EUROPEANS: UNITE!

2017-01-31

The policies of anger and wrath from Washington D.C. are bound to be a direct and existential challenge to the European Union. I attach a most interesting article in "Social Europe" from form Joschka Fisher. What is at stake is not only American leadership or protection, but the very foundation of post-war Western cooperation and European Unification. Populism, as we call it today, means politics of anger and wrath. It is much more widespread and popular than we are willing to recognize. It has now become official policy in Washington D.C., in London with hard Brexit, in Hungary and in Poland. European unification can survive only when we are prepared to revive and restore the original inspiration of Reconciliation-Solidarity-and-Unity.

Footprints of the 20th Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?
