Tomorrow Britain will hold a referendum on whether to leave the European Union, a process often referred to as “Brexit.” Next Friday we will have another European Union – whatever the decision is. As an European Citizen I am concerned about the state of decomposition of the great ideas about a single market and a political union. The ‘Brexit-Vote’ is an important sign and a demand note, to initiate a politic and economic change in the European Union.
We need a radical reform of all structures and fundamenals of the European Union, with new ideas, new dialogue and new negotiations – in which all arguments are respected and thorougly audited.
John Cage said once „I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.“
Also we should be frightened about „old politics“ today. The economic crisis as a result of old politics is frightening. Even the situation of the planet is frightening! Over and above the 4th technical revolution will bring new and unknown challenges.
It´s a situation of crisis and of change. It´s a challenge. It´s a strenuous effort. But it is „our European Job“ – and an auspicious „European Project“. It´s also a human and economic necessity!
I would like to invite You: Let´s make Europe great as not seen yet!
