Apart from the geografically determined
terminology I call Europe into question.
What is Europe, does it really exist and if,
which will the prospects be?
Or is Europe just billowing like an idealistic
dream on the one hand and like an unwelcome despotic and exploitative Goddess
of the cheating of liberty on the other hand?
Who bravely dares when and why to define a
community of values?
After this European world-history?
The world is hurt by a crushing occidental
adventurism that has been performed especially in the name of a religious
mission which represents a mentality of conquest and subjection that is
encouriging modern but outdated madmen to follow suit.
Culture is put in the shade, if one might speak
of culture at all under those disgraceful aspects.
European powers mauled each other, destroyed
other peoples and landscapes, made people slaves by an unscrupulousness that
is, at present, escalating worldwide as method of ruling and hegemony.
European keys to success are converted naturally
into any cultural traditions whereas they address the satisfaction of greed and
the stabilisation of violence and
systems of command.
European superiority arose in particular from
the so-called age of rationalism which meant remarkable relaxation of religious
rigidity, caused by brave intelligences that brought science and technology
also in the daily life. But just this material use of the spiritual relaxation
enabled the European rulers to more and more destructive military campaigns.
They abused systematically the progress which they never could establish by
themselves as they were bound to their dogmatic mental limitations.
Being rather upset about the disastrous impacts
of the two worldwars several enlightened people developed the idea of a unified
and peaceful Europe, but did they have success in really convincing the
politicians and the population? Is Europe on a way of growing humanization or
do we only watch a new orientation of old power structures, a further deviding
between technological progress and traditional spiritual pedantic growth?
First of all there has been an exceptional long
and relatively peaceful coexistence of the European states after the last
worldwar. Except some compareably local armed engagements there has been
silence because of the primary threat by the splitting into East and West with
absolute destructive potentials on both sides. After the dissolution of the
Eastern block the European Union grew stronger not only by new members but,
above all, as the leading economic power on the continent.
The fascinating European idea became impressive
reality by the freedom of travelling and movement of persons and goods and by
commonplace collaborations that take place meanwhile as routine operations. War
between Eu members seems to be absolutely impossible, one might think who isn’t
watching so directly.
Europe’s philosophy, however, is marked by an
unbearable lethargy of thought which should be named as what it actually is:
unprincipled expediency and inability.
Opinion-making in the media and their best
networks is accepted as a matter of course, media working frankly against
freedom of the press, generating bogeymen, creating desinformation and
concealing essential processes and events.
The European Union is neither a confederation
nor a state union of equal members but is following the dictatorship of the
capital which is concentrated in a few member states. Without a common
constitution the EU is implementing rediculous dicisions of the European
Commission like the meanwhile revised standard of the curvature of cucumbers or
the valid regulation on light bulbs. A giant parliament is serving as a
pseudo-democratic administrative bureaucracy designing and approving laws in
favour of banks and the lobbies of oil companies and arms producers.
Traditional exploitation of the Third or Second
World is part of the secret but intended procedure camouflaged by inandequate
development aid or poor commercial privileges. Weapons and war are profitable
business and set the course even in company
of undemocratic ruling systems, integration of rotten religious world views
and the keeping on “Christian Values” that have approved as murderous state
doctrines since 2000 years support with an antiquated raison of the society
which lags more and more desperately behind technological progress.
Democracy and transparency are stopped
ideologically by a directed religion of climate-fear-production and by a
particularly German so-called “Energiewende” an absurd turnaround in energy
policy. Both startegies are targeting of fat-cat payouts of every single
citizen – a senseless doing of business that doesn’t appreciate and protect
nature but burdens it.
Concerning rigour and unscrupulousness in
enforcing capitalistic profit and growth the USA is at first position
worldwide. Second is the EU which delivers the explanation for her success that
is regarded by people especially in poorer countries with fictious
Of course, life will be quite comfortable in the
USA or in the EU, if one has an income to dispose of, and if the person is an
opportinistic or naïve fellow traveller and dogooder. If a person isn’t in harmony with the “standard”, the
exclusion will vary according to the divergence of the critical thinking by
covered conceiling up to public condemnation and denunciation or even criminal
By no means the European Union is indicating an
open-minded (cosmopolitan) society but caused the establishing of numerous
smaller states just in younger history, she brings nationalistic and separatist
small-mindednesses into the arena and creates home-made Europhobia. The reason
is in fundamental diversities concerning economic and currency affairs as well
as social and foreign policy.
Some member states belong to NATO, others stay
officially neutral – a mixture that culminates in Germany – which let us not
forget – as there has been no peace treaty since 1945, as there is no
constitution approved by the people and as there is still the enemy state
clause of the UN Charta.
The unjustified war against Iraque was fought by
the USA essentially from military bases in Germany where the occupators also
store American nuclear weapons. (Of course, the occupation will not be called
that officially towards the USA because of Germany’s vassalage.)
The enevitable question arises as to wether
there is a democratic legitimation of the EU: Can the existence of this
alliance of states be justified by a dictation of the capital and by the
arbitrariness of administration in Brussels?
As a grandiose idea of humanity Europe, at
present, is suffering from an enormous treason – and there are nowhere brave
opinion leaders and philosophers bringing this to an end.
Secret services, large companies, economic
strategists and war ideologists are preventing the boldest approaches on human
dignity and freedom.
Some parts of Europe are performing in
complacent satisfation, growth oriented and saturated. At the same time it is
ignored how Africa, Latin America, large parts of Asia and even own EU members
are left behind.
Up to now Europe is not able literally to jump
over her antiquated shadows and to take up really humane changes such as, for
example, they are drafted up in the Cosmonomic Manifesto.
Instead of this a secret and so-called Transatlantic
Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is negotiated with the USA.
Undemocratic the methods and undemocratic the substance!
We know similar contemptuous proceedings at the
European parliament elections appear as farces against such backgrounds, as higher national dulling and camouflage of an actual decline in democracy.
