In the middle of the 19th century, in the middle of Europe, the elites of what became multicultural Switzerland, decided not to participate in any wars. One of the questions this society asked: “How to be secure without wars?”
In the middle of the 20th century, the elites of what became EU decided not to fight each other – yet to go to any wars they wish to. One of the questions the EU did not ask yet: “How to be secure without wars?”
Another question asked by those people, in the middle of the 19th century, in the middle of Europe: “How to participate all in shaping all things common together?”
I think these two questions should be asked by today’s elites of Europe. Yet who are the elites of today? All the people? Is Europe already that far?
