reject those that fail to understand the class nature of politics and would force a non class patriots verses globalism agenda on the national movements which would open the door to the most ferocious national fascism.
We live in the era of the twilight of the British State formation and the French State formation and the Spanish State formation and the disintegration of the European Union and liberation of previously nationally oppressed nations - that process will take universal as well as highly specific forms which will better understand over time.
The fierce defense of the artificial construct the French State against the rights of other nations in France is exemplified by Marine Le Pen in her non class rhetoric of patriots verses globalism that echo the declassed Trumpen proletariat.
The process began by the British State on 29th March 2017 will reshape not just not the nations of the British Isles in Northern Europe - but hasten the re configuration of Europe over the next hundred years.
It is a call for Republican Socialist action to avoid the great national deceptions arising on the Left from social democratic parties like Sinn Fein, SNP and Plaid Cymru but also from the Fascist right particularly in France.
The need for Socialist Republicanism has never been greater in the last 100 years to shine the path to independence and socialism in the 21st Century
