The goals have been stated . The power elite want Europe under the control of Brussels. It is ok for government to debate and fret over things such as gay marriage and other pop culture topics but the people must not be allowed to be self-governing on things such as their financial future or who will be invaded in their name. So we use crisis government and media propaganda to induce large volumes of fear in order to provide cover for the implementation of the game plan. It is that simple. Why enter into a messy free fall of the economy when propaganda is so much easier and cheaper.
