*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- The President of "PanEuropa" in Germany, one of the Top MEPs who have Longest served in EU Parliament, and Experienced former Journalist, Bernd Posselt's new Book on Europe is really a "Must", particularly for all those who are or will be attracted by what is really at Stake in the forthcoming EU's "Conference on Europe's Future", during 2020-2022, and the Political Decisions that it's expected to take on Shaping our Continent's foreseable Horizons, hopefully with an Exceptionally Strong and Original input by -and for- active and conscious EU Citizens.

Titled : - "Bernd Posselt describes Europe : History and Persons - Structure and Visions", the 240 Pages-Long Book, written in Deutsch, but deserving to be Translated also in other main European Languages, canNot, and will Not be Resumed here : It deserves much Better, later-on.



But the Collective Event organized in EU Parliament yesterday for the official presentation of that Book by the Experienced President of the Biggest Political Group of MEPs, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Manfred Weber,  and the active Young Austrian MEP, new Chairman of EPP's Working Groups on "PanEuropa" and BioEthics, Lukas Mandl, together with a substantial Resumé by Posselt himself "Live", naturally cannot be ignored at all.


- Many Key Points which must never be forgotten ("nichts vergessen") are artfully described in that New Book on Europe, observed, inter alia, Weber, who Focused, particularly, on the People's Feeling about Europe as Vital part of their "Heimat" (i.e. Fatherland/Motherland).

- As for Mandl, he praised Posselt as a "Real Parliamentarian" during a Record-Long Number of Years, in fact, always active around the "Parliamentarian Arena", as he characteristically said. But also as a European Politician clearly opposed to Both "Populism" and "Centralism", as he described.

- Double-Faced Posselt kicked off his own, long presentation, by a Symbolic Joke about Greeks' debates on whether the Best Original Version of Ancient Christian Texts, was that which said that : - "At the Beginning was the Word", i.e. Journalism, or "Chaos", i.e. Politicians ...

- At any case, "this is Not a Book about Memories", its Author Denied from the outset. Inter alia, also, Because, in fact, there is "an Active Process in Europe", which stems from a Long History, but Still Unfolds and Develops also Nowadays, as Posselt observed.

- However, f.ex., Otto von Habsburg, Cudenhove-Kallergi, Toynbee, Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope emeritus Benedict), Charles de Gaulle, and many other Historic Personalities who have passionately Dealt with Nowadays Europe, are successively Cited by Posselt who knew them, while his Speech unfolds.

- As for the Eternal and Topical Issue of the "European Identity", it's mainly a matter of "Culture", and Associates "3 Spirits" ("Geist") for Bernd Posselt : Ancient Greek, Roman, and (Judeo-) Christian.

- For our foreseable "Future", there are "2 Central Issues : On Unity, and Fatherland/Motherland feeling of the People, he stressed, ("Einheit" + "Heimat").

=> And, in this regard, his Book concludes, Topically (Comp. Supra), with an affirmative, Symbolic proclamation : - "I am a European Citizen !", alias : "Civis Europaeus sum !"...

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates


    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
