Get the message out

How do we get the message of federalism, democracy and diversity out to the people of Europe? 

My answer to that question is to go where we haven't gone before. 

Let's meet the sceptics and the nationalists on their grounds. Talk to them, write articles and stand up for the ideas of a better EUrope.

The UK election and Nigel Farage

The Britts goes to the polls on May 7. This is a election that may drastically affect Britain's future. The biggest question is whether the election will lead to a referendum regarding Britain's exit from the EU. A exit that most likely would mean a breakup of the UK.

But I'm going to focus on. probably the best known and most exposed politician in the UK, Nigel Farage. The founder and leader of UKIP, United Kingdom independens party.

UKIP is a party that was built around the requirement for Britain to leave the EU. With a populisic rhetoric and buffoon-like approach in debates by party leader Farage, the party has, as so many other European sister parties succeeded in the art to be seen and heard in the media, to a much greater extent than the party's electoral support claims. This applies throughout Europe. 
Few EU parliamentarians can historically be compared with how Farage has managed to captivate the media and use the media to get his policies and his person exposed to the voters. 

Before and during the 2014 election campaign to the European Parliament the party developed into a clear xenophobic party and the so-called EU migrants tops the list of the party's rhetorical vulnerable groups.

UKIP has a libertarian view on economic policy, which distinguishes them from many other nationalist parties in Europe. But that's where the party's libertarianism ends. UKIP is an ultra-nationalist party with dreams of the old empire. The party's Nationalism overshadows all sense of reality and pragmatism in their policy's. 

In an attempt to counter the UKIP, the conservative Tories, like so many other established parties in Europe embraced parts of the UKIP's populism and rhetoric. The result seems to be the same in Britain as it was in Denmark, UKIP becomes strengthened, just like the Danish People's Party was strengthened in Denmark.

The outcome of the 2015 election is more uncertain than it has ever been in the UK. Unholy coalitions can be enforced and the future of the kingdom and its place in Europe and in the world is highly uncertain.

Human Rights

If you believe in human rights, you must stand up for human rights for everyone, everywhere.

Human rights, just as democracy can't be partial or conditional. Because if it is there is no human rights and no democracy.

EU reforms

We can't start working on true EU reforms until we get past the pro-anti EU bullshit. 
Let's face the fact that we all are Europeans and that our future depends on each other. 

The world is changing and Europe must stand strong and united in this process. The values of democracy and human rights can't be taken for granted especially if we don't take united measures at the European level. 

If we don't act now it won't be long until we regret our lack of action.

United Europe

I'm convinced that only a united and a federal EUrope can be a souverign Europe in the globalised world. 

I'm convinced that only a united and a federal Europe with a constitutional foundation can guarantee democracy and human rights for all Europeans. 

I'm convinced that Europe must continue on its path towards democratic unification that started after world war 2.

Europe has come to far to let the ship go under

Europe has come to far in its democratic, social and economic development for us to let national interests steer the handling of the current crisis and Europe's future development. 

The Council has in recent years demonstrated its intolerable slowness and inability to handle, for Europe crucial issues. This includes everything from the financial crisis to foreign policy.  

It's time that the Council hand over their power to the elected parliament.
The Council should be replaced by directly elected national representatives and thus become a second chamber to Parliament. 

Europe belongs to all Europeans and we can't let Europe be a playground for national politicians.

Government by the people

Europe don't need British, German or Greek leadership, EU needs a government by the people for the people.

Islamophobia play's a big part in the radicalisation and recruitment of young Muslims in Europe.

Islamophobia play's a big part in the radicalisation and recruitment of young Muslims in Europe.

Nothing feeds extremism and fundamentalism more then other extremists and fundamentalists. This applies both in politics and in religion. Without one the other one choaks. Simple logic!

The open, welcoming and democratic society is the best weapon against all forms of fundamentalism and against terror and threats in its name. Everything else is giving the victory away to fundamentalist and extremist.

Europe must show courage and stand by its democratic and inclusive values ​​and refuse to yield to the threat these groups and individuals represent.
