On December 25th, a journalist from an Italian financial radio described the “Europe’s debt as a huge step forward for European integration (…) “
Today’s Debt is tomorrow’s Tax, a cumulative tax that will not substitute national taxes. Acquiring sovereignty through debt seems like a ‘nightmare’!
More than ever before, this unbelievable naivety is probably what prompts me, today, to submit this manifesto for Europe, before it is too late, and that these political disrespects and callowness become the instruments -with irreversible effects- of populism of all kinds, both of the right and the left.
Europe has not yet left its old reflexes, its old analyses, its outlook, nor the twentieth century. The Goût European Review (Manifesto) spells out the main directives of an assertive XXIst century Europe competent in confronting a world whose current fundamental vocation is to be multipolar.
The thirteen columns of a XXIst century Sovereign Europe
1. Euro: our currency must be a strong contender in international transactions and replace the dollar in our zones of actions.
2. Tax must indeed be European, but with a simpler and uniform national tax system of communicating vessels that sustain the advancement of Europe.
3. European borders must be effectively managed and immigration made consistent with economic, cultural and social realities
4. Education must be as unified as possible and based on exchanges. Education will put Europe at the heart of its reflections. Education will be a priority in everything that promotes integration while respecting European differences and complementarities.
5. Made in EU must replace all « national » made but can indicate its original place of production.
6. Economic and Strategic Independence: a list of strategic sectors (e.g. internet, cyber security, defence, telecom, health…) must be drawn up and industrial and economic independence will have to be guaranteed.
7. Ecology, declared fundamental, must condition all socio-economic orientations.
8. Defence policy must be clearly affirmed, unified and centralised, as will the Industry that serves it.
9. Foreign policy must be defined by European leadership and must uphold its autonomy in a multipolar world, on the basis of renewed alliances, adapted to the present and future defiances and challenges.
10. Competition and its accompanying rules must adapt to international challenges, viewed from a Europe versus the rest of the world perspective. Reciprocity is key so that our institutions and companies cannot be conditioned by third parties.
11. Social, declared fundamental, must be able to condition Europe’s political, economic and cultural orientations but must be based on a set of Responsible rules for harmonisation.
12. Roots and Cultures, the roots of Europe – an evolutionary Pagan Judeo Christianism – must contribute to a reflection on living, building it, making exist Europe together. Cultures must be valued, rich in their differences and complementarities; they must constitute a model of integration.
13. Costs and Management are also declared fundamental: there is a need to establish full trust between European citizens and their institutions. Systems of control are to be put in place immediately.
Long Live Europe!
