EUROPE AT THE CROSSROADS


After decades of a ruthless and deeply unsocial neo-liberalism on the back of the normal people making only the already rich still more richer, another malicious ghost is creeping again over the boulevards of Europe. It is the chauvinist spirit of simplified truths spread by self-proclaimed saviors of occident as a whole.

Postmodern demons emerging from the collective subconscious

The nationalist ideologies of 19th and 20th century are now on the verge to a powerful revival in many countries and as well in European parliament after the coming 23-26 May elections. The globalization of this retrogressive zeitgeist has opened new battlefields covered by a gloomy twilight of prefascist idols. Subsequently news of unilateral steps and national solo-efforts by individual states of the European Union now hunt us regularly like greedy and creepy ghosts of a dark age and past times.

The labyrinth of ego-trips

The radical nationalists in the diverse countries of Europe now want to put just back the clock finally while having already started a postmodern crucial witchhunt. Like unscrupulous pupils in magic they have lighted blazing totalitarian fires everywhere which need to be urgently extinguished again.

After the bloody fascism in the first half of 20th century we have enjoyed the longest period of peace in Europe without war and opened national borders of former enemies. This represents a real big progress and step in history which needs to be safeguarded and maintained for our common future.

      1. Thanks, Ulli. I hope they do too. I can imagine the right-wingers will also be there to drown out the marchers. But I hope to see a good show of people looking to stop the tide of hatred and nationalism.

      2. Police will take care that right-winged people do not disturb, at least here in Germany then separating the people in order to avoid clashes. Here in Berlin I do not expect any activities from the right political side.

    1. Thank you so much, Robert. This is more a description of a phenomen in words and pictures. So not a real analysis this would have been much longer. I did not write about the strange wildboar-protectionfence at the German-Danish border, an odd example of populist crazyness which is also completely useless. New walls and borders are constructed in reality and in the minds of people, so the freedom is in real danger not only in the USA.

      1. Words and pictures can be as effective as in-depth analysis, and these certainly are. I keep hearing older folks like myself saying that they are glad they won’t be alive when our civilization finally collapses. It’s so sad.

    1. Indeed, this is unfortunately a disturbing era of history. But I am also totally convinced that the national states in Europe of the 18th, 19th and 20th century will have no future or fair chance in a world of dangerous, megalomaniac leaders in Washington, Moscow and also Beijing. Thanks for passing by.
