Start the proses of democratising the EU

To start the proses of democratising and federalising the EU is the far most important challenge for the EU in 2015. It's the foundation for all other importent issues that face Europeans today and tomorrow.

Campaign and a petition against poverty and discrimination

We need to stop pointing the finger at the poor and the discriminated because they are doing what they can to improve their situation. 

Today I will take a civic, pan-European initiative for a campaign and a petition against poverty and discrimination against Roma and other vulnerable groups and thereby put pressure on politicians and policymakers in Europe to act for decent conditions for all EU citizens.

The campaign and petition will be conducted on social media and through petitions throughout the EU.

Make your voice heard for those who lack capacity to make themselves heard.

We are building our future out of our past

Our future is more important than our past but it requires that we know our past if we are to build a good future.

Christmas time

For me Christmas is a time for reflection and gratitude.
Christmas reminds us of those who aren't with us anymore and all the people who for various reasons aren't privileged to celebrate the holidays in peace together with friends and loved ones.
Christmas is a time to reflect on our world and on our place in it.
Christmas invites us to open up our minds and our hearts to strangers and to the needy.

Merry Christmas everyone!

EPP and Fidez

How does this interest a liberal like my self? 

It's simple, the EPP have a family member called fidez, the governing party    in Hungary. 
The party and its president Victor Orban are strongly criticised by the EU becous of their anti-democratic reforms and Orbans flirtation with Russia and China. 

What mostly amasses me is how quiet the rest of the EPP family are about Orbans politics and goals. It makes me question the EPP and the hole families political and democratic agenda. 

If this situation don't harm the EPP as a hole I wonder what could. 

21 century

From a democratic point of view the 21 century haven't served the world particularly well.

Let's turn the tide together!

The eurosceptic

For me, the definition of the typical eurosceptic, is a person who oppose any form of political, social and economic integration between European “nation-states” A person thats not willing to see any pragmatic, democratic or economical benefits from integration. The typical eurosceptic is often found in nationalistic movements and in very romantically, conservative groups where yesterday is more important then tomorrow and institutions are more important then people. Those movements, groups and individuals are blinded by an idea of how things are, instead of how things really are. Often delusionalised that they are above everything that is surrounding their isolated perception on how things are or should be and that there is a threat in everything that is new, different or partly in opposition to their worldview.

As you see, I don’t mention criticism towards EU systematics, democracy or politics in my definition at all. Why? To be critical, you must be constructive in your criticism and you must also offer constructive solutions or alternatives to what you are critical about, eurosceptics don’t do that at all, according to my definition above.

If you want change and reforms to better things of state, you must search beyond scepticism.. Then there’s the rest, fans of status qou.

A simple word of advice

Europe, educate yourself!

Racists, homofobics and bigots

I don't hate racists, homofobics or bigots, I hate racism, homofobia and bigotry.
