Liberty, health, safety,

Ways of understanding


Finding a balance between freedom and security is an old story. Totalitarian and free countries do not have a common vision on this, except of course in cases of extreme necessity, such as major natural or other disasters, or even NBC.

Some nations, whose calculating leaders have lost faith, and perhaps the compass or even the professionalism that came out of the Cold War, are confining themselves.

There is, however, progress on the part of some heads of state, who are listening and changing their way of thinking, especially when full powers are put in place? However, these powers seem to me to be inadequate to the present health and health situation. Indeed, this is not a war, the subject matter is disproportionate, but a health situation that needs to be addressed in the societal, scientific, medical, laboratory and pharmaceutical fields.

As I pointed out privately at the outset of this case, the central questions are not being answered; Mrs Condoleezza Rice asked the right questions during the video conference at the Hoover Institute on 14 April 2020. Obviously we have seen some bounce back from this intervention.

This raises the question of diagnosis and evaluation.   

This being the case, there is no need to provoke other states like the Chinese in this matter, but to solve the problems in international cooperation.

 Europe has been slow to react, particularly because of the change of Commission last July, and the arrival of many young people inexperienced in European affairs, both in the European Council and the European Parliament. The renewal of the European political generation is a fact that must be taken into account.  

Although the 2019-2024 term of office is experiencing teething troubles, all the players in the European institutions now have a duty to acquire and build on their experience in order to progress.  This also involves a phase of humility in relation to the ambitions of a few. The problems are well known. First of all, I would recommend continuing the work of the Junker Commission and then progressing step by step towards selected and voted developments agreed by the Member States and the citizens.  

We will be able to rely on the experienced players in our institutions, both European civil servants, MEPs and Member States, to meet these challenges.

Finally, after a few months of virtual absence, some progress has been made in tackling the European public health problem: such as the establishment of common resources at different levels to solve the problem, taking into account the disparities between health systems and their approaches in the European states.  

This is a path that helps European progress, in cooperation with the MS that are doing their research, while extending at international level the effort needed to resolve this health crisis. Work together!


There is no need for any autocratic process or authoritarian power drift, whose objectives would not be very clear and would take us back to an earlier period around the 19th century.

Our institutions, nations and citizens are following the curve of progress in all fields, and the scales of value appreciation have evolved positively over the decades, the use of psychological or other techniques to return to the painful past we know is a professional fault on the part of those who use such methods. Let us remain vigilant in the face of these egocentric deviations.

I recall that Jesus Christ liberates and heals; it is also a dimension!  Keep faith and hope!

Freiheit, Gesundheit, Sicherheit,

Wege des Verstehens

Ein Gleichgewicht zwischen Freiheit und Sicherheit zu finden, ist eine alte Geschichte. Totalitäre und freie Länder haben diesbezüglich keine gemeinsame Vision, außer natürlich in Fällen äußerster Notwendigkeit, wie bei großen Natur- oder anderen Katastrophen oder sogar bei ABC-Katastrophen.

Einige Nationen, deren berechnende Führer den Glauben und vielleicht auch den Kompass oder sogar die Professionalität, die aus dem Kalten Krieg hervorgegangen sind, verloren haben, schränken sich ein.

Es gibt jedoch Fortschritte seitens einiger Staatsoberhäupter, die zuhören und ihre Denkweise ändern, vor allem, wenn volle Befugnisse eingeführt werden. Diese Befugnisse scheinen mir jedoch im Hinblick auf die gegenwärtige gesundheitliche und gesundheitliche Situation unzureichend zu sein. In der Tat handelt es sich hier nicht um einen Krieg, die Thematik ist unverhältnismäßig, sondern um eine Gesundheitssituation, die in den Bereichen Gesellschaft, Wissenschaft, Medizin, Labor und Pharmazie angegangen werden muss.

Wie ich zu Beginn dieses Falles privat darauf hingewiesen habe, dass die zentralen Fragen nicht beantwortet werden, hat Frau Condoleezza Rice während der Videokonferenz im Hoover-Institut am 14. April 2020 die richtigen Fragen gestellt. Offensichtlich haben wir gesehen, dass sich einige von dieser Intervention erholt haben..

Unter diesen Umständen ist es sinnlos, andere Staaten wie die Chinesen in dieser Angelegenheit zu provozieren, sondern die Probleme in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit zu lösen.

 Europa hat nur langsam reagiert, vor allem wegen des Wechsels der Kommission im vergangenen Juli 2019, und der Ankunft vieler junger Menschen, die in europäischen Angelegenheiten unerfahren sind, sowohl im Europäischen Rat als auch im Europäischen Parlament. Die Erneuerung der europäischen politischen Generation ist eine Tatsache, der man Rechnung tragen muss.  

Obwohl die Amtszeit 2019-2024 Kinderkrankheiten aufweist, haben alle Akteure in den europäischen Institutionen nun die Pflicht, ihre Erfahrungen zu sammeln und auszubauen, um voranzukommen.  Dazu gehört auch eine Phase der Demut gegenüber den Ambitionen einiger weniger. Die Probleme sind bekannt. Zunächst einmal würde ich empfehlen, die Arbeit der Junker-Kommission fortzusetzen und dann Schritt für Schritt auf ausgewählte und abgestimmte Entwicklungen zuzugehen, auf die sich die Mitgliedstaaten und die Bürgerinnen und Bürger geeinigt haben.  Wir werden uns bei der Bewältigung dieser Herausforderungen auf die erfahrenen Akteure in unseren Institutionen verlassen können, sowohl auf die europäischen Beamten, die Abgeordneten des Europäischen Parlaments als auch die Mitgliedstaaten.   

Schließlich sind nach einigen Monaten virtueller Abwesenheit einige Fortschritte bei der Bewältigung des Problems der öffentlichen Gesundheit in Europa erzielt worden: So wurden auf verschiedenen Ebenen gemeinsame Ressourcen zur Lösung des Problems geschaffen, wobei die Unterschiede zwischen den Gesundheitssystemen und ihren Ansätzen in den europäischen Staaten berücksichtigt wurden.  

Dies ist ein Weg, der den europäischen Fortschritt in Zusammenarbeit mit den MS, die ihre Forschung betreiben, fördert und gleichzeitig die zur Lösung dieser Gesundheitskrise erforderlichen Anstrengungen auf internationaler Ebene ausweitet.

Es besteht keine Notwendigkeit für einen autokratischen Prozess oder ein Abdriften autoritärer Macht, deren Ziele nicht sehr klar wären und uns in eine frühere Periode um das 19. Unsere Institutionen, Nationen und Bürger folgen der Kurve des Fortschritts in allen Bereichen, und die Skalen der Wertschätzung von Werten haben sich im Laufe der Jahrzehnte positiv entwickelt, der Einsatz psychologischer oder anderer Techniken zur Rückkehr in die Vergangenheit ist, wie wir wissen, ein professioneller Fehler derer, die solche Methoden anwenden. Lassen Sie uns angesichts dieser egozentrischen Abweichungen wachsam bleiben.

Ich erinnere daran, dass Jesus Christus befreit und heilt; es ist auch eine Dimension!

Libertà, salute, sicurezza,

modi di intendere

Trovare un equilibrio tra libertà e sicurezza è una vecchia storia. I paesi totalitari e liberi non hanno una visione comune su questo, tranne naturalmente in casi di estrema necessità, come ad esempio grandi catastrofi naturali o di altro tipo, o anche NBC.

Alcune nazioni i cui leader calcolatori hanno perso la fede, e forse la bussola o anche la professionalità emersa dalla guerra fredda, si stanno confinando.

C'è, tuttavia, un progresso da parte di alcuni capi di Stato, che ascoltano e cambiano il loro modo di pensare, soprattutto quando vengono messi in atto i pieni poteri? Tuttavia, questi poteri mi sembrano inadeguati all'attuale situazione sanitaria e di salute. In effetti, non si tratta di una guerra, l'argomento è sproporzionato, ma di una situazione sanitaria che deve essere affrontata in campo sociale, scientifico, medico, di laboratorio e farmaceutico.

Come ho fatto notare privatamente all'inizio di questo caso, le domande centrali non hanno avuto risposta, la signora Condoleezza Rice ha posto le domande giuste durante la videoconferenza all'Hoover Institute del 14 aprile 2020. Ovviamente abbiamo visto un po' di ripresa da questo intervento.

Ciò solleva la questione della diagnosi e della valutazione.   

Stando così le cose, è inutile provocare altri Stati, come i cinesi, ma risolvere i problemi della cooperazione internazionale.

 L'Europa ha reagito con lentezza, soprattutto a causa del cambio di Commissione dello scorso luglio 2019 e dell'arrivo di molti giovani inesperti negli affari europei, sia al Consiglio europeo che al Parlamento europeo. Il rinnovamento della generazione politica europea è un fatto di cui bisogna tenere conto.  

Anche se il mandato 2019-2024 sta attraversando un periodo di difficoltà iniziali, tutti gli attori delle istituzioni europee hanno ora il dovere di acquisire e valorizzare la loro esperienza per progredire.  Ciò comporta anche una fase di umiltà in relazione alle ambizioni di pochi. I problemi sono ben noti. Prima di tutto, raccomando di continuare il lavoro della Commissione Junker e poi di procedere passo dopo passo verso sviluppi selezionati e votati concordati dagli Stati membri e dai cittadini.  Per affrontare queste sfide potremo contare sull'esperienza degli attori delle nostre istituzioni, sia dei funzionari pubblici europei, sia dei deputati al Parlamento europeo e degli Stati membri.   

Infine, dopo alcuni mesi di assenza virtuale, sono stati fatti alcuni progressi nell'affrontare il problema della sanità pubblica europea: come la creazione di risorse comuni a diversi livelli per risolvere il problema, tenendo conto delle disparità tra i sistemi sanitari e dei loro approcci negli Stati europei.  

Questo è un percorso che aiuta il progresso europeo, in collaborazione con gli SM che stanno facendo la loro ricerca, estendendo a livello internazionale lo sforzo necessario per risolvere questa crisi sanitaria.

Non c'è bisogno di alcun processo autocratico o di una deriva di potere autoritario, i cui obiettivi non sarebbero molto chiari e ci riporterebbero a un periodo precedente, intorno al XIX secolo.

Le nostre istituzioni, le nazioni e i cittadini stanno seguendo la curva del progresso in tutti i campi, e le scale di apprezzamento dei valori si sono evolute positivamente nel corso dei decenni, l'uso di tecniche psicologiche o di altro tipo per tornare al passato che sappiamo essere una colpa professionale da parte di chi usa tali metodi. Rimaniamo vigili di fronte a queste deviazioni egocentriche.

Ricordo che Gesù Cristo libera e guarisce; è anche una dimensione!

Liberté, santé , sécurité,

chemins de compréhension

Trouver un équilibre entre liberté et sécurité, vieille affaire. Les pays totalitaires et les pays libres n'ont pas de vision commune à ce propos, sauf évidemment en cas d'extrême nécessité, style catastrophe majeure naturelle ou autre, voire NBC.

Certaines nations dont les responsables calculateurs ont perdu la foi, et peut être la boussole voire le professionnalisme issu de la guerre froide, confinent.

Il y a cependant des progrès de la part de certains chefs d'état, qui sont à l’écoute et évoluent dans leurs façon de penser, en particulier lorsque les pleins pouvoirs sont mis en place, cependant, inadéquats à cette présente situation sanitaire et de santé. En effet il ne s'agit pas d'une guerre, le propos est disproportionné, mais d'une situation sanitaire à régler dans les domaines sociétaux, scientifiques, médicaux, laborantins, et pharmaceutiques.

Comme je l’ai signalé dès le départ de cette affa, ire, les questions centrales ne sont pas répondues, Madame Condoleezza Rice a posé les bonnes questions au cours de la visioconférence à l’Institut Hoover le 14 avril 2020. Évidemment on a vu rebondir certains suite à cette intervention.

Cela pose la question du diagnostic et de l’évaluation  

Ceci étant il est inutile de provoquer d'autres états comme les chinois en la matière, mais de résoudre les problèmes en coopération international.

 L'Europe a mis du temps à réagir, du fait notamment du changement de Commission en juillet dernier, et de l'arrivée de nombreux jeunes inexpérimentés en la matière européenne, aussi bien au Conseil Européen et au Parlement Européen. le renouvellement de la génération politique européenne est un fait dont il faut tenir compte.  

Bien que la mandature 2019-2024 connaisse des ratés au démarrage, l'ensemble des acteurs des institutions européennes, ont maintenant le devoir d'acquérir et de bâtir leur expérience pour progresser.  Cela passe aussi par une phase d'humilité par rapport aux ambitions de quelques-uns. Les problèmes sont connus. Dans un premier temps, je préconise la continuité des travaux de la Commission Junker puis de progresser pas à pas vers des évolutions choisies, et votées, agrées par les EM et les citoyens.  

L'on pourra s'appuyer sur les acteurs expérimentés de nos institutions, aussi bien les fonctionnaires européens que les eurodéputés et les Etats membres pour répondre à ces enjeux.   

L'on note enfin, après quelques mois de quasi absence, quelques progrès face à la problématique de santé publique européenne: comme la mise en place de ressources communes de différents niveaux, pour résoudre le problème en tenant compte des disparités entre les systèmes de santé et leur approches dans les états européens.  

C'est un chemin qui aide au progrès européen , en coopération avec les EM qui font leur recherches, et en prolongeant au niveau international l'effort nécessaire à résoudre cette crise sanitaire.

Il n'est nul besoin de quelque procédé autocratique ou de dérive de pouvoir autoritaire, dont les objectifs ne seraient pas très clairs  et ramèneraient à une période antérieure vers le XIX siècle. Nos institutions , nations et citoyens suivent la courbe du progrès tous domaines, et les échelles d'appréciations des valeurs ont évolué de manière positive avec les décennies, l’emploi de techniques psychologiques ou autres pour revenir au passé que l'on connait est une faute professionnelle de la part de ceux qui utilisent de telles méthodes. Restons vigilants face à ces déviation égocentriques

Je rappelle que Jésus Christ libère et guérit; c'est aussi une dimension!

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election
   

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :

imag0282_400

     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   

imag0313_400_01 

This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.       

dati_a_cedh_1_400 

It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"
