Together

A successful EU

In order to grow in all teritorial member units, each of it has to be treated objectively and helped to redefine its basic characteristics. First, a team of specialists in economy, marketing, finances, hr etc. has to analize the present situation in detail. Then, the strategic objectives must be set, planned and quantified in order to ensure the achieving of our main purpose: the increase of all the important indicators used in all aspects of our life. The locals have to know and believe the strategy in order to work for it, being guided and supported the whole time by the above mentioned team. Each unit has its pluses, values, specific resources and even if these aren’t sufficient, there are always innovative alternatives, already discovered or even undiscovered yet. There’s always a set of solutions, provided motivation and grit already exist. If we truly desire that Europeans live similar satisfactory lives, no matter in which country they’re located, then more action is what needs to be done as fast as possible. Each area will require a team of inspirational and transforming leaders, both male and female (50% each gender), of all age segments, to be the locomotives of the locals. In conclusion – there’s no target to high, just undetailed ones and/or handed to unsuitable people (plus the Elvis Presley song: A little less conversation, a little more action ;).

Good comment Cristina! However we live in paradoxical time when LESS action and more conversation is necessary. Europe is currently going through the age of unprecedented economic, cultural and legal prosperity. European Union is truly moral superpower of the world, in a same time Union is maintaining keys to the World economy, and has trillions and trillions of Dollars(or euros) annual turnover. Problem is that we, as European’s dont seem to know what to do with it. Current day Europe is like a person who worked hard whole life, lost was mistreated in numerous occasion, has been victim of violence, and then, suddenly patented an invention and became celebrity billionaire overnight – without knowing what to do with wealth, pover and fame. Its time to sit down and carefully talk over where we all came from,from historic perspective, where we are going, what are objectives and what are the tools to achieve it. Inviting “professionals” to do the thinking instead of all of us would not work-using my allegory of suddenly wealthy person, hiring economists and other academics for advise is like hiring army or consultants to find ut wat t do with own wealth and power. In best case scenario they will endlessly argue with one another on your payroll , in worst case will embezzle funds. BreXit is a best example what can happen when people rely on the notion, that common sense and obvious , evident achievement will sort things out by itself, and allow celebrity demagogue to do all the talking.

Before addressing this workshop’s theme directly, I would like to offer perhaps ceremonial but nonetheless sincere apologies for any words I might mispronounce. I will do my absolute best to express my view on the concerned topic in a clear and relevant way and hope that this address will meet your expectations. The very title of our workshop raises questions: how is the world changing? And how are we supposed to define and evaluate the strength of our Union? Do we refer to our military strength in a world of constant crisis and increasing tensions? Or are we rather referring to our strength in a more general way, therefore including social and cultural notions, as well as economic and structural factors? Recent events in our contemporary history, such as the rise of international institutions and the fall of the USSR, led us to think that our socio-political model, what we often refer to as liberal democracy, would in the future go unopposed and thus, that we had entered the era of post-strength: we had nothing to conquer, nothing to defend. But we were partly mistaken and those certitudes we had, those certitudes we carefully built and looked after, now represent the first obstacle that we, as progressives, need to overcome. To some of us progressives, strength is a dirty word, so deeply linked to centuries of barbarity, violence and martial crimes that we felt as if turning our back on this very notion would be enough to gain the moral high ground. Yet, other thinkers from our ranks thought differently and dared express a paradoxical evidence of theirs: the less we’re willing to use our strength, to more we should improve it. Does the Union need to improve its strength from a quantitative point of view? Apart from NATO’ arbitrary goal of dedicating 3% of one nation’s GDP to its military budget, one can hardly accurately define the limit below which strength begins shrinking. But there definitely are things to improve from a qualitative point of view, especially in term of industrial cooperation, strategic thinking, and interoperability of our forces. And yet, there’s still one more thing that I ought to say to this assemble: our Union IS strong. And it needs to use its strength. Not to invade countries, not to conquer lands, not to submit people, but to defend its own interests. We now have to deal with a US president turning into a warmonger-in-chief; we now have to deal with countries considered “western” leaving international institutions and disregarding international agreements without having to suffer any kind of diplomatic or political retribution. More than anything else, those realities are to be met with a European response: The Union needs not only to be strong, but to act in a strong, independent way as well. If not, History will severely judge us: we will enter history books as “the power who refused to be powerful” and peoples will only remember this: we could have changed the world – but we refused to.
