No, that’s not a typo, it really does say 2100, ninety years from now. It hardly bears thinking about what sort of world we’ll be living in – well, our children and grand-children at least – if the following is current thinking within the EU. The prayer for today has to be ‘please let these f/tards implode – and make it soon’.
I couldn’t find much online about Iulian Oneasca, the author of the document, beyond the fact that he once worked at the Institute for World Economics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Bucharest and now works at the European Institute for Romania (possibly just a name change, a takeover of the Institute). He’s a good European is Iulian. He offers his critique and advice to the European Commission on their strategies; he points out “the joys and delights” and he points out the pitfalls.
Pitfalls such as “empowering people.” He likens it to a coin with two faces: “the ugly one has been exposed by the Swiss […] banning the construction of new minarets across Switzerland, towards the end of 2009”.
A new thinking and a fresh approach are required. Enhanced information and empowerment of the populations could generate positive emulations, provided that detrimental cultural heritage is filtered.
He goes on:
[The] EU needs a life-time horizon to reinvent itself, reshape humans and heal societal and institutional structures in which they operate.[…]. The passage from domination and exercise of force to global governance, the force of arguments and principles, is smooth and deliberate. This is the genuine Avatar2, the virtual projection that we are seeking for. It promotes a comprehensive approach based on the following three pillars:
- Humans and Humanity, addressing Economy, Society and Well being;
- Environment, aiming to Clean environment and Energy resources;
- Interactions, Terrestrial or Cosmic.
Iulian is nothing if not ambitious, with a grand vision for future humanity:
There are sufficient reasons to consider social issues as powerful shaping forces, which Europe should not ignore:
a. Exclusion processes, which have developed over generations through various channels, such as cultural heritage, ethnicity or religious bigotry, are strengthened by economic deprivations.
b. The human’s cultural heritage is impregnated with germs of violence, intolerance and discrimination. […] Adding to the exclusion, these threats may be accompanied and reinforced by resurgent nationalism and right-wing extremism that will focus on foreigners and immigrants.
Reinventing the human being may be the proper solution. It requires thorough and early interventions that may spread over a life time. EU should enhance forming its citizens and their civic spirit.
I told you he was a good European didn’t I? And this is an example of the type of person they take their advice from. Where the heck did we go wrong?
I’ll answer that for you – we went wrong by trusting our politicians: those members of society, our friends and neighbours, who said, ‘vote for me and I will represent you in a democracy’. Well, they didn’t, they haven’t and they aren’t. We’re guinea pigs, fodder, pieces on a chess board, and they’re playing with us, carrying out their little experiments. Their last experiment, with the economy and monetary system, has gone badly wrong but I doubt they care; it’s just an exercise – they’re on manoeuvres.
UPDATE: Do me a favour and someone, please, put me out of my misery:
