Adenauer’s opinions on Europe were based on the idea that European unity was essential for lasting peace and stability.
Please, read again the abovementioned lists which have in common an impressive list of names.
There are lists of previous and current names of heads of the European Union institutions, previous and current names of heads of states and government of the European Union Member States.
However, there is a big difference between these two lists: the first one is just a list with names and the second is a list with personalities of the European Union concept.
Only the names mentioned in the second list will endure forever in the consciousness of the people of the united Europe.
The European citizen has to know that Europe’ biggest issue is that it has no true and reliable leaders, both at the European Union and country level.
Germany’s power is polarizing Europe and all these so-called EU heads have been hidding and ruling Europe in the shadow of Chancellor of Germany for years.
At the moment, the European Union is passing through the most important and the biggest crisis since World War II: economic crisis, Greek crisis, Putin’s rise, migration crisis, phenomenon such as Grexit, Brexit and the phenomenon of insecurity and instability at the level of the European citizen.
Dear heads of European Union institutions and Members States, you are not in those positions for your own or your groups’ interests, you are not here to become rich; because you are more than very well paid.
Weak up and start working for the interest of the European Union citizen!
As usually, I would like to finish my article recalling about the fall of Constantinople.
The great Emperor Napoleon I during the Hundred Days in his speech to the Houses in June, 1815, said, “Help me save our country . . . . Let us not follow the example of the Byzantine Empire [n’imitons pas l’ example du Bas-Empire], which, being pressed from all sides by the barbarians, became the laughing – stock of posterity because it was preoccupied with petty quarrels while the battering-ram was breaking through the city gates.”
