THE EU AND THE RULE OF LAW

2016-09-12

It is a bitter irony to see  European Commission and Parliament join in criticizing the Polish Government at the time the rule of law is in serious disrepair in the European Union herself. As the many crises of the EU  tell us, the European Union as such is in a serious rule of law crisis, built up over the years ever since the European Community was transformed into an undemocratic European Union and enlargement was pushed with no consideration for the consequences. Let our Eurocrats re-read the Schuman Declaration of 1950, to remember what he proposed and what he saw as the "soul of Europe". Rather than recovering its soul, Eurocrats and member governments have subjected Europe's soul to a most destructive ideology of secularism. They have failed to provide the Euro with the necessary federal governing structure. They have degraded pre-federal supranational decision-making to an unmanageable kind of summit intergovernmentalism. Instead of providing their electorats with a constructive vision of a united Europe, they present them with endless and inconclusive squabbling in expensive summit meetings between 27/28 primadonna's. No wonder populism is on the rise everywhere and Schuman is no longer understood, not even in catholic Poland. Shame to our political establisments that they no longer are inspired by Schuman, Solidarnosc and Europe's Christian heritage.
