Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

European birthday: thank you, America

Europe celebrates its 50th birthday. Bureaucrats and nostalgics all over the 27 member states congratulate each another for this apparent achievement of peace, welfare and stability. However, they seems to ignore to whom they really owe this: To the United States. The real peace-makers have always been sitting in Washington, not in Brussels, Paris or Berlin. It is only because of the American security garanties during the cold war that the European exeperminent could be carried out in what can be considered a statist biotope. It is only thank to this that the Europeans could afford to spend their funds for social "welfare" and other redistributive systems without caring about traditional political necessities. That is also the reason why this project is going to fail: Since the days of the six founders, Europe has become way too big and uncontrollable. Furthermore, the US are not wiling any more to stick out there necks for the Europeans now that the Cold war is over and that the European have proven useless military allies (Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq). The Europeans have forgotten that their club has been created only to preserve a balance of power ensuring "peace". It could never become a genuine political project of unification. The actual European climate hysteria has to be seen as nothing more than a desperate attempt to stay active in a "good" field of politics - while the US (and the UK) are still caring for the dirty work all around the globe. The Europeans are trying to preserve some sort of pure European perspective made out of mere symbolics - and they are inevitably going to fail. Welcome back to reality, Europe.

UPDATE (27.03.2007, 21;00): I put a link to this post on the blog of the European Commissioner for Institutional Relations and Communications Strategy, Margot Wallström. I promptly received an answer from some communist neurotic. Funny, how i get called all sorts of names:
Compleanno dell'Europa, grazie E u r o p a!

Ho letto il tuo sito

Bel sito maschilista, reazionario, parafascista mackarthista e imperialista; bravo!

Prima di definirti liberale, studiati per benino John Stuart Mill, che ti farbbe tanto tanto bene!
In particolare ti suggerisco caldamente di studiarti "The subjection of women"!

Ti faccio anche notare che il blog di Margot Wallstrom è proprietà dell'Unione Europea e dei suoi cittadini. Dal momento che non mi risulta che la Svizzera (tu sei svizzero, vero? Si capisce dal tuo sito...) faccia parte dell'Unione Europea, e dal momento che ami tanto l'Esercito degli Stati Uniti, le ipotesi di guerra all'Iran, il diritto dei cittadini di possedere armi, le donne rinchiuse in casa a fare la calzetta, perché non vai sui siti dell'estrema destra americana, anziché entrare a "casa nostra" (un sito dell'Unione Europea, di cui tu NON sei cittadino...) a propagandare la tua idologia di estrema destra?
Nei siti del ku kux klan verrai senzaltro accolto con grande gioia!
